Yoga is a system of living that is designed to promote peace of mind, deeper awareness of ourselves, and a healthy body. Tai Chi was originally a martial art and is now being practiced as a form of gentle and effective exercise, sharing many health benefits with yoga.

Vinyasa

Vinyasa is the linking of breath to movement. Vinyasa yoga classes tend to move more quickly than Hatha classes, as there tends to be more movement of the body with each exhale and inhale. Some asanas may be held for a longer period of time.

Kripalu

Kripalu is the compassionate yoga where an environment of acceptance and safety are created. The union of body, mind, and spirit are experienced through class structure of centering, breath awareness, warm-ups, a series of postures and a time of rest. The class aims to meet students where they are.

Kripalu Flow

Kripalu Flow offers a supportive environment for students, especially those with limitations in movement and range of motion. Modifications are available and encouraged for the student's need. This class has the elements of a regular Kripalu class with use of props such as Sky Styx occasionally and other props like blankets and blocks regularly. The body and mind are brought into harmony with breathwork, meditation, and movement. Class is multi-level.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi for Arthritis helps participants to gain pain relief, better balance to avoid falls, and improve quality of life. The program improves muscular strength, fitness, and flexibility in a supportive community environment.
