Intro to Yoga: New to yoga or just seeking to rediscover a personal practice? Intro to Yoga is designed to bring anyone, no matter their experience level, to be able to comfortably participate in the true practice of Yoga. Starting with basics will ensure that you're building your yoga practice on a safe and sturdy foundation.
Meditation and Movement: A simple formula: 15 minutes of meditation to start, 45 minutes of movement, 15 minutes of meditation/savasana to end. Just as a heads up, sometimes we will attempt a challenging movement here and there; I don’t say that to scare you, just so you’re well informed. Other than that, its business as usual.
Open Vinyasa Flow: Open Vinyasa Flow is a beginner friendly class made to energize, restore, and refresh our mind and body. Each class will offer an opportunity to increase flexibility and strength, to reground, and to get a full body work-out. This class focuses on the mindful marriage of breath and movement, subtly reminding us to stay present and connected to our bodies as we practice. Come invigorate your creative spirit and get ready to stretch, ground, flow, and sweat.
Kundalini Yoga: Much more than a system of physical exercises, Kundalini Yoga is a dynamic, powerful tool for expanding awareness. The practice of Kundalini Yoga increases vitality, balances the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system and enables us to harness the energy of the mind and emotions so we can be in control of ourselves rather than being controlled by thoughts and feelings. This technology combines breath, mudra, eye focus, vibrational healing, body locks and postures in a precise, conscious manner to affect mind, body and soul. Whether you are new to this practice of Kundalini or have been practicing for years, this class will move you to feel strong, healthy, clear, more mentally and emotionally balanced, spiritually elevated and connected to your soul.
Yin Yoga: Come savor in this sweet, gentle practice that is yin yoga. Unlike muscular, “Yang” styles of yoga, the restorative-like postures of yin allow tension in the connective tissues (ligaments, tendons, fascia) to dissolve. Being a slower paced practice, poses are typically held for two to five minutes, providing the body an opportunity to deeply release. Benefits of a regular yin practice include improved flexibility, range of motion, and energy flow.
Yoga Basics: This slower-paced class is perfect for beginners, re-starters, or anyone who wants to build a strong foundation in their yoga practice. Classes will include breath work and meditation as well as yoga postures designed to build strength gradually, to promote flexibility, to improve balance, and to enhance overall well-being. The will be a strong emphasis on the mind-body connection and a combination of active and more restorative postures.
