HATHA YOGA-basic description of this type of Yoga Practice....
HATHA is a potent alignment-oriented practice that emphasizes alignment and breath while entering, holding, and leaving the posture. It uses postures (asanas) and stretches in combination with the breath while holding the poses to develop flexibility and relaxation.
--> All HATHA classes encourage proper alignment of the body, often include breathing and meditation techniques to bring balance, strength, and calmness to the practitioner.
Hatha yoga is excellent for students who appreciate longer holds in individual postures and prefer a slower and more meditative approach to practice (while still reaping the benefits of a physical practice).
New! Yin Yoga!
Join sheila as she leads you in an hour of Yin Yoga. This class is accessible from beginners to advanced practitioners and is a great addition to your power yoga classes.
GENTLE :: Yin + Nidra
Work the connective tissues of our ligaments, joints and deep fascial networks in this meditative practice focused on deep stretching, breathing and relaxation. Props are used to support the body as postures are held for an extended time allowing for deep stretches that are soft, rather than muscle driven.
Class ends with a guided Yoga Nidra savasana "yogic sleep" - a conscious state between wakefulness and sleep. The teacher's voice leads the shifting of your attention in a practice of letting go, willful emptying that leads to calmness, quietness and clarity.
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!
