Mysore classes are Ashtanga Yoga Classes taught in the “Mysore-style” which is the traditional style practiced in Mysore India. This is the method where students are “met” by teachers as individuals, and the Ashtanga practice is tailored through a series of therapeutic postures linked with breathe. This way it is like the student is having a private lesson just for them, in a group setting. Mysore classes are for everyone, regardless of age or physical ability. You just need devotion, have curiosity to learn and the dedication to show up with no expectations. Beginners will be taught at their pace.

Yoga nidra is a conscious sleep based guided meditation practice. You will experience this powerful practice laying down and are encouraged to bring any props (eye pillow, head pillow, blanket) to assist the body in feeling totally supported and comfortable. You will be guided through intention setting, breath exercises, body awareness and other tools designed to put the physical and mental body in a deep state of relaxation so that profound healing and energetic shifts can take place. In yoga nidra you enter a state of non-doing and in this restorative state mental, physical and emotional healing takes place. Yoga nidra has shown to be beneficial in managing stress, releasing excess tension, helping with anxiety, depression, insomnia and PTSD.

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time—for beginners, it may range from 45 seconds to two minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more.
Every meditator knows the pain of stiff knees and an aching back. By stretching the connective tissue, Yin Yoga conditions you to sit longer—and more comfortably.
