Beginners Yoga is a slower-paced flow class geared towards those new to yoga or preferring a slightly gentler class. Time is spent breaking down sun salutations and other poses fundamental to a Vinyasa practice. Props and modifications offered for proper alignment and ease in the postures. This class non-heated 60 minute class. Those wanting to see what yoga is about for the first time-this is a great place to start. You will learn and grow through your practice! Poses will be broken down and explained as the class goes on.
I will be offering a beginner workshop during the year also! Be on the lookout!
Prepare yourself for deep relaxation and restoration. You will have all the necessary props you need during this 60 minute rest time.
The lights will be dimmed and soft music will be played. In some poses, I may cocoon you in blankets for extra warmth and coziness.
After you are set up in a pose with all your props, you will hold the pose for an extended period of time, often up to 5 to 10 minutes. Although you are supported, you will definitely still feel the stretch. You will continue to focus on your breath throughout the class. I may talk you through a meditation or play music. You may only do four or five poses over the course of the entire class. At the end of the class, your body feels open and refreshed, relaxed and restored.
Take some time to relax and be still with yourself. Enjoy some quiet time.
Feet Up™ Inversion fun!
For those that have health reasons for not placing stress on your head/neck or for students who do not wish to come into inversions on the head....this class will be for you. If you love inversions like me....anytime you go upside down is a blast....this will add to your inversion practice!
Watch your world open up as you work your core and invert in a fabulous way with no pressure on your head! You will work hard, but it will also be fun!
If your yearning to lift up into headstand, or want to challenge yourself in inversions, you might like to give the FeetUp Trainer a try.
The FeetUp Trainer has been developed to make headstands accessible to everyone. By using this tool yoga students are able to progress with their headstand practice much quicker as it helps to build confidence in those challenging inversions.
No weight is placed on the head when using a FeetUp Trainer as the tool evenly distributes the weight across the shoulders. This means and pressure is taken off the neck, and the spine is gently stretched. The hands can be placed onto the handlebars and this helps massively with balance. Over time you can play around with releasing the hands, moving the legs, shifting the weight around and seeing what feels good for you.
Classes will be small. In the beginning we will be limiting class size to 5-6 per class.
Benefits include: Focused adjustments, Custom tailored practice and Direct-supervision.
One on one classes are a great way to expand your practice and to start your practice. Please contact me for hours and fees for private sessions!
