Yoga Classes

First, our center is not a full-blown yoga school.  We have a lot of cool things going on in our space to provide customers with a one-stop for self-care.  Our instructors are independently building their own classes, so please contact them for scheduling.  Our website has a basic schedule, however by contacting the instructor directly, other classes can be added to the schedule, so if there is a particular time you would like a class ask!  Our Yoga instructors focus ion quality with special personalized attention achieved by smaller classes. Or if you prefer a private session or work group class, our instructors can accommodate!

You may have some questions – we have answers…

 

Class Size

Classes are semi-private/small and specialized to include beginners to intermediate and advanced.  Smaller classes mean more personalized attention and a sense of connection and community we feel is integral to your confidence and growth.

What Are the Benefits of Yoga?

Physically Yoga provides improvement in body alignment, strength, endurance and flexibility.  Mentally Yoga provides focus, self-discipline, confidence, stress-relief, and self-insight.

What Do I wear?

Comfortable, loose clothing that is not binding and easy to move in.  Yoga tops provide the best movement as they cling and won’t ride up or fall over your head when you are bending over for some of the poses.  Bare feet is the protocol on the floor.

What Do I Need To Bring?

Your own yoga mat (although if you forget, there are a few extras on hand).  You may need a small towel, however we don’t provide “hot yoga” so a towel is optional if you tend to perspire easily.  There are also a few blocks and straps for students use.  If you prefer to bring your own, that works too. Feel free to bring a water bottle or we have water available.  Water bottles may kept beside, but not on, the yoga floor.  Shelves and bins are provided for your personal items.

Class Length and Class Etiquette

Classes are one hour in length.  Please ask your instructor about class protocols, for example reserving.  Please arrive ten minutes before your class to set up your mat.  Once class starts, late arrivals may not interrupt the class in fairness to others.

How Much Does It Cost?

The cost varies per instructor and her experience.  Drop-in rates are available with some instructors.

What Styles/Types of Yoga Are Offered?

Some of the types of yoga classes taught vary from Hatha Yoga to Restorative to Vinyasa Flow depending on the instructor for the class.  Below are descriptions for each type:

 

Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga is a classic style of yoga which often incorporates asana (poses), pranayama (breathing techniques), and meditation. A traditional Hatha yoga class balances the diverse needs of each individual. It‘s design empowers you with the focus, training and insight you need to achieve consistent results in the most important areas of your life. These classes may hold poses a little longer, offering more time for focus on alignment, building strength, endurance, flexibility, and power in the mind and body. It moves at a pace designed to allow for increased body awareness as well as provide challenge. Appropriate for all levels.

Restorative Yoga

This restorative practice relies on the use of props and the prolonged holding of a few simple poses and meditative breathing to achieve a deep level of relaxation. Restorative yoga provides greater mobility and self-acceptance, leading toward a more recuperative experience. The slower pace and deep breathing triggers the parasympathetic nervous system helping to alleviate the effects of the regular fight-or-flight stress response that can be damaging to one’s physiology and well-being.

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa flow is a style of yoga where the movements are connected through the breath to attain balance in the body and mind. This flow includes intention, meditation, pranayama (breath work), asana (poses), and sun salutations. Peacefulness is achieved in the class ending through savasana (final resting pose).
