Class Descriptions

Elizabeth Yoga Instructor at Gogo Guru Yoga

Community Class - Donation-based vinyasa class. Everyone welcome!

Yoga 4 Beginners - Introduces new and continuing students to the fundamental principles of pose alignment and breathing in the basic standing, seated, and reclining poses.

Vinyasa Classes - Flowing posture sequences built around sun salutations set to music. Balance effort with a sense of lightness and curiosity.

Chakra Vinyasa Take a journey through the chakras in this transformative and energizing practice. We'll purify and open blocked energy in the body, mind and heart. This class will leave you feeling grounded, balanced and connected to the light within.

Flo 'n Go Vinyasa Get your week started right with this faster paced, all-levels vinyasa class.

Freedom Vinyasa w/ Michele Bickley at various times throughout the week
An all-levels vinyasa practice that emphasizes personal expression, individual modifications and all-around creativity and fun! Michele specializes in yoga therapy and provides excellent hands-on adjustments.

Hot Power Vinyasa
A lively, energetic, flow built around sun salutations in a hot room (~90 degrees). You are guaranteed to sweat and explore more endurance, strength, and flexibility. The heat is both a way to hone your concentration and to release toxins naturally.

Rise & Shine Vinyasa
Start your morning right with flowing posture sequences set to music. Balance effort with a sense of lightness and curiosity and float into your day. 

Vinyasa Flow
Continuous movement linked with the breath creates a fluid, dance-like sequence that challenges the body and stills the mind. Get lost in the flow and come out feeling refreshed.

Weekend Warrior Vinyasa
A vigorous vinyasa flow that includes up-level variations like arm-balancing and inversions.

Zen Vinyasa
Gentle, slow-moving vinyasa for those who want to bring a deeper awareness to their body and breath through grounding techniques and some Tai Chi-inspired movements. All-levels welcome.

Intro to Ashtanga: The Primary Series - 8 Weeks
This is an 8 Week series going from June 23rd to August 25th (No Class on Aug 4th and 11th).
Learn in a progressive manner the powerful Yoga Therapy that is traditional Ashtanga Yoga. An athletic style that is the basis of all flowing styles of American yoga, this set routine builds muscle strength, flexibility, and aerobic endurance while balancing all the body's structures in a way that allows you to feel yourself improving with each (encouraged) daily practice. Week one will focus primarily on Surya Namaskara A so you will feel comfortable practicing it daily; week two will add Surya Namaskara B and more of the standing asanas. Each week more will be added until you are able to take part in the Half Primary class with confidence!

Ashtanga Yoga: Half Primary Series (On Going Class)
This class is for experienced yogis and those who have taken the Intro course at least once; it will be taught the way Sri Pattabhi Jois taught, with the Surya Namaskar counted in Sanskrit and the Sanskrit asana names used. Any modifications that you have been taught for this series may be used until you are ready to progress and hands'-on assistance will be provided (you are always free to refuse an assist if you feel it necessary, please speak to the instructor before class about any physical issues as she may be able to help you modify). We will work consistently up to Navasana and be introducing more of the closing sequence.

Candlelight Mid-Week Restore
See Restorative for description.

Family Yoga (Parent and Child class)
This 8-week series allows children and adults to spend quality time together, while enjoying and exploring the benefits of yoga. Children learn strength, balance, and focus in a fun and supportive environment. Parents/guardians also get a nice stretch, and get to enjoy partner yoga with their children.

In Family Yoga, we practice fun-filled yoga poses and breathing exercises to promote:
• Physical strength and flexibility
• Concentration, focus and attention
• Inner strength and body awareness
• Confidence and self-esteem
• Relaxation and self-control
• A feeling of well-being and respect for others
• Love for one's self, inside and out

Hour of Power
This slow and meditative practice takes you through a variety of standing and reclining postures aimed at strengthening the lower joints and spine, while inviting you to explore the differences between your right and your left. Hone your attention to the building blocks of asana practice: the tiniest muscles, the role of the breath, the power of relaxation between poses.

Lunch-Hour Meditation (NEW CLASS STARTING SEPTEMBER 25)
Come try out this 30-minute seated meditation! Karen holds the space and provides some guidance and instructions about meditation. Suggested Dontation of $5, cash only.

Slow Go Yoga (NEW CLASS STARTING SEPTEMBER 25)
Whatever your age, or reason, this class is designed to address your need to move slowly. Accommodations are made for each individual, using chairs or props when needed. The entire body is stretched and renewed. Special attention to balance is included in each class, which ends in a 15 minute deep relaxation.

Prenatal Yoga
This class is for expectant moms, who want to take care of both themselves and baby. In a nurturing and light-hearted space, learn how to feel more comfortable, strong, relaxed and confident about labor and birth. You will practice poses and relaxation techniques, learning tools to help you prepare for your birth experience.

Restorative and Candlelight Mid-Week Restore
A gentle and slow-moving sequence of postures that allows you to deeply relax, renew and restore. Includes deep breathing techniques, meditation and the use of props.


Gogo Kid Classes ~ creating the foundation for a lifetime of health and wellness!

Also see Family Yoga above for children 7-10 & their parent / guardian.

Mini Yogis (Ages 3-7)
In this 45-minute class, we explore, imagine, sing, and play while learning yoga poses, breathing, and creative movement. During each fun adventure, children experience the endless benefits of yoga…focus, balance, relaxation, connection, and building strength.

Kids Yoga (Ages 6-12)
In an empowering, non-competitive environment kids will play with yoga poses, breathing, and activities. Yoga helps build strength, concentration, balance, and flexibility and creates the foundation for a lifetime of health and wellness.
