Hot, warm and not so warm classes to mix and match!
SHY Class Descriptions:
SHY offers different classes with varying levels of heat or no heat. The heat level does not dictate the challenge level in any given class. As always, our teachers offer a variety within the class, will give options and modifications for those newer to yoga or recovering from injury. Each of our teachers bring a different training, yoga philosophy, personality and energy to any given class. Variety is the spice of life! That also proves true for our yoga practice! The more variety of styles and teachers you take, the more your body moves in different ways to open up and become stronger, leaner, more flexible, challenged, balanced and adaptable in Mind, Body and Soul. Enjoy the Journey!!

This class incorporates Asanas (yoga postures) from various lineages into a “Vinyasa” (continuous flow) style. It flows from one posture to another in a harmonious manner that creates a meditation in motion.All Vinyasa classes will feel unique to the teachers training's, personalities and Yogic philosophies. Modifications for all levels will be offered in any class. It combines upper body strength, flexibility and a cardio challenge that is fun and rewarding. Each teacher will always have their personal spin and personality added to the class but expect variations of Sun Salutations leading you through standing postures, seated postures and flows.
This class combines the power of vinyasa with the safety of effective alignment to build muscle tone along with ﬂexibility. Using the heat in the room, combined with breath work to light our "inner ﬁre", the muscles open up and help the body's energy to ﬂow continuously. Once body alignment is established and our core body stabilized we will allow the energy we have created in the room and the music to take us deeper into the ﬂow. Using the breath to guide us naturally, we will eventually let go of the mind and trust our bodies to move and ﬂow on our yoga mats. Power Flow is a class that allows you to learn, grow and try things you've never tried before.
This class will lead you through an hour of various asana's (yoga postures) to get the juices flowing. Expect to see a little bit of everything in this hour flow from seated, standing, balancing and floor postures with little seeds of Yoga philosophy sprinkled in. You will still have a mindful rhyme and reason to the peak of the class and consciously bringing you down to deep relaxation. Take an hour out of your crazy day to quiet the mind and strengthen the body. Power hour yoga will get you in & out feeling rejuvenated, awakened, refreshed.
The idea of integrating ballet with group fitness was first introduced in 1967 by Lotte Berk, a former ballet dancer and instructor who, after sustaining a back injury, created Barre as a rehabilitative form of exercise to help her recover from her injury and stay in shape. From here the fusion of ballet movements, pilates and yoga have all inspired what we know as a Barre class. This is a fun, fast paced but low impact hour. You will utilize small movements and contractions in repetition to create long and lean muscles, a small contraction of the muscle will make muscle fibers contract rather than expand to create this look. This is a very core-centric work out with emphasis on the bottom, inner and outer thighs and arms, giving us an overall head to toe workout. Barre is a natural compliment to your Yoga practice as it will make you very core conscious which in turn will help you in all aspects of your asana practice. You will not need a yoga mat for this, all other equipment is at the studio, it is suggested to wear a pair of sticky socks. If you don't have sticky socks we sell them at the studio!
Turn your world upside down in this all levels class. We’ll spend our hour exploring inversions, starting with intentional warm ups, activating exercises, and strength work. The experience will be tailored to each individual in the room, hence class will be unique in what we will explore. No inversion experience required. Come play!
Hot Core Fusion
Hot Core Fusion is a powerful vinyasa class created to stretch and strengthen with more focus on isolated core work than the average flow class. This energetic practice incorporates sequences that become familiar to students, but also incorporates variations to modify, intensify, and challenge the body by altering the pace or duration of poses and the frequency that they are repeated.
Hot Yoga Series
In this invigorating class, the room is heated to a warmer temperature to allow a deeper release and to avoid injury. It is designed from the many postures from the hot yoga lineage in Calcutta, India developed by Bishnu Ghosh. In this class, postures are done in a systematic way (particular sequencing will depend on your teacher and students in the class). Rather then moving through all the postures with transitions we will focus more on the balancing, strength and stamina in our standing and floor series.
Your muscles will be stretched and contracted to improve circulation to the joints and body. This series of postures works against gravity to strengthen the bones. The magic of this class is that everyone is practicing the same posture at different levels of ability, receiving the same benefits. There is an exact position for everyone at every level, which our trained instructors will help you find. You will work every muscle, bone, system, and cell of the body BONES TO SKIN! A total body workout that is great for the beginner, intermediate and advanced practitioner. A 75 minute class will go through 2 sets of each posture and a 60 minute class will do one set of each posture.
Stretch & Restore
What a way to end your day! A class suitable for all levels. This class will do exactly what it says, give you a good stretch and restore the body, mind and soul. The teacher will weave in and out of more stretching postures to calm the body down from your busy day. This may be with basic Sun Salutations, more Yin style postures or any general movement to allow the mind to settle and the body to start to let go and surrender in to the meat of the class which will be Restorative Postures. Restorative postures revive your vital energy…they have a calming, healing and have a soothing entity. Restorative Yoga is a calm and healing practice where the nervous system is pacified and tonified by holding postures for longer periods with the use of props. Restorative Yoga is ideal for calming the mind, recovering from illness and replenishing your vital energy.
