Balanced Body Yoga
This class conveys the authentic spirit of yoga and does so in a commonsense practice accessible to everyone. You don’t need the body of an athlete or the lifestyle of a monk to benefit from yoga. Improve flexibility and strength throughout your entire body while you choose the level of physical intensity that’s right for you. It recognizes that everybody is different and you are encouraged to listen to your own body. Your teacher draws on her depth of knowledge as both a physical therapist and yoga teacher, to apply the art of sequencing a practice using breath work and relaxation with the science of alignment concepts, to guide your body into balance. This is a perfect class for anyone wanting a well rounded yoga class to develop strength and flexibility in a safe manner.
An energizing and well-rounded class that engages the body in flexibility, strength, and balance. Classes include flow sequences or vinyasas. The word “vinyasa” can be translated as “arranging something in a special way,” such as yoga poses. In vinyasa, or flow yoga, students coordinate movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next. There is a creative, rhythmic feel about the class, which immerses you in the practice. This class will give you a whole body workout and leave you feeling calm in mind.
