You can join us

  1. In person on our OUTDOOR PATIO

  2. LIVE STREAMED from our homes to yours 

  3. and ON DEMAND on your time. 

We respect and recognize the importance of individualism and authentic embodiment from your teachers. Each class is an authentic offering of our instructors; we honor the wisdom of our teachers and encourage them to teach classes they believe in.

Stick around after class! We offer tea after class as a gesture of hospitality and an opportunity to slow down, connect and honor each other.

YOGA CLASSES

We teach hatha vinyasa yoga. Classes are authentic offering of our instructors; classes are personal, not company scripted and reflect the teacher's style, adding the their own unique twist to each class.

 

While all teachers are have their own way of sharing their gifts,  there is one thing all Namaste teachers and Namaste classes have in common – we teach yoga asana for ALL bodies, we believe in fitting the pose to the student, rather than the student to the pose.

Our three class distinctions: 

 
YOGA

This class links yoga postures with breath and incorporates flowing sequences with an attention to alignment, as well as opportunities for stillness and reflection.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

Grounded vinyasa, intentional hatha with room to explore the subtleties of postures before finding flow. 

If sweating, students break sweat from holding poses or moving.

YOGA FLOW

A flowing, dynamic practice that cultivates presence by connecting movement with breath - excellent for students who find that movement helps with concentration.

WHAT TO EXPECT?
Yoga Flow classes may move at a quicker pace than "Yoga" classes.


If sweating, the expectation is to break a sweat from moving.

YIN RESTORE

Work the connective tissues of our ligaments, joints and deep fascial networks in this meditative practice focused on deep stretching, breathing and relaxation.

Props are used to support the body as postures are held for an extended time allowing for deep stretches that are soft, rather than muscle driven. 

Yin Yoga is the perfect complement to a regular practice of active asana.

CLASS LEVELS

The in person classes have a number designation next to the name of the class; 1, 1-2, 2 or 2-3. 

Our online classes are open level, teacher offering options for poses to allow you to take it at your own pace. 

1

Establish a baseline of skill and awareness while increasing strength and mobility. Learn the basics of the Asana practice, including safe alignment, the names of the poses, and how to move mindfully, with the breath.

 

Expect detailed instruction at an accessible pace.

1-2

As described in level 1 classes, level 1-2 is intended to build a baseline understanding of the poses and safe alignment, with the added challenge of compounded transitions and more complex balancing asanas. 

 

What you'll practice? Awareness and finding ease. 

2

In level 2 classes, expect more nuanced instruction and exploration of "peak poses."

The pace of transitions flow more quickly and fluidly, with the expectation that students already have a foundational understanding of basic poses and safe alignment.

2-3

This is an advanced practice for students seeking to challenge strength and mobility.

Aspirational poses (such as arm balances, inverions, and binds) will be explored, while navigating complex transitions that holistically engage mind, body, and breath.

 

MEDITATION & BREATHWORK CLASSES

You'll find three contemplative practices to complelent your asana practice on our schedule: 

 
YOGA NIDRA RELAXATION

An effortless form of meditation practiced lying down, sometimes referred to as a 'meditation nap,’ Yoga Nidra is recommended to aid those facing stress, burn out, exhaustion, lack of sleep or for those who want to start a meditation practice, but don’t know where to begin.

 

This guided meditation systematically relaxes your body and nervous system by bringing the mind into a delta wave state of consciousness, inviting deep rest into the physical and emotional bodies, activating your rest and digest mode.

ACTIVE BREATHWORK 

This active breathwork meditation involves extended deep rhythmic breathing.

 

This powerful practice balances the brain and the nervous system, allowing us clear emotional energy, calm the mind, relax the body and open the heart — a regular reset for your life.

This style of breathwork stems from Holotropic and Rebirthing Breathwork teachings, and is sometimes also called ecstatic,

transformational, revelation breathwork and others.

GUIDED
MEDITATION

Mindfulness may be simple, but it isn’t always easy. This Guided Meditation class is especially useful for beginners, or a nice change of pace for experienced meditators.

 

Led by an experienced teacher, who offers guidance, insight, reminders of the mechanics of practice as well as periods of silence.

Class may incorporate visualizations and encouragements to remain in the present by focusing on a meditation support like the breathing process, physical sensations or a sound.
