Beyond Basics explores the breath and a wide range of yoga postures. This is a transformative class that will allow you to take the basics of Yoga and go slowly and safely to practice more challenging poses and sequences. Experience helpful, but all levels are welcome to this class.
Yin, or Taoist Yoga, focuses on the more Yin parts of the body which are the bones, ligaments and connective tissues, particularly those that make up and support our center core in the pelvis and low back. The postures are held for long periods, usually 5 minutes, with acceptance and ease, allowing deep release.
Pranayama (breath and energy expansion) techniques, asana (postural), and meditation techniques will be blended to create a setting for deep introspection and awareness.
This class is ideal for learning stress relief methods, for balancing energy, and for overall health. A flow of postures and variations of Sun Salutations will be offered to warm and energize the body, moving from standing and balancing poses to seated poses, and ending with a supine meditation.
Yoga Night is for you to tune into your sadhana. The 90-minute class will be a mix of yoga styles such as yin, vinyasa flow, and restorative. You will be given the time and encouragement to explore what each asana has to offer you. All levels (including beginners!) welcome.
