Yoga Class Descriptions:

Yoga - Explore your body and mind with yoga postures, breath and meditation. Emphasis is on alignment and self awareness for a safe practice. Develop and maintain strength, flexibility and balance for health and well being Focus on the classic poses, building on the basics with emphasis on alignment of the standing, sitting, and twisting poses. Detailed instruction will help you achieve a deeper reflection in asana and refine your relationship to your body with options to remain at one level or increase to the next.

 

Yin Yoga- While “yang” yoga focuses on your muscles, yin yoga targets your deep connective tissues, like your fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. It’s slower and more meditative, giving you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body. Because you’re holding poses for a longer period of time than you would in other traditional types of yoga, yin yoga helps you stretch and lengthen those rarely-used tissues while also teaching you how to breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts.
The practice of yin yoga is based on ancient Chinese philosophies and Taoist principles which believe there are pathways of Qi (energy) that run through our bodies. By stretching and deepening into poses, we’re opening up any blockages and releasing that energy to flow freely. We may also access Ayurvedic marma points in our practice. A yin yoga sequence has a very similar effect on our energies as an acupuncture treatment. By holding the various poses, a yin yoga sequence can help restore the healthy flow of Qi in our bodies.
Here, the goal isn’t to move through postures freely--postures could be held for three to five minutes, or even 20 minutes at a time. A yin practitioner is trying to access the deeper tissues, and many of the postures focus on areas that encompass a joint (such as the hips, sacrum, and spine, to name a few).

Restorative Yoga - is a gentle and meditative style of Yoga that uses props to support the body to deepen the benefits of the poses. It is a relaxing and restful practice that creates specific physiological responses that are beneficial to health and can reduce the effects of stress. It is a wonderful adjunct to an active yoga practice. It can also be a great first class for a beginner or for those recovering from injury or illness. Restorative Yoga brings harmony to the body’s rhythms. It brings you to a state of “being,” not “doing,” while there is no movement, no effort, and the brain becomes quiet. Props are used to place the body in comfortable, relaxing poses. This enables the mind to clear, the breath to deepen, and the body to easily relax into balance. Restorative Yoga is the practice of deliberate stillness. This is when the healing begins.

Beginner Aerial- This is a conditioning class. This class will teach you the basics of using and inverting in the silks, re-aligning the spine. Attention to detail, building muscle, safety, and alignment will be the focus for this class. Every basic inversion will be covered, along with plenty of standing poses and sitting poses using the silk as a prop. Each class will have at least 1 inversion, that might change from week to week. The hammock is also used to go deeper into stretches that are not accessed in a regular yoga class. Aerial Hammock yoga uses techniques from Yoga, pilates, and calisthenics to build your core. Each class ends in shavasana (a meditation), surrounded in fabric, and is wonderfully relaxing. This class will prepare you for Julie Lang's Aerial yoga class

Yin-Restore Aerial Yoga- is a unique fusion developed by Muktadevi Leyna Love, using Thai yoga assists, gentle harmonics, traction, compression and release for optimal nervous system balancing, chi energy movement, and relaxation. This practice has lasting and rapid success in healing body tension, illness and disease (fibromyalgia, crohn's, colitis) through this powerful healing modality. Each teacher will have their own twist on this wonderful aerial class 

SUP Yoga Board Yoga- How does it work? These simulated SUP yoga classes are practiced in the studio (without a drop of water in sight) on a base-mounted yogaboard . While you may not get the full SUP experience, what with being indoors and all, you’ll still be able to reap the benefits Practicing yoga poses on your board, outside of the water, is still excellent exercise: These poses are great for increasing flexibility, improving full-body strength (especially the core), and helping you to find your OM no matter what surface you’re on.

This class allows you to find your focus prior to hitting the water. So, before you strike your warrior pose on the water, you can first get acquainted with a board and find stability and balance in the studio.
While it may not look that difficult (or at least seem easier than surfing), it’s actually an excellent workout that challenges your core, balance, and focus.

SUP yoga is the wondrous love child of stand up paddle boarding and yoga. It gets you off your mat, on a board, and into a new space—both mentally and physically—taking the challenges of yoga to another level. No longer land-bound, this form of yoga invigorates the senses and your body all at once as you learn to find your center and move with the motions of the "water" beneath you. It also demands balance and concentration.

