Alignment Based- A yoga class for new beginners, or for anyone wanting a gentler class. This is a good class to begin your training, as the pace of this class moves slowly, paying attention to principles of alignment and breathing. If you are new to yoga, coming back, or working with an injury, the pace and focus of the class would be appropriate. (75 minute class)
Level 2 Flow- This class is appropriate for beginner and experienced students that are somewhat familiar with yoga postures. We will use creative sequencing to link postures together, using the flow of the breath to guide the movement. The emphasis will be on generating energy and heat to let the body release toxins and tight muscles. The room is slightly warm and class is accompanied by music! (75 minute class)
Level 3 Warm Flow- Room will be heated with the humidifier on to encourage flexibility and a cleansing detox for the body. (75 minute class)
Beginners Yoga- Taking the very first step! This class is designed to teach the basics to anyone willing to learn. We will focus on building each pose from its foundation and gaining strength to hold poses longer each time you come! Many people practice in this class for years while others use it as a stepping stone before moving on to other advanced classes.
Yin/Restorative - is a passive yoga practice that involves variations of seated and supine poses typically held for longer periods of time then a flow class. This class is open to all levels but gentle enough for folks with limited mobility. This practice especially works the connective tissue around the joints (mainly the knees, pelvis, sacrum, and spine). In our day to day activities we are usually rushing and moving pretty quickly. Yin Yoga gives us the opportunity to slow down the body and in turn slow down the mind.
Private Yoga Session: private classes offer a one on one opportunity to learn and grow on and off your mat. Classes will be planned and discussed with you according to what you would like to work on or based around an injury or recovery. We can also work around your schedule to make it as conveinent for you as possible! Contact the studio for more information or questions! 336.701.7275
