Kate Doran instructs the following:
  • Power Basics
  • This class will teach you the fundamental poses and breathing techniques used in all of our power yoga classes. If you are new to the practice, looking to fine-tune some of your poses, and/or you want a slower paced flow - this is a great class for you! This class is heated to 90 degrees. 

  • Power Hour
  • In just one hour you will stretch your muscles, build strength, find your balance, open your hips, get upside down and enjoy some stillness. You will leave feeling refreshed and invigorated. This class is suitable for all levels - from raw beginners to experienced yogis. This class is heated to 90 degrees.

  • Free Meditation
  • Please join us for 15 minutes of stillness and meditation.

  • Gentle Power (No Heat)
  • This class is designed to move and stretch your body at a slower pace. If you are looking for a class without any jumping or fancy arm balances, this is the class for you. We do not heat the room during this practice.

  • Power Up/Power Down
  • In this class you will find stillness in power, then experience the power in stillness. There will be an equal blend of flow and deep stretching. This class is heated.

  • Community Meditation
  • This 60 minute class will take you on a journey into deep relaxation. You will learn the tools to help you meditate more easily and find equanimity. 

    Through the breath work of Pranayama you will begin to still the inner chatter. Through guided meditation you begin to learn how to release and free yourself of negative thought patterns. With Yoga Nidra you will experience a deep relaxation beyond the Savasana that ends most yoga classes.
     
    Community Class Price: $8 or you can use your unlimited class pass.

  • Yoga Camp
  • It’s your turn! Treat yourself to a week-long immersion in yoga. During this week-long intensive, we’ll start our day with a yoga class or two and then spend the rest of the day studying postural alignment, anatomy, and yoga philosophy. This is a great chance to immerse yourself and dig deeper into your yoga.

  • Yoga 101: What is Yoga?

We will start 5,000 years ago and trace Yoga’s steps into the 21st century. During this workshop we will watch some documentary footage and engage in a dialogue designed to unearth the depth and breadth of this ancient practice.

  • Yoga 101: Introduction to the Yoga Sutras
  • The Yoga Sutras by Patanjali provide the philosophical foundation for our practice of yoga. This concise collection of 196 aphorisms provides a roadmap to liberation from suffering. In this workshop we’ll look at the high level philosophical context of the Sutras and dial into the practical lessons of individual sutras, including a discussion of the 8 limbs of Yoga.
