Yoga: Ancient Technology – Modern Twists

Share this Post

Oh Yoga! We love it at Bliss. One of the things that we are happily KNOWN for in our community is the variety of styles we have at bliss. As yoga teachers we are encouraged to follow our dreams and tap into creating a class that we love to teach and that you will love to take!

Vinyasa styles (can be a faster flow between poses):

Some classes will flow faster than others and typically have the word vinyasa in the title. Ashtanga tends to have a faster pace but the poses never change and you can really chart your progress in technical ability with this class. Classes with the word flow in the title can also means that a traditional series like the sun salute is built into the class but slower aspects are also part of the class. In general all classes are going to have folds, twists, along with standing and seated postures.

  • Good Morning Vinyasa: Thursday at 9:30am
  • HOT Vinyasa & Power Hot Yoga: Saturday / Sunday at 9am, Monday / Thursday at 5:30pm
  • Ashtanga: Monday at 7pm. Wednesdays at 5:30pm
  • Mindful Movement Vinyasa: Wednesday and Friday at 12, Saturday at 11am, Tuesdays at 5:30pm
  • Yoga Lunch Express: Tuesday and Thursday at 12
  • Evening Yoga: Tuesdays at 7:30pm
  • Bliss Flow: Fridays at 9am

Gentle styles (generally a slower flow or longer holds):

Some classes will have you hold poses longer. When the title has the word “gentle” in it, you know that it is designed to go slower and will be easier on the body parts that typically have had a lot of wear and tear (knees, ankles, wrists). Some classes like Chakra Yoga or Bliss Flow will have more chanting built in to the class. When the word Beginners in the class, know that the focus is on using every day terminology (vs. sanscrit names) for poses. Getting the student prepared for any class is the focus. Come to class, try it out or read the class description before attending.

  • Gentle Yoga: Monday at 9am, Tuesday at 9:30am
  • Chakra Yoga: Wednesday at 9am, Bliss Body: Fridays at 9:30am
  • Bliss Flow: Fridays at 9:30am

  • Mindful Movement Vinyasa: Wednesday and Friday at 12, Saturday at 11am, Tuesdays at 5:30pm
  • Evening Yoga: Tuesdays at 7:30pm

Pregnancy and Post Pregnancy:
Not every pose is going to feel good when pregnant or postpartum. Some poses will support you all the way through labor, delivery and recovery.

  • Bliss Mama Prenatal Yoga Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6pm, Wednesday 10am
  • Bliss Mama & Baby Yoga: Thursdays at 11am

SLOW IT WAY Down Styles:
The slowest paced classes are yin and restorative yoga. These use bolsters, pillows, blankets and props. Most all the poses are on the floor and poses can be challenging as the require total mindfulness and conscious relaxation. Something that can be hard for most humans these days.

  • Restorative Yoga: Sundays at 3:30pm
  • Candle Light Yin: Sundays following sunset times. Check online

HOT Classes

The hot classes use full spectrum infrared heat (it’s a dry heat). These are going to bin taught in a vinyasa flow style with focus on a balanced series of postures.

  • Hot Vinyasa Saturday / Sunday at 9am, Thursday at 5:30pm
  • Power Hot Yoga Monday at 5:30pm

We love kids at bliss! They will need their own pass and of course get student rates. Be sure to read the class description as some age groups need an parent/guardian present.

  • Tiny Trees Fridays at 10am, Mondays at 5:30pm
  • Yoga Starz Sundays at 2pm

As you can see we have day time classes, morning classes, evening classes and weekend classes. Every class can be considered beginner friendly (if you follow the golden rule to “listen to your body”!). Likewise, the beginner level and gentle classes are just as effective for the experienced yogi. We encourage you to come to ALL classes that fit into your schedule. Each teacher offers you a unique experience and your practice gets better the more yoga that you do.

Our classes are walk in friendly. You can purchase a walk in class or class package or yoga membership before or after class. Membership packages are designed for that month’s use. Packages are good for 1 year. Passes cannot be share. This does mean that your friend or family member cannot use your pass.

Be sure to read class descriptions here and talk to us about what you are looking for. Teachers love to tell you about their class but other classes too. We know you will find at least 3 you LOVE!
