This class is for everyone so options are offered in all poses and flows in order to accommodate students at every level. Come and join this once a week class that is very popular and has been taught by Véronique for many years. From late spring to early fall, when the temperature's above 60F, we will often hold class outside on the lawn by the studio!
Yin Yoga focuses on longer holds of the postures in order to access and release the deeper layers of the body. The holds last between 2 and 5 minutes which allows a steady and peaceful focus on the joints. This class is slow and meditative, having a deeply calming effect.
This class will consist of asanas and body movements which are performed slowly. This will allow us to individually explore and extend the boundaries of our physical strength in a safe, self-limiting way. We will, with patient action, get stronger over many classes together. We will perform mostly body-weight Yoga poses but mixed with the use of our "little gurus" (studio-provided props), such as small hand weights, straps, blocks, belts, and stretch bands. Join us to maintain and restore the strength and mobility you need to live fully in the world! Warning: there may be some shaking and a few minutes of dancing in some sessions - so bring a friend!
Classic Hatha Yoga is a slower, more controlled form of Yoga. Asanas will not be strung together at a strenuous pace but practiced individually and coordinated with the breath. There is a warmup phase, some stronger poses, and then a relaxation phase, resulting in a state for which Hatha Yoga has been practiced since ancient times, namely as preparation for meditation. Over time, this practice will reap great inner rewards, which will manifest in an externally unambiguous joie de vivre!
Flow classes weave and sequence all kinds of postures in either a very slow pace to stay present with each move in and out of the Asanas (poses), or, at a very dynamic pace to keep you moving. Regardless of pace, Vinyasa style links the breath to the movements. All levels of experience are welcome!
Equilibrium is a Vinyasa flow class. This class is available to newer students as well as experienced practitioners. Throughout the class, opportunities to modify poses as needed will be offered with the encouragement to feel the flow of prana. Kathe teaches with a sense of humor and great respect for the amazing beauty and complexity of our human bodies and minds. Please come and enjoy!
