Our 60 minute hot yoga class is heated to 102-104 degrees with 50% humidity. Our classes are All Levels, All The Time. Breath and movement are linked throughout the class to help the body move with more ease and create more depth in your practice. All Yoga Pulse teachers are trained and skilled in offering modifications; creating more space, utilizing prop support, and/or more challenging variations, depending on your intention. We encourage you to honor your body & practice where you're at that day! Some days we touch our toes and some days we don't-- that's OK! This class will make you breathe, move, and sweat! Vinyasa Yoga is based on the 8 Limbs of Yoga in Ashtanga.

Vinyasa is an approach to yoga in which you move from one pose directly into the next. There’s a flow to a Vinyasa yoga session, though the specific poses and the pace of the flow vary from one instructor to the next. 

You may also hear the term Ashtanga yoga used interchangeably with Vinyasa. While they’re similar in approach, the key difference is that Ashtanga sessions follow the same pattern of poses every time.

Vinyasa, on the other hand, usually moves from one pose to the next at the teacher’s discretion. This transition coordinates with your breathing. It’s done specifically as you exhale or inhale, and it gives you the feeling that your breath is moving your body.

 Heated Flow                                                                      Tuesday  & Thursday @ 5:00pm

                                 

Our 60 minute hot yoga class is heated to 102-104 degrees with 50% humidity. Our classes are All Levels, All The Time. Breath and movement are linked throughout the class to help the body move with more ease and create more depth in your practice. This class is unlike any traditional flow class, as it often incorporates other styles of yoga i.e. Kriya. This flow is non-traditional and incorporates movement medicine based on the connection of mind, body and spirit. Multiple types of Breath Practice, with nontraditional movement helps our: Glandular, Lymphatic, Vagus Nerve, and Central Nervous System to function optimally! Kriya is known for changing your attitude towards the practice, yourself, and others in your life. Practicing Kriya will take you on the Journey of The Self To The Self, Through The Self. This practice invokes the practitioner on a deeper level than thought to exist.

1. Kriya Yoga Goes Deeper Than Physical Hatha Yoga Practice 

The biggest difference between Kriya Yoga and Hatha Yoga is that Kriya Yoga is focused on more than just the physical benefits of yogic practice. Hatha Yoga is the practice of performing yoga poses. The word “hatha” means “force” – thereby emphasizing the physicality of this type of yogic practice. Hatha Yoga has become popular as a method of physical fitness, as the “asanas” (poses) used in Hatha Yoga can help improve strength and flexibility, and promote overall health and wellbeing.  

Kriya Yoga, on the other hand, is focused on more than just the physical benefits of yoga – but also on its spiritual benefits. Kriya Yoga technique is designed to incorporate meditation, selfinquiry, and surrendered devotion to help develop your spirit, and live a more conscious, fulfilling life.

Restorative Yoga + Sound Healing                        Tuesday Evening, 7pm-8pm

                                                                                                              

 

Restorative yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching, and intentional breathwork. During the long holds of restorative yoga, your muscles and fascia are allowed to relax deeply. It's a unique way to unravel ourselves from the pressures and stresses of life. This class focuses on breath work and the inward journey. Props, are used to support your body so you can deeply relax.

Candlelight Yin + Sound Healing                              Wednesday @ 7:30pm

                                                                                                                    Thursday @ 7:30pm

Our 60 minute Unheated Yin class takes place after our Heated Flow Class, Monday - Thursday evening at 7:30pm. When you first walk into class, the room is slightly warm but continues to cool down as the class progresses. For Unheated Yin, we keep the room dimly lit with candlelight to promote a sense of calm and allow you to really focus on your own practice without external distraction. Each class begins with a meditation and breath-work to help restore your vitality. Traditionally, Yin yoga works from the area of the navel to the knees, and the principles of Yin yoga can be applied to any of the body's tissues. However, the primary focus is the lower body because we tend to hold more tension in this area as we age.  The poses are sequenced in a non-exhaustive manner (less "flow" and more "static stretching"), each pose (asana) is held for 10-18 breaths (or 2-4 minutes) which results in a deeper, more thorough stretch. This class is less about muscular release, and more about supporting your Yin tissues-- tendons, ligaments, etc.

