Kundalini Yoga & Sound Bath
Kundalini Yoga combines yoga postures with breathing techniques. An integrated system of exercise, breath, control, and meditation. It is safe, comprehensive, and simple. All levels welcome. Class ends with a relaxing gong immersion.
A meditation class using many breathing techniques to create a quiet and meditative mind, concentration, and clarity. The mind follows the breath and the body follows the mind.
Energizing & Rejuvenating Vinyasa Flow Yoga
This class is a gradual progression that systematically and appropriately takes a student from one point and safely lands them at the next point. It links movement and breath to attain balance in the mind and body. "Vinyasa" meaning "to place in a special way" ... and is designed to create internal heat or "Agni", in order to build power and strength; not just physically. But building mental, emotional and spiritual strength as well.
A gentler style of hatha yoga practice. It is performed at a slower pace, with less intense positions, and includes extended time for meditation, yogic breath work, and relaxation.
Kundalini Meditation & Soundbath
This invigorating practice complements all other yoga practices and exercise programs, and will take you on a journey of self-discovery. All levels welcome.
A Gong Bath is like a very deep and lasting massage, by tuning the physical body and soul to the greatest possible resonance. Usually laying down on your back in savasana position, receiving the sound energy of the gong as the vibrations move through the nervous system. Opening, clearing and recharging the whole mind, body and spirit. This triggers a meditation, contemplation state in which we have the opportunity to relinquish control of the mind. Negativity and chaos are suspended, irregularity and resistance are cleared, and the whole being is reset to a state of synchrony and alignment.
Class is taught in a book reading and discussion setting. Reading the sutra, practicing the meditation and sharing experience. By practicing Tantra Meditations we reconnect with our birthright of happiness, thus embracing our true nature as radiant, creative and blissful beings. Recommended to have a copy of the book "Book of Secrets" by Osho. *This class is offered virtually via Zoom only.
Yogalates is a mixture of Pilates and Yoga. You will get a workout that increases core strength and improves posture, whilst increasing flexibility and reducing stiffness. Pilates focuses on strengthening the body's "Powerhouse", which is our legs, glutes, spine, and abdominal muscles. Calisthenics Exercises are aimed at strengthening the core abdominal muscles, which support the spine and assist in good posture.
Yin Yoga + Tuning Fork
Yin Yoga targets your deep connective tissues, your fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. It’s slower and more meditative, giving you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body. By holding posture for an extended time, yin yoga helps you stretch and lengthen those rarely-used tissues while also teaching you how to breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts. Tuning Forks are also used to help tune the nervous system, bringing all parts of yourself into a unified harmony. The nervous system entrains to the signal and further signals the tendons, muscles, and ligaments connecting each joint to come into a balanced tone.
The word Ashtanga is comprised of two Sanskrit words, “Ashta” and “Anga.” “Ashta” refers to the number eight, while “Anga” means limb or body part. Therefore, Ashtanga is the union of the eight limbs of yoga, into one complete, holistic system. These eight-limbs of yoga represent the various branches of the philosophy of the yoga sutras that form the foundation in the Ashtanga Yoga School. The Ashtanga philosophy is to integrate all of the eight limbs of yoga, which include: Yama (moral codes), Niyama (self-discipline), Asana (posture), Pranayama (breath control), Pratyahara (sense withdrawal), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation), and Samadhi (oneness with the self).
Ashtanga is a very dynamic and athletic form of hatha yoga, made up of six series or levels, with a fixed order of postures. It is rooted in vinyasa, the flowing movements between postures, with a focus on energy and breath. While it is a very physical practice, it also promotes mental clarity and inner peace.
Self Myofascial Release (SMFR)
Feeling stiff, tight, full of tension, and stressed out in your muscles and soft tissues? Myofascial Pain Syndrome is a chronic pain disorder caused by sensitivity and tightness in myofascial tissues and creates “trigger points”. The use of therapeutic balls can be used to reach the deepest layers of muscles and connective tissues, to give your muscles the chance to fully stretch and contract. “Fascia” or “Myofascia” is a sheath or web of stringy connective tissue, made mostly of collagen; that surrounds every part of your body. It provides support to your muscles, tendons, ligaments, tissues, organs, nerves, joints and bones. When your fascia is healthy, it’s flexible and stretches with you. When your fascia tightens up, it can restrict movement and cause painful health conditions.
With the gentle use of Myofascial Balls using Self Myofascial Release Technique (SMFR), practitioners can find release with the use of the Myofascial Balls. Myofascial Balls get into places where human hands cannot reach.
SMFR has many benefits such as: increasing blood flow, reduces muscle soreness, sustains normal functioning of muscle length, improving lymphatic drainage, helps boost immune system. This class will also introduce and incorporate acupressure meridian point relief, keeping energy pathways clear and healthy.
