Novo Sculpt :  Novo Sculpt is a 60 minutes beginner class that includes a great combination of static and dynamic postures performed with light weights. The practice is designed to build strength and tone the muscles using both, isometric work found in traditional Yoga and isotonic contractions offered in modern workouts with weights. Although the main purpose of the class is to activate and bring some definition to the muscles, the practice includes several opportunities for stretching, particularly during the standing series.

For safety reasons we decided to use neoprene coated weights of 1, 2 and 3 lbs. We designed the postures and the sequence so that those weights would be more than enough to challenge the muscles. In fact, we recommend to start with the 1 or 2 lbs. until the body suggests otherwise.

Gym gloves are not necessary but you can bring it and wear it during the class if preferred.

This class is offered with music.


Yin Yoga :   Known as gentle Yoga or the quiet practice, Yin Yoga is the quintessential relaxing class. Yin Yoga derives its name from the Chinese Taoist concept of Yin and Yang where Yin is associated with calming, soothing, introspection, and an attitude of quiet acceptance. Practicing Yin Yoga is an attempt to gently stretch and rehabilitate the connective tissue that forms our joints.  Connective tissue accounts for 50% of the resistance against our body's flexibility compared to 40% provided by muscles. Connective tissue doesn't respond to brief, rhythmical stretches as muscles do.  For this reason, one of the fundamental characteristics of Yin Yoga is to hold the postures longer than other practices and with most of the muscles relaxed.  This is a 60 minute class, all on the floor, that will be taught with low, soothing lights. The heat will be a little less than other practices offered at our studio but still felt. Come in to try this unique and effective class that will give you an opportunity to slow down a frenetic life schedule, a way to counter a stressful situation or just a chance to spend an hour doing quiet, introspective yoga.​ This is a “less heated” class. Expect about 95°-99°​. This class is offered with music.


MFR (Myofascial Release)Yoga Therapy

A fun and invigorating 60 minute class that focuses on the releasing of painful trigger points throughout the body. The beginning of each class starts with a 10-15 minute rigorous warm-up, consisting of yoga postures combined with corrective exercise techniques. The following 35-40 minutes will be the real work of the class, releasing painful and dysfunctional trigger points! Using a roller and an MFR ball, you will be guided to methodically pinpoint and release problematic areas of muscle tissue, areas that cause improper muscle function. The final 10 or so minutes will be the cool down, calming and lengthy stretches of the specific areas we focused on during the class. Ultimately, releasing trigger points throughout the body will create an increased overall functionality of the body and a much improved well-being.
