POWER YOGA

Mon, Wed and Thurs 6-7:15pm; Saturdays 10-11:30am

Taught in the tradition of Baron Baptiste. The Power Flow classes are a strong vinyasa flow, moving gently and energetically from pose to pose, toning the entire body – inside and out. The 90 degree heat of the yoga room provides the ultimate benefit of detoxification through deep breathing, mindful movement and dripping sweat. This class is both friendly and challenging for all bodies, all ages, all levels of experience, fitness and flexibility.

GENTLE YOGA

Monday and Thursday 10-11am

Many of you will be glad to hear that the room will be at a comfortable temperature, NOT 90 degrees! This is a class adapted from a Gentle Yoga class taught at Kripalu by Stephen Cope, and is appropriate for all levels of practitioners – brand new beginner to highly experienced. It is a very well-thought-out progression of poses that takes the body through a gentle warm up, standing postures and floor postures designed to systematically open the body and bring fresh blood to those creaky joints. It is a perfect practice for those of us experiencing the wisdom that comes from living many years in the same body, as well as those ready to learn to trust the wisdom of our own body’s knowing.  It’s chief aim is to teach us to be at home in the body.

LONG, SLOW AND DEEP

Tuesday 6-8pm

Just like it sounds! LONG holds moving SLOWly through the body getting the DEEPest stretches you can imagine! This practice was developed by Bryan Kest of San Diego and is AWESOME!!!

PRAYER YOGA

Monday thru Friday 7-8am

A beautiful way to bring your practice to a spiritual level and to greet the day with openness and receptivity. 20 minutes of Sun Salutations followed by 20 minutes of stillness in quiet meditation. Using the Book of Common Prayer as a guide gives our practice a distinctively Christian flavor yet allows practitioners to develop a meditation practice that fits their own personal spiritual bent.
