Children’s class

Our children’s class is an excellent way to introduce children to developing body awareness and the importance of physical activity and breath.   We have no minimum age requirement at this time , we only ask that the children have enough maturity and interest to follow the instructor.

Our Children’s class follows the school year holidays and breaks and begin one week into the school year in September and one week after the winter break.

All levels

All levels is a good introduction to yoga, appropriate for beginners and advanced students.  You will learn how to execute postures correctly and develop breath awareness.

Yoga Flow

Yoga flow is a more active class. For those looking for more of a workout, this is the class for you.  Poses are connected with transitions and the breath aids in keeping the heat in the body.

Restorative

Restorative class is a relaxation and regeneration practice.  Equipment is used to promote passive postures.  The postures are held longer so that the body can learn to completely relax.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a mindful practice which is designed to open up the stiffer parts of the body, the fascia (connective tissue), ligaments, tendons, and joints.  It also helps to relieve blockages in the energy lines of the body (meridian lines, chi, or life force).

In this practice we are instructed to take poses to our edge, using our minds and breath to stay  in the poses for 3 to 5 minutes.  The reason for the length of time in the poses is to allow stretching to occur in these more rigid parts of the body.  Yin Yoga is a great balance to the Yang Practice (a more physical practice, such as Yoga Flow or Ashtanga.)  It will help your body to be more comfortable when coming into  stillness for meditation.  

Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga Yoga is an active class which helps to balance the mental, physical and spiritual pressures and stresses posed by the modern world we live in today.  it develops union of mind, body and spirit.  We begin with warm ups using Surya Nmaskara A and B (Sun Salutations), followed by standing poses, all guided by the breath.  Next are the seated postures with pose and counterpose.  Then we move on to the prone poses, laying on the floor.  Lastly stretching the neck and spine, balancing out the forward bending asanas, with Setu Bandhasana (the bridge Pose), finishing postures and inversions.  We conclude with Savasana (Corpse Pose).  This pose allows the body to integrate and remember the balancing effects of the practice just completed.

Hatha Yoga

Beginners, intermediate, advanced -  Hatha Yoga is a holistic approach to promoting vibrant health and personal fulfillment.  Hatha Yoga embraces the physical aspects of Yoga, the classical Yoga poses (asana’s), breathing techniques (pranayama) and the ethical principles of Yoga (Yama’s and Niyama’s).  Meditation and relaxation techniques form a part of our Hatha Yoga classes.
