VINYASA

Vinyasa is an approach to yoga in which you move from one pose directly into the next. There's a flow to a Vinyasa yoga session, though the specific poses and the pace of the flow vary from one instructor to the next. Vinyasa Flow helps build and maintain strong bones, muscles and connective tissue to maintain a high metabolism, healthy posture, and an active and alive body.

YIN

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced, therapeutic style of yoga. Yin postures are more passive postures, mainly done on the floor either seated or lying down. There are no sun salutations, no planks, no warriors, no jump throughs! Yin yoga stretches and targets both the deep connective tissues between the muscles, and the fascia throughout the body. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility.

RESTORATIVE

As the name suggests, this style of yoga “restores” the body to its parasympathetic nervous system function, which, in turn, helps the body rest, heal, and restore balance. By allowing time for longer asanas (postures or poses) and deeper breathing, restorative yoga helps elicit the relaxation response. This style is offered with hands-on healing assists to further restore the mind, body + spirit.

MEDITATION

Meditation is one of the limbs of yoga. In the practice of meditation, we train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state with the goal of bringing this mental state into our regular lives. We offer meditation as a singular practice or in conjunction with movement. We also offer a certification in meditation for those interested in deepening their practice.
