Following is a description of the variety classes we offer:
|Yoga - Vinyasa Flow
|In contemporary yoga parlance, vinyasa stands in opposition to hatha Hatha classes tend to focus on one pose at a time with rest in between. In contrast, vinyasa flow classes are dynamic, stringing poses together to make a continuous sequence. In vinyasa yoga, each movement is synchronized to a breath. The breath is given primacy, acting as an anchor as you move from one pose to the next.
|Yoga - Hatha Flow
|This is a moving meditation with an emphasis on inner awareness and correct alignment. Students are guided to flow through sequences of postures that improve strength, flexibility, and balance. Students have plenty of options to modify the poses to suit their level.
|Set at a slightly slower pace, this class emphasizes presence and awareness as students tune into their body, mind, and spirit. Students have options to modify each asana to suit their body or energy level. A focus on safe alignment is given so that students can get the full benefits of each asana.

Ashtanga is a dynamic style of yoga, so be prepared to break a sweat. The ashtanga method combines strength, flexibility and stamina in a well-balanced way. Even though the order of the postures is predetermined, it is always possible to modify to the individual’s needs. Besides the obvious physical benefits from practicing ashtanga yoga, it can make you calmer, relieve stress, increase concentration and be energizing and uplifting. Everyone can practice ashtanga yoga, however for this class it is beneficial with some previous experience.

Includes restorative and regenerative practices along with mudras, mantras and meditations and pranayama. By moving through the asanas we can directly affect the currents of pranic energy going through chakras, directly affect the flow of energy to the organs through the meridians, restoring flow to an energy system that has been disrupted.

|Guided Meditations with Aly
|Part group discussion of the Inside-Out Understanding, part guided meditation. Every problem we have in life is the result of losing our bearings and getting caught up in the content of our own thinking; the solution to every one of those problems is to find our way back home. Regardless of your situation or circumstance, there is a space within you where you are already perfect, whole, and complete. It is pure consciousness - the space inside of which all thoughts come and go. When you explore this space more deeply, you will find yourself growing closer to your true nature, which is always present but often buried beneath your thinking.
|This meditation is a highly effective way of unwinding and letting go. Being fully immersed in the shaking and dancing helps to “melt” the rock-like being, wherever the energy flow has been repressed and blocked. Then that energy can flow, dance and be transformed into bliss and joy. So the energy can flow vertically and move upward into silence.

|An Exploration of the Inside Out Understanding
|Sometimes called neo-cognitive psychology or the Three Principles paradigm - this is not a "technique" to be learned, but instead a paradigm that comes to be understood at increasingly deeper levels, thereby unlocking the door to your innate health and wellbeing. Every problem we have in life is the result of losing our bearings and getting caught up in the content of our own thinking. Feeling states (and all mental states) are self-created (through mental activity i.e., thought). The latest neuro-scientific research reveals that mental states (ie. emotions) are indeed constructed from within the human mind. But beyond each person's limited, conscious, and personal thought system lies a vast reservoir of wisdom, insight and spiritual intelligence, accessible to all. Each person has unlimited capacity to steer themselves in a positive, healthy direction. Regardless of your situation or circumstance, there is a space within you where you are already perfect, whole, and complete. It is pure consciousness - the space inside of which all thoughts come and go. Aly will guide you how to use your own innate navigation system to find your way back home.

|Marma Facial Massage Workshop
