Yoga : Workshops, Series, Private Individual Lessons, and Private Group lessons:

All our class will be offered in one of 4 ways for now. We can offer classes online through zoom,  in person at the studio, or in person at a private location. We will offer series and workshops on different topics through out the year at the studio. Listed below are the types of private lessons available.  In a private lesson you will receive one on one attention from the teacher.  You can specify what you want to learn and what you want to get out of the lesson. This is a great way to work on setting up a home practice, healing an injury or advancing your practice. You can also book a  private group lesson (up to 6 people) where you and a family group or a group of friends can schedule a class together. This can make it more fun and of course more affordable.  (also, if you come with your household members, you can remove your masks during practice). When you book a lesson (for an individual or a group) you can choose a type from the list, or create a custom yoga plan. You can use this set up to create a schedule that works for you. We can offer a one time lesson or set up a recurring schedule. To schedule your lesson, call or email Robin.

Types of yoga lessons available:

Yoga Foundations

This is perfect for students that are new to yoga.  You will have the opportunity to “workshop” specific poses and yogic ideas. It is a place to ask questions and discuss the details of the practice. There is less flow, or quick movement, and more focus on alignment of foundational poses. You will also get some information on the foundational aspects of yogic philosophy and the 8 limbs of the yoga practice. This can also be great for a seasoned practitioner, allowing you to ask questions and dive into the details of the practice.

Align and Focus

This is great class for people who want a more detailed practice. If you are physically active and new to yoga this class will work well for you. Working on alignment will set you up with a great foundation in yoga. It can also be helpful to the seasoned practitioner, as it will give you a chance to work on the details of your practice.

Breathe and Flow

This style will work matter what your experience with yoga is. Whether you are new to yoga,  or you have been practicing for a long time, we hope you will feel comfortable taking these classes.  Working with the breath and the vinyasa style of movement, these classes will help you start to play with your practice. This class is a little faster paced, and you will be offered more variations in the poses.

Raja Yoga 

This sequence is fun and challenging. The sequencing is inspired by our teacher, Mike Matsumura aka Sadhu Om.  It is geared towards advancing your practice, by allowing time for challenging  variations during asana (posture) practice. We also work on different pranayama (breath work) and kirtan (chanting) practices.  It is a little more challenging than our other classes, but as always anyone is welcome. If you are an athletic person and you want a challenge, or you are looking to dive into the deep end of your yoga practice, this is the class for you!

Relax and Restore

Sometimes we need to move slow and take it easy. This type of yoga is a great way to unwind and destress. Our intention is to make the physical practice accessible to anyone.   If you are new to yoga, you want to treat yourself to a gentle practice, or you need time and space to take care of your body, this is for you. We will move slowly and do more work on the floor. Using props, we will work on making the postures accessible. We hope you leave this classes feeling renewed.
