Power Vinyasa is a vigourous style of yoga with emphasis on strength and flexibility, using your breath to flow through each movement. Power Vinyasa heals, detoxifies and exhilarates the body and mind through movement, balance and intention. It’s a dynamic, energizing practice that sculpts, hones and tones every muscle in the body. You don’t need to be especially flexible or incredibly fit to do this yoga. This 60 minute class is an intense practice and a natural way to build long and lean muscles while finding balance between strength and flexibility.
This series is for all levels. We offer Hot Hatha class consisting of 26 postures in a set sequence, each sequence preparing the body for the next allowing you to gain strength, flexibility and balance while also incorporating controlled breathe to oxygenate and energize the body. Hot Hatha works every muscle, gland, and organ flushing all the anatomical systems. It is an excellent foundation to learn proper alignment and develop concentration, that will compliment other styles of yoga. Be prepared to sweat!
Yoga Sculpt is a 60 minute total body workout designed to tone and shape all the right spots. Yoga Sculpt combines resistance training with free weights and yoga poses to create long lean muscles, burn fat and tone the entire body. This intense, but easy to follow program compliments your regular yoga practice while pushing your strength and flexibility to new heights. Get ready to feel the burn and have fun!
Yin yoga is a slow-paced, non-heated style of yoga with asanas that are held for up to 5 minutes.

Using your breath and holding the postures for longer lengths allows us to get deep into the connective tissues including the tendons, fascia and ligaments.

Yin yoga is more of a meditative approach to yoga, working on silencing the mind and connecting the mind and body.

If you have any injuries, please allow for the injuries to heal before taking Yin.

What is HIIT?

HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) alternates periods of short bursts of intense exercise with less intense recovery period. For example, 30 seconds high intensity exercise followed by 10 seconds rest. A number of studies have shown that HIIT stimulates the body to expend more calories and result in more fat burning both during and after a workout than continuous exercise.

Why Combined Yoga & HIIT?

The benefits to the body and mind that yoga brings and the cardio and fat burning of a HIIT workout are a perfect marriage. You warm the body up consciously, work the body intensively, then cool down, reconnect the body & mind as well as help the muscles recover by stretching them back out. It’s the perfect combination to add to strengthen your yoga practice, sculpt your body, or add to any other exercise routine you may have.
