All of our classes at b|e. are founded on the notion of empowerment. Our goal is to inspire and encourage YOU. All classes are all levels, designed for every|body, whether you’ve never practiced or have practiced for eons. Emphasis is given to practicing yoga: building your practice and adapting the yoga postures to your body to support you…not adapting your body to the yoga postures.
All classes are offered in a warm environment. While the temperature generally runs between 85 and 90 degrees, some classes vary depending on the teacher and needs of the students. Hot summer days for example may invite windows open for a nice breeze. Regardless, we try to maintain a healthy level of humidity to ensure the body’s/skin’s natural balance as well as to encourage one of the human body’s best heat regulating and detoxifying functions: sweating.
b|e. in Union yoga vinyasa is EMpowerment Vinyasa Yoga (EMVY).
Vinyasa simply means incorporating breath with movement. The physical aspect of the practice helps builds strength, muscle length, alignment, mobility, and better bodily function overall. The physical asanas are tools to access the yoga–less stress is placed on the heat or the power aspect of the practice and more focus is placed on using the asanas and movement to breathe, to build awareness and connection to your mind and body.

Bump Your Flow
Using music as a powerful meditative tool sometimes allows us to transcend the chaos of the external world, to get out of our heads and just do. Power Flow + Music = Bump your Flow.
Go beyond the physical experience. Transformation happens when you stop trying. The focus of this class is to use the elements of the physical practice to turn our attention inward, to clearly see our habitual patterns, the fluctuations of the mind, so see what we cling to, our perceptions, deceptions, how we relate to the world around us. We’ll work to bring our mind, body and breath into alignment and let go of all effort so we can truly begin to live our yoga authentically and unveil and connect to our unique, true self.
This class journeys into the quiet, calm, cool, “yin” side of yoga to restore balance to our bodies, countering the heat and power of “yang” practice and integrates yoga nidra–a conscious state of deep sleep, or deep relaxation. This meditative yoga will reduce everything from your headaches to anxiety, ptsd and everyday stress and bring a bit of clarity and calmness to your mind and body. This all-levels class emphasizes floor poses, extra support with bolsters and blocks and long holds for a luxurious, meditative, integrating practice at the end of a long week.

This class is taught by a runner and new first time mom familiar with all of this birthing and looking to get her body back business.
Pregnancy is not a disability, it’s a state of being and strength. This class isn’t just sitting around holding your belly breathing.
