Class Descriptions

At Inner Fire Yoga, all of our classes are heated. HOT yoga and the 75-minute version of Inner Fire Flow are warmer than power flow classes, though you’ll warm up and sweat in all the classes. Heaters are turned off for yin, though rooms will still be warm from previous classes.

All HOT and Inner Fire Flow classes and most of the power flow classes are all-levels classes, so beginners and experienced practitioners alike will be challenged. If you are new to yoga, you might want to start with our Slow Flow classes, though you’re welcome to jump right in with the others, as well.

HOT
HOT Yoga is a series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises performed in precise order, in a heated room. You will sweat and you will leave feeling great! This classical style hatha yoga class systematically works the entire body, stretching muscles, building foundational strength, detoxing internal organs, stimulating the glandular systems, and challenging the cardiovascular system. This 90-minute class is appropriate for beginners and more experienced students alike. It is truly a complete mind-body workout. Your focus will improve, your mind will become clear, your body will detox and you will feel as if you are floating out of class. A regular HOT practice can even reverse the effects of poor posture and chronic ailments.

Power Flow
Ready to feel amazing and rejuvenated? Then our heated Power Flow yoga is for you. These classes feature teacher’s-choice sequencing that gets you moving, breathing and sweating through challenging, yet invigorating flow yoga classes that heal, detoxify and electrify! Inspiring music helps create the complete power flow experience that will improve flexibility, as well as sculpt, hone and tone the muscles of your body and your mind.

Power Flow classes may include several vinyasa flows, spinal twisting, long holds for maximum strength, focused abdominal work, inversions and arm balances. Keen focus, concentration, control of breath, and determination are required – a willingness to reach higher and burn brighter!

To attend an Intermediate-level class, a regular and established power flow yoga practice is required.

Inner Fire Flow
This class blends the best of both worlds: a moderately paced vinyasa flow with some longer holds and plenty of heat! Inner Fire Flow is a sequenced class — meaning it is always the same order of poses — which combines many of the foundational classic yoga poses found in a HOT yoga class with well known Power Flow sequences. Because it is the same sequence every time, it enables practitioners to let go of external focus, calm the mind and experience the moment to its fullest, connecting being with breath. It’s a graceful, fun and challenging class that includes music. An Inner Fire Flow class will leave you feeling strong, energized, cleansed and centered. This class is offered in both a 60-minute sequence and a 75-minute sequence.

Slow Flow is a mindful, slowly paced yoga class that incorporates conscious flowing of breath with movement of body. This class is appropriate for beginners and brand-new students. The challenge in the class is from awareness of movement that is slow and focused. Therefore, this class can be a welcome change for students who like a fast-flowing, more intermediate-level class as well. This class will build strength through slow, focused movements, will detoxify cells through breathing and sweating in the warm room, will increase flexibility and range of motion via flowing movements and deep stretching. It includes focused and gentle opening of the body and spine, foundational yoga poses and sun salutations, attention to detail on breath and alignment, and some long holds for strength. Keen focus, concentration, control of breath, and determination are cultivated in Slow Flow, plus a willingness to reach higher and burn brighter!

Aroma Flow
Deeply therapeutic yoga and pure essential oils are key elements in this serene class. We keep the heat up and turn the lights down to encourage a tranquil practice. Imagine a slow and controlled flow, followed by restorative poses with luxurious neck elixirs and invigorating foot rubs. Fine aromas mist over you during long holds and class finishes with refreshing cool towels. You’ll release stress, melt away tension, and prepare your body for nighttime.

Candlelight Flow
In this all-levels meticulously paced class, you’ll focus on strength, flexibility and relaxation. We light candles and provide a serene atmosphere and precise, attentive instruction. You roll out your mat, let your day slip away and ease into the evening. In Candlelight Flow, you can expect to build muscle, lengthen your whole body and enjoy the meditative qualities of nighttime yoga. Inspire your practice and ignite your spirit.

Yin
Yin yoga works deeply into muscles and connective tissues through extended holds of grounded postures. These one-hour classes are great for those looking to restore flexibility and/or work deeply into joints and tissues that are “locked up” from past injuries or from repetitive motion. Yin yoga specifically targets the hips, pelvis and lower spine. The challenge from this class comes from staying deeply in a stretch for an extended period of time – by going beyond the point of wanting to “give up”. The focus is less on strength building and more on restoration, de-stressing and relaxation. For many students, this class is one of the most challenging, yet totally relaxing experiences they have.

Sculpt
Sculpt Flow blends power flow yoga with resistance training, so it offers the zen of a yoga practice and the calorie burn of a high-intensity fitness class. Plus, it’s fun. Set to energizing music, this class will boost your metabolism as you tone and sculpt every major muscle group and improve flexibility. In short, it’s yoga awesomeness!
