In this all levels class, students will return back to the basics of yoga. We will flow through various sequences, introducing students to fundamental yoga postures, while teaching them how to use the breath to transition between poses. You do not need to be able to touch your toes in this class, all you need is an open heart and an open mind.

Hatha – Shawn

Hatha Yoga is an introduction to the foundation poses of yoga, and this is a weekly series focused on the union of the physical body, mindful focus and breath. Each day has a theme featuring a set of related physical postures and breathing techniques, practised more slowly and with more static posture holds than a typical flow class. You will work on the physical alignment best suited for your own body and learn the verbal cuing for each pose; as well, each week we will introduce you to one of the 8 limbs of yoga. The class is recommended for all levels of ability.

Body Sculpt – Caitlin

A high intensity class mixing yoga with weights and cardio. Each 45 minute class focuses on a specific muscle group in the body. Begin with a warm up of sun salutations, move through yoga exercises and end in a quick cool down. You will leave feeling strong, accomplished and sweaty!

A fun, sweaty class that will teach you how to strengthen the deep layers of your core. Combined with breathing and asana, to help increase the mind, body and spirit connection. Let’s learn to communicate with our bodies from the inside out!

Foundation Flow Level 1 & 2 – Michellene & Caitlin

A set series of primary postures created to develop strength, balance and flexibility; it is a strong flow style class that moves at a slow pace holding most postures for 3-5 rounds of breath. It’s a class that typically appeals to those who are continually looking to push their personal boundaries by continually seeking a new edge and a deeper sense of self-awareness to their practice. During this 60 minute class you will find yourself building heat from yogic breath and a good old fashion sweat from the strength of the series. This is not necessarily the best choice for your first yoga class ever, but rather, it’s better suited to those with a general understanding of the primary postures.

Beginner Flow – Mandy

This class is a judgement free zone! You don’t need to be perky, flexible or wearing head to toe Lululemon attire. We provide all the props, all you have to do is show up.  In our Beginner’s Flow class, students will move through breath focused sequences that utilize sun salutations to link individual poses into a flowing whole. 

Salt & Honey – Ali

A mixture of Yin/Yang. We will go from one end of the spectrum to the other. We will go through the entire standing series of Bikram and then hit the floor. 50/50. It’s the balance of opposites. You will work hard and rest hard. Restorative work after the intense work leads to an abundance of benefits. It lowers cortisol and allows the productive work to settle in. Zen will be sure to follow!

Kundalini – Tess

Kundalini Yoga is a powerful style of yoga that gives fast results. An uplifting blend of spiritual and physical practices. Kundalini Yoga incorporates movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation, and the chanting of mantras. The goal is to build physical vitality and increase consciousness.

Gentle Yin – Mandy & Michellene 

Picture this; candles burning, music soft and soothing.  The lights are down low and the props are set out.  The class begins with Pranayama or Breath work, giving students an opportunity to connect with themselves.  Then we move through various yin postures, postures that are held for 1-3 minutes.  The challenge of this class is that you become passive, while stretching the boundaries of your capacity to be at ease within yourself-physically, emotionally and mentally. 

Deep Six Yin – Michellene

Issues in your tissues? This 60 minute class begins with an opening intention setting followed by 6 postures held for 6-10 minutes finishing up with a Savasana.

Flow & Restore – Michellene

Sweet, sassy & satisfying! For those nights when you need more than a Restorative or Yin Yoga class. When you can feel the restless energy that needs burning off before bed. Flow & Restore is just the right place to land. A 60 minute practice that is not too strenuous. It offers a fluid, organic and creative flow that finishes off with soft lingering stretches. 

Yin – Jason & Ali

A lively, invigorating yin practice. The long, slow postures will make you work but will take you deep into your body and your self.

Beyond Yin – Jason

Gentle yin yoga combined with elements of restorative yoga, breathing and meditation. Long-held postures will allow space for introspection and release. Start your weekend off with self-care and you will leave feeling more present, relaxed and content. We’ll learn some techniques to take your yoga off the mat and, to go beyond yin, we might even have some special guests offer their healing practices.

Yin Yogassage – Michellene

A favourite since day one! In Yin Yogassage each yogi receives some pretty fabulous healing touch offered by our massage therapist! The postures are generally ground work postures, many either seated or reclining and are typically held for 3-6 minutes; in Yin we hold for 1-3 minutes. The lights are soft and the music plays low as the teacher guides you through a thoughtfully crafted Yin sequence with most of the dedication spent on your hips, hamstrings, groin and low back. If your intention with yoga is to achieve greater flexibility and range of motion so that you can feel better in your body, well then, this is just the class for you. You’re pretty sure to leave this 90 minute class so totally blissed out you just might forget where you parked your car; but make no mistake there’s effort required on your part but it will be totally worth it.

Yoga Nidra & Reiki – Jason & Haley

Nidra is yogic sleep and the aim of this practice is to go into the state of deep sleep while remaining awake. It’s a technique to relax and help get a good night’s sleep, but it’s also a very efficient way to rest and improve the nervous system. While you enjoy this deep, peaceful respite Haley will move around the room offering Reiki healing on you assisting in the release of emotional blockages.
