We have class styles designed for different interests in the practice of yoga
Each teacher’s class will be a unique style based on their own training, inspirations, practice, and experience.
All levels welcome.
In our Hatha classes postures are usually held longer than you find in our vinyasa classes, allowing students to spend more time finding their breath, balance & alignment.
Hatha classes are great for beginners.
Restorative Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga using props to support and ground the body so you can relax and allow a gradual deepening in each posture.
Breathing techniques will be used to help calm the mind and connect with the body and allow for a more meditative state.
If you have any injuries, please allow for the injuries to heal before taking Yin.
What is HIIT?
HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) alternates periods of short bursts of intense exercise with less intense recovery period. For example, 30 seconds high intensity exercise followed by 10 seconds rest. A number of studies have shown that HIIT stimulates the body to expend more calories and result in more fat burning both during and after a workout than continuous exercise.
Why Combined Yoga & HIIT?
The benefits to the body and mind that yoga brings and the cardio and fat burning of a HIIT workout are a perfect marriage. You warm the body up consciously, work the body intensively, then cool down, reconnect the body & mind as well as help the muscles recover by stretching them back out. It’s the perfect combination to add to strengthen your yoga practice, sculpt your body, or add to any other exercise routine you may have.
What would a sample class look like?
5-10 Minutes of warmup – Sun As, Sun Bs, etc.
30-40 Minutes of HIIT (4 Circuits)
5-10 Minutes of Cooldown – paschimottanasana, half-pigeon, supine twists, heart-openers, etc.
