Vinyasa is the Sanskrit term for flow and refers to the alignment of breath and movement to create a dynamic, flowing form of yoga. Poses are held for a specific number of breaths before moving on to the next pose. Vinyasa also refers to the movements or series of movements done between each pose within a series. Perfect body alignment is not emphasized, as is the case for traditional Hatha yoga; however, corrections and/or modifications will be offered during class as needed.
CLASSIC HATHA YOGA
In this class postures are held for an extended period of time, focusing on the exact alignment for each individual, dependent upon their present physical capabilities, focusing on a specific rhythmic breathing pattern, and focusing attentively with the eyes for each posture, to acutely increase one’s ability to concentrate. Every posture is then alternated with repose in savasana, the corpse, or rest pose. The two-hour class concludes with approximately 10 minutes of pranayama (breath retention, or control) and a 15-minute seated silent meditation. Though the class is intense, it operates as a one-room school house, open to all levels of practitioners, from first-time beginners, to those physically challenged, to those highly advanced. Each will receive modifications appropriate to their level of practice.
VINYASA WITH ALIGNMENT
In this Vinyasa class the pace is slightly slower, allowing the student time to follow alignment cues, settle in the poses and, with practice, find harmony in the different postures (asanas). We’ll combine the flow of Vinyasa and the steadiness of Hatha to develop strength, suppleness, and focus. At the end of class, we’ll share a few minutes of meditation, the ultimate goal of yoga practice.
CORE AND RESTORE YOGA
This is an evening class that will take you through movement and connection through breath and core, into relaxed and restored poses that will allow you to fully emerge into your own personal space and find your internal peace within.
REIKI FLOW AND RESTORE
This 60-minute offering combines a short and mindful Vinyasa flow, restorative yoga postures, Reiki hands-on healing, aromatherapy, intention setting, and energetic empowerment. All levels are welcome. Students are invited to arrive early and set up in a supported Supta Baddha Konasana shape.
HATHA VINYASA YOGA
Develop balance, clarity, and ease within sequences of traditional postures connected by breath and sustainable movement. Explore space, discover support, and relax deeply. When we fully embody the meaning of “moving into stillness”, yoga becomes one seamless process. All are welcome.
VINYASA FLOW WITH MEDITATION
This open level class explores two aspects of yoga: a vinyasa flow followed by a meditation. The class begins with linking the breath to postures through a vinyasa sequence where strength, flexibility, and balance are practiced. The class ends in a grounding meditation. Whether you’re new to meditation or have an existing practice, various mediation techniques are emphasized to ease tension, stress and bring conscious relaxation and self-awareness.
KUNDALINI YOGA AND MEDITATION
Kundalini class is a combination of Yoga, Pilates, Qi Gong and Zen meditation with strong emphasis on flow of energy to reach peace associated with spiritual awakening. Each class is different yet you can always expect to do breathing exercises, strong body workout, chanting, gong relaxation and powerful meditation. Students usually experience tiny shifts in their consciousness which have potential to create ripples of positive change in their life.
RESTORATIVE YOGA WITH PRANAYAMA
All channels are open with traditional breathing techniques, pranayama, in gentle supported postures that use props and gravity to ease and center body and mind. A meditation on breath and feeling, movement and stillness, this grounding yet elevating practice guides us into the present moment, our natural state of being that nurtures the relationship between body, mind, and spirit. Vibration, gesture, and intention allow us to tune into the body-mind as sacred space, and create the conditions for peace and healing inside and out
Pilates is a system of exercises developed by Joseph and Clara Pilates. It promotes body awareness, balance, strength, flexibility and coordination. Pilates develops core strength, as well as an overall leaner body that moves with grace and ease. It improves posture, tones muscles and strengthens the entire body. This class is designed to help you rebalance your body and restore the natural curves of your spine. While engaging the “powerhouse” muscles of the pelvis, abdomen, and back through articulation and stabilization, you can build strength, improve posture, and gain flexibility.
