OM 1 (Vinyasa Yoga)
Our Vinyasa Yoga Class is a fun and easy-going 60 minutes class for all levels practiced in a warm room (80-85 degrees). The asanas are based on traditional postures and are built around finding your inner and outer balance with a focus on alignment, strength, and flexibility. Vinyasa yoga takes a series of postures and combines them in a way that is almost dance-like, linking breath with movement. This practice can become like a moving-meditation which leads to tremendous physical and mental health benefits. The “flow” of yoga poses will vary depending on the yoga teacher and/or theme of the class; sometimes more dynamic and fluid while other times the pace might be slower with more of a focus on stillness and static holds. Each teacher has unique styling and they are encouraged to teach authentically and from their hearts. Modifications and progressions will be offered so each student may find their unique “edge” and variation of the posture.
OM 2 (Vinyasa Yoga)
HEATED or NON-HEATED
Our Level 2 Vinyasa Yoga class builds on the foundation set in Om 1 and is for those students comfortable and acquainted with basic yoga postures. This class is offered both heated (95-102 degrees and warmed ~85 degrees). This class is invigorating in nature and is directed at creating heat within the body with a focus on core strengthening. Om 2 lets us respect our boundaries, yet pushes us to confront our “edge,” working with our bodies, not against them. The class offers a vigorous cardiovascular and muscular workout while also utilizing heat to relax, detoxify, and gain greater depth in each asana.
OM FUSION (SET SERIES)
OM SLOW FLOW
Open to all levels of practice and abilities, our soothing gentle class focuses on an exploration of basic yoga poses and how to connect them through attention to breathing, alignment and mindfulness. Therapeutic in nature, you will learn techniques to help you gain flexibility, while immersing yourself in a relaxing class that moves at a perfectly slower pace – allowing ample time to enjoy each pose. Meditation, breathing, and relaxation techniques will also be introduced; perfect for stress relief, injury healing, and overall well being. This class also incorporates the use of blocks, bolsters, blankets, and other props to assist and further deepen the experience of the poses. Beginner friendly.
HOUSE FLOW (Set Series)
Our HOUSE FLOW draws from Vinyasa Yoga, Traditional Hot Yoga, and Hatha Yoga to combine the best of all worlds. HOUSE FLOW is a set series class—meaning you will move through the same series of postures in the same order every class. A set series allows you to focus more on breath, transitions, and alignment as your body becomes familiar with the flow. Each teacher is encouraged to bring their own unique perspective and theming to enhance the experience of each class. Students will be challenged in the moderately paced, heated class with emphasis on developing greater strength, flexibility, and inner awareness, gaining a total body, mind, and spirit experience.
OM RESTORE (Restorative Yoga)
Our yin-style class offers poses that are meditative, nurturing, and restorative in nature. A majority-if not all- poses will be floor-based and each posture will be held for 3-5 minutes to fully allow the body and mind to relax, go deeper, and let go. These longer, static, and more passive holds work on the connective tissues of the body which include the ligaments, fascia, joints and bones while also providing benefit to our nervous and circulatory systems. Breathwork is incorporated throughout class and the body will often-times be supported with props such as blankets, bolsters, blocks, and straps. Both soothing and regenerating in nature, restorative poses help bring balance to our demanding daily lives. This class is a great compliment to a more vigorous “yang” practice, and is also great for injury healing and prevention, for recovery from mental and/or physical illnesses, for healing for traumatic life events, or for prevention and mending of whatever else might cause a state of dis-ease in your life.
VIN/YIN (1.25 HOUR CLASS)
Our VIN/YIN class will blend the complementary and opposing forces of yin and yang to create a balanced well-rounded yoga experience. In yoga, yin is feminine, cooling, gentle, and still while yang is described as masculine, heating, vigorous, and moving. This class will start with the strong movement and active flow of an OM 2 class incorporating the yang principles of Chinese philosophy and then will move into a more yin practice, slowing things down into restorative and static postures. This class provides a sweet combination of different yoga styles to facilitate harmony in the body, mind, and spirit.
Our high energy and intense cross-training class will challenge your whole body by providing a tailored workout to hit every major and minor muscle group. By mixing cardio--utilizing high-intensity interval training (HIIT)--and strength training exercises, you will send your metabolism into high gear while the fun music and group-training environment will kick up the fun-factor. This boot camp-like class uses your own body weight, free weights, and the latest fitness tools to complement your yoga or other athletic endeavors, or it is also perfect as a stand-alone workout routine. Be prepared to get sweaty, get sculpted, and take your workout to the next level. Shoes required.

This is a gentle all-levels class. Modifications and props will be used to ease into postures if needed.
FLOW INTO STILLNESS
Yoga postures (asana) are traditionally done to prepare the body to sit in stillness for prolonged periods of meditation. Our physical practice allows the body to move, get its “jitters” out, gain flexibility and balance, and awaken our breath. Once our body feels more open, balanced, strong, and flexible, it is said that it is now ready for a meditative or mindfulness practice. Meditation is a conscious way of controlling the outgoing tendency of the mind, making it one-pointed and inward, and attaining perfect silence (Swami Rama). Mindfulness is about putting down our multi-tasking tendencies to embrace the beauty and calm that comes with being present in each and every moment in the NOW. This class will follow the traditional yogic path; the class will start with 30 minutes of movement and breath-work to prepare the body to then sit quietly for the last 30 minutes of class. The meditative portion will usually start with a guided meditation or mindfulness practice (introducing you to many different ways to enter into stillness), could possibly have a discussion section, and then will be followed by at least 10 minutes of pure silence and stillness. This class is for everyone, no previous experience is needed.
ASHTANGA YOGA SERIES
