Power Yoga

Adopted from the Ashtanga Vinyasa system, Power Yoga is a medium paced style of yoga that opens the body and mind through movement. The vinyasa is a series of poses that keep students moving between asana on different sides of the body. Vinyasa classes allow for students to "flow" from one pose to the next without stopping breath or focus. Students are encouraged to integrate intention, breath, movement, awareness, and focus with alignment and asana. Classes will include different postures each time allowing teachers to add their creative flair and expertise to the sequences. Try not to get too overwhelmed by the description if you are new to yoga. This style of class is meant for athletic bodies that are ready to integrate yoga into their current curriculum. Give the class a try if you're looking to add some change and fluidity to your life and yoga practice. 


Rocket Yoga

The Rocket Yoga sequences were created by Larry Schultz to renew "energy and vitality" in the body as well as stillness in the mind. This series of postures was modified from the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Primary and Secondary Series taught to Larry by senior guru, Pattabhi Jois. Coined "The Rocket" by one of Larry's many students, Bob Weir of The Grateful Dead, the practice in design and effect was noted to "get you there faster." By harnessing the accessible postures within the physically intricate Ashtanga Yoga series, Larry created a class and lifestyle that is best put as pragmatic. Students are allowed to take the modifications their bodies call for when in the basic postures; often you will see two Rocket students with wildly different practices, based on level of experience, knowledge, or style, exploring the body's capabilities with the same amount of focus in the same class.


Vinyasa Yoga

The vinyasa is a series of poses that keep students moving between asana on different sides of the body. Vinyasa classes allow for students to "flow" from one pose to the next without stopping breath or focus. Students are encouraged to integrate intention, breath, movement, awareness, and focus with alignment and asana. Classes will include different postures each time allowing teachers to add their creative flair and expertise to the sequences. Vinyasa yoga classes are great for Beginner to Intermediate students.
