Essential Yoga explores the foundations of Hatha Yoga practice by systematically introducing the most basic yoga asanas (postures) and stretches. Emphasis is placed on proper alignment of the body in yoga poses, as well as on breathing and relaxation techniques. Participants will learn methods that are helpful in calming the nervous system, keeping the mind and body healthy, and developing strength, flexibility, and balance.
This class is for those who are new to yoga, or for those with more experience but who would like an opportunity to review alignment, basic breathing techniques, and relaxation methods, thus enhancing their current practice.
This gentle class moves at a slower pace, through a series of stretches and postures that are suitable for a beginning practitioner or for someone recovering from injury. Focus is placed on moving the joints in a healthy way to improve flexibility. Attention is given to each individual's needs, allowing students to work gently and comfortably with their own bodies. Breathing and relaxation techniques leave the practitioner feeling refreshed and relaxed.
Restorative yoga helps to trigger the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS), which is responsible for: relaxing and recuperating, reducing stress response, and increasing positive emotional feelings. This practice is designed to refresh the nervous system and help release deeply held tensions from the body and mind.
The class begins with a Gentle Vinyasa, calm flowing postures designed to warm the muscles and prepare the mind and body to unwind. Next, the Restorative Yoga focuses on relaxing the body in restful postures. Props are used to support the postures, while gently stretching and relaxing the body.
This class is appropriate for students of all levels.

Class is appropriate for beginners and seasoned yogis, as variations will be offered.
This class will move through flowing sequences at a slow, mindful pace, one which helps the student to cultivate deep awareness of the body and breathing. Students will be encouraged to let the breath guide them through a series of graceful movements which encourage a sense of ease and peacefulness in both body and mind. Class may include some exploration of restorative poses, using props to support the body in deeper, longer-held poses. This class is suitable for practitioners of all levels including those accustomed to a more gentle class.
In this class we will explore the way longer hold times in supported poses helps to bring energy to the joints, ligaments, and tendons in the body, encouraging a release of both physical and emotional tension. Yin yoga works specifically with the connective tissue to bring more blood flow to the region and increase flexibility. It is also mentally relaxing as it helps the practitioner cultivate inner awareness and a deep sense of peace though its meditative qualities.
