Community Collective Classes
Stuck at a desk even while you're working from home? Or, perhaps getting up and down from the floor is not something you can do with ease. This class modifies poses to be enjoyed seated, bringing the benefits of Yoga off the floor and into a chair. 60 Minutes.

This is the predominant branch of Yoga being taught in Western cultures, with the main focus being mastery of the body through physical asanas (postures). Ha meaning ‘Sun’ and tha meaning ‘Moon’, hatha classes offer a balanced mind-body experience and draw on many of the rich schools of thought of yoga asana. The well-rounded sequences temper heat and strength with ease and stillness, addressing the body and mind in equal measure. 60 Minutes -75 Minutes
Levels 1 & 2
Intro to Yoga
A true beginners class, Intro to Yoga will create a solid foundation for your new Yoga practice. This class not only introduces yoga postures, breathing techniques and philosophy, it makes space for the student to ask questions during the class (not typical in most classes) and receive instruction on everything from which side of the mat faces up, to how Yoga can affect your autonomic nervous system and increase neuroplasticity. 60 Minutes.
Simply step away from your desk for a 50 minute practice based on the Primary Series, a traditional yoga practice which helps you to build up endurance and strength, create heat in the body, detoxify, reduce bloating, and increase digestive fire. You will burn off the dross of the day and finish feeling light, strong, open, energized, and cleansed to get on with your beautiful day.
Mat required. Two Yoga Blocks and a Strap highly recommended.
When we sit in meditation, the noise/chatter inside our heads quiets, worry takes a back seat, to-do lists move to the back of our conscience.

This, and so much more is the beauty, the power, the splendor and the gift of meditation.
Each week you will learn a variety of different time tested techniques. 60 Minutes.
