Yoga classes are not “1-size-fits-all.” Age, fitness levels and available energy vary widely among individuals. At Karma Yoga, however, you have choices among a variety of styles and yoga traditions. From Karma Yoga (our signature Hatha classes) to Anusara, Yin and Kundalini, there’s a class that’s just right for you, with experienced teachers who care about your well-being. *Starred classes are suitable for beginning students.
A grace-filled practice that teaches universal principles of alignment. The focus is on opening the heart and on learning technique in order to develop strength and cultivate awareness of profound subtleties in the physical and energetic bodies. We offer 2 Anusara classes each week:
Anusara Foundations * for those new to Anusara or to yoga. This class focuses on postural basics and is a welcome refresher for all students wanting to revisit yoga fundamentals.
Anusara Intermediate is for students with some Anusara experience or those with a solid understanding of yoga postures. This challenging class enhances awareness, strengthens foundations and leads to a heightened appreciation of the joy of embodiment.
*Our Donation Classes are about the act of giving. How each unique individual is able to give -- from the full value of $20 to $1 -- is personal. Those who can give more support those who have less. We trust that through giving freely, the Universe will take care of us. When taking a designated "Donation" class, students have the opportunity to choose to make a donation or to use their membership/package if they have one.
Fusion is a highly engaging class set to energizing beats that brings classic Hatha yoga and resistance training together on the mat. The teacher uses light weights, bands, balls and more to enhance the workout experience and give students a unique total body conditioning class. It closes with the teacher’s choice of a few longer yin-like poses followed by a soothing savasana.
Created by David LIfe and Sharon Gannon, Jivamukti Yoga is a comprehensive class that transforms, invigorates and energizes while simultaneously grounding and leading students to explore spiritual aspects of the self. It includes Sun Salutations, standing, seated, prone and supine postures as well as inversions. This is an energetic class that's recommended for those who have some basic understanding of yoga postures.
Karma Yoga is a breath-based practice that warms the core, brings suppleness and strength to muscles and maintains mobility in joints. It’s Hatha Yoga at its finest with a combined emphasis on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions in order to facilitate healing and a transformational shift in students. There’s a strong emphasis on technique and alignment to foster an optimal physical experience. We recommend that new students start with our Gentle Karma or Karma 1 classes.
Gentle * is excellent for beginning students or those looking for a class that is slow-paced and instructive with plenty of time to get into and out of poses. Perfect for new yogis!
Karma 1 * is a beginning level hatha yoga class accessible to any level student. We make sure to move the spine in all six directions: forward, back, side-to-side and twisting right and left. Slowly flowing sequences strengthen and lengthen; breath-based movement and occasional meditation complete the experience of clearing the mind and rejuvenating the body. Perfect for new yogis.
Karma 2 is an amped-up Karma Class that kicks it up a notch to increase strength, endurance, balance and letting go. Students should have a basic knowledge of standing, seated, supine postures and backbends. Sessions may include Sun Salutations, standing balance postures, inversions, breathing exercises and meditation.
Karma 2-3 is for students familiar with their bodies and with fundamentals of breathing, posture, and flow. This class offers inspiring music and uplifting insights to move and groove your body, mind and soul. Depending on the teacher, the class usually includes sun salutations and complex sequences of poses. Expect standing balance postures, inversions (hand, head and/or shoulderstand), arm balances and deep backbending. Meditation and pranayama may also be included.
Karma 1* & 2 At the Wall explore new and familiar poses using the wall to help students increase awareness, feel supported and experience the deep relationships within their bodies. These classes are constructed so that students maintain contact between the wall and some portion of their body (foot, hand, pelvis, back). This creates confidence in balance postures and inversions. It also assists students to shift their bodies into more comfortable and effective postures. The wall is used as a prop in Karma 1 & 2 at the Wall, but that doesn't mean these classes are easy. They challenge students with new awareness, and they're a lot of fun.
Kundalini Yoga & Meditation
Kundalini Yoga is a powerful and effective form of Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D. Each class incorporates posture, movement, meditation, mudra (hand positions), mantra and the gong in varying proportions to stimulate the nervous, endocrine and immune systems while improving strength and flexibility. Designed to release mental and emotional blocks, Kundalini focuses on quickly transforming energy and consciousness. From your very first class, you'll start reaping the rewards, which can include relief from back pain, stress, addiction, depression and insomnia, as well as weight control. No prior experience with yoga is needed to participate in this class.
PRENATAL YOGA DONATION *
Encourages stretching, mental centering and focused breathing. Prenatal Yoga has been proven to help expectant moms manage the changes that they experience in their bodies. It can: improve sleep; reduce stress and anxiety; increase the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth; decrease lower back pain, nausea, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches and shortness of breath; decrease the risk of pre-term labor, pregnancy-induced hypertension and intrauterine growth restriction — a condition that slows a baby's growth. Prenatal yoga can also help you meet and bond with other pregnant women and prepare for the stress of being a new parent. Perfect for new Yogis.

Sadhana - no charge
Sadhana means "daily spiritual practice". Before you face the world each day, do yourself a favor and tune up your nervous system and attune to your highest inner self. This class will include exercise, meditation, and prayer. During what are called the 'ambrosial hours' (the two and a half hours just before sunrise), the energy you put into your sadhana gets maximum results (40x more). Your world is quieter. It's easier to meditate and concentrate before the hustle and bustle of the day begins. Bring flashlight, cushion, blankets, yoga mat. All levels welcome. Stay tuned for announcements of when this class is held.
Short Form Ashtanga
This class is a shortened sequence of the traditional Ashtanga primary series as taught by Shri K. Pattabhi Jois. The class begins with Sun Salutations and includes standing and seated postures and inversions.
Yin Yoga is a balancing(yin) complement for your active(yang) yoga practice. It targets the connective tissues, such as the fascia, ligaments, joints, and even the bones of the body which do not receive as much attention in a more active style asana practice. Students maintain postures for minutes at a time, allowing therapeutic effects to permeate deeply throughout the body. Yin Yoga generally focuses on the hips, pelvis, and lower spine and is suitable for all levels.
