We've all been a beginner to yoga at some point, and this is the perfect place to start! Beginner's Vinyasa (flow yoga) class has more instruction and alignment cues than most classes, while moving through traditional pranayama and vinyasa asanas (breathing practices and yoga postures). In vinyasa classes, we will learn how to connect our breath with movement. The class will be a good combination of movement, stretching and relaxation. Learn the basic postures and basic language/sanskrit. All levels welcome. Current yoga students encouraged to brush up on the basics, too! The class ends in a 10 minute final relaxation/savasana (think mini meditative nap).
Extreme Beginners Yoga
Let’s go back to where it all starts, the foundation. Building healthy habits, and perhaps ditching some as well, this class is designed to help you build a safe, strong, and stable foundation in your practice. Whether you are brand new to the mat, or a seasoned practitioner, we will work together on refining alignment, transitions, and basic breathing techniques.
Flow & Yin
Flow & Yin is a great class for someone who wants 50% movement and 50% slowing down + deep stretching. We'll move around just enough to build some heat and then follow the movement with a relaxing, quiet, slow-paced, stretching style of yoga. Yin poses are held for a little bit longer: 45 seconds - 5 minutes at a time. This is an accessible class for all levels of practitioners.
Flow & Yoga Wheel
This yoga class blends creative vinyasa yoga with a new prop - the yoga wheel! We often incorporate back bends and standing poses in this class! Though it is suitable for all levels, there is a limited number of space available. Please call, email or reserve your space on MindBody! You’re welcome to bring your own yoga wheel if it is standard size, otherwise you can buy or use one that is available at the studio.
Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is the Yoga of awareness. Often referred to as a science of angles, it is a sacred path to the uncoiling of your consciousness and your full potential through the science of postures, meridian point activation, mantra and breath. Steven’s big focus on teaching are the pattern and habit shifting aspects of the practice. Steven chooses sets that range anywhere easy to challenging, but the class remains an all levels class as Steven wants Kundalini Yoga to be accessible to every body.
Please note: Class is 90 min, Tuesdays 5:45pm - 7:15pm. Special rate: $10-20 sliding scale per class. Class packages/memberships not accepted for this class only.
Join us for this higher energy, astanga-inspired vinyasa yoga class. This class incorporates pranayama (breathwork) into a challenging asana (posture) sequence!

This class incorporates a 10-15 minute de-stress period that may include meditation, stretching and savasana.
Qi Gong & Tai Chi
These ancient practices are designed to strengthen the body, open the mind and awaken the spirit by fortifying and improving the flow of Qi by slow, intentional movements that engage Qi mechanisms of the body. The purpose of the highest levels of practicing Tai Chi & Qi Gong is to develop conscious awareness of the primordial spirit, a difficult task that requires one to recognize and accept the artificial and fleeting nature of the ego. Each class will practice unique forms that help balance the spirit, mind and body that are influenced by nature, society and life style.
"Tai Chi and Qi Gong are an art that pleases the spirit, slows the aging process and prolongs life.”
Scholar Fu Yi (2000 years ago).
