Flow yoga is a fluid style of yoga that links movement with breath for a dynamic mind-body workout. This style of yoga generates heat, builds strength and flexibility, and focuses the mind. Students practice sun salutations, standing and balancing postures, seated forward bends and twists, arm balances, backbends and inversions for a well-rounded and energizing practice. Previous yoga experience recommended.
Gentle Stretch & Restore
Enjoy soothing stretches and poses using props that you can find around your home to support your practice. Includes gentle stretching to help unwind from your day. This practice helps to heal the effects of chronic stress on the body, mind, and spirit. We recommend bringing two blocks and a blanket or towel with you to this class in studio. Open to all levels.
Yin yoga is a slow and deep practice to stretch the connective tissues and joints of the hips, thighs and lower spinal area. Unlike the muscles, which are more yang parts of our bodies, the connective tissues need to be addressed with a quiet attitude of acceptance. Postures are mostly practiced on the floor and can be held from one to 10 minutes. Yin Yoga balances the yin and yang aspect of ourselves, encourages the flow of prana (energy), helps maintain the health of the connective tissues, and helps us develop a mindful practice. We recommend bringing two blocks and a blanket or towel with you to this class in studio.
Yin & Gentle Flow
This soothing practice combines the deep stretching of Yin yoga with gentle flowing yoga. Enjoy long holds for the connective tissues and joints and soothing, slow flows to relieve tension, relax the body, and quiet the mind. Open to all levels.
This class is the perfect antidote to a fast paced lifestyle and a great compliment to other forms of yoga. Ease into a gentle yoga practice including stretching movements, immunity building techniques, and stress-releasing flows. As you feel more relaxed, you will be guided into restorative yoga postures to help bring the body into a state of balance and peace. We recommend bringing two blocks and a blanket or towel with you to this class in studio.
