Beginner
In this educational class you will enjoy Vinyasa yoga offered at a slower-pace so that we can focus on the basics: teaching beginner level poses, healthy movement and proper alignment. This class is geared towards beginners, but no matter your level, it will be beneficial & fun!

All Levels
Flowing sequences mixed with poses of all levels will be offered as you begin to experience Vinyasa yoga in its true form. As the teacher guides you through a special sequence of breath- and body-linked movement, options and support will be offered for the more challenging postures so that each student can find their own appropriate space in each pose. In this class you will flow, work, learn, discover and have fun – all in a safe and supportive environment. This class is suitable for students of all levels and while the offering will be different every time, a full mind, body and spirit experience is always in store!

Intermediate
Much like our All Levels class, but in this one you’ll get a little bit more of everything! More challenging postures (standing postures, backbends, inversions, arm balances), faster-paced flows, longer times spent in postures, plus extended chanting and meditation may be offered. As always, options and support will be offered for the more challenging spaces. Some yoga experience is required, but even more important is a loving heart, an open mind and compassion towards yourself!

Relaxing Flow
Stressed out, need to stretch, want to relax? Then this is definitely the class for you. Students will be guided through softer, fluid-like flow, as well as both standing and restorative-type postures, as we allow the mind to quiet, the body to heal and the spirit to be discovered. Expect a tranquil atmosphere, softer music and a more gentle sequence that is open to all levels; beginners welcome!

Yin Yoga
Yin Yoga is a quiet, contemplative style of yoga that aims to calm the nervous system and detox the body using the body’s own natural energies. Unlike flow-based vinyasa, poses in a yin class are held for up to five and six minutes to maximize their benefit to mind, body and soul.

Restorative Yoga
Whether you have a few minutes or an hour, taking time out each day to relax and renew is essential to living well.  This class is devoted to the beautiful restorative practices which are a sequence of supported yoga postures and breathing techniques to heal the effects of chronic stress, and to assist you in preventing stress and live more fully in the present moment.  This class is open to all levels and is a relaxing practice that uses props to support the body to fully release into seated and reclining postures.

SRY Flow
This hour and a half class is taught in the traditional Saraswati River Yoga tradition; combining the subtler practices of yoga (mantra, pranayama, meditation) with the physical practice of asana. We will work to heal trauma and tension from the body while connecting this form to the divine.

Introduction to Yoga
This class is for the beginner that wants to break down asana even further. This class is highly interactive and questions are welcome throughout the practice. This is the perfect class to help you become comfortable and acclimated to basic asana before joining other All-Level classes.
