Yoga Styles


More than just moving your body, Vinyasa yoga reinforces your ability to flow with your breath. At Black Lotus Yoga, we’ve created a safe, welcoming environment where you can leave the troubles of the day behind and thrive on your mat. Whether you’re an experienced yogi or trying yoga for the first time, you’ll find your happy place in our studio.

Is Vinyasa Yoga a Good Fit for You?

Also called Flow Yoga, Vinyasa uses the breath to link one posture to the next. In this way, transitions are just as important as the postures and can be considered postures in and of themselves. Even when your body is still, you’ll be focusing on deep, relaxing breaths. By strengthening the connection between body, mind, and breath, Vinyasa yoga empowers you to stretch, focus, and practice mindfulness. Sound interesting? Try out a class today.

If you’re dying to just settle in and breathe for a while, Yin yoga may be the perfect fit for you. While it doesn’t involve as much movement as Vinyasa yoga, it’s still a formidable workout that you’ll feel the day after. At Black Lotus, we’re delighted to offer Yin yoga classes for every age and ability.

Explore the Benefits of Yin Yoga

Targeting the deep connective tissues of the body, Yin yoga uses passive floor postures to ensure you return to your day feeling refreshed. You’ll often hold postures for three, five, or even 20 minutes. You’ll learn to relax, breathe, and meditate as long-neglected tissues receive the attention they crave. In short, you’ll dive deep and come back up rejuvenated in mind and body. Yin yoga is easy to modify for ability and can be practiced by almost anyone. The benefits are so powerful, you won’t want to miss out.

Known as the “yoga of awareness,” Kundalini yoga opens your heart, builds strength, and elevates the energy located at the base of your spine. This style of yoga focuses on breath and movement and challenges you both physically and mentally. Secretly practiced for years, this style was first shared publicly by teacher Yogi Bhajan when he came to North America in 1968. Designed to give you a hands-on experience of your highest consciousness, Kundalini is much more than just a system of physical exercises. It is a dynamic, powerful tool for expanding awareness and strengthening your nervous system to excel within a stressful world. Learn more about Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan.
