Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga focuses on the slow, patient, opening of the fascial layer of the body. The fascia is the connective tissue (shrink wrap) that underlies the skin, wraps the muscles, holds the bones together and is the conduit for the meridians through which energy flows. Over time chronic tightness of this layer causes stiffness and inflexibility restricting mobility and energy flow. Fascia responds differently than muscle and requires this slow approach to facilitate opening. This is a deeply meditative practice. No prior yoga experience is required.

 

Gentle Yoga

This is a slow-paced Gentle Stretch Yoga class focusing on asanas that are mild but are deeply effective and meditative. In these classes, poses are sequenced to create comfort in the body and mind. Students stay close to the mat, often supporting the body with props to release tightness and restore energy without using excessive effort or fighting gravity. Gentle Yoga is appropriate for students of all levels from beginners to advanced, including athletes, people in search of stress-relief, and seniors.

Urban Calisthenics
It's not scary, anybody can do it!

Urban Calisthenics was originally a form of street workout where individuals and groups would perform exercise routines in urban areas. Individuals and groups train to be able to perform advanced calisthenics skills such as muscle ups, bars spins and both front and back levers.Structured progressive calisthenics can give you the strength gains, muscle growth, and fat loss you want while protecting your joints and conditioning your body naturally. Calisthenics is rapidly becoming a much more popular way of training because it's a great way to build balanced strength using the weight of YOUR body. You learn how to set your own goals and take each moment as it comes. We are each a work in progress so just start from where you are and enjoy the ride!


Core Foundations

 What is your core?  Quite a few people think that your core is just your abs, a six pack. The major muscles of the core are located in the area of the belly and mid to lower back (not the shoulders). It's basically the front and back of the body under the breast to mid thigh. Your core is the most important part of you!  Core is your center of gravity and where all body movements begin. Functional movements are highly dependent on this part of the body and lack of strength can result in injury.  A strong core can help prevent lower back pain and maintain balance. Your core helps control and stabilize the spinal column and is important for posture.

This Abs and Core class is designed to focus on stabilization, endurance and strengthening your core muscles.  It is a sixty minute class, consisting of a ten minute warm up, forty minutes of abs and core exercises, and then a ten minute stretch.  This versatile class will be for beginner, intermediate and advanced individuals.  All exercises will be based on progression based on your fitness level and can be modified individually.




Kid Yoga

Is now a regular class!

Kids aren’t always as excited as we are about mindfulness practices, like meditation and yoga. But children have a lot to gain from learning how to cultivate mindfulness on their own.

Giving kids the tools to help them fend off negative thoughts and behaviors, build self-confidence, focus, and treat others and themselves with respect and appreciation is a gift they will have for the rest of their lives.

Mindfulness programs are popping up in schools nationwide, and studies are surfacing that reveal their positive impact on academic performance, stress levels, and emotional maturity.
