we offer diverse class styles to suit varied interests and abilities in the practice of yoga


class description
our hatha style classes progress with sequences that emphasize building strength, developing flexibility, and creating stability at a light to moderate pace.

in this style of class, each yoga posture (asana) is generally held longer than in our vinyasa style classes, offering you a different perspective from which to explore breath, energy, and alignment. our hatha classes are a good style to try if you are working on building strength in deep stabilizing muscles and stability in your joints.

all levels - beginners welcome
hatha is a great style of yoga for any level of practitioner. new students have more time in each posture to learn and refine alignment, while seasoned practitioners enjoy having more time to explore subtlties of each asana.

if you have no yoga experience, this is a good style of class to start with. please tell your teacher that you are brand new to yoga when you arrive to class, so they can better support you in learning!

class description
in our Vinyasa yoga classes, the teacher will guide you to recruit the powerful actions of inhaling & exhaling to link a series of yoga postures (asanas) together. the fluid, dynamic movements of our vinyasa yoga classes will feel like you are immersed in a moving meditation that is set to the rhythm of your own breath.

each vinyasa teacher at ritual house will guide you through a unique expression of ‘vinyasa’ based on their individual training, practice, and experience.

our vinyasa classes adopt a more accelerated pace than our hatha classes. the heat level (if any) will be noted for each class individually in our online scheduler.

all levels welcome

if you are brand new to yoga, we recommend trying a hatha style class first or signing up for our twice yearly beginner series (email us for information).

forrest yoga

class description
Forrest Yoga is renowned as an intensely physical and internally focused practice that emphasizes how to carry a transformative experience off the mat and into daily life. The practice challenges students to access their whole being and to use Forrest Yoga as a path to finding, and then cleansing the emotional and mental blocks that dictate and limit their lives.

every forrest yoga class includes pranayama (breath work), a core focused warm-up (not your average crunches from gym class!), and a vigorous heat building, detoxifying sequence.

class is 80° to help generate a cleansing sweat.

“I developed Forrest Yoga as I was working through my own healing. I took poses and modified or created new ones to address today’s lifestyle physical ailments. For example, the ailments that our bodies are manifesting due to our lifestyles – lower and upper back pain, neck and shoulder issues, carpal tunnel syndrome, intestinal disorders.” -ana forrest

all levels - beginners welcome

forrest yoga does not require a specific level of strength or flexibility; it only requires a willingness to learn how to feel authentically and respond honestly. the practice is founded on four pillars -- breath, strength, integrity and spirit.

ashtanga yoga

class description
the term “ashtanga” comes from the yoga sutra of patanjali, where it refers to classical yoga’s eight (ashta) - limb (anga) practice. our ashtanga yoga class uses the guided primary series as the framework for a traditional vinyasa yoga class.

Ashtanga yoga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures—a process producing internal heat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.


some yoga experience and a base knowledge of yoga asana (postures) is recommended.

if you are •brand new• to yoga, we recommend trying a hatha style class first or signing up for our ongoing beginner series workshop (email us for information).

more ashtanga class times coming soon!

jivamukti yoga


class description

Jiva translates from Sanskrit as individual soul, and Mukti means liberation. Jivamukti yoga was founded by Sharon Gannon and David Life in 1984 in New York City. It was the harbinger of what we know as modern vinyasa flow yoga in the west, with reverence to the 5,000-year old spiritual tradition of Yoga. Jivamukti is an integrated practice that honors the physical, philosophical and spiritual branches of yoga. Each class emphasizes the importance of practicing with an elevated intention, breath awareness (breaths are counted), mantra, an uplifting soundtrack, and getting to the heart of yoga, Self-study (swadhyaya) through self-inquiry and devotion.

100% of the donations collected from Tuesday’s Jivamukti class will be used to support Global Movement Network. GMN is a network of yoga teachers, artists and healers who direct their work to support frontline environmental activists protecting our earth. Learn more about this organization and who they support here: www.globalmovementnetwork.org

restorative + yin

class description

both yin and restorative forms of yoga asana are slow paced. in these classes you to focus on maybe 10 different poses for the entire class. both forms of practice aim to calm the mind and nervous system as an end goal, requesting you to turn inward, and focus on your breath.​

in traditional Restorative yoga your body will supported by props to encourage complete relaxation and a down-shift in your nervous system.

Yin yoga differs in that it is restorative, but less passive. Yin yoga uses the long held yoga poses to work deep in to your body’s connective tissues, activating change in a profound but subtle way.

practicing these passive postures is a nice compliment to the more active (yang) poses found in a vinyasa class. challenge your mind to be at peace within physical stillness...


suitable for all levels

our weekly schedule lists multiple restorative classes. some are more restorative in nature, and some are more yin in nature depending on the teacher’s background.
