Class Descriptions...

Sunrise Yoga (All Levels)

Sunrise Yoga is a Mixed Level Hatha Flow class suitable for the enthusiastic beginner and intermediate student. Modifications and enhancements will be given as needed.

This class will start with a gentle warmup to wake the body. Then, depending on the needs of the students, we will either practice the componets of Hatha Flow in a slow and easy manner or move into a more vigorous Vinyasa Flow. Class finishes with stretching, deep relaxation.

Kundalini Yoga & Meditation (All Levels)

A traditional form of kriya yoga brought to the west by Yogi Bhajan that utilizes breath, movement, angles and sound to awaken energy flowing in the spine, the chakra system and the subtle bodies. Classes include a kundalini yoga set, a meditation and mantra that work directly to strengthen and balance the nervous system and the endocrine system while raising consciousness.

*Buddhist Yoga & Meditation (Community Class)

Discover Buddhist kind-heart yoga and meditation principles. Taught by ordained Buddhist monk of the Theraveda tradition, Mettandanda Bhikkhu. Mettananda will be your guide to insight and awareness as he compassionately helps us navigate our way out of the multilayer stress syndrome of modern living. This class combines Buddhist style yoga, walking meditation, deep relaxation and sound healing.

* Community Class Pricing ($11)

*Gong Bath / Sound Healing (Community Class)

Gong Bath Sound Healing is a one hour immersion in the sacred and healing sound vibrations produced by symphonic gongs, bell bowls and drums. Played skillfully they produce a sound wave massage for the nervous system and can release the nervous system of many illnesses. Sonic waves bathe the listener with primordial sound as brain waves are altered to a deeply relaxed and meditative state. Gong Bath Sound Healing is excellent therapy for stress related issues creating shifts in energy that can be truly transformative.

* Community Class Pricing ($11)

* Gong Bath scheduled for the following Fridays in 2015: Jan 30th, Feb 27th, March 27th, April 24th & May 29th
