Alignment-based yoga, emphasizing precise bio-mechanical alignment and actions. The pace of the class can be moderate to advanced (ie holding poses longer than in a vinyasa class), and can include some vinyasa, but alignment will be emphasized.
Vinyasa is a system of yoga in which the breath is coordinated with the movement and the movements or postures are linked together in a continuous flow. The system is known for it’s strong yet fluid approach to yoga, in which strength, agility and flexibility are developed with continued practice. The Vinyasa II-III classes invite intermediate/advanced practitioners to engage with their practice with deeper level of conscious embodiment. Advanced poses may be on the offered, but not necessarily.
Mindful yoga is a meditation of motion and stillness that runs counter to our busy, scattered, fast paced, and anxious modern culture. It is a truly integrated mind body practice that trains patience, steadiness focus and acceptance. In mindfulness yoga we consciously connect to the physical experience of body and breath as a focus to train our awareness to be stable, calm, genuine, and present. We practice making peace with our body, our emotions, and our thoughts. We learn to make peace with, and tame our inner restlessness and anxiety so that we can experience genuine natural presence in the moment. We practice resting in the long burning intensity of poses, learning to experience everything that happens peacefully and openly without judgement or interpretation. With patience, willingness and careful practice this style of yoga can integrate us with our experience of the present moment so that we can truly be a clear, beneficial presence in the world.
Yin Yoga is the practice of letting go. It is inspired by gentleness and designed to bypass the muscular tissue and target the connective tissues: ligaments, tendons, and fascia, to improve flexibility and increase circulation in the joints. Balance the yang lifestyle of going going going with a gentler practice of yin to quiet the mind and open the body.
