Yoga

Astanga Yoga

A unique combination of breathing & flowing movements, which create a high-energy workout. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.
Astanga Yoga is a 90 minute Practice.
 

Core Flow

This class fuses together Pilates and Yoga to form a unique combination forming both practices into one, connecting mind and body. You will be invigorated and revitalized with each session, feeling lighter, stronger and more relaxed after each class. If you are seeking cross training that integrates a focus on core strengthening, while still being mindful of your center this is the practice for you. Fusion Flow will focus primarily on opening the hips and lower back in order to have better access to the deep core musculature. 60 minutes for the advanced/intermediate &
45 minutes for beginner/intermediate.
 

Functional Yoga

Functional Yoga is a yoga based class with a strong infusion of small muscle activation. This class is great for those who are dealing with or recovering from injury, athletes looking to add to their cross training routine, as well as the everyday yogi. This is a 60 minute class.
Class lengths vary from 75min-90min.
 

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa is a type of yoga that links movement and breath to attain balance in the mind and body. From the Sanskrit “to place in a special way,” vinyasa aligns a deliberate sequence of poses with the breath to achieve a continuous flow. Inhalation is usually connected to upward, open movements, while exhalation is often tied to downward movements or twists.
Vinyasa Yoga connects one posture to the next using the breath.  This can be thought of as linking or flowing into postures.  
“Transitions” are what connect one posture to another in Vinyasa.  They are the in-between part.  What is not always appreciated is that transitions are considered postures themselves.  To move in a more graceful, connected way, allot just as much time developing skill in the transitions as you do in the asana.
Vinyasa is synonymous with movement.  Moving in and out of postures is the obvious movement but even in stillness Vinyasa is represented by the beat of your heart and inhale/exhale of your breath.
