Lessons to Live By
Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga is a physical practice that focuses on Tristhana, or “three places of action or attention”.
The three aspect of Tristhana are pranayama “breathing system”, asana “posture”, and drishti “looking place”.
In our Vinyasa flow classes we will guide you through an energetic sequence of movement that will teach you how to combine your breath, posture, and your gaze to help build strength, flexibility, and balance.
Hatha yoga is a practice that leads to harmonizing the masculine and feminine energies in the body, and includes a combination of mantra (chanting), asana (physical postures), pranayama (breathwork), and dhyana (meditation). Our Hatha class features a slower flow with poses that are held longer, to help coordinate breath with movement. Hatha, which translates to sun (ha) and moon (tha), is intended to help the student use the physical practice to achieve a deep spiritual and mindful understanding of the behavioral aspects of the yoga practice - bringing increased vitality, awareness, and love.
YIN / RESTORATIVE
Yin yoga, in contrast to most styles, focuses on the disengagement of the body. Truly restorative, this passive practice uses long held postures to achieve a deeper level of flexibility, and lets the student turn towards inward meditation. Yin yoga is a excellent opportunity for recovery, for the student seeking to detach from a manic schedule and tune into their emotions, or the athlete needing physical release of lactic acid and prevention of injury.
POWER FLOW / SCULPT
Vigorous and revitalizing, our Power Flow class is a combination of Vinyasa and Hatha yoga, usually taught in a heated temperature setting. Designed for all fitness levels, this class is intended to make you sweat and sculpt the body. Each class is unique; geared towards strength conditioning, endurance, and aligning your breathing. You will leave class elevated and having accessed a deep reservoir of energy.
