A class for those who are new to yoga, or those with experience who wish to refine and review the basics. We'll cover basic postures, breath, and alignment principals, with modifications tailored to meet the needs of every body. We have mats, blocks, and everything that you need to practice with us.
All Levels Yoga
Beginners as well as advanced practitioners are welcome to take this class, and options will be given to fit various practice levels. Emphasis is on finding proper alignment in the poses and using the breath to find a balance between effort and ease.
This class is a slow-paced combination of gentle postures and flowing movements. All bodies will be accommodated, and no previous yoga experience is necessary.
Woven of asana (postures), pranayama (breath), and meditation, this practice has deep tantric philosophical roots commingled with modern research in body-mind consciousness. Incorporating principles of Body-Mind Centering, Embodyoga® is "yoga from the inside out," inviting us to fully embody our cells, fluids, and tissues; to move with integration and whole-body support templates; and to profoundly experience the depth of our awareness.
Holistic (Akhanda®) Yoga is designed to inspire students through the diverse aspects of yoga including; asana, pranayama, mantra, mudra, relaxation & meditation. These techniques work synergistically to deepen your exploration of the body/mind connection, release blockages and cleanse outmoded thought patterns. This practice aims to heighten your energetic awareness and to balance and expand the flow of prana. A nice class choice for stress reduction.
During restorative yoga the body is passively supported on props and invited to relax completely, gently stretching while being supported from underneath. A typical class will be comprised of 3-5 long-held postures. The goal of restorative yoga is to bring the body-mind into a deep state of relaxation. Class size limited to 10 people, and no previous yoga experience is necessary.
Passively held postures are held for longer durations of time (often with the support of props) to bring the body into a deeper stretch. The practice targets our deepest tissues of the body— our connective tissues, including ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body. No previous yoga experience necessary.
Incorporating postures, pranayama (breath work), and meditation, this class synchronizing movement and breath in a flowing sequence. The postures move fluidly from one to the next, with opportunities for longer holds woven throughout. Some previous yoga experience recommended.
