5 Element Kripalu Yoga
All Levels Yoga
All levels yoga classes are appropriate for both the beginner and the experienced yoga practitioner. Variations to asana (poses/postures) will be offered to make the pose more or less challenging. A combination of Kripalu Yoga and a flow-based hatha yoga from other traditions are part of these classes. There is an emphasis on mindful movements, witness consciousness and the invitation to work up a sweat.

Power Flow Yoga
This is a moderate level yoga class. Attendees should have some experience with yoga postures and have the physical stamina to flow from one pose to the next. Led with connection to the breath, this class will be a work-out for the body, breath, and spirt. The room is warm (85-88 degrees), but not considered “hot” yoga.

Restorative yoga is a healing practice of slowing down and moving into yoga postures with the support of props such as blankets, blocks, and bolsters. Restorative yoga activates the parasympathetic nervous system to promote deep rest and healing. The class will feel nurturing, relaxing, and regenerating. This type of yoga promotes a centering of your breath and body – aligning the physical, breath and mental bodies by practicing stillness or gentle movement for extended periods of time. The props assist in helping you to hold poses longer. We recommend this class for anyone in need of rest, healing, relaxation, and de-stressing; no experience necessary! This event is a 2 hour class – $25 per person. Register by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.

This class blends flowing postures, pranyama (breath work), and the holding of poses to enliven the body and clear the mind. This class flows from one posture to the next, almost like a dance. A fun class to change things up!
