Grotto Yoga Experience

Grotto Yoga is a space that strives to honor the many different lineages of yoga as well as celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of teachers. The Grotto philosophy welcomes everyone regardless of their yoga or climbing level of experience. Currently on the schedule Grotto offers Hatha classes, Vinyasa, Restorative, Pranayama and Meditation, as well as myofascial release. Grotto’s intentions are to provide many different workshops, immersions, trainings, retreats and opportunities for yogis and climbers alike.

Yoga Classes

Bliss Hour

This class offers a mix of Hatha flow and deep steady postures suitable for beginners and advanced students looking for a healthy way to stretch and get deeper into their flexibility. Class is often compared to a “meditation in motion” where the body takes on various shapes while the mind remains focused and relaxed.

Power Yoga

A yoga experience that offers a slow pace and long breaths as a way to foster presence and depth. Students are encouraged to move with authenticity and understanding of their own anatomy. Power Yoga is intelligently sequenced and is appropriate for all levels. This practice builds physical and mental strength leaving students confident and comfortable within one’s own skin.

Yoga and Myofascial Release

The fascial system runs from head to toe, connecting every muscle, bone, nerve, artery, vein, and internal organ. Because the fascia surrounds and attaches all of these structures, it creates a strong support system within the body. Muscles and/or nerves can become tethered together by bound up fascia or scar tissue from surgery, injuries, repetitive movements, poor posture, or poor biomechanics, causing restricted movement and/or pain. This class will target commonly tight areas of the body using balls, foam rollers, stretching, and a little flowing to help improve biomechanics, re-pattern the fascial system, and reduce pain, tension, and stress. All levels welcome.

Lunchtime Vinyasa

An active, flowing practice cultivating balance, strength, flexibility and awareness. Strong emphasis is placed on safe alignment and use of breath within each posture. Challenge your body and focus your mind while working through dynamic sequencing building toward advanced variations. Appropriate for all levels of students.

Candlelight Vinyasa

Candlelight Vinyasa is a breath to movement yoga class, designed to wind down the night. A slower pace matched with a focus on moving deliberately and meditatively through transitions under candlelight creates a unique intimacy. Every class ends with an optional guided candlelight meditation.

Candlelight Hi Lo Flow

Balance. Half Vinyasa half Yin. Candlelight Hi Lo flow begins with Vinyasa sequence that transitions into a Yin sequence. Breath 2 movement transitions to finding stillness for an extended period. The pace slows all the way down as we end with an optional candlelight meditation. This experience is designed for students to feel the contrast between the two styles, as we wind down toward the weekend. Held every Thursday. In the still of the night.

Vinyasa for Conditioning

Specific and concise alignment cues and hands-on adjustments make this class accessible for all levels. Students can expect thorough flow sequence that cultivates strength, flexibility, joint conditioning and stress relief. Perfect for climbers, this class teaches how to create calm within a challenge.

Balance & Restore

Balance and Restore focuses on intelligent postural sequences, correct alignment, conscious breathing and so much more. This class will include a variety of poses suitable for all levels while encouraging students to reflect on the principles of yoga that apply to everyday life.

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time staying in one asana for up to five minutes or more. Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body, the tendons, fascia, and ligaments, with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.
