Beginners that prefer a slower, more gentle pace

Are you a beginner or new to yoga?

Do you feel like you are currently out-of-shape?

Do you have some aches & pains, some physical limitations or major injuries?

Or do you simply just prefer a slower paced class where you have longer time in the poses?

Below are the classes that will be suit you if you answered yes to these questions.

Hatha

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.

Yin & Yang

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. It 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.

Gentle Yoga

Gentle Yoga is a class with postures that are designed for everyone, including seniors. The pace of this class is slower, incorporating range of movement exercises, alignment, stretching, strengthening, breathing and relaxation to refresh, and energize. These movements will increase circulation, improve posture, relieve tension in the body, and create a sense of well-being. Great for beginners or anyone that loves a slower paced yoga class.
