NEW FOR 2024!!!
After requests from several students, we will now offer a weekly online reformer class! The class will not be offered live, but will be recorded at the beginning of each week and will be available to view for 7 days after. To sign up for this class, you'll see it listed on the schedule Mondays at 7am as "Zoom Reformer Recording". Please sign up for this class before 7am Monday if you plan to receive the recording for the week. If there are less than 2 registrants by then, there will be no recorded class for that week. Regular class pricing applies!
While there are several class options for beginners to choose from, this class is the one that's geared specifically toward those who are new or newer to Yoga or who want to get back to the roots of the practice. We'll dig into the fundamental concepts of an asana (posture) practice including breath work, some philosophy and flow at a much more informative and slower pace than other classes. This allows for plenty of time for personal modifications, assistance, exploration, and for the roots to take hold. This class is perfect for those who wish to feel the comfort and camaraderie of being able to grow with other new students in a supportive environment.
Santosha is contentment. This is an all-levels, Hatha style, feel-good Yoga class that celebrates all that our bodies are capable of, and, even the things they aren't! What do you need today? Let go of striving for what you don't have and accept where you are and what you have now. This practice will be slow and steady to give you plenty of time to move from and be in postures. Modifications will be offered as we work on building strength and endurance as well as balance and flexibility. There will also be dedicated time for breath work to help you leave feeling balanced and at peace with what is.
Half movement, half stillness. In this class, we'll begin with a moderate Vinyasa practice to warm the body and slightly fatigue the muscles. This will facilitate relaxation of the muscles so that we can more efficiently access the joints and connective tissue during our Yin portion of the class. The Yin segment is made up of floor based postures that are held for several minutes at a time to encourage deeper opening of the body and it's energy pathways (meridians).
This is the floor work version of the Pilates Method exercises with the addition of some contemporary techniques. It is a low impact form of exercise that focuses on small, precise, movements originating from the core. These movements work every muscle in the body in an efficient manner, and are paired with focused breathing patterns. Pilates aims to strengthen muscles while improving postural alignment, flexibility, and body/mind awareness.
Pilates Reformer Explorations
This class flows at a moderate pace and offers progressions on the basic exercises you already know. It also introduces new and more challenging ways to explore movement, mind/body connection, coordination and choreography on the PIlates Reformer. Students at this intermediate level should have a few months of Reformer experience and be able to hold a plank and a bridge. This class might includes the use of a modern Pilates prop- the jumpboard! It's a large, padded board that sits in front of the foot bar and allows us to jump horizontally. The jumpboards provide an exhilarating, high energy, but, low impact, aerobic workout that students with even a minimal amount of Reformer experience can enjoy!
Release & Restore
An all-levels class that focuses on relaxing and releasing tension in the mind as well as the body. This practice will include gentle movements to warm the body and anchor us in the present moment, active stretches, and passive, restorative postures supported with bolsters, blankets, and blocks. These help students of every level ease into, and enjoy, the benefits of deep relaxation. We'll take our time and give you ample opportunity to exhale and let go.
This class is offered the last Thursday of each month.
Tap into the radiant energy of the sun in this feel-good flow! This mixed level vinyasa class has sun salutations at it’s core. We'll start you off slowly to get the juices flowing, then build up to some fiery, and fun variations for you to explore. As always, do what you can and don't worry about the rest! Emphasis is placed on the breath in connection to the movement which assists us in being fully present. Plenty of time will be left at the end of practice to unwind and relax, leaving you glowing from the inside out!
This class is great for those who are comfortable and familiar with Vinyasa (flow) Yoga and are willing to explore new territory in their practice. It is a challenging flow class with options for more advanced pose variations, complex transitions, inversions, and arm balances. All of these are meant to help you own your strength, find your confidence, and help you feel empowered as you experience "a-ha" moments on your mat. Come with a sense of curiosity and play and take child's pose or modify when needed.
Pilates Reformer Foundations
This slower paced class focuses on learning and practicing fundamental Pilates techniques and basic reformer exercises. The Pilates reformer will help you find greater, flexibility, strength, body awareness, and coordination no matter your experience or fitness level. No previous Pilates experience is necessary as modifications will be offered. However, we do recommend starting out with our private introductory package to help get you more acquainted with the equipment and address any personal concerns.
Mixed Level Pilates Reformer
In this equipment Pilates class, we'll adjust our teaching to suit the levels of the students who sign up. Modifications and advancing variations will be offered for most exercises. It is recommended that you have some experience with the equipment before joining a group class. This class might includes the use of a modern Pilates prop- the jumpboard! It's a large, padded board that sits in front of the foot bar and allows us to jump horizontally. The jumpboards provide an exhilarating, high energy, but, low impact, aerobic workout that students with even a minimal amount of Reformer experience can enjoy!
