Hello, and thanks for visiting!
If you're new to Sōl Yoga Collective, we get how intimidating it can be to visit. In fact, that's the entire reason we created our community- to bring yoga to the people- all people, including you! Whether you’re new to yoga, or just new to our Collective, here's the short list of what you need to know to get started:
10-15 minutes before class time. Get a tour, meet the instructor, chat with new friends.
Come as you are in your favorite workout clothes. Yoga pants, shorts, tank, or a tee. All classes are barefoot.
Bring your yoga mat, a water bottle and a hand towel. Don’t have a mat? No problem. Borrow one of ours.
BE YOU & HAVE FUN!
At Sōl, we celebrate our unique differences, while realizing just how alike we really are. We want you, just as you are.
Drop your guard, be yourself, and jump in with both feet.
Keep it light, have fun, laugh often.
Your personal transformation is waiting for you.

All Levels Flow: This class is designed to be open and accessible to any level of yoga practitioner.

Dynamic Flow: [dahy-nam-ik] adjective: pertaining to or characterized by energy or effective action. noun: a basic or dynamic force, especially one that motivates, affects development or stability. This class will be a dynamic exploration of yoga asana (postures) that any level of practitioner will enjoy and benefit from.

Essential Oils + Yoga: Learn about the amazing benefits of essential oils & yoga. Essential oils can enhance the uplifting experience of asanas, relax the mind, and invigorate the body. Each week will focus on a new & different oil. A brief tutorial will be covered on the benefits of the oil, which will be applied at the beginning of class and then again at the end. Enjoy the heavenly aromas of essential oils as you relax, rejuvenate, and release. The room will be heated to 80-85 degrees. *bring a towel
Gentle & Therapeutic Yoga: This 60 minute class focuses on calming the body and treatment of stress. We start each class with a check-in to see what everyone needs to work on and build a practice around that information. We'll focus on using the breath and gentle poses to transition into a restful, relaxed state.
Heated Classes: Though we offer many heated classes, we do not reach "hot yoga" temps. We shoot for a room temperature of around 80-90 degrees. Since our room is very large with tall ceilings, there are cooler pockets for those who want a little less. If you crave more heat, place yourself under one of our therapeutic FAR infrared heaters. The benefits of practicing in a heated room (especially with this type of heat) include: pain relief, detoxification, weight loss, improved immune system, stress reduction and better sleep. *bring a towel
Introduction to Yoga: Consider this Welcome to Your Mat 101! We'll focus on the breath and begin slowly working through poses that come together into a flow sequence. If you've ever been intimidated by yoga, this is the class for you! We practice compassion for ourselves and our fellow students in this basics class.
Kids Yoga: Children's classes follow the same pattern of warming, working and savasana but are not as quiet as adult classes because we are having FUN! Based on themes, the class is filled with wonder, exploration, laughter and spontaneous expression. Through the practice of postures and breathing, your child will learn how yoga can help them to relax, concentrate, reduce anxiety and enjoy stillness.
Move to Live, Yoga for Cancer Thrivers: A class for everyone, but especially those being treated for cancer and those who've gone through treatment for cancer. Each week will focus on different topics such as energy, sleep, self care, self confidence, pain relief, stress and anxiety.

Sōl Sunday: Spend 90 minutes of your Sunday morning in reverence with and for yourself. Come to be with your body, your breath and your heart - creating the practice that best honors what you need that day. An opportunity to slow down, get present and re-connect.
Morning Sōl Flow: What better way to start your day than with a morning flow that focuses on you! This is a breath based, modifiable sequence that begins with sun salutations and flows through a standard set of poses. This practice will get you centered and energized by 7:30 am, ready to step into your day fully present and energized! Imagine feeling like you have conquered the day by 8am and say goodbye to that mid-afternoon energy crash. Join us for our morning Sōl (sun) Flows and feel the difference a regular morning practice can make!
Yin Yoga: A slow and deep practice perfect for anyone seeking balance in a constantly moving world. Yin yoga is a practice of floor work, fewer poses, held for a longer duration of time to target connective tissue and facilitate deep release. It is also based on the philosophy of using compression and gentle therapeutic stretch to allow free flow movement of energy through the organs and energy meridians in the body. Through a combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine and yoga asana (postures), we work with balancing and unblocking those energy meridians. Find relaxation, stress relief and a deeper connection to yourself.
Yoga-tallica: As the name suggests, this heated class is a bit non-traditional! Expect a class full of life, spice and everything nice. A philosophical yoga theme will be offered and reflected upon throughout. Warm-ups will be anything from standing joint movement to dynamic swinging of the limbs to gentle pelvic tilts, all meant to warm the spine. This class moves around the room with walking, skipping, light jogging, bear crawls, sumo lifts and hara pulls - all designed to stimulate blood flow and build pranayama. Light calisthenics are followed by an intermediate vinyasa flow. Music during this class can range from tasteful hip hop to classic rock and even some Metallica. Breath work, meditation and body awareness are never missed. Intended to feel primal with an invitation to experience something different. A celebration, indeed!
Zen: A total state of focus that incorporates togetherness of body and mind. In this class you will find yourself moving deeper into your body through breath and asana (postures). We will move with intention and strength while allowing the body to find ease and a bit of gentleness. Come experience what it's like to slow down your mind enough to really unite with the body. This class is for all levels.
*Teacher in Training & New Teacher Classes: It is important to us here at Sōl to provide a platform for teachers to get out there and begin teaching. The biggest hurdle that a new teacher faces is to simply begin! Sōl Yoga Collective is unique in their support of new teachers by removing the obstacle of "auditioning" before being allowed to lead a class. True learning comes from doing. This is our aim here. We hope you will come to show your support and cheer our new teachers on. Every talented and impactful teacher was once brand new.
