DEEP STRETCH

FOUNDATIONS

The beginner class series introduces the history of yoga, fundamental principles of alignment, and breath work. Students will be introduced to yoga postures through step-by-step verbal description and demonstration. Emphasis is placed on student understanding, safety, and stability within each pose. If you have never tried yoga this series is perfect for you and is designed to meet the needs of those new to yoga as well as those seeking continued understanding of basic yoga poses. Every Body Welcome!

EVERY BODY FLOW

Learn basic Vinyasa Flow techniques with modifications offered for all practice levels and all abilities. Class is Beginner to Intermediate friendly. 

YIN

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga as exercise, incorporating principles of traditional Chinese medicine, with asanas (postures) that are held for longer periods of time than in other styles. For beginners, asanas may be held from 45 seconds to two minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more. The sequences of postures are meant to stimulate the channels of the subtle body known as meridians in Chinese medicine and as nadis in Hatha yoga.

Yin Yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fasciae, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, its goals are awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.

Excellent for those new to the practice of yoga. We take our time in deep stretches and feel the body move more deeply. During this class we move slowly and smoothly to increase flexibility, decrease muscle tension, develop core strength, and improve muscular balance. Vinyasa's are excluded from this class. 60 Minutes

Students are also encouraged to stay after class for conversation with one another and sip on some coffee or tea!

ZEN FLOW

Complete your day with a grounding and relaxing practice. Zen Flow combines 45 minutes of Slow Flow with 15 minutes of guided meditation. Slow Flow is meditative, emphasizing peace and calm in body and mind. Poses are held longer, taking several rounds of breath in each pose, instead of moving to each breath. Guided meditation focuses on connecting with the breath and body and experiencing relaxation and grounding.
