Led Ashtanga classes provide a complete practice through a focus on strength, flexibility, balance and breathing. It is both a very traditional and scientifically built style that has roots going back thousands of years. You see elements Ashtanga is almost all other Yoga classes you might take. These classes are a set series of poses that focus on warming up the body, preparing it and constantly taking it to new levels. Every class will be near the same routine with slightly different challenges added in. This allows the student the proper time and focus to build up the fundamentals of a strong practice. Difficulty is Open Level and although there is constant movement, you are encouraged to work at your own pace. The instructor guides the class and the students follow. As the student evolves their practice, they learn to personally identify with it through modifications according to ones own strengths, weaknesses, goals and more.
Foundations of Yoga
This is a beginner level class that all levels of experience can utilize.

In Yoga, Hatha is a broad term that refers to the physical practice. At North Shore Elite Yoga, Hatha practices are traditional with a blend of Asana(physical practice), Pranyama(breathing practice) and meditation. North Shore Elite Yoga seeks to not just provide Yoga but to make each class a unique experience. These are 'Open Level' classes. Students are encouraged to work to their own level. Experience is not necessary but very basic cardiovascular capacity is recommended.
Power Yoga is a challenging 'Hatha' and 'Vinyasa' based class that goes over vigorous flows, core based poses, inversions and balance work while still remaining rooted in a traditional Yoga style by containing pranayama breath work and meditation. Each class provides a new experience and chance to evolve one's practice. Basic experience in physical fitness and Yoga is recommended. Mondays 11-12:15am / Wednesdays 9:45-11am
Pranayama & Meditation
This is a class specifically designed to build a Yoga breathing & meditation practice. The element of the breath is what distinguishes Yoga from stretching and standard exercise. Breathing practices do a number of things for us depending on the specific technique used. They can keep us focused on the task at hand, relieve stress, stimulate the internal organs, help blood flow and improve meditation. For thousands of years spiritual figures have used deep breathing techniques to change their state of mind and delve into deep meditation. This class is open level and you are encouraged to work at your own level. No experience required.
A Yin Yoga class is unique in that it usually consists of only of a few poses and held for an extended period. This class is inherently more meditative and are specifically designed to get into stretching and strengthening the tendons and ligaments. This is different from an active Hatha practice which gets more into stretching and strengthening the muscles in comparison. For this reason, a regular Yin practice makes both an ideal starting point and compliment to any practice you might already have.
