An inviting class for the beginning student to learn the basic of yoga practices. Also appropriate for any student who would like to revisit the basic fundamentals of the practice.
This lusciously slow and meditative practice is the yogic prescription for chronic tension, feeling of overwhelm, long term physical imbalance, and exhaustion. It is the perfect compliment to more vigorous yoga styles and a great balancer for high stress living. Through the elegant combination of appropriate asana and gentle timing, Yin Yoga deeply stretches and nourishes the joints of the body, helping to generate much greater flexibility and core level relaxation. The poses and cues will challenge and inspire you. The relaxation is mindful and deep. The practice is designed to bring your Central Nervous System into a resting and restoring mode.
Healing work at the cellular level can occur with digestion, muscle repair, scar tissue production, organ detoxification and emotional processing. Think of it as an efficient way to catch up on all that sleep you missed over the years. Yin Yoga sequences are often linked to Meridian theory, similar to the practice of acupuncture and can help open up and balance the body’s energetic pathway.
This general yoga style utilizes the classical yoga postures and different sequencing depending on the instructor for the purpose of strengthening, opening and cleansing the body. In Hatha-style classes, the poses are held by the practitioner for varying lengths of time (depending on the instructor), unlike in vinyasa style classes where the poses are linked and create a flowing movement from one pose to the next.
Please take note that this general style class is conducted in a unique way by each different instructor. So, Hatha with one teacher might not be the same experience as Hatha with another teacher.
In a hot and humid room, you will start to feel benefits of flowing sequences that detoxify and challenge the body and mind. Emphasis is placed on connecting breath and movement to propel you through the practice.
Our heating system does not use conventional heaters, hot furnace or hot air blowing from air conditioners. So you need not worry about skin damage or drying of skin. Stale air is also not circulated in the FIR heating and you will not end up breathing in microorganisms.
Our Far-infrared heating system is based on heating technology that induces heat internally via our own body core temperature by using the far end of the ultraviolet spectrum which is therapeutically safe to human body, does not dry the skin, and eliminates odor and bacteria hence provide clean heated air. Infrared heat does not pressurize the room which means breathing is easier. The air you take in is not hot but soothing with the right amount of moisture.
Students of all levels are invited to join these classes. Clear instruction is given in breathing technique, warm-up and posture flow. Students will develop body awareness, posture alignment and core strength in basic poses, while experienced students are encouraged to explore advanced variations in familiar postures. Everyone works to his or her own ability and comfort level.
A mindful, soft flow of gentle asanas with attention to breath. Excellent for developing grace, flexibility, core strength, balance, muscular strength and stress reduction. For the beginning student or those searching for a relaxing yoga experience while exploring the details of breath and alignment.
Aerial Yoga teaches coordination and concentration, as the Aerial hammock takes Yoga poses to a new level. It makes usually challenging asanas easier to achieve for those who want to deepen their practice of traditional Yoga. It utilizes the benefits of gravity, core balance and body weight training.
Aerial Yoga is a rewarding and very fun exercise with numerous therapeutic, physiological benefits
Hatha is an easy-to-learn basic form of yoga. Hatha Yoga is the foundation of all Yoga styles. It has become very popular as a source of exercise and stress management. The ideal way to practice Hatha Yoga poses (asanas) is to approach the practice session in a calm, meditative mood. Sit quietly for a few moments, then begin the series, slowly, with control and grace, being inwardly aware as the body performs the various poses selected for the practice session.
Do not overdo the asanas or try to compete with others. Take it easy and enjoy.
A class for those who are seeking to challenge their practice. Intended only for those with a regular vinyasa practice and who are comfortable working towards arm balances and inversions.
These classes presume students are familiar with intermediate yoga postures (including most inversions and backbends). In the classes you will use your knowledge of postures and breathing techniques to practice exciting, physically demanding and challenging sequences and variations.
The pace of these classes is faster and yet you will go deeper into the postures. Your teacher will help you achieve breakthroughs in your practice and your self-awareness. We recommend you have a year of solid Yoga under your mat before you join (Intermediate to Advance) classes. The reward will come for sure and you can expect to be transformed.
So, you’ve mastered the basics, conquered your fear of inverting in the hammock, and no longer freeze when told to hook your knees through the fabric? Awesome! You are probably ready for an intermediate class.
Students will learn how to use the hammock for acrobatic-style balancing while integrating more flips & cirque into their Aerial Yoga practice. This class will challenge you to develop increased strength and flexibility, while you learn to flow through multiple poses without ever stepping your feet down to rest.
Intermediate / Advance Level
A more challenging and vigorous led class with less basic instruction wil be given. The class will be focusing equally on strength and functional mobility, incorporating traditional yoga postures, inversions, and some dynamic movement. A certain amount of familiarity with the practice is required.
Flow / Vinyasa
Not for the fainthearted, these (I-A) classes are geared towards highly advanced students, teachers and freshly teacher training graduates who are seeking an environment to practice at their highest level. Most students at this level already have many years of serious yoga study under their mat.
It is our strong recommendation that you will only take this class if you have an excellent degree of fitness and are regularly practicing the most difficult poses.
