At Numi, we know that your life, and your yoga practice, can change season to season - so we have some options here. Our class descriptions will help guide you to a style you love and then you'll want to check out a few teachers to find your fit.
Classes are either 60 or 75 minutes in length (check the schedule). Classes labeled L2 are Level 2. Level 2 classes will work on challenging poses like arm balances and inversions, deep twists and bigger backbends. Students are recommended to be able to kick up to handstand at the wall and push up to full wheel unassisted - or at least have a sense of humor and commitment to stop at a safe + effective place of practice.
For the yogis who ask, "How do I do this?" and "Why?". Learn all the alignment and actions behind your favorite (and not-so-favorite) poses and use these skills to advance your practice and add intention to your movement. Like a workshop during the week!
Mindful movements, breathing techniques, and guided meditation to start your weekend. Sometimes there will be soft music, sometimes silence. Set a restful and restorative tone for your weekend and purpose for your week ahead with this all-levels class.
This class will have participants seated in a chair or standing near it and using it for balance or support. Students do not need to be able to get up and down from the floor. Poses will invite gentle opening and exercises that build strength. Classes will also include work with the breath and guided relaxation. Class size is limited by the number of chairs - please register!
This alignment focused class delves deep into the basic postures of yoga with information about how to modify around injuries or stiffness as well as ways to deepen and expand in these "everyday" yoga poses.
Influenced by the Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary Series and work with Christina Sell, this class will move through a set series each week, keeping poses the same while you see how you change. Full spectrum of poses included: standing, backbends, core work, twists, forward bends, and arm balances.
Our steady paced vinyasa plus we'll turn up the thermostat and the speed. You can expect to sweat, get deeper into muscles and tissues in your body, and have a great time flowing with the music and encouragement of your favorite teacher. Perfect for Fearless Yogis. Generally, level 2+ (no beginners) and 85-90 degrees.
FLOW (formerly VIN/Vinyasa)
A class in the vinyasa tradition: Move with your breath in this moderate to fast paced vinyasa flow style class. Expect to move through a range of poses to build strength and heat in your body. Instructors will add a soundtrack and inspiration. This class will energize you after a day of studying or working at a desk. Class temperatures from 70-76.
Add resistance work and toning drills to your yoga postures to cross train your muscles and joints. Add a whole new level to "I didn't know I could be sore there". Classes will have music and moderate temperatures.
This riff on our vinyasa class to help slow you down and recharge. Expect to start with strong vinyasa and have a few longer holds (yin/restorative poses) to end the class. Yin is a great balance to the active vinyasa class and helps to work deeper connective tissues in our body.
Expect longer holds of poses to encourage slow opening of the fascia in the body. The longer holds require a great mental tenacity to stay present and open. This class is a great compliment to the life of an athlete to help maintain mobility. Yin poses are often used to stimulate internal restoration and meridian channels.
During this session, the instructor will practicing alongside students and give minimal instruction for poses. At times, we may work through courses such as the Asana Junkies work by Christina Sell. Students must be comfortable with their own limits and work at their own level. Ask Kelsey if you have questions about participation. Normal passes accepted OR $12 drop-in, schedule on our workshops page.
