Types of Classes

All classes listed may not currently be on my schedule.  Please contact me if you are interested in having me personally create for you one of the classes listed below.  All classes can be taught as a private one on one yoga class or as a private group yoga class.

 

 

Chair Yoga

Designed for students who are afraid of yoga or who have injuries.  The support of the chair allows you to be comfortable and confident while moving into each of the poses.  While in the chair, mobility is created gently in all of your muscles and joints, including your spine, pelvis, and neck.  Breathing exercises and short meditations are introduced to relax and quiet the mind.

 

 

Gentle Yoga

Designed for beginner students who are brand new to yoga and who also struggle with inflexibility.  The breathwork and the yoga postures are introduced in ways that make it less intimidating for the new student, to help build their comfort, confidence, and flexibility.  Short meditations are used to relax and quiet the mind, as well as elevate spiritual awareness.

 

Beginner Yoga (Level 1 yoga)

Designed for students who are beginners, but who want to challenge themselves as well.  Basic postures are introduced in ways that help to make the student feel comfortable and confident.  More challenging poses are added into the sequence to help strengthen and stretch muscles, as well as mobilize joints.  Breathing exercises and short meditations are introduced to relax and quiet the mind.

 

 

Intermediate Yoga (Level 1/2 yoga)

This is a combination of beginner and intermediate yoga.  Geared for students who are just starting out, as well as those who are more advanced.  For the beginners, there are basics introduced, as well as alignment to keep you strongly supported throughout the class.  For those who are more advanced there is challenge and flow.  Strong focus on breath throughout.  Short meditations are used to relax and quiet the mind, as well as elevate spiritual awareness.

 

Advanced Yoga (Level 2 yoga)

For yoga students with experience:  The focus will be on increasing your awareness of correct alignment in each of the poses, challenging yourself with increasingly advanced poses, as well as learning to incorporate breath and flow throughout the practice.  Breathing exercises and short meditations are introduced to relax and quiet the mind.

 

Yoga for Athletes

A class dedicated to developing flexibility for athletes using yoga postures.  This class teaches all athletes to stretch muscles in a safe and aligned way that helps keep muscles in balance and prevent overuse. Breathing techniques are then incorporated to help facilitate stretching, improve focus and concentration, as well as relax the body and quiet the mind. This class will help improve flexibility, no matter what sport you play.

 

 

Prenatal Yoga
