Vinyasa Movement with Breath:
Vinyasa means “movement with breath.” Vinyasa classes include sequences of postures (Asanas), breathing practices to clear and purify the body and some reflection. Practitioners of all levels will be challenged and healed through this all-levels class taught with attention to each person and a focus on conveying the most effective practices of yoga to the room.
In Yin yoga, poses are held for a longer duration with the objective of improving flexibility and restoring a fuller range of motion. The practice accesses connective tissues—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments. You will leave feeling elongated, relaxed and renewed with the joints happier and revitalized. This class is appropriate for anyone, including brand new beginners. It is also a strong introduction to moving meditation.
“Asana” means “Posture” in yoga. It is pronounced “Ahh-sah-nah with emphasis on the ‘Ahh.'” You will experience a collection of postures designed to accomplish opening of the body, increased flexibility, strengthening of the muscles, tuning of all of the systems of the body (cardiovascular, nervous, digestive, etc.) and energize you for the day. We teach to all levels and you will feel supported with modifications and postures that suit where you are at in your practice.
Mindful Flow classes bring a slower pace and a focus on breath to traditional vinyasa classes. Similar to gentle yoga, practitioners can expect a connective and enriching experience that leaves them with a deep stretch, an expansive breath practice and a restorative finish. Great for all levels.
Primary Series Practice:
One of the most enriching and gratifying sequences for any practitioner, this class follows the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga, which is the template for the great majority of yoga classes practiced in the West. This class will introduce practitioners to a very traditional and meaningful practice with both familiar and lesser practiced postures. Practitioners are encouraged to practice this regularly, as it is highly therapeutic for the entire body, opens the hips and back body, unites movement and breath and familiarizes students with the postures over time.
Summer Sunrise Sessions:
Wake up and get energized, open and excited for your day in our Summer Sunrise Sessions. Each class interweaves breath, movement, postures and special offerings like aromatherapy, energetics and chakra balancing. You’ll walk out into the day present, healthier and feeling great. This class has lots of options and is great for any level, beginners to advanced.
Fun with Fundamentals (Best for Beginners):
A light-hearted class with workshop-style explanations, a physical practice designed for all levels and an exploration of some of the fundamentals of yoga. This class is also appropriate for new or relatively new (practiced less than 100 times) students that mindfully introduces you to the practice of yoga, including sun salutations, key asanas (postures), breathing, heating the body and safely experiencing all of the benefits yoga has to offer.

Sadhana Study Group:
Sadhana Study Group is a class for in-depth exploration of the deeper practices of yoga. Themes and topics evolve monthly and include everything from posture practicum to pranayama (breathing practices) to consciousness studies and meditation to energetics through yoga. Practitioners can expect to learn through yoga practice, short lecture, delving into texts, individual and group activity. Designed to build a community of learners, classes evolve both with AND on behalf of the group. More on the meaning of Sadhana: Sadhana is the discipline of routine spiritual practice and the routine surrendering of the ego through activities such as meditation, yoga, chanting or prayer. (Yogapedia)
This class is open to students who have practiced 30 or more times at Prana Das and who are ready to make a commitment to weekly attendance of this class. To enroll or for any questions, please email email@example.com.
A moderate paced gentle class offering an accessible environment for all students including those with less or no yoga experience. Practiced yogis will also benefit from a gentle class. As long-time yogis, we seek to refine poses bit by bit, and the more deliberate rate of gentle yoga can lead to new insights. And let’s face it, we all have days we aren’t at our peak for any variety of reasons. A more introspective practice might be what is best for our body and spirit that day.
