Yoga Classes

Come As You Are.

All Yoga classes are offered at Prakrti and within the Virtual Wellness Studio.

All Prakrti classes require registration due to limited space and my desire to make each session truly accessible to all participants. Registration allows me to make any necessary preparations for individuals who may need speical assistance for unique circumstances. Everyone is welcome at Prakrti. 

Classical Yoga is a complete system of Spiritual Knowledge coming from scriptures within the Vedas, Bhagavad Gita, and Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and handed down by a lineage of teachers. It is universal and non-sectarian and can be practiced by all. Its multifaceted approach is meant to be practiced over a long time instead of assumed a quick fix. The goal of Classical Yoga is Peace and Self-Realization. The teachings within this class are meant to be selfless, to ensure the purity of the practice.

Sunday 4:00 p.m. / Tuesday 7:00 p.m. / Friday 7:00 p.m.

Virtual Visit Studio Session

This Studio class includes a short, gentle yoga asana practice to help prepare your body for coming into stillness. Various styles of meditation will be explored. Meditation Exploration is for those who desire a calmer mind, better health and improved mood, as well as for those who wish to withdraw inward to develop a deeper relationship with his or her true nature. There will be opportunity to share and discuss experiences within the meditation community. No experience necessary.

This gentle yoga class incorporates asana with props as needed, mudra, pranayama, philosophy and meditation practices to help reduce stress related issues such as anxiety, grief, and depression, as well as physical health problems like chronic body pain and adrenal fatigue. TLC Yoga also offers rest from caregiving and offers space for self-care and self-love.

Monday 10:00 a.m.

Therapeutic Yoga enhances the effects of physical therapy by raising self-awareness which allows you to view pain from a different perspective. This class offers techniques from several lineages, and props allow you soften into each pose as you tone your core and develop strength all over, enhance stability and flexibility, reduce stress, connect with your breath, improve focus, and ease pressure in your joints. Contact Advanced Physiotherapy Clinic for more information.

Monday & Wednesday 6:00 p.m.

This class consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body—the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine, penetrating deep into the connective tissues. Yin Yoga is for you if you are tired, over-stimulated, when your energy is too erratic, your mind overactive, whether you are craving for energy or you feel you have too much of it.

Monday 8:00 p.m. & Thursday 7:00 p.m.

Hatha Yoga is ‘the means of attaining a state of yoga through force’, and includes asana, pranayama, mantra, mudra, shatkriyas and shatkarmas and types of visualisation. Prakrti offers all aspects of Hatha Yoga in most classes, but a Hatha Yoga class at Olympia will typically involve a set of physical postures with focus on breath connection. Postures are practiced slowly with static holds more than found in Vinyasa or Ashtanga classes. Contact Olympia Athletic Club for more information.

Tuesday & Thursday 5:30 p.m.

Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation also known as “yogic sleep” or “effortless relaxation”. The practice draws our attention inward as we fluctuate between states of wakefulness and sleep. The breath balances and becomes quiet, the unconscious and conscious aspects of the mind reveal themselves, and we fall into an innate state of deep, blissful awareness. Here, we deeply experience yogic teachings such as feeling our interconnected wholeness and becoming aware of our true nature.

Wednesday 8:00 p.m.

Spiritual Health is for individuals dedicated to enhancing their well-being by exploring the relationship between spirituality and health. You will learn yogic philosophies and practices and how these practices can be applied within your daily life and within personal and professional relationships. Through an in depth study of yogic teachings, practices, and applications, you will undergo a journey into the ancient teachings from a practical standpoint.

Thursday 10:00 a.m.

This is for the beginner who isn’t comfortable in a mixed level class. We focus on fundamental poses, using props to explore different variations and developing a new level of body awareness and connection to breath. Here we realize our bodies are uniquely made and begin to understand that yoga is more than a one size fits all type of exercise. Instead it’s a unique, holistic practice tailored to each person who comes to the mat.

Friday 5:30 p.m.

This Fifth Sunday Special class typically involves only five or six poses, supported by props that allow you to completely relax and rest. Poses are held 5 minutes or more, and include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends. Class will end with a guided Yoga Nidra to help promote even deeper rest.
