BHAVA VINYASA

Vinyasa translates to mean “conscious or intentional movement.” Our vinyasa classes are intelligently crafted by each individual teacher to be creative, progressive, and aligned with the breath, leaving the practitioner with a rich curiosity and unparalleled feeling of potential. Expect each vinyasa class to include warm-up, standing postures, core and spine stability, and of course, sweet stillness and time for reflection and contemplation. We offer three different levels of vinyasa classes, each designed to leave a specific feeling or “bhava” in your mind and body: Ground, Align, & Elevate.

 

GROUND

A slower-paced vinyasa class, intended to create a calm and relaxed feeling in your mind and body. Explore postures that invoke a sense of contemplation, like hip openers, gentle twists and forward folds. In addition to movement, this class may also include soothing breathwork and postures supported by props.

Leave feeling grounded, focused, and calm.

All levels welcome.

 

ALIGN

An alignment-based vinyasa class including creative and dynamic movement designed to be uplifting and stabilizing. Enjoy a well-rounded class that may include balancing postures, moderate twists, backbends and basic arm balances. May also include supportive breathwork and the use of props to enhance access to postures.

Leave feeling uplifted, inspired, and balanced.

All levels welcome. 

ELEVATE

Our signature vinyasa class! Designed for anyone looking for an uplifting yoga experience. Enjoy a well-rounded class infused with intention + fluid movement. These classes are intended to elevate your “bhav” or mood. Classes may include more challenging twists, backbends, binds, and arm balances. As always, modifications will be provided! Our team of instructors will always integrate all levels into the classroom.

Leave feeling energized, empowered, and fluid.

All levels welcome.  


BHAVA RESTORE

The ultimate reset! These classes are crafted with stillness and recovery in mind. With the use of props, enjoy supportive postures that allow the mind and body time to sink into rest and digest. These classes include supported reclined and seated poses that gift you time for recovery. Restorative Yoga is the perfect way to balance and enhance your movement-based activity. Expect to use lots of props!

Leave feeling calm, nourished, and restored.

All levels welcome. Great for athletes, active recovery, and general well-being.

BHAVA YIN

Yin yoga is a specific style of yoga that focuses on long resting holds and cultivating stillness. This practice uses props to support active stretching of the deep connective tissue and fascia. Yin yoga is great for easing tension and releasing unwanted stress. The perfect complement to more active (yang) yoga classes and lifestyles.

Leave feeling light, lengthened and refreshed.

All levels welcome. Great for athletes, active recovery, and general well-being.


BHAVA PILATES LAB

Mat pilates is a core-based exercise method that helps to balance the body and improve posture. Expect a strong emphasis on using deep abdominal muscles for both movement and stability, while attending to proper alignment, breathing, mental focus, flexibility, and overall strength training. Pilates can be beneficial on its own or when used to support a yoga practice, or other physical activity.

Leave feeling focused, agile, and strong in your core!

All levels welcome. Great for yogis, strength-building, and core cultivation.

DEEP HIPS + HAMSTRINGS

The movement focus in these classes is on the hips and hamstrings - the roots of your body. Expect a balance of movement + restorative yoga to leave you feeling open and refreshed. 

Leave feeling rooted + renewed. Good vibes only.

All levels welcome. 


Bhava cYoga Lab

A courage builder! cYoga is a dynamic and challenging style of yoga designed to invoke a sense of courage within practitioners as they attempt more challenging yoga postures. Intelligent sequencing will properly prepare the body for peak postures and students should expect to receive hands-on assists and verbal coaching throughout the class. cYoga challenges and motivates every student regardless of their physical abilities. Expect to try something new, work hard, and have a ton of fun!

Leave feeling strong, fearless, and accomplished.

All levels welcome. Great for seasoned yogis, athletes, and those looking to enhance their knowledge and practice of advanced postures!

SUP Yoga

Take your yoga practice out of the studio and into nature! SUP Yoga is low impact, strengthens the core, and creates a strong sense of equilibrium. Nestled on a beautiful pond right up against the Rocky Mountains, this 75-minute session will include a brief introduction to paddling, and an hour of guided yoga on the boards. The class will end with a traditional savasana -- sky above you, water beneath you, and nature all around. A beautiful way to harmonize mind + body + spirit.

Leave feeling rooted, balanced and blissful!

All levels welcome. Suitable for beginner paddlers and yoga practitioners!
