Whether you are young or old, overweight or thin, yoga has the power to calm the mind and strengthen the body. Yoga’s origins come from a drive for self understanding, physical and emotional release and total well being. Yoga increases flexibility, muscle strength, tone, balance and cardio health all without the threat of injury. Yoga is done in bare feet on a yoga mat. Wear clothes that can stretch and allow you to move around easily. In beginning yoga, we focus on learning the correct way to do the poses, holding them longer and taking things at a slow pace. If you are just starting yoga this is a great class to begin with.
Hatha classes build flexibility and strength while minimizing the chance of injury. This well-rounded style balances and opens the body. Hatha classes move a little slower and give you a chance to really get into the pose. If you want to experience a gentle, more nuanced practice, this is a good option.
Vinyasa Yoga is a flowing, dynamic sequence of poses and is one of the most popular styles of yoga. The fluid, almost dance-like movements increase flexibility, strength, and stamina, as it calms and improves overall health.
Restorative yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. This type of yoga prioritizes stillness, relaxation, and calm, even more so than more traditional forms of yoga. By incorporating props like yoga blocks, bolsters, blankets, and straps to support and align the body, restorative poses allow the body to fully relax in each posture.
