About Our Power Yoga Practice

Strengthening a healthy mindset and body is powerful and requires effort.
Emphasis is placed on breath and self-awareness.
Sweating will result from your effort and engagement, not artificial heat.
Pace of practice is conducive to a moving meditation.

Power Yoga

This POWERFUL practice will increase strength, stamina, and flexibility both physically and mentally. Focus will be on connection to breath and conscious, fluid movement; as well as attention to mindset to strengthen what helps you and disempower what hinders you. You will be encouraged to honor exactly where you are and to be curious about your ever-changing edge between enough and too much. All levels welcome. 75 minutes
*Our Power Hour classes are a 60 minute version.*

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga is a gentle practice using props to hold you in postures to help you relax deeply. This is a practice for anyone with stress, anxiety, trouble sleeping or limited mobility – basically EVERYONE! Decompress and melt into a practice designed to give the sympathetic nervous system a much needed back seat to the parasympathetic. An absolutely wonderful practice.
*Our Restorative and Yin classes are offered on a pop-up basis, so keep an eye on our schedule as they are not offered every week.*

Yin Yoga

Yin practice explores the subtle energetic body, dissolving tension in connective tissues and fascia around joints, muscles and bones. Yin provides balance to the vigorous flow of daily life and more powerful “yang” practices while deepening body awareness. A slower, more subtle postural practice that encourages the letting go process and resting in the experience of surrender. Through long, slow, deep holds of postures (all seated or lying down), allow gravity and breath to dissolve layers of tension and resistance so you can move with more ease and balance.

Power & Release

This class includes self-myofascial release, somatics, and/or yin inspired movement to release tension, pain and settle your nervous system. These disciplines will prep you for a more powerful and fiery postural sequence. All levels welcome. 75 minutes

Alignment & Flow

This power class will lengthen, strengthen and bring you to new levels of awareness in all areas of life. This is an empowering practice with an emphasis on alignment and biomechanics.

Slow Flow

This class begins and ends with Savasana. With an even slower pace than our Power yoga classes, this class is great for anyone looking to increase mobility, stamina and strength.

Refuge Recovery

Refuge Recovery is a Buddhist-inspired approach dedicated to the practices of mindfulness, compassion, forgiveness and generosity to heal the pain and suffering caused by any form of addictive behavior. Open to people of all backgrounds, Refuge Recovery does not ask anyone to believe anything. No previous experience or knowledge of Buddhism or meditation required. These 60 minute sessions include guided meditations, readings from the book Refuge Recovery and group discussion. Sessions respect your anonymity. Always free, donations welcome.

Breathe + Meditate

Enjoy 25-30 minutes of breathwork (pranayama) + a 15-20 minute silent seated meditation with minimal guidance. This is a free class.

Vipasana Meditation

Vipasana (“to see things clearly”) meditation is derived from Thervadan Buddhist tradition and used to develop a stable, unified mind to observe the nature of things. From this neutral observation derives the insight and understanding needed to be less reactive, more compassionate and resilient when confronted with life’s inevitable ups and downs. This 45 minute session consists of a brief dharma talk and silent seated meditation with minimal guidance. The purpose is to cultivate kindness, compassion, meditation and wisdom for a happier, more contented life.
This is a donation-based class with half of proceeds going to the Mindfulness Outreach Initiative of Omaha.

Kids’ Mindful Yoga

Our KMY classes blend yoga and mindfulness to cultivate awareness and emotional balance. Mindfulness + Yoga is a practice of recognition and acceptance of experience. Children identify where their attention lies, what it feels like, and in turn, where they want to be, offering a sense of empowerment. Because the child is “present” they have a choice in how to respond to their experience. Mindfulness teaches children that all emotions are welcome, and further, how to meet emotions and respond to them. Geared to ages 6-10 years old.
*Our KMY classes are on hold for the time being.*

Yoga 4 Cancer Thrivers

Yoga 4 Cancer Thrivers (Y4C) classes address the specific emotional and physical needs caused by cancer and its treatments.

Chairs and props will be provided as needed. Y4C classes help you maintain a strong immune system, build muscle, improve bone density, create self-confidence, calm stress and anxiety, improve sleep and cultivate hope, well-being and ease. Bring a yoga mat, water bottle, and dress in comfy clothes.
75 minutes | caregivers welcome | no prior yoga experience needed | pre-registration required (you will be contacted prior to your first class to gain an understanding of where you are in your recovery process)
*Our Y4C classes are on hold for the time being.*
