Deep Stretch Restorative Yoga
Deep Stretch is an active stretching class that targets primary muscle groups surrounding the hips, hamstrings and upper back. Living in a forward facing, seated world, these areas tend to be tight for everyone. Tight muscles can cause imbalance and pull the body out of alignment.
Yin/Yang Yoga is a class in which to experience the benefits of a balanced practice of yin and yang styles of yoga. The yin style of long-held passive poses opens the body to more flexibility and chi flow through the subtle channels while also engendering a more contemplative, non-reactive quality of mind.
A more active, dynamic, yang style of vinyasa will follow, strengthening and invigorating the body and mind. Each class will conclude with meditation.
TriYoga is a complete hatha yoga method in which the breath and focus are united with flowing and sustained postures in systematized sequences. This class benefits everyone, beginners to advanced, as students refine core alignments, build strength and flexibility in all areas, and develop breath awareness. Bolsters, pillows and props can be used to ensure comfort and alignment.

Thai Yoga Therapy
This sacred art is healing, invigorating and rejuvenating. It awakens the loving spirit and all senses opening the chakras and all meridians of the body. The result is the feeling of well-being and bliss. Nuad Boram is based on the northern style of traditional Thai Massage. Its foundation dates back 2,500 years ago during the time of Buddha. The basis is one of energy, at its most fundamental level. We reference this "energy" or "life force" as Prana. As in yoga, we continue in parallel with this "energy" and its indefinite power for healing. Being of good health, at least by majority definition is not being sick and able to function both through thought and physical independence. In Eastern philosophy, this concept is more defined as a balance of our chakras, or specific channels of energy flow that are in constant balance, where all of our internal systems, as well as our mind and spirit, are one in harmony. Sickness, diseases, and pains are considered to be an imbalance in this energy flow. Nuad Boram allows a reopening of this flow through stimulation allowing the mind and body to become balanced once again. Meredith Dawn Kramer
Yoga Nidra often referred to as Yogic Sleep is the conscious awareness of the deep sleep state. It is an ancient Tantric technique made popular in the West by Swami Satyananda. This simple, yet powerful tool moves you to a state of deep relaxation and has the potential to take you beyond the three normal states of consciousness (waking, dreaming, and dreamless sleep states), to the 4th state of consciousness (Turiya).
There a multitude of physical benefits from practicing Yoga Nidra, including reduced stress, fatigue, anxiety, and worry; a better night’s sleep; improved digestion; and increased immune function. Spiritually, Yoga Nidra gives you access to that space between thoughts, beyond mind. In this space, we reset the body, expand the mind, and see things from a different vantage point. This allows for the burning or neutralization of Samskaras (deep impressions), the true goal of Yoga Nidra. This is the promise and power of Yoga Nidra.
Yoga Nidra is multilayered in its benefits as we move through the different layers of our being. Through the different Koshas or subtle bodies that overlay our essence, we gain deeper levels of mastery over our lives. This technique has been known to help patients with PTSD, terminal illnesses, mental disorders and other imbalances, physically, emotionally, and mentally. This practice is for everyone, whether you consider yourself healthy or not. Everyone can benefit in some way from the practice of Yoga Nidra.
Private Yoga & Meditation Packages
Originally, the science of yoga and meditation was passed from one teacher directly to one student. Today, this approach to teaching Yoga guides each person in developing a practice that is relevant to his or her own body and life experience. A private session will allow you to deepen your practice and help you experience the benefits of yoga and meditation in a more personal way. Private classes are for new and experienced students and for those with an injury or condition.

As a new student, you may be intimidated by the public classroom environment or you may have a busy schedule that makes it impossible to attend a group class.
