Types of Classes

All our classes are suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners alike. Each teacher brings their own unique style and lineage to each class, so expect significant variation from teacher to teacher.

Acro Yoga

Acro at Long Center
Acro yogabrings together three disciplines: yoga, acrobatics, and Thai massage.  We will explore these three disciplines and work toward acrobatic partner poses in a progressive way.  No need for prior experience or a partner–we will support you and rotate partners in a safe learning environment. Classes will begin with individual yoga warm up, partner stretching and conditioning exercises and then move into either acrobatic or therapeutic partner poses.  Class will conclude with giving and receiving Thai massage.  Build trust and learn how to better communicate through accurate self-assessment.  Come be a part of this playful and exciting community!

Earth Warrior Yoga

Curated by Henry and Gen, the proceeds of this by-donation class go toward a variety of environmental and First Nations land defence campaigns. These classes feature a rotation of guest teachers from around Vancouver and beyond, teaching a variety of styles. No one will be turned away for lack of funds!

Hatha

A classical yoga style, combining breath and posture to facilitate relaxation and mindfulness. This is a slower style, with more time spent in active poses to build strength, increase flexibility, and to refine alignment.

Karma Class

Karma yoga is the practice of selfless service. These by-donation classes, taught by a different teacher each week, support a variety of non-profit or charitable campaigns. The minimum donation for these classes is $2.

Kundalini Yoga

Cleansing repetitive movement, breath exercises and sometimes dance come together in this empowering practice. Kundalini yoga can inspire personal transformation, and its benefits include weight control, immune system boosting, and relief from depression, stress and insomnia.

Vinyasa I

A dynamic, fiery practice combining breath and flowing movement to build internal heat. Expect a great cardiovascular workout, an emphasis on strength building, and the possibility of getting sweaty!

Vinyasa II

A vinyasa class, plus a little more. Still suitable for beginners, in these classes the teacher will provide levels and options to move into more challenging variations of poses. Inversions, arm balances, and deep back bends are all optional! Come and play!

Restorative Yoga

Time to relax and invite ease into your body. This practice involves using the support of props, gentle postures, and deep breathing to activate the parasympathetic nervous system and lull the practitioner into a state of deep healing. Highly recommended if you desire relief from physical discomfort or stress.

Yin Yoga

A passive, floor-based practise designed to cultivate physical and mental stillness. Non-active poses are held for three to five minutes to access deep connective tissue release, and to invite spaciousness into the mind.
