Classes at Zia Yoga & Wellness will suit the needs of every student from beginner to the advanced, seasoned practitioner. Each class style will offer advanced options for experienced yogis and modifications for those newer to the practice so they can safely learn the poses. The different styles offer our students the opportunity to pick a class that will fit the pace they desire. If you have a specific injury you are minding, please tell your teacher before class so that they can offer you the appropriate, safe modifications or alternative poses.
Also, if you are minding an injury, please inquire with us at firstname.lastname@example.org about private yoga sessions to work with a specific set of poses that will help to encourage healing in the body.
All of our yoga classes are kept between 72-78 degrees.
We like to guide students on how to create their own inner fire.

Yoga Flow - Vinyasa for Mind & Body
Literally translated from Sanskrit, Vinyasa means “connection.” Vinyasa Yoga synchronizes movement with breath which helps the practitioner develop a greater sense of self-awareness, balance, and harmony with themselves and their environment. Vinyasa classes typically include smoothly flowing movements between poses guided by the force of inhales and exhales. Each class is unique but may include the many variations of Sun Salutations as well as standing postures, inversions, backbends, twists, forward bends, and deep relaxation. All levels, although some yoga experience is encouraged.
Yoga Light - Mindful & Soothing Vinyasa
This class provides all the physiological benefits of exercise, soothes the nervous system and mind from over-stimulation, and helps students access true peace and insight. The asana portion of the class is conducted slowly, mindfully, and is led with detailed instruction and is designed to be less physically challenging than our Yoga Flow Classes. This class will allow the student to gain strength and flexibility at their own pace with safety and alignment as the main focus. All levels are welcome. No prior yoga experience required.
Yoga for Every Body
We believe Yoga is for everyone, regardless of shape, gender, age, color or ability. This class is led in a warm and welcoming environment focusing on safe and accessible yoga practices to meet each individual need. Designed for all levels of experience, this class is intentionally slower for grounding and centering to allow time for a mind body connection. Students are guided to move in and out of poses with ease, adapting poses to fit the body, listening intently to what the body needs, and the use of props, chairs, and walls for a safe and confident experience is encouraged. All levels are welcome. No prior yoga experience required.
A quiet yet profound and highly therapeutic style of yoga that is available to all students at all levels. The power of Yin is in its long-held relaxed floor postures. This kind of stretch stimulates the deep, connective “Yin” tissues of the body, affecting not only the physical body, but also energetic aspects of the self. Yin yoga strengthens the flow of prana (life force) or chi, maintains the health of the meridian system of the body, and as an additional bonus contributes to the mindfulness necessary for a successful meditation practice. It is a logical balance to dynamic, muscular, “yang” forms of yoga and/ or strenuous exercise. It is excellent for students looking to advance deeper into their practice as individuals are challenged to sit in the pure presence of awareness. All levels are welcome. No prior yoga experience required.
Relax & Restore
