Yoga is a moving meditation.
The yoga taught at Blackbird is powerful and vigorous focusing on the bandhas, asanas and breath control. Based in the deep awareness of joining mind and body together. Working with the core to control the breath and the strength of the postures you become part of your practice and part of the community. The yoga at Blackbird flows and allows you to challenge your body and mind with focus and intent. You are encouraged to peel the layers away and set yourself free.
Classes held at the Birdhouse are in a HOT studio where you will find a cushioned wood floor supports your practice. Mats and towels are provided but feel free to bring your own. The room will get to around 90+ degrees. Please wear clothing you are comfortable moving and sweating in.
Classes at the Nest are not heated and will be around 70 degrees. You may still sweat but not as much. We do not provide mats or towels in this space (we have a few mats but encourage you to bring your own). Wear comfortable clothing.
Yoga classes run between 1 hour or 75 mins.
