Our yoga classes are designed for all levels. Our smaller class sizes allow for more individualized attention than you might find from a larger studio. We not only focus on the physical postures, but also breathwork and meditation facilitating a complete practice.
Hatha yoga is a balanced combination of sustained yoga poses with attention to basic alignment and therapeutic principals. Mindfulness; observing the breath and body are an integral part of this class. Hatha Yoga provides a great stretch and strengthens the body. Emphasis is placed on CORE (Consciousness Organized in Relation to Energy) strength, flexibility and balance as well as concentration and breath control.
Restorative Yoga is a form of yoga with passive restorative poses and postures to open the body, quiet the mind and move you into a deep sense of relaxation.
Slow yoga practice encourages mindful movement and greater self-awareness while building strength and resilience. Detailed attention is given to safe alignment, transitions and stability. Connecting movement with breath at a slower more intentional pace creates awareness of the subtle shifts and sensations in the body. Props are encouraged. “Nothing good ever happens in a hurry.”
Therapeutic Yoga is a particularly effective practice for those recovering from, or living with, injury or illness. Therapeutic Yoga combines restorative yoga (supported postures), gentle yoga, breathwork, hands-on healing, and guided meditation techniques in such a way that it is an excellent choice for those who need something gentle yet effective for bringing the body into balance and reducing stress. Therapeutic Yoga is a deeply meditative experience – it provides the opportunity to step away from the busyness of the outside world and access the deeper wisdom that resides within us.
Yoga nidra (also known as yogic sleep) is a powerful technique for controlling your body’s relaxation response. Yoga nidra can be as restorative as sleep, while you remain fully conscious. Giving your mind and body an extra window of deep relaxation offers powerful benefits! 1 hour of Yoga nidra is the equivalent of 4 hours of sleep.
