Gentle to Moderate Yoga/Drop-In Rate
This class is for students both new to yoga and ongoing students who would like to focus on learning and refining, both active and restorative, yogic postures with the use of props. This practice will build strength, increase flexibility, center the mind, and enhance energy flow. Each student will be given personalized instruction and variations for injuries when needed, as we work towards body alignment and awareness in movement.
Moderate Flow Yoga/Drop-In Rate
This class is for continuing yoga students who wish to challenge their stamina, strength, and flexibility. This practice will generally flow from posture to posture, following various intelligent sequences, and focusing on maintaining breath awareness and using props as needed. Multiple variations of each posture, as well as precise alignment cues, coax the student to mindfully move into more challenging postures–including inversions and back bends, with an emphasis on personal choice and safety.
Restorative Yoga/Drop-In Rate
Our restorative practices are an invitation to take time for yourself for deep relaxation and rejuvenation. You are invited to use a variety of props to fully support the body in shapes that move the spine in all directions and may include heart openers, twists, forward bends, hip openers and inversions with a focus on ease, and optional breath awareness. This is an opportunity to draw senses and attention inward to replenish your well with presence and to invite/activate the more restful (parasympathetic) part of the nervous system.
Yoga for Stress Relief/Drop-In Rate
Regular yoga practice can help check the stress that depletes our bodies bio-energy. Yoga stimulates our cells and relaxes tensed muscles. Yoga science believes that the nerves control our unconscious mind, therefore, when the nervous system is made stronger a person may be more resilient and face stressful situation‘s more positively. This evenings’ yoga practice includes an equal amount of both active and passive postures to improve blood flow to all the cells of the body, revitalizing nerve cells, thus strengthening the nervous system.
Yoga for a Good Night’s Sleep/Drop-In Rate
A Harvard Medical School Trusted Source study found that a regular yoga practice improved sleep efficiency, total sleep time, and how quickly participants fell asleep, among other improvements for those living with insomnia. B.K.S. lyengar, world respected yoga leader, has offered us a routine to aid insomnia which we will follow in this evenings class. We employ gentle stretches and accessible inversions, with the idea of calming the nervous system and winding down from a busy day. Dress warmly as this is a more restorative yoga practice.
Yoga for Immune Support/Drop-In Rate
Practicing yoga provides a gentle, natural means of supporting the immune system on a day-to-day basis. Scientific studies are showing that yoga helps lower stress hormones that compromise the immune system, while also helping to condition the lungs and respiratory tract, stimulating the lymphatic system to remove toxins from the body, and bringing oxygenated blood to the organs to ensure their optimal function. We will practice various modified postures of forward bends, backbends and inversions, to lend a hand in supporting and strengthening the immune system.We will include breath exercises, to condition the lungs and maximize breath capacity, to help build resistance to disease. Meditation may also reduce the incidence of infectious ailments by de-stressing the body and mind. Ample research has shown that just 20 minutes of meditation a day increases endorphins, decreases cortisol levels, and fosters positive states of mind to promote better health. We will complete our practice together with a mindfulness meditation.
Slow Flow for All/Drop-In Rate
This is a slower paced practice which offers an opportunity to link movement with breath and is open to all levels of practitioners including beginners looking to slow down their practice. Participants are welcome to find their own rhythm via breath or movement pace, and many variations are provided to offer more accessible options for all including the use of supports such blocks, blanket, bolsters and chairs as well as the invitation to rest or adapt your practice to suit your own experience at any time for any reason. These classes also offer opportunities to promote strength, stability and balance as well as time for rest and rejuvenation.
