Block Yoga for Strength

Change your perspective on using blocks in your yoga practice from helping you gain access to an asana to challenging your strength, mobility, and balance. We will use blocks to engage muscles in a different way through static holds and flowing movement, working to build strength and approach asanas with awareness of alignment. We will use blocks to experience asanas differently to allow the mind and body to achieve what the pose has to offer, as well as adding spice to your practice to stimulate the body in a different light.

Breath & Body Flow

Join Divya's Breath & Body Flow class, a Yoga practice for all levels, beginner friendly! In this practice will be offered techniques that may help you connect with your body and breath, tapping into the benevolent union between the two, allowing you to fully feel the power in every cell of the body and every breath that Life offers you. As you will be verbally guided from asana to asana, you will also be encouraged to flow freely as the body wants within the postures you will be offered. This is where you can can claim your practice and listen to your body more for ALL body's are different. A space of acceptance will be held for you to explore with no judgment or comparing for you are a unique individual. We will work on finding ways to get into stagnant areas to release unwanted blockages and create space for energy to flow in the body through working with flexibility, strength, balance, stillness, and breath. Soft sound healing, essential oils, and guided meditation and visualization will be present throughout the Yoga practice to deepen your journey within as you retreat on the mat.

Body Prayer Yoga

Body Prayer Yoga.
So much of our lives is spent in war with ourselves that this class was designed to get us back to aligning with the good we desire! Let’s sooth our nervous system, take charge of our thoughts, move the body and breathe nourishingly as we meet ourselves in this higher awareness with compassion and grace. This is using our bodies as a form of prayer to feel within. Using a mix of hatha and vinyasa style asanas and flows, we will work towards a peak pose, at times may be at a faster pace, before coming down to integrate all the goodness from the physical practice to take into our daily lives. This is practice for how we truly change body, mind, and Spirit! All levels encouraged!

Creative Vinyasa Flow

Unifying body, soul and mind by building physical and mental strength as you flow in this unique asana experience and drawing in the breath as your inner source of power. The yoga sequence includes all of the various groups of poses, focusing on equal parts strength, flexibility and balance, as well as moving the spine in all directions (flexion, extension, side bending and twists). When we follow the basic template for a balanced sequence (opening, warm-ups, standing poses, inversions, backbends, twists, forward folds, and closing postures ending with savasana) we can easily swap out one pose for another in the same category, keeping things simple and interesting. Also in this class choosing a theme or bhavana (feeling) in the sequence, incorporating poses or groups of poses that help students to embody and experience the feeling, attitude and/or lesson your imparting. It could be "gratitude" and sequence could focus on the gentle lift of the chest and expansion of the torso moving toward heart-opening poses. Always incorporating centering of the breath in between of asana’s, some relaxing moves and dance elements. Themes are endless, no limits or boundaries in yoga!

Devotional Practice

Join Gina for sacred practices of transformation
Ahava means love that is in service to experience union with the Divine. In these evening sessions, we’ll explore devotional practice. To practice with the intention of connecting to Spirit, we’ll be working with our bodies in
alignment with the elements & cycles & rhythms of nature
Empower yourself with practices that have been passed down through Mystery Schools for ages with the intent to purify the body vessel from low, stagnant or heavy energies as well as activate us through varied forms of breath-work, yoga poses, dance, chanting, drumming, mantra & light language. Awaken and inspire your inner healer through guided self healing massage & essential oil anointing ritual. There is a heavy emphasis on practices of womb technology which is significant to both men & women for healing & creating.

Embodied Soul Flow

Slow, mindful movement (with modern jams) that awakens the precious body temple to brilliant transformation, incorporating the combination of strength through fierce grace, flexibility through grounded self-love and alignment through radiant harmony. This Hatha Yoga class is infused with deep spiritual principles to marry the consciousness of the body to the consciousness of the soul. As we work to embody the consciousness of the soul within our physical vessel, we experience shifts in our reality as the Universe reconfigures itself to mirror back to us our new higher vibration through the process of soul magnetism. It is through this higher vibration, or increase in frequency, that we gain access to quantum possibilities that were not previously available. Nikola Tesla said, "If you want to understand the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration." As we access the quantum field of possibilities, we expand our consciousness creating a magnetic echo in our reality through newly empowered choices we make. Each class is unique and will work with the collective energy of the students attending to increase awareness and achieve transformation through the radical shifting of any mental, emotional, physical and spiritual limitations as well as energetic interference. Working on all levels and layers, this class will empower you to step ferociously into your divine inheritance, embrace your wild holy nature as an embodied, multi-dimensional soul and liberate your psyche from old paradigms rooted in lack, control, victimization, manipulation, oppression and mind imprisonment. During this class, we will purify our bodies, free our minds and dance to the rhythm of our soul!

