"In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities,
but in the expert's there are few."
Like my buddy Kim loves to say “We’re all beginners” and many a so called “expert” will find a confort and rejuvenation practicing our beginner series which introduces general flow, fundamental principles of alignment, and breath work. Students will be introduced to yoga postures through step-by-step verbal description and demonstration. Emphasis is placed on student understanding, safety, and stability within each pose.
Our beginner class is structured to set the foundation for a solid practice, as we begin moving and breathing in new ways. Some of yoga’s greatest benefits—for newcomers and experienced practitioners alike—come from the breath. “Deep breathing, or yogic breathing, helps us regulate emotions and reduces stress,” she says. “Breathing and moving mindfully moves energy through our minds and emotions and helps to awaken our connection to Spirit. We feel freer and more connected, inside and out” says Remy our beginners Yoga teacher.

We will use props and yogic breathing to support opening our bodies, moving towards a deep relaxation to relieve both physical and mental stress. Classes will draw from traditional yoga postures, and the occasional restorative and yin posture, too! Great for new students, pregnant women, people recovering from illness or injury, and anyone looking for a restorative break in the day. All Levels.
At Focus we believe in many paths and many teachers. Our offerings are rooted in what is now called “Mindfulness” a simple concept that is practiced both “on the cushion” and in every day life with its history linked to ancient Buddhism.
Our Simple Meditation classes all hold a space for individuals to explore their inner world while sitting in a supportive community. Together we will sit and find guidance from the help of a teacher, but as your journey progresses, you’ll find a greater sensitivity to Self and that individual inner voice begins to speak. Meditation brings connection within you and unity in your outer world. In this short, friendly class you will be guided through a led meditation. There will be a little time to share experiences and ask questions, for those that would like to, at the end of the practice. This class is suitable for all. No previous experience of meditation is necessary.
Warm Vinyasa Flow
Vinyasa yoga is one of the most popular styles of yoga practiced in Western yoga studios today. A Vinyasa yoga practice connects individual poses or “asanas” with deep breaths or “pranayama” in a series of flowing sequences of movement.
At Focus we designed our Vinyasa Flow classes to progressively open the body. Each sequence in a builds upon the previous, evolving into deeper, more advanced postures as the practice unfolds. Resetting “vinyasas,” are a standard series of poses that transition the yogi back to their home base pose: Downward Facing Dog. The entire practice culminates with a deep sense of mindfulness, self-connection and ease.
Our Vinyasa flow class includes a range of standing, seated and supine poses, twists, balancing postures, forward folds, inversions, back bends and targeted core strengthening. Some classes might offer guided meditation, chanting, or breath work, and all classes end in a state of utter relaxation in Corpse Pose or “Savasana.” Yogis can expect to experience increased flexibility, strength, stability, and overall calmness and clarity. All Levels.
Power Yoga is a fitness-based vinyasa practice. An offshoot of Ashtanga Yoga, it has many of the same qualities and benefits, including building internal heat, increased stamina, strength, and flexibility, as well as stress reduction. Our teachers design their own sequences, while students synchronize their breath with their movement. We bring music into the mix at nights with a nice warm room. No rest, always moving, find out why Power Yoga has become the most popular form of Yoga amongst the next generation of Yogis.
