Yoga with a Chair

ALL LEVELS:

Using a chair can enhance and deepen the execution of a pose. Open to All Levels, each class explores the fundamentals of good posture and alignment. Using a chair is like practicing with your fun, Yoga Buddy!

LIMITED ABILITY:

Physical movement for both pre and post surgery, hip and knee issues, and injuries which require specific assistance is the motivation for this class. The session starts with hand-eye coordination exercises to music, and develops into sequences to enhance flexibility, strength and balance. The class always ends with a deep relaxation.

Restorative Yoga

Using extra props like cushions, blankets, and sandbags assists in deep physical and mental rest. Paying attention to regulating the in and exhale and taking a pause from the busyness of our lives, Restorative Yoga can take one into deep states of stillness, peace and tranquility. We practice staying close to the floor, so practitioners must be able to get down to the floor and up again without assistance.

Yoga Flow

A vigorous vinyasa flow of traditional Hatha Yoga poses and sequences. “Vigorous” means strong, healthy, and full of energy and together we add some fun. Optional light weights may be added as additional challenges for those wanting to help tone the body and challenge the mind. The class is geared to intermediate to advanced students but all levels are welcome with options to make the class as challenging as you want it to be. Remember, the most important part of yoga is your outfit! Well, actually, it’s your attitude! So bring your outfits and your positive energy and let’s rock this class with some cool music added to help enliven the class!

All classes are by donation. Suggested donation is $20 or whatever you can afford. Class limited to 10. Please email to register for classes, [email protected].

Hula Classes

As there are many aspects involved in hula, this class will be directed in part by the interests of the participants. Each class will begin with feet movements (basics), and will include some Hawaiian language, history and cultural practices as well as dancing hula kahiko (old style) and hula auana (more modern).

Creative Vinyasa

Themes are interwoven into a dancing slow flow practice. The teaching style focuses on fluid form, embodiment and moving meditation. The mandala sequences are creative and passionate; balancing powerful softness and supported gracefulness.

Crystal Bowl/Harmonic Toning Sessions

The Crystal Bowl/Harmonic Toning sessions are about bringing deep clarity and clearing for all the energy centers of the Emotional, Physical, Mental and Spiritual bodies. Sound is a wonderful tool to bypass mind-chatter and access core, subconscious issues, while also providing a means of release for these very issues.

The mood of each session is very relaxed leading to deep meditative states.

In each session, we begin with the intention of being present with the light and love that already exists in each of us. We become witness to a deep healing presence radiating into and extending out of our hearts. This healing presence becomes greatly magnified as we join our hearts in a group setting.

These sessions are non-denominational and all-inclusive which are especially open to those in need of physical, mental or emotional healing.

Tensegrity Repair Series

The Tensegrity Repair Series is a movement sequence designed by Gioia Irwin of Vancouver, BC, which focuses on tuning into the myofascial network of the body, and how it relates to our skeletal structure. Done mostly lying on the back, these movements help to tone and strengthen the core, breakdown knots and adhesions throughout the body, and rehydrate the fascia for greater joint mobility and overall balanced and connected body function. Relaxing, yet invigorating, the Tensegrity Repair Series can be helpful in recovery from injury, chronic pain, or stress related tension, and can also provide a stable base from which to grow your yoga or movement practice.

Suitable for all levels, including complete beginners

Vinyasa

Vinyasa can be thought of as a story: in the beginning we warm up the body listening to what the body has space for in that moment. Then we move the body, making decisions along the way to sustain the energy now initiated. Tension is released as the subtle body now makes itself known. Finally, resting allows for integration to take place, basking in the deep body wisdom.

This class is for the Intermediate Yogi wanting to enjoy tempo and movement. Each class is different! The second to last song is always saved for free dance!!!

Pilates & Yin

These classes are the perfect balance to strengthen and stretch the body.

The practice will assist you in building strength with Pilates, improving your mobility range with functional movement exercises and releasing tension while relaxing in supported Yin Yoga postures.

Pilates is a mindful, low impact practice, all about stability and control. Aside from building long, lean and dense muscles in the body, you will improve the health and stabilization of your spine, will increase flexibility and will be more aware of your body and your posture when going about your day.

Yin is all about stillness and supported, longer held postures which will target the connective tissues of the body, releasing tension beyond the superficial muscles. The objective of this part of the class is to create space in the body while entering a meditative state.

Cost per session will be a sliding scale between $10 – $20
