Yoga builds strength, flexibility, and balance through a unique combination of breathing techniques and flowing, connective movements. Yoga is the practice of balancing the negative and positive energies while harmonizing body, breath and mind. The J is pleased to offer beginning, intermediate and advanced level classes at various times of day, seven days a week.

Yoga Levels

Gentle Yoga: A yoga class gentle enough to attend every day; ideal for students just beginning their practice.

Hatha Yoga, Level 1-2: A beginner to intermediate class which introduces additional basic postures with some longer durations. You’ll focus on proper breathing and movements and should leave class feeling longer, looser, and more relaxed.

Hatha Yoga, Level 2-3: You should leave this feeling challenged. This intermediate to advanced class will continue your practice of mastering basic yoga postures, as well as more dynamic and complex ones including arm balances, deep backbends and inversions.

Insight Yoga: Insight yoga is a blend of different yoga techniques and practices; breath, passive, active, alignment, flow and stillness, power and gentle yoga. All parts woven together to offer participants unique mind body balance, serenity and grace.

Slow Flow Yoga: Designed to help cultivate a sense of mindfulness and relaxation through a series of gentle movements and breathing exercises. Move slowly and mindfully from one pose to another, focusing on breath and connecting with ones body. Both standing and seated postures and can be adapted to different experience levels.

Yin Yoga: This class is suitable for all levels and focuses on a mediative and slow practice designed to develop your capacity to breathe through longheld poses. These poses, mostly done on the floor, are held up to several minutes while you observe your natural responses to discomfort.

Yoga Flow: This is a fun and energetic flow designed to increase flexibility for all levels. Explore yoga practice in new ways while letting go of anything which no longer serves you.
