MEL-O-YOGA Class Descriptions


Strengthen & Lengthen

Strengthen & Lengthen classes are appropriate for participants of varying yoga experience (from beginners to well seasoned) as long as there are no acute injuries.

Beginner Flow, Warm Power Flow, and Flow & Yin

Beginner Flow classes teach the basics of Vinyasa Flow. You'll learn the poses & the sequences of Sun Salutations as well practicing them with a slow flow. 

Warm Power Flow classes are heated to ~80 degrees & tend to move at a quicker pace and incorporate more movement than Beginner Flow classes.

Flow & Yin classes begin with a slow flow & end with long, deep stretching.  

Gentle/Beginner, Beginner Alignment, and Stretch & Balance

Gentle/Beginner classes are a great place to start if you are new to yoga or are looking for a slower paced, more meditative focused class.

Beginner Alignment classes may appeal to beginners as well as anyone who wants to practice slowly and methodically with attention to the details of the poses.

Stretch & Balance classes combine yoga, stretching & balance exercises such as reaching, stepping & rotating.
