~ Yoga Class Descriptions ~
Alignment Yoga ~
Students both new to yoga or advanced yogis learn proper alignment in this Iyengar-inspired class. Class will cover the fundamentals of asanas (postures) allowing students to experience the benefits of yoga at a relaxed pace. This class is appropriate for all levels at any age.
Gentle Yoga ~
Gentle Hatha Yoga class appropriate for all levels and ages.
Intro to Vinyasa ~
Recommended for first-time students to begin their journey into yoga. This class teaches the basic poses (asanas) that will be practiced in Vinyasa yoga class as well as breathing practices (pranayama) and meditation techniques. Students will learn a basic sun salutation and, after a few classes, will be prepared to join other Vinyasa classes or are welcome to continue with the Intro classes if the structure and pace are most appropriate.
Vinyasa Yoga ~
Students flow through spirited posture sequences with fewer breaks and at a more vigorous pace. A large portion of this class is sun salutations, and back bending, forward bending and inversions will also be practiced. The linking of breathe with movement increases the strength and flexibility of the body and calms the nervous system. There is always deep relaxation, pranayama (breathwork), and a brief meditation to end the class. Some yoga experience is recommended prior to attending vinyasa classes.
Yin Yoga ~
Explore a Luxurious Opening of the Body and its Energetic Pathways. The Yin Practice is Quiet and Deeply Energetic.
This 75-minute class:
• Will be mostly done on the floor
• Focuses on the joints of the back, hips and legs
• Brings health to the body’s deeper and less-elastic tissues (joints, tendons, and fascia)
• Explores holding the poses for a long time…anywhere from 2-10 minutes
• Taps into the “stuff” active yang practices can’t reach
• Incorporates meditation as part of the practice
• Offers a much-needed break from our fast-paced yang lifestyles
This class is appropriate for all levels at any age.
