ASHTANGA VINYASA YOGA
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in a set sequence of poses that are logically arranged to safely and progressively develop a healthy body and mind.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga integrates three elements of practice known as TRISTHANA click to read more
ASHTANGA MYSORE STYLE
Known as 'Self Practice' because students learn individually within a group setting. Each student is guided and progresses at his or her own pace. Students are taught one pose at a time and progress as proficiency in each pose is developed. The teacher gives verbal and physical guidance uniquely to help each student safely progress.
New and beginner students learn slowly and practice is short because students are not practicing many poses but generally within one month practice builds to about one hour and eventually around 90 minutes
*New to Ashtanga Mysore Style Practice requires a one month commitment with minimum 2x per week.
ASHTANGA INSPIRED VINYASA
These classes have the same structure as Ashtanga, warm up, open up, get hot, get deep, cool down and Meditate. The difference is there is no set sequence like Ashtanga, classes are creatively and intuitively formulated integrating Tristhana.
These classes are more restorative in nature and do not utilize Tristhana in the same fashion as the other Vinyasa based classes. Since my other classes are generally strong and intense with a fair amount of movement, these Yin classes offer a compliment and contrast in that they are soft, slow and deep with less movement.
Yin classes may be offered on MOON Days when there is no Ashtanga practice.

Human beings are about 75% water and we are affected by the phases of the moon. The phases of the moon are determined by the moon’s relative position to the sun. Full moons occur when they are in opposition and new moons when they are in conjunction. The sun and moon exert a gravitational pull on the earth. Their relative positions create different energetic experiences that can be compared to the breath cycle.
The full moon energy corresponds to the end of inhalation when the force of prana is greatest. This is an expansive, upward moving force that makes us feel energetic and emotional, but not well grounded. The Upanishads state that the main prana lives in the head. During the full moon we tend to be more headstrong.
The new moon energy corresponds to the end of exhalation when the force of apana is greatest. Apana is a contracting, downward moving force that makes us feel calm and grounded, but dense and disinclined towards physical exertion.
Practicing Yoga over time makes us more attuned to our natural cycles. Observing moon days is one way to recognize and honor the rhythms of nature so we can live in greater harmony with it."
