Heated Flow

Our Hot Yoga classes are energetic, fun, and diverse. With creative transitions and pose sequencing, you will build an inner fire using both your breath and body. These classes aim to get you in better alignment both physically & mentally. Come soften into your fire and connect to your heart!


Barre is the UlTIMATE sculpting workout. We fatigue each major muscle group through low impact, high intensity movements. This class increases agility & flexibility. Get ready to shake & burn to the beat!

Warm Yin

Warm Yin is offered in a 80-ish degree room. Yin targets the deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues–ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body– rather than the muscles. Come step out of doing and into being. In this class we sit with the discomfort and transmute it through patience and breath.


Kaiut works with the body in the way that the body was designed by nature to move. This is an inclusive method, using simple shapes to create a format of yoga accessible to all practitioners regardless of flexibility, strength, age, or experience. The method aims to deliver consistent long-term healing results as opposed to creating aesthetic shapes. It has been designed to work through chronic pain & injuries, general aches & stiffness, and work for the inflexible, hyper flexible and the aging body. Kaiut is intended to increase freedom of movement.

Strong Nation™

STRONG Nation™ is a high-intensity, total-body workout that will build your cardio & your confidence at the same time. The high-energy routines tone every muscle group by combining plyometric movements, like high knees, with isometric movements, like lunges. Class consists of 4 quadrants reverse engineered to the beat, motivating you to push yourself to your limits & find your inner warrior. This class is HARD but is adaptable to suit all levels ready to push themselves! Bring your active shoes & a mat you can step on!

Qi Gong

Our lovely Qi Gong classes are lead by Lee on the outside patio. Come find your breath, fluidity & move that energy within you!

Kids Yoga

Yoga, mindfulness and play for kids. Building strength, balance and confidence! We sing mantra, get the wiggles out, and relax. Come groove! Recommended ages 5+

Dance Cardio

This class is an energy packed full body workout. It consists of a warm up, guided movement/choreography, strength training & stretching. Bring your sass & get ready to smile & sing while you sweat. Don’t forget your athletic shoes!

Dahlia Mama

Rebecca Raas, founder of Dahlia Mama Village, is a behavioral support coach + yoga & mindfulness guide. She leads Pre/postnatal Yoga, Parent+Tot Yoga, as well as Tots Playgroup+Parenthood Circles. If you’re looking for support with your little one, Dahlia Mama’s got you covered!

Slow Flow

This class is also fluid in form. We gracefully transition from one posture to the next guided by the song of the breath. Come get out of your head & into your body.

Breath & Body Basics Clinic

This offering is considered to be a yoga clinic, in that discussion is encouraged and there is ample space for questions to be asked and for individual attention to be offered as we explore the forms in each person’s unique body. Gentle suggestions are provided, props and modifications are explored, and loving adjustments may be given based on the preference of each individual. In addition to embodying a variety of yoga asana or forms in the body, we will practice simple breath practices to support you each week and to carry you into the week ahead. All ages, abilities, shapes, and sizes are welcome to join, play, learn, and explore together.”

About our Teachers

Becca Detwiler

It is my intention with every class to open and deepen the connection to yourSelf. Using the body and breath as a gateway into the here and now, and observing what unfolds within.

Carlie Stewart

Carlie took her first yoga class in 2014. She immediately fell in love with the asana practice and quickly began to explore the practice beyond the mat. With a 200hr YTT program, and  accumulating continuing education regularly she is a dedicated student first to this practice.  Carlie is passionate for yoga and holds deep reverence for the yoga philosophy. She is playful and fun but deeply devoted to the work, the practice, and the depth of this beautiful journey. She holds space and encourages her students to release all expectations and let yoga do the work. 

Eden Orrick

Eden grew up in Northern California & spent her life relating and understanding the world through the body. She left the professional world of dance pulled by a desire to share the healing potential of movement. A student of the ancient practices of yoga, she works with the 8-limbs striving to integrate the practice as a way of life. Eden travelled to India in 2015 and studied at the Himalayan Yog Ashram for her 200hr YTT. She is currently working on her 300hr YTT with Janet Stone. Eden’s classes help us to release some of the issues we’ve built up in our tissues. They are designed to be for anyone, wherever you may find yourself on this journey we call life. She aspires to build a safe place for you to put down what you’ve been carrying, touch into the essence of all that you are, and step into your voice, your power, your truth. May we age with grace, and humbly revere these sanctuaries we call home.
