At Prasada Yoga Center, we offer classes based on Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. The term “vinyasa” means “breath linked with movement.” Our vinyasa classes are strong and mindful. Synchronizing breath with powerful movement is the basis for all of our vinyasa classes. If you’re looking to build fitness and flexibility, release stress and become more focused, this dynamic meditation in motion will strengthen the body, while quieting the mind.
Our studio was created to inspire students to discover their unique power within. Our yoga is accessible but challenging. Our mission is to provide consistent, quality and skillful yoga instruction so students are empowered to tap into their full potential. Our certified instructors provide a safe and supportive learning environment so that you can challenge your physical limits, shift your mental perspective and awaken your true spirit.
Build a basic foundation for a vigorous practice through breathing techniques, sun salutations, and basic postures. We recommend this class as a starting point for those new to our studio. For those who have never taken a yoga class you may consider our “Beginner Series” (please see our events page).
Classes are taught to all levels of strength and flexibility. Some experience with sun salutations and basic postures (taught in our Basics classes) is suggested. Poses move through a progression, modifications are offered. Students are encouraged to challenge themselves at a safe and effective level of practice.
Slow Flow yoga practices slowing down by using a slow steady breath, holding postures, transitioning smoothly, and opening gently and mindfully while pausing and feeling each pose. This class is perfect for practitioners of all level’s, whether a beginner or easing back onto the mat.
A great class for beginners—and everyone interested in exploring a gentle practice. This class is appropriate for those who want a softer, nurturing, slow-paced, well-supported and relaxing practice. Postures may be approached in gradual steps, with plenty of time to focus on breathing and repetition so that the practice is simple to do and easy to remember. This class includes basic breathing exercises, as well as a variety of foundational postures (standing, seated, and on the floor).
Classes will include yoga postures, flowing movements and pranayama (focus on breath) to help students achieve relaxation and mobility in everyday life. Conscious effort to link breath with movement helps relieve tension and helps students gain flexibility and improve strength in the body. Cancer survivors and caregivers are welcome to participate in this class. No yoga experience is necessary.
Yin yoga allows us to slow down and find release within deeper stretches. This style of yoga targets the connective tissue that don’t always get addressed in our more yang-like vinyasa yoga. Poses are passively held for 2-4 minutes which allows for a deep stretch and an opportunity to cultivate inner awareness. This yoga complements our vinyasa yoga as well as activities like running and biking. Poses are all seated or supine and targets the ribs to the knees.
