Mindful Yoga starting with a brief meditation to set intentions, followed by floor stretches, slow vinyasa flow, and strength-building standing and balancing poses. Finish off with deep relaxation in Savasana. You will have options for less challenge or more challenge. Yoga is for EVERYONE! All experience levels welcomed.
Fridays 11a-12:15p (75 mins)
1st & 3rd Fridays Yin/Restorative: A slow and meditative experience of passively holding floor poses yoga that will condition the tissues to become more elastic, enhance the natural range of motion in the joints, and release deep layers of connective tissue, creating more ease in any style of yoga and healthy movement.
2nd & 4th (& 5th) Fridays Mixed Gentle Yoga: Slow, mindful, therapeutic yoga. A more gentle & therapeutic version of Tuesday mixed yoga to help you wind down for the weekend. Therapy balls are incorporated.
Barre Yoga Fusion: Barre classes use a combination of movements inspired by ballet and other disciplines like Yoga and Pilates. In Barre Yoga fusion we focus on building strength in a variety of areas: legs, bottom, low back, abdomen and upper body. We use vinyasa flow yoga, dynamic movement and stretches to warm the body up, and static stretches and holds to lengthen muscles out. Improving flexibility and mobility, the class includes Pilates elements to target balance and coordination. We incorporate center floor practices for full body core strength and possibly light weights and exercise balls to enhance resistance training. The barre or chairs are used as a prop to balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) to bring the burn during isolation of key muscles. Strengthening our core in a dynamic sequence leaves us feeling energized and strong!
