Each class is student- specific, with poses, sequences and corrections that meaningfully improve your wellbeing: greater ease of movement, improved joint action, focused understanding on how to direct energy, breath and intention. Hands-on corrections, postural adjustments, a focus on the energetic navigation of each pose, and the tools necessary to find your ‘zone’. Accessible to all practice levels, including first-timers. Ashtanga, Hatha Yoga, Postural Alignment and Vinyasa are all featured styles.
Aquavit Water Yoga

Please come in bathing suit and bring towels, water goggles, and a good supply of sun screen, water hats and sun glasses.
Meditation and Restorative Work
60 minutes / 90 minutes
The calm that settles into a practice paced by breath is hard to describe. This hatha yoga class stretches and kneads, helps to reset the nervous system and balance hormone levels with a carefully-curated flow of slow, restorative poses. The class finishes with a 15-minute guided meditation.
Body Tuning Yoga
60 minutes / 90 minutes
As humans, we have a remarkable vocabulary of movement as well as a capacity to reason that is unique to our species.
Over time, gravity, illness and age can lead to health problems. Emotional and intellectual stress can leave telltale signs on our organs, muscles and nervous system, reducing our vitality and resistance. Injury and trauma can chisel away at our inherent freedom of movement , sometimes to the point that whole areas of the body and mind can feel disinherited, breath and awareness reduced.
Body Tuning yoga is a therapeutic approach to yoga that expands the body-mind connection. The Body Tuning method of physical therapy was created by Shmuel Tatz and developed by Glenn Black into a yoga context.
Using advanced yoga teachings, classic yoga asanas and corrective therapeutic exercises, students learn how to unlock areas of their body where movement and life have been impaired. The result of this challenging and highly spirited yoga practice is a sense of spaciousness, awareness and freedom, improved balance, greater core strength and the development of inner skill like mindfulness. As hips open, shoulders unlock, ribs expand and breath improves, students feel both wonder and delight to see how their bodies really are instruments that with proper tuning, can once again play the remarkable and vibrant song of life.
Body Tuning Yoga is suitable for all practice levels, from absolute yoga beginners to advanced yoga practitioners. Please dress comfortably so that your clothes do not inhibit movement.
