Gentle Intro to Yoga with Denver. Join us for a 6-week gentle yoga class for beginners. This class will focused on common foundational yoga postures at a slow pace. Students will learn about the basics of proper alignment and the importance of listening to their body. This class will incorporate meditation, pranayama (breath work), and restorative poses to connect the mind and body and promote relaxation.
Beginners' Yoga with Jess. Are you curious about yoga and what you've heard about its benefits? Are you intimidated by how yoga postures look, or think you are not flexible enough to try? Yoga can be for ebvery body (every shape, every size). In this class we will explore a variety of yoga practices in a supportive environment. Special emphasis will be placed on how a yoga pose should feel, not necessarily how it should look.
MID-WEEK BREATHER: with Jazzi. In this slow flowing class, students will synchronize breath with movement in a heated room, around 75-78 degrees. This is a great class for those who want the benefits of the warm room without the speed and intensity that often comes with a vinyasa or power yoga class. It is also a great class if you are looking to settle your nervous system or get a really good night’s sleep. In this class, you will open and stretch your muscles with slow movement, careful alignment and conscious breath work. It won’t be easy or lazy, just slow, thoughtful, and grounding.
TUESDAY MORNING GENTLE YOGAwith Sarah. For those new to yoga, or experienced students: a potpourri of yoga practices in a casual, friendly atmosphere. You don’t have to stand on your head or twist yourself into a pretzel to receive the benefits of a regular yoga practice. Easily-accessible yoga poses can lead to increased mobility/flexibility throughout the body, pain reduction, stress-relief, relaxation and an enhanced sense of well-being. We combine gentle yoga poses with vinyasa flow and mix in elements of pranayama (breathwork), relaxation, laughter and continuing education on many aspects of yoga. Appropriate for students of any age or ability.
RESTORATIVE with Sarah. Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra help us to transition from thinking and doing to feeling and being. We transition from the world around to us to the here and now: the present moment. We find the stillness to direct our awareness onto our own sweet selves: our bodies, feelings, states of mind and consciousness itself. As we release muscular tensions and emotional blocks, we can find a way for our busy 'monkey mind' to rest. In this class, you can expect a mix of gentle yoga, yin yoga, breathwork (pranayama), restorative yoga and yoga nidra (“the sleep of the yogis”), bringing you to the time and space to relax the mind. Relish, release, relax and refresh! This class is open to all, regardless of experience, ability, age or size.
Returning in February:
Candlelight Yogawith Jess. Endure the long winter with Candlelight Yoga. When it's cold and dark outside, it's time to rekindle the light within. We will focus on opening the heart chakra to encourage loving kindness towards the self. Let your inner flame burn away what no longer serves your higher self, and create space in the body for love, joy and compassion.
Currently on hiatus:
YOGA FOR STRENGTH with Kaitlyn. Currently on Hiatus Getting together to stimulate our bodies while relaxing our minds. In this yoga class we will be practicing balance, strength, and flexibility.
