SPA Yoga®

SPA Yoga® is a 60 min slow-flow, floor-based, whole-body sensory experience based on Fluid Yoga® sequencing. By engaging all five of the senses with soft light, soothing music, and aromatherapy, SPA Yoga® aligns practitioners with the inner wisdom of deep relaxation. The physical practice takes time to open the body’s subtle energy and prepares students to experience new depths of awareness in an extended, guided savasana, guided meditation, or Yoga Nidra.

Benefits: relieve stress and anxiety, heal and restore the body and mind

Yin Yoga

Yin is a complementary practice to more active styles of movement supporting maintenance of mobility, healing, and an opportunity to explore mindfulness and the subtler aspects of a personal practice. Working with gravity, students move gently through poses, holding each pose for several minutes. This slow pace allows the pose to work within the deeper tissues, increase awareness of body sensations, and focus the mind. Yin classes focus on the lower body; especially the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, and lower spine.


Benefits: increase flexibility and range of motion, relieve stress and anxiety, support healing and mindfulness

The class uses smooth, pliable Nadi Balls® to target specific areas of the body and serve as a vital source of biofeedback. Northern Virginia magazine writes, “The balls work into the fascia lines, creating openness and encouraging correct alignment, and students can feel how sensations are connected throughout the body.”

What you get is a whole-body experience that relieves tension, boosts the immune system, and improves circulation.
