Gentle Yoga is appropriate for those who want a softer, slow paced, well supported and relaxing practice and is specifically for those new to yoga or those who are interested in a gentle practice. This class incorporates a simple flowing sequence to warm up the body, as well as slower paced movements focusing on alignment, balance, stability and flexibility. Students will have various props to use during the practice to ensure comfort, confidence and ease.
This class is appropriate for anyone at any age.
Level I Open to students new to the fundamentals of our particular tradition of Hatha Yoga. We usually suggest most students start with level 1 even though you may have taken yoga elsewhere.
Level I/II –Continuing For students who have been through the fundamentals of level I, but wary of the level II inversions, sun salutations, backbends, and arm balances. This is an intermediate class covering all of the standing poses, preparations for inversions, and rudimentary sun salutations, backbends, and arm balances.
Level II – Continuing Open to students who have completed a level I course or have previous Hatha yoga experience. Greater detail is given to the basic standing poses. Revolved standings and continuing level inversions are introduced, emphasizing their preparatory actions. Sun Salutations, forward bends, backbends, twists and arm balances are also introduced.
Restorative Yoga A 90 minute sequence of supported seated and reclining poses, using breath as a process to release tension and unwind stress. Pausing, more than posing, we’ll spend time with each posture – settling in, allowing the body to become extra still, the mind extra quiet.
Sitting Meditation We believe that Hatha Yoga and sitting meditation are practices that support each other. All students are invited whether just finishing the earlier class or just before beginning the later class. These are optional free 20 minute sitting meditations guided in the very simple instructions of Vipassana Meditation of the Theravada Buddhist tradition. Specifically we practice Anapanasati from the U Ba Kin Burmese tradition We offer a 45 minute sitting meditation on Sunday mornings. No previous meditation experience required. You may bring your own cushions and benches or use ours. All sitting meditations are optional and free of charge.
