Vinyasa II-III - Saturday 8:00am

Vinyasa II-III    

Each practice begins with awareness of our breath, creating a connection to fuel the focus of the mind and to fuel the power and flexibility of the body. Many athletes do not use the full capacity of their breath and thus limit their performance.

Emphasis is on safe alignment for building strength to develop core, legs, arm, shoulder, and back strength. These elements help prevent injuries and balance the front and back of muscle groups.

Learn to bring your practice from your center, that place of comfort and stability.

Class with Lynda
Level II, III
Time about 75 minutes.

From the doctor on Back Pain.
Doctors now realize that lying around is actually counterproductive, leading to a decrease in conditioning and an increase in pain. The longer you stay in bed the more muscle mass you lose (up to 3 percent per day) and the resulting loss of strength can interfere with your rehabilitation, and force you to overwork other muscles to compensate. Rather than babying a back injury, doctors now recommend people start gentle activities the first day.

CoreYo - Wednesdays 5:15pm

CoreYo 

Reach deep into the full core. Our core is not just that search for the six pack in the front of the belly.

Are you ready for the challenge!

Yin Yoga (was Wed) - now offered Monday mornings

Yin Yoga
The other side of your yoga practice.

A focus on feeling…..
Slow down and come back into balance…..
Perfect for the committed athlete……

Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles and is suitable for almost all levels of students*. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues (such as the ligaments; bones, and even the joints of the body) that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice.

While initially this style of yoga can seem boring, passive, or soft, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from five breaths to several minutes! Yin and yang tissues respond quite differently to being exercised. You need to experience this to really know what Yin Yoga is all about. After you have experienced it, even just once, you will realize that you have been doing only half of the asana practice.

Yin Yoga postures put the mind and body in a blissful state of peace and calm. Return to the world refreshed, renewed, and centered.
