Vinyasa Flow – All

vinyasa flow - all levels

Postures or asanas are connected through the breath for a transformative and balancing effect, helping you to de-stress, detox and rejuvenate. We will build heat, endurance, flexibility and strength while incorporating standing and seated postures, forward and backbends, hip openers, twists and balancing poses. You will feel energized, de-stressed and fantastic! Open to all levels of practice and abilities. Please note that every teacher brings her/his own style, pace and creativity to their classes, so no Vinyasa Flow class is the same. We have purposely not reinvented different class names for each teacher to keep it simple – after all yoga is yoga. 

Vinyasa Flow 2

vinyasa flow 2

Open to yogis with 6 months minimum flow practice and without physical limitations. Vinyasa Flow Level 2 classes are like a dynamic invigorating sun salutation dance. Postures or asanas are connected through the breath for a transformative and balancing effect, helping you to de-stress, detox and rejuvenate. Classes build heat, endurance, flexibility and strength while incorporating standing and seated postures, forward and backbends, hip openers, twists and balancing poses. These classes will involve learning arm balances and inversions in a safe environment. Join us for a some fun as we explore the next level of your asana practice. Please note, Wednesday’s 20h15 class will be a more challenging. 

Hatha

hatha yoga

Hatha yoga is a class where you will be challenged with more static poses – working the alignment in detail, building heat and stamina. There might be a bit of flow occasionally, but generally this slower class will give you the ability to go deeper in the postures – working your alignment, stretching and strengthening. These movements will increase circulation, improve posture, relieve tension in the body, and create a sense of well-being. Breathing, relaxation and meditation techniques will be practiced to make this a well rounded yoga class. Great for beginners or anyone that loves a slower paced yoga class. 

Beginner’s Yoga

yin & yang yoga

Beginner’s yoga is for anyone that would like to start a yoga practice but they just don’t know where to start. You will learn the basic poses and how to destress by using your breath and training your mind & body to relax. These movements will increase circulation, improve posture, relieve tension in the body, and create a sense of well-being. In this class you will feel comfortable that everyone is in the ‘same shoes’ as you. We were all beginners once in everything we do – so just start and enjoy the journey.

Yin & Yang

yin & yang yoga

This class begins with Yin Yoga, a passive form of yoga that helps move Chi through the meridian lines, and over time stretches the deeper connective tissues of the body. At other times we may begin with Myofascial Release that will help you to release tension, knots and break up scar tissue in the fascia system. It is similar to self-massage ⎼ improving your muscular performance and your overall well-being.  The class then moves into a strength building practice with a focus on slow flow and alignment. Sometimes we will mix it up and start with a bit of yang before yin, then yang again, ending with a deep relaxation and meditation. Great for beginners or anyone that loves a slower paced yoga class with a bit of flow.

Yin Yoga

yin yoga

Suitable for complete beginners or anyone with issues in the body. Yin is a slow-paced class with postures or asanas that are held for longer periods of time, mainly performed on the floor. Through gravity, the yin poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility which is so necessary as we tend to lose flexibility as we get older. Yin poses open up the nadis channels (energy lines) in the body, improving organ health, immunity, and emotional well-being. These classes, to which we will also add a number of meditative, pranayama (breathing) and restorative practices, are perfect for people who feel stiff in their bodies (either from too much sitting – or too much “physical workout”). Whether you are a complete beginner or more experienced yogi, you will leave completely relaxed – physically and mentally. Additional Myofascial Release work will be integrated into classes that are taught by Jennifer Crisman. Myofascial Release will help you to release tension, knots and break up scar tissue in the fascia system. It is similar to self-massage ⎼ improving your muscular performance and your overall well-being. 

BarreYoga

gentle hatha yoga

BarreYoga is a full body workout, empowering and strengthening both your body and mind thanks to a harmonious combination of the techniques used in Ballet, Fitness and predominantly in Yoga. The class begins with a Vinyasa Yoga inspired floor work on the mat. Once all muscular chains are awakened, Barre workout takes place. This part of the class is mainly inspired by Ballet, as we will be using Barres to work on balance techniques, as well as lower body strengthening.

The class goes on with core work, mainly based on Fitness techniques done either on the mat or with the support of the Barres. Finally, each class ends with stretching exercises on the floor or with the support of the Barres and a lead relaxation.

As we explore the different dimensions of movement, we will build up strong yet lean and functional muscles as well as coordination, balance and grace. It is open to everyone wishing to improve their muscular performance, deepen their flexibility and improve their stamina.

MFR – Myofascial Release

gentle hatha yoga

Myofascial Release (MFR) is like giving yourself a massage. Using foam rollers and balls to put pressure on trigger points releasing stress, tension and knots in the body. This stimulates the fascia to produce more collagen and hyaluronic acid and regenerate itself. It has been extremely successful in treating all levels of pain, helping restore function, mobility and improving overall health and increasing your range of motion i.e. your flexibility.  You will leave the MFR class relaxed, as if you had a nice massage by a therapist. Check out this short video description by Jennifer Crisman.

Pre-Natal (please join Yin, Hatha or Yin&Yang)

gentle hatha yoga

Due to the irregularity of pregnancy, it is too difficult for us to maintain a Pre-natal class. But this doesn’t mean that you have to stop or can’t start a yoga practice. We encourage Pregnant and Post-natal women to join any Yin, Hatha or Yin  &Yang class. These classes are slower paced to allow you time to go inward and connect to yourself and your baby.

Kids Yoga (5-10yrs)

kids yoga

Yoga is a great way for kids to increase awareness of themselves, others and the world, while having fun! Yoga is a wonderful way for children to stay (or become) confident, strong, balanced and healthy. Yoga engages a child’s natural boundless energy and conveys valuable lessons in positive thinking, body and mind awareness. Each class is alive with magical journeys where we meet with animals, fly an airplane or drive a car, grow into a tree or imitate the ocean waves, all in the form of dynamic yoga poses.This class is best for kids 5-10yrs, but other ages are welcome to try and see if it suits them. This class is taught in English and French by Anna Svensson.

Teen Yoga (10-16yrs)

pre-teen yoga

Expanding minds and maturing bodies come together through independent and group activities that stimulate teens’ physical strength, emotional balance and self-confidence. Classes integrate traditional yoga poses, flowing sequences, breathing exercises, relaxation and meditation techniques as well as self-reflection. This course will also give them some tools for dealing with their everyday tasks in a more relaxing way, make them feel empowered and more confident with their bodies, stimulate their imagination, raise their awareness on peace and treating their body gently… all the while having fun and helping them find their own way towards stillness :-). This class is more like an adult yoga class and is best for kids 10-16 yrs, but other ages are welcome to try and see if it suits them. It is taught in English but French translation is possible. 

Family Yoga (5-10yrs)

family yoga

Is your daughter or son inspired by your yoga practice and tries to imitate you? Why not share your love of yoga with them in this fun animated themed class. You will be lead on a magical journey to explore different lands around the world, while meeting many animals along the way. Parents and kids will bring these animals to life via animated yoga poses with some occasional partner poses sprinkled in for some added fun! The use of animated poses and basic stretching exercises promote strength, flexibility, coordination and body awareness. Breathing and visualization techniques teach kids how to focus, relax and develop self-control. This class is best suited for 5-10 year olds but younger children are welcome from 3yrs and older siblings too until 13yrs. This class is taught in English by Lynn Frank.

It’s so nice to be back on the mat with you again. I’m so glad we can start in September immediately. I also want to thank you to give us all lots of options of the plans to choose from and great rate too!
