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!


Efficient, Streamlined, Productive Yoga - Leaving no time to rest on our laurels, this 45 minute practice is designed to heat the body and transform the soul with a quick and effective "get in, get out" sequence.


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.


Relax. Calm the mind. Find Peace. Heal your life. This class provides a foundation for creating or expanding a meditation practice. Each class is structured with mental exercises designed to improve brain function and expand understanding of the meditative state of mind. There will be guided visualizations, along with free-flowing states acquired in silence. Material is drawn from multiple schools of thought, allowing participation in practices that have survived for several thousands of years. This class accommodates all levels of experience.


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'.


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.


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.


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 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.
