Class Descriptions

INSTRUCTOR: STEPHEN

CLASSES:  Expansion, Relax and Restore; Open the Hips;
Mindful and Deep; Strong and Long; Mindful Movement

This collection of classes are described in broad themes but experienced with a deep and focused attention. Each student is encouraged to cultivate a patient, compassionate approach to the practice while playing along the edge of their current boundaries. All are encouraged and assisted in adapting poses to respect any existing restrictions or pain patterns. Each individual can then work safely at a depth and pace that their body is willing to accommodate and able to integrate. This approach to practice leads to a softening of our defensive armoring and enables deeper levels of connection to occur. With a steady practice old habitual patterns fall away to be replaced with new ones that better serve us. A willingness to explore is all that’s required to attend these classes although a sense of humor is always helpful.

CLASS:  Therapeutic

Designed for those wanting to strengthen as well as those with limited range of motion, pain or dysfunction, we will work at an appropriate level and pace as we explore movements and breath that bring strength, integrity and freedom to the neck, shoulders, upper back and low back. Regardless of size, shape or current level of fitness, Therapeutic Yoga is yoga anyone can safely participate in and benefit from.

INSTRUCTOR: REN

CLASS:  Bowspring Forward

The Bowspring is a postural template that can be applied universally to any yoga pose, athletic movement, or any functional posture for optimal performance. Designed for those wanting to strengthen as well as those with limited range of motion or pain, we will work at an appropriate level and pace as we explore movements and breath that bring strength, integrity and freedom to the body-mind. Each student will be encouraged to cultivate a patient, compassionate approach to the practice while playing along the edge of their current boundaries, being respectful of any existing restrictions or pain patterns. The goal with this class is to offer a steady practice where old habitual patterns fall away, to be replaced with new ones that better serve us. The Bowspring alignment technology is accessible for people of all ages and fitness levels; this powerful postural template converts the most common daily positions of sitting and standing from heavy, static poses into light, dynamic positions full of the spring and fluidity of life.

All levels welcome.

Warning: Yoga is transformational.
If you want to stay as you are, don’t practice yoga.
