Sunset Yoga          Monday 6 p.m.

We delve into the myriad benefits of yoga practice through basic pranayama (breathing practices); yoga sequences emphasizing alignment, breathing, and conscious movement; and reflection on yoga philosophy as it applies in our practice and in our daily lives. We strive to make each class a well-rounded session that leaves every participant feeling relaxed, renewed, and well-nourished in body, mind, and spirit. Moderate intensity; some knowledge of yoga helpful but not required.

GentleFlow Yoga          Tuesday and Friday 9 a.m.
Introductory level class, allowing for growth and variations as your personal practice progresses. Focus on principles of alignment in basic yoga poses. Introduction to meditation for stress reduction and introduction to yoga philosophy. No prior yoga experience necessary.

Meditation & Yoga Philosophy      Wednesday 11:15 a.m.

Increase mindfulness in asana practice and daily life through sitting meditation and the discussion of yogic philosophy. We will begin with twenty-minute sittings, followed by reading the Bhagavad Gita. Feel free to come early to settle in and quiet mid-week fluctuations.
Free. All are welcome.

Ashtanga Yoga Level 1                     Wednesday 6 p.m.

Ashtanga Yoga links postures with the movement of breath, bringing balance, strength, & flexibility to our physical, mental, & spiritual bodies. This is a more traditional yoga practice where a set of poses are given in a specific order. Classes begin with Sun Salutations then standing postures and end with some seated postures from the Ashtanga primary series. This is a great class for beginners and for more experienced students who wish to create a strong foundation by working on the basics.

Satsang: Meditation, Energy, Ritual        Thursday 6 p.m.

Satsang: Sanskrit word loosely translated to mean, "in the company of truth", spiritual discourse or sacred gathering".
Join us for our weekly satsang as we explore, from a Yogic perspective, elements of ritual practice, endeavor to come to a clearer understanding of the nature of our energetic universe, & expand consciousness & serenity through meditation & discussion of Yogic philosophies & concepts. Explore how establishing a meditation practice, simple ritual, & energetic balance can positively affect your health & vitality, while deepening your spiritual practices.

Saturday Morning Yoga          Saturday 10 a.m.
A silent space for meditation, contemplation, or rest greets those who come before the 10:00 start of our Saturday Morning practice. This class is designed to develop self-awareness through a variety of classical yoga poses & practices. We focus on strength, balance, and flexibility, within a framework of mental & emotional equanimity. Class begins with a brief meditation period and readings from yoga and other spiritual texts that encourage us to take our practice from the mat into the world. All levels welcome.
