Gentle yoga is a slow-paced, relaxing form of yoga. It provides a beautiful way to softly wake the body up and stretch yourself out. Gentle yoga because of its innate gentle nature, is perfect for those who cannot meet the demands of a physically straining exercise due to age, recovery from injuries or surgery. This practice combines physical postures (asanas) with guidance of an experienced teacher, breathing techniques (pranayama) and deep relaxation to help soften muscles and calm the mind. Studies have proven beneficial for many health concerns, including pain, reducing the heart rate and blood pressure, as well as relieving anxiety and depression. This class is geared toward the student who wishes to move at a slower pace.
Traditional Energy Balancing Asana Sequence. Allowing you to connect with your true Self through a series of longer held postures, pranayama and relaxation.
Heated Vinyasa is a sequenced class which utilizes the heating quality of a specific pranayama techniques as well as vinyasa style movement. This class enables practitioners to let go of external focus connecting the mind to movement and the breath. Using the natural heating element of fire to help warm the external body, practitioners can dive deeper into their being to ignite their internal fire or “agni”. Our Fire Flow class will leave you feeling strong, energized, cleansed and centered.
Individual classes are available with certain instructors. Currently we offer these with Richard Jason Bruke, Spencer Jones, and Allison Higgins, . Please contact the individual instructor to learn more and schedule your session.
Yin and Restorative Yoga are slow paced and stress-relieving practices, they are very different. Yin poses are held about 2 - 5 minutes accessing deep layers of fascia allowing you to receive a deep stretch. Restorative encompasses long held, static stresses of the deep connective tissues allowing them to be remodeled and the pses typically are supported by a prop usually 5 minutes or more allowing deep relation. Pull these together and you a blissful experience. Restorative Yoga and Yin Yoga give us permission to rest, permission to slow down and pause from everyday "busy-ness". Shavasana is the foundation of both these styles and will create deep rest.
Vinyasa / All Levels
Vinyasa All Levels - Appropriate for beginners and those who have a regular Vinyasa practice. We will explore the foundations of Vinyasa yoga, focusing on breath and alignment while incorporating more complex movements and sequences. Modifications will be offered and encouraged.
