• Yoga Classes

  • The YOGA 1 classes teach the foundation poses of Hatha yoga at a slow pace. They spend the first third of the class on the floor warming and prepping the major joints and limbs before getting to the standing poses. They spend the next 40 minutes working on standing poses and variations. The final 20 minutes devoted to cool down and relaxing inversions. Potential benefits better sleep, less mental and physical tension.

    The YOGA ALL classes teach the foundation poses of Hatha yoga. The pace is set by the group in the room and instructions include variations for different levels of experience. The content varies from week to week. A typical class begins with gentle full body warm-ups, transitions to dynamic movements, standing poses, inversions, dynamic reclined poses, and ends with cooling forward folds and deep relaxation. Potential benefits better sleep less joint stiffness. 

    The YOGA 2 classes refine and build on the foundation poses of Hatha yoga. The pace is set by the grouentialp and is quicker than YOGA ALL. A typical class begins with full body warm-ups and dynamic movements and ends with deep relaxation. The content on the middle varies as the weekly focus cycles through a specific class of poses each week. Classes of poses such as; standing, core, back extension, inversion, forward folds, hips, twists, conscious breathing. Potential benefit improved strength, endurance, ability to induce relaxation.

    The RESTORATIVE classes present the foundation poses differently. They are practiced supported and held for 3 minutes ( or more). They challenge students to find the right amount of effort to enter, hold and relax into each pose. Props such as; walls,chairs, blankets, bolsters, blocks, straps are used. A typical class includes warm-up, forward folds, backward extension, inversion, deep relaxation. Potential benefits better sleep, less mental and physical tension.

    Private/semi-private classes are for personalized instruction and/or self directed folks who need a plan for home practice and/or self directed folks with restrictions who need to work toward attending a regular class.
