Class Descriptions

STRENGTHEN. STRETCH. BREATHE. MOVE. RESTORE. MEDITATE.

All of our classes have been curated to help support whatever your wellness goals may be. Many of our classes include self-massage therapy for myofascial release. The Yoga Tune Up® therapy balls and techniques will help alleviate pain, improve performance and get you on a path to optimal physical health. You will practice within your own body's unique range of motion using safe functional movements because of our strong emphasis on biomechanics. 

Roll and Strengthen: Build strength and mobility for active living, athletic performance and everyday life. We begin each class with targeted self-massage to warm the body's tissues and increase your body awareness so you can maximize the benefit of the rest of the class. Then, with functional movement and intelligent stretching, you'll strengthen your body while improving posture and mobility in a playful and safe environment.

Roll and Stretch: Pain relief, stress relief, and recovery. Whether you accumulate mental and bodily stress through work, athletic performance, or daily living this class is literally for everybody and every body. You will excavate tension through targeted self-massage and use active stretches to release overworked or underused muscles, improving your body's mobility for your favourite activity or sport or just everyday life.

Roll and Restore: Reconnect the body, mind and spirit. It's important for your overall well-being to learn how to truly relax so you can relieve you body from the stress of everyday life and restore your body to a state of physiological balance. Self-massage will erase areas of built up tension and restorative yoga postures combined with deep breathing will bring your body and mind to a state of bliss.

Restorative Yoga: This class is the perfect antidote to stress as you will practice deep relaxation. You will be guided through restorative yoga postures where your body is fully supported, without effort or strain, in different postures. This practice is accessible to anyone looking to improve their well-being, manage stress and cultivate calm. There will be some self-massage in this class, but the primary focus is on the postures.

Hatha Yoga / Gentle Hatha Flow: Align your body and mind. You will practice traditional and not so traditional poses in a slow and relaxed pace designed to bring out your best. Explore your individual range of motion, work on balance, strength and breathing. This is a wonderful practice that is accessible to everyone. Self-massage therapy is a small component in the class. 

Qi Gong: This ancient Chinese system for self-empowerment, self-healing, and increasing your energy fits well with yoga because it helps you get more out of your practice. Qi Gong focuses on the fundamentals of how to make yourself as effective as possible in everything you do, while maintaining balance and keeping you energized through mind, body and spirit. Our focus is to give you the tools for re-energizing yourself through simple movements and learning how to work with your body's energy system to make it stronger and more vibrant over time. You'll connect with what it means to feel the energy in your own body, collect it from the environment around you, and allow it to flow through you. 

Yogility: "Yogility" is a yoga-inspired movement class with a strong emphasis on mobility, stability and agility. This class combines the mind-body connectedness of a yoga practice with an exploration of functional, natural and primal movements of the human body. Like all of our classes, this is for anyone seeking to improve functional mobility in the joints, increase reflexive strength throughout the body, and improve articulation and fluidity in the spine. Level 1 is a gentler practice. Level 1/2 students should be able to get up and down from the floor and be able to put load onto the wrists and shoulders. 

Movement Essentials: This class will explore your personal movement patterns and re-establish a strong basis of movement to carry into everyday life. You'll gain greater awareness of how your muscles, joints, limbs and entire body move as a system and improve on the fundamental building blocks of safe, coordinated and powerful movement. These essential building blocks include: breath, core stabilization, feet and ankles, the spine, hips and shoulders.

Mindfulness Meditation: Your brain needs exercise, too. Learn mindfulness tools that you can use in everyday life to increase your overall sense of well being, navigate difficult experiences more skillfully and appreciate the good ones more deeply. No experience necessary. Only monthly membership pass holders can pre-register. However, anyone with an active membership at the studio is welcome to attend for free, just drop-in.
