Special for the holidays! 

Step into a classic yoga sequence that methodically works the entire body leaving you feeling refreshed, energized and at ease. This authentic yoga sequence allows space for meditative focus. A must for any student of yoga.

Featuring the Ashtanga invocation, Sun A & B Salutations and Primary or Intermediate series of asana (poses) offered with modifications, variations and rest.

This session can allow for lots of movement if desired, however, we take a sustainable approach where rest is encouraged.

This vinyasa (flow) class is led with verbal cues. The instructor will determine which offerings are appropriate for the group so that Ashtanga beginners can develop their practice and continuing students can progress. 

Join us in a supportive space to learn Ashtanga yoga. All are welcome to Ashtanga yoga, however some prior experience with yoga may be helpful.
