Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga in which postures, known as "asanas" are held for extended periods. We typically ask you to hold each posture for between five and eight minutes. This contemplative, focused class is beneficial for recovery after injury, pain management and enhancing the mind-body connection. While more active yang styles, such as vinyasa yoga, focus on body sculpt, strengthening and toning, yin is the opposite. Yin yoga targets the deep connective tissues, known as the fascia, within the body. This meditation style helps regulate energy flow throughout the body.

Yin teaches you to truly sit still and listen to your body. In our high-stress, high-demand lives, it can be difficult to find moments of stillness and surrender. In yin practice is the perfect time to come into one's own body and mind, accept what is, and simply learn to be. This spiritual practice is important for working through not only physical limitations, but also past emotional traumas. Emotional pain that has been locked away within the body resurfaces.

Vinyasa yoga

Vinyasa yoga, also referred to as flow yoga, is a practice in which movements and asanas (poses) are synchronized with the breath. . The asanas are linked together so that the class consists of almost continuous, smoothly flowing movement. One of our vinyasa classes is a great way to break a sweat, and the synchronization of breath with movement brings sense of increased focus.

Vinyasa is a diverse practice suited to practitioners of all skill levels. Its emphasis on variety has made it a popular choice among Western yoga students, and students at our studio find that their minds rests as the body keeps continuous flow.. Our instructors are happy to meet you at your skill level and make the vinyasa class work for you. Our aim is to make you feel comfortable, so don’t be afraid to try something new, because we will help you along the way!

 
 
 

Meditation and Yoga

According to ancient Yogic philosophy, the practice of yoga reveals the interconnectedness of every living thing.  Given the nature of our busy, stressful lives, quieting the mind can be very difficult. This is why our yoga classes end with a period of relaxation/meditation. The physical exercise of practicing different yoga postures helps to link breath with movement and prepare the mind for stillness and meditation According to ancient Yogic philosophy, the practice of yoga reveals the interconnectedness of every living thing.  Given the nature of our busy, stressful lives, quieting the mind can be very difficult.
