Descriptions

HATHA I – Our most popular class! Join us for a well-rounded practice that will keep your joints healthy, muscles toned and organs working efficiently. Hatha I classes help improve strength, flexibility and balance. By incorporating breath awareness into the classes, you will also reduce stress, balance the nervous system and leave feeling refreshed and focused.

HATHA II – Experience a deeper focus and connection in your practice as you hold poses a little longer and become more graceful in challenging poses. Hatha II classes will help you build a stronger foundation both physically and energetically so that your poses become light and full of ease but also able to contain more power. This class will also use pranayama to strengthen the nervous system and balance the emotions providing a gateway to the more subtle realms of yoga.

GENTLE YOGA – Are you looking for a gentle yoga class? Are you finding your regular yoga class a little too strenuous? This class is designed to help students with some physical limitations enjoy a comfortable practice. We will focus on alignment, embodiment, and modifications for those who need them. The class will include classical postures, relaxation techniques, and breath work.

MOVEMENT BREATH MEDITATION- In order to get the most out of our practice, we need to be comfortable and focused. This class will include postures to prepare the body to sit for meditation.  We will also practice pranayama, or breath work to help clear and focus our energy for a 15 minute meditation practice.

PRACTICE FOR POWER AND STRENGTH- Use more muscle engagements in all of your poses.  Even simple poses can become more challenging.  Focus on alignment to challenge your practice.  A simple but not easy class.
