Intro to Yoga
This class will introduce the very basics of the yoga practice, where movements are broken down individually. Students will learn the basic alignment of postures and the difficulty is geared to individuals that are new to yoga practice. Students will be instructed to move mindfully to increase the awareness of the body in each posture.
Intro to Flow
This yoga class will introduce the fundamentals of a vinyasa style yoga practice, where sequences of movements are linked with the flow of breath. Students will learn the basic alignment of postures and the difficulty is geared to those relatively new to yoga practice. Students will be instructed to move mindfully to increase the awareness of the body in each posture
Intermediate Yoga Flow
This class takes the same postures introduced at the Beginner level but increases the difficultly. Students will be instructed to move through sequences at a faster pace, with less alignment ques and more challenging variations of the asana postures will be offered. For example, arm balances, inversions and backbends will be introduced.
Advanced Yoga Flow
This class is for students looking to take their practice to the next level or for more advanced yogis. The lesson will be more athletic and move through asana at a fast pace, with very little instruction. While moving in and out of arm balances and inversions, the student can expect this session to increase stamina and strength.
Slow Flow Yoga
This one hour class serves as a practice to nourish the body and mind. Focus is on cleansing and nourishing the body from the inside out with a gentle flow practice. Expect a good stretch, too!
Full relaxation is the aim of this yoga class. It's a great practice for people recovering from an injury or looking to de-stress. You will be guided into longer held poses that will allow the mind to tune out and the body restore through stretching and deeper breathing.
Rise and shine with us first thing in the morning. You can expect that this vinyasa class will include a energizing flow that prepares you and sets the pace for the day ahead. This class may include light back bends and twists which will leave you feeling refreshed and invigorated.
Yin Yang Yoga
This practice contains two elements to the class; the beginning half of the class is the Yang portion, which is a fast paced, energetic flow 1. The Yin part of the class slows the pace down and moves the body into longer held postures. Yin aims to lengthen connective tissue as you stretch and is a complement to strength based Yang classes.
This class is designed to safely build strength and flexibility to help carry a growing belly and baby, in a calm and peaceful environment. Movements will focus on alleviating common aches and pains that many women face; along with simple sequences that help to improve circulation, aid in digestion and to decrease overall discomforts. Throughout the class, emphasis will also be placed on effective breathing and relaxation techniques that can assist you both throughout pregnancy and labour. Most importantly, you will be guided to turn your attention inwards, finding that deep, magical connection to yourself and your loved one.
This quiet, still form of yoga stretches the ligaments and connective tissues of the body that may be overlooked during a flow style class. In addition to giving the body a deep stretch, Yin Yoga prepares the mind for meditation. Extended time in each pose allows the student to witness their thoughts more closely. Effort in Yin Yoga is balanced between calming the tension in the body and quieting a busy overactive mind.
Energize and Stretch
(Beginner/All Levels) This class will contain movements and poses that help to energize and open the body. This is a well balanced class that will cultivate and clear energy for your day. You can expect to do chest opening postures, light backbends and invigorating twists as well as some lighter stretching to release body tension.
Rest and Restore
Experience deep rest with classic restorative yoga poses, guided meditation & pranayama. This class requires minimal movement and lots of stillness. We'll support you with props, gentle instructions & lots of hands on adjustments in this intimate class. Please dress warmly, wear socks and bring a blanket.

Fit Flow Yoga
Fit flow will make you sweat and challenge the way you look at modern vinyasa yoga. This class will move through vinyasa flows with focus on the muscle groups that help strengthen your practice in a more obvious way. Feel the entire core engage, pulse through squats and lunges, and elevate the heart rate through higher intensity sequences. Don’t let the word FIT scare you, trust that your Fit flow is here to help strengthen your body and your mind and their connection in an unconventional way. Flow and sweat to fun playlists and leave feeling like you’ve left everything on the mat.
Core & Flow Yoga
This class will activate deep and superficial muscles of the abdomen through a focus on core exercises. It will also have elements of a traditional flow practice but will articulate more strength, stability and pelvic support in all flow postures.
Slow Core Yoga
This class will ask you to slow down and invite you to connect to the core of your body and the core of your yoga practice. Learn how the muscle groups of core work with the other muscle groups of your body, moving slowly so we don’t skip into compensation mode. The core of the practice, breath and yogic philosophy, will be woven through class. This class is in the Wellness Room and has limited spaces. Please sign up in advance.
Fun Flow Yoga
This class will sequence together your basic yoga poses in a fluid and invigorating way! Adventurous yogis are invited to try the more challenging variations to postures as they are offered.
