Hot Yoga is a detoxifying practice in an intentionally heated room (38-40° C). Expect to perspire! Hot yoga is an ideal practice for flushing the body of toxins, increasing flexibility, and building core strength. Each class is conducted facing a mirror, allowing students to observe their progress and easily make adjustments to their alignment. Hot Yoga is a pre-set sequence of asanas, which allows for the practitioner to observe progress over time in a systematic way. All postures can be modified to suit the individual. This series is a cardiovascular workout that strengthens, tones, and stretches the muscles while calming the mind and reducing stress. Regular practice helps improve concentration, balance, endurance, and alleviates fatigue. Hot yoga is not recommended for pregnant women or those with high or low blood pressure.

Basics This is the beginner’s version of our popular Hot (Moksha) class. Explore the subtleties of the Moksha series! While moving mindfully and slowly through the sequence, in depth and detailed alignment instructions with tips on how to modify difficult postures will be offered. Learn how to use props to feel more supported and aligned. Get a solid foundation to your practice.
hot1 Hot 1 is suitable for both beginning and intermediate students. This pre-set sequence of asanas will challenge and invigorate you, helping to find strength you never knew you had. Hot 1 focuses on both upper and lower body strength, balance, and flexibility, as well as safely opening the hips.

hot2 Hot 2 is an intermediate level class. More vinyasa sequencing is added to help build inner fire, and students are taught more challenging poses. Each class has a particular focus such as forward bends, backward bends, or arm balances.
Hot 2 is recommended for experienced students, those who have taken at least 10 classes, and who are interested in a new challenge. NOT SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS

Flow is a dynamic, strengthening practice, combining the movement and breath as well as alignment. The goal is to synchronize the breath and movement, allowing the postures to form around the breath. Flow Yoga uses smooth flowing vinyasa transitions from pose to pose. The heat in Flow Yoga is created from the "inside out" with the use of the ujjayi breath and energetic engagements of the inner musculature of the body (bandhas). Each class is different allowing for a comprehensive exploration and transcendence of the limits of body and mind. Classes may form around a theme such as back bending, hip-opening, or forward folds, or a variety of postures may be combined to challenge and invigorate. Some Flow classes will introduce gentle pranayama (prana = Qi and ayama = expansion) to fill the body with vibrant energy. Flow Yoga is appropriate for any body, in any stage of Yoga practice.

flow1 Ideal for those new to yoga, those rehabilitating from injury, or those wishing for an inward, fluid practice. Most asanas are oriented towards opening and lengthening the muscles, strengthening the spine and toning the internal organs. Great attention to breath and intentional movement is emphasized.

flow2 More energetic and moves at a vibrant and lively pace. More strengthening, standing and arm balancing asanas are included as well as a variety of inversions. Breath and alignment continue to be a focus. Flow 2 is recommended for experienced students, those who have taken at least 10 classes and are interested in a new challenge. NOT SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS

Restorative Yoga is a blissful, gentle, deeply healing and meditative practice. It is ideal for relieving stress and tension and works on the connective tissues and internal systems of the body. All asanas are seated or reclining and maintained for 5-15 minutes each while being deeply supported by props (blankets, bolsters, and blocks) and aromatherapy. Deep deliberate breath is encouraged. These soothing and well-supported poses offer the opportunity to linger quietly while finding space from the activities of life, to savor its simple sweetness. With regular practice, you will be rewarded with the ability to drop with ease into a place of stillness already present and waiting within yourself. Restorative Yoga is an ideal accompaniment to your regular asana practice. SPACE recommends at least one Restorative class per week to balance your personal practice.

Anusara is one of the fastest growing styles of yoga in the world. Anusara means “Flowing with Grace”.  It is a creative, powerful and highly sophisticated style of Hatha yoga combining the strongest features of many traditional systems together with a deep philosophical base. John Friend, one of the greatest authorities of yoga in America, founded Anusara yoga after a lifetime of study with many teachers both in India and the United States. He was a senior, certified Iyengar teacher for many years when he met his spiritual teacher, Gurumayi Chidvilasananda in India. It was from her influence and spiritual guidance that Anusara yoga was born. Anusara uses the “Universal Principles of Alignment” to strengthen and open the body and is highly therapeutic. Working in this way with the body, and from an attitude of always looking for the good, we may open our hearts and minds to realize our fullest potential as people. Anusara is a celebration of heart, which deeply honors each student's unique abilities and limitations. A distinctive feature of Anusara is that within an energetic, playful and transformative flow of postures, we may occasionally pause to learn specific alignment, or work in partners to more safely and clearly deepen the practice. Anusara has one of the most rigorous training and/ certification programs in the world, taking several years to complete. Each certified Anusara teacher has thousands of hours training in yoga alignment and therapeutics, anatomy, history and philosophy, leadership and classroom skills.

