Our yoga classes at our Fulton, MD yoga studio are a needed shift from the norm, with unique offerings and extra special touches to enhance each trip to the mat. Our classes are more about the experience than the level, focusing more on how you feel and what your body needs rather than how each pose looks.
All of our yoga teachers lovingly teach to each person in the room, holding space for everyone and offering customizations for all.

Release & Restore
(What we do best!)
RELEASE (a verb) to allow or enable to escape from confinement, set free
Where has this innovative class been all our lives?! This is the most delicious class you have never taken before because it is only offered here at SHIFT! This exclusive class combines myofascial release and yoga. It is like getting a massage. and taking a yoga class and going to physical therapy all at the same time. In our Deep Release class we explore gentle yoga postures with the intention of looking for where there is restriction in the myofascial webbing that beautifully holds everything together. Then we use assorted rollers and rounds to release the myofascial network and soothe the nervous system. This class is perfect for absolutely everyone and can be profound to help restore and heal the body, the mind and the spirit. You will leave feeling renewed!
Yin Yoga & Meditation
Our signature class! We are big advocates for yin yoga here at SHIFT. This divine practice is perfect for everyone and we believe is the key to helping us all discover more physical, mental and emotional freedom. Our bodies need to be released just as much as they need to be stimulated and yin is just the practice for release. We hold poses a bit longer, but in a really chill, passive way to free up the deeper tension embedded in our bodies. This helps create more hydration, range of motion and ease in our joints and tissues. Our yin classes end with 10 minutes of guided meditation and with extra special touches like Lavender aromatherapy and heated eye pillows, you will leave feeling profound!
If you are in the mood to Flow
FLOW (a verb) to move along steadily & continuously
Slow is the new strong! Our slow flow classes move gracefully through yoga postures at a deliciously sweet, slow pace. These classes are a beautiful way to experience your body moving in harmony with your breath. You will leave feeling fluid and light.

If you are in the mood to move more mindfully

Movement is medicine and our Mindful Movement Classes are just what you need to become deeply connected with your body. This practice is perfect for anyone looking for a little less flow and a little more stability. Our Mindful Movement classes will focus on aligning ourselves in postures without judgement, honoring the true beauty of our own unique body. Poses are held for a little longer to help us gain a deeper awareness of the present moment. You will leave feeling grounded, open and calm.
Gentle is the new advanced in our humble opinion. Our Gentle Strength classes are the perfect place to work on your practice at a richer, slower pace. Our gentle classes move in a tender way to build strength and suppleness. This class is for everyone. We love the way gentle yoga encourages us to move in a more intune way with our bodies each week. You will leave feeling nourished and vibrant.
This deliciously healing energy work is a form of gentle exercise performed upright in graceful fluid patterns to stretch the body, increasing fluid movement (blood, synovial and lymph) and build awareness of how the body moves through space. Qi Gong awakens the inner currents of energy within our bodies to keep us in a state of aligned inner peace.
