Keeping Things Light
Yoga is an ancient wisdom tradition and we recognize that it can be intimidating to students at many levels. Although we are driven to respect and preserve this tradition, we will do so in a manner that is simple and accessible. We believe that laughter is the best medicine and one of the keys to a happy, healthy life. We may take the practice seriously, but not ourselves! Indigo Yoga is a place to explore and play and in doing so, to expand and grow. Some of our classes labeled Beats on the class schedule will employ the use of music.
Begin your yoga journey with this series designed to lay a strong foundation for practice and quiet the monkey mind. Series runs for 8 weeks. Please pre-register for this class.
Yoga’s most beneficial and fundamental postures are the backbone of this accessible vinyasa practice. Ideal for those who have graduated from Beginner’s Mind as well as seasoned practitioners interested in refining foundational poses. All levels are welcome in this complete practice, which also incorporates introductory breathwork. All levels welcome.
A quiet yet profound and highly therapeutic practice that is accessible to all students at all levels. The power of Yin is in its long-held relaxed floor postures, which stimulate the deep, connective “yin” tissues of the body, affecting not only the physical body but the energetic body and the mind. Yin practice strengthens the flow of prana or chi, maintains the health of the meridian system of the body and as an added bonus promotes the mindfulness needed for a successful meditation practice. It is a logical balance to dynamic, muscular “yang” forms of yoga or strenuous exercise and ideal for those looking to deepen their practice as students are challenged to sit in the presence of pure awareness.
Yin Plus Reiki
This class encompasses all the healing benefits of Yin Yoga accompanied by the healing touch of Reiki. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation, and promotes profound healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and causes us to be alive. This class is appropriate for all levels.
Designed to provide a safe haven from the stresses of modern life, this multi-modality practice incorporates restorative yoga with Reiki, aromatherapy and mindfulness techniques.

Yoga For Seniors
This class is specifically designed for seniors 55+ who are looking to begin or grow a yoga practice within a group of like-minded and like-aged students. The class will move slowly and gently with modifications to make the practice accessible, fun and safe for older bodies or bodies with physical limitations, those for whom a traditional flow class may not be best. With time and injury muscles tend to stiffen, joints lose their range of motion, and we become more susceptible to chronic problems such as osteoporosis, arthritis and heart disease. Yoga can help slow down the effects of the aging process by maintaining muscle softness and flexibility, keeping the mind alert and awake, encouraging relaxation, and strengthening muscles and joints. Its multi-pronged approach can encourage the body, mind and spirit to remain healthy and strong while reducing the effects of many age-related issues. It’s also a great way to connect with others and make new friends!
Relax your mind, and the rest will follow!
