AYURVEDIC AND YOGA THERAPY

Ayurveda, the science of life, has been practiced continuously for over 5,000 years. Ayurvedic practices restore the balance and harmony of the individual, resulting in self-healing, good health and longevity. Expect an Ayurvedic therapy yoga class to be structured to the individual for improved health and balance.

HATHA

The word "Hatha" comes from the Sanskrit "ha," meaning sun, and "tha," meaning moon. The principle behind Hatha is uniting pairs of opposites: the positive and the negative, the sun and the moon. The slow pace and simple breathing exercises make it a great place to learn basic poses and become comfortable on the mat. You can expect a slower-paced practice that focuses on breathing and learning poses. 

KUNDALINI 

Kundalini Yoga utilizes movement, sound, breath and meditation to relax and restore your mind and body while improving strength, flexibility and endurance. This form of yoga stimulates the immune, nervous and glandular systems, helping to bring you back into true harmony. What to expect: All classes will begin with an opening change and finish with deep meditation, a closing chant and a song. Expect to focus on your breath and to move, dance and let go. 

RESTORATIVE AND YIN STRETCH

Postures are held for longer periods of time to initiate deep realization of the body, mind and spirit. slow restorative yoga is beneficial to balance a more active practice or decompress after a stressful day. 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. Expect a slow paced class emphasizing deep stretch and relaxation.

VINYASA FLOW

Vinyasa means "breath-synchronized movement," and Vinyasa yoga is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling. Vinyasa movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like. Expect to move and breathe smoothly from one pose to another. Your class will most likely include Sun Salutations with the style and sequencing varying depending on the teacher.

 

THAI MASSAGE 

Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. Thai massage is also called Thai yoga massage, because the therapist uses their hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work. Expect both a relaxing and energizing session of muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure.

ACRO YOGA

Acroyoga blends Thai Yoga Therapy, yoga, acrobatics, and other healing arts into a fun, supportive, and empowering practice. Acroyoga classes feature partner flow, flying and basing, strength training and inversions. Expect to  "fly" or "base" through a safe, fun, and exploratory practice fit to your ability.

ASHTANGA

Ashtanga Vinyasa as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois is a system of postures linked together by breath and movement. It is fast-paced with a lot of movement. Expect a set sequence of poses that follows in the exact same order every time. People love the repetition since it can act as a form of moving meditation.

ASPEN CORE (HIIT)

An enhanced form of interval training, an exercise strategy alternating periods of short intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. These short, intense workouts provide improved athletic capacity and condition, improved glucose metabolism, and improved fat burning. Expect a 30 min non-stop intense workout. Tennis shoes needed

PILATES

This art of controlled movement improves flexibility, builds strength, developed control and endurance in the whole human body. It puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, and developing a strong powerhouse, and improving coordination and balance.Pilates' system allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty from beginning to advanced. Expect to be on a mat either seated or lying on the floor.  Focus is on abdominal muscles, inner and outer thighs, as well as the back, hamstrings, and glutes with stretching at the end.
