A Voyage of Self Discovery

 

GENTLE HATHA

Our Cool Gentle Yoga is a class that will focus on Yin, Hatha or Restorative yoga, suitable for any age any level. The cool means that we do not add any heat. This class is a wonderful way to connect to the breath while moving. Students must be able to get down onto the floor as this involves seated, lying and standing postures.

Experience a laid back class that's emphasis is on community.

YIN WITH MEDITATION

Unwind with our 45 minute Yin Yoga followed by a 15 min Yoga Nidra to help you fall asleep with ease. During the Yin Yoga portion we hold our poses longer, working on our connective tissues as opposed to our muscles. Yin is slow paced, offering the opportunity to sit in the pose and explore it's sensations and the feelings that may arise as a result.

 

In closing, we explore Yoga Nidra, a form of guided meditation. Usually practiced lying down with a teacher guiding the session, Yoga Nidra draws our attention inwards. We learn to surf between the states of wakefulness and sleep, where our body finds its natural state of equilibrium (homeostasis) – the breath balances and becomes quiet, unconscious and conscious aspects of the mind reveal themselves, and we fall into an innate state of deep, blissful awareness. An excellent pre-bedtime experience.

HOT VINYASA FLOW

Vinyasa is a style of yoga characterized by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath. Commonly referred to as "flow" yoga, in Sanskrit vinyasa means “to place in a special way.”  A vinyasa practice generates heat which is not always present in other forms of yoga. Our vinyasa classes are uniquely designed by each individual instructor meaning that each practice is built on the creativity and vision of that teacher for that time. The goal of your practice is to move with intention and the breath. Students are encouraged to stay present and mindful during class, since no two vinyasa classes are ever alike. 

 

Expect the class temperature to be heated. Please bring water & a small towel.

You do not want to miss out!

YIN (ROOM TEMP)

The essence of Yin Yoga is surrender. Join us for a mindfulness practice that connect body and mind. Great for beginners and practitioners of all skill levels, the practice of yin helps us focus our awareness in the present moment. Open up and grant yourself the space to explore thoughts, feelings, body sensations, and surrounding environment through a gentle,  nourishing lens.

 

Yin focuses on postures that 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. Yin Yoga practices typically include several long, seated forward bending postures, helping to restore energy and calm the nervous system.

WARM VINYASA FLOW

Prefer your Vinyasa without the heat? We got you! Vinyasa is a style of yoga characterized by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath. Commonly referred to as “flow” yoga. Vinyasa classes offer a variety of postures linked to the breath, and no two classes are ever alike. Our Warm Vinyasa Flow classes are perfect for all-levels, whether you are a beginner or advanced student, this class is for you. If you are interested in hot yoga but not ready to take the plunge, this is a great starting point to begin to acclimate your body to the heat. Even though the room will not be as hot as our Hot Vinyasa Flow class, we still recommend that you bring water and a small towel.

HOT SLOW FLOW VINYASA

All levels welcome,  Learn to combine breathing, flowing postures and meditation in this gentle, but deep approach to Vinyasa yoga. This slower-paced flow class allows time to explore the postures while cultivating strength, flexibility, balance, and calm. Yoga poses are linked to breath to help reveal body awareness, inner strength and easeful opening. This class is dynamic and will stretch and lengthen every muscle in your body from your head to your toes, but it will do so in a gentle, soothing, and relaxing way.  Relax, let go, and enjoy the slow flow!
