POWER FLOW / VINYASA

YAM Power Flow classes are meant to be athletic and taught so that all levels can experience a great class. Cardio, strength, balance, and mindfulness are all emphasized while building flexibility. Teachers provide easy to follow verbal cues and modifications, so students don’t feel lost, while also providing options to intensify, allowing each student to find their edge. The whole body is cared for as the teachers touch on each muscle group. The studio is warmed to approximately 80 degrees.

ashtanga

Ashtanga Yoga is a form of vinyasa flow that follows a set sequence of postures synced with a specific breath count. This powerful sequence and use of breath helps to quiet the mind while the body builds heat! We will start with traditional sun salutations and move through a set sequence of standing postures. After standing, we move to seated postures consisting of forward folds, twists, and hip openers. The closing sequence contains a set of backbends, inversions meant to calm the nervous system, and deep breathing in lotus. While Ashtanga can be intimidating, this class is perfect for those wanting to learn and/or be challenged! It is a powerful practice you can make your own with modifications and easily see progress as your poses change over time.

DEEP STRETCH

A Class for All Levels which includes elements of intuitive luxurious flowing movement, Alignment Based Deep Stretch, Yin Yoga, and Restorative Yoga. Slow down and turn inward. Class is often focused/themed as we dive deep into releasing deep tension in the body and mind with props and breathwork. This class is a great way to improve flexibility, gain body awareness, reduce stress, improve concentration, relax and improve sleep.

gentle stretch

Gentle Yoga is accessible to those who are looking for a soft, nurturing, slow-paced, well supported, relaxing practice. Class is great for all levels including beginners or anyone looking for therapeutic benefits of yoga. While the intensity may be lower, the focus and commitment are high. Gentle yoga classes move at a steady pace, slowly cycling though a series of floor based or seated asanas weaving intentional and mindful breathing practices. Though you can expect a few standing poses, you’ll spend the majority of class on your mat.

She and her teachers incorporate classical Hatha yoga with Taoist theory, geometry, magic, mythology, metaphor, and imagination — in a practical framework designed to potentiate personal and communal well-being.
