AcroYoga is a partner practice that blends the wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics, and the loving kindness of Thai Massage. It cultivates trust, playfulness, and community, while building strength, balance and flexibility. Typically working in teams of three, where each takes turns basing, flying and spotting, to support and empower each other to reach new heights and celebrate the joy of embodiment.

Candlelight Yin Yoga
A class created for all fitness levels, Yin is a style of yoga designed to work, lengthen, and strengthen the deep muscle tissue: the Myofascia. This will complement anyone including all yogis, athletes, and students of all types. The class will be accompanied by soothing music and held in a room lit by candlelight to build a relaxing, enjoyable experience.
Meditation and Yin Yoga
Experience the benefits when meditation meets yin yoga. In this class you will be guided through a meditation, and explore a variety of stretches targeting the connective tissue, ligaments, and joints. Enjoy the dimmed lights and soothing music as you allow your body and mind to achieve a deeper state of rest and relaxation.
An intense, full body workout designed to strengthen muscles, increase flexibility and improve overall health. My intention is to help students to create long lean muscle mass, burn fat, and increase fitness levels. It is performed on a yoga mat making it zero impact, therefore protecting joints and muscles from the pounding of other exercises that include running and jumping.
Think weight room meets yoga. Vinyasa yoga with weights helps build the balance between strengthening and lengthening your body while emphasizing the power of your breath. In this class you will have the option to incorporate weights to help build bone density and tone your body. At the same time, the upbeat music will help fuel your energy for a worthwhile workout.

Explore balancing postures with strong emphasis on core strength while pushing yourself through tough mental focus and meditation.
The practice of Yoga is a complete system of practices including stretches, meditation and breathe exercises that date back to ancient India. It works on the physical and subtle body to soften the dense outer layers of our being allowing us to feel and know ourselves. By softening the physical body, we relax and become more comfortable with who we are. Yoga brings us closer to what is true for us and gives us courage to stand rooted in our authentic selves. We become confident and peaceful because we realize we are already perfect (even within our imperfections) and exactly where we need to be in this process and journey called life.
