THE MORE WE PRACTICE THE MORE WE CONNECT BACK TO OURSELVES. GOING INWARD BEFORE WE MOVE OUTWARD
MOVEMENT AS MEDITATION IS A BEAUTIFUL COMPLIMENT TO MEDITATION IN STILLNESS
JOIN ME AT A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT STYLES OF CLASSES THROUGHOUT THE CITY
The word “ha” means sun and “ta” means moon. Hatha is a yoga to bring balance between our inner sun and moon, and a place from where we begin to prepare for a higher possibility! This class follows a slower pace; we take time in each pose, and build upon our strengths, to create a balanced experience physically, mentally and spiritually.
Soulful and candlelit, Slow Flow classes integrate the composition of strong yoga poses with the gentle ease of flowing movement and inward reflection. Slow Flow is inspired by Vinyasa but encourages individualized, creative and mindful movement through ambitious but playful sequencing. Moving at a reduced, deliberate pace means practitioners are challenged to fully engage mentally and physically while holding poses for longer periods of time. Poses and transitions are linked fluidly with the breath and emphasis is placed on moving gradually, gracefully and purposefully to develop strength of body and mind. Open to all levels.
The class aims to increase strength + mobility by holding poses and balances for longer periods of time, finding connection with the breath, and then introducing fluid and dynamic movement. Deep stretches are also included to lengthen muscles and improve flexibility, during which we bring focus to the breath and work on quieting the mind. In this combination of stretch, gentle movement, and body awareness we will leave feeling refreshed, balanced, and relaxed. Open to all levels.
STRETCH + SLOW FLOW
This soft approach to yoga guides the body into a place of ease, calming the mind and reducing stress. Flowing through light poses for body fluidity followed by deep stretching. Increasing functional mobility of the deeper connective tissues, encouraging flexibility in areas like the hips, lower spine and pelvis. A slow and meditative class geared towards opening the body and stilling the mind. Open to all levels, A wonderful balance to your active yoga classes.
This class begins in stillness, aligning the body and mind in meditation. From there, we find gentle movements that feel good and intuitive to the body. After we have brought life and breath to all parts of our being through fluid movement, we come back to stillness and close the practice with meditation. This is a low impact class that is respectful to both the body and mind.
RESTORATIVE + REIKI
Relax, restore, and allow your body to settle completely. In this class we focus on a combination of supported poses designed to calm the mind and central nervous system, and allow your body to return to a natural state of relaxation. In addition, we experience the enriching benefits of Reiki. Reiki is a holistic, light touch, energy-based modality that assists in establishing a normal flow of energy in the body, enhancing the body's innate healing ability. This class will be a calm, soft space when you are feeling low on energy or in need of balance, as you will leave feeling refreshed, rested, and deeply relaxed. (Restorative is also offered without the addition of Reiki).
The movement: A ride. Mindful connection is necessary as the high pace of this class requires full attention. Yoga, Pilates and dance flow into one long sequence. Sound vibration helps to clear out the burn.
Where you’ll feel it most: Full-body, especially the heart.
The movement: Movement in the name of joy!!!! Jazzercize and grapevines to feed the heart. Cult classic music encourages full body moves, fun sequences to get your heart rate up and sweat ON.
Where you’ll feel it most: Heart and full-body.
Intensity: This is a wild ride, a movement party! For those of you who love to yell and scream and have a good 'ol time – this one is for YOU.
A Meditative Movement workshop. We’ll start by finding stillness, and settling into a sensory meditation, which will help you to find a place of peace and calm within. From there, we find gentle movements that feel good and intuitive to the body. After we have brought life & breath to all parts of our being through fluid movement, we come back to stillness. Closing the practice with some restorative + nourishing poses, personalized Reiki (energy work), a guided body scan meditation, and sound bath.
ROOT + RELEASE
We will begin with a deeply nourishing and grounding meditation to calm, to collect our thoughts and to encourage our feelings of connection so that we might begin to open up. Then we set our intentions and, together, take a journey to unpack the things that are holding us back, everything that’s stuck. Using breath, sound and movement we release what is no longer serving us, no longer lighting us up. It’s a time to heal old wounds, to grow past our fears and surrender to the bigger picture of our lives. We begin to break patterns and rebuild. This visceral experience combines yoga, Pilates, movement and meditation.
