Mondays

Mondays 9:00 – 10:00 am: Reset & Begin (Level 2) with Brendan

Create space for yourself by connecting to the core. Each class begins with grounding work in order to help you align your spine so that you can move it in a variety of ways during class. You should still expect to sweat in this practice although we move more slowly between poses. This allows us to take a little more time with each pose in order to establish the asana practice. Prepare for the week to begin anew as we hit the reset button on our mats.

Mondays 12:00 – 1:00 pm: Spark the Heart (Level 2) with Kristen

Arrive on your mat ready to witness, explore, and transform whatever is in your heart and through movement ignite an intention to guide you through the week. Bonus: Kristen is a YACEP with Yoga Alliance so Yoga Teachers get Continuing Ed Hours!

Make space in your schedule to make space in your body and mind! Many parts of the body get restricted and weak from daily modern life.

Mondays 7:00 – 8:00 pm: Mantra (Level 2) with Taylor

Mantra: a word or sound that is repeated as an aid in meditative focus. In this resonant, input-driven practice, we will train the body and mind in mindful focus. Building upon fundamental sequences, following the breath, we will clarify our practice to truly arrive on the mat. Like a slow wade into the ocean, we will ease into this practice deliberately, warming up to deeper stretches and greater engagement. Practitioners of all levels welcome.

Sundays

Sundays 9:30 – 10:30 am: Beginner Beginner (Level 1) with Laura

Curious about practicing yoga, but not sure where to start? Let Laura demystify the practice by meeting you where you are in a supportive environment with topics that change week to week. There are no prerequisites to start yoga. The ongoing Sunday class allows you to come when you can, but it is suggested to make a commitment to yourself to attend multiple weeks to witness the benefits of a regular practice. This is the place for “beginner” beginners completely new to yoga, but “advanced” beginners are also welcome for a refresher on sustainable movement, to revitalize your practice, or you may simply enjoy a slower paced class. We celebrate all beginners and will approach our practice with beginner’s mind whether you attend for 5 weeks, 5 months, or longer, there will always be more to discover within your practice.

Be prepared to move physically in all classes and in addition to having your own mat (we do have them available for purchase), please bring water, dress in layers that keep you comfortably covered, and it is suggested to NOT eat a heavy meal the hour before class. Feel free to contact Laura via email if you have any questions!

1st Sunday: “Intro to Yoga Lab”, preparing the body for sustainable movement.
2nd Sunday: “Breath & Core”, breath to support your movement and why we all need “more core”
3rd Sunday: “Mindful Movement”, elements of mindfulness practice and moving with postural awareness
4th Sunday: “Restorative Practice”, experiencing & understanding ease within the body
5th Sunday: “Anatomy Focus”, beginner practice infused with understanding a specific area of the body

Bonus: Laura is a YACEP with Yoga Alliance so Yoga Teachers get Continuing Ed Hours!

Sundays 11:00am – 12:00 pm: Yoga Unplugged (Level 1-2) with Jeremy

We live in stressful times. Wouldn’t it be nice to take an hour out of your day to unplug and recharge? In Yoga Unplugged, a class suitable for all levels led by Yoga Lab co-founder Professor Jeremy David Engels, we will move our bodies around the mat in order to tap into the stillness that resides just below the noisy din of daily life. Unplug from your phone. Unplug from external stressors. Unplug from narratives about what you are and are not capable of. Unplug to recharge for life off the mat.
Bonus: Jeremy is a YACEP with Yoga Alliance so Yoga Teachers get Continuing Ed Hours!

Sundays 5:30 – 6:30 pm: Gentle Strength (Level 1-2) with Allie

Begin or end your week realizing the gentle strength within yourself. This vinyasa class will cultivate gentle strength through a comfortable pace, breath awareness, core stability, and functional movement. We will wind down each class with a series of restorative postures and prepare for the upcoming week with an extended savasana.

“One of the basic reasons many people take up yoga is to change something about themselves: to be able to think more clearly, to feel better, and to be able to act better today than they did yesterday in all areas of life. In these endeavors yoga can be of great help, and it requires no prerequisites that must be fulfilled before we set out on this path.”
T.K.V. Desikachar, The Heart of Yoga
“The work of cultivating mindfulness is also play. It is far too serious to take too seriously—and I say this in all seriousness!—if for no other reason than because it really is about our entire life. It makes sense for a lightness of being and playfulness to be key elements of the practice of mindfulness, because they are key elements of well-being.”
John Kabat-Zinn, Mindfulness for Beginners
