Vinyasa = connection of movement + breath. Expect a gradual progression of poses and sequences. We start slow and work through each pose individually to work on alignment, often holding poses for a few breaths. Once we have our alignment, we progress into one breath per movement and get in a flow.
Power vinyasa is very similar to vinyasa described, but expect to sweat more and be more challenged. This class works on stamina, strength, flexibility and endurance whereas vinyasa focuses mostly on flexibility. We will still flow, but plan to pause for specific strengthening moves such as ab exercises to strengthen our core.
Plan to sit still (in a comfortable position) to open and focus your mind in order to observe your thoughts and feelings without judgement.

Yin is considered the opposite to Vinyasa yoga which is considered a “yang” style of yoga. Unlike vinyasa which focuses on your muscles, yin yoga focuses on deep connective tissues. Yin is a slower, more meditative practice where most poses are held for 3-5min and sometimes longer.
Similar to Yin style yoga, where most poses are held for 3-5min. This style of Yin links each pose together in a sequence, for a more fluid experience.
As the name suggests, this class is a combination of both Vinyasa and Yin practices. The first half of the class is Vinyasa to warm up the body and release extra energy to prepare you to lengthen muscles and relax during Yin in the second half of the class. This style class is a perfect way to get curious about what Yin has to offer for those who typically practice Vinyasa.