If you've been sitting at a desk all day, experience body aches due to lifestyle, life weights and don't stretch, have tension, been under stress, want an intentional meditation, are tired but need a good stretch? This class is perfect for you! This class is great for every body!

Ashtanga: Led Primary Series                                  Monday, 5:30pm- 6:45pm

                                                                                                             Thursday, 5:30pm-6:45pm

                                                                                                             

the Led Half Primary Series guides students half way through the Primary Series of Ashtanga. Focusing on the breath and utilizing drishti (gaze points) for each pose, this dynamic sequence will link breath and movement (Vinyasa Flows find their roots in the Ashtanga lineage). The Half Led Primary offers an excellent opportunity for any student to learn the poses and deepen their practice in a safe, mindful way by offering hands on, gentle assists and focused verbal cues.

 

More Info:

The Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a style of yoga codified and popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois during the 20th century which is often promoted as a modern-day form of classical Indian yoga. Ashtanga means eight limbs or branches, of which asana or physical yoga posture is merely one branch, breath or pranayama is another.

Usually an Ashtanga practice begins with five repetitions of Surya Namaskara A and five repetitions of Surya Namaskara B, followed by a standing sequence. Following this the practitioner begins one of six series, followed by what is called the closing sequence. There are  six series, and this class covers the 1st Series are:

  1. The Primary series: Yoga Chikitsa, Yoga for Health or Yoga TherapyThis is a powerful practice that tones, cleanses, detoxifies, and purifies the body. Make sure you're properly hydrated and have eaten a light meal at least 2 hours before the practice.

All of our teachers are professionally trained Aerialists and registered yoga teachers. They will teach you how to use the hammock to defy gravity (or use it to your advantage) to relax and restore, or realign and uplift. Each teacher has a different combination or sequence they will guide you through. Since we only have 6 hammocks, there is plenty of time to interact with our teachers one-on-one and get deeper into the practice both physically and mentally. **This is by far our most popular class and books up quickly! Be sure to book this class using our MINDBODY app or call us during business hours to schedule.

Our Aerial Hammocks are professionally installed and rigged. Each hammock can hold up to 5,000 pounds; 2,000 pounds with force. Our yoga is made for EVERY BODY!

Slow Flow                                                                                              Monday, 4:30pm                                                                                         

 

Our Slow Flow yoga class is designed to be for all levels of practitioners. Expect to move your body and perhaps build up a steady sweat (“slow” doesn’t necessarily mean easy!) while you synchronize your breath with each movement. This class will slow you down just the right amount to provide both a steadiness of mind and strength of body. It’s a sweet space where softness meets intensity; the perfect practice for someone who wants a step up from restorative or yin, without the full blown vigor of a heated or power flow class. Great for beginners who are just starting to learn the poses! Great for all levels of pratitioners as the postures can be modified or intensified.

Foundations in Flow (All Levels)                                             Currently Unavailable

                                                                 

This 60 minute, All Levels Unheated Flow class is typically taught in the Green Room. We have various teachers offering this unheated, vinyasa flow, basics class in their personal yoga style accounting for client/student preference and disposition to help guide the class. This class is half workshop, and half flow. FIF takes time to answer questions and explain the postures, transitions, etc. Every class begins with a short meditation to gather and build your breath for the practice. Throughout the class, all movement is synchronized with your breath as you are guided through postures. Mindfulness and body awareness are promoted and encouraged throughout each class. The structure of this class is a little slower than our Heated Flow classes; with time to turn your focus inward and make any necessary adjustments-- with the help of the instructor or on your own. It's a great way to practice the foundation of each pose (asana)-- and a great way to to deepen your personal practice!

Yang to Yin                                                                                    Currently unavailable

First 30 minutes is Flow, last 30 minutes is Yin.

This 60 minute class aims to build the heat and then slowly wind down into a slow flow, and finish with static, Yin-related, stretching. You'll become aware of the various tissues inside your body, and how your body responds to the supportive practices yoga provides. This class will warm you up quick, utilizing the mindful breath, and synchronize that breath with the asanas of the flow. This breath-&-asana connection helps to not only connect your body and mind but also detox and purify it. Teacher assisted stretching and adjustments are available-- with most taking place near the end of class. This is an energizing & refreshing class! It will inspire you, and put a little "pep in your step"!
