All of our classes are designed for ALL LEVELS - ALL BODIES
"Vinyasa" is a Sanskrit term meaning most literally "to place in a special way". In the context of a yoga class, it refers to the linking of poses with movement coordinated with the breath. Vinyasa sequences are often referred to simply as "flows", which is indicative of the steady and continuous shifting between poses. The classes are often seen in the context of 'phases', starting in a grounded and stable position, building to a peak requiring vigor and balance, and then releasing into a final state of rest. In a broader sense, Vinyasa yoga seeks to bring the practitioners focus to the rhythms and sequences that exist all around them in the natural world and their own mind.
A Vinyasa class designed to warm up your body, with the focus on linking breath with movement. You will learn basic poses and proper alignment with lots of individual attention. Expect reclining, seated, kneeling, and standing postures; breath work (pranayama), and meditative elements to renew and restore the mind-body connection.
Yin is the practice of letting go of what we’re holding onto physically, mentally and emotionally. Students are guided into meditation followed by long-held, grounded poses intended to slowly release the connective tissue while observing the natural breath. This practice challenges students to go deeper into the body, mind and spirit but is appropriate for all levels of fitness.
Restorative yoga is a practice focused on nervous system, specifically targeting the adrenal glands, which produce the stress hormone cortisol. By fully supporting our bodies with props, the mind can then take its focus to the nervous system, slowing down the production of cortisol. This practice is deeply meditative and healing for all.
