Introduction to Ashtanga Method
You will be guided through the entire standing sequence and most of the seated sequence (as time allows) in a manner suitable for all ages and levels of fitness. No prior yoga experience is necessary. Learn the basics of Ashtanga in a safe and supported environment. Practice the basic technique for breathing and movement (vinyasa), meditative gazing (drishti), and internal energy locks (bandha).
This class is designed to give you the tools needed to build strength and flexibility while focusing on specific yoga poses. Expect a challenging class that targets different body parts such as hips, core, shoulders and more! This class often includes use of props such as Yoga blocks, straps, access to a wall and more.
Yin yoga targets deep connective tissues, like fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones and helps us stretch and lengthen rarely used tissues while also teaching us how to breathe through discomfort and sit with thoughts.
Expect Meditation, Pranayama, Chanting, & tapping practices alternating each week. This is a yoga practice involving mental focus and breathing techniques to train our body to move optimally, not just while on the mat but also in everyday life. Holding poses longer gives us space to turn inward and tune into both mind and physical sensations. Become more aware of your body and sensations as you progress through these sessions. The last 15-30 minutes of class are dedicated to complete relaxation while bathing in the vibrations of Tibetan and crystal singing bowls.
