All Levels Power Vinyasa
Inspired by the popular Baron Baptiste, this challenging flowing practice synchronizes movement and breath in a warm, steamy heated room. Come hydrated, bring a towel, lots of water, and be prepared to sweat as you go with the flow, to your breath, and sometimes with the music. It not only changes your body but your mind as well! Classes are for all levels, all abilities, and all bodies.
Got somewhere to be? This is the class for you. Start your day early and right with an invigorating, inspiring Baptiste vinyasa class and make it to work on time! And don't leave early! Build your strength and flexibility and find your True North as you move through the flow on and off your mat. Hydration is a must and a towel is highly recommended.
Take your flow to new heights! Spend an hour in the air with one of our skilled Aerial Yoga instructors as you move through a sequence that will stretch, strengthen, and challenge your body in ways you could only imagine. First-timers are encouraged to come to see what all the hype is about! Advanced aerial yogis are welcome to come to get their sweat on! We tailor these classes to fit your needs and work your body. Kids love it and adults rave about it. Bring your water, a FAT smile, and get ready to play!
Great for beginners! Or sometimes you might just want to take it easy! Typically not as hot as the All Level or Power Hour class. Our teachers lead a modified sequence in one hour designed to move you gently through the flow. Come to this class and feel the tension melt from your body. Arrive hydrated with your water and a hand towel and expect to leave feeling calm and loose.

I couldn't tell you how I felt about my first yoga experience. What I do recall is sitting in the corner of my mom's class playing with toy horses for the entire hour. I grew up resistant to the idea of yoga, and although I practiced growing up, I didn't catch the "yoga bug" until I left for college.
I moved to VT in 2008 and for reasons, I can't recall I walked into a yoga class and my life has never been the same! Simply put, it was a life-changing experience and one I'm forever grateful for! I have enormous gratitude to Polly Schmid for training me to teach, and for the wonderful studio, she's created here in Jamaica, VT.
Born in Jamaica, VT I’ve known the magic of this town for quite some time. It wasn’t until I moved back here in 2021 that I began to appreciate the art of slowing down, truly. My lifelong friend Casey Apps ( Change yoga instructor) encouraged me to show up for her classes, to heal my heart and body from a big ole knee injury on the slopes.
North Star- “A fixed destination that you can depend on in your life as the world changes around you”…
Yoga is my North Star.
I was 14 when my sister and I dropped into our first class in the back of the Jamaica Coffee House and it’s been a part of my life ever since. A place of comfort, knowing and belonging.
