Yoga for Health and Relaxation

2 HOURS

This class offers a basic practice for healthy adults to maintain and improve fitness and posture, increase energy and stamina, develop confidence and trust in their bodies, increase mindfulness, learn to relax, and improve sleep. Beginners as well as experienced practitioners are welcome to join this mindful yet playful class, which includes movement, breath work, stillness, mindfulness, and relaxation.


Community Flow Yoga

1½ HOURS

This community (donation-based) class is appropriate for students who are active or athletic but would like a slower-paced class. It is ideal for those who are new to yoga, recovering from an injury, or interested in alignment. The sequences allow space for students to increase strength as well as work with the breath to develop flexibility and relaxation. This class allows for everyone in the community to participate while encouraging an individualized practice. 


This mix of bootcamp, HIIT, core fitness, functional training, and Vinyasa flow epitomizes the full body workout. The focus of the class and teacher will change from week to week, giving participants the opportunity to cross train throughout the session with guidance from experienced teachers with diverse backgrounds.

Neighborhood Ballet

1 HOUR and
15 minutes

NOT for prima ballerinas, this community (donation-based) class is open to all levels and offers a traditionally structured but gentle ballet practice in a fun and nonjudgmental atmosphere. Perfect for adults who have studied some ballet in the past, Neighborhood Ballet provides a space where students can move and progress at their own pace and focus on individual areas of interest, such as flexibility, fitness, alignment, balance, strength, and artistry. 80s-style leos and legwarmers recommended but not required! 


In this year-long progressive curriculum, new and continuing students will refine ballet basics and learn more complex steps and sequences. Self-analysis will be encouraged and will help build confidence and body awareness. Students will begin to develop correct habits of muscle memory in posture and placement and will continue to build strength and flexibility while improving technique. It is recommended, but not required, that beginner students take at least 2 classes offered at this level as well as Pilates for Young Dancers.

It is recommended, but not required, that intermediate students take at least 2 classes offered at this level as well as Pilates for Young Dancers. This class is also available as a drop-in for intermediate-level adults.

This eight-week somatic experience involves deep, contemplative work. It is embodied practice that invites the Mover to listen to the body and to move organically and intuitively. There is no script, no music or prescribed movement, and the Mover moves with closed eyes. The role of the Witness is to simply watch the mover and to contain the movement space. The dialogue between the Mover and the Witness will be explored in this eight-week session. It is within the dialogue that healing can occur, that transpersonal moments are inspired, and that creativity can flow!  

Authentic Movement

1½ HOURS
