Yoga is a system of creating balance in the body, mind and spirit. It is a practice of moving forward, while embracing what is, and watching what unfolds.
Options are offered in every class to help you embrace where you are in the moment.
Stress Reducing Vinyasa Flow
The Vinyasa practice links breath with movement, challenging you to move with awareness, control and intention. Vinyasa Flow is a dynamic practice that builds strength, stamina, flexibility, balance between exertion and relaxation, and a quieter mind.
Hatha Yoga (Ha – sun, Tha – moon) is a practice of creating balance through alignment-oriented yoga postures. Emphasis is placed on core strength, flexibility, and balance as well as concentration and breath control. Hatha uses less movement than Vinyasa and is easier on the knees and joints. Perfect for beginners as well as long time practitioners.
A quiet, meditative practice designed to increase flexibility by stretching connective tissue (fascia), which plays a vital role in lengthening our muscles and increasing overall flexibility. Fascia takes longer to stretch than muscle so
Yin postures are held for 3 to 5 minutes. Excellent for students with moderate flexibility, who are ready to go deeper into their practice. All poses are done on the floor – no standing poses. This is a challenging practice for both body and mind.
Yang & Yin Yoga
Begin with Yang asanas designed to loosen and strength the body while quieting the mind.
Then settle into Yin with longer held floor asanas that are more meditative and get you deeper into your practice. Yin poses are particularly good for releasing tension in the hips, pelvis and spine. All levels welcome.
Stretch, DeStress & Restore
Practice calming Pranayama (breathing techniques), tension-relieving Asanas (postures) with modifications to accommodate varying needs, and finish with guided relaxation. Learn simple techniques that can be used in daily life to reduce stress and focus on living a more balanced life. Corporate Yoga in Philadelphia, Stress Management in Philadelphia, Wellness Programs
The gentle nature of this class makes it appropriate for anyone looking to reduce physical and emotional tension, interested in beginning a yoga practice, living with mild chronic fatigue or back problems.
Guided Meditation / Yoga Nidra
Reap the benefits of Yoga and Meditation without lifting a finger. Guided Meditation encourages deep relaxation of body and mind, and tends to have a quicker pay off than silent meditation because the mind has a task to keep it occupied.
That task is to relax, heal, and revitalize your mind, body, nervous system, and spirit. Even on the days your mind wanders off a bit, this practice has great rewards.
Options: Seated or Lying Down, can be combined with movement and/ or silent meditation and relaxation.
