Inspired Hatha Yoga

This class sources its inspiration from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the 8-limbs of Yoga, Iyengar’s Light on Yoga, Fundamentals of Yoga and other classic yoga philosophy texts.  This class is alignment-based hatha yoga, infused with inspiration, breathwork, and deliberate meditation, mantra and yin poses – practice at slower pace, enjoy your time on the mat, and leave feeling inspired.

Shakti Vinyasa

This class follows a moving, flowing vinyasa-style format.  Expect to sweat and enjoy a workout while you move on your mat. You will leave class with a glow.

Group Practice

The “teacher” becomes part of the collective in this minimally-led practice session, where everyone, including the teacher, rolls out their mat and practices together.  Format changes week to week, but expect light-hearted explorations into challenging poses and unexpected sequences that play with the edge and dance us into new territory.

Sunset Slowdown Restorative

A deeply relaxing way to unwind, relieves physical and mental stress, and prepare for restful sleep. Luxuriate in 5-7 gentle postures, held for 5-10 minutes each, using props to allow the body to feel totally supported and able to release and mend. Stretches of the connective tissue, with emphasis on the spine, hips, neck and shoulders, promote mobility and pain management, while a meditative state calms the mind and heart.

Yoga for Athletes 

Consider this class a “tune-up” for the over-worked and under-stretched muscles that athletes use in all sports. This class focuses on alignment in each posture and will touch those hard to reach areas of your entire body.

Family Yoga

An easy-going space where parents and care-takers can practice yoga with their children of all ages.  Everyone welcome!

YogaHike

This class meets off-site.  Sign up online, meet at a trail head and go for a lead hike with a focus on mindfulness and breath, then take a yoga stretch break before returning to the trailhead.  Its hiking! Its Yoga!  It’s a YogaHike!

Agni Hotra

Fire ceremony for cleansing and empowering the spirit on an emotional, spiritual, global, and cosmic level.  Mantra & Meditation to spark a fire in the heart and illuminate the world from the inside out.

Thriver Yoga

Gentle yoga for women at any stage of cancer survival.

Community Class

This class is led by a revolving cast of Yoga Illumined teachers.  Each teacher will lead class in their on style and authentic voice. Come with an open heart and expect to fall in love with your practice from a fresh and unique perspective every time.
