CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Very Beginner’s: This class is designed for students who are new to the practice of yoga and need more attention as they gain dexterity and stability in the postures . Also good if you are returning after a long break. It is also for those who lack flexibility or have injuries that prevents them from going to a Level 1 class. We will focus on the details of alignment and the development of muscular core strength at a slow pace

Level I: Fundamentals of Yoga: Perfect place for beginners to start the yoga journey, and for experienced students who want to practice at a slower pace. This class is also for those recovering from injuries (doctor’s approval recommended). We focus on gaining understanding of body mechanics and alignment, creating ease in the basic yoga postures, Special instruction on breathing.

Level I / II: Mixed Level: This class is ideal for students transitioning from beginner’s to intermediate; Basic poses are explored with increasing detail interspersed with a slower flowing sequence.

Level II: Intermediate: Open to all levels, although some experience is recommended. Focused on dynamic and unique sequencing (vinyasa krama) of exercises incorporating all elements of the Shakti Yoga style to achieve harmony and balance.

Level II/ III: Advanced: Open to students who want to elevate their level of practice and extend themselves physically and mentally. Challenging postures are introduced and elaborated, with a focus on methods and techniques to develop steadiness and ease in these more sophisticated and rigorous vinyasas. Plenty of variations will be given to accommodate.

Yin Yoga: Yin  is a naturally contemplative practice – allowing one to ‘drop in’ and savor inner stillness. Yin Yogaalso offers a perfect complement to other more dynamic forms of Yoga or physical workouts. During a Yinpractice we hold poses with the muscles relaxed for long periods of time and effect passive stretches and therapeutic ‘stresses’ on precisely those body-tissues.
