Empower Your Mind

Power Flow

In this fast-paced flowing class, strength, flexibility and stamina are all emphasized.  This is a vigorous style of yoga where you can expect a great cardiovascular and strength building practice combined with breath work.

Vinyasa

This class guides you through a series of postures that help build strength, flexibility, and mental focus. We flow from one pose to another linking the breath with movement.  Modifications are given throughout the practice allowing everyone to work at his/her own ability and comfort level.  It is a moderately active, energetic and fun style of yoga. This class will leave you feeling strong and invigorated!

Yin

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with poses held for 2-10 minutes supported by props.  The poses apply moderate stress to the deep connective tissues of the body with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints, improving flexibility and releasing blockages in the energetic body.  A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal interconnection.  Breath focus & body awareness are heightened as you work into a meditative state. This is a great compliment to the more vigorous classes.

Yin-Yang Yoga

Yin Yang Yoga blends two styles of yoga, Yin and Yang, into one practice, bringing together the benefits of passively holding poses with more dynamic sequences and standing postures. Yin Yoga is a slower practice where poses are passively held for longer, working on the deep, dense (Yin) connective tissues and joints in the body. Yang Yoga, in contrast, refers to a more active practice working on the (Yang) muscles and blood flow, building strength, stamina and flexibility.

Slow Flow in Dutch

This is a gentle version of vinyasa flow class, which links breath with body movement. It leads the blood and lymph to flow fluidly throughout the whole body and is a great way to relax your mind and body. This style will help you find the space between poses while still retaining the gentle rhythm of a flow yoga class.

Stretch & Relax in Dutch

Starting with warming up your body, we focus on stretching our body for flexibility, and to release the tension from your body and mind. It helps to calm and restore the body and mind for the rest of the day.
