Class Descriptions

GENTLE HATHA YOGA
Monday, Thursday & Saturday 10:00 am – 11:00 am, $6.00
A Hatha Yoga class that is relatively gentle, slow and great for beginners or students who prefer a more relaxed style. As this class develops it is able to be custom-tailored to the group’s needs in the spirit of traditional yoga where asanas (poses) were ‘prescribed’ for various conditions (ie, back pain, tight shoulders, and a multitude of other aliments / afflictions.) … Hence, the more you attend practice — and provide feedback — the more supportive and deep the practice will become!

ASHTANGA SHORT FORM
Wednesday & Friday
10:00 am – 11:00 am, $6.00

This is an active 60 minute class, structured on the main poses from Primary Series (see description below.) Focus is on the breath. Poses are held for five breaths and are interconnected with flowing movements. The same sequence is repeated each class, building strength, flexibility and focus… so that eventually your practice becomes a powerful moving meditation! This class is open to beginners, but is not a “gentle” type of yoga.

The beauty of Ashtanga is that there is always “room to grow”… there is no need to be intimidated, and there is no competition. You may find you choose to rest during some poses, and modifications are encouraged when needed.

YOGA NIDRA (Guided Meditation)
Currently not scheduled
This is a NON-PHYSICAL type of yoga.

While resting comfortably, you are guided on a specific journey (which includes rotation of consciousness around the body, connection with breath, and archetypal visualization) that produces profound and proven results. The meditations are crafted to stimulate different areas of the brain while inducing complete physical relaxation.

Wear comfortable clothes. Pillows and blankets will be provided.
