Yoga Centered is known for offering high QUALITY yoga practice. This means:

•       Knowledgeable, authentic teachers

•       Variety in the styles we offer (from "mindfully athletic" to quiet and meditative)

•       Skillful alignment that supports your safety in class and re-aligns your body over time to a permanent optimal posture

•       Intelligent sequencing that promotes you accessing your full potential

•       Acknowledging and utilizing the true power of the breath–teaching specific techniques that help keep you strong or surrendering in your practice (and less stressed in your life)

•       Encouragement & support for taking yoga "off the mat" and into your everyday life

Build strength and stamina as you connect the flow of your breath to the flow of dynamic movement. You can expect a safe and artful approach to sequencing, a mindful pace, purposeful challenges and the opportunity (and guidance) to learn over time and modify for your own needs. Basic flow focuses on accessible and foundational yoga poses. Often, more time is dedicated to exploring the details of alignment than in an all-levels yoga flow class. Great for beginners, great for the seasoned yogi too.. beginners mind is the key to growth and expansion!

Join Gretchen Andrews on Sunday nights from 7-8:15pm for Candlelight Restorative Yoga, a practice that will nurture you physically, mentally, and emotionally.
This gentle practice, done by candle light and with the aid of props, will allow both the body and mind to restore itself to a relaxed state. A restorative yoga practice can activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which enables automatic control of the body… Constant practice of restorative yoga will make your body less vulnerable to stress-related illnesses and help you achieve optimal health.

Family Yoga presents an opportunity to cultivate emotional and physical bonding within your family. This all-levels free flow class includes postures for the whole family, including age- and intensity level-appropriate variations to accommodate all of the students in the class, all while maintaining a playful sense of fun. The physical movements introduced in this class will familiarize students to the true meaning of yoga: union, community, expression and integrity for self, while strengthening the bond between family and community! Come as you are, crying babies, wild toddlers and ornery teenagers welcome!
Flow Yoga Build strength and stamina as you connect the flow of your breath to the flow of dynamic movement. You can expect a safe and artful approach to sequencing, a mindful pace, purposeful challenges and the opportunity (and guidance) to learn over time and modify for your own needs. Beginners are welcome to join, though this is our most complicated (and most athletic) traditional yoga class type and nervous beginners may wish to attend a Beginners Yoga Series (make this a link to the workshop) or basic yoga flow, therapeutics, gentle yoga or relax deeply first. Also known as “vinyasa” yoga.
Prenatal Yoga focuses on strengthening the spiritual, emotional and physical bond between your body and your baby preparing you for labor and childbirth. Yoga allows you to reconnect with the body and breath while prenatal and postnatal yoga focuses on inspiring and nurturing you in a community of women while creating an environment of support for you to balance and restore the physical needs of the new mother and baby.
Some yoga poses are a little yummier than others, and if yoga were a buffet, restorative postures would most definitely be at the dessert table. These soothing and well-supported poses offer us the opportunity to linger quietly for a few moments and savor the simple sweetness of life. These postures are usually deeply supported by blankets, blocks, and bolsters, and are held for several minutes at a time. At minimum, you will discover a rich and deep state of relaxation that will calm and restore your whole being!
Slow and gentle yoga with a therapeutic approach that focuses on bringing mobility to the joints, improving balance and coordination. Expect a buffet of props to be used…chairs, blocks, blankets, straps, it’s all fair game. Recommended for the older adult but all are welcome!
All traditional yoga classes at Yoga Centered are designed to be therapeutic but in this class you will specifically use yoga to address different physical issues you may be dealing with. Strengthen your back and bring mobility into your spine. Learn poses and stretches to help alleviate back pain, hip pain, knee pain, shoulder pain and increase mobility and build strength gently and slowly over time.
This class is designed to establish balance in body, mind and spirit: a blend between our Flow Yoga and Relax Deeply classes. The first 45 minutes will follow a traditional vinyasa, as we do in Flow class…this is the active Yang phase, designed to move and stretch your body, pay attention to the condition of your breath, and focus on your mind. We will finish with a 30-minute Yin phase, including slow holds and restorative poses to alleviate deeply-seated tension in muscles and fascia, develop a fuller, softer breath, and calm the mind. Leave class feeling rejuvenated!
