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.

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.

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.

Mello Aerial- 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 

Om aerial Yoga same as above

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.

 

Core Concepts - 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.

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.

 

 

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.

 

Chair Yoga- This is a therapeutic yoga class that improves your range of motion, releases stress, and leaves your body feeling relaxed, and rejuvenated. Traditional yoga poses included stretches, balancing exercises and strengthening exercises are done using the chair. This class will end with a guided meditation to take your body and mind to a more peaceful state of relaxation. This class is for beginning exercisers as well as those who are looking for a lower impact workout. This class is easy to follow and instructors will offer modifications to meet your specific exercise goals. Modifications may include higher or lower intensity options or alternative moves.
