Classes at Mighty Yoga range from 60 to 90 minutes in length. All of our classes are conducted in a room heated between 80 and 90 degrees with approximately 60% humidity, unless otherwise designated, The heat helps to detoxify the body and boost your immune system, while reducing muscle and joint tension. Class styles will vary from instructor to instructor and we encourage you to attend classes with everyone to take advantage of this variety.

FLOW & FLY
AcroYoga Flow & Fly classes blend the three ancient lineages of Yoga, Thai massage, and acrobatics to form the foundation of a unique partner practice. Grounded in breath and “metta” (loving kindness), participants explore partner flows and sequences, experience a deepening trust in themselves and others, and realize that by working in partnership, we manifest far more than we ever could alone. As we explore more dynamic sequences, students will practice inversions and partner acrobatics with the support of a spotter, and learn techniques to develop strength, flexibility, and body awareness. All levels of yogis are invited to come and find their Yoga practice challenged and expanded. No partner required. Joyful, playful, and a great workout! Please note that this class is currently only offered periodically in Ithaca.
If our Mighty Flow classes could be defined as traditional (which we know is not technically true), these classes would be RADICAL!

Whether it’s a deeper exploration of a pose, alignment, anatomy, breath, meditation and philosophy or other creative offerings, these special classes will not only expand your practice, but spice it up, too. Mix topics will be outlined on our website and online schedule as these classes are scheduled. Please note that this class is currently only offered periodically in Ithaca.
