Yogabliss believes that the strength and success of a community depends on the steady growth of every individual. Our culture is dedicated to giving you the support, encouragement and tools you need to practice the kind of yoga your body, mind and spirit desires.
Our lack of pretense comes from every instructor and practitioner knowing that we share a fellowship of common attitudes, interests and goals. We all deeply respect each others’ qualities, abilities and achievements. Regardless of where you are on your personal yoga journey, we all move forward together.
On our mats, we develop a deeper connection with ourselves and gain knowledge, confidence and skills at our own pace. We all work to realize our potential, knowing that the more we grow, the more we have to offer others. Yoga spills off of our mats into our community. It gives us greater clarity and encourages us to live each day with more energy and intention.
This energizing practice offers you a challenging mix of sweat and spirit… flowing with possibilities for both strength and surrender. We offer this class in 65, 75 & 90 minute formats. Each class is a uniquely designed vigorous practice. Be prepared to discover your best self and sweat! Class is heated to 85° - 90°.
Vinyasa means "connecting movement with breath." This invigorating practice connects you to the wisdom, strength and grace of your body through intelligent, creative sequencing.

Our Vinyasa + Nidra class ends with the ancient practice of Yoga Nidra, or guided relaxation. This dynamic Vinyasa practice combined with Nidra provides a relaxing close to a beautifully balanced practice. Class is heated to 75° -78°.
Basic Vinyasa (formerly Gentle Vinyasa & Slow Flow Vinyasa) is a deliberately sequenced class, teaching traditional breath exercises that provide the platform for a safe, effective flowing practice. This non-heated class is appropriate for all: those newer to yoga looking for more direction, the seasoned practitioner seeking a practice with time for more focus & depth, and athletes pursuing increased flexibility, balance and mental focus. This practice begins with the breath, offers a straightforward warm up to loosen the body & tone the core in preparation for sun salutations. We teach poses using principles of alignment and practical guidance. Basic Vinyasa helps build strength, improves balance, and offers deep stretching. The pace of this class is calm, allows time to learn and explore – culminating in a quiet, peaceful Savasana. 75° - 80°.
The “just right” combination of our Vinyasa and Gentle yoga classes. We integrate flowing movement with healing pauses, instruction with introspection, effort with ease. Instructors will tailor the practice to suit the ability and energy level of the class. This mindful, restorative practice includes some invigorating postures and moments of dynamic intensity. 75° - 80°.
In this gentle yoga practice, movements are synchronized with the breath, the body open and the mind relaxes. With the breath as our guide we "go with the flow", and each class is a new experience. The experience is meditative, and periodic pauses are taken to rest in more passive poses. Class is warmed to 73°.

With its origins in the balancing of the Sun (HA) moon (Tha), this class begins with centering. We focus on presence, intention and use Pranayama (breathing exercises) to bring attention into the body so that we can feel more deeply. The breath guides our awareness of how each pose affects our bodies and our minds. This practice is strong and powerful, yet struggle and pain are not a part of the work we do. This practice offers precise step-by-step instruction, adequate time in a pose, and deep relaxation techniques to help you maximize the benefits of your practice. Class is heated to 80° - 95°.
This energy-charged, challenging practice creates great energy through interesting sequencing that often brings you upside down or into arm balances. Leave your fears and your worries at the door! Experience with vinyasa yoga required. Not for the beginning student. Class is heated to 75° - 80°.
Yin Yoga uses long, passive holds to release tension in the deep, dense connective tissues of the body. This deep, quiet practice settles you into poses for 3-10 minutes, bringing you inward. Yin yoga increases flexibility, especially in the spine and hips and restores and rehabilitates joints and muscles. It also emphasizes stillness and silence, as it prepares both the body and the mind for deeper experiences in meditation. Class is heated to 75° - 78°.
In the MiM class, we use basic yoga postures and movement, supported by focused breathing to prepare the body for meditation. Using the body and breath as anchors for awareness, we open ourselves to the power of stillness that comes through meditative practice. Each class will include basic instructions, guided meditation, some walking meditation and time for sharing and Q&A. When practiced regularly, meditation can help us to become calmer, clearer and more open in our daily lives. No prior experience of yoga or meditation is necessary and we welcome those with an established practice as well. Please join us!
