ALIGN & FLOW
A different approach to building heat and intensity. Align & Flow classes sculpt and tone the muscles of both body and mind. With an emphasis on alignment as a way to heal old injuries and prevent new ones, you will restore and transform your body. A powerful but intelligent practice that encourages you to cultivate a quality of attention in your asana that you can take out of the studio and into your life.
A flowing and dynamic sequence of postures designed to safely and skillfully lead you out of your head and into your body. Build heat, strength, and endurance as you experience dynamic alignment and a strong connection between movement and breath. This fun, flowing practice will get you moving and sweating without compromising safety.
Light up your spirit by stepping into a beautifully candlelit studio. Nurture your body and soul with a gentle, nourishing flow and a long juicy rest. With only soft light, you will naturally take your journey inward, deeply connecting body, mind & spirit.

Restorative Yoga focuses on relaxing the body in restful postures, giving the body an chance to renew and heal itself. Restorative Yoga helps to trigger the Parasympathetic Nervous System which helps to lower heart rate and blood pressure, and stimulate the immune system. Different to Yin Yoga where the purpose of relaxation is going deeper in a pose, in Restorative Yoga relaxation is for the purpose of relaxation.
SUNRISE SLOW FLOW
A light and creative flow at a slower and more contemplative pace. Expect fluid movement through a variety of postures, gentle breath work, and guided relaxation/meditation. Great for beginners, or for more experienced students who want a gentler practice.
Yin Yoga is a perfect way to balance your more dynamic ‘Yang’ practices at the gym and on the mat. Still yet deeply moving, a Yin practice releases tension and nourishes the body’s non-contractile tissues, while balancing the body’s meridians. Gently nourishing and deeply intense, Yin is often the missing piece in a well-rounded regimen of training or practice. No prior yoga experience necessary, all levels. *May not be suitable for late term pregnancy.
