Literally the yoga (union) of the sun and the moon, most forms of yoga in the US are derivations of Hatha yoga. Our Hatha yoga classes highlight asana (posture), pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation. We take inspiration
and best practices from a variety of Hatha yoga traditions to teach classes that are designed for you to understand and integrate the fundamentals of yoga into your lifestyle. Our Hatha yoga classes work with individuals’ needs and abilities. The function and purpose of each pose (asana) is emphasized via safe, anatomically correct practices to help students develop more strength and flexibility. Students will learn basic pranayam (breathing) and meditation practices. A good class choice for beginners, though intermediate and advanced students will also benefit.
The word Vinyasa derives from the Sanskrit roots “nysasa,” meaning “to place,” and “vi” meaning “in a special way.” In this class the poses (asanas) and breath-work, blend together continuously in a dance-like flow of movement. This is an appropriate class for students with some prior yoga experience.
Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan)
This class includes posture (asana), breath-work (pranayam), meditation, and (mantra) chanting in the style of yoga pioneered by Yogi Bhajan. The class teaches techniques to alleviate stress, increase well-being, and experience self-awareness. The class will help you strengthen your body, clarify your mind and elevate your spirit. Appropriate for all levels.
Deriving inspiration from Ashtanga Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, this class tends towards the more intense side of the spectrum and includes of arm and core strengthening plus hip openers.
Slow Deep Stretch (AKA Yin Yoga)
A quiet (though intense) practice that works with the body’s meridian system. Deep hip, shoulder and spine and openers with a slow meditative pace. Yin Yoga is characterized by “quiet body, quiet breath and quiet mind.”
Gentle and Restorative Yoga
Restorative yoga helps us learn to relax, rest deeply, and rejuvenate. During deep relaxation all the organ systems of the body benefit, blood pressure reduces, “good cholesterol” levels increase, and we find improvement in digestion, fertility, elimination, insomnia and generalized fatigue. This class is appropriate for beginners, people with limited movement and/or health issues, as well as anyone wanting to reduce stress.
This class is for children ages 2-5 (clear younger children with a phone call to at One yOga 707-485-4439) with a caregiver accompanying.

The class focuses on concepts important to the practice of yoga including patience and calm. We also have a lot of fun dancing and moving with props and to music! Class is 45 minutes.
T’ai Chi Ch’uan with Scott Menzies
“Qian zhao shu bu ru yi zhao jing.” (“Familiarity with a thousand moves is not as good as the perfection of one.”) – Tai Ji Quan saying. This class will focus on the most common movements found in the Zheng Man Qing (Cheng Man Ch’ing) 37-step Yang-style form, studied by the instructor in Taiwan, but popular in the U.S. The weekly practice regimen will also include movements drawn from the instructor’s studies of Qi Gong and Tui Shou (Push Hands) in Mainland China. Without having to learn the whole form, attendees will begin to benefit quickly from the practice of Tai Ji Quan, build a solid foundation for the full form, and pick up a little Mandarin Chinese along the way. No experience necessary.
