Classes

"A Yoga class at Mudita is not just a stretching and exercise class - though it certainly can be! - but a holistic practice of movement, breath, and conscious awakening that ripples out into all the ways I interact with my body, my mind, my family, my community." - Karen

Open Yoga

Movement . Breath . Awareness

The key elements of an open class are yoga postures, mindfulness and breath-work. Equal attention is given to physical as well as mental practices. Philosophical teachings are also woven into the mix, with a different focus each month (Experiment of the Month). This combination of movement, mindfulness, breath and philosophical study gives yoga postures meaning, context and value beyond exercise, offering you an invigorating, complete, and rich mind-body experience.

gentle yoga

Mindful . Spacious . Easeful

The essence of our Gentle class is the same as Open Yoga - combing movement, mindfulness breath and philosophical study. The pace is slower, the emphasis on the breath is stronger and there may or may not be sun salutations. This slow pace gives you the space to feel your breath and experience each posture.

meditation

Stillness . Strength . Focus

Meditation is an integral element of a yoga practice. We offer several different approaches. Each style has its own feel, but the emphasis is the same - paying attention on purpose in each moment, without imagining, analyzing or judging. Meditation is for everyone, it doesn’t require any experience, and has a long list of benefits. It is a practice of slowing down mentally and tuning into peace.

PILATES

Integrate . Connect . Empower

The Pilates method has long been used for improving function, focus, and strength. It is also used as a key component in many physical therapies and rehabilitation practices. Here is your chance to learn and practice the fundamentals of Pilates and integrate them into your yoga practice and your life.

QIGONG

Slow . Flowing . Movement

This class is a combination of movement, meditation and breath work - gentle and accessible to all levels of physical and emotional ability.

With roots in Chinese medicine and martial arts, Qigong is traditionally viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance qi (chi), translated as "life energy".

Qigong involves moving meditation, coordinating slow flowing movement and deep rhythmic breathing - encouraging a calm meditative state of mind.

Kundalini yoga is a technology that directs energy by using mantra (sound current), breath work, kriyas (sets of postures), meditations, and gong sound healing. It alters the functioning of the brain and body into a positive, vital direction.

Core Yoga

Foundation . Strength . Care

What is the core? Is it the energetic middle of us? Is it our emotional center? Is it our physical foundation or base of operations? Yes!

The core of our body-mind is a link, a multitude of function, and a rich site of information. It needs conditioning and care. In this class we will work with the anatomical, energetic, and visceral core. We will condition core structures for processing information about our inner and outer environments, suppleness to allow for movement and breath, and strength to help us live our lives with vitality. Harness the power and intelligence of your core to support your yoga, mindfulness, and self care practices.
