We’re excited to announce some new additions to our class schedule, as well as a couple of changes to some existing classes, all beginning this fall!
Sunday Self Awakening Yoga is now Gentle Yoga!
The foundation of our Gentle Yoga class focuses on asana, pranayama and meditation relaxation: three of the 8 limbs of yoga, which when woven together into a single practice, help to cleanse and nourish the body. Gentle Yoga provides us with the opportunity to slow down and modify our movements using simple techniques that enhance the free flow of prana to promote physical and emotional healing and self-discovery. The student is guided through gentle asanas, breathing techniques, as well as simple range of motion movements that target the major joints, allowing the body to release inefficient, painful patterns and to access unknown potentials. This class acknowledges the belief that there is a yoga practice for everyone and with proper guidance, we will see changes in our body, mind and spirit. There will be floor work in this class. Class is still from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m.
NEW Flow and Yin on Monday afternoons, 11:45 to 12:45, with Marva Kumpf!
Flow & Yin class brings the best of two worlds together, creating an amazingly transformative experience. The first portion of this class incorporates a challenging vinyasa-based flow to build strength, stamina and balance. You will certainly build up a sweat before transitioning to the yin poses to close the practice. The Yin portion of this practice is a more meditative approach to yoga, focusing on flexibility and mindfulness. Here you will be holding poses for longer periods of time, targeting the connective tissues of the body to help release deeply stored stress and tension. All levels welcome.
NEW Mixed Level on Wednesday evenings, 4:45 to 5:45 p.m.
We’ve added a second occurrence of our popular Monday evening Mixed Level class to our schedule! We hope you’ll be able to join us this fall on Wednesdays as well, with Sona Hussian and Lauren Rivers! This class emphasizes refining and building endurance in standing and seated postures. In these classes you will use your knowledge of postures and breathing to practice exciting, physically demanding and challenging sequences and variations.
