YIN-yasa

This class is a combination of yin and yang. This practice begins with a slower-paced vinyasa flow to cultivate heat in the body. This heat helps prepare the body for the second more cooling half of the class. Which focuses on long, deep stretches in the yin style, holding poses for 2-5 minutes.

Gentle YIN-yasa

This yoga class combines an active (yang) portion and a passive (yin) portion. The yang portion of the class will involve some strengthening and standing postures to build some heat within the body. The yin portion will involve more floor postures, aimed at longer holds working on flexibility and mobility. The class will incorporate a gentle flowing aspect between postures, emphasizing slow, mindful movement with breath. This type of meditative practice is meant to calm the nervous system and create relaxation in the body and mind. This is an appropriate class for beginners to yoga, as well as more experienced practitioners wanting to slow their practice down. 

Slow Flow and Restore

Beginning the class with a meditation and slow mindful movements as we awaken our bodies, followed by slow flowing gentle hatha and ending the last half of our practice with restorative poses. Just enough slow, juicy movements to warm the body before an intentional series of long, nourishing holds.
