Yoga 1 – This is a great class to start with if you’re new to yoga.
This class is designed around foundational principles of yoga, including finding safe alignment in poses, learning the feeling of a posture, exploring the use of props to change and enhance your practice, noticing and controlling the patterns of your breath, and calming the mind. Poses are typically all on the floor, without standing poses.
This class expands on the foundational principles of yoga. Standing and balance poses are introduced here, as well as Downward Facing Dog.
This class focuses on building strength & mobility, breath awareness, body alignment, and honoring oneself. We will work on breath expansion, breath-initiated movements, self-pacing and function over form. We slowly build poses from the ground up and from the inside out at the pace of your breath. This class incorporates standing and balance poses.
Yoga 3 – Previous yoga experience recommended.
We’ll use the breath-initiated functional movements we’ve worked on in Yoga 1 and Yoga 2 to create strength & flexibility while building up heat in the body and getting the blood pumping. This class typically includes Sun Salutations – a series of poses that fluidly chain together and flow from standing to laying on the belly and back up – pacing varies.
Freestyle – Requests encouraged. Something bugging you physically? Let’s talk about it! Using tools to create more stability and mobility in the body, we’ll work on the needs of everyone attending on any particular day. Sequence of class is determined based on requests at the beginning of class. Level of difficulty varies from 1 through 2.
