At Foundation Movement & Yoga our mission is to make movement accessible and inspiring for everyone…

…whether you’re just starting out on your wellness journey or want to add a more holistic approach to your already active lifestyle— our diverse range of classes will provide the strength and mobility work to help you reach your unique goals.

Yoga

Align & Flow Yoga- This slow flow class provides poses that range from gentle to challenging, all done with stable, self-centering energy. The pace is slower, and emphasis is placed on safe alignment and maintaining slow breathing. This makes it particularly well-suited to newer students, or for those who desire deep concentration within their practice.

Awakening Flow- A fun and challenging flowing practice that is great for all levels. Just breath, movement, and sweat! Each class is taught with a variety of sequences to challenge and empower you in a warm and inviting space, so that you can simply get on your mat, do your work and leave completely revitalized. This 60-minute class will work your core and upper body, and prepare you for deeper posture variations, arm balances, and inversions.

Mindful Flow & Restore- This class begins with a 60-minute creative and rhythmic all-levels Flow, and seamlessly shifts into an optional 30-minute Restorative sequence. Each class is designed to help bring you out of your thoughts and into the moment, first by flowing postures, and then by holding deepening postures that open the hips, shoulders, and spine. After 60- or 90-minutes of meditation, music, and movement in our warm room, you will leave inspired, uplifted, and thoroughly cleansed.

Gentle Flow- A slower practice developed to offer a slower and more fundamental approach to yoga. The class will include breath work, strengthening poses, balancing poses, and relaxation techniques, all the while focusing on the specific needs of the individuals in the class. All are welcome, especially those who want a slower-moving, less vigorous introduction to yoga in an unheated space. This class is great for every body type and every experience level.

Morning Flow 45- Morning Flow 45 is a slow-flowing, integrative hatha yoga practice to energize the body and invigorate the mind. This class stimulates the physical and energetic body while bringing awareness to the whole self. The perfect way to start the day.

Restorative Yoga- This floor-based class targets the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis and lower spine, to complement the dynamic and muscular styles of yoga and movement. Created as a preventative and healing practice, restorative is also perfect for those experiencing anxiety, depression, insomnia, fatigue and digestive issues.

Vinyasa Flow Yoga-Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.” - The Bhagavad Gita
