Basic Yoga classes are perfect for beginners or people looking to revisit the fundamentals of yoga practice. A great class for those who are new to yoga, or those wishing to go at a little slower pace than the Forrest or multi-level yoga.
Forrest Yoga was designed by Ana Forrest to help protect and heal our bodies as we live our modern day lives. In this style of yoga, we intelligently warm and strengthen muscles groups so as to heal and prevent hip, back, shoulder, and neck pain. We also use the practice to cultivate mindfulness, self confidence, pleasure, and peace that we can then take into our lives off the mat. All Forrest Yoga classes are multi-level.
All levels are welcome to attend this Heated Vinyasa class. Options are given to all students to the beginner to the more advanced. In a multilevel class a student has plenty of opportunity for personal expression and movement patterns within the flowing sequence. Rhythmic sun salutes, creative sequencing and the progressive linking of poses and series keeps this class energetic and fun filled from start to finish. In this heated vinyasa class the yoga studio is heated to 85 degrees.
In multi-level classes the student will learn to move smoothly through the postures while combining the almost dance like movements with specific breathing techniques.
A beautiful surrender into quiet. This passive form of Yoga is characterized by seated, reclined, or supported postures held for several minutes. It is meant to encourage deep physical, mental, and emotional relaxation through the use of bolsters, blankets, blocks and straps. This soothing practice relieves the effects of chronic stress, and leaving you feeling nourished, nurtured, and well rested.
Kundalini Yoga is one of the most comprehensive, effective, safe and uplifting forms of yoga. Utilizing kriyas (exercises) that consist of pranayama (breath work), mudras (hand gestures), bandhas (muscular locks) and mantras (chants) we are able to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity and purify the bloodstream as we uncoil the energy at the base of our spines bringing balance to the body, mind and soul.
Vinyasa Flow and Restore. The perfect combination of an all level Heated Vinyasa Flow followed by Restorative/Yin postures. In the first hour, we link movement and breath as the body heats and becomes more fluid. In the final 30 minutes, we explore postures that help us surrender into quiet.

Sat; Date: Mar 07, 2015; From: 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM. Chanting with Bhagavan Das is really a one of a kind experience, not to be missed. Here is what his flyer says:Teacher, performer, counter-cultural icon, lover of God: Bhagavan Das is as rich and manifold as Existence itself.Bhagavan Das is one of the last living cultural icon of the 60's. As Ram Das's mentor (author of Be Here Now) he ushered in the New Age Spiritual Movement being the first Kirtan Artist in America. His groundbreaking album "Ah" (1971) produced by Jimmi Hendrix's manager Michael Jeffrey's was the first World Music album from Electric Ladyland. Bhagavan Das has also toured with Allen Ginsberg, opened for the Grateful Dead and sang with Bob Dylan. Living as a sadhu in India for six years Bhagavan Das studied the ancient science of Nada Yoga under the guidance and direction of his Guru Neem Karoli Baba. Nada Yoga is the path of devotion to the inner sound current as a means to God Realization. Alan Watt said in a Rolling Stone review of the Album "Ah" that "Bhagavan Das is truly a Master of Nada Yoga".To experience Bhagavan Das in concert is to receive Darshan of the Guru himself, to touch and be touched by the immortal essence of his Guru Neem Karoli Baba - as the Light of the Guru is delivered through the mystical and potent voice of Bhagavan Das. His devotion to his Guru as that living inner sound is what he shares and transmits to all that wish to receive this blessing.Bhagavan Das's rare and sacred offering to this world is like a singing open heart heralding the Guru's Grace through the vehicle of Sound.
