Class Descriptions

Ever-Present Flow | Friday Morning Flow  Embody the present moment through an energetic posture flow linking breath with movement to creating flexibility and strength while cultivating a sense of calm, contentment, and present moment awareness.

Ever-Present Stretch | Sunday Morning Stretch  Let’s find ourselves ever-present as we stretch, lengthen, and open during this practice combining breath awareness with an in-depth look at the poses. We’ll explore the BRFWA technique (Breathe, Relax, Feel, Watch, & Allow) as a strategy to become present in our life both on and off the yoga mat. As we witness the flow of energy, sensations, and thoughts we’ll create peace, clarity, and an ease to both body and mind. With practice, and trust in our inner guide, becoming present will become second nature, and a great place to be.

Chakra Harmonizing Yoga  In this class we’ll explore energy movement through the 7 main upper chakras. Conceptually these colorful spinning wheels of energy help us experience, connect to, and understand both our emotional and physical well being. Located at points running along the spinal column, each chakra has unique corresponding characteristics and can have an energy flow that is either too dull/stagnant & or too bright/excessive. Our practice will help ease these imbalances as we harmonize the chakras to encourage a graceful flow of energy. Class will include discussion, pranayama, a full body warm up/cool down, and poses directing the energy flow to the corresponding chakra(s) of focus. If you like, bring a journal along.

Prenatal Yoga  You will be guided through a series of postures linking breath with movement bringing awareness to both mother and child and the beautiful changes happening in your body. Preparing to give birth actively and instinctively, we will build trust in the body’s wisdom while bringing forth a sense of calmness, confidence and focus.

Prenatal yoga helps alleviate some of the common discomforts of pregnancy: fatigue, lower back pain, leg cramps, upper back and shoulder tightness, sciatica, nausea, and indigestion. The poses strengthen and open the body for birth, keeping the muscles strong and toned, yet flexible. Modifications are available to suit each pregnancy stage adjusting to how your body feels week to week.

Take this opportunity to recharge, reenergize while connecting with your baby and your intuition, which will guide you on the amazing path into motherhood.
