Gentle Basics: A very simple and soothing Hatha Yoga class suitable for all ages and abilities.
We will explore the basic postures of Hatha (physical) Yoga with the aid of props, walls, and the floor. Excellent for pre-natal, post-natal, injury recovery and those who may find it difficult to do strenuous exercise, or who prefer to do a modest but effective level of yoga training.
Basic Yoga: This class is suitable for all levels of experience, from the beginner who is looking to gain fundamental knowledge of the postures to those who look to deepen their practice by revisiting the basics. This class is also for those who lack flexibility or have injuries. We will be focusing on the details of alignment and the development of muscular core strength at a slower pace.
Vinyasa Blend ~ Levels 1&2: This class is for students evolving in their Yoga practice with a more dynamic Vinyasa style (flowing from posture to posture with breath awareness) as well as a blend of other Yoga methods and Pranayama techniques. This is a more energized class in which advanced postures will be incorporated. Teachers will give modifications for different levels though some prior yoga experience is recommended.
Slow Flow Vinyasa ~ All Levels: This Vinyasa class honors the spirit of unwinding by taking it slow and steady. We move at a sweet and mindful pace, building a slow-burning heat that prepares the body for opening and lengthening. Toward the end of class, we hold a few restorative poses in order to experience relaxation, creating a transformative effect that will leave you feeling lighter, more joyous, and centered.
All Levels: We welcome all levels of experience and invite each individual to explore his or her strengths and limitations through modifications according to each student's abilities. Detailed alignment instruction is provided. Beginners welcome.
This class provides a safe alternative Yoga practice for those who are unable to practice on a mat. You will be guided through moving all major muscle groups and joints while sitting in a chair. Yogic breathing techniques and deep relaxation are essential parts of this class.
Cost: $10 but if it needs to be less ~ so be it.
Restorative Yoga: All yoga is restorative but this class transposes one from doing to being. Through the use of props, the body is completely supported in active relaxation. As you soothe your nervous system, the body cools down and the mind calms.
Breath awareness, mindfulness, sound vibration and deep relaxation round out this class to balance the body and mind.
Kundalini Yoga: Kundalini yoga classes use breath, movement, mantra, and meditation to heal the mind, body, and spirit. Each class consists of a kriya which is a series of postures taught in sequence to produce a desired effect. The teacher chooses from thousands of kriyas designed to help students deepen their awareness, connect with their creative energy, open the heart, stimulate the immune, glandular and nervous system, and balance the chakras. This class is open to all levels. Beginners welcome!
