Warm Vinyasa | Intermediate


This class is taught by:

Rachel Taylor

Rachel, a 500-hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher, began studying yoga in 2006 while pursuing a degree in theater at Skidmore College in New York. Her first yoga class was designed for theater and dance majors as a way to enhance performance elements, but she was immediately drawn to the profound transformative benefits of the practice. Through breath and movement, Rachel started to uncover a stillness of the mind and a sense of empowerment that she strives to deepen every day, both on and off the mat. In July 2012, she completed the 200-hour teacher training program with the Marianne Wells Yoga School in Costa Rica. She completed the Longwave Yoga 300-hour advanced teacher training program in November 2016. Forever learning and always a student first, Rachel is deeply grateful for her many teachers who inspire her every day. Students can expect a unique and challenging vinyasa practice that incorporates an understanding of alignment, sequencing, and patience. Through a creative flow and a spirit of playfulness, Rachel challenges others to compassionately explore their own limitless potential.

Angela David

Angela took her first yoga class in 2011 while recovering from an injury. As a nurse, she knew the importance of maintaining strength and flexibility during her recovery, so she thought she would give yoga a try. "I soon began to enjoy the many physical benefits, and became dedicated to a regular practice. In addition to physical injury, at this time I was also dealing with some significant anxiety and fear. Like many, I initially approached my practice as a workout, a form of exercise, but I soon began to notice a change in my emotional well being. This shift in perspective led me to a deeper exploration of the mind body connection that is yoga. As I learned to link the movements and sensations of the body with the mind and breath, I discovered how to truly be present in the moment. The practice of yoga has taught me to journey inward and examine my own true nature, allowing me to see the light within myself and others, leading me to an abundance of joy and freedom in my life off the mat.” Eager to share the gift of yoga with others, Angela became Yoga Alliance Certified upon completion of the 200 hour Teacher Training Program at Longwave Yoga in May 2015. "Yoga is accessible to everyone, regardless of age, physical ability, or life stage. I look forward to sharing this beautiful, life changing practice with my students." Angela is currently completing the Longwave Yoga 300-Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training.
Vinyasa classes mindfully synchronize intention, breath, and movement. This class will include meditation and pranayama (breath work) to begin, as well as warm-ups and sun salutations that heat the muscles and allow energy to flow more freely. The body will continue to build heat throughout the practice as it flows from one asana (posture) to the next, building physical strength, increasing stamina and reducing stress. The flow-like quality of vinyasa guides the mind into a peaceful and connected place. The pace of the class can vary and each teacher tailors their sequence to their own philosophy, offering diversity and creativity in each class. The heated room will range between 85-95 degrees through the practice, keeping the body supple and promoting flexibility. The heat will be reduced toward the end of the class helping the practitioner transition back into a temperate environment.

The intermediate class is sequenced for those with an established yoga practice of one year or more (or coming from another discipline that highlights body awareness and mechanics.)
