                                                      Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
                                                      I took the one less traveled by,
                                                      And that has made all the difference.

All Levels -  Something for everyone from beginner to advanced yogis
Level 1 -  These classes are intended for new students needing an introduction to the basics of alignment in yoga, but are also appropriate for continuing students who enjoy a slower pace. Level 1 classes generally offer more guidance in modifications to accommodate a variety of physical challenges that may limit your movement.
Level 1-2 - For students who have attended Level 1 classes and are ready for a more advanced beginning class.  The basic postures are presented in more challenging ways with a focus on the fundamentals of yoga.
Level 2 - Classes are intended for a moderately experienced student. Instructors will continue to offer guidance and insight into proper form, but the class is generally more challenging, often with a faster pace than the Level 1-2 classes. You may encounter more intricate balancing poses, deeper openers, some arm-balances, and you will be encouraged to build strength through longer holds.  Level 2 classes will help you take your practice to a whole new level.
Level 2-3 - These classes presume students are familiar with intermediate yoga postures (including inversions and backbends).  In these classes you will use your knowledge of postures and breathing to practice exciting, physically demanding and challenging sequences and variations.  The pace of these classes is faster, you will go deeper and your instructor will help you achieve breakthroughs in your practice and your self-awareness.

This class closes with a meditation that allows you to slow your breath, quiet your mind, and find peace.  Level 1-2

Vinyasa Flow 2 Yoga
- Recommended for students with at least 6 months of yoga experience or those in good physical condition with 3 months experience.  This class focuses on vinyasa style yoga (connecting breath to movement) building heat strength and flexibility.  Challenging postures are explored in depth including balancings, inversions and backbends.   The teacher may encourage the student to be responsible for taking rests and modifications as needed.  Level 2

Vin Yin Yoga - This practice is 1/2 Vinyasa, 1/2 Yin yoga. It will begin with a slower paced, meditative, breath-led Vinyasa flow (the yang aspect or solar).  You will direct your focus inward taking your time to feel yourself internally aligning while building heat, endurance, and strength and increasing circulation. As we delve into a deeper level of awareness we will take our practice down to the floor for a yin practice, (the lunar aspect) targeting the connective tissue of the hip, pelvis and lower spine. We will also work on opening and releasing tension in the shoulders. By balancing the solar and the lunar – strength and receptivity – you will find clarity, wholeness and deep peace.  Level 1-2

Wave Yoga -
Sadie Nardini teaches what she calls core vinyasa flow yoga - a wave like way of transitioning from one pose to the next, the movement originating from the lower abs all the way up the body.  It is very strengthening yet gentle, and particularly removes strain and pain in the lumbar spine.  "When I first experienced these wave-like movements, I was amazed that the pain I had been experiencing in certain poses was no longer there.  I love to share "the wave" as it also creates more space in the body for the energy to flow freely." -Ginjah Knuth    Level 2

Yogi's Choice - This class is instructor's choice!  All classes are designed to leave you feeling invigorated, refreshed, and restored. Several genres may be taught in this class or just one!  Including Gentle Flow, Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Restorative, or Yin.  Always changing and always fun!  
All Levels to Level 1-2 (check class schedule for level)
