The class starts begins and ends with warm-up and cool-down stretching.

BEGINNER LEVEL YOGA CLASS
All levels and abilities, no experience required. (no specific level of flexibility required either...we know you were wondering...)
This class is suitable for beginners and students of all ages and fitness levels, no experience or flexibility required. You will begin by focusing on the basics guided by detailed instructions on how to perform each posture and improve alignment. The instructor will demonstrate poses and guide you into them step by step.
Options/modifications are given throughout the class to accommodate varying degrees of strength and/or flexibility. All of the postures have been carefully chosen, are suitable for most bodies and are easily modified to fit the individual needs of the practitioner. You will be encouraged to work at your level, honour your body and limitations and go deeper when you feel you're ready in a non-competitive environment.
This class will help you become familiar with the foundational poses and prepare you for a regular yoga practice. A variety of yoga props are used to help students ease into poses; the instructor will teach you how to use them and incorporate some or all of them into classes. Please note...we do not practice poses that require kneeling or pressure on the knees and wrists as we find many of our clients have sensitive knees and/or wrists. Sun salutations are not practiced in this class.
Restorative Yoga with Thai Massage
BEGINNER LEVEL YOGA CLASS
Yin Yoga uses long, passive holds, comfortably supported by bolsters, yoga blocks and blankets to release tension in the deep, dense connective tissues of the body. Yin yoga increases flexibility, especially in the spine and hips and restores and rehabilitates joints and muscles. It also emphasizes stillness and silence.
All poses are done seated or reclined on the matt, there are no standing poses. There is no pressure on the knees and wrists in this class and we will go up and down to the mat only once, thus making it more gentle and available to those with less mobility. Yin Yoga helps to calm anxiety and lift depression.
This class is open to all fitness levels - no previous experience or flexibility level required.
If you are new to yoga, this is a great class to start with.
Strength and Resistance Training = Healthier and Stronger!
Group Personal Training is more than just an economic alternative to one-on-one training. Our group classes offer the benefits of working with our incredible personal trainers at a fraction of the cost of the private rate with the added benefit of peer support, accountability and motivation. Participants do not have to be at the same fitness level to benefit from group training. Custom designed workouts using light weights and resistance bands are multi-level and appropriate for absolute beginner to lower intermediate fitness levels. These classes are so much fun that when the class is finished, there is usually a chorus of..."What, we're done already?" (Come experience it for yourself, we wouldn't lie to you!)
Multi-Level Instruction, appropriate for beginners to lower intermediate level, no experience required.
BEGINNER LEVEL YOGA CLASS
This class is a gentle, uplifting class that incorporates yoga therapy for knees, traditional Hatha postures, and winds down with some restorative postures. If you've stayed away from or found yoga classes too difficult because you have sensitive knees/joints or find it difficult to get up and down from the floor for other reasons, this class is perfect for you. We use a wide variety of props, including blocks, bolsters, and sometimes chairs to ensure that this class is accessible as possible. It's also appropriate for those with no knee joint issues as the class is both invigorating and relaxing. Its great for anyone who wants to build a little strength around their knees, and find gentle stretches to also soothe your body.
This class is open to all fitness levels - no previous experience or flexibility level required. If you are new to yoga, this is a great class to start with.
This very gentle class is slow paced and helps to improve flexibility. Yoga Stretch is ideal for students of all levels who want to improve flexibility, are recovering from injuries or want to limber up tight bodies.
