Types of Yoga
Hatha Yoga (basic yoga or foundational yoga) is alignment–based movement of the body coordinated with the breath. The pace is slow and poses are held and explored. Great for beginners and is versatile enough for all levels.
Ashtanga Mysore is a group class where students are provided individual instruction. Students can arrive and start their practice any time between the times posted. Great for beginners as well as experienced practitioners.
Ashtanga Led is a one-hour, thirty minute class where students are led through all the poses of the Primary Series using the traditional Sanskrit count. This class is not for beginners.
Aerial Yoga (Ascension–Alignment or Swing Ascension) is yoga that uses the swing, or hammock as a prop. If you are new to this class, arrive about 25 minutes early for an introduction. Not for those with a detached retina, glaucoma, current menstruation, high blood pressure, low blood pressure, pregnant, or have heart problems.
Yin Yoga is a slow–paced style of yoga in which poses are held for five minutes or longer. Promotes flexibility and strengthens the joints by applying moderate stress to the connective tissue while increasing circulation.
Warm Vinyasa Yoga class moves through and between postures on a fast pace in a warm room. No prior yoga experience is necessary, but is helpful. We encourage new students to begin with Hatha Yoga.
Meditation is the practice of turning your attention to a single point of reference. It can involve focusing on the breath, on the body, or on a word or phrase (known as a mantra). A class for all levels of students.
