Class Descriptions

Such a great experience!!!! I am brand new to yoga, but since this studio is so close to my house… I decided to give it a try & wow! The owner was such a beautiful person inside and out! I felt very welcome. I was nervous because I haven’t worked out in YEARS. I don’t have a “yoga” body. I was pleased to see I wasn’t alone in the beginners class. All different shapes and sizes. Everyone was so welcoming that I felt immediately comfortable. I’ll be coming back for sure!

Our classes are grounded in a belief that less is more and that by slowing down and listening to our bodies, we can become more balanced, more healthy, and more powerful. Read on for full class descriptions.

Candlelight Yin

Need to relax, de-stress or make time for yourself? Candlelight Yin Yoga uses the warm glow of candles to create a calm and soothing atmosphere. The Yin style involves holding and exploring poses for longer periods of time in order to let go of tensions stored in the body and to calm the nervous system. Infused in the longer, more passive holds is a meditative awareness of breath, mindfulness and presence. Practicing this way also helps to target deeper connective tissues especially around the hips, pelvis and lower spine.

This practice is suitable for all levels; the use of bolsters and blankets will be encouraged. You will walk out feeling “yintastic.”

Curvy Yoga

The Curvy Yoga class is designed to make yoga welcoming to people of all shapes, sizes, and abilities. Classes are specifically designed to help you work with your own unique body by learning tools and techniques to make postures more inviting and accessible. Be yourself and have fun!

Ease Signature Yoga

Led by studio owner Tara Casagrande, this class offers a moderate level flow with an invitation to explore and be creative with your breath and yoga asanas. Inspired by Nosara Yoga Institute (NYI) training that involves Self Awakening Yoga (SAY) and vinyasa flow, this class begins with a slow centering and breath work, leads to a moderate flow and balance work and tapers down with floor work and often times a gentle gong bath or a longer savasana at the end. Arrive ready for creative, nurturing and explorative yoga.

Flow & Yin
