vinyasa at the shala

vinyasa yoga at the shala is shaped by the lineage of ashtanga and characterized by skillful instruction, intelligent sequencing, and a sound balance between effort and ease.

All Levels

Suitable for a range of practitioners. Modifications offered for more challenging postures.

Intermediate/Advanced

Economic, rigorous, and challenging. Suitable for students with at least one year of consistent asana practice.

Donation/Pay-what-you-can

The donation-based structure aims to make yoga accessible to everyone, regardless of means. Classes typically follow an All Levels or Intermediate/Advanced format. Minimum $10 suggested.

Basics

Basics classes offer a well-rounded introduction to foundational postures, breath work, and relaxation techniques. Students will develop strength, flexibility, steadiness, and confidence through the study of energizing vinyasa and safe alignment. 

Slow/Down

Slow and steady (moderately challenging) vinyasa builds heat followed by yin (deep release), restorative (deep rest), and meditation. A reboot for the nervous system. All levels welcome, veterans practice free.

Restorative

Restorative classes offer a sanctuary for samyama (integration) of body, mind, and spirit. Through gentle, intelligent sequencing of asanas and pranayama (breath work), the mind is replenished, the body is regenerated, and the various pressures placed on the nervous system are counterbalanced.
