OUR CLASSES

Our yoga teachers offer a wide variety of styles for beginner to advanced practitioners as follows:

VINYASA LEVEL II

The main focus of this class is to connect a flowing sequence of physical movement with breath.      The basics of breath, postural alignment and some philosophy are included, as well as sequencing that will help develop flexibility, core stability and strength, while maintaining a playful mindset. This class is appropriate for all levels.

VINYASA LEVEL III

This Vinyasa class is appropriate for students who are looking for a more powerful and advanced practice.

VINYASA LEVEL I

Vinyasa Level I classes are designed for students who are beginning their practice or those who have limited range of motion or injuries. This class moves at a slower pace, is less strenuous, and provides lots of instruction, modifications and guidance.

KUNDALINI YOGA

Kundalini is a well rounded yoga practice that includes postures, breath, meditation, and mantra. Kundalini is based on angles and triangles. Not only is it a great physical practice, the different angles we make with our bodies stimulate our glandular system and strengthen our nervous system. These new glandular secretions in the pineal and pituitary glands help to regulate our hormonal system and create an uplifted and balanced feeling that practitioners often describe as the ability to “shut off” and calm down. Many exercises also work to increase the circulation of the spinal fluid, affecting the cerebral spinal fluid, to refresh us, rejuvenate and increase mental clarity.

YIN, RESTORATIVE and GENTLE YOGA

Yin Yoga combines breath and stillness with slow and intentional movements to create balance and alignment in our mind, body and soul. Minimal movement is used and poses are typically held for 2-7 minutes. This allows for muscles, ligaments and tendons to truly surrender and let go. Yin is a beautiful practice for anyone looking to release blockages from their body and tap into their meditative state. Yin focuses on stretching your connective tissues in order to strengthen and lengthen them as well as to increase strength and flexibility, improve joint mobility, improve posture,and release trauma in the body. Poses also work with the energy meridians in your body. Restorative yoga is a practice of passive stretching, slowing down, and opening the body. During the long holds of restorative yoga your muscles are allowed to relax deeply. Muscles are stretched, tension is release, and space is created in the body and spine. It is a meditative practice that uses props, straps, sandbags, bolster, and blankets to fully support you. This encourage passive release of mind and body tension, without any active stretch. Gentle Yoga is a combination of deep stretch and a slower and gentle Vinyasa practice.

MINDFUL NATURE KIDS YOGA

When children learn tools for self-awareness, relaxation, and inner fulfillment, they can navigate life’s challenges with a little more ease. Yoga at an early age encourages self-esteem and body awareness with a physical activity that’s noncompetitive. Fostering cooperation and compassion are the greatest gifts to give our children. This class is appropriate for children ages 3+. Children participate in physical yoga practice, mindfulness, and yoga philosophy through play and nature.

YOGA NIDRA

Yoga Nidra is meditation and conscious relaxation practice that is intended to induce total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. In this meditation you are lying down and being guided into deep relaxation. This powerful practice taps you into the subconscious mind, releaves stress, rejuvenates and improves health and emotional health.
