What Is Yoga
Yoga is an ancient Asian practice, it is a combination of physical exercise, breath control, positive thinking, and meditation. Yoga is an incredibly effective form of fitness that is suitable for all ages and abilities and especially great for those who require low-impact or progressive forms of fitness.
Yoga has long been known to improve:
- Strength, flexibility, and balance
- Relieve muscular pain, especially in the torso
- Lean muscle mass
- Our cardiovascular system by lowering blood pressure
- Posture, especially in our modern sedentary, desk-ridden lives
- Range of motion and core stability
- Metabolic function of the body
- Our mood and energy, by lowering cortisol levels that impact serotonin production
- Our body’s immune system and inflammatory responses
While there are many forms of yoga, here are some of the ones our clients love and enjoy.
Finding the right yoga class can be intimidating and confusing. In this class we will be focused on alignment, helping you gain confidence in your poses. You will do approximately 15 to 20 poses in this class. You will discover that your breath control (Pranayama) can ease your mind, and help you get more connected with your poses (Asana).
With a gentler, more meditative style of yoga, this style of class offers a deep stretch, holding the poses in a comfortable position for longer periods of time. It’s a good class for letting go of things that might be holding you back, creating space for new things, and gently waking the muscles.
Restorative yoga is a very important part of a yogis practice, it focuses on fewer poses than Hatha, a deeper meditative state to help relieve stress on the body by using props such as pillows, blankets, belts, yoga blocks/ books and you do not even have to break a sweat doing it.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga
In Western countries, yoga has been modernized as people wanted a more vigorous workout and this form of yoga helps meet that goal. Using a continuous flowing movement from one pose to the next, you can easily work up a sweat, burn calories, build strength, and tone your muscles in a low-impact, smooth workout that doesn’t raise cortisol levels or require a large workout space.
