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.
Gentle Yoga This class is designed for people who are either intimidated by a regular Level I yoga class, recovering from illness, or have some sort of chronic condition or injury. We will focus on your particular needs, strengths and fears, and address them in a caring way. The approach to these gentle classes will be to provide a safe place for movement and to create an environment for healing. We will use the wall, chairs, and other props so people can meet the practice where they are, with the teacher providing assistance as needed. Students will be encouraged to communicate to the teacher throughout the class so that individuals may have a balanced experience. There will be an ample relaxation provided at the end of each class which will pay careful attention to the breath as source of life.
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 Now we are offering a 45 minute sitting meditation on Sunday mornings. No previous meditation experience required. You may bring your own cushions and benches or use ours.
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.
Yoga over 50 The main objective is to direct the yoga to the common issues that people over the age of 50 typically deal with on a daily basis. Each student will be inspired, through slow and carefully directed poses, to discover the benefits of yoga through proper alignment and breath control. Students will realize that age doesn’t matter when practicing yoga and with the help of various props beginners can feel at ease and not be intimidated
TGIF Yoga This class is designed for all levels. We will focus on a practice to unwind from a week of work and to ready you for the weekend
