HATHA

Hatha is a general category that includes most yoga styles. It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation. Hatha classes focus on correctly aligning the body to improve general posture, breathing and circulation. Hatha is ideal for beginners and those with physical limitations.

IYENGAR

Named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, is a form of Hatha Yoga that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through the asanas. B.K.S.

RESTORATIVE

A form of yoga that seeks to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of props. The use of props makes it easier for you to maintain balance while you are stimulating and relaxing your body.

VINYASA FLOW

Vinyasa Yoga is a dynamic system of practicing asanas (poses). Yoga postures flow in a logical sequence. Each position complements those that precede and follow. This practice focuses on the synchronization of breath & the continuous flow of movement. Vinyasa is a strong practice that builds heat, endurance, flexibility, strength and mental focus. This class can be strenuous; may be appropriate for beginners.

YIN YOGA

Named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, is a form of Hatha Yoga that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through the asanas. B.K.S.

CORE BALANCE

This class will help you build core awareness, stability and strength.  You will learn how to safely strengthen and engage the core abdominal complex, learn techniques to release body muscle tension.  A stronger and stable core will better support the spine resulting in better posture alignment, balanced breath and may help reduce minor lower back and neck issues.

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

  • Yin/Yang through the Seasons with Clare Buckley Sept 8th, 2018 5 pm - 7 pm (Series dates Oct. 6th, Nov 3rd, Dec 1st 5pm-7pm)

    The element of Earth relates to Late Summer which is considered in some traditions as it’s own season. It is a time to cleanse and support our Stomach and Spleen Meridians. The Earth represents the balance of yin and yang and strives to bring harmony, grounding and stability. In Late Summer, Earth is at a point of stillness and transition in the cycle of seasons. This is an enriching time to pause, slow down and observe the inner and outer shifts from active summer abundance toward the more inward, cooler emotions of Fall and Winter.

    Join Clare as she guides you through this beautiful and inspiring practice. You will experience unique and rejuvenating offerings of breath work,insight, mindful meditation, sound healing, aromatherapy and deeply supportive and seasonally beneficial poses. Make your transition this late summer an opportunity to deeply honor natures glorious cycles as they are so intimately reflected within us.

    Clare has been teaching yoga, yin and yin/yang classes, workshops and retreats for over 18 years. In relation specifically to her Yin yoga, she has trained extensively with Sarah Powers and Paul Grilley since 2000. Her workshops bring expertise, unique insight, warmth, and whole-hearted encouragement.

  • Kundalini Meditation with Yoni Roth September 22nd, 2018 6pm-7:30pm

    Meditation practices are techniques that encourage and develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm seeing of the true nature of things. By engaging with a particular meditation practice you learn the patterns and habits of your mind. With regular work and patience these nourishing, focused states of mind can deepen into profoundly peaceful and energized states, and cultivates more positive ways of being.

    Meditation in Kundalini Yoga contains specific, practical tools that carefully and precisely support the mind and guide the body through the use of breath, mantra, mudra, and focus. The range and variety of meditation techniques in the Kundalini Yoga tradition is truly extraordinary. Yogi Bhajan passed on hundreds of meditations tailored to specific applications. There are meditations that reduce stress, work on addictions, increase vitality, and clear chakras, to name a few. While there exist many, many styles and approaches to meditation, what sets this approach to meditation apart is its precision, effectiveness, and practicality.
