Ashtanga Yoga – Rachelle
Ashtanga yoga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures—a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.
Devi Vinyasa – Soni Gangadean (mild/medium & Medium/spicy)
Devi Vinyasa Flow is a practice that unites breath, movement, & meditation in a way that is totally unique & rejuvenating while remaining true to the ancient “Raja Yoga (8-limbed)” system.
It is a practice that purifies, strengthens, refreshes, and synchronistically Unites the body, mind, heart, & Spirit… encouraging inner-peace, balance, and an overall sense of well-being.
Bringing back to life Sedona’s beloved “Devi Yoga” practice in the spirit of assisting with the journey of the self “home” to the Self!
The “medium/spicy” practice will always play with the individual’s personal “edge” safely by honoring whatever that may be for each student regardless of their level of experience. Challenging asana sequences include traditional sun salutations, advanced postures (with modifications offered) , arm balances, as well as inversions.
Dharma Yoga – Yogi Surya Om & Danielle
This practice builds on the fundamentals of yoga, and is designed for those wishing to advance in posture practice. Dharma yoga will ignite the entire bodily system through practice. A series of deeper balancing, stretching, back bending, twisting and inverted variations. This practice finishes with Deep Relaxation, breathing practices, and concentration/meditation, which will induce deep calm and simultaneously invigorate the students.
Foundational Yoga – Darcy
This class will teach the principles of hatha yoga, the foundations upon which to cultivate a practice unique to you. Here you will learn the yamas (yogic self-control) and niyamas (inner disciplines) of raja yoga, and develop dhyana (meditation) through the simultaneous practice of asana (posture), pranayama (breath control), and dharana (concentration). The result of the practice is a deepening intimacy both internally and externally – with the body, breath, and within relationships – and an experience of the very heart of yoga.
Hatha Yoga I-II – Carrie Konyha
Iyengar Hatha Yoga – Ajita
In these classes the development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through a gentle yet deep process. The use of props, like chairs, blocks and belts will give you the possibility to experience a pose on a deeper and more relaxed level, bringing your body and mind into harmony. Alignment and hands-on adjustments a part of this Iyengar method based class. All levels are welcome!
Kundalini Yoga – Jess

Yin Yoga is a practice in relaxation, a journey deep into the mind and body. Postures held for several minutes in relaxed positions with deep breathing allow the mind time to quiet and for energy flow to the connective tissue of the body, rarely accessed otherwise. This quieting practice complements faster, yang yoga practices and balances the typically outward nature of our daily life.
