Vinyasa Flow is a class suitable for all levels of practitioners. It includes an integration warm-up, at least 1-2 series of energizing flows in which breath and movement are linked, and a calming surrender series to cool-down. This is an intuitive flow class sequenced according to the teachers’ creativity.
Core Flow- Heated
Heated Core Flow is a vinyasa flow class with added heat and an emphasis on core-work in every class. This class strengthens, balances and detoxifies your entire body and mind as you move through postures with connected breath. Here we might break down a ‘peak’ posture or a new transition, or simply incorporate a creative flow sequence to engage you both physically and mentally. HCFs are heated with added humidity to warm muscles, prevent over-strain, and encourage detoxification.
Restorative is accessible to all levels and is ideal for restoring the body without physical discomfort, strain or risk of injury. Class will typically involve five or six poses, supported by props, that allow you to increase flexibility from a place of complete relaxation and rest. Poses including light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends. Restorative yoga can relieve pain in the neck/low back/hips, reduce anxiety, help insomnia, improve circulation, and assist in beginning a meditation practice.
Yin is accessible to all levels and can increase flexibility and decrease joint pain by stretching the deep connective tissue that encases all major muscles in the body. 10-15 postures are done per class, primarily seated or supine (reclined), each held for 2-5 minutes. Ideal for athletes, heavy lifters, vinyasa/power practitioners, populations experiencing joint issues, or anyone looking to increase flexibility and decrease stiffness.
“This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy.
Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.”
