A Basics class is a place for people to begin their yoga practice or to reconnect with their yoga roots. In Yoga basics you will learn the fundamentals of yoga postures and breathing techniques. The supportive environment of this class will provide you with the foundation to develop a safe and rewarding yoga practice. A Basics class is no less challenging than any of the other classes. In fact, because the poses tend to be held and felt longer, it can be even more challenging.
Traditional Hatha Yoga
This class is a traditional Hatha Yoga class. Today, the term hatha is used in such a broad way that sometimes it is difficult to know what a particular hatha class will be like. However, at Tuladhara, our Hatha Yoga Class will be relatively gentle, slower paced and great for beginners or students who prefer a more relaxed style where they hold poses longer. You will still build strength, flexibility and work on breath and meditation practices.
Yin Yang Fusion
In Chinese culture, the Yin and Yang symbol represents two opposing forces in nature. The dark and light, hard and soft, feminine and masculine. In the Yin Yang Fusion practice you will get a blend of disciplines beginning with the more Yang or power style practice, but leaving time to incorporate Yin or softer poses through the class as well. We also may incorporate some Daoist traditions of yoga as well.
Power Vinyasa Level 1
Power Vinyasa Level 1 will focus on Sun Salutations, basic posture sequences, and fundamentals. This class offers a challenging cardiovascular and strength based practice that leaves time to continue to focus on the fundamentals. Modifications are always given for more challenging postures, and we encourage you to slow down and rest any time you need to. You will leave this class revitalized physically and mentally.
Power Vinyasa Mixed Levels
Power Vinyasa all levels is a vigorous and dynamic, flow-based yoga. Build strength, cardiovascular health, flexibility, and concentration as you experience Vinyasa as a true movement based meditation. We suggest you have some familiarity with Sun Salutations A & B before tackling an all levels class.

Yin Yoga involves a relaxed practice of floor postures that are held from three to five minutes at a time. Our Yin Yoga classes are a perfect complement to a more yang or more active style of yoga such as Vinyasa Power Flow (Power Yoga) or Ashtanga. This class is accessible to all levels, including first time students.
