Santosha Yoga Practice (Amy)

Santosha (contentment in Sanskrit) is the focus in this all-levels class.  Amy’s class will begin with centering and breath work.  Hands-on adjustments and alignment cues will be offered to encourage a deeper understanding of the yoga practice. Every class will offer something a little different, some classes working toward arm balances or hip openers, for example, and others working toward inversions.  However, modifications and tools are offered when students choose not to explore the offered poses.

This class is taught in a warm room.  All levels are welcome here and are supported in finding contentment in their yoga practice!


Mindful Power Flow (Pat)

Join this fun, energizing, and challenging class where you’ll progress toward heart-opening back bends, arm balances, deep hip openers, and inversions in the comfort of a warm room. While this is not a gentle yoga class, modifications and physical adjustments will be offered when appropriate. Students are encouraged to go as deeply as they want, while maintaining safe, individualized alignment. Adventurous beginners as well as experienced yogis are welcome!

Satya Flow (Lisa)

A fun, flowing style of yoga infusing a holistic and energetic approach, igniting peace, harmony and empowerment.  Emphasis is placed upon mastering the mind through inner mantra (yoga pose for the mind) to create a “meditation in motion.” Breathing practices and visualizations are integrated throughout the class to compassionately guide the student to a blissful state of being.

Free to Move (Pat or Amy)

This is a “pay what you can” interpretative dance class.   During the class the students will collaborate to design ways to open and ground the body, find ease in the joints, and fluidity and creativity in movement.  The dancers encourage and support each other in studies of self-expression as well as explorations in groups or with partners.  This class is open to everyone, no experience is necessary.

Body in Motion (Instructor varies)

Drawing on a variety of influences, this class will emphasize moving with ease in the joints and developing a grounded, neutral body with an increased range of movement. Explorations that include technique, improvisation, composition and theoretical concepts will guide students toward “being available to the dancing moment”. There will also be an exploration of musical time and rhythms with use of a variety of music styles. Our goal in the dance is to translate “inner-worlds” to the outer, to speak clearly, generously and authentically with our movement voices. This class is open to everyone, no experience is necessary.


Yoga Alignment Basics (with Pat and by request)

This class is designed for students who are new to yoga or for those who would like a refresher course in the basics of yoga.  Students will learn about alignment, breathing techniques and philosophy.  This class is not a gentle class.  It is intended to be a gateway to the Mindful Power Flow class.
