FORM 1 classes explore the foundational poses of yoga in order to lay the groundwork for a safe and effective yoga practice. This class is appropriate for beginners through advanced practitioners that want to work on the fundamentals of their practice.
FORM 2 classes focus on using good alignment principles to explore poses beyond the basics, including arm balances, inversions, and back bends. You can expect detailed alignment, longer holds, work with props, and a step-by-step approach to help you deepen your asana practice.
FLOW 1 classes are flowy, vinyasa style classes with an emphasis on maintaining good alignment in the foundational poses and in the transitions between poses. This class is perfect for those new to the FLOW style and for those who want to learn to move with integrity and stability. This class will move through the poses at a quicker pace than in the FORM classes, so a general knowledge of the basic yoga poses is helpful but not required.
FLOW 1/2 classes are flowy, vinyasa style classes that are intended for all levels of students. This class will explore variations and modifications of the poses so that every student feels successful regardless of experience. You can expect movement with the breath at a faster pace than the FORM classes and the FLOW 1 classes. Harder poses may be introduced in an accessible way.
FLOW 2 classes are flowy, vinyasa style classes that will move through the poses at a quick, intentional pace. Increasingly more challenging poses such as arm balances, inversions, and backbends may be explored. You can expect to move, breathe, sweat, and explore your personal limits.
YIN classes are slower paced and the poses are held for 1-5 minutes in order to stress the connective tissues, including the tendons, fascia, and ligaments, resulting in increased circulation and improved flexibility. Additionally, the slower pace of Yin helps to cultivate inner stillness and peace. Yin yoga is a great complement to vigorous yoga classes and sports such as running, cycling, swimming, etc. This class is appropriate for all levels.
