Class Descriptions

Yoga for Beginners
Sequences will be broken down a bit slower and are designed to teach the basics of yoga to new students, or those who wish to refine their basic skills. Modifications for injuries will be learned if requested. This class is open to all levels.

Flow and Meditate
This class begins with a light series of asanas (poses) to warm up that gently leads you into a series of restorative asanas and some guided meditation. This class will leave you ready for a good night of
sleep and is open to all levels.

All Levels Flow
Sequences will flow through at a moderate pace. Expect the level of this class to vary. Feel free to move at your own pace, or you may follow the instructor’s cues to make the poses more challenging. The instructor will offer modifications to the asanas to support all levels of experience. You can decide how far to take your body. Having done a beginning level class is recommended before coming to an all-levels flow.

Vinyasa Flow 2/3 Sequences will move and flow continuously. Movement will be linked to the breath. Level 2/3 will be a vigorous flow, with strength and breath as the focus. Arm balances and inversions will be taught at the instructor’s discretion. The body will be challenged as poses are held for longer periods of time, and the practice becomes one of fine-tuning within each posture. Yoga experience recommended.

Yoga For Athletes

This class will be focused on three main objectives: deeply stretch the overworked and sore muscles of the athlete's body, to build core strength and awareness, and to bring quiet to a highly competitive mind. Brittany has all kinds of experience working with athletes, from the NBA basketball players of the Golden State Warriors, to CrossFit athletes, to high school lacrosse and football players and swimmers. Become more mobile and reduce chance of injury while out on the court/field/gym/grid! Ages 10 through Adult are welcome.

Teen and Tween
This class is designed for teens and tweens from 5th grade through high school. With popular music, partner poses, strength building activities, the instructors at EASY will guide your teens through an invigorating, challenging, mindful, and FUN hour of yoga! They will learn the importance of breath, stress release, stretching, self esteem and body awareness. Participants should bring their own yoga mats and wear comfortable clothing that allows movement.

Y12SR  (Yoga of 12 Step Recovery)
Y12SR is a twelve step based discussion and yoga practice open to anyone and everyone affected by the addictive behaviors of others or dealing with their own addictive behavior. This is an open and inclusive class. All A's are welcome. In this class we weave together the ancient wisdom of yoga and the practical tools of the 12 Step programs. We recognize that the "issues live in our tissues" and through our intentional, themed yoga practice, guided by our breath, we invoke a higher understanding to help us release whatever is being held. 

The class is in no way a replacement for 12-Step meetings, a sponsor, or any other part of a 12 Step recovery program. It is an adjunct providing another helpful tool in addressing the physical, mental and spiritual dis-ease of addiction. The sharing and practices are based in the 12 Steps. Just as the practices of yoga bring us into alignment, the 12 Steps bring us into right alignment with something greater than ourselves. The class consists of a combination of sharing experience, wisdom and strength followed by a yoga practice. Y12SR classes are open to people of all levels of yoga experience and at all stages of recovery (minimum 24 hours clean time required).


Power Hour Sequences will flow at a moderate to vigorous pace. Expect to clear your mind and strengthen and tone your body. Power Hour classes will be strength-based. You can expect to get a good workout for your core, arms, legs, and butt! The All Levels options will offer modifications to support all experience levels of yoga.

Lunchtime Flow All Levels Get away from your boss for an hour of ahhhhh.... Grab a friend and get your lunchtime yoga on! Sequences will flow through at a moderate pace. Expect to salute the sun, hold some Warrior poses and planks, and then get a good stretch before heading back to the office (or your kids!). Instructor will offer modifications for most poses to assist all students.

Mindful Flow 1/2 This class will flow from one pose to the next at a moderate pace. Alignment will be emphasized. Students will learn to build a strong foundation in strength, skill, focus and balance in this class. This class is acceptable for beginners as well as more experienced practitioners.

Candlelight Yin/ Restoratives In the Yin practice, passive stretches are held for longer periods of time. The Yin practice is the perfect complement to the more vigorous Vinyasa practice, as well as any other physical activities you may indulge in, such as running, hiking, biking, swimming, or even gardening. Stretches are held in order to open up the connective tissues within the body that become tight from active lifestyles or injury. Restorative yoga will be added to this class, as props are used to help the body fully and completely ease into a state of complete relaxation. Candles will add the perfect touch to this relaxing class. All levels are welcome.

Reservoir Yoga Class meets at our neighbor, the Lafayette Reservoir **15 minutes before class time. Our Reservoir flow class will be taught at an all level pace, however, some yoga experience is recommended. The instructor will focus on strength building and breath and may offer some advanced asana options such as arm balanced and inversions. Normal studio class rates apply for this class. Class meets at the left end of the parking lot and will take place on or near the staging area by the playground. Please bring your mat, water, and sunscreen! This class is included in the unlimited monthly membership package.
