Gentle Flow (or Slow Flow) invites you to experience the fluidity of a Vinyasa class without being pushed beyond your physical limits. Poses are choreographed to synchronize your movement with your breath, but a Modified Sun Salutation allows you to flow without having to transition from full-standing to low-plank. Great for those who want to flow at a softer pace.
Vinyasa classes are known for their fluid, intentional and dance-like quality. Your breath synchronizes with your movement as you flow from one pose to another. This tends to be a more vigorous and sweat-inducing class, since poses are often linked through Full Sun Salutations that keep your body warmed up. Great for those who love a challenge.
Chair yoga is a gentle practice that adapts hatha yoga poses to be embodied while seated in a chair or while standing using the chair for support.

Hatha is a general term that encompasses all forms of modern yoga that teach physical postures. As a style, a hatha yoga class is slow-paced, gentle and instructive. There’s time to really explore the poses since they are held for a few breaths. Great for beginners and all who want to develop alignment, strength and flexibility.

Restorative yoga helps you sink into deep relaxation. Bolsters, blocks, blankets and cushions are strategically used to prop and support the body in poses that are held over the course of several minutes to encourage passive stretching. Great for stress release, meditation and sleep preparation.
