You should expect a creative, fun, athletic style that will get your blood flowing and make you sweat but at the same time tap into your potential- get inspired, be empowered and have fun! Every body is welcome, you can always modify poses and flows to fit you.
Yoga is not about perfection- it is about progress. 

Eliza W. instructs the following:
  • Power Vinyasa (Heated)
  • Power Vinyasa ALL LEVELS. This dynamic, energizing and challenging style of yoga links breath and movement through a basic Power Yoga framework combining sun salutations, standing postures and floor work but each teacher brings their own creative touch. The smooth, continuous flow deepens the breath, develops core strength, increases endurance and challenges balance and flexibility. You will leave these classes with a renewed mental and physical energy. The room is heated between 85 and 90 degrees.

  • Heated Vinyasa
  • Heated Vinyasa ALL LEVELS. This can be a moderate to high intensity class which links breath to movement to get the heart rate up and to work the student toward a peak pose or sequence through balance, innovation, and technique. Vinyasa Flow will help to develop physical and mental strength and will lead a gradual physical and mental opening. Sequencing will vary with instructor. The room is heated between 80 and 85 degrees.

  • Aerial Yoga - Level 2
  • So you are already comfortable with your hammock, basic aerial flow and basic inversions – then this class is for you!
    With less time focused on introductions and instruction on our basic flow, we can spend more time exploring deeper inversions, challenging transitions, and more advanced aerial yoga poses!
    Pre-Requisites: You must have attended 2 Aerial Yoga – Basics classes here at FlyDog Yoga before you can join the advanced class.
    It is very important for students to arrive a minimum of 10 minutes before the start of class so that their hammock may be sized properly. Students who do not arrive at least five minutes before the start of class may find their spot has been given to a standby student.
    Clothing requirements: short or long sleeves (no tank tops); no zippers or metal. No jewelry.
    Physical Restrictions: Please talk to the instructor before class if you have any concerns. People who have heart disease, high blood pressure, vertigo, eye diseases (such as glaucoma), or are pregnant should consult their doctors first before trying inversions.
