Hot Vinyasa Flow
Vinyasa refers to the alignment of breath with movement to create a dynamic, flowing form of yoga. Poses are held for a specific number of breaths before moving on to the next pose; Vinyasa also refers to the movements or series of movements done between each pose in the series. This is a heated class (95-105').
This class is a blend of all three hot classes - beginning with Vinyasa yoga followed by Pilates and finished with hatha and yin yoga.
Yin is a slow paced, beautiful, calming class with passive poses targeting deep tissues, muscles and tendons. Poses are held in the gentle heat ( 80'F ) for longer periods while focusing on the breath. Prenatals welcome.

Yoga Class Etiquette
Please notify your instructor if you have an existing/previous medical condition or injury.
Hot Yoga: Bring a yoga, bath or beach towel to class with you to provide traction on your mat.
Bring water: Rule of thumb: take half your weight in pounds and drink that number in ounces (144 lbs = 72 ounces of water daily - 9 cups). Keep hydrated the day before as well.
Mats are provided.
Once you arrive: remove your shoes, hang your jacket and leave your belongings outside the yoga studio room.
Some people like to observe silence prior to class; doors open 30 mins before for savasana or to become acclimated to the temperature. Door is locked during class instruction.
Don’t push it. Avoid comparing your practice to another’s. Do what you can without straining or injuring yourself. You will go farther faster by taking a loving attitude toward yourself and work from where you are rather than from where you think you should be.
Eating will put stress on your digestive system making yoga an uncomfortable challenge. Eating light 2 hours prior is okay; nothing heavy.
If road conditions etc make it impossible to get to class, please text myself so we are not waiting for you (306.512.8714).
