Check out what our classes have to offer, and then try one out! Let us know if you have any questions, or refer to our FAQ section.
Open Vinyasa Flow
Vinyasa Flow is a style of yoga that links the movement of the body with the rhythm of the breath. Classes are built by "flowing" from one pose into the next, creating a moving meditation. If you've been to an "active" yoga class before, there's a good chance it was Vinyasa Flow. These classes are open level and will vary based on who is leading class, and who shows up. Try one out, and get things moving!
Curvy Yoga creates a welcoming, accessible, and inclusive studio environment for yogis of every size, shape, age & ability. As a body positive yoga class all bodies are good no matter size or ability. This is our lowest impact class, and is appropriate for those with limited mobility. With this, options are offered for each pose, along with guided gratitude for the body that brings you along your journey every day. Classes will give you a chance to connect with your body with kindness.
Gentle & Restorative Yoga
Gentle & Restorative Yoga is intended to provide a relaxing and supportive environment for the body and mind. Classes tend to be much slower, more mindful, and use props (blankets, bolsters, blocks and straps - all provided) to promote ease and comfort of the mind and body through meditation and pranayama (breath work). These types of classes are great for people recovering from injury, or who have sensitive wrists and joints. Modifications are offered every step of the way! Look for them in combination with other types of class, or on their own.
Heavy Metal Yoga
Heavy Metal Yoga is exactly what it sounds like, yoga set to loud music! Heavy Metal Yoga is an open vinyasa flow class that looks to find a little bit of light in the darkness. In addition to a physical practice this class also emphasizes pranayama (breathwork) and meditation. Party on, yogis!
Queer & Trans Yoga
The intention of this class is to provide a safer space for LBGTQIA community members with a queer and/or trans identified instructor for our community to cultivate resilience, compassion, strength and courage in our bodies and hearts. Class is open vinyasa flow, but will mix elements of restorative, meditation & modifications depending on the wants and needs of the group.
Our Kid's Vibe class is a unique opportunity for kids (ages 3-9 currently) to have a play & learning based yoga class in one room, while adults enjoy a regular class on our schedule in our larger practice space. Julie is Childlight Yoga Certified & has over 30years experience designing & coordinating programming for children.
Pay-What-You-Can Community Class
Every week we offer a pay-what-you-can community class in order to separate the ability to pay for a yoga class from the desire to practice yoga. We rotate different classes from our weekly schedule to give folks a chance to try different types of yoga & different teachers, even on a budget. While nobody will be turned away for lack of funds, we suggest $8-$15. When you pay the higher end of the scale you're supporting those who need to pay at the lower end, and when you need to pay less, don't worry. Our #rochesteryogafam has you! All levels welcome.
Yin yoga is slow paced, and low impact. Poses are held on the floor for long periods of time, while breathwork, guided meditation & mantras are offered. This style of yoga targets the connective tissue of the body, and is an excellent compliment to your yang (active) yoga practice.
