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.
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.
