Vinyasa Vinyasa means "to place in a special way." Vinyasa was developed in India by Krishnamacharya who was a teacher to Ashtanga founder Pattabhi Jois. Asana's ( yoga poses) are placed in flows at a faster pace. We move through Sun Salutations, vinyasa flows, standing balance, twists, forward folds, core work and deep stretching. We have beginner, all levels and advanced classes. In all levels and up it is common to begin to work on arm balancing poses like crow and firefly as well as inversions like headstand, forearm stand and handstand. Vinyasa is a fun style with fun music with importance placed on breath, alignment and form. Classes are different every time, there is no set sequence. Rocket Rocket is a western form of traditional Ashtanga Yoga. Rocket is very versatile and shares qualities with many other styles. It is like Vinyasa in the freedom of expression within the poses. While Ashtanga can be intimidating, Rocket is accessible to all, allowing modifications to help individualize the postures. Making it appropriate for every body. It is both hard and soft. Like Ashtanga, Rocket is a breathing practice. The founder of Rocket is Larry Shultz who was the yoga teacher for the grateful dead. They would ask Larry for something new, besides the primary series of Ashtanga. Larry began to play with the Ashtanga series and they loved it. Bob Weir coined the term "Rocket", because "it gets you there faster" Rocket can help you connect to your breath, deepen your practice on all levels, get you away from the way in your inversions and build strength. The practice is designed to stimulate the sympathetic nervous system, to wake you up, energize you, and leaves you feeling happy! Join out teachers Janell Duncan and Kim Gibson in a Rocket Class Soon! Rocket has 3 sequences, 1 is focus on forward folds, 2 is focus on backbends, and is a combination of 1 and 2.

Gentle This class is preformed almost entirely on the floor with the use of chairs when needed. Great for seniors and provides a nice break more vigourus styles. Yin A more restorative practice with longer holds of poses. Physically yin yoga is working on our connective tissues and fascia, we must hold poses for longer 3-7 minutes to allow release to happen. Can help with pain, flexibility, insomnia, anxiety and more. Yin is based in Traditional Chinese Medicine which follows energy lines called merdians in the body. These lines on energy flow through and are associated with the organs. This every is Qi (or Chi) and its healthy flow is associated with radiant health. Restorative Restorative yoga is similar to Yin, in that we hold poses for a long period of time with the use of props. However Restorative Yoga is designed to help the muscles completely relax. Like 'laying on a cloud", we don't come to our edge in any stretch, we back away and allow the body to melt. Restorative poses are held even longer than yin, up to 5-10 minutes each. Yoga Nidra Yoga Nidra means Yoga Sleep. The ulitimate relaxation. Students are taken through verbal cues that put each part of the body to rest. Bringing the student into a state of conscious deep sleep. This brings fresh awareness to the thoughts and emotions and leaves the student feeling refreshed and restored.
