Yoga

Our yoga teachers offer a wide variety of styles for beginner to advanced practitioners. Yoga is the union of mind, body and spirit and will help bring more balance and joy into your life by helping to balance your physical and emotional bodies while quieting your mind.

OUR YOGA STYLES INCLUDE:

VINYASA
The main focus of this class is to connect physical movement with breath. The basics of breath, postural alignment and some philosophy will be included, as well as sequencing that will help develop flexibility, core stability and strength, while maintaining a playful mindset.

BEGINNER’S YOGA
Whether it’s your first time, your fifth time or your hundredth time, this class is a beautiful way to experience yoga from the ground up! For those new to a yoga asana (physical) practice, you will learn the ins and outs of flowing breath to movement, allowing the body, mind and soul to communicate fluidly. For seasoned practitioners, you will re-familiarize yourself with the foundations to make your practice stronger and more effortless.

KUNDALINI YOGA
Kundalini yoga is the yoga of awareness. In this class we will be synchronizing the breath with movement and using mantra to tune the mind. There will be crystal bowl sound healing during relaxation. Each class will end with a meditation technique to align our mind and breath to our highest potential, and bring that potential into our daily lives.

ASHTANGA FUSION
A 60 minute flow class, appropriate for all levels and for those that are seeking a meditative, energizing and grounding practice. Choreography of movement and stillness with breath, dristhi (gaze), bandhas or “core locks” that provide both levity and grounding, as well as alignment principles and isometrics are explored here, through careful and creative sequencing. Restoration, yogic philosophy, and pranayama will often begin or close practice. A blended hour of traditional vinyasa interwoven with fun, feel good, and organic flow. Leave class feeling fully in yourself and with space and ease.

SLOW POWER FLOW
Don’t let the name fool you….this is a powerful vinyasa flow class, focusing on moving slowly, with intention, into and out of poses. Moving in this way will allow what is weaker to become stronger, including providing a “break” for overworked areas, while creating greater stability in joints and an enhanced feeling of connection to and control of the body. All levels of practitioner are encouraged!

ROLL ‘N FLOW VINYASA
This all levels class will include 10 minutes of tennis ball rolling to warm up & loosen up then 65 minutes of vinyasa flow set to fun, funky, uplifting jamz!

YOGA FOR 12 STEP RECOVERY (Y12SR)
Y12SR combines the practical tools of the 12-step program with the ancient wisdom of yoga. Combining the two, creates a model that truly addresses addiction as the physical, mental & spiritual dis-ease that it is. Y12SR is a 12-step-based discussion and yoga practice open to anyone and everyone dealing with their own addictive behavior or affected by the addictive behavior of others. This is an open and inclusive group. All are welcome.

CHILDREN’S YOGA
This class offering is supportive of the family environment in that the heart and spiritual nature of both the parents and the children will be met and served in these grounding yet playful classes that run side by side one another. Earth Skills Kids Yoga, nourishes the child’s natural inclination to move, play, and explore the natural world around them. Children are our future and we hold the vision of healthy people and a healthy planet for the next seven generations to come. Children will be invited to play and learn in the philosophy of interconnectedness with all of life around them. If our Earth is healthy then the plants, animals, water and people, too, are healthy. In previous times, people lived more in alignment with the rhythms of nature. In our current culture, most children are exposed to a lot of energy and toxins and that disconnect them from the vibration of nature all around them. We have developed a curriculum, where children have the opportunity to tap into nature through intention, elements and seasons. The class will start by honoring the directions and elements, followed by a playful yoga flow reinforcing lessons from nature where children will embody different animals and flows with songs to remind them of the interconnectedness of all beings. Towards the end of class, children will be given the opportunity to re-wild in our magical garden and plant their intention and explore in our children’s garden.

GENTLE ORGANIC YOGA
Experience in this class the free flow of the energy in your body as you are guided to move through yoga poses with the intention of allowing you to explore at your own pace. This class is taught in a gentle yet deep manner, without rigidity nor intensity, but with empowerment and playfulness. In a non-intimidating and safe environment, accessible to all, no matter what style or level of your practice, your shape or size. There is room for everyone. Using your breath, intuition and awareness, sometimes movement, sometimes stillness to create a more positive relationship with yourself on and off the mat.
