We simply call Yoga by its name, moving away from the current trend to create brands. We teach postures (asana), flowing sequences (vinyasa), slow-moving or held postures (sthana), breathing (pranayama), and meditative practices.
If you are new to yoga please take our beginners classes until you are ready to safely practice in a non-beginners class. If you're unsure please email, call, or speak with one of the teachers about selecting a class that's right for you.
This class is perfect for people new to the practice of yoga as well as for more seasoned students who want to review the basics. You will strengthen the foundation of your practice and receive individualized attention as you gain flexibility, strength, and balance. In each class you will explore the specific alignment of asanas (poses) and asana sequences including standing and seated poses, backbends, and sun salutations. You will also explore the relationship of movement and breath.
Restorative yoga is a receptive practice in which your body is passive throughout the experience, weightlessly supported by props as your muscles extend and relax into subtle postures. We explore the energetic union of breath and long-held passive asanas. This class is open to yogis of all backgrounds, levels, sizes, and ages. No yoga experience is necessary; just come with the willingness to be still and present with yourself. Hands-on assisting will facilitate a deeper experience.
Yoga for Trees Classes
Each time you attend a Yoga for Trees class, we'll sponsor a tree being planted in the Shasta Trinity National Forest. Inhale deeply to improve your lungs and know you're inhaling cleaner air.
This total body workout is practice for life movement. Yes, you will condition the abdominals and spine while gaining flexibility in your limbs, but you will also learn the principles of centering, breath, control, precision, concentration and flow. Come improve your posture, grow a little taller and develop a balanced body. All levels welcome! Please wear comfortable, form fitting clothing with socks.
This class moves slower and is gentler than our traditional yoga class.
