Dharma Yoga Shiva Namaskar Vinyasas are challenging and physically absorbing vinyasa classes. They reintegrate the flow of prana (life force) throughout the spinal column and facilitate the movement of that prana deep into all areas of the physical, metabolic, intuitive, and bliss bodies. This promotes harmony within all these layers so a concentrated state of radiant health is achieved. The highest crowning meditative asanas, pranayamas (breathing techniques), and Yoga Nidra (psychic sleep/savasana) are embedded in the deep roots of this practice.
Students will be asked to bring themselves to their edge. The instructor works with students to make sure they are working to their ability level so as to get the maximum benefit from their practice while maintaining a safe and nurturing environment.

Join other women in a Yoga practice which builds strength and improves balance, making it easier to manage the extra weight and shifting of gravity that comes with pregnancy. It also helps you to stay connected to the range of physical & emotional changes you are experiencing. In this class we will practice Yoga Asanas to strengthen the spine, open the chest, improve circulation, improve posture and lift the spirit. We will also practice Pranayama or breath consciousness, which can give you energy and quiet the nervous system. Interweaving the practice of meditation will help to bring clarity & fearlessness to the mind.
“Pregnancy is about your own birth. Deliver Yourself.” - Gurmukh
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures or asanas that are held for comparatively long periods of time–five minutes or longer per pose is typical.
Yin Yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. Yin Yoga poses are also designed to improve the flow of qi, the subtle energy said in Chinese medicine to run through the meridian pathways of the body. Improved flow of qi is hypothesized to improve organ health, immunity, and emotional well-being. Yin Yoga is not intended as a complete practice in itself, but rather as a complementary practice to balance the effects of more active forms of yoga and exercise.
Community Gentle/Chair Yoga
For those returning, deepening, or beginning a practice, the community yoga class is taught partly in a chair to enhance correct alignment while gaining strength and awareness. Kripalu vinyasa sequences can be investigated with or without chair for all levels to enjoy as we explore the inquiry of yoga.
Centering meditation, breath awareness, backbends, inversion variations, and final relaxation aid in seeking balance in our ever evolving practice tailored to fit the time of day, season of the year, and season of our lives.
Come join us as we begin each day to build a vital practice by cultivating gentleness, clarity, and consistency as we nurture the light within.
