There are so many styles of yoga, it’s hard to know where to start or which style is best for you. Read through our style guide to get a general sense of the classes or email us with specific questions to see what class might be the best one for you. If you are new to yoga, or new to a particular style, please inform the instructor so they may safely guide you.
Based on the teachings of master teacher B.K.S. Iyengar, this practice focuses on physical alignment through methodic explanations. With the utilization of props (yoga blocks, chairs, straps, and blankets) Iyengar is able to address complete beginners, people with injuries, and those looking to increase precision in a fast- paced practice.
Kundalini yoga utilizes movement, breath, sound, and meditation in a fast paced combination called “kriyas.” It is designed to energize and restore your mind and body while improving strength, flexibility, and endurance.
Vinyasa yoga is a challenging, dynamic, and contemporary form of yoga that emphasizes sun salutations and standing postures linked with breath. Classes can be physically demanding so be sure to let your instructor know if you are new to the practice.
With the skillful utilization of props, this style of yoga allows your body to rest in positions that are meant to restore energy to specific parts or systems of the body. Poses are held for many minutes at a time with relaxation as the focus.
While “hatha” simply refers to all physical yoga (as opposed to chanting or meditation), in modern day practice Hatha as a style has become a “hold all” for all yoga not easily categorized into the other styles. In a Hatha class you should expect to be able to settle into each pose without rushing, yet not feel constrained. There will be a decent amount of instruction and less focus on an aerobic outcome.
