A vinyasa flow class that is designed to open up your hips, which facilitate in releasing emotions. Like the junk drawer in your house, the hips are where negative emotions, such as stress, fear, and sadness are energetically held. Supple hips can ease back pain, give you a more agile gait, and may improve circulation in your legs. You will come out of this class feeling open, both physically and mentally; ready to enjoy the remainder of your day without carrying any of the extra stress or baggage you might have entered the studio with before your ‘Hipster’ hot yoga class. Always challenging, yet always suitable and essential for every yogi.
Just like mom’s lunchbox, you’re just not sure what you’re going to get. And although you won’t be able to trade sandwiches with your fellow classmates you’ll definitely come out feeling restored, rejuvenated, and ready to carry on with the rest of your day. This hot yoga class is only 50 min. so you’ll have plenty of time to scarf down your own lunchbox in our lounge before you return to work.
JOGA is an athletic based style of yoga that incorporates a unique blend of postures to find balance in strength and flexibility, a variety of breathing techniques to improve breath control/recovery and relaxation tools to maintain a calm mind in sport and in life. The sessions leave students feeling stronger, more flexible and re-energized as well as providing them with all the other physiological and psychological benefits of yoga. JOGA is ideal for professional and amateur athletes as well as active individuals across all sports (UNHEATED).
Rejuvenate the body with this blended sequence of Yin/Restorative yoga. Beginning with deep stretches designed to target the deep connective tissues, increase flexibility and open the meridians of the body. Followed by a relaxing restorative sequence that will softly unfold the body to ensure complete relaxation into the postures. Come away feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and restored.
Freestyle is a Baptiste-based class with a twist! Be prepared to be challenged and inspired! Sequences will include sun saluations, standing, balancing, seated and twisting postures and may even include introductions to arm balances and inversions. Freestyle is not a set series, allowing instructors the freedom to play with alignment and movement.
Yin is a powerful hot yoga practice which targets joints, tendons, ligaments, and fascia within the body. Each posture is held for long periods of time to encourage the slow and safe opening of connective tissues, leaving the yogi with an overall feeling of lightness, spaciousness and peace. The Yin hot yoga class is the perfect antidote to stress and a great counter balance to more active styles of yoga (ie. Power & SUPERPOWER). Yin class is recommended to all levels of yogis.
