Moksha yoga is a dynamic system of postures and breathing exercises specifically designed to be practiced in a heated room (37C to 39C). Moksha classes are intended to open, strengthen and detoxify the entire body, while calming the mind and reduces stress. The heat allows for deep, safe stretching and promotes detoxification of the skin, blood and muscles through sweat. Though this class is based on a series of 40 poses, no two classes are the same. The series is the basic foundation and each teacher adds their own spice. Both standing and seated poses are practiced, giving a balanced cardiovascular practice. The traditional 40 posture series is done in a 90 minute class, though there are 60 & 75 minute condensed versions on our schedule.
Suitable for all levels, including absolute beginners to the practice of yoga.
In this class the Moksha sequence is linked together with vinyasa flows. Emphasis will be on the synergy between breath and movement to help you deepen your practice. This class is always moving, and is set at a quicker pace than a regular Moksha class. It is great for upper body strengthening and improving cardiovascular health.
Absolute beginners new to yoga are encouraged to feel comfortable with the standard Moksha series first before trying flow.

The regular Moksha series acts as a frame for the class, and more advanced postures and sequences give the class a challenging and dynamic flavour. Each Level 2 instructor adds their own flare, thus no two Level 2 class will be the same. Expect longer holds, more meditation, exploration of pranayma (breathing techniques), advanced concepts, and a longer final Savasana (10-15 minutes). Prepare to get sweaty and have fun! This class is not for beginners new to the practice of yoga. Some yoga and meditation experience is recommended, and beginners are encouraged to feel very comfortable with the standard Moksha practice first before trying Moksha Level 2.
Yin yoga is deep and divine inner practice of long held mostly seated postures to help release tension in the connective tissues of the body, to balance the energetic system, increase flexibility, and allow us to look deep within. Yin calls on one to observe, allow and surrender to the sensations and emotions that are released from deep inside the body by staying connected to a deep breath, a steady mind and a courageous heart. By cultivating a deep meditative state, one can rest in a deep grounded quality and stimulate the flow of “Chi” (life force) through the meridians of the body.
