Chakra Flow is a container for knowing and loving yourself, your innate and beautiful powers and impulses, and your connection to all that is in the fullest way possible. Each class focuses on a different chakra, which we explore through traditional yogic asanas and breathwork, guided meditation and somatic movement exercises, following what feels the best in our individual bodies. In honoring the pleasure principle and all of the wisdom therein we offer ourselves and each other deep, holistic nourishment through which we are able to expand our capacities to let go, become stronger and fuller, and more empathetic to all creatures, life forces, and the world in which we live. Open to all levels.
Community Class ($5)
The idea of selfless service (Seva) is an important concept in Yoga. Because everything is perceived as One, serving other people is considered an essential practice of indirectly serving your Divine Self. This class is a great way to support graduates of the Daya Teacher Training as they explore and hone their craft, while you get to practice at a reduced rate. Instructors will rotate weekly, so check the schedule to meet our Graduates! Open to all levels.
Daya Dance is a space to greet your body and explore its pathways. Through awareness exercises, guided movement, contact improvisation, and elements of yoga, students will be encouraged to experiment and ultimately find joy in their groove! Open to all levels.
To move dynamically is to evoke the force that stimulates change. To use movement as a form of self expression and self exploration is to remain curious to the ever evolving life force within the body and therefore the ever evolving you. Dynamic Flow is a Vinyasa-style class that moves gracefully through poses, balancing out, opening up and turning upside down with a heavy focus on awareness and fluidity. This is an intermediate class, prior yoga experience required.
Come tune in, connect to your body and breath, and return to a sense of stillness.
Our quiet studio space is free for you to practice Meditation. Come and go as you please.

This class will replace your morning cup of coffee with a practice that is awakening without the jitters and sets your body and mind up for success, regardless of what your day may hold.
The Hatha style of yoga asks us to deeply explore one pose at a time, holding each for several breaths. We invite students to consider the alignment, meditative and energetic nature of each pose offered. Physical and mental stamina are cultivated here. Open to all levels.

Friday Night Special Flow

Kundalini Yoga & Meditation
Kundalini Yoga is a science of the mind and body, to elevate the spirit, which has no boundaries, no discrimination. Therefore it is for everyone, universal and nondenominational.
Kundalini is also known as the Yoga of Awareness; its focus is on self-awareness and delivering an experience of your highest consciousness.
Class consists of Asana (movement), Mantra & Chanting (sound current), Pranayam (breathwork), and meditation to relax and heal your mind and body. Open to all levels.
*If this is your first time practicing Kundalini Yoga, please mention it to the instructor.
In its most basic form, the Vinyasa style of yoga is the marriage of breath and movement. Each breath brings a new pose or transition between poses, allowing the body to feel both light and powerful as the movement itself becomes a meditation. This Vinyasa class veers toward the gentle side to help you let go of your daily stress and prepare for a good night’s sleep. Open to all levels.

Pay what you can and come as you are.

Somatic study is the study of the body, more specifically of your unique body and how it relates to your energetic and psychological experience. Expect to move, sweat, breathe and rest.

Tea Ceremony & Meditation
We meditate and drink tea, learn about tea, learn about meditation, drink tea, talk about tea, talk about meditation.
Tea is much deeper than Lipton lets on! It is an ancient tradition whose riches are just beginning to bubble to the surface in the west. It is said that “tea brings nature to society” and that it offers us a powerful way to connect with ourselves and with each other. Chinese and Japanese tea mystics have cultivated tea based methods of healing and sustenance for thousands of years. We seek to engage with this wisdom through tea leaves, literature and meditation to let our thoughts settle, clarify our intentions, and retain a receptive heart. We drink all types of teas ranging from young, spritely green teas to aged fermented pu-erh tea harvested from trees that are hundreds of years old! Each week will have its own theme experienced through ceremonial forms such as gongfu, Japanese tea ceremony, and bowl tea.
This class offers a dynamic flowy sequence to energize and awaken the mind and body. Emphasizing pranayama (breath work), marrying physical asana (pose) with the breath, focusing on alignment, and self compassion. Open to all levels.
Prior yoga experience required. Marrying breath with movement, this practice will introduce more advanced Asana & dynamic sequences. Come bring your Vinyasa practice to a new level!
Women's Rejuvenation Circle
Women's Rejuvenation Workshop is a co-created experience of women supporting women in reclaiming our bodies, beings, and sexualities as our own. We draw power from the archetype of the triple goddess: the Maiden, Mother, and and ever-wise Crone that lies within each of us, and in gathering together, we are able to tap into our deep reserves of wisdom, and healing potential. We believe that the healing and empowerment of women is vital for the healing and empowerment of the world. Through our structure of forming a sacred circle, guided meditation, emotional check-in, ritual, and honoring our bodies' sacred sensuality, we create a healthier, juicier means of being, healing the earth and inviting a more kind and conscious society, one empowered woman at a time.
Yin - Yang - Nidra
Duality comes together in unity. We start with a series of long-held passive poses to stretch sore muscles and open joints. Once our bodies and minds are open, we begin to explore more active movement, squeezing the muscles around the bones to pull the body back together and reintroduce heat. Poses requiring a greater range of motion become accessible. We end with a 30-40min Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) meditation, which serves as restoration for the body and can also be used as a precursor to lucid dreaming and astral projection. How deep do you want to go?
Yin Yoga is known as the yoga of joints and bones. A slow paced class, especially perfect for sore bodies, runners, athletes, and those who crave a deep, relaxing practice. Prepare to go in and discover parts of the mind and body you didn't know existed. Open to all levels.
