Beginners / Gentle (Tues. & Wed. class)
Designed to introduce students to yoga through slow and gentle stretches and movements. Repetition is key here as we start to lay the foundation for an open body and calmer mind. Better breathing and increased awareness are emphasized. Also ideal for those coming back to yoga or working with limitations.
Tuesday Gentle/ Posture
Gentle with a little bit of challenge. Start your day off right by awakening the body with slow, mindful movements to improve flexibility and poses that help build strength and enhance mental focus. This class focuses on the muscles that help support our posture creating both the stability and mobility we need to age gracefully. Standing poses, core work and balancing are all incorporated into this practice.
Gentle Floor-Based Stretches
An ideal practice to increase flexibility and range of motion.This gentle style class consists of slow, mindful movements and floor-based stretches. Through slightly longer holds the body gets a chance to relax as the muscles lengthen and connective tissue is nourished and hydrated. *Minimal weight bearing.
Sunday Vinyasa Flow
A fun, well-rounded, flow style practice that starts slow, builds to a peak and then ends nice and slow with calming stretches. Unique sequencing, exploratory movements and arm balances add challenge and playfulness. Students are regularly reminded to listen to their own bodies and adapt, modify, omit or rest as needed. Practice always culminates with Savasana, deep relaxation, to absorb the practice and integrate the "information" for body, mind and spirit.
