Flow (Vinyasa) is a sequence of movements, in which the postures and breath are inter-connected. In this slow flow class, some of the poses are held for several breath cycles to refine the posture of the body, mind and heart. Classical yoga poses are taught, along with variations and a few “twists”, to help keep the mind attentive and the body and mind interested. In each class, we will practice being present, strengthen and stretch the muscles of the skeletal, respiratory and cardiovascular systems and cultivate the strength, flexibility and resilience of the mind, body and spirit.
Yin yoga is a meditative deep stretch practice of long-held postures(mostly seated). It is appropriate for beginners and seasoned yogis alike. It can be a stand alone practice or is great to compliment the more Yang(vinyasa or flow) style of yoga . We hold each posture for 1 - 5 minutes using props to help support and reach the deeper connective tissues. This class assists the body in becoming more flexible and energizing the organ meridians. Most postures target the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and spine.
