Vinyasa Flow Level 1-2
Vinyasa means to move with the breath, which is the core of a Vinyasa class!
In Vinyasa Flow Level 1-2, you will be focusing on linking your breath with your movements and flowing through poses strung together to form one fluid sequence of movement. You will focus on engaging the core and improving stamina, strength, and flexibility while synchronizing Ujjayi breath with movement.
A Vinyasa Flow Yoga class is considered the most cardio-based yoga style; it features constant motion and rhythmical movement, ideal for will helping you to connect your body and mind and relieve stress and anxiety.
Yoga for Stress
If you are suffering from stress, anxiety, or depression and are seeking a gentle Yoga practice to improve your sleep and general wellbeing, this class is right for you!
Yoga for Stress will allow you to drift into a deep relaxation of your mind and body. Full focus on breathing exercises (Pranayama) linked with movement will calm your nervous system – helping you to relax the body and mind.
Mindfulness meditation, breathing exercises and positive psychology linked with gentle Hatha Yoga practice is a great combination for all levels, including complete beginners and people suffering from any injuries.
Prepare two blocks, a strap, and a blanket to help you improve your practice.
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with stretches that target deep connective tissues to increase circulation. Classes consist of a series of long-held, passive floor poses as well as the practice of mindfulness. You can relax into the asanas and allow your body to soften and release naturally without pushing or straining.
Yin Yoga is perfect for improving flexibility in the body and also for increasing circulation to the joints and is a great way to begin your yoga practice. People with less mobility may find this a great class as there is no dynamic, faster-paced movement.
Vinyasa Slow Flow Yoga
Vinyasa Slow Flow Yoga is the perfect combination of modified Vinyasa flow and Hatha! The slow speed brings an element of time into the yoga practice, allowing you to cool down the mind, get a better perspective of your surroundings, and focus on movement as a whole.
With not as many transitions as classic vinyasa yoga, but more flow than hatha yoga, Vinyasa Slow Flow Yoga is low impact and features gradual transitions between various poses.
Slow flow encourages you to stay in the pose for longer and sink deeper into your practice!
Rocket Yoga incorporates a series of postures, based on a modification of the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga primary and intermediate series. The focus of this class is on dynamic flow, breathwork, inversions and backbends, helping individuals to build a strong practice. The Rocket sequence encourages play, arm balances, and some of the advanced poses in Yoga.
You will be offered tips and modifications where needed for everyone new to Rocket Yoga as well as for advanced practitioners!
