Yoga Class Single Class Pass is  $15, Tai Chi is $10, Packages Available with Each Instructor

Sunday mornings are precious. It’s the last day of the weekend before the work week resumes and sometimes it can be difficult to fully enjoy our Sundays because the inevitable ‘Sunday Blues’ set in. This grounding, energetic, beginner-friendly flow will help you live in the moment while also building strength, stamina, flexibility and mindfulness. The style of this class will be a mix of Vinyasa and Hatha yoga. The Sanskrit word, Vinyasa, means to arrange in a particular/special way. This means there will be a continuous flow between each pose/movement that synchronizes with the breath. Hatha yoga (also referred to as flow yoga) is a bit slower paced than Vinyasa; there will be a steady flow between poses and some poses will be held for approximately 5 breaths. The class will end with a cool down sequence and savasana.

CHAKRADANCE™ is a well-being movement practice. It uses spontaneous dance, to specific chakra-resonant music, for the purpose of healing and re-tuning your whole energy system.

The purpose of Chakradance is simple, if ambitious: to help you to more fully embody your soul.

At the heart of Chakradance is the music. For all of us, the seven major chakras are the energetic gateways through which body, mind and spirit come together, literally embodying the soul.

In Chakradance classes and courses, each of these seven chakras has its own unique body of wonderfully danceable music, resonating to its own specific vibrational frequencies.

On one level, Chakradance can be experienced as a joyful affirmation of who you truly are. Using spontaneous dance, creativity and your imagination, it leads to an awakening, a discovery of your true self.

But at a deeper level, Chakradance is also about healing and balance. By surrendering to the music of each chakra, we dance from the inside out and find ourselves awakening and healing ancient hurts; expressing – often for the first time – long-blocked emotions; and opening ourselves up to levels of spiritual connection higher than we ever thought possible.

This is what we mean when we describe Chakradance™ as “rhythm for your soul”.

Think of it as a ‘dynamic moving meditation to music’… or as ‘the musical sister of yoga’ (without the set-piece poses or asanas).

There is no right or wrong way to move your body. It’s a journey of self-discovery. Each chakra is explored through specific music, guided imagery and your own free, improvised dance, done in a candle-lit space with your eyes softly closed. This begins to activate inner experiences.

It’s almost like entering into a waking dream. You may see images in your mind’s eye while you are dancing or gain insights. You may also experience feelings, emotions or physical sensations. Most classes conclude with participants creating a personal mandala artwork, to help ‘anchor’ their experience and for their own personal use in reflecting on the class in the following days.

Chakradance puts you in touch with the sacred within yourself. It helps you re-connect with your own soul, unique and beautiful. Dancing the seven chakras is like dancing into seven different worlds, seven different facets of your whole self, each with their own lessons, meanings and stories. As a practice, it helps you to feel more balanced, more joyful, and to radiate your own true colors out into the world.

During each session, the room will be dimly lit with candles (and lamps) to promote relaxation. Sessions will begin with a relaxing meditation and prānāyāma (breathing exercise) to relax the mind. Relaxing the mind can be tricky, but once the mind relaxes, the body follows. Once the mind and body relax, you will rest in yin and restorative yoga poses that are supported by yoga props (bolsters, blocks, blankets, and more). Each pose will be held for approximately 5-7 minutes each. To conclude each class, Kalee will softly awaken you with the calming sound of her harmonium and Tibetan singing bowl.

Dantayama classes and workshops are designed to benefit the novice or beginning student as well as the more advanced or experienced students. The premise of this style of yoga, Dantayama Yoga, is “Support equals Release”. All props, including chairs, blankets, mats, blocks, straps and knee pads are provided for your convenience. We utilize these props to promote deep release and deep relaxation. When muscles are offered support, there is no longer a need to strain, and the natural effect is, the musculature will elongate and soften.

Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced yogi, it’s always good to go back to the basics of yoga. This beginner-style class will begin with a meditation followed by various yoga poses. In vinyasa classes it can be difficult to adjust and fully express yoga poses because the flow of the class is at the rate of 1 breath per movement. In Back to the Basics, Kalee will break down poses, with the use of props, that one will likely come across in other yoga classes including, but not limited to: mountain pose (tādasana), standing forward fold (uttānasana), half-lift (ardha uttānasana), four-limbed staff pose (chaturānga dandāsana), upward facing dog (urdhva muka svanāsana), downward facing dog (adho muka svanāsana), warriors 1-3 (virabhadrāsana I-III).

Flow yoga class starts with a meditation to set an intention and connect with your inner sanctuary. The flow practice emphasizes the sequential movement between postures, coordinated with and guided by deliberate breath, these movements become a moving meditation. Each class energetically differs making space to create strength, freedom and fluidity in the body and mind. Flow practice is for all levels. Each class ends with stillness and an invitation to take the peaceful and calm energy generated on the mat into our community.

“Physical and mental toxins create stiffness and tension. Anything that makes us stiff can also break us. Only if we are supple will we never break…What we need is the strength of steel, but with steel’s flexibility–not like crude iron, which is very strong and hard but breaks. The body must be so supple it can bend anyway you want it to. Such a body will be healthy and tension-free.” ~The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: Sri Swami Satchidananda This class is a mix of Yin Yoga and Mobility exercises: Yin yoga poses are held for approximately 2-5 minutes each to stretch the fascia*. This is also a great opportunity to quiet the mind before a busy day. Mobility exercises help lubricate the joints and massage out aches. This is a good way to wake up the body in preparation for the day. 

Want to have some fun getting your but kicked in yoga? Lets take out time setting up the proper alignment and use some hand weights to give our muscles a little extra challenge without being too hard on the joints. After all we only have one body, lets create a stable one and care for it so it doesn’t wear out too quickly;) We will use some music for motivation. There will be time for deep stretching followed by relaxation/ short meditation at the end to reset, recharge and renew.

This class is perfect for beginners or those who would like more time and support gettinging to poses and an overall slower pace. We will focus on proper alignment, breath work, stress relief, mobility and gentle stretching. After yoga poses are complete we finish with a guided relaxation and short meditation.

For virtually everyone, this pandemic has increased our level of intensity, and so we’ve had to expand our tolerance. For some of us it is the intensity of family life, with a massive reduction in outside activities, or perhaps it’s the intensity of being suddenly alone all the time if you live by yourself and are now working from home, or even the extreme intensity of being called to duty on the frontlines as a healthcare provider. There is less variety available for entertainment and activities to discharge and recharge, fewer venues, and less access to community. We are missing the freedom of stopping by a friend’s place, the closeness of hugs hello and goodbye, the comfort of face-to-face interactions, and the connection of being able to see our community unobscured by masks. Life has changed. We’ve lost our social skills, our relationships are under high pressure as our stress levels continue to rise, and the world will likely not return to the old normal. We need some new skills for the new normal, and we need some respite from all the intensity. Join us for this weekly opportunity to up your self-care game.

This type of yoga is often referred to as ‘flow yoga’. During this Hatha flow you will move through a series of poses and hold them for approximately 5 breaths each (unlike Vinyasa yoga, which is 1 breath per movement). Although the pace of this class is slower, holding these particular poses longer will build strength, balance, and mindfulness while keeping the body supple.
