YOGA CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:
Our flow style classes maintain awareness and focus on the breath while moving through a series of postures. Yoga philosophy is combined with the physical practice in order to fully experience your practice. The physical sequence may be different from class to class, but always follows an intelligent progression that moves from basic to complex. This style of yoga builds heat, flexibility and strength, while maintaining focus on good alignment and sound structure. Postures may be held for longer periods of time, and will flow together to unite the body to the breath and mind. Modifications and variations will be offered to ensure posture safety. Classes range from beginner to advanced.
Our teachers draw upon many different yoga linages to provide you with a complete and personal yoga experience. A common denominator in all of our yoga classes is the incorporation and importance of breath, meditation, alignment and mindful awareness. Our Yoga Community is welcoming, nurturing and consists of students practicing at all different levels. The yogis physical practice is just a part of what we offer during our teachings. With all of our classes at The Studio we ask you to practice both the Yamas (social abstentions) and Niyamas (personal observances) as we come together to share a safe and supportive space. ~ Namaste ~
Gentle yoga is a class structured around rejuvenating and healing the body.

Although this class is geared toward beginners whith little or no prior yoga experience those with experience can benefit from revisiting essential alignment, flow and breath-work principles. This class is not affiliated with any one style of yoga as it provides students with the building blocks to comfortably access any styles of practice. It is recommended (though not required) that students new to yoga attend this class before a moderate flow class. This class will also provide students with basic fundamentals of yoga such as Ujjayi breathing, use of the bandhas (core locks), and drishti (gazing point). History of the practice and potential benefits will be briefly introduced. Beginning postures will be taught at a slow pace so that students can learn proper alignment. This intro class is suitable for students who have never taken a yoga class or for those wanting to deepen their understanding of yoga.
