come as you are.
Every class at the Center for Yoga has students with diverse levels of experience. You are welcome as you are. brand new to yoga or with years of practice behind you! Each experience will be new and there will always be someone you can follow (ask the teacher to direct you to a spot where a seasoned practitioner lies!) Although all of our classes can be physically challenging, students will find the yoga room to be a truly non-judgmental environment. The breath is the primary focus throughout the practice.
Hot vinyasa/ 60 minutes
Detroit's Original Vinyasa ~ since 1993
Developed by Jonny Kest as an evolution of Ashtanga Yoga. Vinyasa means to link breath with movement and FLOW!
This heated, breath centered class will exceed your expectations.
Bring a towel and be prepared to follow along for the first few classes. Your teachers will support you and your community will lift you up! Leave after one hour feeling much lighter than when you walked into the room! Physically intense & emotionally liberating!
SLOWBURN / 60 minutes
In the early 90’s Jonny developed Healthy Backs ™️ Yoga as a means to help relieve the back pain epidemic sweeping the western world. This practice worked to integrate a deep inward focus ( eyes closed ) and upheld an architecture that proved to move prana ( energy ) to the spine and it’s surrounding organs. Today, the practice is called Slowburn ™️ Yoga. Simple Flows and longer holding postures make it an excellent starting point if you are new to yoga! This totally integrative practice is breath centered and held in a warm room.
yin yoga/ 60 minutes
Yin Yoga is primarily all seated postures. Each pose is held for 3-8 minutes to allow a deep massage and unraveling of the connective tissues. Highly therapeutic + promotes deeper sleep!
