Beginning Yogis

We recommend starting with one of the Basic / Intro classes as an introduction to yoga, basic postures and breathing technique. For additional variety you may also explore any of the Yin or Yin & Yang classes which are also appropriate for beginners.

If you are new to the White Lotus studio, please arrive a few minutes early for your class to complete a New Student Form. Parking is available in both the front and back of the building and we have both front and rear entrances.

Mats are available for a $1 per-day rental fee.

Our average class temperature is a comfortable 75 degrees. Yin classes are slightly cooler which is more conducive to deep stretching of connective tissues and joints. Temperatures for our “Hot” classes range between 80-85 degrees to gently heat up the muscles for greater flexibility. Note that we are not a Bikram studio and our class temperature does not exceed approximately 85 degrees, as we do not believe there are health benefits beyond this temperature range.

Ashtanga

An ancient form of yoga practice composed of a repetitious series of traditional postures. The combination of breath, energy locks and focus creates a moving meditation.

Flow

This class expresses the energy that surrounds the class. The Instructor will flow with the energy of the class with moves that engulf students in lightness, moving into postures with ease and creating a state of balance. This class teaches us grace and self-love by expressing what the student feels with moves into the body to open and release stress. Appropriate for beginners to intermediate.

Hot Flow

Come together and crank it up! Vigorous breath, music and movement helps us explore our potential! Create heat as we move with breath, linking postures together into powerful flows. Have fun working out both the body and the mind as we challenge ourselves to handle intense sensations safely. Finally, cool down, relax and let go, moving toward stillness and peace. The room is headed to approximately 80-85 degrees to gently heat up the muscles for greater flexibility.

Meditation

Basic breathing and simple relaxation techniques to calm the mind and realize a meditative state. An opportunity for both beginners and experienced meditators alike to take time out as part of a healthy, supportive, like-minded community to share and explore your own personal path of migration.

Vin Yin

This class will begin with a warming and energizing Vinyasa style practice allowing prana and energy to begin flowing through the body. The second half of the class will focus on yin poses held longer to stretch the connective tissues helping us to relax into the deepest layers of the body. You will be sure to leave feeling calm, peaceful and balanced after this healing practice.

Yin

Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis and lower spine, creating a more flexible and toned core by holding seated postures for 3-5 minutes at a time. This type of practice complements the more muscular styles of Yoga, bringing even more balance into your practice. Yin yoga is a very therapeutic, slow moving class that is well suited to beginners as well as experienced yogis looking to balance their overall practice.

Yin & Yang

A short vinyasa flow balanced with a series of Yin postures. A perfect balance of standing and seated postures in a 60 minute class that is appropriate for beginners and experienced yogis alike.

Yoga & Weights

A complete, total body workout. Our Yoga & Weights class will tone and sculpt every major muscle group in your body. Add small, 3 or 5 pound dumbbells to specific postures and move deeper into each pose.
