Move with grace and ease. 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 yogis 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.
Hot Flow is a challenging 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.
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.
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.
Yin Yoga is a very slow-paced class. The style requires holding poses for a few minutes while allowing the body to relax to effectively apply gentle pressure to the body’s connective tissues. This also holds space for the practitioner to find stillness in the mind, gently entering a meditative state. It is a good way to increase the body’s range of motion and the same time ground one’s energy.
Core Flow is a Vinyasa-based class that puts emphasis on creating awareness of the bandpass (Energy locks) and the use of the body’s core muscles. Flowing in breath-synchronized movements allow for efficient use of energy as one is challenged to find stability and strength in the practice.
