Whether you are new to yoga and visiting our studio for the first time or you have been a yogi for years, we are grateful that you’ve chosen to practice with us to experience these benefits for yourself and humbled to be part of your health and wellness journey.
Ashtanga Short Form with Nancy
Ashtanga yoga synchronizes breath and movement through a precise sequence of postures. Ashtanga is the original vinyasa based system of yoga. This class is an abbreviated sequence of the Ashtanga Primary Series originally brought to the west by Pattabhi Jois. Detailed instruction will focus on attention to proper alignment, cultivation of breath, bandas (energy gates), flow, and gaze. Class will begin with a short explanation of a yama or niyama. We will then transition to the physical practice of asana and follow with a period of guided pranayama and seated meditation.

Yoga with Irene
Irene Malachowsky, RN, has been sharing yoga since 1999. The belief that yoga is accessible to everyone continues to influence her practice and teaching. Her slower, thoughtful style is both nurturing and transformative. She strives to give students the freedom to practice from a nonjudgmental, honest place and to bring awareness to their inner teacher and the source of their peace.
