Emphasis is placed upon safety and awareness within each pose. Meditation and pranayama (an extension of the breath) are incorporated within the class to enhance the physical postures. You will develop strength, flexibility, and body awareness in a nurturing environment. A typical class includes standing and balancing poses, twists, and backbends. New students will receive plenty of instruction and more experienced students will be offered options to challenge themselves.
- Vinyasa. Get connected to your body and soul through breath guided movement, in this fun, energetic flow class. Bring your energy…leave your inhibitions. Closing meditation to bring you back down and relax. Vinyasa Flow is a connection between movement and breath with a series of poses that will take you through the power of inhaling and exhaling as your body moves through the sequence. Learn the basics of yoga: breathing, meditation, proper positioning, and the use of props. Expect a mix of holding stretches and flowing sequences. This class is suitable for all levels.
- Ashtanga Yoga is a type of vinyasa yoga with a specific sequence that your practice every time. It includes many of the postures you see in a vinyasa class. You begin with Sun Salutations A/B then move into the primary sequence of poses that you hold each for 5 breaths. In between each seated posture you do a vinyasa (chatturanga, up dog, down dog) into the next seated posture. The breath that is practiced in Ashtanga yoga is the Ujjai (ocean) breath. Once you have practiced the primary series of postures you would advance to the secondary series.
- Restorative & Yin Yoga poses have a particular ability to leave us nourished and well rested. These postures are usually deeply supported by blankets, blocks, or other props and are held for several minutes at a time. A gentle way to allow the body to open and relax. The dessert table of yoga practice! Also makes a great Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Class.
