As a first time student at the Studio we recommend that you try either a Foundation or Gentle Yoga class. All of our teachers are accustomed to welcoming and integrating new students into their classes at any point in the term. You will receive the instruction that you need as a new student in order to feel comfortable in the class.
Gentle Yoga 45 minutes
Gentle Yoga is for students who prefer to go very slowly for a variety of reasons. Some people find a slower quieter class meditative, some of us need to ease ourselves into physical activity some have a specific injury or a specific condition that requires a gentler approach to the body. The gentle class introduces those who have not practiced yoga before to some of the poses and is also suitable for someone who wants/needs to take things easy, but not spend the whole time in relaxation.
Vinyasa Yoga Flows 60 minutes
Vinyasa is a flowing sequence connecting the breath with movement. Learning the basics of foundation in our Gentle Yoga or Slow Flow classes is best before doing flow yoga, which requires good health and strength. Flow increases flexibility and stamina. Vinyasa Flow series links movement with the breath to flow from one pose to the next.. Fire & Ice Flow is demanding, involving numerous weight bearing positions for hands & arms. Fire & Ice is held in a heater room of 80 degrees F. In this class we cultivate an inner fire with invigorating sequences, then contain the fire with balancing poses, and longer holds. The class always ends with grounding restorative poses to cool and sooth the body and mind. Beginners try our Slow Flow which takes our Vinyasa Flow sequence to a much slower pace and includes modifications and assistance with yoga props.
