- Anusara Yoga - Beginner/Intermediate:
This class is designed to empower and refine your awareness
of aligments, and exploring yoga philosophy. A greater emphasis will be placed on building strength, endurance and flexibility
in the body by either moving in a flow or practicing longer holds of poses. The poses are a reflection of your inner
beauty and are initiated from an expression of your heart. This class is intended for those who are looking to expand
their practice gradually or those without previous yoga experience but who are already physically active.
- Restorative Yoga. A slower paced class for people with ongoing health concerns or who
have been inactive for a while. Anyone can benefit from this quieting series of poses. It is wonderful for
persons with physical limitations and health concerns, such as chronic fatigue, high blood pressure, migraine,
fibromyalgia, MS, menopause, It’s also great when recovering from an illness or from jet-lag. In this class, the body is placed
onto blankets and bolsters into the shape of many classic yoga poses, such as forward bends, backbends, twists and shoulderstands.
Absolutely no effort is exerted; instead body and mind rest as in savasana, the deep relaxation pose, which is usually at
the end of a yoga practice. This affords passive stretches throughout the body and has many of the benefits of
their classic counterparts, with the exception of strength. Yet, a tremendous stress reduction is experienced
as the body relaxes, blood circulation is enhanced, and the mind becomes quiet.
