Our non-heated class options include:
Yin yoga, a non-heated class, is a form of Chinese yoga that is quiet and inwardly focused. The postures, mostly targeting the low back and hips, are all practiced on the floor with the support of props (bolsters, blankets, and blocks) and are held for 3 to 5 minutes allowing you to reach deep into the connective tissues and the joints. Many students find Yin Yoga to be the perfect complement and balance to their more active, yang practices (such as All Levels Vinyasa).
Yoga Nidra is a state of conscious deep rest. In this rejuvenating class, you will experience 20 minutes of gentle movement followed by 40 minutes of guided relaxation in final resting pose. The room will be gently warmed, please dress comfortably.
The physical practice of yoga strengthens our physical body and makes us more flexible. The practice of meditation has the same benefits for our minds. Among its many benefits, meditation is proven to decrease anxiety, stress, depression and improve cognitive function. This class will begin with 45 minutes of mindful movement, followed by 30 minutes of various guided meditation practices. Each month we will explore different techniques. No experience necessary and all levels are welcome. This class is not heated.
