SOULFUL SUNDAY (HOT VINYASA FLOW)
A Hot Vinyasa Flow Style that focus on the foundations of yoga philosophy including the Yamas and Niyamas, an exploration of the chakras and a better understanding of the Yoga Sutras. Expect to sweat
The essence of Yin Yoga is surrender. To balance the heat-building, blood pumping, strengthening "yang" side of a Vinyasa Flow or Ashtanga practice, Yin focuses on posturethat lengthen the muscles surrounding the hips, pelvis, and lower back. Students typically hold these postures for 3-5 minutes per side in order to lengthen the connective tissue that surrounds the joints and increase its elasticity. The elasticity of our connective tissue diminishes with physical activity and aging, which makes Yin essential for injury prevention and joint health.
HOT VINYASA YOGA
All of our classes with the exception of our Yin and Gentle are Vinyasa Flow. Breathe in light and radiate bliss as you move through energetic and joy-boosting yoga flows designed to tap into your power and keep you flowing from pose to pose with grace."Vinyasa Flow" means to link breath and movement. Our Hot Vinyasa Flow is practiced in a heated room to aid in warming the body for the practice. The heat allows your muscles to ease through their full range of motion within your own individual, physical limits. Focus is on balance, power, fluidity, flexibility and alignment while continuing to emphasize the fundamentals of yoga. Whether you are looking to improve your metabolism and circulation, or strengthen your cardiovascular system, this is the class for you! Hot Yoga is known for its detoxification benefits through sweat along with rejuvenation of the skin. Melt away years of stress and cleanse your body of toxins as you stretch and strengthen.
