If you have never done yoga before, this is the class for you! This class is also great if you would like to brush up on some of the basics, work on your alignment, or learn how to modify postures using props. Expect basic poses and simple cues from this class that is designed for beginners or yogis looking to get back to fundamentals.
Comfortable postures, use of props, and time to rest into each posture. This practice is calming, reduces stress, and soothes the nervous system through gentle postures, breathing practices, and meditation.
Accessible & Chair Yoga
Yoga class built for you. This class makes yoga accessible to those with different physical abilities, movement restrictions, or recovering from injury. Expect a slow paced, individualized practice complete with breathe work. The use of props including chairs allow you to find your expression of every pose or transition.
Vinyasa-Flow classes focus on mindful movement that links body and breath. Students will be guided through an energizing flow from posture to posture and/or incorporate movement and conscious breathing in a held posture. Our teachers each have a unique spin on what a Flow class looks like, so come with an open mind.
Vinyasa-Flow classes are defined as 1 or 2.
Vinyasa-Flow 1 is more active than Gentle Yoga but is generally accessible to a variety of experience levels. Cues will frequently be given to make the practice more or less physically challenging. If you have done yoga before and know some basic postures, this is a good place to start.
Vinyasa-Flow 2 increases the physical practice a little more, in terms of pace, holds, and strengthening postures. This may also include more physically challenging postures, including arm balances, binds, and inversions. You may receive less cues for modifications and props usage, but you are always encouraged to listen to your body and do what works for you.
This is a slower paced yoga, meditative in nature, targeting the deeper tissues of the body with passive long held poses. The poses are performed while either seated or lying on the yoga mat, with a minimal amount of physical exertion aiming to release physical and emotional tensions that have accumulated in the body due to the stress of work and personal lives. Some benefits of a yin yoga practice include reducing stress and anxiety, improving flexibility both on and off the mat, releasing fascia and improving the flow of chi or prana in the body through meridian stimulation. This is an all levels class, appropriate for beginners and seasoned yogis alike.
