Lotus Spirit Dynamic Practice
Based on Universal Yoga principles this class has you moving through creative and intentionally designed postures in multiple directions on the mat. The practice utilizes pranayama, mudra, mantra and asana to influence your body mind and spirit to reach a state of contentment and vitality on and off the mat. Some experience with yoga is recommended but not required.
Hatha Yoga Practice
This practice is fundamental as it helps build strength, balance and flexibility – asanas are held for 30-60 seconds each. Learn how to move in and out of postures with grace and control, how to stay in postures to build muscle endurance and focus, how to use your breath to link body and mind. Modifications and intensifications are offered for each posture making this a practice for beginner to advanced practitioners.
Deep Stretch Yoga Practice
In this class we move into stretching postures and hold them in order to connect breath with body on a deeper level to stretch muscles and open joints. We tend to hold energy and emotion in hips and shoulders so we focus on opening these areas to release stress and bring an overall state of well-being. Loved by practitioners of all abilities.
Vinyasa Yoga Practice
Move through asanas with a flowing energy connecting body with breath. Postures are held only briefly as you gracefully move from one form to another. This class builds cardiovascular endurance, strength and balance. Great for all levels, it is recommended to take some Hatha Yoga classes first to familiarize yourself with postures if you are new to yoga.
This class is designed for those who are interested in starting a yoga practice and for those with physical limitations. You will be guided slowly through each posture and given guidance on how to effectively get into and out of each asana based on your body's unique needs. We will focus on building skills within the framework of the Classic 26 Hatha Yoga postures to build strength, balance and flexibility. This class is slow paced and limited to 5 participants.
