Classes

26 Hot 90: Hot 26-Bikram Style: A sequence of 26 beginning yoga poses practiced in a heated studio between 100 & 105 degrees and 40% humidity to increase flexibility and flush toxins while stimulating all systems of the body. This practice is suitable for all ages, those new to yoga, recovering from injury or surgery  or looking for a practice that is challenging both mentally and physically. This class will promote steady physical progress of strength and flexibility, cultivate mental focus and discipline, and create a foundation for stillness and meditation in motion. This class is 90 minutes in length.

26 Hot 60/75: These classes have the same poses as the 90 minutes with adaptation by the instructor for a little faster paced class.

Family & Kids: We currently do not have any family & kids classes, please check back. A perfect outlet for tuning in and unwinding. Kids will learn challenging postures and a more flowing type of yoga that will help them calm their minds and strengthen their bodies. Partner poses and group games encourage kids to make new friends and sense a feeling of community. We work on building self-confidence and self-awareness. A great class for gaining tools to help deal with stressful situations and everyday life.

FUNdamentals: Yoga FUNdamentals provides a place to focus on the common postures and transitions that lay the foundations for Hatha yoga. Classes will focus on alignment and include imaginative strength building exercises to prepare muscles for the intensity of the major yoga asanas included in a vinyasa flow class. Expect clear instruction and individual assistance as well as music to keep the environment light and playful. :You don’t need to touch your toes in this class …. all you need is an open mind heart.

Gentle: For students of any age and experience, who wish to practice gently and relax deeply; recommended for ‘bad backs’ and injuries and ideal for beginners.

Prenatal/Post-Natal: We currently do not offer any Prenatal specific classes. Feel free to join us in any other classes we have, our instructors will be happy to offer you modifications to keep you and baby comfortable during your practice. If you have any further questions please feel free to email Rachel, who enjoyed a regular practice through 4 healthy pregnancies @ santoshayogapnw@gmail.com

Vinyasa: Energetic Flow Yoga is a dynamic and energizing class linking breath and movement in creative flow sequences designed to support students to safely approach the next level of postures (inversions, arm balances, more advanced standing balances and back bends) depending on each student’s own individual abilities and interests. Pose options and variations will be provided for students as we move through sequences and core-strengthening poses to help prepare and open the body toward more advanced postures.

Workshops: Check the Workshop page for our upcoming events. Workshops are a great way to explore your yoga practice a little further or explore a new style.

Yin Yang: Yin Yang Yoga incorporates the sweetness and strength of yoga; creating a balance within ourselves through pranayama (breathing techniques), mindful therapeutic movements and Hatha Yoga Asanas (poses).

Yin: In Taoist philosophy, the qualities of Yin are dark, calm, passive and deep. Based on these principles, Yin Yoga uses passive postures held for longer periods of time to allow for deep opening in the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis and spine. Meditation may be used. Yin Yoga can be practiced by any level of student.
