All of Flow's classes & styles will guide you towards complete wellness, flexibility, strength, and balance. Our offerings range from classes that focus on a slower pace with longer-held poses exploring healthy alignment to more vigorous, athletic flowing styles. Below is a full description of our levels & offerings. The goal is not necessarily to think of progress in your practice by “moving up” to the next level. Instead, we encourage you to find options that inspire, challenge and feel good to you! If you need any assistance - our yoga advisers love to help! The majority of classes are ongoing, offered on a "drop-in" basis.
If you are dealing with any health conditions or injuries, we always recommend exploring our more alignment-focused classes or one to one lessons before venturing into flowing-style classes, so that you can learn which modifications will help keep your practice safe and enjoyable.
Here's a quick guide to help you find the class that's right for you...

Soothe your soul in this restorative class! Restorative yoga blends moving meditations and bliss producing restorative poses, typically done on the floor with lots of supportive props coupled with soothing music & aromatherapy to help the body release. Restorative poses are an important part of any long-term yoga practice: they recharge our energy reserves, heal the effects of stress, and bring our nervous systems into a more balanced state. This class will leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed and renewed. (All levels)
The practice of yin yoga provides the perfect balance to your active (yang) yoga practices and your busy life. Focusing on long-held floor poses combined with breath work and meditation, yin yoga goes beneath the superficial muscles to target the dense connective tissues of the body – often in the hips, pelvis, and low back – which are difficult to open and can result in both limited flexibility and stagnant energy. This deep practice is gentle, yet intense, helping students not only to open the body, but also to cultivate the ability to observe and stay with sensation. (All Levels)
Yoga Nidra is a class built around facilitating deep relaxation and rest. The practice consists of pranayama (breathing exercises), and guided meditation while students recline in a restorative position. Benefits include: releasing of three kinds of tension - muscular , emotional and mental; reduced stress, enhanced memory and learning capacity; awakened creativity; releasing repressed matter and increasing of willpower. (All levels)
While almost all styles of yoga offered here are hatha based, at Flow our hatha classes concentrate on the learning of traditional asana (postures), breathing, mindfulness, and listening to the body. Unlike our Vinyasa based classes in which students flow through poses connected by sun salutations, in a Hatha class, emphasis is placed on longer held poses, core strength, flexibility, balance & concentration. (Levels 1 and higher)
Vinyasa Flow, likened to a dynamic dance, is a practice where postures or asanas are connected through the breath for a transformative and balancing effect. Classes builds heat, endurance, flexibility, strength. The creative sequencing found in a vinyasa class is often built around surya namaskar (sun salutations) . Vinyasa (also called “Power Yoga”) as a form is always evolving and teachers weave together wisdom teachings, poetry and music that can inspire physical, energetic, mental, intuitive, and pure bliss states of consciousness. (Levels 1 and higher)
Mysore is a self-practice where students practice the Ashtanga series at their own pace as the teacher assists each student individually. The class is not led as a whole, but rather students are given personalized instruction according to their ability.
Expect attention to be given to your special needs and lots of hands on adjustments. A Mysore practice is ideal for new students, who need individual guidance, as well as advanced practitioners who are looking to deepen and expand their current Ashtanga practice. Mysore welcomes all levels.
The class structure is "open", meaning that you can enter the studio when you like and leave when your practice is complete within the scheduled time. Students are given a fixed order of postures. Beginners to Ashtanga Mysore should allow 45 minutes for their practice. After a while, your teacher will add more poses to your sequence and you will require more time. You do not have to memorized the primary series to take the class as the teacher is there to assist you in the learning. (Levels 1.5 and higher)
Flow Yoga Center is a Jivamukti Yoga Center affiliate. Jivamukti Yoga is a vigorously physical and intellectually stimulating vinyasa style of yoga and reintegrates the physical,philosophical and spiritual aspects of Yoga and explores yoga practice as a path to enlightenment. Classes consist of Vinyasa (flowing asana sequences), hands-on adjustments, Sanskrit chanting, philosophical teachings, uplifting music, meditation and deep relaxation. (Levels 1.5 and higher)

The wave of a class is created through cycles of effective and creative sequences (vinyasas) linked together through the breathwave. Every class is well-rounded : following the mandala of the body and asanas - to create whole body transformation of strength and fluidity, circulation and centering. (Levels 1 and higher)
Mysore is a self-practice where students practice the Ashtanga primary series at their own pace as the teacher assists each student individually. The class structure is "open", meaning you can enter the studio when you like and leave when your practice is complete (within the scheduled class time). Beginners to Ashtanga Mysore should allow at least 45 minutes for their practice. Over time, your teacher will add more poses to your sequence so it will require more time. To keep with tradition, always check the online schedule as we will not practice on full or new moon days. You do not need to memorize the Astanga primary series to take this class as the teacher is there to assist you in learning it, but we recommend taking the led Ashtanga class a few times before trying Mysore!
