Class Styles

The practice of yoga has been around for thousands of years—and through the ages, it has branched out into a myriad of unique techniques and styles.

Here at Kindness Yoga, we seek to provide you with a diverse class roster that will support you through a lifetime of practice – from your first Downward Facing Dog to plumbing the depths of the soul in seated meditation, sweating and flowing like a pro, or even gracefully soaring into handstands. We feel blessed to be living in a time of rich evolutionary growth for this ancient practice. We are dedicated to providing the Denver community with a rich diversity of experience that honors yoga’s sacred past and looks to our community’s bright future—while helping us fully embody the present. To learn more about the kinds of yoga we practice, click on any of the names below.

Kindness Yoga Symbol Align and Flow

Align and Flow is a potent alignment-oriented practice that emphasizes the forms and actions within yoga postures. Classes progressively and safely sequence towards more complex poses, and spend time breaking down techniques for honing awareness and skill on and off the mat. This practice emphasizes cultivating adhikara (devoted studentship) and draws upon a wide range of postures that build strength, flexibility, and highly-refined awareness in body and mind.

Kindness Yoga Symbol Barre

Kindness Barre is a unique, safe, fun and empowering workout for the entire body. You'll use a barre as a prop to balance while doing exercises that combine isometric strength training, body weight exercises, and high reps of small movements. Instructors use yoga transitions to create a flow between floor work, barre work, and deep stretching. All Barre classes start with breath work and end with savasana to integrate the mind-body connection.

Kindness Yoga Symbol Forrest Yoga

Forrest Yoga is renowned as an intensely physical and internally-focused practice that emphasizes carrying 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. Expect challenging flow sequencing, unique posture variations, and a strong emphasis on breath awareness.

Kindness Yoga Symbol Foundations Yoga

Foundations Yoga classes are perfect for both the true beginner and the experienced student who wants a simple, impactful, accessible practice. Expect to build strength, meditative focus, confidence, and knowledge of yoga in a safe, supportive, well-paced environment. Learn and practice the fundamentals with instructors skilled at guiding poses and sharing modifications that work for all sorts of bodies.

Each Foundations Yoga class is uniquely designed by the instructor. They all feature detailed instruction of a breathing technique, a movement strategy, and several shapes from our syllabus of fundamental yoga postures. By returning to Foundations again and again, you can expect to develop a well-rounded and refreshing practice grounded in the most essential elements of yoga—mindful movement, classic poses, and conscious exploration of body and breath.

Kindness Yoga Symbol Kindness Hot Yoga

Our popular signature series, Kindness Hot Yoga (affectionately known to many practitioners as Kinda Hot) is a comprehensive set of yoga postures specifically designed to strengthen, heal, and transform. As its name suggests, Kindness Hot Yoga is practiced in a moderately heated, humidified room and leads students through a detoxifying mixture of strengthening, lengthening and balancing poses that is both challenging and relaxing. This practice is truly all-levels; it’s beneficial for beginners and advanced practitioners alike. Bring a towel and a water bottle!

Kindness Yoga Symbol Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga is a floor-based practice of sthira (steadiness) and sukha (ease). Use blocks, bolsters, and blankets to sustain postures that facilitate relaxation and release. This form of yoga aims to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which supports immune function, stress relief, and balanced regulation of all bodily functions. Restorative practice is preventative and healing, as well as an ideal complement to more fiery yoga practices. It is also perfect for those experiencing anxiety, depression, insomnia, fatigue, and digestive issues. Wear comfortable clothes and dress warmly!

Kindness Yoga Symbol Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa is a flowing, dynamic yoga practice that cultivates presence by connecting movement with breath. Most classes feature several elements of traditional Ashtanga yoga—including sun salutations, standing poses, preparation for arm balances, dynamic stretching, and pranayama (breathwork). Our diverse family of teachers creatively sequence these elements to reflect their unique personalities while building heat, exploring energy and intention, and fostering greater self-awareness. This practice will build your inner and outer strength, improve your balance, and reduce stress while increasing vitality and athleticism.

Kindness Yoga Symbol Yin Yoga

A cooling, patient, and deeply intense practice, Yin is a perfect complement to dynamic and muscular styles popular in America today. Yin stimulates and targets connective tissues by working gently into the edge of postures through long holds (between one and ten minutes). By emphasizing actions of ligaments, bones, and joints rather than muscles, these classes encourage an entirely different sort of openness from more active and movement-oriented practices. Suitable for all levels, Yin promotes a sense of slow, deep unwinding and release.

Kindness Yoga Symbol Yoga Nidra

Using a series of guided visualizations and deep relaxation techniques, this “inner body yoga” is designed to help practitioners move beyond the conditioned mind into a state of expanded self-awareness. By entering into an ultimate rest state and gaining access to the deeper realms of the mind, students can more effectively release tension, anxiety, unwanted habits and self-limiting beliefs—awakening to their greatest potential. Each class begins with several minutes of gentle, meditative movement, with the balance of the practice experienced lying in Savasana.
