Dear students, please excuse the limited schedule from Saturday, February 19-February 26. As I’m sure you can imagine, the last couple of years has been a challenging time for Cinda, the owner of Evolve Yoga. She will be out of the country for a much needed holiday. Cinda will also be leading a yoga retreat in Sedona from March 3-8, please watch the schedule for changes. Classes may be limited. Please find the class on the schedule you would like to attend and hit “book”. Please set up a Mind Body account and sign the waiver. If you cannot get this to work – and many cannot – please just come to the class you would like to attend and we will get you set up in person. Thank you!
60-75 minutes, 90°
A more vigorous form of flow yoga than above, with longer flows and inversions/arm balances (optional). This class is also combined with fun, energetic music. Good knowledge of the poses is suggested, but if you are in good physical shape, it’s fun sometimes to just jump in and try! (Note: Power Vinyasa is 75 minutes)
60 minutes, 72°
A slower paced yoga, where postures are held for a longer period of time, sometimes 5 minutes, targeting connective tissue that isn’t normally exercised in other forms of yoga.
60 minutes, 75°
A general yoga class for any level. Basic pranayama (breathing) technique is cued throughout as well as a wide variety of asanas (poses) to explore the amazing physical benefits of yoga. This is a great class to learn the different poses as well as correct alignment. Become comfortable with doing yoga while building strength and flexibility.
60 minutes, 80°
Great for Intermediate students who have a basic knowledge of the different poses and are ready to begin to link them together with breath for a more energetic practice. Students are set free to flow on their own a few times during the class, flows are shorter than a Vinyasa class.
FULLY LED SLOWFLOW
60 minutes, 80°
Every pose is cued so there is no need to remember the flow! Great for Intermediate students who have a basic knowledge of the different poses and are ready to begin to link them together with breath for a more energetic practice.
60 minutes, 75°
Especially good for beginners as well as anyone who wants a more “chill” class to relax in while stretching and releasing tension in both the body and the mind. There are not as many standing asanas (poses) as a Hatha class and inversions aren’t usually cued.
Dharma Mittra teaches that stress is the cause of injury and illness, and that we must find ways to be better balanced. Many of us are walking around exhausted, not getting the valuable sleep we need at night. This guided form of relaxation removes tension and fatigue in the physical body, relieves depression and anxiety, rejuvenates and energizes the entire system, boosts the body’s natural healing ability, and normalizes the circulatory system. A 45 minute Yoga Nidra is like getting several hours of sleep! It is through this practice that one can gradually come to recognize that you are so much more than the body or the mind. Upon waking, one returns feeling deeply refreshed and rejuvenated. This is a VERY accessible form of meditation to practice.
Yoga Nidra, sometimes referred to as ‘yogic sleep,’ is a restorative meditation that guides you into conscious awareness of each part of the body for deep and effortless relaxation. Yoga Nidra induces a deep state of relaxation and inner awareness. This nidra is led by Cinda, and is in the lineage of Sri Dharma Mittra. The first half of class is yin yoga, followed by nidra.
In essence, Dharma Yoga is a system of classical Hatha-Raja Yoga. A devotional practice that emphasizes good health, a clear mind and a kind heart. The method weaves together many teachings in order to bring all students closer to the goal of Self-realization. Sri Dharma Mittra is Cinda’s guru, and she studied with him for her 500 hour and 800 hour trainings. What to expect? A small discourse on spirituality, a vigorous asana practice, a nice long savasana/nidra, some breathing technique and a short seated meditation.
