With a focus on proper alignment of postures, students build body awareness and learn to develop a safe and healthy practice. Students are led to hold standing and seated postures to gradually build strength and flexibility, to open the body, and to develop good breathing practices. Students practice with a good foundation and gradually build a body vocabulary awareness through poses and movement upon which to explore new postures.
Students learn to synchronize breath with movement as they move, with integrity, from one posture to the next. Considered a more vigorous practice, vinyasa yoga warms the body and prepares it for more intense postures. A good foundation of breathing, grounding, engagement, and alignment is necessary to ensure a safe and healthy practice.
gentle hatha yoga
A gentler practice with the intention of holding simpler and/or modified postures creates more space to extend the breath. A far cry from a sweaty practice, gentle hatha still operates under the same principles of grounding, engaging, lengthening, and breath. However, movements are slow and postures are more accessible in order to focus on improving breath.
Using a chair, along with other yoga props, provides a little more support and stability to gently and safely build strength, flexibility, balance, and confidence in poses that otherwise may be too difficult for some students to do. Lessons are specifically tailored to modify poses, making yoga practice more accessible. This class is highly recommended for seniors, those with mobility and balance concerns, and those who want to very gradually build strength and flexibility.
