YinFORM

Linden Tree Photography FORM 079

DEEP PASSIVE YIN YOGA STRETCH CLASS THAT IS CREATED TO OPEN THE LESS MALLEABLE AREAS OF THE HIPS, PELVIS, AND LOWER SPINE. Yin Yoga is the perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular “yang” styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. This class focus mainly on seated poses that have longer holds of several minutes that will allow the muscles to relax and stretch deeper. This style of yoga targets the connective tissues that encase your muscles and your joints which provide elasticity, plasticity and longevity for your yang practice and through regular practice, will greatly increase range of motion and joint mobility. After you have experienced Yin, even just once, you will realize that your Yang asanas are one half of your practice, hence the Yin & the Yang balance. Perfect for those looking for a deep stretch class, this is very beginner friendly and is suitable for all levels. For optimal comfort dress in layers and feel free to bring a pair of socks to keep your feet warm.

This slower paced vinyasa class will introduce most common vinyasa postures with a focus on proper alignment, increasing flexibility and gaining upper body  strength. Learn proper technique to safely learn the “vinyasa” sequencing of  chaturanga, upward facing dog, and downward facing dog, traditionally called a “vinyasa”. The class will also work the entire body with standing, seated and core poses along with backbends and balancing postures.  This all levels class is perfect for those who are new to yoga, recovering from injuries, or anyone looking to slow down and deepen their yoga practice. This class is beginner friendly and is open to all levels.

LOW FLOW IS THE ALTERNATIVE TO OUR SIGNATURE VINYASA CLASSES WITH LESS VINYASA AND A FOCUS ON EXPLORING MORE STATIC STANDING POSES. This class eliminates the repetitive flow that most vinyasa classes feature between chaturanga, upward facing dog, and downward facing dog, traditionally called a “vinyasa”. This class is perfect for those recovering from neck, shoulder, and wrist issues or those beginning yoga who have less upper body strength or those who have a chronic conditions that makes vinyasa sequences challenging (such a carpel tunnel, arthritis, etc). In this class you can expect very few vinyasas but still a great workout. This option will focus more on standing, seated, and core strengthening poses with a healthy dose of balancing poses and deep stretches. This class is beginner friendly and is open to all levels.

Flowing Form Level 1/2 

Linden Tree Photography FORM 040

A MORE PLAYFUL AND FLOWING CLASS. This flowing vinyasa practice is all about the connection of the breath and asanas(poses). As we consciously move with our breath the body begins to open more expansively and effectively. The basic foundations and alignment of the pose will be taught with many opportunities to move deeper.  This class will build strength (and burn TONS of calories). The level 1/2 class is a good  progression for beginners in that the class may be lighter on the number of vinyasas. You may begin to learn to execute basic arm balance poses such as bakasana (crow) and basic inversions such as tripod headstand but modifications will always be offered. This class may be challenging for the beginner but it open to all levels
