You’ve taken a yoga class and know what a sun salutation is (or you’ve seen one on instagram). Level 1 emphasizes proper alignment and detailed teachings of the transitional movements in Vinyasa classes.
New to yoga?
Take our Beginner Fundamentals Class
You have an understanding of the basic poses and transitional movements of a Vinyasa class (down dog, plank, chaturanga, cobra/upward dog). You’ll get more dynamic sequences with challenging poses, subtle alignment of basic poses, and an introduction to other yoga practices.
Level 2 / 3
You’re a Level 2 or a Level 3 student, or somewhere in between. This is a mixed level class that gives you a challenge when you want one. Variations and modifications offered by the teacher will allow you to practice at your own individual level while keeping with the class flow and energy.
You have a strong, ongoing practice. Here you’ll get more challenging poses and techniques for approaching poses, deeper variations and dynamic sequences. You’ll explore subtler aspects of yoga and yogic practices (bandhas, pranayama, chanting, mudra, restorative, therapeutic, etc).
Yin / Restorative
You want to cultivate a sense of quiet and look within – because, well, New York. These long, actively passive poses on the ground create space in the sheath of connective tissue surrounding the hips. Class ends with breathwork and a long savasana.
Gentle / Restorative
Completely passive, no aggressive. A gentle, yet deep practice that opens the hips, legs and shoulders to alleviate stiffness and stress. This slower, meditative class uses bolsters, blankets, blocks and chairs to organize the body in a way that calms your nervous system and relaxes your entire being.
You’re ready to start your yogic journey. This is the best part! This class teaches the basics for people brand new to yoga. Everyone is welcome and there is absolutely no flexibility required. Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to stretch. You can bring a mat or use one of ours. Start yoga today!
Full Hearted Practice
You’re a practitioner who wants to get more into the devotional aspect of yoga. This class is a Devotional Flow inspired by the mood of Bhakti Yoga. Expect some awesome stories from the ancient Vedic texts and Bhakti teachings to energize a sweaty and strong asana practice.
Yoga for Athletes
You’re an athlete who wants to know how specific asanas can strengthen muscles and connective tissue for stability (outer hips, hamstrings) and how to stretch and release overworked areas (quads, psoas, IT band). You’ll also work with physical imbalances to avoid common athletic injuries.
60yr+ Yoga Class
A welcoming class for our 60yr+ crew focusing on strength, flexibility & balance by working with breath & movement. Get supple and stay supple – you are never too old, too stiff, too fat, too thin or too sick to start your yoga practice! This class is $7.
This one is free. Our 60 minute Community classes provide a well rounded practice taught by recent graduates of our Illuminated Journey Teacher Training program. This class is geared toward Level 2 and up – not recommend for total beginners!
Level 1 – Integrate
A different take on a Yogamaya Level 1 class. Up your alignment game with extra emphasis on the individual poses and less vinyasa flow. This class is a great addition to your weekly schedule and will include strong work. Aimed at Level 1 but great for ALL levels.
Mats are included with class packages
Mat rentals are $1 cash and $2 cc
Rules & Requests
Time: We have a 5-minute late policy. Give yourself time to sign in and change. Our desire is to accommodate all kind souls, but if you are late, the class may already be full. If you are granted late entry, enter quietly without disrupting others. If you need to leave early, tell the teacher before class and follow his/her guidelines. Please inform the teacher of an emergency situation and come up with a solution together.
Space: Practice awareness when placing your mat and give space to yourself and others. It helps to stagger the mats so the front of the mats are not lined up.
Shoes: Please leave by the studio entrance. If you want them with you we recommend putting them in a bag and storing on the shelf in the practice room.
Stuff: Please store your valuables on the shelves in the yoga room and not by your mat or in the coatroom. No tech use allowed in practice rooms before, during or after class (a.k.a. ever). Please put your phone on silent (not vibrate) and in your bag.
Thank you for helping us preserve the sacred space of the practice rooms and overall yoga studio vibe.
