Vinyasa Flow Levels 1-3 4:00-5:00 Thursdays and 1:30-2:30 Fridays:
This class is a true all levels class with options for those newer to yoga as well as advanced options, though some yoga experience is recommended to get the full benefit of my teaching. Every 3-4 weeks we will change our body focus and sequence and regular attendees will see a difference and growth in their practice throughout that time. While we will have a flow element to every sequence, this class will focus more on learning how to open and strengthen various body parts in order to improve alignment and confidence in each posture. Contemporary "upbeat chill" music provided but is not the focus of the class. Some adjustments provided--if you prefer not to be touched, I ask that you approach me before class to let me know so I can respect your space. Satori Yoga classes are "unheated" but you'll always have a comfortable space to practice in with the temperature usually around 70-75 degrees.
Humble Yoga is a boutique studio in Moraga and offers a variety of classes that range from "Flex" (strength and cardio class) to "Flow" (power vinyasa), and Prenatal and Gentle Flow classes as well. The relaxing and beautiful set up provide the most welcoming place to practice, to truly connect to your breath and your body and to the local community. Classes can be booked online through their website and drop ins welcome. There is a new student special if you have never been to Humble before. Please arrive 5 minutes before class to set up. Mat rentals and water purchases available. Each class will have a different feel depending on the style and the instructor, but you will always find a well-balanced sequence, relatable real-world intentions and down to earth vibe. Nothing complicated, we keep it simple. The breath, the body, the mind. Humble Yoga classes are heated to a comfortable 75-80 degrees.
Candlelight Flow 8pm Mondays:
This is an all-levels class for night owls like me! I usually start this class with a gentle warm up, but we get into a movement-focused vinyasa sequence soon enough! Similarly to most of my other classes, the body focus will remain constant for 3-4 weeks, the sequence changing slightly to allow for growth and development for those who practice with me regularly. There will be modification offerings as well as up-level options for more advanced yogis. All I ask in these classes is that you mindfully move the body and mindfully move the breath and engage in the learning process of yoga. Contemporary "upbeat chill" music will be played during class and some adjustments will be provided. We will end class with an extended cool down for the remaining 20 minutes of class, and this class will primarily focus on ways to wind down for the night and shake off the tension and stress that builds during our day.
Humble Yoga also offers “Flex”, “Flow” (traditional flow-based vinyasa), “Vinyasa Yoga” (non-flow vinyasa/hatha), “Power”, “Gentle Yoga” and “Restorative” class options, all of which I regularly sub. Check the schedule on MindBody for updates.
Vita Oakland is a beautiful studio located in Rockridge on College Avenue. Vita has a full class offering ranging from pilates to barre, to higher intensity “Trilogy” to several styles of yoga. With a relaxing setting filled with light (and plants!) it provides a welcoming place to practice, to truly connect to your breath and your body and to the local community which also happens to be my neighborhood for the past 9 years. Classes can be booked online through their website and drop ins welcome. There is a new student special if you have never been to Vita before. Please arrive 5 minutes before class to set up. Manduka mats are available to use, but you are also free to bring your own. Bring a water bottle, we have a fill up station. Each class will have a different feel depending on the style and the instructor, but you will always find a well-balanced sequence, a strong workout and a friendly atmosphere. Vita classes are heated to a comfortable 70-75 degrees.
