Deep Stretch: In Vinyasa yoga, we often move at the speed of "One Breath, One Movement." Because it's so fast paced, flexibility doesn't come as quickly as it would with other styles. In order to reach deep to the muscles fibers while stretching, a stretch must be held for a minimum of 20 seconds. For change to begin and flexibility to be increased, you need to hold that stretch for at least 10 seconds more; a total of one minute or more being ideal. So we created this class to help round out yogi's practices as well as encourage their muscles to lengthen faster so different postures during vinyasa classes can be practiced more intensely. The pace is slow; we only explore about 15 poses each class. With the style of Yin in mind, we never stand during this class. Appropriate for all levels.
Foundations & Flow: Build a strong foundation for your yoga practice as a new or seasoned student here. Proper and in-depth explanation of form, alignment as well as names for key poses of yoga are taught at a slower pace at first then increasingly faster throughout the class to prepare you for more advanced Vinyasa/Flow classes. Exploring around 30 poses per class, as opposed to 50+, this is a great place to start your practice or refresh it for better flexibility, relaxation, balance, focus, self-awareness and self-empowerment.
Vox Vinyasa: An upbeat, faster paced Vinyasa/Flow class directed towards strength and endurance building as well as stability training for balance specifically designed to reduce anxiety and stress. Often moving your body to the pace of One Breath, One Movement to increase focus and ultimately still the mind. Be prepared to sweat as well as see results faster in both your body and mind. Appropriate for all levels; though beginners may find themselves struggling to keep up.
PiYO: This is a fun, core strength challenging class fusing Pilates and Yoga. Combining repetitive Mat Pilates movements with the static holds of Yoga, you’ll burn calories and melt away unwanted fat while toning muscles, working on balance and getting a great stretch, too! Just like our other classes, this is choreographed differently each time. PiYO is always fresh and new to keep the body guessing. Appropriate for all levels.
