Chellis Ying instructs the following:
  • Foundations
  • A slower-paced yet dynamic class that balances strength and stability with poise and relaxation. Expect broad-based work and variety, from the traditional to the innovative in these classes. This class is great for beginner’s to advanced yogis and yoginis.

  • Strong Hatha
  • This multi-leveled class is slightly more advanced than Hatha, but still accessible to all ranges of experience from beginners to seasoned yogis. The class will integrate a blend of standing poses, seated/floor poses, breathing exercises, meditation, core strengthening, arm balances and stretching. While this class will warm up with sun salutations, vinyasa flows will be kept to a minimum.
