Class will end or begin with a short breathing practice or mediation. The last class of a session includes a 30+ minute deep relaxation (also known as yoga nidra) in addition to movement. Modifications and alternative poses will also be offered. Please bring your own yoga mats.

Class is held in C Common Room at Swift River School. (looking at the building, on the right side.)



Ashtanga Inspired Yoga with CA
Ashtanga is an energetic yoga that focuses on synchronizing breath with movements, and building strength, flexibility and body awareness. Individual poses are presented in a sequence and are linked by flowing movements which will warm the body inviting deeper exploration of the practice. These sessions will begin with modifications accessible to all, and will build from there allowing each practitioner to explore their own expression of each posture.


Vinyasa with Brent
Vinyasa is one of the most common styles of yoga practiced in the West. Vinyasa is a term used to describe continuous or dynamic movements between yoga poses. This flow of movement is excellent for getting your heart rate going and working up a sweat. Vinyasa can also help increase flexibility, strength, stability, calmness, and focus.  Participants are encouraged to bring a yoga mat, yoga blocks and water.  Some mats and blocks will be available.
