Soma Yoga is a practice that blends the movement healing system of Somatics (created by Thomas Hanna) with traditional Yoga asana. The idea behind Somatics is that small, slow, gentle exercises are used to re-educate the nervous system and allow for the release of tight, restricted muscles. This new awareness allows muscles to release long held patterns in the body that cause pain and discomfort over time. This practice lays the framework for functional movement. It is never too late to correct imbalances in the body. This method is very effective in training the brain/body to correct imbalances from the inside. It is an empowering practice that leads to smarter and more freedom in movement.
Hatha yoga is about finding balance between the body, the mind, and the breath. This class emphasizes the individual poses and alignment. Longer held postures allow time for the body to find comfort and ease in their practice. The practice calms the nervous system and invigorates the body. Modifications are offered so that students may adapt the class to their comfort level.
This is an all levels vinyasa inspired yoga class designed to move from pose to pose. The focus is on breathing through the transitions of poses that will build upon each other with a flow like quality to help increase flexibility, strength and stamina. This class is designed for all levels but you must be able to comfortably transition up and down off the floor.
Yin Yoga is a quiet, meditative practice that focuses on the passive holding of postures for longer periods of time, anywhere from 2 to 5 minutes or longer. Through mindful muscle relaxation, access is gained to the deeper tissues, such as the ligaments, fascia, and even the joints especially the hips, pelvis and lower spine. This style encourages the opening and relaxation of the body. Longer holds and focused breathing give rise to a nourishing and grounding practice. Benefits you can expect are increased mobility in the body, lowering of stress levels, more flexibility in joints and connective tissue. Suitable for all levels of students.
