Vinyasa Yoga for all levels: This stylized class‚ that involves incremental sequences of postures‚ supports all levels of physical abilities. Whether you are new to the practice‚ a returning practitioner‚ or seasoned yogi‚ you will always be able to explore and move as deeply into the physical postures as much as you desire‚ while keeping good alignment for safety. Multiple variations on each posture and different options given‚ allow you to challenge‚ or go as gentle as needed‚ from practice to practice. Other aspects of yoga‚ such as breathing techniques‚ mantra‚ meditation‚ and mudra are also added at times.
Vinyasa Level II/III: A class for those who have been practicing yoga for at least 9 months or more on a regular basis. Those wishing to deepen their practice‚ become stronger‚ and experience more advanced levels of physical postures. In this class‚ inversions, arm balances‚ and many other intermediate and advanced level asana are explored and integrated into flowing connections with breath and body‚ while keeping deep centering intentions alive.
Gentle Yoga: This specifically designed class is perfect for everyone! Whether you are nursing an injury‚ brand new to Yoga‚ have a specific condition‚ or just want to slow down, this is the class for you. Exploring breath‚ gentle movements and supportive postures‚ and always receiving a blissful relaxation at the end‚ Gentle Yoga practice is restorative and renewing on many levels. Pregnant woman are invited to all my Gentle Yoga classes.
Prana Yoga: A specific style of yoga in which I received a 200 Hour teachers training certificate‚ is based on the system of the chakra. Chakras are the ‘wheels’ of energy within the body that contain the vital life force‚ Prana. These wheels of life energy correlate to physical aspects‚ energetic‚ and emotional aspects within all of us. In Prana yoga‚ use of the sounds of these wheels of life were designed for you to experience what is present within. From this experience‚ you can begin to create balance and start the healing transformation for your self and for others.
Sound familiar? You run in‚ almost forgetting to take off your shoes. Luckily you at least remembered to pack your pants for class‚ but unfortunately you can’t be as sure about turning off the coffeepot this morning. Things have been like a roller coaster lately. You feel fatigued‚ tired‚ drained‚ and want to just drop it all and fly to some exotic land! But‚ that would be the easy‚ yet expensive way out‚ and you know upon your arrival back home‚ nothing would have really changed.
So‚ here you are in yoga class! Finally in a calm and comfortable environment. You get to decompress and let go for a while. No bags to carry‚ no phone to answer‚ and nothing required other than becoming fully aware of your Self.
The fist thing you do is breathe. Try it now, take three long‚ luxurious breaths and breath out slowly. What did you experience? This time taken for practice becomes an oasis when you come to my yoga classes, no matter the style I am teaching. It is meant to bring you home again, back to that place we all possess deep within ourselves; peace. This peace and alignment that reminds you of your goodness and abilities, is what I wish for you. To use the practice and science of yoga, I wish for you to discover a deeper connection to your body, mind, breath, and heart!
Each week you will experience something different in my classes. Whether it is a new posture‚ breathing technique‚ philosophy‚ quote‚ or challenge (this can be more than just a physical challenge!)‚ the use of these aspects and more‚ are meant to support you no matter who‚ what‚ or where you are in your life right now. (See my blog for some great examples!) I look forward to seeing you in class and am honored to be in the journey of life with you!
