Yoga classes at HPIC are community-oriented classes. We offer a safe, non-judgmental environment and skilled instructors. These classes are great for those brand new to yoga as well as those with a yoga background.
What to wear/ bring: Everyone needs to bring a yoga mat. We do have some yoga mats, blocks, and straps as well. You will want to wear comfortable clothing you can easily move in. Yoga tops, sports bras and fitted tee shirts/tank tops are a good choice. We will practice barefoot. You should not eat for an hour before yoga. Everyone should bring an open mind and sense of humor.
Class Cost: $10.00

Thursdays @ 7PM (60 min) - Vinyasa Flow with Holly
Holly Briscoe has been practicing yoga for almost twenty years. She recently completed her 200 hour RYT at Spira Power Yoga here in West Seattle with an emphasis on Vinyasa flow. She started doing yoga to obtain a PE credit in college, but keeps returning to her mat to explore the mind/body/spirit connection. Holly enjoys both the strenuous physical practice of yoga, and the time to sit in quiet contemplation and incorporates both of these aspects into her classes. She encourages folks to listen to what their body needs – as we each arrive on our mat from a different space.
Saturdays @ 9AM (60 min) - Hatha Yoga with Robert (starting Sept 9th!)
Robert Powers lives in West Seattle and is a 2-time Washington state yoga champion in USA Yoga competitions. Robert has taught more than 1,300 yoga classes in Seattle in the past 3 years. In his class, students will experience great group energy plus personal attention. With effort and intention, you get maximum benefit and transformation. We prioritize fun, safety, and respect for the practice at all times.
Hatha ("sun and moon") yoga gives us the time and opportunity to practice stillness, heal the body, and quiet the mind. As a form of meditation, we think about the breath and lengthen the breath. We take the body through a full range of motion with traditional yoga postures (asanas) to our own abilities. We build strength, balance, flexibility, patience, focus and acceptance. A perfect way to begin your yoga journey, and also a lifetime of challenge for the dedicated yogi.
