Doors open 10 minutes prior to class start time, so please arrive by 7:10pm! to fill out a waiver form (for your first class – photo ID required), sign in, pay, warm up and get settled. Classes typically run 75-90 minutes. Following class, we often gather for dinner afterwards – all are welcome to join, everyone is responsible for their own tab, and each week the group decides where to go after class.

Class Descriptions

  • For Beginners:
    Our Beginner yoga class is focused on some of the basic and most frequently used asanas in Hatha Yoga. We explore postures, taking the time to explain body alignment with a pace which encourages questions and answers during class.  It encourages each yogi’s exploration of balancing energies of the Mind, Body and Spirit, through breath and movement.  Beginner’s classes are suitable for the First Timer to yoga, as well as the yogi who wishes a refresher.
  • Hatha Flow:
    Our Hatha Flow classes begin with centering and focus on breath work as the means to meet the challenges of a Vinyasa flow which may involve standing postures, twists, forward bends, back bends, inversions, and balancing, wrapping up with a final relaxation. These classes are geared toward all levels of yoga experience.

  • Partner Yoga:
    You need not bring a partner unless you wish to. You be paired with a partner for class. In our Partner Yoga classes, participants are paired up to incorporate the personal growth of a solo yoga practice with exploration of growth in relationship (not just in terms of intimate relationship, but also in terms of relationship with the wider human community). Each pose is done with a partner to explore resistance, cooperation and, in some cases, finding much deeper expressions of familiar poses.  Our partner yoga classes are suitable for the intermediate yoga practitioner.

    The practice of partner yoga also delves into healing sensuality and touch, which so many of us crave at a deep, intrinsic level and which so few of us receive enough of. Finally, partner yoga is a practice in moving gracefully into intuition and feeling.

If you have questions or want to join the group, please send us an email and one of our members will be in touch with you.
