hOMe Collective Yoga Class Descriptions

Classes at hOMe Collective Yoga offer students a range of styles & options, but one thing remains consistent in any class; our teachers are dedicated to guiding you through a safe practice with modifications & adjustments to help you deepen, strengthen, and grow.

Basics/Gentle Yoga
All Levels

Gentle Yoga is a wonderful way to begin your yoga practice! We move slowly and specifically, introducing and developing standing, seated, and supine poses. Gentle classes are soothing and balancing, allowing you to calm the mind, center the breath, and access openness in the body. This class is encouraged for yoga students at all levels, newcomers or long-time yogis, as a welcoming and refreshing way to encourage your practice.

Core Flow

Intermediate/Advanced

Core yoga is a dynamic, challenging class that works the entire body and specifically targets the core area from the abs through the thighs. You’ll practice long holds, fast flow, inversions, arm balances, and you’ll train your core muscles (not just the abdominals but the whole core system!) to strengthen and stretch. Each class will be different, come play & explore!

Garden Yoga

All Levels

Join us for yoga in the garden! Current research shows that taking your practice outside offers multiple benefits:

:replenishes depleted energy
:heightens awareness through the senses
:builds confidence and increases core strength
:boosts the benefits of meditation

This gentle/moderate vinyasa flow increases your connection to the natural world through prana, asana ,and meditation. You will leave your mat refreshed and energized.

Please bring water and bring layers as we will be outside (even if it’s cold).During inclement weather we will have the option to move inside.

Gentle Vinyasa

All Levels

Gentle Vinyasa is a great way to learn the basics of a Vinyasa class with slower sun salutations and all levels peak poses. We emphasize the incredibly important process of linking the breath with the movements, and learn how to align and strengthen in many of the basic poses. Teachers offer variations and modifications so that students at all levels can find joy & safety in their practice.

Meditation

All Levels

This class offers many styles of meditation with an emphasis on mindfulness-based meditation.  Included in each meditation is a breath work practice, combined with body awareness and relaxation, as well a guided meditation exploration.  This is a great class for beginners and those who enjoy being guided through their meditation practice in a supportive and safe environment.

PRISM YOGA
Redefine how you think about vinyasa yoga with this revolutionary method created by master instructor Scott Anderson. PRISM is an acronym for Propreoceptive Re-education (thru) Intuitive Sequential Movement. This strength-based method has strong, deep roots in the vinyasa tradition you probably already know, but is fused with modern methods of physical therapy and body weight training to deliver a uniquely targeted and eloquent experience for the entire body. Practitioners of this method can expect to quickly improve stability, strength, and range of motion through the method’s emphasis on motor control (using the right muscle for the job) and the de-emphasis of torque and leverage (which often results in strengthening DIS-function, rather than function) Easy to learn, and unapologetically difficult to master, PRISM is about separating the invisible aspects of our practice to reveal a spectrum of colors we never thought possible.
Restorative Yoga
All Levels

Choose to relax and restore your mind, body, and spirit as you are guided into restorative, passive postures that promote deep, conscious relaxation while also supporting immunity and over all well-being. Our world is fast paced and stress filled. Intentionally slowing down your mind, body and breath is crucial in being present to all of your daily responsibilities, challenges and joys. As your body sinks into relaxation, your mind and spirit follow into this place of calm.

Somatic Movement Class

All Levels

While not technically yoga, Hanna Somatics and Yoga share a common goal of unifying mind with body through movement and awareness.  Hanna Somatics was developed by Thomas Hanna who realized that the disease and dysfunction typically thought of as aging was actually caused by chronic stress and injury. Somatic Movement is designed to release chronic muscular tension and help people fully recover from old injuries. Simply put, in this class, functional, whole person movements are done slowly and mindfully so that the person learns to get better at moving in their body as they age.

Students of these classes can expect to:
-Learn how to slowly and safely explore movement potentials in their body.
-Connect, integrate and balance areas of tension with areas of comfort
-Discover how the different parts of the body work together as one whole system
-Unwind unconscious patterns of physical and emotional holding
-Fulling recover from the physical effects of past injuries and trauma
-Move better, feel better, and live better

Classes will offer pranayama, asana, meditation, peak poses, dharma talks, and more.

Vinyasa
Intermediate

Vinyasa means “breath & movement;” in these classes you’ll flow through sun salutations and creative variations, work towards peak poses, and incorporate the breath (pranayama) the entire time. Both invigorating and balancing, Vinyasa yoga is an incredibly powerful way to strengthen, stretch, play, explore, and deepen. Vinyasa is more challenging and faster paced than Gentle Vinyasa, though teachers continue to offer variations & modifications so that all students can find joy & safety in their practice.

Vinyasa means “breath & movement;” you’ll flow through sun salutations and creative variations, work towards peak poses, and incorporate the breath (pranayama) the entire time.

Women's Yoga Circle

All Levels

Do you feel numbed out and disconnected from nature’s cycles, however unsure about how to feel like yourself again?

At hOMe Collective’s Women’s Yoga Circle, you could find your way back to your clarity and calm by restoring and deeply nourishing your entire system through breath, movement, and community…

Yin & Nidra

All levels

Find your edge and sink into it, holding poses anywhere from two to five minutes and diving into a meaningful connection with the mind.
