Yoga Hot Spot & COVID-19 – Update
While many things have changed, YOGA remains the same. It is a powerful tool to transform your body, your mind…and your heart. The greatest teacher IS and ALWAYS will be the practice itself. All you have to do is show up. If you are not up for practicing right now, we hope you can feel the love we are sending out to you and your families.
~LOVE GROWS HERE~ ❤️

-Please continue to SIGN UP for classes in-person or zoom. We’re not taking walk-ins at this time to ensure our lobby is safe and social distancing guidelines are followed.
-Please wear mask at all times in and around the studio, unless you are on your mat.
-The doors will open 15 minutes before class, and all students need to leave 15 minutes after. This will be enforced so that we can tend to the cleaning protocol. There will be no congregating in the lobby before or after class. These connections and social interactions are so important to us, but at this time we ask you to leave promptly after class to keep everyone safe and the studio open.
-We have additional protocol for cleaning and sanitizing daily and between classes.
-Please limit bathroom use.
-Together we will build our strength and immunity to stand against any virus, hate, or fear.

Our Current Classes
A traditional all-level class offering balance of breath (pranayama), posture (asana), and meditation (dyana), with the goal of bringing about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind. The practice is performed in specific order and is focused on the classic 26 postures, building strength, balance, and flexibility.
An ambitious yoga class that will have you moving, breathing, and sweating. Sequences focus on building strength and flexibility in the mind, body, and spirit and include sun salutations, balancing, back bending, and inversions.
A warm, restorative class performed on the mat with gentle lighting, music, and instruction promoting relaxation and rejuvenation. Long-held stretching poses work deep connective tissue, ligaments, tendons, and joints. A great compliment to other forms of yoga or the rigors of daily life.
This is a non-heated class. It is the original Vinyasa style of yoga. It is the root of all breath-based classes. There is a coordinated sequence of Vinyasa (counts) synchronized with the breath, with Sun Salutations, Standing and Seated postures. The ultimate purpose of the Ashtanga practice is purification of the body and mind. By moving quickly and powerfully, and breathing deeply you will begin to evolve past the asana and tap into what is known as “a state of yoga”. Pattabhi Jois said “Just do your practice and all is coming”.

What do I wear?
- Shorts that are above the knee or yoga pants.
- Typical yoga tops, sports bra.
- Nylon shorts, yoga shorts or board shorts and t-shirt

What do I bring to my first class?
- You’ll need a large towel, yoga mat, and a bottle of water. If you forget we have all three for rent or purchase.
- Come to class with a positive, open attitude.
- A positive outlook does wonders for your yoga practice. As a newcomer you have the advantage of an unbiased eager perspective.
What about the heat?
It is hot, so be sure to come to class well hydrated. If you are feeling dizzy, just lay down until you are feeling better. Its best if you do not leave the room so that you do not distract others during their practice.
