Yin yoga is a deep and introspective practice. It is also an effective method to prepare the body for meditation. Physically, the primary intention is to stimulate the underlying tissues that wrap around the joints. Stretching and strengthening the connective tissues in the joints is therapeutic when done with proper alignment. Long holds awaken the subtle energetic body, which restores vital energy and creates optimal balance within. A typical yin pose is held for 3-7 minutes, and a good Yin practice is comparable to an acupuncture session, where the vital organs are nourished and Chi (prana) is renewed.

Hatha yoga / Rupesh
Apr 22 @ 6:30 pm – 7:45 pm

With “Ha” meaning sun and “Tha” meaning moon, hatha yoga is commonly know as the yoga that brings union to pairs of opposites. Hatha yoga is a traditional method to bring awareness to the physical body as well as the inner energetic body. The sun and moon refer to the inner opposing energies within our universe and our body. The practice of postures allows you to clear tightness and experience openness in mind and body. One progresses through the outer identification of body towards an inward understanding of the subtle experiences of mind. Hatha classes are generally more slow paced and available to beginners and seasoned practitioners.

Vinyasa flow / Carlijn / Kristine

Vinyasa flow / Carlijn / Kristine

In Vinyasa you will learn how to flow with the breath.  With Practice you learn how to be transformed by your breath and open into a new dimension of conscious movement. The interconnections between breath, body, and mind are experienced as you move towards the essence of yoga. The dynamic nature of the practice gives you something tangible to focus on. The more you focus on the movement of your breath, the more you are able to move into the present. The practice becomes a moving meditation. While balance, strength, flexibility and openness begin to arise in your physical being; you begin to feel the more subtle energetic awakenings throughout your subtle systems. The practice will help you feel both relaxed and revitalized. Vinyasa yoga challenges you to move out of habitual holding patterns within your body and mind. And rest in the dynamic nature of the present moment.

Ashtanga yoga / Hiroko
Apr 24 @ 9:15 am – 10:45 am

Ashtanga yoga classes focus on a specific set of postures linked by dynamic movement. The sequence is practiced again and again as the student refines each posture. The dynamic nature of the practice comes from a physically demanding transition between poses.  This transitional movement is know as a  “vinyasa”; a vinyasa in an upward and downward flow of movement. This continuous flow creates a strong and stimulating experience.  The practice also encourages students to work with inner energy through a yogic technique called  “banda”. Bandhas are methods to hold, balance, and maintain subtle internal energy. Your body and mind are challenged to move in new dynamic ways bringing a depth of focus creating physical, mental and emotional strength. This yoga class is accessible to all yoga practitioners regardless of their level or previous practice. Classes are modified to the student so that all can participate fully at their own level.
