Hatha Yoga – Level 1-2 and Level 1-3
Each class includes a blend of breath awareness, mindfulness, and sequencing developed to provide a certain physical and esoteric opening within the mind and body through practice. These classes not only work on the physical asana or posture, but the energetic system of yoga with a mix of yoga for the seasons (Ayurveda), and exploration of the balance between alignment and play, all done within the lens of yoga therapy. Different areas of focus are rotated through to give a unique and broad experience of yoga.
Therapeutic Specialty Class
This class combines all of the Hatha Level 1-2 aspects with a full sequence. In addition, each week has a specific area of interest and focus that is a common concern for many. Topics include Yoga for Sciatic Pain, Yoga for a Healthy Back, Releasing Tension in the Neck and Shoulders, Knee Health and Alignment, and many more rotating topics with a sequence built around the focus to leave you feeling refreshed and with increased range of motion.
These evening classes are designed to allow you to unwind after your day. Each movement is to be an expression of kindness to your body. Through this gentle movement you will have the opportunity to cultivate mindfulness, connect with your breath, restore the nervous system, and an opportunity to let go of fatigue, stress, and tension through this practice. Releasing tension in hips and shoulders is often addressed in this class.
