This alignment-based class will move with a mindful component of breath and intention but require a little more physical exertion. Each class aims to be a beautiful blend of challenge and ease as you move from pose to pose. Options to modify or amplify are given to practitioners! Inversions and/or arm balances are often weaved into the sequencing to bring an added element of playfulness. This class will leave you feeling more present, grounded, and at ease in body and mind.
What you need: a mat and one block
Additional props that are helpful: blankets, additional yoga block (or creative alternative), and yoga strap (hand towel/belt)
Relax + Restore Yoga
Relax + restore starts with 25 minutes of slow movement to gently warm the body, followed by longer held passive postures in order to relax the body. Inspired by Restorative Yoga, we use yoga props to support the passive postures so you can let go and not have to control the experience. This is a great class for anyone looking to release tension and reduce stress.
Setting up your room space with dimmer lights/candlelight feel can help aid in the relaxation experience!
Recommended props: yoga blocks, bolster, strap, and blanket. No props? Grab a pillow, blanket and a few rolled up towels.
Yin Inspired Deep Stretch
Yin Yoga is a style of yoga in which poses, mostly seated, are held for 2 to 5 minutes. The longer holds allow for a healthy stress to connective tissue and fascia to release, relax, and become longer and stronger increasing mobility and flexibility in the body. Holding poses for longer lengths of time allows for pockets of quiet for meditation and promoting a more contemplative, non-reactive quality of mind.
Yin Yoga is a non-flow style perfect for all ages and levels.
What you need: a mat, 1-2 blankets, and a pillow or bolster.
Additional props that are helpful: blankets, yoga blocks (or creative alternative), and yoga strap (hand towel/belt)
