Vinyasa yoga is a dynamic class that connects breath with movement, building strength and flexibility. Vinyasa classes are unique to the teacher and can incorporate backbends, inversions, and arm balances. Open to all levels and students are welcome to flow at their own pace.
Ashtanga is a traditional practice that focuses on the same set of poses. Students explore various sun salutations, standing and seated poses, and a sequence of closing postures. Each pose is held for five breaths which allows the body to open up and feel new sensations each practice.
“In the beginning I️ started yoga to strengthen my ankles, and they are a lot stronger. I️ just didn’t realize this was going to be my journey. I️ absolutely fell in love with it in every aspect. I’ve got to say one of my favorite parts is how yoga allows you to free the child that’s still inside you. It allows you to be with an open mind. To smile when you make a mistake. And gives you this curiosity that makes you want more. I’ll be teaching vinyasa (flow) but would love feedback from the community on what you need most. When showing up to your mat be prepared to smile a little and get outside of your comfort zone.” -Zoe

Stretch + Restore for Athletes
This is a wonderful stretch class for all levels. The class will move and stretch the body, with relaxing poses on the mat using light props to ensure that each student is comfortable and supported. The class will consist of longer holding postures and gentle movement to increase range of motion and soothe muscles.
Taylor Goode is a newbie yoga instructor and loves learning new styles and techniques to bring into her practice. Climbing is another great love of hers, and she loves how both challenge her body and mind. While she honestly spends most of her time climbing and practicing yoga these days, Taylor also enjoys her side hustle of teaching 5th grade at Snowden School in midtown. Other than that she likes to get outside and chill out with her doggo, Nashoba. He is the light of her life.
Taylor was trained in Baptiste Style Yoga which is inspired by the Hatha Yoga teachings of Krishnamacharya. It is a hot power yoga that focuses on the physical poses along with meditation and self-inquiry, and can be modified as needed so it is accessible to everyone, everywhere. The five pillars of Baptiste Yoga are Breath (ujjayi pranayama), Heat (tapas), Flow (vinyasa), Gaze (Drishti), and Core Stabilization (uddiyana bandha). The sequence follows a progression of asanas intended to awaken, vitalize, and empower.
Liz Kinnmark found yoga as a way to balance her body and balance her life. With a background as a competitive gymnast and an aerial dancer, she’s spent almost 20 years training for her body for peak performance. Her passion is teaching people to get up in the air, and to move in ways that they never thought possible. Once you’ve learned to bend and fly, nothing seems impossible.
