A little stress here and there is inevitable, and actually can even be movtivating… as long as we know how to let it go. If you are under chronic stress, physically, mentally, emotionally, financially, or otherwise, finding a stress management system is essential to your continued health and well-being. Practicing Yoga in a studio with experienced teachers and a supportive community is an antidote to negative stress. Yoga has been proven to reduce the production of cortisol and acts as a natural anti-inflammatory (source: Time Magazine), increases flexibility and builds strength, and the breathing techniques allow the mind to find peace are become essential to the enjoyment of life as we age.
Flow styles of Yoga, such as Vinyasa and Ashtanga (as offered at Dhyana Yoga) help practitioners slip into the mental Flow State, which decreases anxiety and depression, eases emotional fluctuations, helps with memory and information processing, and generally allows people to better cope with adversity (source: Mayo Clinic Study). Yoga has been shown to correct imbalances in the immune system, reduce physical pain, particularly back pain, contribute to heart health and reduce blood pressure and hypertension, and may even help with glucose tolerance and cholesterol issues (source: University of Virginia). While all these things are happening, the bending and twisting in Yoga practice helps to stimulate the cells that make bone, and because weights are not used in Yoga to do this, studies show it doesn’t damage cartilage or lead to osteoarthritis in the process, which commonly happens in exercises that involve holding weights. Yoga’s reach extends to all the wonderful outlining edges of the body and mind, but in the end, the benefits all stem from the overall calming influence and from being around other people who are also doing their best to be good, kind, compassionate people. We have been offering this work from our hearts at Dhyana Yoga since 2002, and are dedicated in every way to continuing to do so.

ALL LEVELS VINYASA and 60 MINUTE VINYASA
There’s something special going on here! Our inspiring flow style links poses and breath in creative sequences (with roots in Ashtanga) often to a moving soundtrack of music. Variations and modifications will be given based on your experience and needs so this practice is truly tailored for all levels. All are welcome – during the first few classes there is a lot to learn, but the more you come the more fun it gets! Inversions and preparation for balances is offered but not required. Expect to work up a healthy sweat as we aim to keep the rooms around 78 degrees, and feel free to bring some water and a towel. If you are new, start with Diana’s or Bruno’s classes or request a private lesson.
DYNAMIC FLOW VINYASA
Classes taught by teachers who are using something other than the Ashtanga Primary Series as a sequencing template. These are flow style classes that incorporate movement and breathing to link extremely creative sequences of poses together that are generally accompanied by music.
LED PRIMARY SERIES
A challenging class consisting of the Ashtanga Primary Series, which is perfectly balanced. This is the template all Dhyana Vinyasa classes use as a guideline for sequencing, so Vinyasa students will feel right at home, yet taken to another level. Poses can be modified to suit the needs of each person, but expect opportunities for binding, lifting, floating and a series of delicious back bends, and also to hear the beauty of the ancient Sanskrit language. There is an emphasis on breath in this class. Bring water and a towel, you will sweat.
MID LEVEL and DEEP PRACTICES
After some experience in your practice you may crave an even more vigorous flow of creative sequences, plus the addition of second series and third series postures, linked by unique transitions, filled with opportunities for full inversions, and other options for advancement in these classes. We ask that you refrain from kicking up into inverted postures and build toward lifting instead, for your own safety and that of others. Mid Level classes are listed on the regular schedule, Deep Practices are specially scheduled and will be shown on the workshops page instead.
Yin is a passive approach to yoga which focuses on the connective tissues (ligaments, tendons, and fascia) of the body. By placing a light amount of sustained stress on these tissues, we can strengthen and mobilize our joints. Yin Yoga allows emphasis on breathing, mindfulness, and opening deeper potential of stability and ﬂexibility of the body. Yin postures also stimulate the body’s organs and energy channels, promoting energetic and emotional balance. Practice is mostly seated or on the floor as opposed to standing or moving up and down as in other classes.
Classic Yoga poses and strong focus on breathing, sound and meditation form a profound mind, body, spirit connection in this Yoga practice. Kundalini yoga is a great metaphysical complement to the more physical styles of Yoga, as poses are held longer, with eyes closed, creating a powerful inward focus. These classes are still physically challenging, but in a different way. Kundalini practice speaks to practitioners looking for mental, emotional, and spiritual strength.
