CLASSES

a flow for every yogi

Open

This multi-level class includes flowing sequences, hands-on assists, relaxation and meditation. Posture variations will be provided for all levels of practice, but descriptions are less detailed (75 – 90 minutes).

Basic Flow

This class is a practical introduction to the yoga practice. Join us for a slow Vinyasa sequence that includes the essentials but is a bit more vigorous than the gentle warrior. New students are welcome.

Gentle Warrior

Stretch out and enjoy a gently paced contemplative class that instills comfort and strength. This is a perfect class for new students of any age, yogis who are returning to the mat after a period of absence, and pregnant women.

Relax & Renew

This is a restorative class ideal for rejuvenating the body physically and emotionally. This class includes breathing exercises, gentle and supported postures using bolsters, pillows, blocks and/or blankets, relaxation, and meditation.

Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini yoga is known as the yoga of awareness. Its practice will help deepen the connection to the divine self and the infinite. Using asanas, dynamic breathing techniques, mantras, and meditation we help strengthen and fine tune our inner landscape so we can elevate ourselves to reach a higher conscious state of harmony with all of our experiences.

Sunrise Yoga

The class integrates postures, breathing exercises, relaxation, and meditation to stretch, strengthen, and condition. After the class you are welcome to stay for a short meditation session from 7:15 am to 7:35 am.

Energetic Flow

Energetic Flow is the perfect class to attend if you would like to try a flow class, or flow a little bit slower than in vinyasa. Standing poses and sun salutations are emphasized. You will slowly develop heat focus and strength.

Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa is a practice of dynamic, flowing sequences that are designed to increase strength, flexibility, endurance and focus. It is an energetic practice that creates heat in the body. Some pose knowledge is helpful, but all are welcome.

Intermediate/Advanced

This class will include more intermediate and advanced postures and variations such as arm balances, inversions, and backbends. These classes are a time to play with your practice, increase strength and flexibility, and discover new ways to move your body and mind (previously known as Level II/III Classes).

helpful tips

Basics for BambooMoves Classes

  • Please do not wear shoes into the studio and arrive early for classes
  • If you’re late please wait until meditation has concluded before entering the classroom. Arrive no later than 5 minutes after class has begun.
  • Try to keep your voice low in the reception area as there may be private sessions or classes in progress.
  • Classes are at least 75- 90 minutes, unless otherwise noted on the schedule. Please make arrangements to attend the entire class and avoid leaving early if possible.
  • New students are welcome in all classes.
  • Try to avoid drinking water during the yoga classes. Drinking in the middle of class can be a distraction from your practice and changes the direction of the Prana (life-force) that you’re moving upward. Drinking water during class can also cause nausea.
  • Our studio is committed to a space that is free of discrimination and judgement, and encourages support and respect.

Always remember the ten yogic rules of conduct:

Do not harm; do not steal; do not lie; be modest; do not be greedy; be clean in thoughts, words, and deeds; be content; work hard and be disciplined; study the higher Self; and dedicate your efforts to the Divine.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the oldest most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. According to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), your overall health is determined by the quality of energy flow through the natural pathways of your body.  Acupuncture uses variety of techniques, including placing very thin needles into specific points of the body to stimulate and improve your Qi (energy) flow. Human beings are complex bioelectric systems. Energy circulates throughout the body along well defined pathways, if this circulation is disrupted the result is pain and illness. The many benefits of acupuncture include: pain reduction, stress , tension relief, increased energy levels, stronger digestion, relief from bad habits & addictions, and boosts your immune system.
