Dress to sweat. Both the Hot Yoga and the Vinyasa Flow are
conducted in heated rooms.
Bring a towel, plenty of water
and wear clothes that are suitable for hot conditions.
Some people do not eat anything three hours before class
and other eat lightly to maintain blood sugar levels.
Be sure to drink water a few hours before class so you
are well hydrated.
Our students are on many levels of ability including being
new to the practice of yoga and those that have been doing
yoga for many years.
Our youngest student is eight years
old and we have people practicing who are in their seventies.
Arrive 20 minutes early for your first class to sign up. Shoes
are removed once you enter the lobby. We have separate
dressing rooms for men and women.
Take the tour. We do
not have a place to lock valuables but our facilities are safe
from outside foot traffic.
This is a class designed to inform the new student through experience of the foundations of yoga asasna (posture).
The sequencing of asana and for the reuniting of a seasoned student with their basic body mechanics.
The Hot class is a static series which basically means there is a rest between postures. It is taught in a hotter room (approximately 105-110).
There is typically a few more standing and standing single leg series included in this class than you would find in a flow or yin.
If you like to move, this class is for you. The flow class is a series of postures linked by vinyasa (flow) or salutations (sun salutes).
With the pace of a flow class there is an implied different process of breathing, cardiovascular work, and heating the room.
The room is cooler in a flow class and the movement tends to raise the humidity of the room.
Our teachers bring a variety of styles and experience to their flow classes (power, Ashtanga, Baron Baptiste, Rusty Wells etc)…so you won’t have to worry about getting bored.
The general idea of a Yin class is to combine passive stretch with Hatha Yoga postures. In other words, this class will open you up through a series of deep stretches held for an extended period of time.
The room is typically cooler than a flow class but there are teachers that will bring in a little more heat than others.
This class is great for counterbalancing all of the compression and poor alignment our major joints suffer daily.