Guided Vinyasa Flow

Join Eva for Guided Vinyasa Flow. After she verbally guides you through a sequence that she thoughtfully designed, you will be encouraged to let go of doubts and fears and flow at your own pace with acceptance, love and understanding.
Students become more conscious and aware of their breath, that guides the body through series of postures! The mind finally settles, giving them the freedom to embrace and love their own unique selves.
“With self acceptance and self love we finally find peace”!
That’s our journey.

Hatha Yoga

Come as you are and leave as you want to be. Join Diane for a breath and alignment based practice offering guided poses with modifications for both beginners and seasoned yogis alike. A well-rounded practice that begins with slowly opening the body and calming the mind and progressing to a series of grounding, balancing and gentle strengthening postures. Your practice ends in a blissful Savasana for deep relaxation.

Mindful Soul Flow

Journey within and infuse mindfulness body awareness and self care in a series of gently integrated asana. Not only will you flow gently but we will also explore thyself by going from that space of stillness to cardio and back to stillness, tuning you in to self discovery and truth. Yoga is a science of the heart and this class will bring you into balance with yours. Prepare to bend mind, body, heart, and breath, with pranayama, mantra, asana, and stillness.

Morning Sadhana: Kundalini Yoga

In Kundalini Yoga, we focus on tuning into and tuning up the energetic body/the chakras - as well as the nervous system for the purpose of bringing the body and mind into balance and coherence so that we can attune ourselves to the clarity, beauty and uniqueness of the Soul. Be open to all the unique ways that this can show up as we strip the layers of conditioning and programing.

Ultimately, we do Kundalini Yoga not to get anything but to free ourselves from all that we're not so we can recognize our unique gifts and get closer to our purpose on this Earth. It is a form of self study, discipline and recognition.

Sadhana means daily spiritual practice that is typically done before the golden hours of the sunrise when the world is still quiet (between 4-7am). This is when melatonin levels in the pineal glad are still high making us susceptible to changing brain wave patters and are more easily able to go into deeper meditative states. But ultimately, doing Sadhana at any time of the day or night will benefit you. This practice can be done alone or in a group.

Sadhana with Divya will include offerings in the realm of exercise, kriya, pranayama, meditation, mantra, mudra, music, live sound healing & deep relaxation. No previous experience is needed for you to attain results with your very first class.

Sadhana is a time when we offer our spiritual efforts in collapsing duality and recognizing oneness/wholeness/connection between all things around us and within each any every one of us. It is a practice where you can get to know yourself beyond the form, beyond judgement and expectations and clear your own consciousness so you can merge with the infinity within you.

If you commit weekly, you will start to notice that this practice will help you take better control of your life and bring you closer to your Divine path as your heart becomes fearless, open and ready to give and receive!

Morning Sadhana: Kundalini Yoga will be offered EVERY Wednesday from 5:30am SHARP to about 7:30/7:45am.

As usual, the first Wednesday of the month Kundalini will still be FREE!

As you greet the Sun with me every Wednesday morning, beautiful things will happen....

Yin Yoga 

Set in a calm and meditative space this yoga class is an opportunity for you to move deeper into your breath and body and awaken your profound self-acceptance by balancing mindful meditation and deep stretching. You will use the postures to get into your body through deep stretches of your connective tissue by applying slow and steady stress to your ligaments. This helps maintain your ligaments' elasticity which we often lose as we age. Yin class does not involve any muscular engagement and it is great for students of all levels.

Yoga Nidra for Emotional Healing

Yoga Nidra - Yogic Sleep is one of the most powerful tools that can be used to provide a person with a deep sense of calmness, peace and relaxation. The transcending experience that is Yoga Nidra guides you into a very deep state of relaxation where we can get out of our own way and allow healing to take place. Best part is that it requires little to no physical activity.


Transformative benefits are gained from the regular practice of this ancient method of meditation - on a mental, physical, emotional and spiritual level. Everyone deals with stressors in their lives and can use a safe space and technique to relax and unwind. Some of these stressors can linger for days, months and even years. To prevent mental, physical, emotional and/or spiritual damage that tend to accompany these stressors life throw at us, learning to routinely practice Yoga Nidra truly is something everyone can profoundly benefit from learning.
