Gentle Restorative Yoga
This soothing practice is designed to restore the nervous system and help release deeply held tensions from the body and mind. Props may be used to support the postures while gently stretching and strengthening the body. Living in a fast-paced world, it can be a relief to slow down, breathe deeply, and fully inhabit the body through mindful movement. With a focus on proper alignment and the use of modifications, this style of practice can accommodate all levels of experience. This class is beginner friendly and open to all levels.
Gentle Flow Yoga
This practice is designed to release tension, connect with the breath, and help students gain strength and flexibility. Classical hatha yoga postures will be used along with the use of props and modifications to accommodate individual needs. A mind-body connection will be emphasized to leave practitioners feeling relaxed, refreshed, and at ease. This class is beginner friendly and appropriate for students of all levels.
Gentle Flow + Yoga Nidra
This class will lead practitioners through approximately 50 minutes of gentle flow that emphasizes a mind and body connection and the release of tension. The remainder of the class will be a guided meditation that emphasizes full body relaxation. This class is open to all levels and beginner friendly.
Tai Chi/Qigong Gentle Flow
Tai Chi/Qigong Gentle Flow consists of gentle stretches and graceful movements developed from the ancient Chinese methods of Tai Chi and Qigong. Movements are slow, circular, and performed from a stationary posture. This practice is low impact but still highly aerobic and accessible to everyone. No prior experience is necessary.
Yin Yang Yoga blends two styles of yoga into one practice – bringing together the benefits of passively holding yoga poses with more dynamic sequences and standing postures. Beginning with the meditative practice of Yin, deep connective tissue is targeted with long, relaxing holds. The class then moves into a gentle Yang practice that strengthens muscles. These two elements together offer the perfect complement of practice to balance the body and mind. Open to all levels of practice.
Hot Yoga is a vigorous practice suited for all levels of students, from beginners to advanced yoga practitioners. The series has 30 postures and is practiced in a heated room set to 105 degrees with 40% humidity. The heated room creates an environment that helps warm muscles, soothe tendons and joints, and flush toxins from the body through heavy sweating. This practice improves balance, strength, and flexibility.
If you want the physical benefits of an active yoga practice AND the mental and emotional benefits of meditation, this is the class for you.
Class will begin with a slow-moving yoga sequence designed to develop an awareness breath. Variations of poses will be given throughout, making the class accessible for all levels. The yoga sequence will last for 40-45 minutes, allowing time for a brief savasana followed by a guided meditation.
Meditation is known to boost the immune system, improve concentration, relieve stress, improve sleep, and mitigate age-related cognitive decline. Just like anything else, it requires practice! Your mind is the “…filter that experiences everything.” Nurture it.
Slow Flow is a slower, more reflective vinyasa flow that leads practitioners through longer holds of the poses. Set to soothing music, longer holds and slower transitions allow for greater refinement of alignment and a deeper inner exploration of each pose. Slow Flow is wonderfully suited to those new to the vinyasa style of yoga. Modifications are always offered to accommodate all personal practices. The slower pace can also benefit seasoned vinyasa practitioners by offering strength building and opportunity explore technique in more detail and allow for a deeper experience of vinyasa.
Vinyasa is a dynamic, “flowing” style of yoga that connects movement with breath. Often called vinyasa flow, it is an energetic yet graceful practice that leads students through a sequence of poses that strengthens and lengthens the body. Vinyasa emphasizes fluid, conscious movement as students move with the breath from one posture to the next for a dynamic and transformative practice. The room will be moderately warm, but not hot. Prior experience is recommended but not required.
Warm Vinyasa Flow
A dynamic “flow style” class in a warm room of 80-85 degrees. Poses are linked through breath for an athletic and transformative practice. Students will be lead through standing poses, backbends, twists, and forward folds with introduction to inversions, arm balances, and deep relaxation. Modifications will be offered to accommodate individual practices. Prior experience is recommended but not required.
Power Flow is an athletic, dynamic practice that will challenge students both physically and mentally. Practitioners will be invited to practice at a brisk pace and try strength challenges, as well as potential arm balances and inversions. Modifications are always welcome, but previous experience is recommended.
