…then see our Yoga Class Descriptions:
Beginner Yoga – These classes are perfect for beginners or those who want a pace which allows time for the student to learn breath and alignment within movement. Classes include standing postures for developing strength in the foundation, openness in the hips and hamstrings, balancing, seated postures and floor work.
Gentle/Restorative – Gentle movements guided by breath bring freedom in the joints and prepare the body and mind for the stillness and restful restorative poses (complete relaxation with props placed under the body to allow a sense of ‘letting go’).
Gentle Yoga & Guided Meditation (Yoga Nidra) – Prepare the body with gentle breath-centered movement, in order to deeply relax and let-go into a soothing resting pose while being guided into relaxation. Yoga Nidra (called sleep of the yogi’s) works through the conscious, sub-conscious and unconscious to release subtle long-held energy blocks from the entire being, leaving one more clear and open. Consistency is the key.
Yoga for 60’s Plus (chair yoga) – Perfectly paced and designed for the Baby-Boomer body. Gentle joint releasing and gentle stretching; may be from a chair, or with assistance of the wall. Deepen your breath, increase your energy and stamina as you stretch and move your body slowly.
Prenatal Yoga – Catered specifically for the pregnant woman (who is past their 12th week). These classes empower and prepare women for labor and birth through the practice of postures and breathing while developing strength and a deeper connection to their baby. Support persons are welcome to attend too.
Yoga & Meditation – An all level class that focuses on preparing the body for a ten minute meditation at the end of class. Postures from traditional yoga, plus pranayama techniques sprinkled throughout the class, open the energy channels and quiet the mind (as does all actual yoga :)…and then we sit.
Slow Flow/Stretch – Flowing in and out of each movement, synchronizing the breath with the body, becomes a powerful form of meditation and releases tight muscles. This class is slower paced than the Vinyasa Flow class, with time for an additional breath in any Sun Salutations, more seated and floor poses.
Vinyasa Flow – A strong class linking postures with movement and breath. The practice of alignment principles and multiple Sun Salutations along with a wide variety of asana to open and free the whole body. Standing poses, back-bends, arm balances and floor work may be included, at your level.
All Level – Enjoy a blend of postures with focus on breath and alignment in which variations/modifications are offered for varied levels of students. May include Sun Salutations of sorts, standing, balancing, seated postures and floor work.
Hot DetoxYoga – All Level – In a room heated to 90-95 degrees, this is NOT Bikram yoga, but rather a mixed level class with a balance of sweat and sweetness, for purification of mind and body. This class will involve specific breathing exercises and multiple spinal twists to facilitate efficient digestion/elimination, to wake up the Agni (inner fire), and clear the energy channels, all to promote purification and clarity. Must have your own mat PLUS a beach towel. Shower prior is ideal buy not required.
Kids Yoga/Family Yoga Fridays – (suggested for ages 3-4 and up) – The whole family can practice together! Parents and kids will move through kid friendly postures and breathing techniques to calm, to balance, to strengthen and to have fun! Cost: $8 cash/each participant.
Bhakti Yoga Chant Class – Join us in this rich tradition of singing the Holy names. A great Heart-opening soul-stirring practice and a great place to connect with your local yoga community.
Breathing into Wholeness – A Pranayama Class – This class is for any level and includes just a few minutes of movement/shaking/dancing in order to free up any stuck energy in the body…followed by a powerful breathing technique, done while laying down, for up to 45 minutes. Clear your unconscious and sub-conscious layers with this powerful class.

Pranic Healing with Cassandra ‘Ma’ Nischala Kalyani
Pranic Healing® is a highly evolved and tested system of energy medicine developed by Grand Master Choa Kok Sui that utilizes prana to balance, harmonize and transform the body’s energy processes. Prana is a Sanskrit word that means life-force. This invisible bio-energy or vital energy keeps the body alive and maintains a state of good health. In acupuncture, the Chinese refer to this subtle energy as Chi. It is also called Ruach or the Breath of Life in Hebrew.
Pranic Healing® is a simple yet powerful & effective system of no-touch energy healing. It is based on the fundamental principles that the body is a self-repairing living entity that possesses the ability to heal itself and that the healing process is accelerated by increasing this life force that is readily available from the sun, air and ground to address physical & emotional imbalances. Master Choa Kok Sui says “Life Energy or prana is all around us. It is pervasive; we are actually in an ocean of Life Energy. Based on this principle, a healer can draw in Pranic Energy or Life Energy from the surroundings.”
