Scroll Down for Class Descriptions:
Sunday morning Karma class. Donation only. All levels class taught by our newest teachers. Suggested donation is $5-10 but please feel free to pay what you can or simply come practice with us in order to bring more presence, energy and positive moral support.
Sunday Night Restorative Yoga. Bask in blissful relaxation with this soothing combination of seated and reclined postures designed to release tension, promote healing and create calm. A deep sense of relaxation that reaches the central nervous system is crucial for regenerating cells, repairing damage from stress and reconnecting with your inner peace.
ALL LEVELS BASICS & 5$ BASICS. Start with Love. Learn the basics. You have choices in this class. Challenge yourself or focus on relaxation any time during these ‘Basics’ classes. Every level yogi will benefit as you breathe, move, strengthen, balance, release, relax and connect with yourself and others. You’re never too old to learn, never too hurt to heal and it’s never too late for Love. (Basics primarily focuses on the basic postures and breathing tips you might find in any yoga class. For other yoga basics such as the history, philosophy, teaching and trainings, mantras, mudras, bandhas, chakras and more . . . ask about our one day 8 Limbs workshop to go beyond the basics).
GENTLE YOGA. A balanced cycle of focused breathing and moving is key to releasing stress and tension. Gentle yoga combines simple movements with a sense of relaxation and awareness. It’s like riding a bike! Pedal and glide, pedal and glide. Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale. Perfect for beginners or for those seeking stress relief, injury rehab, flexibility, toning and balance. Or just ‘seeking’ in general.
RESTORATIVE. Bask in blissful relaxation with this soothing combination of seated and reclined postures designed to release tension, promote healing and create calm. Throw in a little lavender, (optional), a supportive bolster and a bit of shiatsu for a completely meditative experience. A deep sense of relaxation that reaches the central nervous system is crucial for regenerating cells, repairing damage from stress and rejuvenating your ability to thrive. Cultivating santosha* is the perfect complement to other more vigorous forms of exercise. (*Santosha: contentment, satisfaction and acceptance).
STRONG FLOW Venture beyond the basics to challenge your body and your mind. Longer trails, higher peaks, twists and turns and cliffhangers! (i.e. more advanced sequences, deeper twists, and balance poses). Getting off the beaten path will provide many opportunities in this strong vinyasa flow to expand your horizons by believing in yourself and encouraging others. Let’s do this together – Strong bodies, Smart Minds!
FLOW/NIDRA Beginning with a smooth yoga flow session to get you moving and breathing with focus… and finishing with a yoga nidra session to guide you into a deep meditative relaxing state of mind.
MEDITATION. Feel the Space! Feel the freedom of holding still in the privacy of a dedicated space. Ten minutes of introductory tips and techniques and a little neuroscience to get you started and then 20 minutes of blissfully, golden silence. Take a deep breath, let out a big sigh and say it with us . . . Ahhhhhhhhhhhh. That might be the only mantra you ever need.
***POWER YOGA builds your strength from the inside out. YOU are empowering yourself. Think Mental to Muscle, Spine to Skin, Cell to Soul. It’s not fast and furious… it’s building endurance and resilience with a strong flow, arm balances, inversions and balance postures. It’s a solid blend of Tapas and Ahimsa, fueling the fires without getting burned.
***WARM FLOW Keeping things warm. (not hot) This class will simultaneously fire you up and calm you down. Building core strength creates total body stability from the way you stand, to the way you twist, bend, lift, curl and breathe. Centering starts here, the warmth just feels good.
CHAKRA TAI CHI is a combination of a 30-minute tai chi session followed by a seated acupressure session with a registered nurse. Relaxing, healing, soulful and energizing.
KIDS YOGA It’s a jungle out there and our kids already know it. Here at Love they’ll learn the strength of their bones, the power of their breath, the sound of their heartbeat. They revel in a guided relaxation at the end of every class that leaves them with a strong sense of self and serenity. (Okay, sometimes it takes more than one session).
YOGA ALIGNMENT Each class will cover a variety of postures and concepts intended to help fine tune alignment for variations or modifications of practice. Customized adjustments and personal assessments available. Standing postures, hip openers, core, arm balances and sun salutations will be rotated through these classes monthly. Ask for rotation schedule. Time for Q&A as well.
LUNCH TIME FLOW Balance out your day with this 45-minute flow at Noon. Energetic but not sweaty. Calm but not Restorative. Flow without Force… and still time for Savasana.
*** Strong classes, some yoga experience recommended.
