WHAT IS VITAL YOGA?

VITAL YOGA is an excellent way to improve flexibility and overall fitness. Yoga is a great compliment to climbing, and vice versa, which is why yoga classes are included in our memberships. We offer a variety of hour long classes in styles accessible to all skill levels. See class descriptions below.

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Slow & Steady
This accessible class is a great starting point for your yoga practice and complement to other more vigorous activities. We’ve slowed down the pace a bit to allow more emphasis on proper alignment and adequate breathing. Longer posture holds will work on flexibility and static strength. All levels welcome.

Vinyasa
A moderate vinyasa flow class, linking breath with movement at a more vigorous pace. We will build heat in the body to open key muscle groups and build strength. All levels welcome.  

Yin
This class combines longer holds and use of props to help release lactic acid build up and scar tissue in the muscles. Similar to a deep tissue massage, this class promises to elongate your muscles and help release any aches and pains. Perfect for any athlete! All levels welcome.

Power
A higher intensity vinyasa class set at an athletic pace offering more intermediate posture variations, options for arm balances and inversions. Be prepared to have fun and try something new. Knowledge of yoga basics is recommended.

Power + Yin Fusion
A 75 minute Vinyasa Flow class set at an athletic pace with core and strength training drills, as well as options for more advanced posture variations. The last 20 minutes of class will incorporate more restorative poses to compliment the vigorous movement earlier in class. Some classes will have co-instructor designated purley for assisting throughout class.  Opting in for assists is optional. All Levels Welcome.

Fundamentals of Acro Yoga
This class is great for anyone interested in acro play and would like some guidance to grow their practice. Geared towards beginners and intermediates, we will cover basic poses, transition, skills, and flows in groups based on your experience. No experience or partner necessary! All Levels Welcome

Advanced Power Series
A fast-paced Power Vinyasa class with a vigorous flow, core and strength training drills, as well as options for more advanced posture variations. Each month we'll explore a new advanced pose with the opportunity to build your practice over the four weeks. Knowledge of yoga basics is required. No registration required, however, the number of students will be capped at 22 per class.

YOGA ETIQUETTE

Arriving to Class
Please make it habit to arrive to the studio on time or early in order to find a spot for your mat, place personal belongings in cubbies, and allowing a few extra minutes for yourself in seated meditation to “center in”. Coming in late, is disruptive to other students and to the flow of class. 

Be Mindful
We all have busy and often hectic lives and some days more so than others. Whether it’s work, family, traffic or friends; please be sure to leave that bad energy at the door making room for new positive energy to fill you up and allowing you the opportunity to let go.

Electronics
Please silence all cell phones before setting up your mat. Ill timed ringers ruin the focus of everyone in the room.

Make Space for Others
Provide enough space for fellow yogis, by leaving personal belongings in the cubbies. Move your mat if more space is needed and make sure everyone can see themselves in the mirror.

Cleanliness 
Make sure you are practicing proper hygiene before class. It is recommended that you bathe before and after practicing yoga. We have mat cleaner to use if you borrowed a mat.

 

Advanced Movement Workshop | Saturday, Sept 21st | 12-3pm

This class will cover the six directions of movement and how they relate to Yoga Asana, Rock Climbing and even daily life. These fundamental patters also known as "Degrees of Freedom" can describe any object's motion through space in our three dimensional reality. Expect to explore your body's ranges of motion through open and closed chain joint mobility, dynamic Yoga Asana flows that target core strength through each direction of movement, to sweat, learn and have fun! Optional to bring a snack and a notebook, mats and other props will be provided.
