These classes are designed to gently open the joints, stretch and strengthen the body, and calm the mind, allowing stress and tension to melt away. Lots of modifications and options are given, which make this class a great choice whether you are new to yoga or have been doing yoga a long time. 

Flow Yoga

Synchronizing breath with movement, these flow classes start with simple joint loosening movements then sun salutes are used to further warm the body and get the energy moving.  These classes balance strength with flexibility, movement with stillness, and effort with ease. All classes include breath awareness, sun salutations, standing poses, and floor poses. Modifications are given for multiple levels, and students are taught to pay attention to safe alignment while flowing though the postures. If you are new to yoga, or have injuries or limitations contact us to see if this class is an appropriate choice.

Gentle Yoga

Restorative Yoga

Restorative yoga utilizes props to support the body fully, which promotes a deep sense of relaxation.  This practice refreshes the mind, body and spirit and compliments an active practice.  It is a wonderful antidote to all the stressors of 21st century life.  Give yourself the gift of rest, stillness and renewal.  This class is accessible to everyone and yoga props are provided.

Yoga for Athletes

Whether you are a runner, biker, swimmer, triathlete or just like to workout in the gym, you can complement your training and reward yourself for all that you do to compete and stay healthy and fit. Each practice will include a vigorous warm-up series followed by a  slower, deliberate easing into the musculature and joints so commonly abused and  overused by today’s athlete.  For more information on this class contact Kelli White   kelli.yfa@gmail.com

Ashtanga Yoga Mysore Practice

The Mysore style of Ashtanga yoga is an individualized way of learning and practicing the Ashtanga sequence of asanas.  Each student works at his/her own individual pace within the group.  One-to-one assistance, adjustment in the postures, and instruction are given within the group context. In this style, the class is not “led” by an individual teacher.  With guidance, practitioners learn the sequence of asanas one at a time in combination with breath, bandha, and drishti.  If you are not familiar with asthanga yoga, contact Ashley slayogastl@gmail.com prior to attending class.
