VINYASA FLOW - A flow yoga practice that is a harmonic blend of movement from challenge to rest through dynamic sequencing. The layout of the class is intended to give peace to the mind and space for the physical body. There is an encouragement to make it a personal practice by leaving out poses, adjusting them, or even adding challenges to them. The effectiveness of the practice can be felt by the quality of each pose rather than the number of poses the body is led through. The practice will allow the physical body to gain flexibility and strength as the mind settles.
GENTLE YOGA - A practice to learn the foundation of each pose and be soft with the body. There is an opportunity to explore the physical space as you hold poses for an extended period of time. The practice is slow, gentle, and fluid with the breath. This is a wonderful practice to allow for healing and rejuvenation to take place. There is still physical strengthening with lots of focus on lengthening and creating space in the body.
RESTORATIVE YOGA - A place where you can come to relax the body, relax the mind as the task is to exude as little physical effort as possible. Allowing the body to truly unfold and relax is to allow the body to renew. You will be directed through a handful of poses throughout the entire practice. In each pose, the body will rest in a comfortable position using props, bolsters and or blankets for support. With little to no movement and the attention given to the breath, the body can relieve itself of any tension improving overall well-being, muscle tension, and circulation. This is a space we can truly value less is more.
SUP YOGA - A modern way of practicing yoga. You have the chance to hop onto a paddleboard and test your body's balance. It demands your attention at all times otherwise you just may take a dip in cool waters. Don't let that scare you. The class is serene, playful and yet challenging. Mother Nature determines the conditions on the board whether it be a rocky ride or as smooth as glass. These classes always end with smiles. I look forward to this short season every year!
MAMA & ME YOGA- A practice for the postpartum Mama to integrate yoga back into life with the connection of the new baby. This is an awesome experience to learn how to implement simple yet effective yoga sequencing even with the chaos of day to day life. Yoga is an opportunity to practice presence amongst the diaper changes, nursing sessions and demands of the baby. It is all a part of the practice.
If any movement seems like it might be a little too much for you or your baby, be sure to adjust. If you still feel at all uncomfortable, skip the pose or the sequence. Baby yoga should be more about bonding and connecting rather than focusing on physical changes. It is inevitable you will strengthen as you move your body. Safety always comes first! You can expect to feel more relaxed, muscles lengthened and body strengthened within the sixty-minute practice.
Please note you are responsible for your little(s) who come in to practice.
