Yoga Flow (all levels)

 

In this class we will begin by connecting with slow & steady breaths.  By progressively adding more movement to that breath we create a flow of movement that brings intention of overall well-being into our practice on the mat and continue to resonate off the mat.

 

 

 

Reflect and Renew

 

In this class we will check in on the past week.  Anything we are holding on to, we will practice letting go, forgiving, finding grace and creating conditions to move through the weekend and into the upcoming week with a refreshed and renewed spirit.  We will create movement that synchronizes with the breath to settle our nervous system.

 

 

Yin

 

With Yin yoga we gently stretch and rehabilitate the connective tissues that form our joints.  While focusing on the cultivation of  long (3-5 minute) holds in postures to stretch and open the tissues of the body & cultivate the flow of fluid and energy through the body.  This assists in creating the feelings of ease and lightness in our bodies and the flexibility of our joints.  Meditation may be offered as a part of this practice.  Yin is excellent for students looking for meditative practice with an aspect of physical & mental restoration and rejuvenation.

 

 

Restorative

 

With only 5-6 poses held for longer periods of time you’ll restore and rejuvenate the body, mind and soul. Using the support of props & therapeutic breathing will help you to relax deeply and release residual tension, restoring natural balance and harmony. Nurturing & healing practice that is appropriate for all levels and can be very beneficial for those looking to bring balance to the stress of a busy life style. Singing bowls and gong may be incorporated in this class depending on the theme.

 

 

Yoga Nidra

 

Relaxation does not happen by doing more but by doing less.  Yoga Nidra is about releasing the struggle to make anything happen.  It is the practice of doing nothing to arrive exactly where you want to be. This is all possible through a specific guided meditation unlike other guided meditations.  The best part is anyone can do it.  If you lay on a mat and cover up with a blanket you can do Yoga Nidra.

 

Is Yoga Nidra hypnosis? The answer is No.  It’s a relaxation practice that puts you in a sleep state while being awake and aware.

 

Yoga Nidra is a great and simple way of relieving stress by promoting deep rest and relaxation that you do not get from other forms of Yoga. By combining breathe awareness and utilizing the stages of the body scan you can calm your nervous system while reducing stress and creating all around better health for yourself.
