VINYASA FLOW Vinyasa is a Sanskrit term often employed to describe a broad range of yoga styles.
Vinyasa can be decoded from its root words Nyasa denoting "to place" and vi denoting "in a special way."
It symbolizes a flowing, dynamic form of yoga, where postures are linked together using breath.
FLOW BASICS: A great class for beginners, Flow Basics is a Vinyasa yoga with a slower-paced flow than Power Yoga Flow. Postures are broken down (demonstrated), and instructors lead the flow at a deliberate pace with an emphasis on alignment and breath. An interactive class, students are encouraged to ask questions and explore the postures as they are ready. A great place to start your Flow Power Yoga journey.
POWER YOGA FLOW:
Set to music, this class will invigorate your entire body. Power Flow Yoga classes are based on a challenging and dynamic, alignment- based Vinyasa style connecting breath to one movement. Come prepared to explore your body and take on new challenges with invitations to experiment with moderate to rapid movement through sun salutations and longer holds in various asanas such as arm balances, inversions, twists, backbends, hip openers and more. It is built to inspire joy, mindfulness and cultivate strength and support from within. There will be modifications and variations offered for all poses so that the intensity and challenge is up to the individual. This class generally derives influences from a blend of traditions (for example -Jivamukti, Anusara, Ashtanga and Iyengar and more) with no predetermined sequence.
SLOW FLOW- slower vinyasa style class. Suitable for recovering from injury, pre/postnatal (with modifications), beginners, or those who just want a slow flow.
PRENATAL YOGA FLOW- similar to a Power Basics or Slow Flow class, but with modifications for pregnancy. Focus on poses and breath that help open and strengthen areas for all stages of pregnancy.
UNIVERSAL FLOW This is an Anusara Yoga influenced class -a powerful method of hatha yoga which integrates biomechanical principles of alignment with the celebration of the heart and spirit. Anusara yoga offers a dynamic synthesis of asana technique, yoga philosophy, and the celebration of good company.
BUDOKON YOGA FLOW Budokon's dynamic blend of traditional yoga asana and martial arts builds upon the practitioner's base knowledge of traditional Hatha yoga while challenging the practitioner to push past conventional yoga practices. If you love power or vinyasa flow yoga and want to see their evolutionary potential this class is for you. This class opens hips and shoulders while cultivating a powerful core.
HATHA YOGA Hatha Yoga is often slower moving than a Power Yoga practice but it can be challenging, stimulating or soft, depending on the circumstances. The integration of breath while holding poses for long periods of time with intention and relaxation comprise this branch of practice that encompasses and integrates many forms.
BASICS & RESTORE - A combination of Basics & Restorative. Basics- A strong emphasis on foundation integrated with demonstration of form and alignment to create a safe, positive and empowering experience. Ideal for the beginner as well as the experienced practitioner to review technical principles. + Restorative - This is the application of Yoga practice using props and postures held for longer periods of time to initiate deep relaxation of the body, mind and spirit. Slow Restorative Yoga is beneficial to balance a more active practice or decompress after a stressful day.
YIN RESTORE The essence of Yin Yoga is surrender. To balance the heat-building, blood-pumping, strengthening "yang" side of a Power Yoga Flow, Yin focuses on postures that lengthen the muscles surrounding the hips, pelvis, and lower back. Students typically hold these postures for 3-10 minutes per side in order to lengthen the connective tissue that surrounds the joints and increase its elasticity. The elasticity of our connective tissue diminishes with physical activity and aging, which makes Yin essential for injury prevention and joint health. Since a Yin Yoga practice often includes several long, seated forward bending postures, it also restores energy and calms the nervous system. Pure bliss! Students also use props and hold postures for longer periods of time to initiate deep relaxation of the body, mind and spirit. Slow Restorative Yoga is beneficial to balance a more active practice or decompress after a stressful day.
YOGA SCULPT is a total body workout designed to tone and sculpt every major muscle group. Your own body weight and/or dumbbells serve as your own personal adjuster as you move through vinyasa flow and other yoga postures, enabling extra length and depth in each pose.
