Quiet the Mind Body and Spirit with a 30 minute guided meditation. Disconnect from our busy lives and just focus on breath and body awareness.
This practice is designed to restore the nervous system and help release deeply held tensions from the body and mind. We use props such as bolsters, blocks and blankets to support the postures, while gently stretching and strengthening the entire body. This class is appropriate for students of all levels and physical abilities.
Historically based in Taoist practice. In yin yoga we target the connective tissues, such as ligaments and fascia, along with the energetic systems of the body. Bringing the body into balance and increasing its natural range of motion. Most poses are done while seated or lying down and are held in stillness for 3-5 minutes. This practice helps to regulate energy and balance the mind.
ideal for students of all levels who are particularly tight or recovering from injuries. Deep Stretch is a class that emphasizes the deep and juicy stretch of all major muscles and connective tissues through a series of slow movements and breath awareness. We seek ways to release tightness in your body, whether it’s in your hips and shoulders or hamstrings and quads. We end the class with relaxing, in a resting pose to prepare your body and mind for life!
Set to music our soulful vinyasa class builds heat, strength and flexibility while allowing the mind to flow into an exuberant state of meditation by traveling inward. Attention is given to alignment of the physical form as well as to the subtle energy body (chakras).
Here Are A Few FAQs We Get A Lot:
What is a good class for beginners?
All classes are catered to all levels with our skilled instructors available to assist with modifications or advancements during class. Depending on fitness level any class may be suitable, I recommend looking at our class descriptions to see which may fit you best.

Yourself and a water bottle! If you have a mat bring it otherwise we have loaner mats and mats available for purchase. Wear comfortable clothing that you can move freely in and is quick drying as the room is warm.

Yoga isn’t for the flexible it is for the willing! Each classes teaches you body awareness and stretching by dynamically moving our bodies through multiple postures. We also know that not everyone walks in able to touch their toes, so we teach on how to modified until you can!
How to have the best yoga experience at 11exhale yoga academy.
Yogi Universal Etiquette
Welcome to 11Exhale, during this time we will cover some basic but important universal etiquette policies. If this is your first time going to yoga class or fear that you will do something wrong in class. Walking into a yoga class for the first time can feel a little intimidating, that’s why i’m covering this with you today.
Some of these outlines will help you have a better mindful yoga practice, these are some ways to help you calm your pre-class worries. Let’s review together:
Try to arrive a good 10-15 minutes to the studio before class begins, this way you have time to get settled in, and adjust your yoga mat.
Practice on an empty stomach
Try not eat 1-2 hours prior to yoga practice. Juice or fruit are good if you need quick energy before class, drink plenty of water prior to class.
Turn off your phone
Some go to yoga class to block an hour of distraction, this is why we recommend to silence or turning off your phone during class. The most awkward moment in yoga is when your phone goes off and everyone has to wait for you to turn it off.
Remove your shoes
Please remove your shoes before entering your class, this is very important. Most studios require this to keep the floors clean, so you can have a better experience when you practice.
Try to use the restroom before/after class
Yoga instructors have a routine for every class and coming in-out during practice can disrupt the class. Staying on your yoga mat is one of the greatest compliments to your yoga instructor.
Notify the teacher of injuries or medical conditions
This helps our teacher know how to assist you and give you modifications.
Body odor – Perfumes
Be mindful of your neighbor when practicing yoga with heavy perfume, this can make sick (literally). Try to leave the commercial lotions and heavy perfumes for another occasion.
Take an extra minute to put away blocks or roll your yoga mat. Spray bottles are usually available to clean up your sweat from the floor.
Stepping on yoga-mats
Be mindful of stepping on others yoga mats when walking in class, this can disrupt their practice. Think of it as someone carelessly opening their car door and dinging your car.
