These classes start with an opening mediation to quiet the mind, you will connect with the body, spirit, and bring in a sense of peace. Then will move through a warm-up flow to release tension and increase range of motion. The class will continue with more challenging standing poses to strengthen your body, find balance, and increase focus, flexibility, and awareness. Restorative yoga props, such as blankets, blocks, bolsters, and straps, are often used to support the body, allowing muscles to lengthen and release.
The pace of the gentle class is slower with longer holds than the flow and focuses on stretching all areas of the body while releasing stress and tension from joints and muscles.
A regular yoga practice will help to dissolve barriers that may have you stuck in limiting patterns and open you to transform from the inside out.
The gentle class is designed for all levels. The flow class is for studios who have basic knowledge of the sun salutations. Take the class to the level that you are at in your practice.
This class anchors on the practice of the vinyasa, or flow, which will make this class more challenging, though we will still include basic yoga poses. Poses are generally held for shorter periods of time so that transitions between poses become part of the flow. This allows for more poses to be practiced during a class. Classes integrate balance, flexibility, and strength along with the breath. A specific focus of this class will be to connect to one’s self. Class content and the degree of the challenge will be determined by the instructor based on class needs. Beginners are welcome, but knowledge of the sun salutations is a must.
~Gentle, Beginning, Hatha Yoga~
In this busy society, we all need some time to relax and unwind so we can better serve ourselves and others. If your cup is not full you cannot fully help others. Join us for an opening guided meditation to connect with your breath with your body and mind. We will then move into a hatha based yoga class for all levels and will follow with yin yoga practice, holding postures for several minutes to move deeper into your body and mind. While in savasana, you will rest in a restorative pose.
