Yogaspace offers both a 4 week Introduction to Hatha Yoga workshop and a 4 week Introduction to Vinyasa Yoga workshop for beginners. Hatha Yoga is a moderate practice providing time and space for the mind and body to receive and respond. Vinyasa Yoga is a dynamic practice, inextricably linking movement and breath to create a deeply therapeutic effect. In both practices, students develop strength and flexibility while learning to consciously balance effort and rest.
Which style you choose is entirely dependant on your temperament and what you are looking for in a Yoga class. For example, if you are an energetic person who enjoys alot of movement and you are interested in a more athletic or dance-like practice, we would recommend Vinyasa Yoga. On the other hand, if you are looking for a moderate Yoga practice emphasizing a slow, deep approach to stretching and strengthening, we would recommend Hatha. The other thing you could do, is try both. Please do note that we introduce the foundations of Vinyasa Yoga very slowly.


These classes are suitable for everyone including those new to the practice of Yoga, individuals with movement limitations and anyone who suffers from chronic fatigue, adrenal fatigue or insomnia. Also a highly beneficial counter practice for anyone with an ongoing dynamic physical practice of any kind.

All Levels

These mixed level classes are suitable for all students. Emphasis is on alignment and breath detail with options for students to go deeper. Students are always encouraged to honour internal signals to slow down, take a break and digest as they increase understanding and experience. In All Levels Vinyasa classes, expect to sweat.

Mysore Self Practice at Yogaspace is specifically designed to be accessible to ALL students. Here, students ranging from absolute beginners to advanced practitioners have the opportunity to work one on one with the teacher in a group context, progressing through the Primary series of Ashtanga Yoga at their own unique pace.

Level 1-2

These classes assume that students have previous experience in the specific style offered. We move progressively through sequences designed to prepare the mind and body for more advanced postures and core awakening work. Here we courageously explore self imposed limitations and playfully flirt with our edges. Expect to sweat deeply!

Level 2

These classes are suitable to experienced practitioners who are very comfortable in a level 1-2 class and interested in progressing in their practice.

Mysore/Self Practice (Hot)

Mysore practice is taught to students one-on-one within a group setting. Students begin learning the sequence of asanas (postures) and proper breathing, gradually, with guidance from the teacher. Mysore is a practice for all levels and abilities. New students will be guided slowly. There is no need to fear trying this practice, even if you are a total beginner. The format of the practice always remains the same; it begins with Surya Namaskar (sun salutations) and concludes with Padmasana (seated posture) and taking time for rest. The various asanas gradually fill the space between. The system is designed to purify and strengthen the body while the focused breath and gazing points direct the focus inward, and bring stillness to the mind. It is through the daily practice of Ashtanga Yoga that the benefits of this method can truly be felt. A slow, dedicated and patient approach is best. The Mysore program at Yogaspace, led by Authorized Level 2 Teacher Amica Hilton is a yoga program dedicated to teaching traditional Ashtanga Yoga as taught by Shri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009), R. Sharath Jois, and Saraswati Jois at the Shri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India. Mysore is a practice for all levels and abilities. We welcome both experienced practitioners, as well as new students. * This class takes place in a heated room. (All)
NEW STUDENTS: New students should allow for 45 minutes to an hour for their practice and may arrive anytime between 6:30am and 7:45, keeping in mind, they must be finished their practice by 8:25.

Led Primary Series

This class is a complete practice, moving through the entire Ashtanga Primary Series. Primary series is also known as Yoga Chikitsa, or yoga therapy and its aim is to purify the physical body and bring stillness to the mind. During this vigorous practice students will be guided through the postures and breathing patterns at a steady pace. The teacher will lead the class through the series of postures and count each breath/movement in Sanskrit. In this way the student can learn the proper breathing/movement patterns and correct transitions. The idea is to move through the series without the attachment to perfecting each posture. Performing each pose with its proper Vinyasa to the best of our ability and accepting our present conditions. The class is meant to challenge, but not to overwhelm and is an opportunity to feel the true power of the series. Some experience with the Primary Series is recommended, as this class is a little faster passed and challenging. New students should start with Mysore classes and/or speak to the teacher about joining this class. 2

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa Yoga is a dynamic practice in which each movement is linked to the breath. Emphasizing the relationship between intelligent alignment, deep core work and conscious breathing, we encourage students to use the postures to “listen in” and creatively explore individual movement potential both in the postures and their transitions. Our interest is in creating a therapeutic effect rather than on using the body to attain the “perfect pose”. The way we see it, Vinyasa Yoga is as much a form of art as it is a science. To this end, most often, carefully chosen music is incorporated into these classes to inspire the spirit and deepen the breath. Warm classes – room heated to 30°. All Levels, Level 1 and Level 1 – 2

Vinyasa 2

This class is specifically suited for experienced yoga practitioners who wish to engage in vigorous hatha yoga flow, as well as workshopping more advanced postures such as arm balances and backbends, all the while learning how to incorporate the depth of yoga philosophy directly into their practice. Our class will find its perfect completion by finishing with meditation and chanting. 2

Yoga/Pilates Fusion

This class fuses Vinyasa sun salutations, asana and pranayama with core strengthening Pilates and Barre exercise. A creative, challenging, mind body experience rooted in yoga, energized in pilates and influenced by dance conditioning.

Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga is a slow moving practice that encourages mindful embodiment. Postures are held long enough to feel the subtle dynamic affect of the breath and the small changes, shifts, and adjustments happening in your body. It is a practice of exploration and discovery through movement and stillness, where you can let go of ambition and insecurities in order to nurture a state of presence and self-inquiry. You’ll be pleasantly surprised how engaging it is to move slowly. All Levels/Gentle, Level 1 and Level 1-2.

Our active practice is guided by the breath as we explore postures of strengthening and balance, eventually returning to deeply restorative postures to finish the practice. Gentle/All levels (All)
