Hot Yoga (All Levels)

Hot Yoga, which is suitable for beginners as well as experienced practitioners, consists of a set sequence of poses sometimes referred to as the ‘Hot 26’. Whether it is a 60 (Express), 75 or 90 minute class, the postures remain the same each time; And, in the 75 and 90 minute versions the poses are offered twice in a row in order to allow one to go deeper. Practiced in a room maintained at a temperature range of 105° – 110° Fahrenheit and 35 – 50 percent humidity, the Hot Yoga class is the highest temperature wise which allows the body to open even while moving at a slower pace.  As there are no sun salutations in this class, it is an ideal alternative for those recovering from wrist or shoulder issues.  This therapeutic and invigorating practice is a full body workout that not only aids in releasing toxins from the body while stretching and strengthening muscles, but which improves circulation and mobility of joints.

 

Warm Align (Beginner/Intermediate)

A slower and more subdued version of the Gentle Flow class, the main focus of Warm Align is proper alignment. This class is ideal for both beginners seeking to learn the fundamentals and intermediate students seeking a more low-tempo class. Variations on the sun salutations will be practiced but some of the more advanced poses will not be offered. A room temperature of 90° – 98° Fahrenheit is maintained to aid in loosening tight muscles and the use of props is encouraged to obtain optimal alignment.

 

Gentle Flow (Intermediate)

Geared towards students seeking a slightly slower approach to Vinyasa yoga, Gentle Flow links poses to breath to reveal body awareness through a fluid sequence led at an intermediate pace.  Do not be fooled by the ‘gentle’ in the title though, as these are challenging classes! Also known as an ‘open level’ class, beginners are encouraged to utilize modifications in poses while intermediate and advanced students are offered more challenging variations on poses.  The temperature ranges from 90° – 98° Fahrenheit and individuals are open to practice at an intensity of their own specific ability, which will allow them to find a sense of balance and revitalization through the process.

 

Vinyasa (Intermediate/Advanced)

Vinyasa is a dynamic type of yoga that moves at a quicker pace and links breath with movement while following a progressive flow of one posture to the next. Sequences consist of sun salutations, forward bends, backbends and twists and may also include some inversions and arm balances. Practiced in a room maintained at 95° – 100°  Fahrenheit, this challenging sequence of poses helps to build strength, flexibility, endurance  and body awareness. Prior yoga experience is highly recommended for this class.

 

Calisthenics & Wall Yoga (Intermediate/Advanced)

This class takes a very different approach to traditional yoga and is more like a mini-workshop.  Practiced at a temperature  between 95° – 100°  Fahrenheitit incorporates core building moves such as push-ups and plank pose practiced rhythmically and intertwines poses that provide for greater flexibility as well.  The first half of class is dedicated to building strength and flexibility through floor exercises, while the latter half brings yogi’s to the wall in order to utilize it as a prop to  further build on the foundation required to properly practice advanced poses including inversions, arm balances and splits.
