Class Descriptions

 

All Levels Vinyasa Yoga - (beginner to seasoned student) Awaken and experience the intelligence that dwells within the body. Modifications of postures will be shared during the Vinyasa practice to increase or reduce the intensity of your practice. Explore a beautiful blend of postures with subtle energetic elements of alignments, internal heat, mantras, pranayama, visualization and meditation.

 

Chair Yoga and Meditation - This class is designed for those who want to modify hatha yoga poses by using a chair and experience group meditation. It is great for those with mobility issues, those who are unable to get up and down from the floor or other physical challenges. The first 60 minutes of the class consists of gentle movements of the spine, stretching and mindful breathing. The last 15 minutes of the class is a different type of meditation each week: guided, mindfulness, affirmations, visualizations, mantra, breathing meditations or inquiry meditation.

 

Yoga for the Golden Years - A class for those new to yoga or students of all levels who want a relaxing flow. Howard's class focuses on a series of flowing yoga postures and how to connect them through breath and mindfulness. You will gain flexibility as you immerse yourself in this relaxing class that moves at a slower pace. Yoga for the Golden Years is perfect for stress relief and overall well being.

 

Restorative Yoga - Restorative poses are often referred to as “active relaxation.” By supporting the body with props, we alternately stimulate and relax the body to move towards balance. A deep state of physiological relaxation in which one can soften muscular tension, nourish the organs, balance the hormones, stimulate prana for vitality, increase radiance and create space for the breath and thoughts. This class will aid in chronic pain, especially therapeutic for people recovering from injuries, illness or life transitions.

 

Serenity Yoga - Shed the stress and burdens! This class will encourage you to slow down, and reconnect with yourself. You will explore a combination of yoga postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), mudras and meditation. Open to students wanting to reduce stress, calm the mind, boost your feelings of well-being, and experience an inner stillness. All levels and physical abilities are welcome. Modifications will be given for beginner students and variations will be offered for all levels.

 

Svaroopa Yoga (swa-roo-pa) means “Bliss Yoga.”  If you have back pain, neck pain, knee pain or a crazy-busy mind, you need this approach to yoga's poses and breathing practices. A personalized yoga, with careful alignments and propping customized to your body's needs, Svaroopa yoga is easily accessible - yet profound.  Its specialty is called Core Opening, the targeted release of the deepest layers of tensions in your body. Core opening provides profound pain relief, increased strength, as well as vitality and clarity of mind, all from a seemingly easy practice. Svaroopa is an excellent fit for both new and experienced yoga students.

 

TriYoga (basics - level one) - Explore relaxation-in-action, wave-like spinal movements and economy of motion. With the systematic approach, students increase their knowledge of posture and flow, as well as strength, flexibility, endurance and breath control. Through sustained awareness on all aspects of the practice, the movement of body, breath and mudra harmonize and the inner flow naturally emerges. Students of all levels are welcome.
