Class description

Insight Flow
Explore yoga poses and breathing techniques designed to counteract stress. This class for all levels involves long holds of poses intended to release deeply held tension. Taught by trauma-informed instructors.
Gentle Yoga
Gentle Yoga focuses on releasing tension, connecting with the breath, and helping students gain strength and flexibility. The slower, gentle pace allows time to be present in each pose and provides time to make adjustments to invite more calm and ease to the mind and body. Gentle yoga is for all levels of experience, mobility, and flexibility.
Slow Flow
Moving through poses slowly allows you to drop into the body and move intentionally. Learn how to synchronize your breath with movement and improve the mind-body connection. This class is perfect for anyone new to yoga along with anyone looking to deepen their practice.
Restorative
Restorative Yoga is a gentle practice designed to calm the nervous system. Through the use of simple supported yoga postures, breathing, and meditation, we’ll cultivate a deep sense of relaxation to help manage fatigue, stress, anxiety, and depression. This is an all levels class.
Aerial Yoga Foundations
Aerial Yoga Foundations is designed to familiarize students with using the yoga hammock, gain confidence on how to get into poses safely, and build the skills needed for a fun and safe aerial yoga practice. This class is great for those new to aerial yoga as well as those who want a review of the basics to feel more comfortable and confident in the aerial hammock.  ***Please note this class needs to be taken prior to joining any other aerial classes.
Aerial Yoga-All Levels
Aerial Yoga explores traditional poses incorporating the silk hammock as a prop helping to ease tension, build core and upper body strength, increase flexibility, and balance, and bring a sense of calm and ease to the mind and body.  Our All Levels class builds on the foundational poses providing an opportunity to refine and advance them.  The class will include elements of stretching, strengthening, balance, gentle inversions, and restorative poses. **Aerial Foundations is a prerequisite.

Yoga therapy

Yoga therapy is the application of specific yogic tools and techniques to address an individual’s physical, psychological, and emotional needs. Yoga therapists have extensive training in adapting the practice of yoga, including postures, breathwork, meditation and mindfulness techniques to meet the needs of their clients. The practice of yoga therapy uses both top-down and bottom-up approaches that help regulate the nervous system. Top-down approaches use cognitive tools such as meditation, self-awareness, and personal inquiry to affect the state of the body, whereas bottom-up regulation uses the body through various movements and breathing techniques to regulate the nervous system, affecting thoughts and emotions. Yoga therapy provides tools to help support self-regulation and resilience.

Yoga therapy works with the natural capacity of the body and mind to support healing including:

  • Chronic pain, including low-back pain, arthritis, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and other types of pain such as that associated with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Mental health, including concerns like anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, addiction, eating disorders, and others
  • Neurological issues and complications of stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease, and traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Support for illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease
  • Overall well-being (you don’t need to be sick or in pain for yoga therapy to have value!) and healthy aging

If you’re looking for yoga therapy, Maureen, Nikki and Kim — all certified yoga therapists — can meet with you to assess your needs from a holistic perspective. What works for you physically, emotionally, mentally? They can design a program to help you facilitate sustainable change that leads to overall well-being.

Rates

Initial 60-minute intake and assessment: $110
Subsequent 60-minute sessions: $90
