Offered by donation. Bring a yoga mat, a flashlight and a friend! Meet at the gate 15 minutes prior to start time, class is rain or shine.
Delve into the basics of yoga practice. This is an appropriate class for beginners or any student who would like to explore the fundamentals of asana, pranayama, meditation and yogic philosophy. This foundational class will examine the principles of proper alignment, breathing techniques, quieting the mind and chanting styles. Various yogic philosophies and spiritual traditions will be discussed as a way to enhance the student’s personal practice. Many styles of Hatha yoga, including Vinyasa, Slow Flow, Restorative or Yin, may be included and will vary each week.
Can't get down on the floor? Well, you don't need to! Chair Yoga adapts yoga poses to your body through creative use of a chair. The chair replaces the yoga mat and becomes an extension of your body. The student is able to warm up their body safely and practice yoga with more support and stability. Poses are done seated on the chair or the chair is used for support during standing poses and balancing. Chair Yoga is suitable for all ages, fitness levels and physical conditions and especially beneficial for people with physical limitations. This is a 1 hour class.
All Levels Vinyasa
The word vinyasa means “with appropriate placement”. Move through yoga poses while mindfully integrating movement and
breathe with proper alignment. Vinyasa yoga teaches us to cultivate awareness with our actions. The sequences in this all levels class will progress with harmony and grace. The class will follow a skillful rhythm and artful approach to yoga vinyasa. Whether you are new to yoga or have practiced for years, this class will be just what you need!
Yin Yoga is practiced at a slower pace. It gives the student a chance to unwind, to decompress to re-center. The class typically is a series of long held, passive floor poses incorporating pranayama and meditation techniques. Yin Yoga is a quiet and simple practice, but not necessarily an easy one. There are longer periods of quiet and time to contemplate as you practice. It nourishes your mind, body and spirit. Yin Yoga works deeply into your connective tissues, ligaments, joints, bones and fascia. It improves energy flow and enhances the flow of chi into the organs. Connective tissue responds best to a slow, steady load. If you gently stretch connective tissue by holding a yin pose for a long time, the body will respond by making them a little longer and stronger— which is exactly what you want.
Rock and Roll Yoga
It will be loud. There may be offensive language. If this doesn't sound fun to you, PLEASE DON'T COME! The flow of the class will depend on the flow of the music and will vary each week. High energy music, high energy class. Chill music, chill class. The music may include Classic Rock, Hard Rock, Metal, Acoustic, Punk, Reggae or Alternative. (Suggestions welcome!) This is a great way to start your weekend off with some serious fun! Music connects us and is an essential way we express ourselves. “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything”. - Plato
