Sunday 6/16

12:00 – 1:00pm

Slow Flow FREE Community Class

Steven T.

Slow Flow invites curiosity and contemplation through mindful movement and breath awareness. This class is often slower and occasionally gentler than other vinyasa classes as it leans more towards steadiness and flexibility over strength and intensity. Since this class moves at a slower pace, it grants more time to focus on the fundamentals or nuances of postures, while also creating opportunities to find physical and mental flow in the movement and breath practice.

1:15 – 2:00pm

Meditation

Steven T.

Sunday Meditation offers an opportunity to explore a variety of mindfulness and meditation techniques. Each week the meditation will be tailored to meet the needs and experience of the individuals in the group present. The class is structured to allow space to discuss the experience, ask questions, and explore ideas that arise during the session. Techniques frequently explored during this class include mindfulness, concentration, loving kindness, thought watching, breathwork, visualization and much more. Return each week to build community, explore a new method, or discover the practice that’s right for you.

Monday 6/17

6:45 – 7:45am

Sunrise Yoga

Steven T.

Sunrise Yoga provides a vinyasa based practice that will reawaken your body and mind. Similar to our Modern Vinyasa class, this class is often tailored to the needs of the group and may include breath-to-movement sequencing, traditional postures, mobility exploration, and/or myofascial release that will unwind tension and prime you for whatever the day brings.

12:00 – 1:15pm

Ashtanga Inspired

Michelle H.

Ashtanga yoga is a powerful yoga practice that includes sun salutations, breath awareness, control of the eyes (drishti), engagement of the inner body (bandhas), chanting, and postures that challenge strength, flexibility, and focus. Many postures will be held for five breaths. Ashtanga-Inspired classes weave together the traditional Ashtanga practice with creative sequencing and dynamic movement. Backbends, inversions, and arm balances opportunities are typically included in this class.

4:30 – 5:45pm

Vinyasa Flow

Kendall W.

Dynamic movement and graceful flow in time with your breath are the hallmarks of this practice. Vinyasa flow classes offer opportunities to practice embodiment through movement and experience a flow state while opening and strengthening the body. While flowing through postures will certainly be a part of the class, there may be pauses for reflection and to break down posture alignment throughout the class. Our teachers are pleased to offer modifications and variations to make this practice accessible to both new and experienced practitioners.

6:00 – 7:15pm

Modern Vinyasa

Anika S.

Modern Vinyasa is a fusion of traditional postures, creative sequencing, and modern mobility techniques (such as muscle isolations and myofascial release) intended to bring balance to the body and explore strength, flexibility, and balance in playful and functional ways. This class may vary in pace and style, but often includes flowing through postures, breathing in time with each movement, and contemplation of a philosophical element of the practice.

6:15 – 7:15pm

Climber's Core and Stability

Ashley M.

Climber’s Core is an hour-long strength and stability class that emphasizes multi dimensional core, posterior chain, and climbing relevant stability. This class uses both resistance training and bodyweight exercises to improve performance and support injury prevention. The class provides proper form instruction, modifications to support each individual, and a varying curriculum to keep you interested and progressing.

7:30 – 8:45pm

Release and Restore

Allison S.

This class's primary aim is to support recovery through myofascial release and restorative yoga postures. Restorative Yoga is a practice of supporting the body into comfort and relaxation in order to downgrade into the parasympathetic nervous system. Restorative Yoga supports stress reduction and promotes the tissue repair that takes place during the rest and digest phase. Myofascial release (sometimes referred to  as rolling or self massage)  promotes mobility, hydrates the fascia, increases body awareness, and relieves tension. This class often includes a sound bath savasana to further support your relaxation and well being.

Yoga for Strength and Mobility’s primary purpose is to promote stability, functional range of motion, and physical wellbeing. It will include opportunities to flow through postures in rhythm with the breath and time devoted to exploring and breaking down strength and mobility exercises.

Functional Fitness is a strength class that challenges multiple body systems at the same time. The vestibular system, the nervous system, and your muscular system will be tested and fatigued by the end of class!  The exercise selection will incorporate mobility, strength, and body awareness all in one. If you're looking to access a stronger, usable range of motion for climbing or any other sport, this class integrates it all so you can perform your best and be ready for the dynamics of daily life.
