Sarah Hess instructs the following:
  • All Levels Yoga
  • Open to all levels, this vinyasa practice features flowing movement. Modifications will be offered so that students can tailor the class to meet their specific needs.

  • Yoga Basics
  • Relax, renew and re-energize! Gentle movement for all levels of yoga students.   We keep this class uncomplicated so students of all levels can learn at a very relaxed pace. A great class for beginning students.

  • Yin Yoga
  • Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. The postures will be held from 1-5 minutes. The use of props will be integrated into the hold of the postures so that the muscles can fully relax and the connective tissue can then be reached. The yin portion of the class will last approximately 40 minutes, we will then do a few Sun Salutations to address the yang (heating) portion of the class and finish with deep relaxation.

  • Moon Flow Yoga
  • Moon Flow is a cooling, balancing, and introspective practice. Sun Salutations create heat, whereas Moon Salutations balance an overabundance of energy. If you are feeling anxious or over stimulated, this flow can calm those impulses. This cooling practice will help to replenish your vital energy. This class is an all level class.
