Vinyasa Flow

Ashtanga_130224108_sr

Vinyasa Flow utilizes breath-synchronized movement, flowing smoothly into and out of poses. This invigorating and energizing practice stems from the 8-limb path and incorporates Ashtanga sequencing and asana. Increase strength, improve flexibility, refine balance and deepen concentration and meditative mind. Ultimately, tap into intrinsic peace and compassion. Yoga trains the mind to focus on the present, becoming more aware and mindful in all our actions leading to kindness towards self and others. This class will enhance this journey and is ideal for students familiar with Sun Salutations, no prior Ashtanga experience needed. (Level 3+)

VinYin

YogaMoves_gmy-465_srA vigorous vinyasa flow with lively music for the first portion of the class followed by a cooling, calming series of yin postures leading into savasana to help create balance and overall wellbeing.

Yin Yoga

Yin_130227161_srThis quiet practice focuses on the deep connective tissue in the lower back, hips and pelvis. Poses are generally limited to seated or reclined. The poses apply passive pressure (muscularly soft) to the joints, ligaments and tendons and are held for 3 to 5 minutes. While holding the pose for a period of time, students practice staying mentally attentive by focusing on the breath and to what their body feels in the pose.

Restorative Yoga

An introspective and quiet class focusing on releasing tension in the body and mind. Most of the class will be on the floor. Restorative yoga is a perfect balance to vigorous physical activity and everyday stress. Beginning with poses to lengthen and ease discomfort in the hamstrings, hips, back, shoulders and neck, at least 30 minutes will be spent in “restorative poses”, supported by props and held for up to five minutes. Restorative poses center around gentle back bends to open through the chest, gentle forward bends to quiet the mind, and other poses to ease physical and mental stress. Focus will be on the breath and moving toward a peaceful meditative state. Class will close with relaxation and seated meditation. Appropriate for all levels of students who are comfortable reclined, prone or side lying on the floor and also enjoy a very quiet class.
