Yoga Flow - Tuesdays @ 12-1pm & Thursdays @10:30-11am
With an updated and contemporary approach to the practice of Vinyasa Yoga Asana (postures), our Yoga Flow format’s been developed with a foundation based in modern biomechanics and exercise science. You can expect to link breath with movement, build warmth and awareness in your body, and refine your own personalized mindfulness practice, while exploring some of the “why” behind the poses. Each class is curated specifically for those present in the space, creating an approachable and accessible dynamic amongst complete beginners and experienced practitioners alike. All levels welcome, no experience required. (Mat required)
Movement & Mobility - Tuesdays @ 10:30-11am & Thursdays @ 12-1pm
Our Movement & Mobility format is a hybrid practice that incorporates various forms of movement. Utilizing methodology inspired by the likes of Ido Portal, Fighting Monkey, MovNat, and Functional Range Conditioning (no idea what any of that is? Don’t worry, we’ll explain it to you!), you’ll find yourself immersed in an interactive community experience that encourages group exploration. You can expect to spend time both on and off of your mat, frequently working directly with others in class. Active mobility work, natural movement patterns, and an emphasis on play are the foundational pillars of this unique class offering. All levels welcome, no experience required. (Mat required)

Tuesday March 12th @ 8-9pm
What allows you to stand tall? You might be surprised to learn that we do not stand upright due to a rigid skeleton with muscles and ligaments attached. Our bones actually float in a myofascial matrix and we stand tall thanks to a delicate blend of tensile and compressive forces called Tensegrity.
In this pop up class, we’ll explore that very concept by using therabands, blocks and the wall as feedback mechanisms to help feel, internalize and grow the principle of tensegrity throughout the body. We’ll work on radiating out from within while engaging opposing actions and see how far we can stretch our internal consciousness. Great for building strength and control throughout your entire joint range of motion. Join us for this unique and intelligent approach to better understanding the wide scope of your body, and how we function as fluid and integrated organisms.
Tuesday April 2nd @ 8-9pm
FRC for the Shoulder Joint Complex
This one hour class is ALL about increasing mobility for the shoulder joint using FRC (Functional Range Conditioning) principals. We’ll explore your active and passive ROM (range of motion) and learn how to increase both for a strong stable shoulder girdle.
You’ll get loads of info on proper shoulder mechanics and many stretches, strengtheners and drills you can take with you to incorporate into life as needed!
