Participant Policies

Fall Yoga Schedule: September 9-December 12, 2019

Vinyasa Yoga:
Vinyasa Yoga follows the flow of breath through a sequence of interweaving asana’s (poses). This class includes Sun Salutations, balancing and core strengthening postures. This class will stretch and strengthen the entire body while creating internal energy.

Mondays 4:15-5:15pm Hannah
Power Hour Yoga:
A fitness-based approach to Vinyasa style flow for all levels. Students will focus on linking conscious breath with a mindful flow. In this power yoga class, students will build strength, flexibility and concentration while cleansing the body and calming the mind. You can expect a great cardiovascular and strength building workout combined with breath work.

Wednesdays 5:45-6:45pm Hannah
Yin Restorative Yoga:
Yin Restorative Yoga combines two different practices into one relaxing yet challenging class. Yin yoga works to stretch the muscles deeply and apply stress on the joints in the body. Restorative yoga is meant to allow you to completely rest and relax. Both types of yoga incorporate poses that are held for long periods of time (5-10 minutes each pose) and each class will combine both restorative and yin poses. It’s best to practice without warming up prior and no exercise afterwards. Benefits include: stress management, flexibility, releasing fascia, improving joint motion, and even more!

Thursdays 6:45-7:45pm Hannah

Classes are not competitive:
– A “good” practice is defined as whatever one’s body and mind are capable of giving on a specific day. Respect and honor your body by not pushing past your limits of strength and flexibility. Stay present in the process and not obsessed with the outcome. Yoga practice is about letting go of competitiveness with others and yourself.
Physical assisting is part of many Mind & Body classes:
– Your instructor may move your body with their hands in order to help you to find the correct alignment. If you feel uncomfortable with being physically assisted in class, please let your instructor know.
