Pike Yoga


At Pike Yoga, we believe that EVERYONE needs yoga. Yoga is the one practice that complements all other exercise programs. Whether practiced daily or once a week, yoga will produce considerable benefits.

Our philosophy, "Attitude. Matitude. Gratitude." comes from our practice of yoga. 

Most of us come to class with some form of an attitude, and not necessarily in the negative sense. Our attitudes can arise from frustration, guilt, anger, fatigue, loneliness, excitement, urgency, contentment, or any number of other feelings. So then, we come to the mat and practice; we begin to work through these outside distractions. 

Yes, it's a made up word. Matitude is simply being present--there on the mat--with the breath, the mind, and the body. Matitude is dynamic--always changing, always evolving. It is the practice of being who it is that you are supposed to be. 

The final component is gratitude. This is where the intention of your practice is absorbed. It is finding light in darkness, quietness in chaos--simply being thankful.

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.

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

Sun. 2:15pm

Tues. 9am (75min)


Second series focus on opening the chest and stimulating the spine.  Our spine is the housing for our nerve center.  By bending and twisting the spinal column, we are encouraging and maintaining suppleness on a physical level as well as opening energy channels to allow prana (life force) to flow freely. There are many asanas “postures” within second series which are readily accessible to the practitioner that is coming to it for the first time.

@2pm on the Sundays that Heather Clements teaches

Thursdays at 9am (with Yin)


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 begins with a centering/breathing, warm up, then moves towards an energetic practice with many modifications so all can participate.

YOGA 201



Restorative is a delicious 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, is a way to lengthen your muscles and is good for ALL levels. Class limit: 15

Restorative postures melt away physical and mental tension and deeply relax the mind and body. They also assist the body’s ability to heal injuries and recover from illness by releasing tension that would otherwise impede recovery.

No experience necessary.  Please wear comfortable clothing.


1st Saturday of the month, 4-5:15pm

Self myofascial release through body rolling is a powerful self care remedy for many chronic and acute issues in the body. A variety of sized balls and tools will help you release the tension from your fascia creating an over all feeling of lightness, ease and spaciousness throughout your whole being. Learning how to release the issues in your tissues is important for everyone, not only will it increase your range of motion, decrease pain, balance the nervous system,  and make you feel more fluid in your body but it will also increase awareness as to where you are gripping and holding trauma. This practice will also help decrease injuries as you start to connect with your body on a deeper level.  

Fridays, Noon - 1:30pm

$20 drop in or $60 for the 4 week series

SELF MYOFASCIAL RELEASE SERIES (Register under enrollments)

Yoga Nidra is a systematic approach to complete relaxation. Yoga Nidra is often referred to as yogic sleep, where the student hovers between sleep and wakefulness. This state of deep relaxation is reached by letting go of external awareness and turning inwards, following the guidance of a teacher. The students comfortably lie down on their backs, and there are no physical movements involved.



Mysore is a format of Ashtanga Yoga. Mysore style yoga class is a tradition passed down from Sri K. Pattabhi Jois as taught in the southern Indian city of Mysore.  Instruction is not “led” as a group but individualized for each student.  Students practice their own portion of the Ashtanga asanas at their own pace.  The teachers assist each student individually by giving physical and verbal adjustments.  Students are encouraged to memorize the sequence of asanas and as strength, stamina, flexibility, and concentration builds, additional asanas are added.

At the beginning of class the teacher leads the students in the opening chant. Sometimes students come a bit early to class and begin warming up with sun salutations before the class begins.  However when the teacher announces the opening chant, they come back to standing and chant with the group.  If you don’t want to chant no worries!  Just stand with hands at heart center or by your side and feel the vibrations of the room.

Everyone begins with the Primary Series and students gradually work through and memorize the postures. In this way, yoga becomes a “practice” which is done individually (like meditation, running or playing the piano) while noticing your breath, feelings, thoughts and sensations.

The practice always begins with 3-5 of both A & B sun salutations. This is followed by the same sequence of standing postures. Next the postures are seated postures. At this point you may see students skipping postures or going to second series. Remember it’s an individual practice. But no matter what series the student is following, closing starts with a backbend/bridge and the same sequence of postures shoulder stand, headstand etc. Finally there is a 10 minute corpse pose.  If a student finishes their practice early, they practice at least a ten minute corpse pose before quietly leaving.  Most students practice for 1 1/2 hours however students who are on a tight schedule or have an injury often practice a partial part of the sequence which may take 45 minutes or so.

Don’t worry you do not need to know the sequence (a perfect class for beginners). Cheat sheets are available.  Never hesitate to call a teacher over that’s what the teacher is there for.  Just sit quietly if you need a teachers attention and they'll see you and come over to answer your questions, concerns or help you get into a posture.

A Mysore class can seem confusing; like everyone is just doing their own thing or are doing random postures. But once you understand the basic structure of the series, it starts to make sense. With a little patience and commitment, you will be amazed at how quickly you can learn to do yoga as a self practice.
