LOTUS YOGA CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Beginner Yoga with Tara Smith- This gentle flow class will introduce proper alignment of poses while creating space to twist a little deeper, allowing you the option to bring awareness to places that no longer serve you.  This class will also incorporate pranayama and meditation in the midst of the calming hour.


Free Spirit Yoga [Hatha] with Ara Ritrovato - A creative and spiritual flow with a mindful and loving approach. This class includes many therapeutic and healing principles including asanas, chakras, meditation, mudras, and chanting. The intention behind this class is to give attention to you, the practitioner, by creating a nurturing space to have fun, challenge yourself, rest, and connect. All levels are welcome.


Vinyasa Flow with Pamela Jones  - A fluid practice incorporating pranayama and meditation and deep breath awareness to facilitate movement through asanas. We’ll take time to warm up and move throughout the practice with attention to form and alignment. Build strength, balance and calm focus on and off the mat.


Vinyasa Flow with Delaney Rives - This class is designed to allow students of varying levels and experiences to explore the benefits of a yoga practice. In flowing through poses, students gain strength, balance and greater control over their bodies as well as increased confidence as they notice their practice change and grow. Besides the physical benefits, this class aims to provide students the space to experience the psychological benefits of yoga as well, including a sense of calm and peace accompanied by feelings of empowerment and self-love.

 Whole-Being Yogawith Pamela Jones(75 min) -   Whole: something that is complete within itself; all of something; Being: the nature or essence of a person; Yoga: to unite or join; union of self with the Supreme Being.

Together, through movement and relaxation, we will explore the practice of body, breath, and mind to drop more fully into the wholeness of who you already are. The practice will include bodily asanas, some pranayama, and meditation.  There are no prerequisites other than the desire to bodily relax more fully into the nature of your own wholeness. 


Yoga Nidra with Dave Cass - Translated from "uniting sleep", yoga nidra classes involve gentle movement followed by an in-depth guided meditation. Yoga Nidra helps students get out of their busy physical and mental states to trigger delta wave sleep, which is known to be the most psychologically restorative.
