Class Descriptions

 

Long & Lean ~ A fusion of pilates and yoga stretching.
This class targets the smaller muscles that support your larger muscles which is crucial for joint stability. Core strength not only makes you appear taller, it keeps you safer during daily activities. With tiny motions, increased reps, intentional squeezes and pulses are designed to completely fatigue muscles to failure. After the intense isometric movements, you will finish the class off with the stretching segment. You will go through a series of lengthening movements that will take those muscle from a working, contracted state to a relaxed stretched position helping you achieve the long and lean physique you are looking for.

All Levels Yoga ~ Vinyasa flow is a combination of poses synchronized with breath, which creates an energizing flow that is rhythmic. It is a physically vigorous style of yoga that flows from pose to pose led by breath. Each practice is unique as it blends the standing poses, balancing poses, backward and forward bends in creative sequences. Students of all levels welcome.

Slow Yoga ~This class allows each student to flow thru a series of moderately challenging poses. Each series has been created to work thru lines in the body building strength, flexibility, and breaking thru energy stagnation. Suitable for all levels.

Restorative Yoga ~ Rest is different than sleep. Rest provides the body an opportunity to renew and heal. Restorative yoga postures are held longer, designed to lubricate the joints and deeply stretch the body’s connective tissues, especially in the hips, pelvis and lower spine. This is a therapeutic style of yoga that uses props for comfort, stability and balance. Calming, restorative yoga poses and breathing practices activate your parasympathetic nervous system, which can help you better handle stress and invoke feelings of deep relaxation. In this class poses are held for longer periods of time, making the muscles a little longer and stronger. This class is great for seniors, people suffering with injuries, and those newer to yoga.

Deep Stretch ~ This class will provide students with relaxing and rejuvenating exercises for flexibility. Slow-Deep-Stretch emphasizes flexibility in the major muscles as well as those surrounding the primary joints. Emphasis is placed on the breath to open space through the body and relieve physical and mental tension. A regular stretch class  can enhance flexibility, ease chronic pain and muscle soreness and its meditative quality can help achieve a state of calm similar to that found in restorative yoga.

Yoga/Restore ~Find your balance in this energizing and mellow yoga class. We will start this class with a strength and flexibility building invigorating flow and then transition into a more restorative approach to calm the body and mind. The combination of flow and restorative yoga is a perfect end to your workweek, allowing you to balance your practice. Restorative yoga is designed to help release tension, stretch muscles, calm down, and detoxify from over stimulation in a fast-paced world.
