YOGA CLASSES AND YOGA WORKSHOPS
Yoga acts as a mirror. Each breath, each movement, reflects to us who we are and how we are moment to moment. We look into the mirror of yoga and see the places that need support and the places that need to open. The postures teach us about ourselves, markers on the map of the soul. They bless us with immediate feedback. As we move deeper into the physical and mystical teachings, we become intrepid explorers mining the terrain of body, mind, and soul.
Integral Level I®
For students interested in the traditional Yoga class. A comprehensive, balanced class with a steady flow, relaxation between asanas, and guided instruction throughout. This is a comprehensive practice for personal transformation - physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Each class incorporates postures, deep relaxation, breathing practices, and meditation that result in a profound experience of peace and well - being. First - time students are welcome.
Integral Level II®
For students who are experienced with the Integral Yoga class format and are ready to move at a faster pace. New challenging poses are introduced such as mayurasana (peacock) and shirshasana (headstand). This class has less instruction and less relaxation between asanas; asanas are held longer for an experience at a deeper level.
Children of all ages are welcome. We encourage children to experiment with their body and breath, mind and spirit. Our Yoga classes are discovery classes in which children move from gross body awareness to subtle spiritual experience. They learn simple anatomy and age appropriate breath work which translates into body awareness and mindfulness.
The classes are playful and children are encouraged to sing, to play games, to challenge themselves in Yoga poses. They learn to stretch their bodies in creative ways developing flexibility, strength and coordination. They learn to stretch their minds in creative ways through storytelling, music and art. Partner poses and group games encourage children to connect with one another in profound ways.
Children are taught techniques to assist them with focus and relaxation promoting mental clarity, positive thinking and confidence.
