WHOLESOME AGING WITH EXERCISE & DANCE (JAN 2021)
(Re)discover Yoga - Kate L.
This creative class is slow enough to give you time to adjust, feel subtle internal awareness, breathe, and expand. And strong enough to kick your butt if you desire. Receive alignment cues and personal attention. Self-massage therapy is woven into every class, which is a unique compliment to traditional yoga asana. Drawing from a variety of eastern and western movement and spiritual disciplines, Kate expands asana into a holistic strengthening and healing experience. Kate provides options to make this class accessible to beginners, as well as interesting and challenging for long-time yogis.
Power into Balance - Alexandra K.
This is a strengthening, toning and sculpting practice for the entire body. This power based workout will be a balance of combining strong yoga postures, with breath to build muscle and deepen flexibility. This class can be offered as a whole body practice or as a series where each class is dedicated to a specific muscle group. No experience needed, these classes are individualized and accessible to beginner groups as well as challenging for more athletic bodies.
Hatha Yoga - Alexandra K.
This Hatha Yoga class focuses on breath, body connection, posture alignment and balance. It is a holistic, full body journey. She believes yoga is accessible to everyone and her teaching is grounded in creating health and happiness on all levels using: proper breath, exercise, relaxation, diet, meditation and positive thinking. Alexandra is passionate about helping others to create space in their busy lives for spiritual and physical practice using acceptance, mindfulness and body mind connection.
Gentle Yoga - Amanda H.
Regardless of our physical backgrounds, we all need to cultivate areas of gentleness into our lives and in relationship to our bodies. Gentle Yoga takes our practice down a notch and allows us to ease into postures with grace and time to explore. This class will be accessible for all levels, with a focus on providing modifications and support using blocks, bolsters, and blankets. Our goal is to target the parasympathetic nervous system using particular postures and breath work so that your body and mind can experience a state of genuine calmness.
Effort & Ease Yoga - Amanda H.
This class is perfect for anyone who seeks to build strength, sculpt lean muscles, and experience the aerobic and endurance enhancing benefits of yoga. One of the key elements to endurance is better utilizing oxygen to deliver to working muscles. By utilizing powerful, yet accessible yoga postures and sequences, accompanied by a strong and deep breathing practice, your body will feel stronger- both on and off your mat. We will incorporate strength circuits for all areas of the body followed by restorative postures that will calm the body and mind after working to your own individual edge. (Recommended for anyone, but some experience with Yoga or bodyweight exercises is helpful.)
Yin/Yang Yoga - Amanda H.
Yin Yoga places emphasis on stillness, meditation, and holding poses for longer periods of time. It carves out spaces of quietness where students are able to feel deeper into both their emotional and physical bodies. Yin targets the deep connective tissues of the body (fascia, ligaments, and joints), and should be used as a complimentary practice to more strenuous exercise practices. The purpose of Yin is to lightly stress and stimulate these deep connective tissues that are not emphasized to the same degree in other forms of exercise, helping to increase flexibility and joint mobility. Yin is suitable for every body type, as each posture can be modified with the use of blankets, bolsters, and blocks.
Slow Burn Yoga - Kirsten E.
A slow flow yoga practice focusing on traditional hatha yoga postures and alignment. This practice will help build strength and flexibility, bringing about a sense of stability in the body. This is a focused slow flowing practice with postures sequenced to move the body with ease from one posture into the next.
Easy Peezy Yoga - Julia K.
A slow easy paced class designed for beginners or the experienced practitioner. This class will involve a series of simple breathing techniques, gentle yoga postures and a relaxing meditation.
Fluid Flow Yoga - Julia K.
Join a vinyasa based yoga class focusing on linking breath to each movement. This class will offer a safe cocoon for the student to explore each posture and find their own flow and express themselves through movement.
Root-Awakening Yoga- Kirsten E.
This 8-class series is intended for women who have gone through childbearing, ranging from 6 weeks postpartum to postmenopausal. If you have ever given birth, you are postpartum. :) The series is created to help forge a deeper relationship with the pelvic floor as well as deep core muscles. It is also designed to assist on the healing journey after having a baby, and if you’ve never addressed your pelvic floor or deep core muscles after giving birth, you are still on that healing journey. In this series you will learn about the pelvic floor anatomy, the different functions, and common dysfunctions or injuries of the deep core muscles and how to approach healing this area of the body in a holistic way. You might even find out that the more we look at and practice the holistic healing of our roots, the rest of the body will flourish. This series will build upon itself week after week. By doing this we will be able to address the nuances of healing from the roots up, so to speak. If there is a week that you are unable to attend the class, please contact Kristen to find an alternative time to make up for this class.
