Gentle Morning Yoga
This gentle-paced class focuses on waking up the body slowly in the morning and coming back to mindfulness in your practice. Some weeks may include aspects of both yin and yang styles of yoga.
Yin Yoga is a wonderful compliment to the Yang styles of Yoga we often practice. Yang classes involve a lot of movement, breath work and muscular effort. In Yin, the poses are much more passive, often held on the floor and for longer periods of time. While Yang classes target the superficial tissues of the body, Yin classes target the deep connective tissues and the fascia that covers the body. A much more meditative practice, Yin students often leave with a sense of relaxation and clarity. Great for those wishing to balance out a busy lifestyle and those wishing to increase flexibility. Now offered in HOT as well!
Hot Balance & Core
Done in a heated room, this class will focus on a series of standing balance postures and then follow with core-strengthening postures.
This class is practiced in a room temperature of up to 40 Degrees. This allows the body to warm up quickly, deepen the practice and to maximize the detoxifying, cleansing nature of the postures. This invigorating flow is not a set sequence; it embodies a diverse range of yoga styles, allowing the instructors the freedom to play with alignment and movement and provides a full workout for the entire body.
A dynamic, heat-building class with full emphasis on gaining core strength and stability. Expect longer holds in challenging postures with vinyasa yoga in between!
A slower-paced class with an emphasis on mindfulness and being kind to the body. Students are encouraged to take extra time to move in and out of postures, while also exploring different modification options. Props are often used to adjust poses to meet individual needs and to allow greater release while holding a posture. This class will have a more meditative approach and will focus on breath, awareness and relaxation. Suitable for all levels.
Vinyasa meaning, “flow” or “to move without resistance”. Linking movement and breath, in this all levels class expect a strong emphasis on developing a steady breath to build heat and increase strength and flexibility with brief holds in postures.
