Ashtanga Inspired - Level Open

If you love Vinyasa but find Ashtanga's primary long seated sequence a bit boring, this class was created for you! Ashtanga Inpsired is the perfect "masala," or mixture, of Vinyasa Flow and Ashtanga postures. In this 90 minute class, Ashtanga postures from primarily the first and second series will be mixed in a non-orthodox order, leaving more space for new challenges and surprises for both beginners and more experienced Ashtangis.

Guided classes give beginners a sense of the
structure of the practice. The teacher leads the
class as a group with clear instruction on each
pose & the breathing technique. Guided classes
are great for learning how to practice and also
for the energy that comes from everyone
breathing and moving together.
Open to all by donation. Teacher in training guides a Radiantly Alive yoga class.

Hatha Yoga is commonly translated as the yoga that brings union "of the pairs of opposites." These innovative classes focus on alignment and embody a meaningful theme. By bringing attention to key principles of alignment, students are able to learn effectively, progressively move toward a deeper apex posture, and find their growing edge. Over time students can expect to be introduced to the full breadth of asanas. There is no set sequence of postures. Flowing sequences are combined with poses that are held for longer periods to encourage both alignment awareness and freedom of movement. Props and modifications are offered when necessary to help make poses accessible to students of all abilities.

Tibetan Heart Yoga is a gentle asana practice with a strong focus on the breath and different meditation techniques. It combines the traditional Indian asanas (postures) with authentic visualizations, meditations and breath practices of Tibetan Buddhism. Historically, when Buddhist teachings traveled from India to Tibet, the Yoga Sutras and related yogic teachings were transmitted at the same time. Hence, the Buddhist lineages of Tibet have always considered yoga a key aspect of Buddhist practices. Tibetan Heart Yoga emphasizes the meditative and spiritual aspects of yoga as being of equal importance as the postures.
 
Yin
Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues within our bodies, providing a deeper stretch through holding the poses up to 10 minutes in length.
Yin is suitable for all levels of students.
