what we do


We offer many different styles of practice at Commune Yoga, which are rooted in the Awakening Yoga style.

Awakening Yoga is a progressive practice style rooted in hatha vinyasa yoga with an emphasis on accessible and creative movement practices . Patrick & Carling developed this practice style over many years of travel teaching and the privilege of seeing so many diverse bodies in the yoga practice all over the world.

Awakening Yoga pays homage to the ritualistic traditional nature of the practice while incorporating modern movement patterns for today's bodies and minds. We encourage personal creativity, individuality, and freedom of movement from both the teacher and student.

Class Offerings

Solar Vinyasa

A vigorous vinyasa style yoga practice. We strive to create connection between the ritualistic tradition of asana practices with fresh and modern perspectives on body mechanics leaving you feeling stronger, more expansive, and centered after each class.

Intensity levels & personal style varies by each unique teacher.


*Open levels - All levels of practitioner are welcome in these practices, however if you are completely new to the practice of yoga, we recommend you begin with one of our Yoga Fundamentals classes or let the teacher know prior to each class so they can support you as best as possible.

*Experienced - Best for students with a consistent yoga practice. All levels are welcome to attend class however, less modifications will be instructed and students should have a strong sense of their own body & needs.

Lunar Flow

A fluid yoga practice that seamlessly combines postures designed to help you increase flexibility and range of motion.

This practice emphasizes mobility work, requires minimal time weight bearing on the arms and takes an active approach to creating more space in the body and breath.

This is not your average vinyasa yoga class and explores concepts of both yoga and movement to create healthier, more able bodied movers of all ages and abilities.

      *Lunar + Meditation is offered on Saturday & Sunday mornings. This is a combination of Lunar Flow with an additional short meditation to conclude practice.


A skills and drills style yoga practice with a heavy focus on building the tools to go upside down with comfort and ease. This class will teach you how to integrate inversions into regular yoga classes.

You do not need to be able to currently handstand to join. No really, drop your inhibitions at the door and be ready for a fun & challenging exploration into the handstand practice. Only a willingness to participate is required!


Slowing down the body to steady the mind and spirit are the keys to this practice. We will use props and supported shapes to create an easeful, relaxing environment. Some supported postures will be held for a longer period of time to encourage a natural mental and physical softening.

Classes may include Restorative, Myofascial release techniques, Yin, or Yoga Nidra practices.


Suitable for all levels or those new to yoga to learn or deepen the foundations of the practice.

This class will build the practice from the ground up and give you the tools to attend other group yoga classes with confidence.

Special Events & Workshops


Awakening Yoga Practice Intensive


August 17 -19, 2018

Our Yoga practice can walk two paths, one of ritual or one of routine. This practice intensive is designed to bring your asana back to life. The Awakening Yoga practice is built on the foundation of ritual asana with a focus on functional movement and individualized alignment. By acknowledging that each body is unique, powerful, and purposeful, this practice provides room for students to better understand their own physicality.

We all have a certain level of coordination, strength, flexibility, balance, and natural predisposition that serve as tools in our movement toolboxes. To become more aware, we must immerse ourselves in the practice, moving ourselves away from aesthetics and into observation.

Through the course of this three day learning experience you will become fully versed in the Awakening Yoga movement system, introduced to the practice methodology, and discover new awareness of yourself along the way. Join in on this inspiring yoga journey, break your habits, explore new possibilites, and flourish with us! 


*This Intensive program is eligible for 15 hours of Yoga Alliance approved Continuing Education with Patrick Beach & Carling Harps, YACEP.
