These Iyengar-influenced classes work on correct form in a broad assort- ment of Hatha yoga poses as well as introduce breath (pranayama) and relaxation techniques. This is the most common form of yoga practiced in the United States. It combines posture, sequences of postures, and breath control to bring the body into proper alignment and to gracefully open the heart, spine, and soul. By connecting the mind, body, and breath, the student begins an inward journey and is, consequently, personally trans- formed. Ideal for beginners or those who want a moderately paced class.
A mindful practice with familiar hatha yoga poses and breath shaped into various flowing sequences that will spread awareness and love into your body and mind. All levels.
Prajna Yoga is a system-less system. No two classes are ever the same. The idea is to be sensitive to the practitioner, the time of day, the seasons and other phenomena for guidance in practice. The specific style of a Prajna yoga class is dynamic yogic study, compassionate self-inquiry, and mindful "slow core" practice. In class we practice classical yoga poses, both active and restorative, sensory awareness training, chanting and meditation. No specific style or predictable format will be offered, classes will vary each week. There is a philosophical theme from the wisdom teachings woven thru the class and in this way all aspects of body, mind and spirit are exercised, relaxed and inspired.
Yoga is for everyone. No one is too old or too stiff, too fat or thin or tired. A Certified Iyengar Yoga teacher can guide students of all ages and physical conditions to an experience of yoga, which is safe, accessible and rewarding.
Certified Iyengar Yoga instructors are held to an unusually rigorous standard. Only after years of training and evaluation do they become certified. Iyengar Yoga teachers modify the classic asanas (yoga postures) for individual students with the use of props -- such as blocks, blankets and belts. Props allow for a deeper penetration into the posture, as well as a longer stay.
Iyengar Yoga teachers use their deep-seated knowledge of the asanas to individualize corrections for each student. Students know they are observed and, if necessary, adjusted. Clear demonstrations of the posture. A well-developed eye. Specific teaching points which awaken the body's intelligence -- these are the marks of an Iyengar Yoga teacher.
Students of Iyengar Yoga begin with elementary postures, with an emphasis on the standing asanas (postures). In time, other postures are added, including forward bends and back bends, twists, inversions and restorative poses. Salamba Sarvangasana (Shoulder Balance) is introduced as soon as students are ready because of its many therapeutic benefits. Each class ends with Savasana, corpse pose or deep relaxation. Students learn to rest in a profound way, completely releasing the body while drawing the mind towards the peace within.
As the student progresses, Pranayama (the control of the breath) is introduced.
Teachers devise sequences of poses, which build skill and understanding, from posture to posture, and from class to class. Students are encouraged to develop their own home practice; without one, the study of yoga is incomplete.
A nurturing class designed to meet the changing needs of pregnancy. This class is a wonderful opportunity for pregnant women to share their experiences, connect with their developing baby, and prepare for childbirth through movement, relaxation and breath techniques.
Slow Flow is a gentle and energizing practice that opens and awakens the body and mind linked by the breath. By slowing down the pace the practitioner can explore the postures in more depth. This class is ideal for students of all levels to slowly and mindfully move through a series.
Slow Flow classes provide a balance of flowing movement and breath awareness with a slow and steady pace, intended to induce deep relaxation. These classes are for all levels and provide a perfect way to unwind or for a new student to try yoga in a slow, supportive and welcoming environment.The class will wind down with relaxing restorative poses designed to help melt away stress.

Yin Yoga is a complementary yoga practice to the more dynamic and invigorating yoga styles that are predominant today. In Yin Yoga, floor postures are held passively for several minutes in order to access a safe and positive 'stress' on the deep layers of connective tissue in the body. Physically, Yin Yoga restores and maintains the natural mobility of the joints, primarily between the navel and the knees. Energetically, Yin Yoga opens the body’s meridian system, which enhances the body’s energetic flow and supports emotional equilibrium. And as this practice emphasizes stillness and silence, Yin Yoga prepares both the body and the mind for deeper experiences in meditation. For more info see yinyoga.com

In this class you will learn new ways to work with the rope walls, which will aid in developing your practice further. In the Iyengar method, working on the ropes is called Yoga Kurunta, which translates as 'yoga puppet.' You use the play of the ropes on the body to lengthen the spine and move more deeply into the asanas. They can ground, anchor and let you fly!
