Mat Yoga

Mat yoga is practiced on a mat and refers to a set of physical exercises known as asanas or postures sequenced to align your skin, muscles, and bones. The postures are designed to open the many channels of the body—especially the main channel, the spine—so that energy can flow freely. 

The newest class, Introduction to Yoga, provides a solid foundation newcomers to yoga for enjoying the practice.

Vinyasa

This challenging yoga flow class is for intermediate/ advanced students because of its faster paced movements.  Students coordinate one breath/ one movement to a specific sequence of poses moving up and down off the floor . This repeating of poses increases body heat, sweat, and builds strength, getting the heart pumping. Students need to be able to get up and down from the floor at a quicker pace than slow flow or mat yoga. 

1 Vinyasa class is offered by the Yoga Club.

Wed

Slow Flow

This challenging ( Hatha) “all levels” class is for very mobile students and is structured as a flow class, with the tempo slowed down tremendously for more mindful movement from one pose to the next. As Vinyasa is one breath, one movement, slow flow spends more time holding postures (5-8 breaths) to focus in on the breath/body/mind connection to create calm. Students should be able to get up and down from the floor. 

1 Slow Flow class is offered by the Yoga Club.
