Yin Yoga (75 min)
A Yin yoga class usually consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body – the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues. The poses are held for up to five minutes, sometimes longer. The yin poses, therefore, are passive and performed while seated or in a reclining position. The poses are held with the muscles fully relaxed, allowing time and gravity to deepen the stretch and target the fascia and the Chinese meridians. The time spent holding these asanas is similar to meditation.
Healthy Back Yoga Wall Level 1 (75 min)
This class is catered towards those with limited mobility or new to physical exercise or yoga. Postures are performed on the floor or with wall support as needed. The goal of this class is to reduce pain and improve back health through core strength, balance, flexibility and understanding proper alignment cues. Participants will still reap the health benefits of yoga in a low impact format.
Pure Restorative (60 min)
In this class, props are used to create positions of ease and comfort that facilitate relaxation and health. Bolsters, blankets, blocks and the yoga chair are used to adapt each student’s body to the shape of the yoga posture. This healing practice is meditative in nature allowing the mind to slow down and the nervous system to calm. This practice is about opening and creating space, not stretching. If you are pregnant, have movement restrictions, are anxious, have PTSD, or live in today’s modern world (and yes!, the list goes on), this class is for you!
