Alice Wylie instructs the following:

The class always includes a proper full body warm-up, mindful movement and sequencing, attention to safe alignment, and clear guidance of breath-initiated flow. While the class is geared toward the intermediate practitioner, modifications are made to suit newer students and variations for the more experienced student.This is not a hot yoga class. The studio temperature will be adjusted depending on outside weather conditions to suit the comfort level of students and to optimize the benefits of the practice. Usually, the temperature will range between 76 degrees and 80 degrees, with the maximum being the exception rather than the rule.

 

This class is foremost a space for breath work. It explores postures and observes the effects of breath, movement, and stillness on the body and mind. Through the use of adjustments and/or props, the student will learn to fit the postures to the body to experience their maximum benefits, and they will learn to breathe more freely so that both their mind and body find ease.This class may incorporate either, or both, continuous movement through vinyasa and/or time spent holding individual postures to explore them more deeply. The teacher will offer modifications so that the student can either increase or decrease the level of physical intensity of the class in order to fit individual needs. The class is taught without music, as students are encouraged to move to the sound of their breath.

The class is meant for those with knowledge of basic yoga postures.

Audrey Roxas

Vinyasa

Audrey has been practicing yoga for over 15 years and initially sought it as a way to take a break from the daily work pressures. As her practice matured, she has also realized the spiritual and quieting benefits of yoga – the ability to stop the chatter and just be still. Certified at the 500 hour level, her classes are fun, dynamic, and challenging. They are focused on building strength and stability (aiming for form versus depth) but offers plenty of room for students to work on expanding their own practice. With her continued desire to share her practice, she is also certified in the healing art of Thai Yoga (assisted yoga) and Restorative Yoga (through Judith Hanson Lasater). She attributes her love for yoga, her center, and grounding from all the wonderful teachers she has and had...

Power Pilates: 1 & 2
Balanced Body: Comprehensive

 

Katherine Little-Richardson instructs the following:
Pilates is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates. It puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination and balance. It is a disciplined workout with particular focus on full inhalation and complete exhalation of the breath. All exercises are done with control, the muscles working to lift against gravity. It is similar to yoga in that it stretches, strengthens, and aligns the body all at the same time, and in doing so it facilities an advanced yoga practice. It is thus a useful adjunct to a yoga practice.
Our classes strengthen and lengthen core muscles while opening joints and releasing tension. Making use of a stability ball, students learn how to modify the workout to a level appropriate for them, create and condition strong, elongated and flexible muscles that improve posture, strength and overall mobility. The deep abdominal and spinal muscles will be triggered, and the spine decompressed.Individual attention is provided to make beginners feel at ease while not-so beginners get to perfect their form and further strengthen their core.Recommended for all levels.

Neva Ingalls

Vinyasa

Neva Ingalls has been on the journey of Yoga since her teenage years when she was initiated into Raj Yoga by her first and most important teacher Prem Rawat (Maharaji). Immersed in a lifelong study of classical ballet, Martha Graham technique and various forms of Jazz and international dance, Neva came to the Vinyasa practice later, in the late 1980’s, when introduced to simple breath guided sequences supported by bandhas, by a teacher who studied in India with Sri Krishnamacharya, the father of most of the asana practice lineages we know in the west. Not realizing the power and significance of these techniques before they were generally known, Neva nonetheless practiced them diligently and experienced spontaneous flow sequences that arose from her personal practice. Neva studied daily with yogis, such as Micheline Berry, Mark Stephens, Lauren Peterson, Max Strom and later, Shiva Rae and Annie Carpenter. She also practiced Ashtanga Yoga with Lauren Peterson and Chuck Miller, and completed Ashtanga teacher training with David Swenson in 2001. Neva is E-RYT500 and certified Yoga Therapist with IYAT, and developed the Yoga Alliance registered, Inner Domain 5 Element 200/300/500 Yoga Teacher Training School in 2006. She has been leading trainings and retreats in the USA and abroad since, and many gifted graduates are now successfully teaching in the Washington DC area or wherever they have moved. In Neva’s classes you can expect the challenge to be as much about letting go, as about applying effort and the latter will be encouraged with total balanced awareness arising from breath awareness. Neva’s sequences are spontaneous and creative and incorporate other movement healing systems such as Feldenkrais and Qi Gong. Neva’s studies continue and now include a certification in Ayurveda through Dr Frawley’s American Vedic Institute. Find out more about Neva and her offerings at www.innerdomain.org...

