“All the body’s systems and processes – your nerves, your emotions – take instruction from what is going on with your breath.”
– Tara Stiles
All of our classes will be tailored to the students who attend the class each week. The primary focus of every class will be on learning how to breathe properly, using your breath as the foundation and fuel for your body and your practice.
Sweaty, stretchy & fun, what more do you need to know?This class will be similar to Hatha n’ Flow, customized each week, specifically for those in attendance. In this way, you are sure to get the most out of your Hot Lunch, so that it energizes and sustains you for the rest of your day 🙂

Cloud 9 *
this is so much more than a yoga class; it is a personalized healing experience, tailored specifically for you. in a warm studio with mellow tunes and the option to choose healing therapies (auricular acupuncture, cupping therapy and Moxibustion (heat therapy)); you are free to create the experience that best fits your needs.
Fire & Ice
Hatha (or in this particular case, Barre) and Yin. Yin and Yang. Sun and Moon. Hot and Cold (warming and cooling). There are lots of words to describe the one word that summarizes this class; balance.
Flow for Everyone
Class begins by awakening the body with breath, some gentle movements and Yin postures. A slow Vinyasa style flow comes next, with plenty of strength, balance, and breathing challenges.
several hours of open studio time. You can come and relax on your mat in the studio or curl up and read in the cozy lounge. You can ask questions, get corrections or just be. on your mat. in your body. in a safe, warm healing space. Time on your mat; without instruction or expectation, that is when you really get to listen to what your body is telling you, who knows what you might discover …
The main emphasis of this class is on breath work, connecting to your breath and integrating it into every moment and movement; essentially fusing your mind and body with breath. By energizing your body with this “life force”, you create presence by bridging your body and mind, which allows your breath to be the foundation of support and strength in balancing postures, the catalyst for movement in “flow” and the willingness to surrender into yin postures.
Gentle Flow with Yoga Nidra
“Gentle does not mean “easy”. This class moves slowly from one posture to the next with an emphasis on proper alignment and the appropriate use of modifications. By bringing attention to the details of alignment, students obtain maximum benefit and safety in their practice.
Hatha n’ Flow
A flow-y hatha class. For those familiar with the Bikram series, this class is like a more fluid Bikram practice, as opposed to continually stopping and starting. The “flow” is about flowing from breath into movement, not the common idea of flow meaning quickly moving from one posture to another. By applying the same fundamentals of a “static” posture to movement, the transitions or “flow” become seamless and FUN!
Jane Fonda Fusion
This class is all about small movements to target specific muscle groups. Building the strength you need to stabilize your joints to improve your balance. It is a common misconception that yoga is all about flexibility. Yoga requires AND improves both strength and flexibility. In this class the emphasis is on the component of strength. Don’t forget your leg warmers!
My 🤬 Neck Hurts
(yoga for those with neck, back and/or shoulder tension a/k/a EVERYONE).
Strength & Balance
Who wouldn’t like to be more stable? Yoga, and life, should be a balance of flexibility AND stability, strength and softness! Don’t be afraid of (avoid) your weak spots …. work to make them stronger!
“Music puts wings on the human spirit.” – Frank Sinatra
Sweatin’ to the Oldies
A hatha style class set to music. My love of music and belief that it can infuse a class with energy, inspiration and even cathartic release; is at the forefront of this class experience.
No prior yoga experience is necessary in order to participate in this class designed exclusively for men. Based on the principles of Power and Yin yoga, the sequence and postures of this class are structured to build strength, improve flexibility and provide cardiovascular benefits.
Yin is a meditative, slow, deep, stretch style of yoga. Practicing gentle, longer-held postures (with props) allows for a deeper stretch that opens the body and creates space in the connective tissues, muscles and joints. With the added benefit of Restorative postures; this class will facilitate a feeling of balance, calm and bliss!
Yoga Nidra is a systematic approach to deep relaxation and meditation. Participants are typically reclined in a very comfortable, supported position, then guided through a deep relaxation process that facilitates healing on a psychological and physiological level. Anybody can do Yoga Nidra, it cannot be done wrong. You will be left feeling rejuvenated, and maybe even, euphoric!
Community Acupuncture Clinic *
Community acupuncture is a nationwide movement to make the incredible healing benefits of acupuncture accessible and affordable. Community Acupuncture clinics offer treatment in a group setting and charge on a sliding scale format.
In an effort to allow early morning classes to be more meditative; these classes will have less instruction and a more mellow soundtrack / background music. Hatha Coffee is about breathing life into your whole being, so that you can start the day feeling centered and present in your body and mind.
Hatha Silent Class with Music
I want to say that this class will be in the exact format of the Bikram series, but I have a hard time “coloring inside the lines” so to speak. This class will be very close to that format because it is conducive to very minimal instruction/ “silence”. With very minimal instruction and music that is mellow and predominantly instrumental; this class is the perfect opportunity to focus your attention inward, to allow your practice to be a moving meditation.
Hatha Workshop *
An interactive yoga class, the actual structure of which, is relatively unimportant. We will be deconstructing postures to understand their separate parts, and then piecing them back together; with focused intention.
