Types of Classes:

Yoga Basics


  New to yoga?  Feeling intimidated by the idea of starting yoga?  Have particular challenges that may limit you, or just want a refresher on the essentials?


  Yoga Basics classes are designed to break down each movement, and ensure we're starting from a stable base.   Classes are designed to teach the basics of Hatha-style yoga - creating a strong, safe foundation to explore your practice from.    



All-levels Hatha

  

A perfect way to slow down, breathe, and reconnect with yourself - and others.  In an all-levels Hatha style, your teacher will lead you through basic, foundation - style classes, with a focus on increasing stability, strength, and flexibility.  


  Hatha Yoga combines all the numerous benefits of yoga, from the physical to the mental benefits, and everything in between.  Suitable for all levels.


Warm Yin


Yin Yoga is designed to be the ultimate "let go" class.  


Done at a slow,  gentle pace, poses in Yin yoga are usually held for longer periods of time, in order to allow a maximum soft tissue release.   The space is heated up to warm, comfortable temperature, to further enhance the release of your muscles, tendons,  and joints - easing away stress, whether it be physical, mental, or emotional.

Private sessions - One-on-One


  Private, one-on-one sessions allow the time and space to effectively address any specific goals or challenges (eg injury recovery/rehab, poor balance) you may have.

  Lesson plans are created and specialized by your teacher, for you, for that week - so whether it's been a tough week, and you need to simply relax, or that low back has really been bothering you - a private session may be just what you need.



Common reasons for choosing a private session:

  • Wanting to address or manage a specific challenge(s) or condition(s) -  poor balance; specific injury; headaches; insomnia; low back pain; fibromyalgia; anxiety; etc.

  • Feeling the need for an individualized lesson plan focusing on your own particular goals (for example, as part of a training plan for a 5k/10k race, triathalon; wanting to increase stability/mobility/flexibility; etc).

  • Because you just want the privacy and attention offered by a private session!
