Class Descriptions

We offer a variety of classes to meet your needs, and we encourage you to find options that inspire, challenge, and feel good to you. If you need any assistance, please feel free to ask. Our instructors encourage you to listen to your inner teacher above all and to have fun! Since we believe that individuals of all ages can benefit from yoga, we allow older children (ages 12 & up) to join our adult classes, if parents feel it is suitable.

Adult Yoga

Active Yoga

A slightly more challenging a rigorous flow practice, with the intention to build strength in both mind and body. In this practice, we link breath with movement to generate heat from within our bodies, play around with more advanced poses to challenge our minds and let go of fears and expectations. Each student creates his/ her own practice and chooses options that feel good, so yogis of all levels are welcome. This is a fun and energetic class for anyone who is interested in expanding outside of his/ her comfort zone. 

Gentle Yoga

Rather than trying to fit the body into all of the traditional yoga poses, this class is an exploration of functional movement. We will work on breath awareness, joint range of motion, balance, strength, and flexibility of body & mind. Each class will offer time for movement, meditation, breathing techniques (pranayama), and may include some restorative yoga postures. This class is well-suited to those who want to move at a slower pace, those who want to gain more body awareness, or those who may already have some mobility restrictions. Open to all!

Inner Power Hour

You can never be any more perfect than you are right here, in this very moment. This is your hour to relax and rejuvenate and remember your worth through this gentle and calming class. This is a great class to take as a Parent/Teen pair, to come with a friend, or to come alone and meet new friends! Each class will have warm herbal tea awaiting you paired with chocolate. No yoga experience necessary! *A mini face massage will be offered during savasana.

Integrative Hatha Flow

This Sunday morning class dives deep into the tension held in the body to release and expand. Hatha inspired, this slow flow class incorporates Vinyasa, Kundalini, and deep breathing techniques to achieve a state of relief and ease in the body and mind.

Open Level Flow

Suitable for beginners and all levels. In this class, we link a series of poses together using our breath, and each participant is encouraged to go at his or her own pace, depending on fitness level and individual needs. We offer modifications (for beginners) and challenges (for more advanced yogis) to each flow series, in an effort to meet the needs of all individuals in the class. Our classes focus on relaxation, strengthening muscles, spinal alignment and increasing flexibility.

Prenatal Yoga

We offer mothers a quiet place to turn their focus inward and bond with their child, while strengthening their bodies and utilizing their breath (preparing for birth). Research shows many benefits of participating in prenatal yoga, both for mom and baby, including increased comfort, decrease in premature births, and improved health for both mom and baby. These classes offer women time to be comfortable with the changes in their bodies and bond with other expectant mothers. This class is suitable for women who have prior yoga experience, as well as beginners. Women can participate as early or as late in pregnancy as desired, depending on comfort level. Nora also offers private couple’s prenatal sessions and periodic group classes for both mom and partner.

Restorative Yoga

This class begins with a gentle warm-up to get the spine moving. The rest of the poses practiced are passive (many lying down) & fully supported with props, such as blocks, blankets, and bolsters. The aim is to help facilitate release of habitually held tension and encourage deep bodily relaxation through focus on the breath. This is an ideal class for anyone who feels overwhelmed with stress, insomnia, or chronic pain. It’s also a wonderful balance to a more active yoga practice. Open to all levels.

Slow Flow Vinyasa

Connect movement to breath as you work to balance stability & flexibility in the body in this more meditative version of a flow class. Some of the poses in this class will be held longer in order to find focus, maintain a consistent breathing practice, and build body awareness. Some yoga experience recommended.

Sunrise Flow

Begin your day by connecting with your breath and body to find a solid grounding from which the rest of your day will flow. In this all-levels class we bring movement to the body after a night’s rest to find space and fluidity. We flow through traditional yoga postures and find specific parts of the body to work on to relieve tension, find strength and flexibility, and ultimately achieve balance throughout the body. This class introduces breathing techniques and meditation to enhance one’s practice. All experience levels and body types are welcome in this early morning class. 

Yoga Basics

This is a class for those who are new to yoga or for those who just wish to cultivate a sense of ease in the body. We will ground and stabilize your body with some fundamental yoga poses (asanas), an introduction to breath work, and attention to proper alignment. In doing so, we hope to take time to enjoy what your body can do: move around, focus your attention, and breathe!

Yoga Foundations

This alignment focused class embodies the ideas and principles of B.K.S. Iyengar. This class offers a deeper look into the positioning of the body in each posture, with longer holds and a strong focus on the breath. Honing in one’s attention into the seemingly insignificant elements of each posture helps us to understand each part of the body and how it functions together as a whole. Dive into postures with confidence and security with the help of your instructor, props, and adjustments.
