Stress-Free Gentle Flow (SFGF)
A milder class that focuses on gentle movement, our Stress-Free Gentle Flow (SFGF) class is ideal for people seeking stress relief, those looking for a break from vigorous classes, older adults, and those recovering from injuries.
This class focuses on triggering the “rest and digest” response by slowing down the body to allow it to calm down, heal, and recover. Recommended for everyone.
Pranayama and Meditation
Pranayama and Meditation is a 30-minute class that teaches basic breathing techniques to bring awareness to the body, strengthen the lungs and core, and cultivate feelings of calmness. This class is also a gateway to a meditation practice.
A much-needed counterbalance to Power or Vinyasa styles, Yin opens the body and mind through longer, passive postures that apply gentle stress to joint tissues via body weight and gravity.
FNR is a beginner friendly yoga foundations class designed to build your strength and improve body awareness to move intelligently into different poses. It is recommended for beginners and those who wish to refine their practice.

FNR Athletics is perfect for beginners, recommended as cross-training for athletes, and excellent for students looking to transition from FNR to Vinyasa.
Kundalini consists of simple exercises in combination with breathing techniques, mantra, and meditation. Open to all students and recommended to those who wish to find mental stability and clarity alongside their physical practice.
