Suitable for all levels. A gentle approach to yoga with special attention to modifications for specific limitations. This is a perfect beginning yoga class that is also appropriate for those working with injury, limited mobility, or who desire a more calming and gentler practice.
If you are recovering from an injury, surgery, cancer treatments--or if you just need a class to balance your vigorous yoga practices--gentle yoga is just right for you! We will still work on building strength, balance, and flexibility, but within a format that will support you and meet your needs.
Hatha Yoga L1
Good choice for beginners. Hatha Yoga focuses on basic yoga poses with proper alignment and breathing techniques. This class is recommended for those that are new to yoga or those that want to return to the very fundamentals of a yoga practice and move more slowly. Pose modifications and props are offered to help make the practice of yoga more accessible for all.
In these classes students will move fluidly from one pose to the next while syncing breath with movement. The practice will incorporate strength, flexibility, balance, cardio, physical and mental stamina in one session. Modifications will be given for a variety of experience levels with a focus on proper alignment. Depending on the instructor, options for inversions and arm balances may be given. See schedule for more specific class descriptions and appropriate levels.
Yin/Yang yoga is a practice that balances both mind and body. Yin and yang complement each other and one cannot exist without the other. Yang is a masculine, dynamic, warming energy, and Yin is a feminine, passive, cooling energy. Start this class with Yang, a vinyasa style that builds strength throughout the body. End the class with Yin to calm and surrender into your mat. Leave feeling restored and energized with this active and passive approach to yoga.
Suitable for all levels. Good choice for beginners. This class moves at a slower pace than our vinyasa classes, but still offers a gentle flowing sequence of postures to build strength, stability, flexibility, and breath awareness. Stretch all major muscles of your body, and expect to leave feeling refreshed, renewed, and blissful.
Suitable for all levels. Deep Stretch involves active stretching, focusing on muscle groups surrounding the hips, hamstrings, quads, and upper back. Students will be led through a series of postures, using longer holds, coupled with breath and mindfulness, as a tool for deep release.
