Align

A great alternative to Vinyasa, the focal point of Align is shape, safety and shri (radiance or emanation). The cueing in Align consists of precise bio-mechanical alignment and actions necessary to safely create, sustain and deepen into a pose. Beyond bio-mechanical knowledge, Align reveals more of You to Yourself. By fixing your attention on your body and taking proper action, you can access a meditative state and expand your capacity for relating to yourself on and off your mat.

Vinyasa

Vinyasa is a system of yoga in which the breath is coordinated with the movement and the movements or postures are linked together in a continuous flow. The system is known for it’s strong yet fluid approach to yoga, in which strength, agility and flexibility are developed with continued practice. The Vinyasa II-III classes invite intermediate/advanced practitioners to engage with their practice with deeper level of conscious embodiment. Advanced poses may be on the offered, but not necessarily.

Mindfulness

Mindful yoga is a meditation of motion and stillness that runs counter to our busy, scattered, fast paced, and anxious modern culture. It is a truly integrated mind body practice that trains patience, steadiness focus and acceptance. In mindfulness yoga we consciously connect to the physical experience of body and breath as a focus to train our awareness to be stable, calm, genuine, and present. We practice making peace with our body, our emotions, and our thoughts. We learn to make peace with, and tame our inner restlessness and anxiety so that we can experience genuine natural presence in the moment. We practice resting in the long burning intensity of poses, learning to experience everything that happens peacefully and openly without judgement or interpretation. With patience, willingness and careful practice this style of yoga can integrate us with our experience of the present moment so that we can truly be a clear, beneficial presence in the world.

SmartFLOW

It couples classical yoga for its rigor and discipline, and the modernity of anatomy, kinesiology and fluid transitions for structurally sound yet expansive practice. You can expect clear specific instruction, cues that invite steady elegant breathing and longer holds for strength and clarity.  The SmartFLOW system offers you a strong practice with juicy flowing sequences, heart-building krama with sensation-driven focus for grace and depth.
