Our yoga classes blend essential elements of hatha yoga with individual teachers having their own influences. More specific class styles are:
COMMUNITY: Our offering
to those that live and work in the community. Open to all levels.
FORREST: Helps students
connect to their core, while getting strong and centered. Deep breathing
and vigorous sequences allow students to release toxins, while extended
holds in each pose flush, oxygenate and rejuvenate every cell.
IYENGAR: Uses props to help
you stretch, strengthen, relax, improve alignment, and hold postures without
strain. It also teaches the holistic benefits of specific postures.
KUNDALINI: Is the yoga of awareness.
Each class consists of an opening mantra, pranayam (breath awareness),
and the main kriyas - all of which are strengthening, balancing and
revitalizing. The focus of the class
is not about outward

which watches the flow of breath and thoughts while in a seated posture.
Each class will include instruction, group questions and sharing. Recommended
for all levels as a perfect adjunct to a yoga asana practice.

based exercises designed to strengthen the core and improve posture.
PRE-NATAL: Classes for
the mother-to-be offering gentle yoga postures and breath work to cultivate
health and calmness for both mother and child.
SVACCHANDA YOGA: Svacchanda
Yoga means “Yoga of Own Will”, and denotes the yogin’s
perfect state of freedom. Founded by David Scholz, this yoga features
strong emphasis on biomechanical principles of alignment while
encouraging yogins to practice at their own stage of development within
a multi-level, class-led, structured framework. By weaving together
different levels of proficiency in a way that celebrates gifts and
inspires growth, Svacchanda Yoga invites and thrives on the attendance
of yogins and yoginis at all levels—from beginners to the most advanced.
Each of David's Svacchanda Yoga classes feature some arcane piece
of yogic wisdom, storytelling and humor, mantra, mudra, meditation and
RESTORATIVE: A series of
restful postures using bolsters and blankets to fully support the body.
This class will deeply relax and renew the spirit.
TAI CHI: Sometimes called
Taoist yoga, tai chi is a quiet moving meditation that involves gentle
rhythmic movements. Utilize this practice to cultivate coordination, joint
health, and an equanimous mind, as well as sensitivity to the ebb and flow
of universal Qi.
TIBETAN HEART YOGA: Combines
physical yoga poses with traditional Tibetan Buddhist teachings intended
to cultivate positive qualities such as wisdom and compassion in the practitioner.
VINYASA: The breath
is the heart of this discipline and links asana to asana in a flowing movement.
YIN YOGA: The emphasis
is on long-held passive stretching to enhance flexibility in the connective
tissue that forms our joints. This deep meditative practice complements
many physical activities.
