Our Yoga Classes
All classes are designed to inform the beginning yoga student of the transformative power of yoga
while challenging the experienced yogi/yogini. VINYASA POWER HOUR A beginner's class designed for all levels, our Vinyasa Power Hour is an exploration of asana, pranayama, bandha, and meditation. This fun flow with music, cultivates prana through mindful vinyasa. Our intention is for students to leave class stabilized, strengthened, enlivened, and nurtured. ASANA 60 A beginner's class designed for all levels, our Asana 60 class integrates classical yoga postures and core movements/stretching at a mellow pace, giving you time to seek the edges of your practice. The class incorporates a balanced ratio of standing and seated poses with active stretching. Our Asana 60 class is a great counterpoint to our vinyasa classes. BUTI A 60 minute beginner's class designed for WOMEN ONLY. BUTI's signature movements fuse yoga, tribal dance and plyometrics; and functions as the core of our wellness approach. Derived from the Marathi word Buti meaning “the cure to something hidden or kept secret,” our goal is to guide women through movement and wellness that supports the female spirit — transforming lives from the inside-out. CANDLELIT VINYASA A candlelit beginner's class designed for all levels, our Candlelit Vinyasa class is the final class of our schedule on most nights. Similar to our Power Hour, this is an exploration of asana, pranayama, bandha, and meditation. A less intense flow with music, we attempt to cultivate prana through mindful vinyasa. Again, our intention is for students to leave class stabilized, strengthened, enlivened, and nurtured.
