Class Descriptions

Beginner's Yoga

Great for people completely new to yoga, Beginner's Yoga class covers basic poses and discovering the correct posture and alignment for your body. We also discuss how poses benefit the body for health and well-being. Students will learn to develop and strengthen their personal practice by covering basic standing poses, forward bends, back bends, twists, and maybe an inversion or two! Beginners Yoga classes are
suitable for all skill levels, including Beginner Yogis and beyond.

 

Chair Yoga

Chair Yoga adapts the classic yoga poses for use in a chair, so this class is great for yogis who experience limited mobility or have trouble getting up and down on the floor. Students will learn how to safely warm up the body and perform yoga poses with more support and stability. Poses are done seated on the chair or the chair is used for support during standing poses, forward and backward bends, side extensions,
balancing, and leg and arm stretches. Chair Yoga classes are suitable for all ages, fitness levels, and physical conditions.

Gentle Yoga

Gentle Yoga classes are a slow and steady practice that helps the student understand how to customize the poses to fit their body’s needs and their individual skill level. The slower pace of this class is perfect for students who are new to yoga, experiencing physical limitations, recovering from injury, those looking for improved range of movement, or students looking for a less vigorous practice. Gentle Yoga classes are suitable for students of all ages.

 

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga uses props to create an environment for our mind and body to relax deeply. A regular restorative practice relieves stress and fatigue, soothes and stimulates the organs, regulates blood sugar levels, calms the mind and brings balance and health into the body. When we relax our nervous system deeply our body can begin to heal itself. Most of us live in a chronic state of stress, compromising our body's capacity for repair and inhibiting recovery from an existing illness, such as high blood pressure, back pain, digestive issues, immune dysfunction, reproductive problems and depression. The antidote to stress is relaxation! Restorative Yoga classes are suitable for all ages, fitness levels, and physical conditions.

 

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga focuses on the connective tissues of the body through postures that are held in stillness and mindful awareness for several minutes at a time. These classes address tightness and toxin buildup in the joints and connective tissue through poses that are equally challenging for the mind and body. The result is not only more lubricated and flexible joints, but also a greater sense of balance, peace, and calm. Yin Yoga classes are suitable for all ages, fitness levels, and physical conditions. Props make the practice accessible to people of all abilities.
