Vinyasa Yoga

Synchronize breath with movement through an active sequence of sun salutations and postures. The continuous flow, with an emphasis on proper alignment, increases endurance and will help you find the edge of your balance and flexibility.

Yoga for Energy

In addition to improving sleep quality, relieving stress and anxiety and improving overall physical health, yoga can also be an excellent natural energy-booster.  Active poses that stimulate the blood flow through the body — particularly those that gently stretch the spine — can help combat fatigue and boost feelings of vitality, and might also help to counter some of the effects of long periods of sitting.

Strength and Renewal Yoga

This class focuses on alignment and learning how to really use breath to find your best stretch and to improve your strength in each yoga pose.
