Class Descriptions

Each class is unique and sign up only via website/client portal.


Below you will find more information about each class.

CARDIO YOGA is a full body workout. The movements are faster paced to increase your heart rate and ultimate calorie burn. This is a great workout to challenge yourself and increase your strength and stamina. Some weeks we use props, resistance bands for example. Participation is only to the best of your ability and the goal is to keep moving. Cardio Yoga is held on Saturday mornings from 8:45a-9:30a.

YOGA FOR STRESS AND RELAXATION is a slower paced relaxed class. There are several balancing poses to enhance focus and reduce stress. The class focuses on relaxing your body and mind while intertwining your movements with effective breathing. This class ends with savasana mixed with optional essential oil massaged onto your hands and wrists. This is also a great class for beginners, recovery day, and to de-stress and relax. This class is held on Sundays from 3:30pm-4:30pm.

YOGA FOR BEGINNERS AND FLEXIBILITY is a class that is geared toward whole body movement for stretching that within time increases your flexibility. This class is also very educational. There are several moments during the class special focus and instruction is given for proper safety and alignment. Gaining knowledge of proper body alignment and precautions is critical to avoiding injury and practicing safely. This class is held on Thursday evenings from 6:30pm-7:30pm.

MINI ME ANIMAL YOGA is a class for parents (or any adult) and children combo. There are not live animals. We learn and have fun together as we have an interactive story with animal poses. This class also encourages children to try and do their best everyday in their lives. Kids were created for a purpose too and have great potential. Great bonding time for children and parents. These classes are held on two Saturdays per month and have two separate times to best fit your schedule.

HEATED YOGA classes are in a smaller room with higher temps around 90-95. This class is not suited for everyone so please ensure this is the right class for you. This class is held on Friday mornings. There are two available times: 5:45a-6:30a or 6:45a-7:30a.

YOGA WITH PAINT is a unique and fun class. It brings out our artistic, outgoing, fun loving inner child. You will burn calories and stretch your muscles without realizing it because your enjoying yourself too much. You can schedule a regular class or a class with blacklights and glow paint. You will have a large canvas-like material as your ‘art work station’. The class will begin with a few stretches, safety and alignment cues and movements with tips and precautions. It usually does not get slippery and instructions are given to avoid this. Each participant chooses their own colors and moves on their canvas to create a one of a kind masterpiece. The canvas can be picked up within the next few days following your class. When you pick up your artwork it will remain in the size as it was in class. This enables you to cut and edit your canvas to the size and shape you desire. This class is scheduled personally by agreed upon availability. Contact me to schedule your personal class. Classes are required for a minimum of two participants and a maximum of 4. Larger groups of 6-15 can be scheduled, based on the availability of the common space for the entire building.

CARDIO DANCE class geared with clean hip hop and other music. There is no vulgar statements or curse words. See the schedule for days and times. Join this class for an active fun fat burning time! This class is held on Saturday mornings from 7:45a-8:30a.

ZUMBA coming soon! (Estimated to be added to the schedule the end of May)

Each class ends with an encouraging scripture, quote, poem, or words.
I want each person to leave class feeling encouraged and empowered.

If you have any other questions please reach out to me.

What kind of Yoga is right for YOU?

What kind of Yoga is right for YOU?

There are many types of yoga in today’s economy.

To determine what kind of yoga is right for you needs, wants, goals, and your body you need to answer a few questions for yourself.

Am I looking for a quick fix for therapy or restorative purposes?

Do I have some specific goals I want to meet?

Am I looking for a new fitness program?

What characteristics am I looking for in a yoga class: to relieve stress, increase balance, gain more peace, etc.

If your unsure then it would seem best to try different classes.

Learn some of the top 11 styles of Yoga here.

I always tell new students or first-time yogis three things:

1: Never judge Yoga by your first class. Each class, theme, and styles are different. Same concept as if you went to a gym, hated the treadmill and decided the entire gym was ‘not for you’ and you never returned.

2: Never judge Yoga by your first teacher. There are many different kinds of teachers, personalities, experience, attitudes, and the list always continues. Some people just ‘click’ as they say. Sometimes you may join a class and you love everything about it and other times you don’t.

It’s okay to attend several classes. It’s okay to like several teachers.

This is YOUR journey, YOUR decision, land you can determine where you go and what you like.

Who wants to attend a class they hate? Not me and I am sure you don’t either.

3: Never compare yourself to others and their journey. Your day 1 may be different than someone else’s. Your goals and experience will be different too. What may be your day 1 may be their day 1000. You want to go for YOU. Don’t compare yourself to others and be in an environment you can be yourself and enjoy yourself.

Click on the link on the homepage “11 Common Types of Yoga” to gather a little bit of information.

This is not all the information about each one. The information below is a mere highlight of some of the areas.

These are just 11 different types you may come across. There is much more information about each one. This is just a mere introductory guide. Looking for new information and classes can be overwhelming sometimes.

Remember this is YOUR workout, YOUR time, and YOU get to choose. Don’t be afraid to try several kinds of classes until you find the right class for you and your body.

You may be surprised you may find more than one class you love and attend regularly.

Good luck and have fun on your new journey!
