Ashtanga Foundation - (start here if you are new to yoga): Suitable for all levels, these classes offer new students a thorough and safe introduction to the Ashtanga Vinyasa method. The Series builds the strength and confidence necessary to move into more advanced classes in the studio.  For more experienced practitioners, the course provides a tool for reviewing and strengthening the fundamental concepts that make the Ashtanga form so dynamic.  We recommend new students start at the beginning of the four week series, however, since this is an ongoing course students can drop in for any of the classes and make up the missed classes in the following cycle. Drop-ins are welcome. Subjects covered include but are not limited to: breath, energy locks, alignment, learning the primary series, inversions, opening and closing chants, etc.

Aerial onlYoga classes utilize a soft, fabric, inversion swing that is used to relieve compressed joints and to bring greater alignment to the spine. Every class will explore a series of postures meant to elicit a sense of weightlessness while forming new relationships with gravity. These classes are small, 6 - 8 students, and require preregistration.  
 
Note: Classes are offered on a first come first serve basis.  To pre-register, pay for your session in advance and we will send you an email confirmation for your reservation.

Pre-scheduled classes will be offered on Sundays, one each quarter, from 4 - 5:30pm. A minimum of 4 students per class is required.  
 
The fee for pre-scheduled classes: Drop-in - $25/class - Discounts available for multiple class packs.
 
AERIAL YOGA CLASSES ARE GREAT FOR:
Opening the chest and hips, taking stress off the joints & decompressing the spine, practicing inversions & backbends without neck/back strain, building core strength, building upper body strength, learning to fly...
This very special class is offered four times each year in recognition of the changing seasons...and is a long standing onlYoga tradition. Part endurance, part meditation - completely empowering. Utilizing the magic of Vinyasa we will continually move through many Sun Salutations and end with Kirtan.  Stay after for healthy nibbles and conversation.  I hope you can attend.  All levels welcome! Knowledge of Surya Namaskara A is helpful but not required.

The number 108 is a mala (Sanskrit for garland) and is a tool used in meditation. Used to count the number of mantra repetitions completed per sitting, repetition using a mala is an effective way of keeping your mind focused, and can make meditation more relaxing and soothing. Historically, malas have been used as a part of an integrated spiritual practice that may also contain hatha yoga. A mala contains 108 beads and a larger "meru" bead. The tassled "meru" bead is symbolic of the transcended state, and indicates the beginning and end of a cycle. The significance of "108" is related to the Brahmand (universe), which is said to be made up of 108 elements so 108 represents the universe.
