Class Descriptions

Yoga Classes

Beginner’s Basics

This class is great for new yogis and experienced practitioners alike. We will build a strong foundation for your yoga practice. Common asanas will be visited, and you will become familiar with Sanskrit terminology. Beginner does not mean easy! Expect this class to be a healthy challenge.

Yin Yoga

Yin is the passive practice of yoga. We will start all postures on the left side of the body, the yin side. This class is very slow, and all postures are seated. Expect to be in postures for as long as 3-5 minutes. Leave feeling rejuvenated!

Prenatal Yoga

This gentle practice was created specifically for expecting mothers. Large pillow props are used to make class more accessible. Class temperatures will be cooler than our traditional yoga classes.

Hot Power Fusion

Hot Power Fusion is a blend of balance, flexibility, and core strengthening. The class offers the detoxifying qualities of hot yoga with the intensities of power yoga. Class is for all levels and beginner friendly.

Rush Hour Vinyasa

Not everyone has a traditional 8-5 work week. If your day starts a little later, and you are looking for a morning practice, you are in luck! Rush Hour Vinyasa is a 60 minute fast paced vinyasa. The class will be warm, but not hot. Come prepared to sweat, but leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated! Class structure will be similar week to week, with a slightly different focus every class.

Spicy Ashtanga Vinyasa

End your work day with a fun and dynamic vinyasa flow class based on synchronizing movements with breath! An invigorating flow consisting of sun salutations, standing postures, basic arms balances and inversions, and a sweet, restorative cool down. Each class is accompanied by lively music; no two classes are the same! A basic knowledge of yoga is recommended for a more enjoyable experience, but postures are explained and modifications are offered, so all levels are welcome!

Creative Vinyasa

In this class, you will learn the power of breathing exercises, the importance of mindfulness, tools for self stress relief, and how to use yoga as an everyday philosophy. A foundation in yoga is recommended, but not required. Expect a pinch of Tae-kwon-do movement.

Karate Classes

Youth Karate

Youth Program (ages 6-12)

Your child will grow inside and outside.  They will be less vulnerable to bullies or predators as they learn Self Pride, Confidence, Respect and Humility.  They will become proud but not prideful.

Focus is on basics, forms/katas, discipline, self esteem, sparring and physical fitness.  We have developed a special program to provide your child with rewarding benefits. Our program will help your child develop coordination and balance, overcoming awkwardness or imbalance during the growth years, while building confidence in many areas. Respect, self-discipline and courtesy are emphasized throughout the program. We help kids learn to focus.

Our karate program will help your child develop the ability to stand up to peer pressure and other intimidating situations. Montgomery Isshin-ryū Karate Academy is very careful to teach our students common sense before self-defense, never to be abusive or offensive, and that there is no first strike in karate. The result is a self-confident child who does not need to compromise his/her correct choices, to be a bully, or show off to others.

Our kids program is structured, yet fun! We emphasize good, clean karate techniques, while incorporating, good clean fun for kids.  It’s also a great way for them to burn off energy. We firmly believe in the values of our karate program and its life-long benefits.

Your Isshin-ryū training will include the most up to date methods known for achieving total fitness and self-defense capabilities within a well organized, progressive, non-competitive format. You can start as a beginner or experienced martial artist.  

Isshin-ryū is one of the styles chosen by the US Marines in their current martial arts program!  The program dates back to the 1950’s where the US government paid the founder of Isshin-ryū to train US Marines.

The best time to begin making confidence, fitness and self-defense part of your life is now! Karate provides a healthy break from routines of home, school or office. Karate is the most interesting and diversified way to keep fit, both physically and mentally.
