If you know exactly what type of yoga class you’re looking for, this is where you’ll find it. We have everything from arm balances to inversions and everything in between.
Welcome to the celebration of life class! We move through a yummy 45-minute fiery flow practice to embrace all the things that make life life: ups and downs, awareness of what is, and a whole lot of prana (also known as breath, also known as life-force energy).
Have you ever heard someone say, "take a deep breath"? This practice is for everyone and anyone wanting to get out of their head and into their breath as a way of calming down. We explore a brief introduction with reminders as to why breathwork is so important. Through gentle and informative instruction, we move through ujjayi breath and analoma viloma, which are two of the most calming breath practices for the nervous system. Ahhh.
This short but very sweet practice starts with a brief seated meditation honoring the precious and sacred time that this practice truly allows for. In this space and throughout the practice, we seek to find and honor what we truly need to receive from our practice- your intention. Physically we will target all the major body parts that need space: hips, heart, hamstrings, core and shoulders.
This short meditation tunes out distraction and teaches us to focus on building self-awareness. We become so quiet that we can better hear the intuitive voice.
After more than a year into the pandemic and with things beginning to open up, it is important that we take some time to ground back into our bodies. We’ve all dealt with trauma in one way or another this past year and grounding can help. Grounding involves re-engaging the legs and feet to feel sure of ourselves and safe in our bodies. Part 3 in this series gives us an opportunity to gently stretch the legs, feet and hips to release the stresses of our everyday lives and strengthen the connection between mind and body.
This short, 20 minute practice, allows you to start the day off right with clear intentions and focus for the day. A simple flow that focuses on all the major muscle groups.
This gentle yoga class is for mothers who have not yet been cleared for exercise post birth yet are in need of some yoga. It introduces safe effective poses to help release upper back tension, create more space in the neck and shoulders while beginning to tone the pelvic floor muscles.
Gentle Yoga styles help to get the body out of stress-mode, release tension, calm the nervous system, gain clearer thinking, and even restore an overall sense of balance to the body, the mind and the soul. This 30 min gentle yoga class includes some dynamic movement to help you build a healing heat, as well as some hatha poses, where we hold the pose and relax into it. Focusing on asanas that open and release the shoulders, lengthen the spine and hamstrings, while bringing stability to your core and low back... will help you unwind, quiet your mind and feel open and at ease. You could benefit from having 2 blocks or a bolster near you. Namaste.
This sequence might be short but it’s effective! After finding our breath and setting our intentions we will move through 5 different core moves, targeting all four groups of abdominal muscles. A lot of us think core strength means you have to have a flat tummy or six-pack abs. And while those may be motivational goals to some of you, there really are so many more benefits that come from improving your core strength. Benefits include improved posture, better balance, reduced back pain and better athletic performance on and off the yoga mat. You can do this sequence 1-3x through a few days a week to feel and see the benefits both physically and energetically.
When your lower back and hips feel tight, sometimes all you need is a little yoga to soothe you. This class will help you create more space in your low back and hips. Short, sweet and to the point. Sometimes all you need is a little love.
This chakra yoga practice focuses on honing your intuition through various yoga postures designed to activate the third eye and crown chakras. Your 6th Chakra is your third eye chakra and your 7th Chakra is your crown chakra. Tapping into these two chakra's is all about connecting to your intuition as well as to your higher power. This chakra practice begins with meditation and pranayama and continues in a slow moving fashion. You are encouraged to practice with your eyes closed for as much as you can. Learn to trust your own inner-knowing. This all around slow flow will leave you feeling grounded and connected to both yourself and the Universe. Finish with a Chakra meditation.
There is a famous quote by Henry Ford that says "Whether you think you can or you think you can't - you're right." This flow is designed to move through simple yoga postures to help you build confidence and ease in your practice. We will warm up with Surya Namaskara A and B and then a simple warrior two flow. This leads to the ground finishing with hip openers and a twist. So much of your success or failure in life depends on your attitude. See the good and believe in yourself.
