Twist to Release

This class focuses on the spine, specifically in the thoracic area. Use the next 45 minutes to explore movements through the middle back such as twisting, opening and closing the chest and side bend while keeping the lower back (lumbar spine) in place.

Get ready to release your spine and feel a lot lighter after class.

Yoga for the Face

There are 43 muscles in the face, it’s a lot.  In this short class, you will release tension from the face and the neck.  This brings psychological benefit and also helps to keep the face vibrant and young.


The face, jaw, and neck are parts of the body that hold a lot of tension and learning to release and relax them can have great benefits. The techniques of Simha Mudra, Jiva Bandha, and Brahma Mudra are introduced.


We work all the other muscles of the body in yoga, why not the face?

We must create space before moving in. This flow allows us to explore how depth can only come from relaxation and openness. Find ease in making your backbends more spacious.

Once connected the traditional pranayama begins with Sitali, calming and soothing.

Calm and connect to your deeper self.

Lower Body Love

We often think of a vinyasa class having a lot of focus on upper body strength. Well, get ready to bring the attention to your legs. From balancing to strengthening sequences, the next 40 minutes will be all about making your legs shake (in a good way).
Ashtanaga yoga

Short Ashtanga Practice

If you are short of time, a shorter yoga routine is of course much better than no yoga at all. You start this session with still sitting to get grounded before start building up heat with Surya namaskar Continuing with forward folds, twists and to finish of with a couple rounds back bends.

Deep Relaxation Practice

The purpose of this class is real, deep relaxation. Nourishing your nervous system and replenishing your energy.


We use a mixture of simple meditation and hatha yoga techniques, including some kriyas (which are defined as cleansing exercises - cleansing to the nervous system).


By working with our bodies with intelligence and understanding of the nervous system we can all bring ourselves to deep relaxation.

Week 4

Push and Release

In this workout, we continue to explore different ways to play with chaturanga. Have fun working out while using yoga postures such as navasana, chaturanga, and flowing through vinyasas.

Release Tension From the Hips - Mellow Edition

Does what it says. A sequence for when you are not feeling like a vigorous class that creates tons of heat, but you still want to unravel tension that has accumulated throughout the day in the area around the hips.

Asana Based Hatha Class

This class is designed to both strengthen and increase suppleness.  The traditional Hatha approach is slower and we take a resting pose between the more demanding poses.


The slowness and time to digest the poses create a more meditative environment and we try to do some of the poses with our eyes closed.


Strengthen Your Hamstrings

Stop just stretching your hamstrings, you need to strengthen them too. This 45 minute practice is dedicated to the back of the legs. Use regular yoga postures with a twist to engage your hamstrings creating stability and strength.

Hips and Shoulders

This class focuses on hip flexion and shoulder extension, among lots more. Start by moving through a flow where we take our shoulders into active extension, internal and external rotation. Then work through the rest of the class moving your shoulders mindfully while adding some hip strengthening drills. 
Malasana

Jump into Malasana

This 45-minute class focuses on malasana - the yogi squat. Not just on sitting down low but in activating the legs and feet to sit strong. Move in and out of this posture as you transition into the rest of the flow and feel your pulse rising as you jump back and forth from malasana to downward facing dog. Then warm up your hips a bit more before you try bhujangasana, an arm balancing posture.
