Class Descriptions

Yoga Shanti offers a wide range of classes. Overall, it’s important to know that in a class you take at Yoga Shanti you will never be asked to contort your body. You won’t be asked to push past your healthy physical and mental limitations, but you will break new ground nonetheless! The goal is never to bind yourself to some outer limit. Instead, you will be asked to practice a pose “any amount”.

Shanti Flow

Shanti has a fresh perspective on Flow. It’s not just about sun salutations. These flow classes are designed for students who feel the urge to move seamlessly from one posture to the next with the grace of a dancer and the mindfulness of a yogi.

Shanti Open

This class is for anyone – from avid headstanders to those with a foundational knowledge of yoga. Each teacher has their own style and approach to teaching, making this class ideal for students who are open to diving into the wide world of what yoga has to offer. It focuses on alignment, stability in posture, sequence of poses, use of props, pranayama and deepening personal practice.

Shanti Sculpt

Shanti Sculpt will begin with a gentle warm-up that leads into a heat-building class. Shanti Sculpt will build strength with a focus on abs and glutes while moving and grooving to a killer playlist.

Shanti Beats

Shanti Flow meets Shanti Sweat, a fun upbeat playlist and boom: Shant Beats/Vinyasa Flow! This class is designed for students who feel the urge to move with the music seamlessly from one posture to the next, while building tapas (heat) and having fun in the process. Each class will help link breath and movement, deepening the connection of mind and body. We’ll flow through sequences with intention & direction, while staying true to Yoga Shanti’s signature intelligent sequencing, with a focus on proper alignment, inquiry and creative flow.

Shanti Flow and Restore

Practice opens with a carefully crafted flow to warm the body and move energy, and will wind down with a series of restorative postures with ample use of props. Whether you are sitting at a desk all day, a serious athlete, both or somewhere in-between, your body, mind and soul will thank you for slowing down and taking this class. Come prepared to breathe, restore and renew.

Beginner Class

An inspiring class for beginners, this is a basic level class that is geared towards students who are new to yoga or getting back on the yoga train. Safe and intelligently-sequenced, it will bring you to a place of health and healing through yoga.

Kids Yoga

Peggy will be teaching kids yoga on select Tuesdays this Summer (Beginning July 13, 2021) for kids ages 4 and Up! Classes will be tailored to suit all the kids in the class, incorporating yoga asanas (poses), pranayama (breathwork), meditation and mindfulness — all keeping within the Summer spirit of fun with lots of laughter and play! Please sign up in advance. No need to sign up for all four classes. Click here for more details.

Level One

A class for all ages and generations to come together and explore the nuances of yoga. This class introduces students to all aspects of the practice from sun salutations to inversions. Some students may find it an empowering transition between Beginner’s and Open or Flow classes. But many students find the moderate pace, and breadth of practice an ideal place to stay and make a home in.
