Balance and Restore
Ease into your weekend with this mellow vinyasa–based flow class. Using seated meditation, breathwork, and props, this class will help you connect back to YOU. Principles of alignment are combined with your controlled breath to increase strength, flexibility, awareness, and joy. One of the best rewards achieved from this class is that you will welcome a more relaxed and open state of mind as you align your body, mind, and spirit. Each student’s abilities and challenges will be honored by offering variations to support all ability levels. Led by Angie Becker, 200RYT
This is a continuation of a Beginner’s class led by Sasha Bassett, 200RYT. Ideal for beginners and those who have been away from yoga for a while.
Chair Yoga (on hiatus – contact us if interested)
Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga that is practiced sitting on a chair or standing using a chair for support. It offers the same benefits of any other yoga class – mobility, flexibility and strength. This class is perfect for anyone who has a hard time getting up from the floor. Led by Gail Herzog, 200RYT.
Chill-asana is that state of bliss when you’ve connected your body, mind and spirit through a yoga practice. Gail Herzog, 200RYT, will use yoga poses (asanas), breathing exercises, mindful relaxation and guided visualization to transport you to your “Happy Place.” All levels welcome.
Meditation with Angie
More and more studies are showing that meditation has profound benefits. It can actually restructure our brain’s gray matter in the regions crucial for attention and managing our emotions. Meditating can lessen our stress, sharpen our concentration and increase our compassion. And a regular meditation practice can boost our creativity and help us find solutions to problems. Join Angie Becker each week as she leads you in 45 minutes of stillness. Thursdays, 5:30-6:15, begins Feb. 1, $5
Mellow Morning Yoga
This is an all-levels class that includes asanas (postures), pranayama (breathwork) and meditation. Led by Sasha Bassett, 200RYT. 2nd and 4th Saturdays.
Restorative Yoga – Monthly
Restorative yoga uses a wide range of props to support the body so you can completely relax. Sequences typically are only 5 or 6 poses, are held for 5 minutes or more and include light twists, seated forward folds and gentle back bends. Led by Gail Herzog, 200RYT. Check our calendar or our Facebook page for dates. Space is limited to 8; reserve your spot by messaging us on Facebook.
Silent Mind, Strong Body
Meditation techniques, breath work (pranayama) and yoga postures (asansas) are used to connect the mind and body but there is more emphasis on building strength through some intermediate postures and more invigorating class sequences. Led by Danette Watt, 200RYT (cancelled during February)
Passive postures are held longer (2-5 minutes) while relaxing the muscles, which allows for deep opening of the connective tissues in the body. This is a slower, more sustained practice with mostly sitting or lying postures that target the hips, pelvis and spine. No yoga experience required and all levels are welcome. Led by Sasha Bassett, 200RYT.
Yoga and Movement
We lose bone and muscle mass as we age, which can lead to a host of health problems. This class focuses on yoga postures that promote flexibility, coordination, strength and mobility while incorporating some vinyasa flows to increase the heart rate a little. Other movements that promote strength and coordination will be incorporated and other mobility tools will be used to promote a greater range of motion. Meditation and pranayama (breath work) are practiced to connect the body and mind. Beginners are welcome and modifications and progressions are available to suit all individuals. Led by Danette Watt, 200RYT (Monday’s class is cancelled during February; Samantha Burton will sub Wednesday mornings during February).
Yoga for Every Body
This is a continuation of an beginner’s class led by Gail Herzog, 200RYT. Class is appropriate for all levels and focuses on yoga postures, meditation and breath work.
Yoga Nidra – Monthly
Yoga Nidra (which means “yogic sleep”) uses specialized relaxation exercises, breathing techniques, meditation and guided imagery to lead you far beyond deep relaxation to a place of natural peace and quiet that is tremendously healing. You’ll experience profound relaxation, the release of chronic stress, restful sleep, resolution to many of your life’s conundrums and a greater sense of harmony in your daily life and relationships. Ultimately, Yoga Nidra points directly to your True Nature, to peace that is beyond description and that is your birthright. This peace is not an empty promise or only for a selected few but is present and available to you right now. It is a delicious, profoundly healing practice that is available to everybody. No yoga experience necessary. Led by Gail Herzog, 200RYT. Check our calendar or our Facebook page for dates. Reserve your spot by messaging us on Facebook.
