SPA Yoga® is a 60 min slow-flow, floor-based, whole-body sensory experience based on Fluid Yoga® sequencing. By engaging all five of the senses with soft light, soothing music, and aromatherapy, SPA Yoga® aligns practitioners with the inner wisdom of deep relaxation. The physical practice takes time to open the body’s subtle energy and prepares students to experience new depths of awareness in an extended, guided savasana, guided meditation, or Yoga Nidra.
Benefits: relieve stress and anxiety, heal and restore the body and mind
Yin is a complementary practice to more active styles of movement supporting maintenance of mobility, healing, and an opportunity to explore mindfulness and the subtler aspects of a personal practice. Working with gravity, students move gently through poses, holding each pose for several minutes. This slow pace allows the pose to work within the deeper tissues, increase awareness of body sensations, and focus the mind. Yin classes focus on the lower body; especially the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, and lower spine.
Benefits: increase flexibility and range of motion, relieve stress and anxiety, support healing and mindfulness.

“Nadi & Nice”® Flow & Massage
Enjoy the therapeutic benefits of stretching, strengthening, and massage — all at the same time! “Nadi & Nice” works the fascia and muscles throughout the body in an intermediate yoga flow. The class uses smooth, pliable Nadi Balls® to target specific areas of the body and serve as a vital source of biofeedback. Northern Virginia magazine writes, “The balls work into the fascia lines, creating openness and encouraging correct alignment, and students can feel how sensations are connected throughout the body.”
Benefits: strengthen and align your entire posture, relax and soothe the muscles, feel stronger and more confident in your body, relieve pain and discomfort
“Nadi & Nice”® Relax & Massage
Enjoy the relaxing benefits of stretching and massage with this easy-going yoga class. The Nadi Ball lets you melt into hard-to-reach places that you can’t access with traditional stretching and foam rolling. Your muscles sink around the Nadi Ball, relaxing the tight, crunchy knots. And the fascia—the thin layer of tissue around the muscles and organs—begins to loosen and reshape. What you get is a whole-body experience that relieves tension, boosts the immune system, and improves circulation.
Benefits: relax and soothe the muscles, relieve pain and discomfort, boost the immune system
