A regular yoga practice will help you to age with courage, strength, wisdom, joy, and wild curiosity! Who doesn’t want more of that?

Mixed Level

OSY's mixed-level yoga class begins with a grounding and calming breath meditation. You will then be led through a variety of standing and seated poses using the breath to flow with ease from one pose to the next. You will learn to stretch and strengthen the body while de-stressing the mind using mindful movement. The class will end with a deeply relaxing meditation. Newer students can refine yoga postures while veteran yogis can play with variations in all of our mixed-level classes. The class is suitable for beginners as well as regular practitioners. Options and modifications will be offered, allowing you to move at your own pace and challenge yourself just as much as feels good to you in each moment. Any level of participant is warmly welcomed, and mixed-level class options are ideal for those who are currently physically active or have some yoga experience.

Reset And Restore

A gentle alignment-based class invites flexibility through the use of bolsters, blocks, and straps. Restorative poses and pranayama practices will also infuse this practice. Perfect for those returning to the mat, and for beginners wanting to experience the life-changing benefits of yoga.

Slow Flow

Come start your Saturday morning out with some movement. The room will be warmed, just enough to soften the body and make it ready. This is Daryl's signature slow-flowing with the breath class. A gentle stretch warm-up leads to some familiar vinyasa flow Sun Salutations, and some nice balance postures, and concludes with a just right savasana with a cool lavender towel for your forehead. This is an all-level class.

Sunrise Yoga

The sunrise is a symbol of new beginnings. If you want to get your body moving before work or start your day off on the right foot, this 45-minute yoga flow is perfect. It will warm up your body and awaken your mind, leaving you feeling refreshed and energized. The class starts with gentle movements and grounding poses and then progresses to more powerful flows that build heat before finishing with deeper stretches. Perfect for all yoga levels.

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a slow-paced and meditative style of yoga that focuses on deep stretching and relaxation. In contrast to more dynamic forms of yoga, Yin yoga involves holding passive poses for extended periods, typically 3 to 5 minutes. These poses target the connective tissues in the body, such as ligaments and fascia, promoting flexibility and releasing tension. Yin yoga is known for its calming and introspective nature, making it a practice that not only enhances physical flexibility but also encourages mindfulness and inner awareness.
