Hello and welcome to a home of some of the most experienced, tuned in yoga teachers in town. Most of our Drop In Yoga classes are All Levels, everyone welcome. In these classes, the instructor offers options to beginners as well as more advanced students to make the class less or more challenging for you, depending on your ability. You are requested to listen to your own body and take the postures as lightly or as deeply as you wish.

We also have many Yoga Intensives, Class Series, and Courses to deepen your practice!

Centering Vinyasa

Sweethome    Level: All     When: Friday 9:30am

Vinyasa with Sweethome is a treat. Beginning and ending with chanting and threaded throughout with philosophical ponderings, this class is a beautiful, core strengthening flow. Thursday eve she will teach to practitioners who already have a solid practice, whereas Friday morning is suitable for All Levels as her years of teaching allow her to modify for beginners and advanced yogis and all in between.

Gentle and Restorative Yoga

Carol Level: All When: Thurs 7:30-8:45pm

Come sink into deep relaxation through gentle and restorative yoga and sound.
Beginning and ending with sacred sound meditations, this class will move through some gentle opening postures and then settle into softness with restorative poses to passively let go and open the body. As we quiet, we cultivate our attention and consciously let go of stress allowing the body to return to it’s own vital rhythms. Musical accompaniment, listening, chanting and focused attention on the breath encourage and guide us. Release the weight of the body and the mind… and enter the sanctuary of the Self.

An all-levels Hatha Flow class threaded and inspired by mantras, Sanskrit chants that support centering and transformation.

Shadow Yoga

Teacher: Lita   Level: All     When: M, T, W, Th, F morning intensives

Lita is a talented and knowledgable teacher of Shadow Yoga. Via Shadow Yoga, she promotes the cultivation of the physical, mental, and emotional qualities necessary for harmonizing the winds of the body (vayu), eradicating energetic blockages, and revealing stability.  Efficient, challenging, and safe: by illuminating areas of weakness or blindness, we find our power. Shadow Yoga is a school of yoga founded by master teacher Zhander Remete. Rather than being a “new invention”, it is a revival of traditional ways of cultivation. The preliminary work frees the movement of breath and life force which may stagnate in areas of trauma, injury or tension in the body, reducing the benefits of the practice and our freedom. Once some degree of mastery is reached with the preliminary work, advanced work comes without effort.
