All Levels Yoga Flow
Our backbone class for a regular practice. You can expect a well-rounded flow of postures to address the full body with balanced attention given to both building strength and developing flexibility in muscle groups. The pace of the class is relaxed, sometimes moving with each inhale and exhale, while other times lingering in poses longer. Expect to use props to support you and bring awareness to your action. Of course, each class ends with a long, restorative savasana or resting pose before sending you back into the world.
A yoga series designed for individuals seeking to find strength within the body and practice balance within a safe and supportive environment. This class is gentle on the knees and wrists and utilizes props – blocks, blankets, chairs, walls and floor – to support our postures.
While Gentle Yoga uses a chair for seated positions, along with standing poses, it also uses the floor for work on our hands and knees and in a reclined, relaxing savasana to end the class. Our Chair Yoga classes will remain seated or standing for the whole class, avoiding the use of the floor.
Rise & Shine Yoga
Start your day with a gentle flow to awaken the body and mind. This class will run about 45 minutes at a pace designed for you to stay fresh and clean, followed by a long (~15 minutes) restorative pose and meditation time for individuals to leave at their convenience. Class will wrap with enough time for you to change, grab a coffee and get to school or work on time.
This new class is designed to help you settle into a great night’s sleep. Each week we will decompress our day mentally & emotionally with mindfulness, breath and gratitude practices before using gentle movement to unwind the body. We’ll end with long-held, supported, restorative poses.
We will be utilizing several props for the restorative nature of this class. Students will need a block or two and at least one blanket. Studio participants will be provided a bolster; those practicing at home can use dense pillows or several folded blankets (all cotton is most supportive.)
Looking to add intensity to your mindful movement? Barre at Woven Yoga uses a mix of poses with targeted movement to build strength within minor muscle groups. While this is not a “hot” class, you can expect to sweat! Please bring a towel, a yoga mat, small hand weights (1-3 pounds) and water.

Have you ever wanted to “linger longer” in a pose? Looking for a slower paced counterpart to your workout routine? Join me for an inquiry into the benefits of Yin Yoga. We will gently stress the connective tissues of our bodies while working to calm the mind and focus on the sensations we uncover when we give ourselves time to find stillness in each pose.
Slow Flow for Newbies
This is an introduction and practice of the basic postures and transitions of a fundamentals yoga class. We take a slower pace so that your mind and body can connect the movement without adding the challenge of speed. Because the brain does its best with repetition, the class will be consistent, with some variation, so you can watch your progress and blossom in your yoga practice.