Ronnie Jersky instructs the following:
This class consists of basic to intermediate poses sequenced at a moderate pace. Vinyasa will be used to link breath to movement to create a flowing meditation to build heat, strength, and flexibility. Students are advised by the teacher to rest when appropriate, but students always have rest as an option at any time. The class, though a bit more slanted towards the client with a consistent practice of 3 plus months, welcomes the beginner using basic foundational poses as a base. Modifications for all poses are clearly explained. The intermediate practitioner will find more advanced variations of the same poses offered. All will receive a proper body warm up, some core conditioning, and explanations regarding alignment and safe practice. The studio may be heated between 75 and 80 degrees and complimented by great music, supporting more flexibility and a calm state of mind. Savasana will complete the practice providing mental and physical rest, fluid connection to breath, self-acceptance, and peace.
The class always includes a proper full body warm-up, mindful movement and sequencing, attention to safe alignment, and clear guidance of breath-initiated flow. While the class is geared toward the intermediate practitioner, modifications are made to suit newer students and variations for the more experienced student.
This is not a hot yoga class. The studio temperature will be adjusted depending on outside weather conditions to suit the comfort level of students and to optimize the benefits of the practice. Usually, the temperature will range between 76 degrees and 80 degrees, with the maximum being the exception rather than the rule.
This class is a moderately paced class appropriate for ongoing/experienced level I students through advanced practitioners. All Levels connotes a mixed style class incorporating vinyasa yoga as well as attention to alignment and technique. Modifications and amplifications are given allowing the students to choose a more beginning or a more advanced practice according to their needs. Progressive, safe growth will always be emphasized. This is a beautiful opportunity to be inspired by your fellow students at all levels. Class will start with a proper body warm up, followed by attention to core stimulus. Asana combinations will systematically navigate the entire body. The room may be heated between 75-80 degrees and complimented by great music enhancing overall calm and flexibility. Savasana will complete practice as the student's mind, body, and spirit yoke together in peace.
This class is a powerful, energetic form of yoga where students fluidly move from one pose to the next with breath connecting movement. This type of class is taught in a heated studio (ours will not exceed 80 degrees) which makes it a vigorous and revitalizing form of physical fitness. It incorporates strength, flexibility, balance, cardio and physical and mental stamina all in one session. Baron Baptiste, founder of this form of yoga, describes this practice as "the perfect blend of sweat and serenity". This class will start with a proper body warm up followed by belly up core work. Interval and cross-training exercises will be incorporated to challenge both the aerobic and anaerobic systems of the body. Because the body adapts, each class will vary types, intensity, and duration of exercises. The teacher will provide variations to modify, intensify, or challenge the body by altering the pace or duration of poses, and the frequency that they are repeated. Prerequisites for this class includes consistent practice of 5 plus months, familiarity of basic and foundational poses, and most importantly, an open mind and an open heart. Anticipate torching your calories, toning your muscles, strengthening and rinsing your body, and clearing your mind, leaving you with a sense of accomplishment and empowerment. The dynamic mix of sweat and spirit that you cultivate in class will challenge you to step up to your edge and unlock your hidden potential for achieving authentic personal power and living an extraordinary life. Opportunity for inversions and balances and challenging transitions will occur often, but all practitioners are encouraged to modify as needed, following teacher suggestions. Music will be incorporated into each session. Class will close with a well-earned savasana. Be prepared to shine!

Sarah Hull instructs the following:
Just as you would build a home on a solid foundation, this class lays a solid foundation for yoga asana (posture). Each week the class explores the fundamentals of asana and Iyengar Yoga. Learn and refine the basic poses as you build stamina, alignment, and poise. This is a place where people who are newer to yoga asana can safely and effectively develop stability and mobility while cultivating body awareness. But also, a place where the more seasoned practitioner can explore and further their understanding of the poses that are at the core of asana.
Alignment yoga includes the fundamentals of asana (posture) that is appropriate to beginning students as well as seasoned yoga practitioners. Standing, twisting and forward bending poses is the primary focus. This class introduces basic back bending and inversion poses and is taught with detailed alignment cues and props to help cultivate stability and flexibility. Using asana as the vehicle, the student has the opportunity refine their posture, which facilitates a deepening of the alignment of the body, the mind, and the spirit practice that is Yoga. The temperature in the studio is kept at a comfortable level.

As a level II/III Vinyasa class students will be guided to self awareness through breath awareness and through breath awareness to finding a perfect balance between ease and effort, strength and graceful flow. This class is geared to regular, serious and knowledgable students and will include a variety of Sun Salutations, standing poses, balances, arm balances, inversions, backbends, forward bends,hip openers, twists, supine positions and savasana. You will receive a thorough awakening of strength, vitality, range of motion, centered, grounded mental emotional state and enhanced self awareness.

This class offers a well rounded practice for all.
Starting with breath work, core work and gentle stretching, the body is warmed up by moving through Sun Salutations. At that point students get into deep stretching and twisting involving standing and balancing postures. After that, for advanced practitioners, it’s time to practice inversions. For newer students, it’s time to learn about inversions or simply practice something else such as shoulder standS or hip openers or anything that the student has been working on.
Throughout the class, different options are given to suit individual needs. Students will be assisted one on one and adjustments given to deepen the practice.

Students can expect to be introduced to various YIN postures which address the yin tissues also known as connective tissues. Yin poses are held for longer periods of time to allow the muscles to release around the connective tissues and over time to allow for longer and leaner tissues, which is healthy for the body. YIN poses are passive in nature and address hips, pelvis, inner thighs and lower spine. YIN is an opportunity to learn how to find stillness and peace which benefits us all.
This class is suitable for all levels.
This class is appropriate for students with a regular and serious practice. It is not advisable for somebody who has never practiced yoga.
