Classic Hot 90
Our classic Hot 90 is practiced in a safe and temperature controlled environment, heated to 105′ and 40% humidity. The heat allows deep penetration, helping relieve muscle resistance without risking injury. Each posture is done in specific order, preparing the body for the next posture. By the end of a Hot Yoga class, you will have touched every muscle, tendon, joint, ligament, internal organ, and gland. You systematically move fresh, oxygenated blood to 100% of the body. These postures work synergistically and cumulatively to put the body back on track and in balance. Hot Yoga builds strength, balance and flexibility by gently stretching and massaging the spine, muscles, tendons, joints, and all internal organs of the body. Lung capacity is expanded, leading to greater vitality. Bones are strengthened. Joints are opened and lubricated. Muscles are strengthened, toned, and made more flexible. Regular practice of this series of postures results in the healing and repair of injuries and illnesses, weight loss, and peace of mind. Perfect class for first timers as well as long time yoga enthusiasts.
It only takes 50 minutes of the Barre (Ballet & Strength type workout) to sculpt your legs and upper body. Flatten your tummy and strengthen your core while having fun.
Each exercise is thoughtfully and purposefully placed in the class exercise order to optimize the ability to burn fat, sculpt the body, and build long, lean muscles. We use ballet barre leg sculpting exercises and amplified them. We use music, balls and bands to mix up the exercises in each class. We challenge the core, contour our legs and tone our arms. Our program is designed to strengthen the muscles by working to fatigue, then stretch to lengthen and sculpt.
Gentle Hatha Yoga
This class is divided into easy segments that will leave you energized and feeling more flexible. It uses safe, easy to follow movements allowing room for modifications for each pose: standing, seated or using a chair for support. Special emphasis is placed on increasing strength and flexibility in the muscles and joints most needed in performing every day tasks. For example, we do many movements to strengthen the feet, ankles and legs to improve balance and help avoid falls; We strengthen the legs and hips, for greater mobility in getting up and down from chairs, and in and out of cars; and we work on increasing range of motion in the shoulders, arms and hands, for greater ease in performing everyday tasks such as getting dressed and doing housework. Full deep breathing and good posture are encouraged throughout.
The emphasis in Yin Yoga is on releasing muscles rather than contracting them. Each class is taught exclusively on the floor, holding passive poses for 3-5 minutes each. Yin Yoga poses target the tighter connective tissues in the hips, hamstrings, and lower spine. As a pure flexibility practice, this is an excellent class for aging baby-boomers, injured/active athletes, and those new to yoga. Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues, the tendons, fascia, and ligaments. Postures aim to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility. The postures are also believed to improve the flow of chi, the subtle energy said in Chinese medicine to run through the meridian pathways of the body. Improved chi flow is hypothesized to improve organ health, immunity, and emotional well-being. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of one’s inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality. This is a very relaxing class, men and women of all ages can practice yin yoga in a safe, slow pace. We use blankets, blocks and straps to bolster and support the limbs. Muscles need to be relaxed in this class to fully get the benefit of reaching the deep connective tissue. We highly recommend this class if you have joint pain, back pain or pain from repetitive movements.
