Our popular Sunday morning classes will continue with Vinyasa too. Continue to join us for:

Stay afterwards for brunch or to lounge by the pool!
Vinyasa Yoga is a flowing, dynamic sequence of poses. Also sometimes called “Vinyasa Flow Yoga,” this type of practice involves synchronizing the breath with a continuous flow of postures. The fluid, almost dance-like movements increase flexibility, strength, and stamina, as it calms the mind and improves overall health.

The literal translation of the Sanskrit word “vinyasa” is “to place in a certain way.” It refers to a certain sequence of poses that are performed in a particular order. Today, it also refers to the style of yoga that focuses on breathing in conjunction with body movement.




This month we’re kicking off our yoga Wednesdays with a class that Melissa has designed to get back to basics and find our best form.

Join us every Wednesday as we do focus classes together!

We hope you can join us for our October yoga schedule! Any questions or for booking enquiries email us at


About Your Instructor Melissa Lingo

Melissa Lingo’s classes vary in intensity but the most important thing to her is that everyone feels welcomed and confident during the practice. She emphasizes that yoga is for everyone, and just because you can’t touch your toes or stand on your head doesn’t mean you can’t get the full physical and emotional benefits from the practice. Every body is different, therefore it’s important to let go of comparisons or expectations for what we should look like when practicing and focus instead on how we feel. She designs her classes with an equal desire to share physical postures that build strength and flexibility with yogic philosophy and science to deepen the understanding of what we’re doing on the mat.
