Warm Hatha Yoga (Healthy Heat)
Our Warm Hatha classes use infrared heat to benefit you therapeutically. The heat panels are designed to keep the room within comfortable temperatures which also allows for easy breathing. The benefits to practicing in warmth include burning fat effectively and increasing metabolism, detoxification, safe and easy stretching and opening of musculoskeletal structures, improved spinal integrity and nervous system function, rapid healing from injury and disease, and increased mental focus and discipline.
This class moves at a moderate pace and is suitable for students already familiar with the postures learned in Hatha Yoga. We practice to align our yoga postures with our breath to create heat & stability. Flexibility, strength and clarity are natural side affects.
A gentle paced class teaches the foundational poses of yoga. Students will learn about the principles of alignment and breathing techniques that help us flow between poses. Beginner Yoga prepares your for regular attendance in Hatha classes. We will teach you how to prepare for practice, enjoy your practice and how to take your practice into daily life.
Restorative classes are designed to rest the nervous system and help release deeply held tensions from the body. This is suitable and encouraged for yogis of all levels of experience. After centering the body you will be guided through some gentle stretches designed to gradually open the body and bring a sense of deep restoration.
Working with your changing body, the goal of our prenatal class is to prepare your body for labour, delivery and life after your little bundle arrives. This class is suitable for beginners experiencing a low-risk pregnancy.
Postnatal Yoga (Mom & Baby)
Let us love your little ones as you do. Bring them to yoga! Babies are encouraged to participate in your practice, or sleep or feed through it. For moms with babies new-born to age two, who love to move, giggle and cuddle.
Gentle yoga modifies traditional yoga poses so they can be performed on or with the assist of a chair or other supportive props. These modifications make yoga accessible to people who cannot stand or lack the mobility to move easily from standing to seated to supine positions. We welcome you to this softer, slower paced, well supported and relaxing practice.
