 Class Descriptions

 

Beginner Yoga - Students who are new to yoga will benefit from learning the foundations of a yoga practice, including basic yoga postures, breath work, meditation, and deep relaxation.  This class will help you build strength, confidence, flexibility, and concentration.

Chair Yoga - Gentle or dynamic yoga poses are practiced with the use of a chair as an essential yoga prop.  Gentle chair yoga may consist of an entire seated practice, which can be beneficial for seniors, those with physical limitations, or even for those in office environments.  A dynamic chair yoga practice involves more challenging poses and standing movements, such as arm balances and sun salutations, while using the chair as a yoga prop to assist the experience in a pose.

Gentle Yoga - Suitable for new yoga students. Gentle, relaxing movements help ease the stresses of daily life. This slower-paced class is also a nurturing practice for those with chronic pain or limitations resulting from injuries or illness.

Prenatal Yoga - This nurturing practice is designed to help expectant mothers feel empowered, inspired, and connected during the sacred journey of pregnancy and motherhood. Prenatal yoga addresses the physical, mental, and emotional needs of pregnant women throughout all the stages of pregnancy. The instructor will explain why poses are relevant and will emphasize effective coping resources to calm and center self, mind, nerves and fears.

Restorative Yoga - A slow, gentle moving, and passive practice which holds poses for longer periods, nurturing the joints, organs, and deeper connective tissues of the body. Experience deep relaxation as you lounge in the poses, while incorporating breath work and mindfulness to calm the nervous system. This is an excellent practice in learning the art of melting away stress and tension.

Trauma-Informed Yoga - Trauma is an experience that overwhelms our capacity to cope.  It affects the mind, body, and spirit.  Trauma robs us of the feeling that we are in charge of ourselves.  Trauma-Informed Yoga is a mind-body practice that aims to compassionately and mindfully help us (re)discover empowerment, decompress from chronic states of fight/flight/freeze, and create new connections in the ways we relate to ourselves and the world. In a safe and supportive environment, we experiment with breathing, moving, strengthening, stretching, and resting. Students are in control over what they are doing with their body at all times.  This practice is suitable and accessible for everybody; however, Trauma-Informed Yoga is specifically designed for trauma survivors as an adjunctive trauma recovery method.

Vinyasa (Flow Yoga) - This class allows students of all levels (from beginners to seasoned yogis) to safely explore and challenge themselves in poses that build upon and flow into one another.  Poses are meant to provide a balance of flexibility and strength, and are accompanied with breath work, meditation and deep relaxation.

Yin Yoga - Suitable for all levels. This style of yoga focuses on the connective tissues (joints, ligaments, bones). This class consists mostly of passive floor poses (i.e. not standing) that are held for 3-5 minutes each. As always, there are plenty of modifications for each pose to make sure that you are comfortable yet feeling challenged. This class is a great way to achieve greater range of motion and feel a renewed sense of energy.

Yoga Nidra - Also known as "yogic sleep," Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation that leads to a state of conscious deep sleep for profound relaxation and inner exploration. This practice can be modified to last 20-60 minutes.
