Become a part of our community.

 

Unroll your mat at Peak Yoga and join a diverse community of yogis.  Here you'll find a warm and welcoming group of instructors and students.  To us "community" means making connections with each other and giving back to the neighborhoods in which we live.  That's why we hold monthly donation-only classes during which we raise money for local charities.  A few times a year we hold student appreciation parties after class, and for our anniversary in October we hold a Disco Yoga party which is not to be missed (complete with disco ball and disco playlist)!

 

EXCEPTIONAL INSTRUCTORS

Your instruction will be from experienced instructors who have received 200-hour teacher training certification from a program which meets the Yoga Alliance certification standards. You'll receive clear instruction and kind encouragement.

WELCOMING COMMUNITY

Once you spend some time with us you'll understand why reviews on Google, Facebook and Yelp regularly mention the community of Peak Yoga.  When you arrive you'll be greeted by one of our friendly and knowledgeable managers, instructors or front desk staff.  Check our schedule for community give-back classes and student appreciation parties. 

STUNNING VIEW

When practicing at Peak Yoga you'll enjoy mountain views which are spectacular in any season.  Especially beautiful at sunrise and sunset, catch an early-morning or late-night class if you can.

PHYSICAL ASSISTS

The best way to learn a pose is to feel it in your own body. That is why our instructors offer students physical assists. Physical assists, or "adjustments" provide students with an opportunity to feel how a subtle change in alignment can make a significant change in the posture. Physical assists are always optional.

Immerse yourself in alignment-based vinyasa.

 

Vinyasa is a flowing, dynamic yoga practice that cultivates presence by connecting movement with breath.  Our diverse family of instructors deliver clear cues to safely guide you through classes which may include a wide variety of postures such as sun salutations, standing poses, hip openers, twists, backbends and preparation for arm balances.  All classes are all-levels with moderate heat and some added humidity.

 
 

SLOW TO INTERMEDIATE PACED CLASSES

 

Healthy Back

Find greater stability in your body and prevent injuries both on and off the mat. In this class you'll explore how to engage and stabilize both the physical and energetic body. By applying these skills you'll be able to better protect your spine during all of your favorite activities - from skiing to snowshoeing to yoga. Ideal for anyone working with spinal pain, injuries or discomfort. Also great for students coming off a day on the mountain, as this practice will be easy on the lower body muscle groups, but more demanding of core stabilizers.

Align & Flow

The foundation of the Peak Yoga schedule, Align & Flow is vinyasa practice which emphasizes postural alignment.  You'll move at a slower pace than Flow classes, but be exposed to the same suite of postures.  In this practice you will cultivate postural knowledge, awareness in body and mind, strength, flexibility and balance.

 

Beginner

If you're new to yoga, restarting your practice, or learning how to practice with an injury, join us for this small-group setting class which welcomes questions and conversation.  You'll learn the most essential postures, options for modification and proper alignment from the ground up.

 

Deep Hips

Ground and open in this class designed to both stabilize and strengthen the hips. This practice will take us deep into the muscles of the hips, exploring their full range of motion.

 

Slow Flow

Slow Flow is a meditative flow with less words from the instructor. This class encourages you to pay attention to how the postures feel and "listen to your body".  Because instructor cues will be limited, this class will focus on foundational postures that naturally link together creating a calming practice that fosters internal focus.

 

Sunrise

Sunrise Yoga is an early-morning version of our Align & Flow class.  Nothing will start your day better than yoga!

 

CLASSES TO GET YOUR SWEAT ON

 

Flow

Come to this class ready to move.  In this flowing vinyasa practice you'll connect movement with breath.  Flow is ideal for students interested in building heat and strength, reducing stress and increasing vitality.  

 

CLASSES TO HEAL AND RESTORE

 

Yoga Nidra (starts Dec)

In a world ruled by distraction, over-stimulation, and multi-tasking, Yoga Nidra offers a tonic of rest, digest, and healing. Translated as 'Yogic Sleep,' Yoga Nidra is designed to access the slowest delta brain waves, the same ones found in deep sleep, when cells regenerate and the mind truly unplugs. This class will begin with gentle movement designed to transition you from the external world toward the more inner landscape. The second half of the class is a guided relaxation/ meditation done in a supported reclining position. The practice of Yoga Nidra is accessible for all levels, regardless of any past experience. It offers the chance to deepen a personal practice for the more experienced student and the opportunity to nourish and explore new territory for the the beginner. Come recharge yourself!

Restorative

Reset and recharge in this class of gentle stretches and twists which are held for long holds (1-10 minutes), facilitating release of tension in the body and the mind.  With restorative yoga your body will naturally have more energy, sleep better and you'll experienced improved mood and digestion. This class is appropriate for students of all levels.  Dress in warmer clothing than you usually would since this yoga class is more passive than most other classes.

 

Yin Flow

Yin Flow combines a moderately-paced Flow class with with deep, slow, cooling Yin postures.

A slow, meditative and intense practice, Yin yoga is practiced while seated or lying down. Postures are held in stillness for long holds (1-10 minutes). Because Yin targets the connective tissues such as ligaments and fascia rather than muscles, the release from Yin is unlike that from other classes. A perfect compliment to dynamic forms of yoga, Yin promotes deep release and relaxation.
