Yoga

A number of yoga classes are available as individual or group sessions.

Yoga for Round BodiesTM celebrates individuals who are round and may have limited yoga experience. Move your body and quiet your mind in a supportive, non-judgmental, positive environment. These gentle yoga classes will emphasize the body, mind and breath connection, improve flexibility, increase strength and improve your breathing. The poses are suited for all body types and for beginners. This class is not about weight loss (Yoga for Round Bodies embraces a Health at Every Size® philosophy). It is an opportunity to explore yoga beginning from where you are right now.

Eat Breathe Thrive Yoga is therapeutic, yoga-based practice for people with disordered eating and negative body image. Find out how yoga can be used to redefine your relationship with your body and yourself, and learn practical tools for cultivating a positive body image. Cultivate healthier eating habits, uncover your body’s innate intelligence through meditations for tracking hunger and fullness.

Vinyasa Flow is a type of yoga where movement is synchronized to the breath, and the poses connect together smoothly in a dance like “flow”. The breath acts as an anchor to the movement as you flow from one pose to the next.

Deep Stretch and Relaxation blends Yin Yoga, Hatha yoga and mindfulness. It is a class that promotes deep relaxation and stretching. Yin Yoga addresses the demands that sitting still in one position for a long time places on the body by focusing on stretching connective tissue of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. This class is suitable for almost all levels of people and is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles.

Core Strengthening is a yoga based program designed to work the collection of muscles which stabilize and move the spine. Core muscles are close to the spine and deep inside the abdomen. These muscles help control movements, transfer energy, shift body weight and move in all directions. The biggest benefit of core training is to develop functional fitness; the type of fitness that is essential to daily living and regular activities.
