level 1 yoga
Our level 1 classes are learning experiences in which you will literally re-discover your body, how it works, and what it can do. All level 1 classes are designed to give you the time and support to understand the proper alignment of Yoga asanas (postures) and breathing technique.
You will begin by focusing on the basics, but it won’t stop there. Level 1 is always exciting because in every class you learn and do something new. Even the most advanced yogi will benefit from this class. Beginner class teachers are experts at helping you master form, understand how to breathe, and help you build confidence in the postures and experience the wonders of Yoga.
Vinyasa is movement. Flow from pose to pose all linked by the breath. This class is designed to take you to the intermediate level where you will expand on your strength, stamina and flexibility as you master more advanced postures (inversions, backbends) and more demanding sequences. Level 2 classes will help you take your practice to a whole new level while adding power. Some knowledge of yoga poses is required.
Level 2-3 classes presume students are familiar with intermediate yoga postures, yet we always welcome students to try all classes out. Just go at your own pace. In these classes you will use your knowledge of postures and breathing to practice exciting, physically demanding and challenging sequences and variations. The pace of these classes is faster, you will go deeper, and your teacher will help you achieve breakthroughs in your practice and your self-awareness. Expect to generate some good body heat in these classes.
Ancient system of yoga. This will be our Intro to Ashtanga. Ashtanga can transform the practitioner’s body, mind, and soul. We will be teaching the Primary Series which strenghtens and purifies the body through a sequence of poses. According to Shri K Pattabhi Jois, “Ashtanga yoga is for all people- old people, young people, fat people, skinny people-only, not lazy people.” Link your mind and body through breath, postures and gaze. Think Vinyasa, with a little Power.
Kundalini Yoga, called the Yoga of Awareness, is said to be 16 times more powerful than traditional hatha yoga and works directly with “Kundalini” which is the energy of pure, creative potential that normally lies dormant at the base of the spine. Benefits of Kundalini Yoga:
- The functioning of the lungs is also improved by this yoga.
- It also helps to increase the circulation of blood, lymph and other fluids of the body.
- Performing this yoga regularly brings natural joy and pleasure to life.
- Kundalini yoga alleviates mental and physical stress related to a number of life activities.
- It strengthens the immune system and nervous system as well as balances the emotions.
- Kundalini yoga uses a dynamic blend of postures, breathing, mantra (sacred sound), music and meditation to awaken Kundalini energy promoting relaxation, self-healing on all levels, and elevation. As kundalini awakens, all chakras and energy centers are cleared and all systems of the body become balanced. All levels are welcome.
