Namo Yoga is The Center’s signature yoga class. It was developed by Santosh Karmacharya as a challenging but safe class designed to balance the effects on our bodies of the 21st century lifestyle. These classes reactivate muscles that are working inefficiently and create movement patterns that support long-term health.
Vinyasa flow yoga classes smoothly transition from one pose to the next, creating a fluid rhythm. Emphasis is placed on the coordination of breathing with movement and include a balance of vigorous and restorative poses.
Hatha yoga is a traditional form of yoga with an emphasis on using poses to calm the mind. Hatha classes include a combination of standing, seated, and supine or prone poses, and often incorporate breathing and meditation.
Gentle Yoga classes are calming, peaceful, and deeply healing. These classes focus on relaxation so the muscles, bones, and organs can restore, rejuvenate, and recalibrate.
