Class Types

This is the most time-tested, powerful method of self-improvement known to man. It utilizes mental focus and deep breathing while performing a series of specific postures. This practice focuses deeply on alignment, form, and core. This is the class to take to improve your practice, whether you’ve discovered Ashtanga, Vinyasa, or Hatha is the yoga best suited to you.

With emphasis on awareness, control, and effective use of breathing, Gentle Flow is a slower-paced practice, with focus on the foundation and alignment of poses and vinyasa sequences. This class is for everyone, most especially yohis just starting out or have physical limitations they need to work with.

This class is a dynamic system of linking breath (prana) to postures (asanas). Sequencing is often built around sun salutations. It leaves you feeling longer, leaner, and feeling refreshed.

A contemporary approach to devoting the Self to a higher power. There is no dogma involved. Just an accessible vinyasa flow class allowing you to discover your own inner voice through breath and music.

Heated Flow

Hot Flow is a challenging 75 minute vinyasa flow class practiced in a heated room. The heat warms the body’s muscles and joints, which allows for maximum stretching and strengthening with a reduced rate of injury. A great way to detoxify the body through sweating.

power Yoga

Power Yoga consists of sequences that challenge both physical and mental capabilities. It consists of a complete balance of backbends, forward folds, core strength, hip openers, and inversions. The class is favored by practitioners who crave a good, hard workout accompanied by sustaining mental exercises.

Jivamukti is an integrated style of yoga. The practice is 90% asana – based (physical), and 10% meditative/reflective. it includes chanting, a spiritual talk/dharma talk, and a short meditation. The open – level class is physically, mentally & spiritually challenging.
Yin Yoga a gentle practice that is focused on opening the body and calming the mind through long-held restful asanas and deep breathwork.
Spiritual Warrior is a signature Jivamukti Yoga class which is designed for busy people who only have an hour to practice. The class is fast paced and invigorating and is certainly a “get-in-shape” class. The structure is a fixed set sequence instructed in a vinyasa style. It is a fully balanced class which includes asana warm-up, chanting (often times opening and closing with 3 “Om’s”), setting of intention, surya namaskar, standing poses, backbends, forward bends, twists, inversions, meditation and relaxation. The teacher focuses on keeping the pace moving and does not stop to give spiritual discourses. Since the asana sequence is always the same, a student will pick it up quite quickly after only a couple of classes.

Yoga Etiquette

Etiquette is not a loud and explicit rule; it is soft and subtle but necessary in order to ensure the comfort and pleasant experience of your fellow yogis and yoginis.

1
Be Punctual to Every Class; Rather, Make it Habit to Arrive Early

If you know you will be running late we recommend you call the studio to have your mat laid out prior to the start of class. Please enter the practice room quietly. If you are more than 10 minutes late we suggest you take the next class. Please note once class starts we will no longer disrupt the class to make space.

2
Observe Silence

It’s in our nature as yogis to to be sociable although we ask you keep your conversations completely out of the practice room and to a minimum in the common areas.

3
Please Remove Your Shoes Before Entering the Practice Room

This request is a form of respecting the ancient tradition of the East and to provide a clean environment in which you practice. Kindly store your shoes in the shoe racks just outside the practice room.

4
Turn Off All Cellphones or Any Other Electronic Devices

We have become so attached to our cellphones we worry we may not be able to function without them even for an hour’s time. Trust us, you will be fine. Please turn them off and do not keep them in view. They become such a distraction to your focus and defeat the reason why you are here in the first place.

5
No Bags on the Practice Room Floor

Please utilize the lockers throughout the studio to stow your personal belongings. Bags are not to be left on the floor in the practice room even against the wall. They should be placed in cubicles or closet if kept
in the practice room.

6
Mind Your Personal Hygiene

Remember a yoga class is often a very intimate setting therefore it’s necessary your body, clothes, and mat are odor free. Refrain from using perfume or cologne. It is traditional to bathe before and after class.

7
Show Respect to Not Only the Teacher but to Your Fellow Yogi / Yoginis

Depending on the time of day classes may get fairly full. Please be courteous and make space for your classmates. This is EVERYONE’s practice room. Do not go off and do postures outside of what the teacher is instructing. It’s disrespectful and distracting to students.

8
Do Not Exit the Practice Room During Class Unless it is Absolutely Necessary

Exiting the practice room because you are tired or disinterested is highly discouraged. Hang out in a comfortable seated position or child’s pose in the meantime. Also, Savasana is part of the yoga class too. Please stay until the end of final relaxation.
