SANCTUARY VINYASA FLOW

Sanctuary Vinyasa Flow is our offering of a flowing style of yoga that seamlessly moves through the poses one breath at a time. Our classes incorporate an intentional and creative blend of sun salutations and other namaskars with a full range of poses sequenced in a way that provides the foundation to cultivate inner and outer alignment, strength and flexibility, stamina and grace. Music is selected for each class that perfectly complements the flow. Join us to grow stronger, connect with your breath, and open your body, mind and heart.

ANJALI RESTORATIVE YOGA

Anjali Restorative Yoga is a rich practice of deep and meditative support, both physically and emotionally. The practitioner is held by bolsters, pillows and blankets for sustained periods of time in deeply rejuvenative postures. The hallmark of an Anjali Restorative Yoga practice is that the restorative spaces are held with incredible detail to ease, rich imagery, guided meditations, and restoring pranayama, or breathing practices.

CANDLELIGHT FLOW

Peel away the layers of your day as you melt into your mat surrounded by the gentle glow of candlelight. Music and the movement of your body in deep connection to your breath will heal, transform and awaken your heart while de-stressing your mind. Low to moderate intensity, all levels welcome!

DHARMA YOGA 

Vinyasa series created by Sri Dharma Mittra. These sequences reintegrate the flow of prana throughout the spinal column and facilitate the movement of the vital life force deep into all areas of the physical, metabolic, intuitive and bliss bodies. This promotes harmony within all these layers so a concentrated state of radiant health is achieved. A series of deeper balancing, stretching, back bending, twists and some inverted variations and options will be explored. This practice finishes with Deep Relaxation, breathing exercises, and concentration/meditation certain to bring a deep sense of calm, increased sense of balance, peace, and invigorated energy to all students. Appropriate for all levels.

POWER LATTE

In one way, the quality of our lives can be measured by how well we manage stress and tension. This early morning transformative flowing class is designed to cleanse the body of tension and leave you feeling energized and alive; all without that morning 'cup of joe'.

POWER LUNCH

One of Sanctuary’s signature favorites! Our version of a high powered lunch will restore, revitalize, and renew your body and spirit. The physical nature of the class heats the body from within giving you the opportunity to wring out the stresses of the morning grind. A strong class that will give you the fuel you need for the rest of your day.

SLOW FLOW

Providing the same transformative benefits as our signature Sanctuary Vinyasa Flow class but with a slower pace. A foundational flowing practice that is challenging in it’s own way. A perfect class for beginners or anyone who wants to slow things down while continuing to grow in their practice.

SLOW FLOW + RESTORATIVE

This slower paced class provides all the benefits of our signature Sanctuary Vinyasa Flow classes with the added benefit of Restorative postures to end the session. Through a foundational flowing series designed to warm and open the body, you are prepared to receive the rejuvenating power of postures supported with bolster, blankets and/or blocks to rejuvenate the body and mind.

SUPER GENTLE

Mild and meditative 45 minute slow flow class for all shapes and sizes, utilizing props and breathwork, and encouraging self acceptance and laughter. No experience preferred, all are welcome. Join us!

YIN YOGA

Yin Yoga uses long, passive holds to work on the deep, dense connective tissues of the body - the tendons, ligaments and cartilage - which are difficult to energize and open. This deep, passive practice settles you into poses for 3 -10 minutes, bringing you inward.
