Yin Yoga: Yin is a meditative, slow-paced class where poses are passive & held with props for 3-5 mins or more with the aim to target the body’s deep connective tissue, fascia, joints, ligaments & bones. Along with its physical benefits, It also improves energetic & mental well-being. Not appropriate for pregnant women and those who are hypermobile.

Yoga Fusion: This is a unique blend of yoga & movement practices designed to prioritize strength through one's available range of motion. This class will challenge you to go deeper into understanding how your body moves by deconstructing postures & experiencing movement in various planes, as well as with changing up our relationship to gravity. We will use: bolsters, blankets, blocks, straps, the Rope Wall, chairs, sandbags, resistance bands, and Yoga Tune Up® balls. Variations will be provided no matter what stage of any given pose you’re able to work into. Sometimes we’ll flow, sometimes we'll workshop, and sometimes we’ll hold poses as we strengthen, balance, and focus body & mind. Here’s where you’ll learn the appropriate way for your body to approach your practice - with humour, humility, & curiosity - not with force or ego. **It's always a good idea to have a pair of socks on hand and if you have your own Yoga Tune Up® balls, bring ‘em!** All levels welcome.

Yoga Flow: These classes are strong, fluid offerings which challenge students to build strength & stability through functional movement patterns. The class isn’t fast-paced, but it is vigorous & students can expect to be challenged to build strength through creative approaches to familiar postures. There’s less focus on passive stretching & more on dynamic stretching & building muscle integrity. All levels welcome.

Yoga for Strength: A yoga class that uses poses to help build strength & muscle using your own body weight. All levels welcome.

Movement RE-Set: these classes are based largely on the Nutritious Movement™️ program where you get to spend an hour breaking it down, exploring and re-aligning your unique alignment with a certified Restorative Exercise Specialist. Each class will focus on a theme or area of the body designed to target getting more movement in more ways through corrective exercises and trying some new alignment points. Classes will help you look at your own biomechanics in a new, fun, and interesting way and provide some tools to vary those movement patterns. Restorative Movement isn’t something you do in addition to other activities, it’s something to incorporate into all your other real life activities to keep you doing them for longer with ease. This class will include significant use of props so students are requested to bring their towel to class or rent one from the studio.
