Yoga is expanding!!!

Are you looking for the best yoga in the area?!! Search no further!

 

We have several options for the style of class and times through out the week. (Stay Tuned as our classes will be expanding gain soon)

 

Restorative Yoga: Restorative yoga is for everyone.  Whether you are a fitness fanatic working out 5 days a week at the gym, an injured athlete looking for some way to move safely, a senior citizen attempting to age more gracefully, pre and postnatal or you want to recover more quickly from your workouts, this class is for you.  Restorative yoga seeks to achieve physical, mental and emotional release with the aid of props. The use of props makes it easier for you to relax and heal your body.  Restorative yoga is especially useful when you need to eliminate fatigue and stress that result from your daily activities. Consistent practice of restorative yoga will make your body less vulnerable to stress-related illnesses and help you achieve optimal health.

Yoga Sculpt: When muscle meets yoga, Yoga Sculpt is born. You will boost metabolism and build lean muscle mass as you combine light (1-10 lbs) free weights with yoga sequencing. Yoga Sculpt incorporates cardio exercises and high-intensity interval training to keep your heart healthy and to burn calories. This class is an excellent option and perfect complement to our other fitness classes you might take.  Yoga Sculpt is about becoming stronger in your movements and body control to take your body to the next level! No yoga experience is necessary for this class.  **Disclaimer this is very different than our Restorative Yoga and if you are working through any injuries contact us first for guidance.

Power Yoga:  Power Yoga is an intense workout that will make you sweat. Power Yoga classes move with a faster rhythm of Sun Salutations, traditional Warrior sequences, balance poses, and challenging transitions. It’s great addition to strength training because you lift and hold your body weight constantly. And when it’s all over you will leave feeling energized, calm and with an extra little skip in your step!

*Previous yoga experience is recommended as well as the ability to transition easily from standing to planking. Taking a Restorative Yoga or personal 1on1 session can be a great place to start if you don’t have past yoga experience. If you have questions, please contact the instructor.
