  • Yogaworks 2-3
  • Practice with attention and intention. Our signature YogaWorks classes blend precision in alignment with breath awareness and fluid movement for a balanced practice. These classes typically move through a warm-up and Sun Salutations into strategically sequenced postures, working toward a particular peak post. Come prepared to learn how to move your body skillfully and safely on the mat. You'll leave these classes feeling like you got a satisfying workout for both your body and your mind.

  • Vinyasa Yoga 2
  • Perhaps the most popular style practiced in the West, these classes keep you moving! You’ll flow continuously through strong sequences of traditional Sun Salutations and standing postures, linking breath with movement and work to build strength and endurance as you push the edge of your balance and flexibility. In Sanskrit vinyasa means “to place in a special way,” and that informs the graceful dance that is a well-planned vinyasa sequence. When you hit that sweet spot and the endorphins kick in, a pushup suddenly becomes an exercise in weightlessness—you glide, you float, you sail into a blissful final relaxation. Now you get the hype, right?

    Level 2, or 2 Diamond, classes are suitable for intermediate students. The basic postures are expanded to include more difficult variations and may be described with less detail. The class will flow at a faster pace and the asanas will be held longer. The classes introduce more advanced breathing techniques and concepts in yogic philosophy including the energetic body.


  • YogaWorks 2
  • Practice with attention and intention. Our signature YogaWorks classes blend precision in alignment with breath awareness and fluid movement for a balanced practice.

  • YogaWorks 1-2
  • Practice with attention and intention. Our signature Yogaworks classes blend precision in alignment with breath awareness and fluid movement for a balanced practice.

Come prepared to learn how to move your body skillfully and safely on the mat. You'll leave these classes feeling like you got a satisfying workout for both your body and your mind.

  • 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training - Winter 2017
  • The Charm City Yoga 200 Hour Teacher Training presented by YogaWorks is for all serious students of yoga who want to deepen their practice and learn how to share it with others.

This unique expression of your yoga will join your individual light with the collective light of the sages who have come before you in the name of union.
