Class Descriptions

Mornin’ Quickie

The YogaShak Mornin’ Quickie is the perfect way to kick-start your day! A heated 60-minute, strong vinyasa flow that promises to strengthen and lengthen your entire body.

No fuss, no muss ~ this class is the perfect cross-training option to round out your fitness and sports activities.

The Hottie

A creative flow class performed in a heated room that includes hands-on assists, and uplifting music and messaging.

This class is open to students of all levels and will leave you feeling energized and inspired.

Nooner

The YogaShak Nooner offers the ultimate break in your workday.

This heated class offers 60 minutes of strong vinyasa flow to strengthen you head-to-toe, while encouraging your mind to ease and your focus to become clear.

Afternoon Delight

The YogaShak Afternoon Delight allows you to get 60 minutes of strong vinyasa flow before evening activities.

Like our other heated vinyasa style classes, you will cultivate strength and find release in the body while encouraging your mind to ease and your focus to become clear.

Same awesome format as “The Hottie” in just 60 minutes!

Long, Slow, Deep

Long, Slow, Deep helps ease the tension in your body and mind.

This class works into tight areas such as shoulders, hips, hamstrings, and low back by combining deep, long holds with slower paced, gentle vinyasa.

Poses held for 2-3 minutes. This deep-stretch, restorative class is appropriate for all levels and you will leave feeling refreshed and renewed!

Slow & Steady (Get Me Ready!) (Not Heated)

Slow & Steady (get me ready!) is designed as an introduction to the practice of vinyasa yoga. This class is non-heated and moves at a slower pace than our other classes.

Yin to my Yang (Not Heated)

Yin Yoga is a natural balance to all of your “Yang” activities providing a meditative practice using gentle, longer-held postures to allow for deep opening in the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis and spine.

The practice focuses on connective tissue ~ benefiting the hips, knees, spine, shoulders and your general flexibility.

Although challenging, the longer held postures imbue a feeling of balance, calm and bliss!.

Candlelight Yin (Not Heated)

Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues (such as the ligaments, bones, and joints) and energetic channels of the meridians, nerves, and blood system of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice.

Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles.

One big difference noticed by students of Yin Yoga is the long-held, passive nature of the posture, which gives time for a deeper journey to unfold–a journey into the meditative aspects of yoga.

Prenatal Yoga (Not Heated)

Let Sarah welcome you to a safe and supportive space for your journey to motherhood (and beyond). Prenatal Yoga classes are thoughtfully designed and sequenced to help strengthen and open the muscles and joints of the body that work hard to support your growing baby. Asana (or the physical postures) will help prepare your body for pregnancy and childbirth, breathing exercises will aid in relaxation and visualization as well as meditation will build confidence and peace.

Overall, Sarah’s prenatal class will focus on the tremendous feminine power and abilities that a pregnant woman possesses. Prior to her own journey to motherhood, Sarah had a passion for learning about pregnancy and found yoga to be a channel through which she could share that passion and help empower women through their own journey. She is certified specifically in Prenatal Yoga and looks forward to working with and building a community of yogi mammas!
