IN THE FLOW
Flow or Vinyasa Yoga synchronizes breath and movement as you smoothly transition from one pose to another quite like a dance. In this class you will see a lot of variety but expect movement. Re-energize your body and mind as you focus on the power of breathing and flowing movement through the poses. You will be sure to see Sun Salutations so be prepared to sweat as this class is a more physical style of yoga. Suitable for people of all fitness levels.
Stretch and strengthen your body from head to toe. Learn how to use your breath to calm the mind, ground into your sense of self, and to melt away any negativity in your heart. This class is designed to help bring you balance. In Sanskrit, "ha" means "sun" and "tha" means "moon." Within each one of us there is masculine and feminine energy; there is the potential for both fire and for cooling. Hatha practice aims to bring every part of you into balance using the postures as tools. There will be a focus on safety, alignment, and facilitating a healthy flow of Prana in students of all levels of experience.
Chillout is a slower paced style of yoga where postures are held for a longer time, typically five minutes or longer. These yoga poses target the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. Chillout classes are unique in that your asked to relax in the posture, soften the muscle and work closer to the bone. The aim is to increase circulation to the joint and improve flexibility.
YIN + AROMATHERAPY
This practice is designed to help you sit longer, and more comfortably, in meditation by stretching connective tissue around the joints (mainly the knees, pelvis, sacrum, and spine). A passive practice, Yin Yoga involves variations of seated and supine poses typically held for 3 to 5 minutes, accessing deeper layers of fascia. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, it just did! This class will also get the benefits of fragrant essential oils (as from flowers and fruits) to enhance a feeling of well-being and the ultimate in chill.
YIN + Mindfulness
Same awesomeness as above but with the added dash of meditation to your yin practice. Lets take some time to slow down, dig in and have a quiet listen to our bad ass selves…
