Avita Yoga consists of subtle movements that work toward easing the body’s aging process. It is an approach to yoga that specializes in treating injuries, chronic pain, stiffness and hyper flexibility.From the moment we are born, our bodies begin to age. We each age differently depending on our karma and life circumstances. Avita Yoga brings areas of rigidity to light so we can focus our efforts on them to slow down the aging process and create more freedom in mind and body. The goal is to remain healthy and as pain-free as possible for as long as possible. This is the central approach to Avita Yoga. Best when practiced at least two times per week, it is a system and methodology that pays close attention to each individual body. It works for students of all ages, abilities and degrees of mobility. It is truly a yoga for every body.
Limited to five students, the Avita Primer provides individualized attention while utilizing the healing energy of a small group.

The practice of Kundalini Yoga, handed down by Yogi Bhajan, works to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, and teaches you to harness the energy of the mind and the emotions. While Kundalini incorporates the use asana, mudra, pranayama, mantra (sound current) and meditation, each class has a particular focus which means techniques can vary over time. Suited for all levels, some classes are physically demanding, while others require more mental stamina. The ultimate purpose of Kundalini Yoga however, is to foster deep meditation and to elevate one’s consciousness and awareness. Come move your body, play and laugh! Connect with your breath, clear your mind and elevate your spirit! All are welcome—regardless of age, fitness level and experience.
Restorative yoga uses long, nurturing postures along with supportive props to relax and restore the body. This class is appropriate for all levels and body types—perfect for anyone wanting to slow down and soften.
These classes are designed for the student who appreciates a flowing sequence of poses at a slower more contemplative pace. Class often begins and ends with more floor work which helps the body prepare for a flowing practice. While each teacher brings their own flavor to the classroom, Vinyasa 1 is tailored toward the beginning student interested in developing a flowing yoga practice.
The warm vinyasa class is heated, but not hot. This class is for those who enjoy a little more external heat and humidity to facilitate a healthy, active sweat. In general, Vinyasa-style yoga classes flow from one pose to the next in synchronicity with the breath. The teacher adds his or her own specialty and perspective on a powerful flow, while the additional layer of warmth in the room helps the body’s tissues relax and release. It also provides a detoxifying release for the body and mind.
This class uses the more passive nature of yoga. Each posture is enjoyed for a longer time (typically 3 to 5 minutes) in a nourishing and supportive manner. With breath as guide, Yin Yoga takes the practitioner deeper in to the body’s connective tissue where it can be unwound and released. This practice is appropriate for all levels and is designed to help you slow down and soften.
