Yin Yoga Class

The practice of yin yoga provides the perfect balance to your active (yang) yoga practices and your busy life. Focusing on long-held floor poses combined with breath work and meditation, yin yoga goes beneath the superficial muscles to target the dense connective tissues of the body – often in the hips, pelvis, and low back – which are difficult to open and can result in both limited flexibility and stagnant energy.

Flowers

This deep practice is gentle, yet intense, helping students not only to open the body, but also to cultivate the ability to observe and stay with sensation. This class is appropriate for all levels and ends with a relaxation.

  • Saturday: 9:00 am – 10:30 am

Drop-in available.

Private Pilates Classes

Pilates is a combination of breath and core exercise that can enhance your overall core strength dramatically. The fundamentals and key exercises of a Pilates practice engage the deep, internal muscles of the abdomen and back. When these core muscles are strong and doing their job, as they are trained to do in Pilates, they work in tandem with the more superficial muscles of the trunk to support the the spine in day to day movement, keeping us more resistant to back and neck injury and lengthening, toning and shaping the mid section of the body.

With a regular Pilates practice you will develop your core strength and stability throughout your entire torso.  As the trunk is properly stabilized, pressure on the back is relieved and the body is able to move freely and efficiently through all types of movement.  Sounds good doesn’t it?
