Class Descriptions

Iyengar

  • a style in which poses may be held longer than in other styles in an effort to pay much closer attention to the precise musculoskeletal alignment within each asana. This class will incorporate an exploration of alignment, strength, balance, flexibility, breath, and relaxation.  

 

Gentle

  • offers the same benefits as our regular yoga class but sometimes uses a chair as a prop for support, balance, or advancing the pose as appropriate for each student.  A series of options are given for each posture to allow students to find the optimal balance between support and challenge to meet them where they are at the moment. This class will incorporate an exploration of alignment, strength, balance, flexibility, breath, and relaxation.  

 

 

Adaptive

  • for people who are unable to participate in regular classes due to strength, balance, or mobility problems. Poses are adapted to individual students’ needs and abilities. We can even accommodate those who are unable to walk unaided; the building is handicap accessible. It is also appropriate for those recovering from injuries, surgeries, etc. that have been medically cleared.

Restorative

  • a gentle, relaxing, passive style in which the poses are held up to 20 minutes. It uses props to provide support in order to allow the student to relax and completely let go.
