• Sivananda Yoga:
Sivananda is a classical style of hatha yoga. This sequence of 12 basic asanas are practiced so that each asana prepares you for the next. Forward bends are followed by backbends and emphasis is placed on synchronizing the breath with the movements. This class will also include some modern varifications such as “release of the Psoas” and is suitable for all levels.
• Vinyasa Yoga:
Vinyasa yoga denotes a flowing, dynamic form of yoga, connected to breath or pranayama in which yoga and mudra transitions are embodied as linkages within and between asana. Indeed, this process entrains the mind stream with the body mind of the aspirant, and fuels the samādhi of Mystery in the adept; in affirmation that no value judgment between the importance or ascendancy of the asana or the transitions between asana is held. This view of non-judgement is grounded, founded and based in the Shunyata Doctrine which informed the development of vinyasa styles. Vinyasa is also employed as a noun to describe the sequence of poses that are performed between Adho Mukha Svanasana or Downward Facing Dog as part of a Surya Namaskara or Sun Salutation sequence. Though this is more correctly termed half-vinyasa as full-vinyasa returns to complete standing asana or positions. (wikipedia.org)
• Amrit Yoga:
Amrit yoga connects yoga practice with its ancient roots and fundamental principals that are at the core of all branches of yoga. By adding the mental and spiritual disciplines of Raja Yoga, inwardly focused attention and meditative awareness, Amrit Yoga combines the strengths of Hatha Yoga and Raja Yoga into one system.
Amrit Yoga uses the body as an entry point to explore, experience and release physical and emotional blocks that prevent us from tapping into the source of the infinite potential within. Amrit Yoga cultivates inward focus and meditative awareness along with the practice of postures and pranayamas (the breath).
The practice of Amrit Yoga has the power to engage you totally, absorb you completely, and integrate you fully in your body, mind, heart and soul. It empowers you to enter the experience of unity and ecstasy which is integral to the experience of yoga. (amrityoga.org)
• Guided Yoga Nidra:
It requires neither years of difficult practice nor intellectual understanding of its mystical powers. All it requires is focus of attention and an abiding trust in the process of revelation through direct experience. It is a unique combination of alert awareness and deep relaxation. Yoga Nidra is one of the most effective and least explored techniques to unleash the power within. It relieves us from the stress of daily life and reveals the deeper meaning of our lives. The literal translation of nidra is sleep. However, Yoga Nidra is a dynamic state, not the unconscious sleep of nighttime. While ordinary sleep can renew the body and refresh the mind, it cannot alter your unconscious programming. (amrityoga.org)

• Yin Yoga:
Yin Yoga is a style of yoga in which poses (Asanas) are held for longer periods in order to focus on the joints, and connective tissues, to provide deep stretch to muscles, and to promote a balanced approach to yoga practice. Yin Yoga combines the meridians of acupuncture with yoga for deep, prolonged stretch to promote healthy joints and body. Yin yoga can be challenging due to the long holds in the postures (asanas) but there are many health benefits for increasing flexibility and well being. All yoga practitioners should include yin yoga in their regular practice for the benefits it provides.

• Healing Sound Bath Meditation (1st Thursday of Every Month at 7pm):
A “Sound Bath Meditation” is a very therapeutic form of meditation because you are literally “bathed” in sound waves. As these sound waves wash over your body they can take you into the theta brainwave state which leads to relaxation, healing, & deep meditation.This type of meditation is wonderful for all types of meditators, but especially for beginners because the sounds & tones give your mind to hold onto besides the endless chatter of your inner dialogue.During this event, Meditation Teacher, Anthony Profeta, uses the sounds of Himalayan Singing Bowls, Crystal Singing Bowls, and other instruments to create an experience & atmosphere which gives you the opportunity to wash away your stress, fill you with a sense of inner peace and joy, and bring healing to your body, mind & soul. Cost $15
• Chakra Balancing: Guided Bowl & Mantra Meditation (one Saturday of Every Month at 1pm):
The seven chakras are the body’s major energy centers through which our life energy flows. A blockage or imbalance in one or several of these centers can lead to mental, emotional, physical &/or spiritual ailments. But sound, through the use of instruments & voice, has been used for thousands of years as a way to purify, align, & heal the body.
In this meditation, Meditation Teacher, Anthony Profeta, guides us to healing and attunement by playing the crystal bowls to help remove any blocked energy & then as we move one by one up through the chakra system he will introduce the Bija (seed) Mantras which the group will chant together to help align, balance, and purify our 7 energy centers.
The bowls & mantras together will create a one-of-a-kind meditative experience in which we’ll be immersed in sound waves, pure frequencies, & vocal tones that can allow for great healing to occur. Cost: $20
• Restorative Yoga Story:
Totally relax into guided, fully supported restorative poses laying comfortably on your mat with yummy blankets and bolsters while the amazing book “How Yoga Works” by Geshe Michael Roach is read aloud to you. This wonderful book shares insight into the yoga sutras in the form of a sweet and seemingly simple story.
“The secrets of how yoga really works to make us truly whole are revealed here in a delightful story based on how these precious teachings reached Tibet from their home in India over a thousand years ago.
