Basics is appropriate for the beginner who wants to build a strong foundation of basic Yoga postures and breathing techniques, as well as for the practitioner who wants to refine and master the fundamentals. We break down the basics of individual movements and teach basic yoga fundamentals to help you develop a solid yoga foundation. It is our intention to get you moving so that you can feel the effect of the yoga, but provide extra instruction at a slightly slower pace to help you build your yoga foundation.
Gentle Yin yoga classes are typically described as appropriate for those who want a softer, nurturing, slow-paced, well-supported and relaxing practice. The approach includes carefully orchestrated movements and well-measured stretches, including range of motion exercises. Ideal for students with chronic symptoms such as muscle/joint pain, stiffness, weakness, or fatigue. Yin poses are incorporated to stretch the muscles and open the connective tissue. Yin poses are seated poses held approximately 3 minutes. Please bring your own props if you have them, the studio does not provide them at this time.
Heated Flow is a more challenging and invigorating form of Yoga that heals, detoxifies and exhilarates the body and mind with emphasis on movement, balance and intention. The room heats to about 90-95 degrees but be prepared to build heat internally. This is a complete mind and body workout that develops concentration through meditation and reduces stress while toning your entire body. This is a great class for students who are ready to take the next step in their Yoga journey.
Restore & Meditate BYOB (BRING YOUR OWN BLANKET) to class. Restorative yoga deeply relaxes the body and stills the mind. The use of blankets will enhance flexibility which allows the body to heal and return to balance. We will spend time in restorative postures and then time in a guided meditation. This class is suitable for everyone.
Slow Flow is a flowing sequence of movements, in which the asanas (poses) and prana (energy/breath) are inter-connected. In a slow flow class, some of the poses are held for several breath cycles to refine the posture of the body, mind and heart.
Vinyasa Flow classes will tone, strengthen and purify your body. The dynamic mix of sweat and surrender will challenge you to your edge and encourage you to reach your true potential. The Power sequence is a series of postures that flow from one to the next, on breath. Modifications offered for less intense and more advanced pose options.
Vin Yin is the perfect combination of Yang and Yin. For the first half of class will begin with a warming Vinyasa sequence (Yang) of sun salutes and standing poses. For the 2nd half of class, we will move into a more quiet, still space. Staying on the floor, we will hold postures for 3-5 minutes, activating and working the connective tissue in our joints, and in doing so, increase flexibility and mobility in the spine, hips and shoulders.
