Yoga is an ancient tradition grounded in the psychological philosophy of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali–yoga is ultimately a practice of the mind. It includes several elements of practice ranging from ethics to meditation. Our doors are open to all people who desire to learn about and practice yoga to enhance health and well-being. We suggest that those who are new to yoga practice or nervous about the physical side of practice consider attending Yoga Basics, any gentle yoga classes or scheduling a private session for assessment and introduction to the foundations of asana (postures) and pranayama (breath work) to begin, although that isn’t required.
It is our goal at Community Yoga to offer classes with a diverse selection of practices. We have qualified teachers, each with their own passion and gifts. Classes are all open level, which means the teacher will give you options to adjust the practice to meet your needs. In order to guide you to an intensity you are desiring, we are providing a soft guide to the intensity level of each class. This is just a reference for you to have as a guide for the pace the class will move. Please read our class descriptions and visit our schedule to find a class that works for you. We look forward to sharing the practice of yoga with you.
Gentle Yoga classes include Gentle Yoga, Classic Yoga, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Warm Stretch and Meditation. These all take out quick transitions between postures which make them easy to follow.
Hot Yoga classes include Hot Vinyasa and Hot Freedom Flow Yoga. These classes are in a heated room 90+ degrees and move dynamically to work your body and your mind.
Intermediate classes move more dynamically than gentle classes and transition between postures quickly. Intermediate classes include: Vinyasa, Slow Flow Vinyasa, and the Hot Classes. These classes can still be modified to meet your needs.
Specialized classes include Yoga for Runners and Yoga Strength Train. These are designed to focus on specific areas.
