Offered at a slower pace, this class focuses on the fundamentals of yoga. This is a perfect class for those who have never practiced yoga, and those who want a very gentle class. You will be introduced to basic asanas (postures), pranayma (breath) and yoga terminology. This class will prepare the student for a more challenging class, or will provide a gentle class on a continuing basis. This class is offered to all persons regardless of limitations.
Hatha Yoga is sometimes called a “dual” type of yoga because it includes a duality between two opposites: the sun (in Sanskrit, “Ha”) and the moon (“tha”). The main established principle for Hatha Yoga leads to specific structured poses that help with body and mind “purification” through principles like asana (postures) and pranayama (subtle energy control).
Hatha Flow allows you to move from one posture to another in a continuous, flowing sequence, linked together by breath. More physically demanding than a Hatha class, Flow helps improve your strength, flexibility, and stamina.
Pilates emphasizes mindful movement and quality over quantity. In these mat classes we will use many props to help you master the movements to develop your core from the inside out. You will learn to connect your movements with your breath as well as awareness of which movements serve your body and which do not. We will also incorporate Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching into our Pilates classes – you will learn to stretch stronger and gain length with your strength! All levels welcome.
