Gentle Restorative Flow Yoga (Mellow)

Gentle Restorative Flow Yoga begins on the floor in a restorative supine position. From this restorative place, students are guided through a centering, pranayama (focused breathing practices) and a gentle warm-up. The warm-up continues as students make their way to a seated position and continue to gently warm up the spine. From there, students make their way through table pose to standing for modified Sun Salutations and a few more poses to continue to get the blood flowing through the body and wake-up the prana (lifeforce). After the standing poses, students return to the floor for restorative poses each held for 3-5 minutes. The class ends in a lovely guided relaxation.

Restorative Yin Yoga uses gentle long held postures practiced with an attitude of compassionate acceptance to awaken the more Yin parts of our physical, emotional and spiritual selves.

Radiant Being: Yin Yoga & Guided Meditation

A grounding meditative Yin Yoga practice with gentle music and themed readings from The Radiance Sutras (by Lorin Roche, PhD) or A Path and A Practice – Using Lao-Tau’s Tao Te Ching as a Guide to an Awakened Spiritual Life (by William Martin).

Aerial Restorative Yoga (Mellow)

This class is formatted so that at least half of the class is conducted with suspended swings near the floor so that the body is grounded while allowing the gentle stretching effect of suspended support. Swings are raised later in the class to allow focused stretching of shoulders, legs and hips, and opportunity for inversions (full- or partially- supported). Like an on-the-mat Restorative or Yin Yoga class, postures are often held for multiple minutes, often using additional props for comfort and alignment, and there is a relaxing ambiance of poetry, music, and letting go. Classes are limited to 6 students and are for ages 13 and older.

Aerial Slow Flow Yoga (Mellow-Medium)

This class has similarities to a traditional on-the-mat slow flow yoga class, except swings are used to provide support and allow further exploration of traditional yoga poses. Suspended swings are used to provide support for traditional postures, most often with feet on-the-ground, as well as to provide support for inversions, full-body stretches, and relaxed lying-down positions. Classes are limited to 6 students. No Aerial Yoga Experience Necessary. Class sizes are limited to 6 participants so pre-registration is recommended.

Aerial Power Yoga-X-Training (Spicy)

Classes combine the benefits of yoga practice with the principles of functional strength training. Classes are limited to 6 students and are for ages 13 and older.

Beginner Yoga (Mellow-Medium)

This class focuses on alignment, body mechanics, and breath with emphasis on step-by-step instruction. For beginners and beyond. Getting ready for cycling? Tennis? Hiking? Gardening? Or just want to touch your toes again? This class is perfect for men and women who want to ease their way into yoga. Each class will offer a balanced yoga sequence working with attention to proper alignment, learning to synchronize breath with movement, and finding our abilities to authentically express oneself through the ancient tradition of Yoga. No pressure. No judgement. Just practice. No experience necessary. Requirement: Able to get up and down off the floor with relative ease. For ages 13 and older.

Hullabaloo for Adults (Mellow)
