Restorative Yoga

Restorative yoga is appropriate for all levels of practitioner. In this class we utilize props in most poses to support the body as we bend, twist and stretch. The more supported our body becomes the more our body’s healing mechanisms can work. This creates balance and increased health throughout the systems of the body. Poses may be held for a single breath or for up to 15 minutes. Breathing practices, meditation, sound healing may be incorporated into class.

Intro-Mediate Flow

Breathe, Balance and Be well. These words sum of the goal of this class. We want your practice to last a lifetime but also improve how you feel in your body today. In this class we take time exploring proper 3 part breathing, safe alignment and how to maximize the health benefits gained from a regular yoga practice. This is intro to intermediate level flow class so that different levels of practitioners can all enjoy their practice together.

Inter-Mediate flow

How comfortably we move through space begins with the body’s relationship to gravity. We cannot find strength within one movement, without flexibility in another. When there is balance between strength and flexibility we can begin to move gracefully. 

A steady practice of Yoga asana, pranayama and meditation can improve the integration of all of these systems, and introduce us to graceful, dynamic movement.  Whether flowing as softly as a dancer, or moving as explosively as a sprinter, this class will help you cultivate strength, flexibility, balance and grace in all your actions. Brand new yogis are encouraged to avoid this class until they have the foundational principals down. 

Kids Yoga Ages 7-12

Yoga helps children to develop body awareness, learn how to use their bodies in a healthy way, manage stress through breathing, awareness, meditation and healthy movement, build concentration, increase their confidence and positive self-image, and feel part of a healthy, non-competitive group - most importantly - kids will have fun!

Things we will be covering in this class:

1-Learning about the para sympathetic and sympathetic nervous system and how they affect you.

2-Breathing to help reduce anxiety.

3-Long term depression and anxiety can be reduced or even relieved through specific poses. We will go over those specific poses and practice them.

4-We will learn to move safety between, "flow" poses  and restorative poses and the benefits of each.

This class is designed to be supportive and nurturing.If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us directly at 661-374-8693.
