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 and a few times a year we hold student appreciation parties after class where you have a chance to get to know the yogis with whom you practice.

 

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 have moderate heat.

 
 

MOVE WITH INTENTION

 

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.

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.

 

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.

 

Sunrise

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

 

Healthy Spine

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.

 

MEDITATE

 

Yoga & Meditation

This class is for beginner and experienced meditators alike! Crafted with an energetic theme in mind, the practice uses asana (the physical yoga poses) to prepare the body and mind for an accessible seated guided meditation. Each class will introduce students to methods that deepen the experience of yoga such as breath-work (pranayama), chanting, bandhas (physical body holds), philosophy, Ayurveda, and mudras. Some yoga experience recommended; beginning meditators welcome.

The majority of this class is a physical practice of asana and pranyama, ending with guided meditation.

Yoga Nidra

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 begins with gentle movement to transition you from the external world toward the inner landscape and is followed by guided relaxation/meditation in a supported reclined position. The practice of Yoga Nidra is accessible for all levels. Come recharge yourself!

Guided reclined relaxation/meditation will last for approximately 25 - 30 minutes.

 

CHALLENGE YOUR BODY

 

Arm Balances, Inversions & Binds

In this intermediate level class, we take foundational postures to the next level. By delving into arm balances, inversions, and binds, expect to expand your body awareness and elevate your practice - right off the ground! Our goal is to make these postures safe and approachable. Class begins with a traditional flow sequence that warms and activates your body, preparing you to move in new ways. The soul of class is workshop style posture breakdowns. Here you explore and play with each posture both on your own and with 1:1 teaching and physical assists. This is a great way to get out of your comfort zone and try something new! Some previous yoga experience required.

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.  

 

HEAL AND RESTORE

 

Roll & Restore

This class teaches students how to enhance your body's natural healing capabilities through gentle, specialized stretching of connective tissue that surrounds muscles and organs. We use tennis balls and a variety of yoga props to explore different myofascial release techniques for the whole body, optimizing range of motion, strength, and flexibility. You will leave feeling physically and mentally at ease, allowing both body and mind to work (and rest!) more efficiently. This is an excellent complement to your regular yoga or movement practice.

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

Slow down and sink into this slow, meditative and intense practice. Expect postures to be held in stillness for long holds (1-10 minutes). Because Yin targets the connective tissues such as ligaments and fascia rather than muscles, the physical affect of Yin is unlike that of other classes. A perfect compliment to dynamic forms of yoga, you'll leave with a sense of deep release and relaxation.

Yin Flow

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