As with all of Cheryl's Yoga Classes you will be blessed with a sound bath, heated sand bags, heated stones and a lavender wash cloth for your eyes at the end of class.

 

Kids Yoga/Mommy and Me Yoga - Yoga for kids can help build confidence, body awareness, and a focus on the breath as a tool for centering. A kids class typically features stories, partner dynamics, animal sounds and laughter. Enjoy learning yoga sequences to share at home, having fun, breathing and or meditation exercises and reading books.

Kids Aerial Yoga- Aerial yoga gives children the feeling of safe, weightless flight. Participation in an aerial yoga class has a wide range of benefits for children of all ages. Cognitive, neurological, motor, and developmental benefits wil be accomplished. There are multiple therapeutic and sensory benefits associated with aerial yoga.   Aerial yoga is fun and at the same time they are strengthening all aspects of their health. Yoga in the aerial hammocks is a great tool to regulate the central nervous system, increase body awareness, and while self-regulating their behavior, children become aware of their own social and emotional needs.

Aerial Play Yoga- Adult class. Come and practice the poses you know with a teacher that can help you move along in your abiities and spot you during your practice.

Early Morning Flow-  Mindfully transitioning asanas meant to release stress and build body-mind-spirit awareness. An exploratory warm-up is followed by flowing asanas that dive deep into your embodied experience. We will be holding postures that cover the entire body, and focusing on the breath which will help to create a supple and toned body. Postures are linked together in a continuous, challenging and creative flow that combines strength and flexibility while toning the body and clearing the mind.   Students are encouraged to move at their own pace with intention and to listen to their body as they explore their own edge and discover inner strength. This is an all levels class, appropriate for beginners and those new to yoga.

Gentle Yoga– Suitable for beginning students as well as experienced students who enjoy a gentler class. Learn how to sequence breath and movements, and become familiar with the connection to your physical and energetic body .Gentle classes are great for everyone! And a perfect introduction to yoga. Included are foundational poses, modifications, use of props, emphasis on breath, and some yogic philosophy. The goal is to move away from the busy, fast pace of our lives into a practice that is slow paced, mindful and conscious, and receive the abundant benefits of yoga.Power Yoga- Dynamic and rigorous vinyasa flow class linking one pose to the next continuously through breath and movement. With a cardiovascular element, these classes offer a challenge to intermediate to advanced students who have an understanding of the basics and are ready to deepen their practice. Students will be challenged with poses requiring greater strength, flexibility, stamina and focus. We try to add at least one Fun Balance posture in each class.

Svroopa Yoga - this class starts with a guided awareness, breathing techniques, the poses, and then another guided awareness to notice changes. the themes are Daily Practice, Lower Spinal Release and Upper Spinal Release. The Daily Practice is a sequence of poses that can be easily remembered for a home practice. The lower spinal release focuses on poses that are predictable and reliable for lower spine that extends through the whole body. and the Upper Spinal Release Theme poses identify and open the areas of the upper spine that are tight, opening the whole spine but focusing on the verterbrae behind the heart through the ribcage and neck.

Aerial Yoga-  Incorporates postures from floor-based practices. Can cater to Hatha, Vinyasa, Power, and Restorative yoga styles. Introduces and expands ways a suspended aerial hammock can assist floor-based yoga postures. Emphasis is placed on deep stretching, decompression of the spine, core engagement, strengthening, and inverting safely.

Power Yoga- As the name suggests, power yoga is focused on building strength and endurance. It is also an excellent form of yoga for burning calories.
Power yoga is a form of Vinyasa, which has its roots in Ashtanga yoga, an established practice that began in the early 20th century.
With power yoga, the emphasis is on the flow from one pose to the next, rather than approaching each pose separately. The poses aren’t disconnected from each other, unlike some other forms of yoga.
No matter what you call it, power yoga is a fast-paced and intense activity. You move from one posture to another rapidly, linking your breathing to the different motions of your body.
A power yoga class may seem more like an aerobics class than a relaxed, mindful yoga experience. Though it requires mindfulness and focus on your breathing, power yoga is more dynamic than meditative.
As with every class with Cheryl there will be a 10-minute Shavasana finishing with a singing bowl serenade.
