YinYasa: A powerful pairing of two different disciplines of asana (yoga postures); Yinyasa has fused the Yin style of long-held passive poses with the dynamic, yang style of Vinyasa (flow). Traditionally a Yin practice is best if done on a "cold" body and passively stretches your connective tissue to promote health of your joints and internal organs. Thus, this class will begin with Yin to open the body to more flexibility and energy flow while encouraging a more contemplative, non-reactive quality of mind. After a few long held poses the class will move into a flow to strengthen and invigorate the body and mind. Overall this class is 60 minutes of self care! Room is heated between 75-80 degrees.
Get up and Flo: An invigorating All Levels Vinyasa Flow that will warm up the muscles and wake up the body. This class will have you feeling energized and ready to conquer the day ahead.
Vinyasa Flo: An all levels flow sequenced at a moderate pace. Flowing meditation through movement, balancing poses, some arm balances, and pranyama (breathing exercises). Modifications for students provided and variations for more advanced students also cued. Room heated to 85 degrees.
Yin: Suitable for all levels, this meditative approach to the practice consists of longer held, passive poses, that target deep into the connective tissues and fascia of the body. Relaxing into these postures helps to increase and maintain flexibility withing the body. This class is a great compliment to a flow class.
Restorative: A slow moving, gentle, challenging, quiet practice that incorporates Yin and Taoist techniques with Hatha Yoga postures. While most poses are seated, it is the perfect space to delve deep into meditation, relaxation, and cultivate the non reactive mind. The ability to sit still and relax allows the body and mind to open. Not only do the muscles, joints, ligaments, and tendons stretch and open. but also and especially the fascia (deep connective tissue). Non Heated.
