Sunset Yoga Monday 6 p.m.
delve into the myriad benefits of yoga practice through basic pranayama
(breathing practices); yoga sequences emphasizing alignment, breathing,
and conscious movement; and reflection on yoga philosophy as it applies
in our practice and in our daily lives. We strive to make each class a
well-rounded session that leaves every participant feeling relaxed,
renewed, and well-nourished in body, mind, and spirit. Moderate
intensity; some knowledge of yoga helpful but not required. This summer we are winding our way through a light overview of The Yoga Sutras.
Gentle Flow Yoga Tuesday and Friday 9 a.m.
Introductory level class, allowing for growth & variations as your personal practice progresses. Class focuses primarily on gaining familiarity with, and basic principles of alignment in, common yoga poses. Variations & options are offered & demonstrated to make traditional poses accessible to practitioners who are healing or have special considerations for their practice. Class includes mindfulness practices, yogic philosophy, & meditation for stress reduction. No prior yoga experience necessary.
Restorative Yoga Tuesday 6:30 p.m.
Each class starts with a self-massage using various-sized therapy balls to release the soft
tissue. This allows you to completely relax & rest in the Restorative Yoga
poses that follow. A class involves 3 to 5 poses, supported by props to hold the
poses for 5 minutes or longer. By practicing stillness you will recharge
mentally & physically.
Yoga Nidra Wednesday 6 p.m.
Yoga nidra is a conscious relaxation & meditation technique. Unlike traditional asana- or movement-based practice, yoga nidra is more like an extension of savasana, or corpse pose, wherein students lie on the mat for rest & integration. The teacher guides students to transition from the busyness of everyday life into their inner senses & into a relaxed, subconscious state of mind. Breathing & mindfulness techniques including visualizations, affirmations, & guided imagery can help dissolve limiting beliefs & allow practitioners to feel lighter & more peaceful. This is a very quiet, contemplative, soothing practice.
Vinyasa Flow 2.0 Thursday 6 p.m.
If you are ready to venture beyond Gentle Vinyasa Flow, join us on Thursday evenings this summer. Although primarily an asana class (poses/physical practice), participants will explore all 8 Limbs of Yoga expanding their understanding & knowledge of Yogic philosophy. We will explore ethics, meditation, breath-work, the concept of the Energy Body & the relationship of these concepts to overall health. Participants can expect the physical practice to be more challenging & instruction to be more subtle than in a Gentle Vinyasa class. Familiarity with common pose names is suggested as we work toward more fluid transitioning in Sun Salutations & introduce variations to the traditional sequence. Most classes can be adapted to chair or wall variations. Each class includes brief discussion & extended Savasana or Yoga Nidra (final relaxation).
Saturday Morning Yoga Saturday 10 a.m.
This class is designed to develop self-awareness through a variety of classical yoga poses & practices. We focus on strength, balance, and
flexibility, within a framework of mental & emotional equanimity. Class begins with a brief
meditation period and readings from yoga and other spiritual texts that
encourage us to take our practice from the mat into the world. All levels welcome.
