Build functional strength. What to expect: Core classes offer an opportunity to build strength. Using props, you'll explore unique ways to engage the muscles that make up the core.

What does it mean to release a muscle? Release is a slow-moving practice that offers the opportunity to knead & soothe grippy muscles, by way of self-massage and conscious movement. What to expect: With the use of a dense rubber ball, you'll apply sustained pressure & friction to encourage circulation and freer movement. With the use of props (like blocks, straps & the wall) we'll bend, bind, and stretch. We recommend wearing a tank top & shorts for skin to prop contact (this contact will allow for greater manipulation of fascia). Who it's for: Release classes are enjoyed by practitioners who crave slow & intense movement. This class is also great for runners, cyclists, & strength-training enthusiasts. Classes are inspired by the studio's Pose of the Month. This 60-minute, Level 2 class is held at 85°F.
Growing your yoga practice doesn't require that you master fast-paced flows or pretzel-like postures. Instead, you might focus on subtle movements that require lots of control. What to expect: With the use of props & the wall, this class explores less obvious structural components of postures, resulting in gain of strength, stability and useful flexibility. The class often culminates with the practice of an arm balance or inverting posture. The pace of this practice varies class-to-class. Who it's for: Alignment classes are appropriate for students with an existing yoga practice, who understand their strengths and limitation. Alignment classes do not include music.
