Stretch, strengthen and explore body, mind and spirit. Absolute beginners: start here!
In Level 1, we begin to explore the Sun Salutations. Much time is spent learning the fundamentals and proper alignment of Downward Facing Dog, Plank and Chaturanga. We keep the pace slow so we can spend time properly aligning the standing poses.
Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations) are explored more deeply, adding in Upward Facing Dog. We step up the pace and difficulty from Level 1, adding in more standing poses and exploring the building blocks that lead to more intricate poses. Backbends go deeper. Hips and shoulders are asked to do more.
A vigorous class for yogis who want to go deeper in their practice. Surya Namaskar B creates a more demanding flow sequence. Inversions, arm balances and intricate poses including deep backbends are explored.
In Restorative class, you relax and renew. Yoga postures are fully supported by props - blocks, blankets, bolsters and straps - so that the body can release. This form of yoga is aimed at the nervous system. It leads us away from the 'flight or flight' response and allows the mind-body to 'rest and digest'. All props are provided - bring yourself, your breath and a mat (or rent one for $1).
