Yoga.

Experience the connection of breath and movement with options for every level of practice from gentle/restorative to active vinyasa flow yoga.

What is Yoga?

Yoga is a physical, mental, and energetic practice that traces its origins over thousands of years to ancient India. It’s an increasingly popular activity in the United States due to its combination of embodied movement, breath connection and mindfulness. The multidimensional benefits of yoga and its accessibility to all fitness levels make it an ideal practice for just about anybody. A regular yoga practice, as evidenced in medical research, can: increase your flexibility, muscle strength and tone, energy and vitality, support your health, reduce stress, alleviate pain and so much more. Scroll down to find the perfect class for you, wherever you are on your journey to health.

Our Yoga Classes

Ananda Shala is a Vinyasa studio (literally translated from Sanskrit as 'connection'), which means that our classes include poses that flow seamlessly and rhythmically, delivering a strengthening, whole-body practice with deep release. Our alignment-focused approach ensures a safe but enlivening adventure for everyone. Classes are labeled to help you select the perfect class for you. All Levels classes are perfect for beginner to intermediate students, or those returning to the mat after a time away. Active Flow classes are intermediate; options are offered to increase or decrease the challenge to suit your practice. Power Yoga classes are active flows with options for increasing the challenge of your practice. If a yoga class is listed as ‘hot,’ the classroom is kept at approximately 80-90 degrees to allow your muscles to relax and open as well as to allow for greater detoxification. Class participants for all classes must be 15 years of age or older. If you are asked to leave a class for any reason, a refund will not be issued.

*Please note: All private appointments must be booked by emailing info@shalawellness.com. A representative will get back to you quickly to book your appointment.

Restorative Yoga

Sink into a nourishing, nurturing practice Relax and Restore Yoga. You will be supported by blankets, pillows and bolsters in relaxing poses as your instructor guides you into deep states of meditation. Relax and Restore Yoga is a wonderful way to incorporate Self Care into your routine.

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a passive style of practice that targets the connective tissues such as the tendons, ligaments, bones and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of yoga practice (that targets the muscles of the body). We will learn to be still in a pose and stay for a while to create space in the body. These long gentle stretches promote better circulation as well as flexibility in otherwise inflexible areas of the body. Class participants for all classes must be 15 years of age or older.

Prenatal yoga is for women of all fitness levels; however, we would like all mama’s-to-be to speak with their doctors before beginning their yoga practice.
