SoniVinyasa Flow – Soni Gangadean
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  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.

Darcy CavenaughFoundational 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.

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.

Yin yoga
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.
