Class Descriptions:

Our classes run in sessions, like semesters, which vary in length depending on the season. Teaching is progressive, which means instructors build upon poses and skills from week to week, but drop-in students are welcome when appropriate and space is available.

 

Postnatal Yoga

This class is designed for parents recovering from childbirth and looking for a supportive class to help build strength and fitness and reduce stress. Class will incorporate modified yoga asana with an emphasis on stability, breath work, focus and relaxation activities, and a connecting to a supportive parenting community.

Generally, evening in-person and weekend classes are for the parent-only, unless noted. Weekday classes and any class over Zoom welcomes babies, but they are not the focus.

Trapeze Yoga

This class incorporates traditional yoga asana, breathwork, and relaxation but is based around our YogaBody-style yoga trapeze rigs. Yoga Trapeze inversions counteract gravity, creating space and length in the spine though simple, gentle, bodyweight traction. Trapeze work also includes functional pulling and grip strength often missing in a mat-based yoga practice to create a full-body fitness routine. 

Prerequisite: Prior semester, Intro to Yoga Trapeze, or by permission.

Vinyasa Yoga

This class teaches the essentials of vinyasa yoga including sun salutations, standing poses, balancing postures, seated and reclining poses, backbends, core isolation, and strengthening. Special emphasis is placed on moving into and out of postures safely, correct alignment, moving with breath, and learning to quiet the chatter of the mind to find peace and inner stillness. Variations will be offered to enable both newer and more experienced students to work at their own levels.  Beginners welcome.

Classes noted as postnatal-friendly are sequenced with variations appropriate for the first 6 months after childbirth, once the student has been cleared for exercise.
