Buddhi Tribe offers various styles of yoga  including hatha, vinyasa, power, and restorative to meet the needs of our community. We offer both group and private yoga classes. Consider a yoga class for your next special event.


Though we consider our classes open to all levels, the descriptions below can help you choose the class(es) that intrigue you the most. Buddhi Tribe is a community and a safe place. You may not be able to do all the of the poses the beginning, but that’s why you keep going. There’s no winning or being the best at yoga. Even in a class setting, yoga is about you and for you. It’s much more than being able to touch your toes.

Classes at Buddhi will incorporate yogic philosophy, aromatherapy, and gentle physical adjustments. Please let your teacher know if you’d prefer no physical adjustments or have any scent sensitivities.

 Breath & Strength
A flow class that brings awareness to the connection between movement and breath, awakening the body and mind connection. Students will be guided through centering warm-ups and sun salutations, with exploration into inversions, back bends and balancing poses. Come and find your edge! Previous experience is recommended but not mandatory.

Chakra Flow
A gentle to moderate sequence, focusing on 1 chakra center each week. In addition to yoga poses we'll work with affirmation mantras, essential oils, and crystals associated with the chakras.  Essential oils will be used throughout the class, so please alert your teacher to any sensitivities. 

Flow
Strength and breath in a powerful hour flow

Hatha, all levels
Hatha is kind of a default word for yoga. Most forms of yoga in the West can be classified as Hatha yoga. The word “hatha” can be translated two ways: as “willful” or “forceful,” or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance. Hatha yoga originates from the idea of training the body to sit for meditation. Our sequence will always be a little different, exposing you to many different postures that strengthen and lengthen muscles.

Morning Hour Flow
A gentle to moderate sequence focused on letting go of what we’re holding and detoxifying. We’ll focus on our breath, starting our day with gratitude and a feeling of abundance. Twists and deep hip-openers are recurring postures in this class.

Restorative
This practice is where you’ll really see the self-love aspect of yoga. Move through a sequence of postures, staying in each one for several minutes, utilizing props and breath. Relax the body and mind. You’ll learn a lot about the philosophy of yoga in this class and how yoga extends beyond the physical asanas.

Somatic Flow
Somatic Flow is an intermediate level class that enhances the energetic and somatic exploration of yoga by inviting us to focus our awareness in specific ways as we move through postures. This exploration involves moving meditations that connect intention to breath and breath to movement

Tribe Flow
This Sunday class will vary based on teacher. Katie’s class will take you through a sequence that is both challenging and restorative. We’ll play with the use of different yoga props to release tension in our bodies. Some classes will feature guest teachers and some will be donation-based.

Vinyasa, all levels
The word “vinyasa” can be translated as “arranging something in a special way.”  Vinyasa yoga is about moving through poses with synchronization of the breath. Our breath is incredibly important; it’s energy. When we hold our breath, we don’t allow our energy to move and we become imbalanced. The flow of vinyasa has a meditative effect on us. As the breath and movement become fluid, our minds can let go and we can breathe more deeply.
