Class description

Insight Flow

Insight Flow links movement with breath to help cultivate strength, flexibility, balance, and ease and improve the mind-body connection. Class begins with a gentle warm up followed by flowing poses and transitions into longer held postures designed to release deeply held stress and tension. This class is for all levels and is taught by a trauma-informed yoga instructor.

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 and is taught by a trauma-informed yoga instructor.

Slow Flow

Moving through poses slowly allows you to drop into the body and move intentionally while releasing deeply held stress and tension. Learn how to link your breath with movement to help cultivate present moment awareness and improve the mind-body connection. This class is great for anyone new to and for those looking to deepen their practice. This class is for all levels and is taught by a trauma-informed yoga instructor.

Restorative

Restorative Yoga is a gentle practice designed to calm and regulate the nervous system. With the support of props such as blocks, bolsters, and blankets, restorative postures are passively held for longer periods of time to encourage a release of stress and tension. This deep sense of relaxation helps to manage fatigue, stress, anxiety, and depression. This class is for all levels and is taught by a trauma-informed yoga instructor.

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. Taught by a trauma-informed yoga instructor.

NOTE: This class needs to be taken prior to joining any other aerial classes; however, you may take this class as many times as you would like. Aerial Yoga frequently asked questions: AERIAL YOGA FAQ PAGE

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. Taught by a trauma-informed yoga instructor.

NOTE: Aerial Foundations is a prerequisite. Aerial Yoga frequently asked questions: AERIAL YOGA FAQ PAGE

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.
