Class Descriptions

New To Yoga?

If you are new to Yoga, we recommend:

  • Basic Yoga
  • Basic Backs
  • Candle Light Flow
  • Gentle Yoga
  • Gentle Yin
  • Protect & Perfect Your Pose
  • Rise & Shine Basic Yoga
  • Yin
  • Yoga With Props

All of the above provide a slower pace with lots of guidance from the instructor to provide a basic understanding of breath and alignment. We also offer an "Introduction To Yoga Workshop Series" quarterly for those who would like to ease into their practice with one-on one attention in a smaller group setting. Check the Workshops page of our website for upcoming schedule.

Slow Flow and VinYin are the next step up from beginner level and build on the foundational postures you learn in Basic classes to introduce you to moving through a flow that links postures, breath and movement with more cardio.

Ashtanga, Slow Burn and Friday Fusion are intermediate level and involve moving through more intense postures, holds and binds and are a great way to increase your flexibility and grow your practice.

Hot Vinyasa, Buti Yoga and PiYo are typically for intermediate to advanced levels and focus on one breath, one movement in a continuous flow of postures that emphasize core strengthening and balance in a heated room to warm the muscles and enhance flexibility.

If you have questions about a specific class, have a pre-existing injury, or are pregnant, please inform an UpDog staff member for guidance when you arrive for class. You may also call or email us anytime.

You will feel most comfortable practicing in layered, lightweight clothing with bare feet on a yoga mat. Loaner mats are available for $1. Please arrive 5-10 minutes early on your first visit to complete a New Student Enrollment Form.
