GENTLE FLOW: An introduction to all different styles in one class. Class begins in a time of silence as we focus on breath work and set an intention for our practice. Participants will move though a variety of postures, including balance work, basic flow sequencing, and core strengthening poses before finishing in a restful posture. 

INTRO TO YIN: Calm and balance the mind and body while you increase mobility and flexibility in your joints and tissues. Poses are designed to release deep tension and are held 1-3 minutes, sometimes longer. Great for CrossFit athletes or anyone who wants to improve strength and flexibility.

YOGA FOR CROSSFIT: Classes are designed with athletes in mind. Postures focus on stretching and opening the chest, shoulders, hamstrings, quadriceps, hips, and ankles. Participants will increase flexibility while strengthening the core and lower back. This is a great way to recover from or prepare for workouts and prevent injuries.

CANDLELIGHT RESTORATIVE YOGA: Settle in and relax in candlelight. Restorative postures are designed to release tension deep within the body’s joint and ligaments using many props to assist you in each posture. Slow down to soothe the nervous system and create a deeper understanding of your body while you boost your immune system and connect deeper to God. Bring all the props you have or borrow some of ours.

YOGAFAITH FLOW: A Christ-centered YogaFaith class including prayer, meditation, Scripture, movement, rest, and stillness. Classes include praise and worship music, soft instrumental, or no music at all. This is a gentle flow class with Jesus as the center of our focus and movement.

YOGAFAITH NIDRA: Experience a Christ-centered, systematic approach to relaxation and prayer as you are guided into deep rest and stillness. We begin with light stretching and a centering prayer before beginning our guided meditation practice. All that you need to do is lie down on the floor. Bring a blanket, pillow, mat, or anything else that would allow you to rest. Leave your phone and distractions behind!

SPECIALTY WORKSHOPS: Fusion workshops combine yoga practice and spiritual direction, along with Bible Study, prayer, meditation, and journaling in community with other believers. Participants will experience different spiritual practices (the examen, contemplative imagination exercises, centering prayers, lectio divina, etc), engaging conversations, and personal growth. Each two-hour workshop is topical and designed to help you create space to be with God and deepen the integration between mind, body and spirit.
