All Levels Yoga
Most of the classes at the Yoga Tree of Boise are all levels. This means the class has a range of experience from the beginner to the experienced practitioner and everyone is welcome. Our experienced instructors teach to who arrives. Come enjoy the different teaching styles and find a class that fits your full body, mind, and spirit. Each instructor brings their own unique style including gentle yoga, power yoga, vinyasa flow, estatic dance, strength building, flexibility, restoration, and meditation.
This class will be appropriate for whoever shows up on that particular night. It will play with vinyasa if that’s what seems to be called for, or focus on deliberate, centered movement when that’s the ticket. An element of pranayama will be added to each class – focused breathing to bring our awareness to the core of ourselves. Self awareness, self transformation, and self realization, served up with a sense of humor and empathy. Hope to see you there!

In the yogic discipline, the morning is considered as a “divine time” and when an individual’s spiritual energy is at its peak. Clarity, creativity, and peace of mind and body are benefits of a sunrise yoga practice because of fewer distractions prior to starting your day. To achieve optimum personal results, it is recommended to practice yoga in the morning. Sunrise yoga brings your body more energy and nourishes you with a positive attitude to fully prepare for the challenges of the day ahead.
Slow Flow Yoga
This yoga class is a an exploration of postures through a rhythmic flow practice that follows the theme of “Come Find Your Yoga.” Take time for yourself that will encourage deep relaxation, rejuvenation, strength and flexibility. This class will always be different with flows and breath work targeting specific muscular and energetic responses.
Rock ‘n Flow Yoga
This class is more guided instead of instructed. This means yoga experience (6 months or more) and a willingness for movement is necessary for this fast-paced Hatha Vinyasa flow class choreographed to fun, dynamic music to instigate movement and flow. You can expect to enjoy the pure essence of a more fast-paced vinyasa flow (linking posture, breath, and posture) including opportunities to deepen more advanced postures. This class will take on the look, feel and insights of the people who arrive along with a music playlist you can rock ‘n flow to!
These afternoon classes are intended to invite vigor, a bit of heat and oxygen back into the body to rejuvenate during the mid day, leaving the practitioner feeling awake, aware, and full of happiness for the rest of the day. One will leave the mat with a sense of renewal, creativity and vitallity!