Anusara1 All Anusara classes begin with seated meditation, chanting and the weaving of a spiritual theme into class to bring out the deeper meaning of yoga. Students then go through a warm-up sequence, connecting the body and breath through basic postures. A full spectrum of classical postures follows, including standing poses, inversions, backbends, arm balances or hip openers. These are carefully taught with a focus on balancing strength with freedom in a light-hearted practice.

Anusara2 Level two further develops strength and flexibility and refines the basic principles learned in level one. Level two students are introduced to a much more challenging practice with a wide verity of yoga postures designed to deeply shift students on all levels of body, mind and heart.
Students should attend many level one classes before joining a level two class.

Anusara-insp Anusara-inspired classes are lead by a qualified yoga teacher that is in training to become a certified Anusara teacher. The format of Anusara-inspired will be the same as the Anusara level 1 classes.

The Ashtanga Practice
Ashtanga practice is traditionally begun with the Ashtanga Mantra or Invocation.   After chanting Om together, this invocation is done in a call and response manner in Sanskrit.  It is a way to set the tone and intent of the practice.  It is not a requirement in order to attend an Ashtanga class.  If a student wishes to not say this chant they may just remain respectfully silent.  Depending on the level of Ashtanga you are taking, the class is then led through sun salutations and the standing sequence of postures.  Students are then guided to the floor for the seated sequence of postures, the finishing sequence postures and a deep relaxation.
Ashtanga Basics
is highly recommended for beginning students. It will also provide a sound foundation in alignment for experienced students. These classes provide an introduction to the fundamentals of Ashtanga Yoga, its scientific system of linking breath and awareness to movement. The classes will slowly examine the cardinal directions of the Sun Salutation and their relationship to all further variation in the Primary Series. Attending these classes will help to build strength, flexibility, and concentration. Each class will end with a meditative, deep relaxation. This class will give you the confidence to attend Ashtanga classes anywhere in the world .

are for students who have had some experience with Ashtanga, for those who have completed an Introductory workshop or those who are unable to attend the Introductory workshop.  The entire Primary Series is not taught in these classes and a brief explanation of Ashtanga will be given in the beginning.  These classes are designed to help beginning and continuing students to build and maintain a strong foundation for their Ashtanga practice.


is an opportunity for new members to try Mysore style Ashtanga. If you have been practicing yoga for 3 months and have been afraid to try Mysore style then this is the perfect class. In a very supportive environment new students are encouraged to remember the primary sequence. Mysore class is a very good opportunity to work one on one with an experienced teacher. This will accelerate your education.
(self practice)
Pattabhi Jois lives and teaches in Mysore, India. Traditionally this is how he teaches classes. It is a silent self-practice in which a student begins the practice without being led verbally. Each student has an individualized practice, which is developed and overseen by the teacher. Postures are learned or practiced one by one, and as they are mastered, the student gradually adds more postures in the series. The instructor gives hands-on adjustments or verbal cues. Normally Mysore classes are two to three hours in length and a student enters with enough time to complete their practice. It does not necessarily mean that the practice is two or three hours long. This class is more appropriate for students with a practice of Ashtanga but it is possible to begin the practice slowly in a Mysore class. It is in this class that a student will receive in-depth instruction and guidance in individual postures. This is the class where one would begin the study of the Intermediate Series (2nd Series) once proficient at Primary Series.

Hatha Yoga
Explore the very basics of hatha yoga along with simple yogic breath work and a guided deep relaxation to finish. This class is perfect for those who are new to yoga or just want a gentle stretch.

Power Yoga
Taught in a warm room (30 degrees), this class requires focus, awareness, and high energy.  Synchronized breathing combined with strong, flowing movements create a hot, invigorating practice. Different from other styles, Power Yoga is based on a choreographed, fixed sequence of poses (asanas). These asanas flow into one another, creating a dynamic, core strenthening experience.  The class begins with a series of standing and balancing asanas to open the body, release tension, and move energy; followed by a slow, deliberate cooling sequence to bring you back to your center and natural peaceful state. This class will help you to build strength, flexibility, and mental clarity.  Power Yoga is suitable for beginners who want a challenge and students with a regular practice. 

All classes at SPACE conclude with a deep resting period on the back in Savasana (corpse pose). In the stillness of Savasana, our bodies integrate and assimilate what we have just prac ticed, and we let go deeply. It is a time to pause and savor the sweetness of life, while connecting to the wonder of our natural state. Through this practice we begin a process of peeling away all the layers that keep us from expressing our selves and our lives fully.

Yin Yoga
This class is a meditative, reflective practice that requires receptivity with little pushing or strain. Yin Yoga applies long, passive holds (no standing poses) to deeply penetrate the body's bones and connective tissue. It raises one’s vitality, increases flexibility and mental energy, and is calming for the mind and spirit. The Yin style of practice targets the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis, lower belly and spine. The essence of Yin is yielding- learning how to let go of struggle and how to allow things to unfold naturally. Your Yang practice will be enhanced by balancing it with this contemplative style. Students of all levels and yoga styles can practice Yin Yoga.
