Power Vinyasa (Tuesdays)
Restorative Yoga (Thursdays)
Power Vinyasa is a dynamic and energetic Vinyasa class that synchronizes breath with movement and intension. Vinyasa is a unique style of yoga where postures are linked together in a continuous, challenging and creative flow that combines strength, flexibility and balance while toning the body and clearing the mind. Students are encouraged to follow their breath to set the pace and to listen to their body as they explore their own edge and discover inner strength. These classes are high energy set to upbeat, thoughtful music.
Yoga can work for many different types of bodies, many different stages in life, and for each person’s many different moods. While for some a Power Yoga class may seem like the way to go, for others a gentle restorative class may be optimal. For some people their needs change daily. However, the restorative effects of yoga should never be over-looked, no matter what age, and sometimes slowing down the practice, going deeper in poses, and just feeling the restorative power of them does wonders for the body.
Restorative Yoga focuses on relaxing the body in restful postures. Rest provides the body an opportunity to renew and heal. Look at restorative yoga poses as “active relaxation.” By supporting the body with props such as blocks, straps and bolsters, we alternately stimulate and relax the body to move toward balance. This style of yoga provides a time for BEING instead of DOING. This class is a practice of actively cultivating the attitude of letting go and will help teach you to learn how to deeply relax.Join us Thursday nights for a one hour restorative yoga practice that will also incorporate breath-work, soft-soothing music, and dim lighting.
