All classes focus on safe alignment structured by the principals of anatomy, biomechanics, and kinesiology.
Regardless of level, each class offers an opportunity to build strength, increase flexibility, and improve your balance and core stability. Most of all, let go of any expectations and have fun exploring. All you really need to do is breathe.
Intro to Yoga - This is a 4 class series designed for the absolute beginner to build a foundation for Vinyasa Flow. Once a week for four weeks you will be introduced to the fundamentals of yoga, including relaxing breathing techniques, the basics of Sun Salutations, Warrior Series, and safe alignment principals. Postures are broken down step by step, combining strength and stretches to make you comfortable, confident, ready to flow! Preparation for Basics/Beginner class if you’ve never practiced yoga before.
Basics/Beginner Vinyasa Flow – Synchronizing movement with breath to create a flowing and graceful practice. We warm-up with Sun Salutations to build heat in the muscles, joints, and connective tissue (sweat is a desired effect!) so we can hold the standing postures safely to tone and strengthen our muscles. Less complicated balance postures, gentle and restorative back bends, basic twists and inversions to encourage lymphatic flow and rinse the internal organs. Deep stretching at the end to release tension and lengthen the muscles to their fullest potential. Detoxifying for the mind and body. You’ll leave feeling lighter, calmer, and more centered.
Intermediate Vinyasa Flow - (Great cross-training for athletes, if you’re a runner, biker, tennis player, etc.) An intermediate class combines traditional yoga asanas with the most up-to-date fitness moves to create a longer, stronger, leaner, and healthier body. Linking breath with movement in a flowing (vinyasa) style practice. More complex flows, deeper, longer held postures, balance work, back bends, arm balances. Twists and inversions to encourage lymphatic flow and rinse internal organs. Options are always given so that everyone works to their own ability. You’ll leave feeling focused, centered, and rebalanced.
Injury Prevention for Athletes: Great stretch and relax class geared towards release and recovery for injury prevention. Mental skills, visualization, meditation, and breath training techniques woven throughout the class. Recommended for Post-training to teach muscles how to turn off so they can rest deeply to speed recovery. This class will improve range of motion in shoulders, hips, legs, and spine as well as rebalance the nervous system. Many of these stretches can be done anywhere once you learn the proper alignment to incorporate as part of your post-training routine anywhere you go.
