An all levels class is a vinyasa yoga practice in a heated room. Vinysasa yoga is a vigorous series of postures linked with movement that will open and cleanse your body, strengthen and lengthen your muscles, and calm, soothe, and open your mind. “All levels” means that if you’ve never practiced or you’re an experienced practitioner, you’ll feel at home, challenged, and at ease. Prana Power Yoga is about empowering you to be you–where you are now–and feeling great about that, while also empowering you to grow beyond your wildest dreams. The All Levels Class is the fertile ground for this growth. And always remember, no matter where you are on your yogic path, listen to your body and rest when you need to in child’s pose. Unless otherwise noted, we heat our studios to a comfortably sweaty 95-99 degrees Fahrenheit to create “tapas” (healing heat for your body, mind, and spirit), help you to sweat out toxins–including negative thoughts, replicate the heat of India where yoga originated over 5000 years ago, and to assist you in transforming to your pure potential on all levels.

Hour of Power
One of our most popular classes, the hour of power is simply our all levels class (see above) that is 60 minutes long instead of 75 or 90 minutes long. Unless otherwise noted, we heat our studios to a comfortably sweaty 95-99 degrees Fahrenheit to create “tapas” (healing heat for your body, mind, and spirit), help you to sweat out toxins–including negative thoughts, replicate the heat of India where yoga originated over 5000 years ago, and to assist you in transforming to your pure potential on all levels.
All Levels (Not Hot)
This class is our usual vigorous vinyasa flow, but taught in an unheated (80 degrees) studio. The Prana Power Yoga standard, it incorporates the perfect blend of physical and spiritual challenge. The unique structure of this Prana Power Yoga class will provide you with a challenge no matter where you are: whether you are new to yoga or already have an established practice, you will sweat, cleanse, tone and detoxify your body. we welcome modifications in any pose. Prana Power Yoga is about you, your unique needs and path.
This class is taught by a teacher trainee or recent graduate and is offered to the public at a discount.
Even though our All Levels Class is for all levels–including people who’ve never practiced ever–we still have students request a “beginners” class, so we created this basics class. You’ll still do the famous Prana Power Yoga flow, but it will be a bit slowed down and certain more advanced poses will not be offered. If you’re new to this practice, you’re totally fine in the All-levels but if you feel more comfortable starting with the fundamentals, go for it!
Basics (Not Hot)
This class is the same as our typical basics class – perfect for beginners – and taught in an mildly heated atmosphere (80 degrees).
This class is geared to students who already have a strong foundation in Prana Power Yoga (approx 20+ all-levels classes). You will get the same basic Prana Power Yoga, but be ready to take what you know and deepen it: new poses, advanced variations on basic poses, and increased emphasis on holding challenging poses are the hallmark of this class.
This 90 minute class is a therapeutic and invigorating collection of postures suitable for students at all levels. While it is a whole body practice, there is more emphasis on spine strengthening and weight bearing compressions for the joints. While the sequencing is similar to a bikram style class, it differs in that there is more flow and more variation in the poses. It does not include the chaturanga dandasana “yoga push-up” so is a wonderful compliment to students in a power vinyasa practice and is also an alternative for those recovering from wrist and shoulder issues.

AcroYoga blends the wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics, and the loving kindness of healing arts. These three lineages form the foundation of a practice that cultivates trust, playfulness, and community. This is an all levels class covering static postures, therapeutic flows, inversion pyramids, acrobatic transitions, calibrations, and progressions.
