in your body.  All Levels welcome.

Yoga Flow + Sculpt
Rooted in the traditions of Vinyasa Yoga, our Yoga Sculpt classes work to strengthen and lengthen the muscles we use in most yoga classes. We'll focus on what's being engaged, what's being stretched, and what the correct alignment is for each asana. Classes are a combination of flow, holding/maintaining the poses, and proper breathing. Each Stone Wave Yoga Instructor will have a different approach to our Yoga Sculpt classes, so we encourage you to take class with us all! All levels are welcome, but a regular yoga practice and understanding of the asanas is recommended.

Candlelight Yin/Restorative
Heal and restore with this slow paced practice. This class is a perfect compliment to an active, busy or fast paced life style giving you balance to heal and meditate the body and mind. Students can expect to hold seated or lying down postures for long periods of time while finding support with props. This practice teaches us patience and to be fully present while calming the nervous system and releasing tension built up in the deep connective tissue. Relax by candlelight leaving you feeling rejuvenated and nourished.

Prenatal Yoga
During pregnancy your body goes through many changes, which creates stress on you mentally and physically. A way to maintain a healthy mind and body is prenatal yoga. Prenatal yoga focuses on poses for pregnant women, in order to increase strength and flexibility. It also helps pregnant women to develop proper breathing and relaxation techniques for easier and more comfortable labor.

Yoga Dynamics
Cheryl Kiviat's signature class.  Yoga Dynamics is held in smaller class sizes, so please register in advance as space is always limited.

The Vessel
Using asana, breath, elements and humor to guide you through the temple of your body.

Inner Strength Core
We will explore postures that strengthen the abdominals, posterior chain, as well
as the shoulders. This type of work not only creates more core strength but also corrects structural issues
of the spinal area and improves overall posture. Variations will be offered for newer students.
