PE Open Yoga - During the PE Open level yoga class our teachers approach instruction in such a way that you are lead through thoughtful and structured sequences which will allow you to find the freedom and strength of your body in equal parts. They will urge you to not only release and flow with the freedom of your breath, but to also dig deep and find the joy in building your strength.
Alignment-based Vinyasa - This class will focus on proper alignment and how to find optimal ease and stability. Centering with breath work first, we move to clear alignment principles that help you feel solid and strong in your body.
