YOGA STYLES

AERIAL

Aerial yoga uses a hammock as a prop for yoga asanas and postures, which can be used for all styles of yoga. The hammock is there to help you, assist you, hold on to you, deepen stretches and to allow all to invert without compressing the spine.

HATHA

Hatha yoga practices move more slowly to cultivate steadiness and bodily awareness where the whole body is integrated thus bringing a lightness to the practice. This is a perfect class for those seeking a slower pace with heightened awareness of how to align the body with breath and movements.

FLOW

Flow yoga sequences postures from one to another with the flow of the breath. A rhythmic movement that enlivens the body, activates a depth in the breath, and generates a rise in body temperature. It is great for individuals wanting to flow between poses or elevate the heart rate.


HOT FLOW

Hot Flow yoga practices combine yoga flow with warmer room temperatures. Temperatures are set around 90 degrees and 40% humidity resulting in an environment that stimulates sweating, supports deeper postures and releases toxins. Heightened attention to the breath assists this practice when body temperatures are elevated. Practitioners leave this practice with a vibrant glow cultivated from the inside out!
 
RESTORATIVE

Restorative yoga focuses on the gentle, calming, and therapeutic aspects of poses where the opening of the poses happens as the body naturally surrenders to gravity. With the assistance of supportive props, each posture is held in deep relaxation. This rejuvenating practice benefits anyone with injuries, high levels of stress, or anyone needing a quiet moment to rest the body and mind.

FLOW & RESTORE

Flow & Restore yoga is a gracefully sequenced class blending the fluid movements and strength building with the calming effects of restorative yoga. The first portion is in awakening the breath and body. The second portion goes deeper into a meditative state with gentle breath work and body positioning.

MELT

The MELT Method® (MELT®) is a treatment using a soft Melt roller and ball to reduce the effects of accumulated tension and stress caused by daily living.

Teaching is at the heart of what I love. As a full-time snowboard instructor in the winter, yoga compliments all our other athletic activities. Yoga is freedom and release, a connection of the mind, body, and soul and I am here to help others find this release so that they can comfortably and competently move their bodies through life.
