Heated Yoga is like a sweat lodge or sauna, with yoga! Primarily for challenging the chemistry of the body and clearing impurities, while also allowing for deeper postures. Our hot yoga classes are around 90 degrees and include assisting and teaching instructions to individual needs. We take a break from heated classes during the summer months.
Yoga Lab includes a brief warm-up followed by exploring a small group of similar postures - floor backbends, for example. This is the class to ask questions, see demonstrations, receive adjustments, learn modifications for your body, learn the key actions and key alignment principles. Please note yoga lab is 2 credits (or free with monthly unlimited).
Yoga Therapeutics class is for everyone. This is an opportunity for students to bring individual needs and have a teacher adapt the tools of yoga to you.
