Heated Yoga Flow is an energizing, strengthening, and invigorating class. Expect to move and breathe smoothly from one pose to another, building strength, energy and grace and releasing stress in the body. Practiced in a heated room to maximize the healing and detoxifying aspects of the class.
Flow yoga classes tend to be a mixture of meditation, breath-work and energizing movement. They usually begin with gentler movements to warm up the body, then move into progressively more challenging flowing sequences. These may include standing poses, balances, inversions and peak poses. The classes tend to end with slower, deeper stretches, and often floor-based asana practice.
While “yang” yoga focuses on your muscles, Yin yoga targets your deep connective tissues, like your fascia, ligaments, and joints. 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 styles of yoga, Yin yoga helps you 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.
This is an excellent option for seniors, beginners and someone recovering from an injury. Gentle yoga offers the time and opportunity to stretch, strengthen, relax and renew. We will focus on increasing flexibility, balance, and core strength. This type of yoga is called Gentle because a minimal amount of pressure is applied to wrists, shoulders and knees, making it accessible to many people. A good deal of the class is done either seated or stretched out on the yoga mat, and by staying on our backs, we are able to support our spines and work our core muscles deeply and efficiently. Chairs will also be offered for comfortability and for balance.
The atmosphere in Gentle is free of comparison and competition. There is no frustration if a pose is not done perfectly. Postures are approachable in gradual steps, with plenty of time to focus on repetition and breathing. This style of yoga encourages individuals to work at their own pace with ongoing encouragement! This class is designed to help you become aware of your body, how it works individually, while feeling the breath and energy move through it.

Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation also known as “yogic sleep” or “effortless relaxation”. It's usually practiced lying down with a teacher guiding the session.
