Core - Sequenced to target the major and minor core muscles in the body (basically your entire trunk), we'll focus on functional strength and an increased sense of stability. You'll leave the mat feeling empowered!
Recovery Yoga – This class is for anyone that wants to explore how yoga fits in with a program of recovery from an addiction: from anything (alcohol, substances, gambling, food, sex, etc.). This 90-minute class will start with a confidential group discussion which we will “take to the mat” for an hour-long yoga practice. This practice is accessible to all, even those who have never tried yoga.
Detox + Decompress - 'Tis the season to be overloaded. The sights, the sounds, the lights, the parties...to keep it all in perspective, it helps to have moments within which we can pause and reconnect with a sense of center and balance. Detox and Decompress classes are a take on our Unwind concept, but promise an entirely instrumental, super chill playlist, breathing exercises for stress reduction and a bonus restorative pose prior to savasana. (Thanksgiving through New Year's)
Unwind - Using Yin Yoga, myofascial release techniques, and other practices from the yoga, fitness and wellness industries, these sessions remove tension from the body and mind. In unwind classes, students will find themselves mostly lying down or seated – on the floor or in specially designed yoga chairs – to explore ways to stretch hips, shoulders, and hamstrings, as well as lots of other parts you might not have even known you could stretch!
Unwind the Week - Cap off your week and kick off the weekend with this "slow and low - that is the tempo" themed practice. This class is primarily deep stretch with some elements of easeful, rhythmic movement and a super chill soundtrack.
Meditation SERIES - “Repetition opens doors,” Tim Lucas astutely wrote. This statement is relevant throughout or lives, and in particular regarding mindfulness. Consistent meditation practice opens the door to more ease and peace in our lives. Meditation teacher and facilitator Sal Familia has been teaching since the 70s, and provides great instruction for both new and experienced practitioners. Meets for six consecutive weeks beginning in January 2018.
Our Kids class on Sundays allows for drop-ins. We don't set firm age limits for children's classes, but we do ask for parental cooperation in ensuring that the class is developmentally appropriate for their children. Hour-long kids classes are best suited for ages 5 and up. Two prerequisites are non-negotiable:
1) Children must be completely independent in the bathroom.
2) Children must have some childcare/school experience to ensure that the transition away from the caregiver and into a group setting is not traumatic in any way.
Beginning in Middle School, children may attend adult classes.
Comfort and Joy - These sessions nestle a playful flow practice between two deliciously grounding restorative poses for a class as sweet and delicious as a whoopie pie! If you're feeling like you have too much to do and not enough time or energy to do it with, this balanced session will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to (jingle bell) rock. (Thanksgiving through New Year's)
Magic Monday - A Nia-inspired combination of dance, martial and healing arts set to a super soulful soundtrack.
Lotus Flow – Our weekly take on the mythology-infused, playful practice developed at Laughing Lotus in New York. Lotus Flow SERIES classes are also available with 300-hour certified Lotus Flow instructor/Reverb founder Ashley Bell beginning January 2018.
