PIKE YOGA CLASSES
ASHTANGA FIRST SERIES / 75 MIN.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures—a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.
ASHTANGA SHORT FORM
Ashtanga short form was developed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and is a specific series of Sun Salutations, standing and seated postures that are linked together through breath and movement. The benefits of this style of yoga are increased strength, flexibility, and inner peace. This is a wonderful class to familiarize you with several of the postures that you will find in other yoga classes. All levels are welcome.
ALIGNMENT BASED YOGA
Alignment Based yoga emphasizes the importance of the body positioning in order to provide a safe, balanced, and mindful practice. As students gently bring their attention to their alignment, breath, and inner sensations, their mind also relaxes, and their spirit is renewed. This class is good for beginners, more advanced students, or students with injuries or other limitations.
Vinyasa (pronounced "vin-yah-sah") is the Sanskrit word for "flow," and these classes are known for their fluid, movement-intensive practices. Vinyasa teachers choreograph their classes to smoothly transition from pose to pose, and often play music to keep things lively. The intensity of the practice is similar to Ashtanga, but no two vinyasa classes are the same.
ALL LEVEL VINYASA
All level vinyasa is a centering and warming to begin then moving towards an energetic practice with many modifications so all can participate.
Strong Flow is a vinyasa style class that attracts the intermediate to advanced student. This class often offers additional ab work.
Gentle Flow is a slower paced practice that is open to all ages, all sizes, and all fitness levels.
This class will target the connective tissues such as ligaments and fascia. Most poses are done while seated or lying down and are held 3-5 minutes. This class is the perfect addition for your off training days to bring your body into balance and increase range of motion. All levels welcome.
VINYASA WITH YIN
This class is a wonderful fusion of yang and yin styles of yoga. We begin with yang through a diverse and energetic vinyasa flow emphasizing the connection of breath with movement for greater bliss and harmony. We then focus on yin with long held, mainly seated postures, which target healing through gentle stretching for the connective tissues around the hips, the pelvis, and the lower back. All levels are welcome.
Kundalini is a system of exercises which open physical, emotional, mental, and energetic blockages. This leads to better health, better performance and feelings of joy. It uses many of the same postures as Hatha, Vinyasa and well known yoga systems, but it puts far more emphasis on breath and movement. Kundalini yoga can be done alone but also will help those doing other types of yoga accelerate their practice.

Restorative is a delicious way to way to relax and soothe frayed nerves.These classes use bolsters, blankets, and blocks to prop students in passive poses so that the body can experience the benefits of a pose without having to exert any effort. A good Restorative class is more rejuvenating than a nap.
