These are recordings lovingly made during CoVid and beyond to meet the needs of our students. These recordings are available on-demand and you have access to them for a set period of time depending upon your library membership.
We work to make our classes accessible to all – all levels and all styles. Most of our classes work from a gentle movement and breath framework and provide up leveling, modifications and explanations for use of props or changes within the poses. If a class is intermediate or more difficult, we will have that in a separate category.
Not at all! The only equipment needed is a computer, tablet or phone to log into your account and watch the classes.

So glad you asked! A Yoga Community is a small subset within our full yoga video library centered around one specific theme or style of yoga. Communities are a great way to access your favorite style of yoga at an affordable price. We currently offer the following Yoga Communities:
Yin Yoga -Yin yoga holds postures for longer periods of time to target specific tissues, increase circulation and enhance mobility. Most Yin postures are done on the floor. Yin practices will encourage you to find a place within the pose that provides a manageable amount of sensation. Once this ‘edge’ is found in the pose, you will be encouraged to relax the muscles in order to seek a deeper release within fascia and other tissues. Many times, Yin practices are combined with meditation, elements of traditional chinese medicine or breathwork.
Restorative Yoga - Restorative yoga also holds poses for longer periods of time, anywhere from 1-10 minutes on average. You will be encouraged to use a full array of props including but not limited to bolster, blankets, blocks, towels, straps, sandbags and eye pillows. Most restorative poses are on the floor or may use the wall or a chair. The key difference between Yin and Restorative yoga is that you relax in restorative yoga and release with little to no effort expended within the pose. You are encouraged to rest, rejuvenate and without strain or pain achieve physical, mental and emotional well-being. Restorative yoga classes may be accompanied by yoga nidra (guided meditation) and breathwork.
Yoga Nidra - This is sometimes called “yogic sleep” a form of meditation and conscious relaxation that can induce total physical, mental and emotional relaxation. Yoga Nidra sessions can be combined with a yoga practice and be offered during your Savasana or class opening. These sessions are usually led by the teacher as a guided meditation for the students. There are studies that demonstrate Yoga Nidra can ease insomnia, decrease anxiety, alleviate stress, reduce PTSD, chronic pain and chemical dependency, heighten awareness and focus as well as transform negative habits, behaviors and ways of thinking and foster feelings of peace, calm and clarity.
Pre/Postnatal Yoga - During pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum, a woman’s body goes through many changes both physically and mentally. Yoga can help to support these changes to prepare pregnant mamas for the birth of their baby and support them during the early days of motherhood. These classes are great for women and mothers in all stages.
Gentle Flow - These classes are slow paced and gentle in nature. During your practice you flow from pose to pose using pranayama breathing practices. These classes are great for those new to yoga, those interested in learning the poses, relaxation techniques, and becoming comfortable with yoga. Expect to move slow and with intention.
Vinyasa Flow -Vinyasa is an approach to yoga in which you move from one pose directly into the next. There's a flow to a Vinyasa yoga session, though the specific poses and the pace of the flow vary from one instructor to the next. Yoga Flow can generally be defined as a yoga class that incorporates energetic movement through a series of asanas (yoga postures), by which the student experiences a sense of fluid physical motion. Additionally, a teacher who is teaching flow will have a theme and sequence of poses to support the class theme.
Power Flow - Power yoga specifically focuses on body movements which help in improving cardiovascular output, physical fitness, and firmness while yoga focuses on body positions hence improving mental, internal, and external stability.
Kids + Family Yoga - A growing trend these days, family yoga classes are those that can be experienced together as a family. That includes parents, sons, daughters, grandparents – even aunts, uncles and cousins. ... In general, family yoga classes often include things like: Group and partner yoga poses. Fun games. Reading of youth oriented yoga stories and myths with the kids/families acting out the stories with yoga poses.
Yoga Snacks - Short, yet beneficial, yoga classes meant to move the body through various poses. These classes are typically targeted at a specific part of the body, or for a specific theme of movement (ie. 5 Quick Stretches at Your Desk)
