Kirsten Malotky



Kirsten Malotky instructs the following:
  • Open Flow
  • This class caters to all levels, with clear instruction for those who are new to the Vinyasa practice, and more advanced offerings for students who want a challenge. Nothing is required, and staying in the realm of your own level is encouraged.
    {The Vinyasa style is born from the Ashtanga Yoga tradition, developed by the great Pattabhi Jois, whose teacher was the inimitable Krishnamacharya (“the father of modern yoga”). A typical Vinyasa class warms the body through sun salutations; flowing movements, using conscious breath as a metronome. As your teacher leads you through his or her own mapped-out, sequenced design, you have the opportunity to explore your presence in a variety of poses, some with longer holds than others. Some Vinyasa classes are themed toward a peak pose or class of poses, while some touch on all or a selection of the various classes of poses: standing poses, forward bending, backbending, twisting, hip and side openers, and inversions. Pranayama (breath work), meditation and bandha work (work with the 3 locks of the body) are also found tucked into many a Vinyasa class. Each class is a new experience.}

  • Restorative into Yoga Nidra
  • A nervous system RX with only good side effects. In this class we combine two dreamy, relaxing practices into an integrated 90min experience. Beginning with a series of restorative poses, wherein you are held by the props that support your deepest melt...followed by a led relaxation, designed to take your consciousness to rest in the sweet space between waking and sleeping. Therein lies your true, sweet self. Your bodymindspirit will thank you for this drop-in, unplug, conscious plunge into healing peace.

  • Hatha
  • This gentler style is a great foundation and a solid support for more active practices. Focus on alignment in poses, breath awareness, meditation, relaxation. Your guide will lead you through simple sequences, helping you to find ease in poses with the aid of your breath and a focused mind. This is a great class to take if you are a beginner yogi, and also good for more advancing practitioners who value more time to explore, refine and balance their practice. 

  • Open Level Vinyasa
  • This class caters to all levels, with clear instruction for those who are new to the Vinyasa practice, and more advanced offerings for students who want a challenge. Nothing is required, and staying in the realm of your own level is encouraged.

  • Yin
  • In this sweet, mellow style, we address the fascia (connective tissue) of the body, and the nature of mind. Yin Yoga taps the knowledge of the subtle energy body, the channels of energy flow and the deeper holding patterns of our tissues. This practice will challenge you in an all new way. No standing poses, all floor work, loooooong holds, and a deep, deep journey into the depth of your true, still, breathing self.

  • Vinyasa I ~ Super Slow Flow
  • This class won’t rock you til you drop. It will cradle you in it’s arms and serenade you while you flow slowly toward savasana (final relaxation). It’s like practicing moving through molasses. This practice cultivates a slower, mindful, nourishing flow, and gears toward those people who are new-ish to Vinyasa, or feel zapped but need to motor. Some poses are held, while the teacher cues alignment and breath awareness for more ease and inward journeying.

  • Yoga for Rookies
  • This class is designed for the beginner yogi, as well as the more advancing practitioner who wants to get back to the basics, or learn how to teach fundamentals. Your teacher will lead you through fundamentals of the practice of asana (poses), touch on pranayama (breath work) and give you little tastes of the practice of meditation. This class will ready you for more challenging classes by teaching you alignment and poses, easeful awareness of your breath, and contentment in sitting with stillness. The pace is slower and the structure of the class is more like a workshop, to allow for more specific teaching of poses and hands-on adjustments.
