Yoga Class Descriptions
Therapeutic yoga adapts the practice of yoga to be suitable for small intimate groups of people with specific and persistent needs. All exercises are modified with props and specific instruction to suit different conditions. This class will contain postural and breathing exercises, deeply based in relaxation and meditation. Classes are intended to support optimal functioning of the joints, muscles and organs, and are designed to help you learn to restore balance, increase vitality and improve your mood.
Hatha yoga brings together the balance of the body with traditional yoga postures that concentrate on alignment, breath, relaxation and the balance of the opposites in the body. This class will contain postures that slowly flow together in alignment, static strength, breath and gentle inversions. This class features hands on adjustments and props to aid alignment of the body so this class is appropriate for all levels including those with injuries.
Yin Yoga is a calming and gentle, slow-paced yoga practice comprised of traditional postures held for long periods of time using support and props. Combined with breathing exercises (Pranayama) to guide and ground the postures, Yin Yoga promotes deep relaxation as well as healthy joint function to facilitate painless movement and increased range of motion. Poses are designed to improve the flow of qi (the body’s natural energy system) in order to strengthen organs, immunity, and emotional well being.
