ashtanga modified series
Inspired by Ashtanga Yoga, a lineage developed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in the mid-20th century, this class takes the traditional and explores modern variations as well. Ashtanga (Sanskrit for 8-limbs) includes a series of postures that start with Surya Namaskar A & B to warm up, followed by a blend of standing and balancing poses before moving to the ground for floor work, as taken from the Primary and Intermediate Series. Pranayama (breath practices) and work with the bandhas (energy locks) are highlighted and integrated throughout the practice. This practice develops strength, endurance and discipline. In this class, students will experience the classical sequencing as passed down over the years as well as variations to the traditional sequence. It will also be modified and adapted to suit the needs for all levels of practitioners.
These classes are our most affordable at $10. Taught at a pace slower than our all levels sessions, these classes can be a great way to develop your practice as well as refine the fundamentals.

We slow the Mighty pace down to dive even deeper into our practice in this alignment flow class.

Rediscover your balance between the Yang and Yin. The first half of class will be energizing and we will warm the body with a heated power flow (like Mighty Flow).

Yin yoga applies gentle stress to the connective tissue, including ligaments and fascia, to promote flexibility, joint mobility, cellular regeneration, and helps to calm the nervous system to connect your mind and body.
