BIPOC* Yoga for Healing
Yoga is recognized as having numerous health benefits but is often practices in "race-evasive" ways, ones where race, racism, and intersecting injustices are often ignored, in largely white spaces. This donation-based class provides yoga practice that sustains a traditional commitment to yoga's roots while also building an explicit discussion of recognition and healing from racism and its intersecting oppressions. The * is in recognition that people of color experience intersecting oppressions (e.g. sexism, ableism, cis-heteropatriarchy) that make them even more vulnerable to societal and interpersonal inequities.
This class is meant to evoke a deep sense of self-love. A one hour heated class that includes breathing practice (pranayama) with a well-rounded mix of sun salutations, standing and balancing postures, twists, backbends, forward bends and inversions. Practice will end with a guided deep relaxation (Savasana) to seal in the benefits of yoga.
This class is a one hour Kundalini class that includes breathwork, meditation, movement, and chanting/singing. Kundalini yoga is known as the Yoga of Awareness. Every part of the practice has a purpose leading to a bigger purpose which is meditation. Kundalini consciously works with all of the elements. We are a union of all of them.
Wearing white clothing is encouraged as it is believed to ward off negative energy and extend your aura. This class is not heated and is accessible for all bodies.
A one hour adapted Primary Series Ashtanga Yoga class. Ashtanga yoga is a moving meditation focused on breath and precision. Developed by the late Pattabhi Jois, Ashtanga yoga is a vigorous style of yoga that incorporates set sequences or series of postures where the breath is linked with movement.
There are six levels of sequences or series in Ashtanga yoga, including the Primary Series, Secondary Series, and four levels of Advanced Series. A newcomer would typically begin with the Primary Series and progress once they've memorized and mastered the sequence.
The energetic nature of all the series leads to a cleansing of the body through heat, which enhances circulation, improves joint pain, carries impurities away from the body, and builds strength.
A one hour donation-based yoga class featuring a variety of new instructors ready to share from their lineage and truth. This class is mildly heated and students are encouraged to offer feedback to help these new teachers hone their skill.

We use external heat as a tool for transformation. The challenge of putting your body into a pose in a 95-degree room creates an environment for transformation. Inside this challenge, you learn to focus on breath, drishti and on staying in the moment of physical challenge. When life turns up the heat, yoga teaches us to focus and stay calm.
Our heat is provided by infrared radiant heat panels. The panels radiate sun-like warmth to indoor spaces rather than heating the air. The panels are healthier than traditional forms of heat as they don't blow dust or allergens. The heat is safe, clean, low cost energy that is friendly to people and the environment.
