Yoga Basics

For beginner students and for those who prefer practice at a moderate pace. Class combines movement, meditation, and breathing to stimulate strength, flexibility, relaxation and self awareness. Instruction, physical assists and demonstrations are provided.

Empowering HIIT 

HIIT stands for high intensity interval training which means we enjoy various circuits that will elevate our heart rate and then move into circuits at a slower recovery pace .

This class is focused on empowering you in your body to meet yourself where you are. It is for all levels as plenty of modifications will be offered.

We will begin class by warming up and checking in with our body, flowing through the circuit of the day and ending with a cool down and much deserved Savasana with a cooling towel.

Deep Stretch Yoga

Practitioners will develop greater flexibility in areas that are commonly tight  from day to day activities such as the hamstrings, calves, hips, and back. Developing greater flexibility will improve performance as well as reduce the risk of injury. Both Yang (movement and strength building) and Yin (deep stretch) postures will be practiced with greater emphasis on lengthening the muscles and connective tissue. Various breathing techniques will be practiced, not only to improve and strengthen lung capacity, but also to maintain calmness and focus during activities.  Not recommended for new students.

Bring a yoga mat and water bottle. Yoga mats can be rented for $1.

 

Restorative Yoga with Sound Healing and Meditation

Restorative yoga is a restful practice that is all about slowing down through passive stretching. There is hardly any movement as we will only move through a few postures each class.

When the body enters a state of relaxation the mind can also consciously relax as tension is released from the body and mind.

This class will begin with a meditation followed by restorative postures. When we are in the restorative postures, sound healing will be given individually to each student using tuning forks. We will end in a meditation as well.

You will leave this class feeling very connected to self.

Yoga for Backs

This is a very gentle class designed to stretch and  strengthen areas that affect the back.

Practitioners will increase overall flexibility in all areas of the back, shoulders and arms, as well as in the hips and legs. Various breathing techniques are taught to promote relaxation and better lung function. Aroma therapy, massage and restorative postures are offered.   No prior yoga experience is necessary.

Yin and Meditation

Yin Yoga is a slow paced style where we hold asanas (postures) for longer periods of time in a quiet, meditative state.
Yin is known as the feminine style of yoga. It is passive- non forcing and striving.

When we allow gravity to take over and find this sense of surrender in the various postures we get deeper into the connective tissues creating flexibility and strength.

Yin is a very quiet and meditative class that will leave you feeling balanced and grounded.

Benefits of yin:
Calms and balances the mind and body.
Reduces stress and anxiety.
Increases circulation.
Improves flexibility.
Releases fascia and improves joint mobility.
Balances the internal organs and improves the flow of chi or prana
