Class Descriptions

All of our classes are beginner friendly and suitable for middle school age or older, apart from our kids’ class that is specifically focused for elementary schoolers.  Consult your medical provider before beginning a new movement practice.  

Aerial Deep Stretch and Meditate
- using an aerial yoga hammock as a prop, Paige guides students through a series of breathing techniques, mindfulness meditation, and deep stretches.  No experience necessary- beginners welcome! (*see notes below for more info) 

Balancing Breath and Body - Rachel’s class integrates foundational yoga poses, breathing techniques, and intervals of relaxation between movement. The structure and content of the class will be adapted from the Sivananda system of yoga.  The class will offer a gently paced experience, including opportunities to become comfortable with a set of key yoga poses and with breathing mindfully, as we practice attaining a balance between physical activity and peaceful reflection. 

Blended Aerial Practice - This class combines mat yoga with the Aerial Hammock positioned low to the ground allowing for a deeper restorative stretch with the support of the hammock as a prop.  Michelle incorporates light touch and essential oils to enhance wellness and reduce stress. (Note that students have the option to opt out of touch in class)

intenSati - Susan’s class that will strengthen your body, clear your mind, and open your heart so you can live a life you love in a body you love. Learn to train your inner critic to become your inner coach so you can experience positive, lasting, and fulfilling results.  intenSati is a cardio class that combines positive affirmations with interval training, martial arts, dance, and yoga.  No experience necessary - all are welcome!   

Mind Body Aerial Yoga  - aerial yoga combines traditional yoga poses with step-by-step instructions on how to safely carry out stretches and inversions using the hammock as a prop. Inversions involve turning upside down or bringing the head below the heart. This can stimulate your nervous system and bring more oxygen and blood flow to the brain.  Inversions can also boost metabolic rate, strengthen and generate mobility to the joints, create high energy levels, work the core, revive the lymphatic system, and help with circulation. (*see notes below for more info) 

Mind Body Breath - Paige will guide you to connect your breath with movement and utilize mindfulness meditation during this yoga practice.  Breathing techniques have an immediate effect on our mind and bodies by altering the pH of blood, changing our blood pressure, and dampening the production of harmful stress hormones. Join us as we move our bodies and relax our minds. 

Mind Body Chair - Interested in trying yoga but have difficulty getting up and down from the floor? Want to improve your balance but you’re not sure how to begin? Do you have an existing yoga practice, but you’re ready to discover new ways to explore basic poses? No matter if you have an established yoga practice or you’re just getting started, a simple chair can support and enhance your practice in ways that may surprise you! Laura’s class includes deep breathing, gentle movement, and stretching, as well as standing balance postures and strengthening poses.  Class can be done entirely seated (options will be provided). Come grab a chair and learn ways to create a yoga practice that fits YOUR needs! 

Mind Body Flow (AM class) - Amanda’s class connects accessible yoga postures with breath and fluid movement.  Exploring individual postures builds confidence and familiarity while more experienced students can refine fundamentals of alignment and explore deeper sensations. 

Mind Body Flow (PM class) - Alex’s class moves at a slowed-down pace which allows students to focus on holding postures longer and refining their form. Whether you are new to yoga or have been practicing for years, this class is taught to yogis of any level. Students will be offered options and modifications that allow each yogi to practice at their own pace. Mind Body Flow provides the opportunity to build strength, improve balance, and enhance flexibility all in one class. Students will leave the class feeling sweaty, refreshed, and with a smile on their face.

Mind Body Kids - In Amanda's Kids Yoga classes children will learn age-appropriate yoga poses, fun yoga games and breathing techniques that help them find focus and calm. Children will learn various poses that will help them with different life situations, like how to handle stress using the breath, how to release anger and other useful tools to bring yoga to their life. Fun atmosphere. 

Mind Body Vinyasa - Theresa's yoga class moves at a slow flow pace. Vinyasa yoga is the stringing together of poses using the breath to move from one pose to the next. The focus on the breath is to keep you in the present moment, quieting the busy mind, creating serenity. Theresa leads the class at a slow flow pace to connect with the body and to completely understand the yoga poses. Her focus is for everyone to feel comfortable and confident throughout the class so that you receive all the physical, mental and emotional benefits of yoga.  Beginners welcome! 

Work Week Wind Down - No matter whether your job involves being on your feet all day, sitting at a desk for hours on end, chasing your kiddos around or shuttling them back and forth to school and basketball practice, Yoga can help you release the tensions that build during the work week grind. Join Audra for 75 minutes of yoga designed to support all that life asks of our body. A Yin Yoga based class (with a splash of Yang) can help release the negative impact of our commitments from the work week and open us up to the fun the weekend has to offer.  

*Note there is a 250 lb. weight limit for the aerial hammocks.  If you have heart disease, high blood pressure, vertigo, eye diseases (such as glaucoma), or are pregnant please consult your doctors before trying inversions.
