*Recommended for Beginners
Gentle indicates the class is not vigorous, but slow and soothing, perfect for those wanting a more relaxed and softer practice. Also excellent for beginners, the elderly, and pregnant women.
Power indicates a vigorous practice that will challenge and energize you with its focus on building strength and concentration as you flow through powerful, flowing sequences. This type of class is meant to challenge you and your existing practice, make you sweat, have some fun, and try and inversion (or three!). Not recommended for beginners who do not have a basic knowledge of yoga postures.
Warm classes allow the body’s tissues to soften more deeply, as the room is kept between 80-89 degrees.
Hot classes involve a dynamic and challenging practice in a room heated to 90 degrees or above. You will sweat, so please bring your own mat, water bottle, and towel. First time students are discouraged from attending HOT classes, as they tend to be fast-paced, and are meant for those already familiar with basic postures.
