What is vinyasa yoga?

Vinyasa is a style of yoga.  It is breath and movement. Flow.  At AM Yoga you will learn how to link your breath with movement intelligently.  Vinyasa helps to create body awareness as well as calm a busy mind.

Our classes are for ages 16+.  If the student is under 18, a legal parent or guardian must come into the studio on or before their first class to fill out paperwork. 

How often should I practice?

We practice both asana and meditation daily.  How often for you is your decision.

Not hot, not cold? 

Warm yoga.  From our experience we have learned that it is best to allow the body to warm up from your practice not from an external source.   We teach you how to use your breath and body to warm you from the inside out, not the opposite.

Our meditation studio is kept at a comfortable temperature.
