Yoga is a system of living that is designed to promote peace of mind, deeper awareness of ourselves, and a healthy body. Tai Chi was originally a martial art and is now being practiced as a form of gentle and effective exercise, sharing many health benefits with yoga.

Vinyasa

Vinyasa is the linking of breath to movement. Vinyasa yoga classes tend to move more quickly than Hatha classes, as there tends to be more movement of the body with each exhale and inhale. Some asanas may be held for a longer period of time.

Kripalu

Kripalu is the compassionate yoga where an environment of acceptance and safety are created. The union of body, mind, and spirit are experienced through class structure of centering, breath awareness, warm-ups, a series of postures and a time of rest. The class aims to meet students where they are.

Chair

Chair with Sky Styx is a very accessible form of yoga as it is done in a seat and is easy for all levels. It is perfect for those with limited range of motion, or for those who find certain traditional yoga postures challenging. This class uses Sky Styx for approximately half the class to help add stability, strength, and flexibility in the upper body, while increasing the range of motion attainable.

Sky Styx

Sky Styx strengthens the core and extremities without straining the joints, tendons, ligaments or muscles. The practice helps unwrap chronic tightness in the fascia. The Sky Styx gives the student support in pressing down and lifting up, lightening the load when bending the knees, and acting with the body as another limb during balancing.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative yoga allows the body to center and come into stillness by utilizing props to help students comfortably hold a relaxing yoga position for a longer period of time. This type of yoga is known for its relaxing, healing, calming effect.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi for Arthritis helps participants to gain pain relief, better balance to avoid falls, and improve quality of life. The program improves muscular strength, fitness, and flexibility in a supportive community environment.
