Don't be late...
This class may also offer pranayama (breathing techniques) and guided meditation. Due to the slower pace of this class, you will have time to get to know your body in postures, and begin to train your mind and nervous system to recognize and appreciate an inner state of calm.
Many of our advanced Yogis know the value of taking this kind of class. All are welcome to slow down and enjoy the ride.
Breath threads the postures into playful yet mindful flows.Vinyasa brings detoxification, flexibility and strength. Explore both standing and seated postures. Each class is unique-sometimes back bends, balances, twists, inversions, working toward a “peak pose or a body region (hips, shoulders, core, etc. OR we may just flow, touching each part of the body via movement and intention.
The practice will wind down to a deep savasana that will polish your newly sharpened edges into a peaceful, balanced and invigorated state of being.
Those new to Yoga or to Vinyasa may feel challenged at times-no worries; We allow you YOUR experience at YOUR level. Even the most advanced Yogis know that taking Child’s Pose is sometimes the perfect place to be.
If you are new to Yoga, we recommend that you attend a minimum of 10 of our regular Vinyasa classes before coming to this class so you are somewhat familiar with the ever changing postures and your ever changing body. This class will likely feel more intense because your inner focus will be turned up but we know you can do it!
Stretching, movement and breath will progressively warm up your body into a flow that will get your blood and breath moving. Your brain will feel pretty good too!
All are welcome to modify.
All levels welcome.
You will be lying down or reclined for most of the Yin postures. Sometimes you will be guided into some light muscle activation, but mostly all of this class is done as passively as possible. This allows access to the fascia(connective tissue) .
Holds on these stretches are sustained for anywhere from 3-7 minutes, using supports such as bolsters, blankets, blocks and straps as needed . Flexibility is NOT a requirement-just an open mind and a willingness to let go.
This class combines a deep, slow stretch of the connective tissues, with a focus on safe and comfortable alignment. Often in your first session, you will experience reduced tension in your muscles and joints-even a sense of space and freedom. Your mind will likely follow suit since that is how our nervous systems functions; It is like a win-win.
In this Yoga class you may start off with s few gentle, movements. Movement helps to release blocked or stagnant energy in the body. Then, get ready to melt into Restorative poses.
The supportive Restorative postures will target your nervous system inviting a sense of calm and clarity. Bolsters, blocks and blankets cradle you in the right places with just the right amount of support so that you can relax as completely as possible; It’s all about letting go.
This peaceful state of being will reset your body and mind. As a result, you may just experience an night of amazing sleep.
Can you hear it? Bliss is calling your name.
Appropriate for all levels of experience
