Class Descriptions

Children’s Yoga: These classes are designed for children ages 2-9. Class sizes and age ranges vary based on locations. Classes are created to introduce children to yoga in an exciting and entertaining way. Children will learn a variety of  yoga poses and their benefits, different breathing techniques to help calm the mind and body as well as meditation. Depending on the subject or focus of the class, some class will incorporate a project or art activity as well as music and partner work. The goal is for children to leave class learning something new while feeling calm and in control of their mind and body.

The Do Good Movement School Program: This is an organized program where Erin Stevenson of the Do Good Movement is coming into classrooms on a weekly/monthly basis to provide a yoga practice around creating a community within the school. The class are an introduction to key yoga postures, breath work and meditation. The DGM program goes beyond just the physical of a yoga practice and also works with students about the importance of taking yoga off the mat. We focus on the acts of kindness and karma implementing projects that the students help to create where they are giving back to their local community.

Vinyasa Flow: This adult class is taught sequencing breath to movement. Students are led through the class learning different yoga postures and moving through a series of poses that repeat yet build on each time through. Much like a choreographed dance. Students will find this style of vinyasa flow a bit more challenging than the morning flow incorporating core work and whole body strengthening within the class. Each class dedicates the final 15 minutes to a more restorative practice and of course our final savasana and meditation. Geared more towards an experienced yogi with the ability to adapt the practice to those who may be more new to the style.

Vinyasa Morning Flow:  This class is similar in style of the vinyasa flow class but is more gentle and slow moving for the body. The focus of the class to to gently awaken the body for the day while sequencing yoga postures to help connect breath to movement. Like the typical vinyasa flow style class the final 15 minutes are dedicated to a  more restorative practice incorporate the final savasana and meditation.

Hatha Yoga: This style of yoga is focused on practicing and mastering yoga postures while taking time within each. Unlike vinyasa flow, hatha yoga is slower in paced but is still focused around the breath to help deepen and align the body into position. Hatha also is more concentrated on breathing techniques and meditation.
