HOT YOGA CLASSES


 

Venus (60 min) 


We will teach you how to do every posture in this class – no experience needed! A style of hatha yoga, in a room therapeutically heated to 100-103 degrees. This is a great all levels class and perfect for beginners! This class will give you a foundational introduction to hot yoga, and is as a class that can be practiced on a daily basis to strengthen and deepen your postures. You will practice a regular sequence of postures, coordinating breath and movement, with a focus on strengthening the cardio-vascular system. Build heat from the inside out; develop core strength, stamina and flexibility in this class by working every bone, joint, muscle, ligament, tendon and internal organ of the body. This is truly a transformational yoga class! Students are encouraged to practice at their own level. Modifications given for different levels of students.



Slow Flow (60 min)


This is a beginning to intermediate vinyasa flow class working to connect breath with movement. Sun salutations are worked into the series to warm your muscles and strengthen the upper body. Each class will be a little different but the overall format will be similar, so you will get to experience the creativity and individual style of the instructor while trying something a little different each practice. We will build up sequences based on traditional sun salutations and move through them a few times in order to gradually open the spine through repetition as well as develop muscle memory. A great class for anyone interested in optimum health and fitness or for developing more upper body and core strength. This class is taught at 92-95 degrees. This is an ideal class for intermediate students, some basic knowledge of postures is helpful. This class is also appropriate for beginners who are mindful of their abilities.



Vinyasa (60 & 75 min classes)


Great class for those who enjoy a power yoga class. This is an intermediate-advanced class that provides a challenging series. This class demands more physical effort than the Slow Flow or Venus class and is taught at 95 degrees. An intensive class designed to work and stimulate every nerve, muscle, joint and tissue of the body. Each class will be a little different but the overall format will be similar, so you will get to experience the creativity and individual style of the instructor while trying something a little different each practice. The instructor will guide the class through the flow a few times then you will have an opportunity to "flow on your own." This class is a whole body workout, which focuses on upper body strength, controlled breathing, continuous flow and will introduce and incorporate arm balances and inversions. Carefully sequenced flows, challenging for all levels but modifications will be given for all students. Accompanied by fun, upbeat music.



Yin Yoga (60 min)

This is a slow, passive stretching class perfect for beginners, those recovering from injury, or those just needing a gentle practice after a stressful day. Seasoned yoga students find Yin yoga to be a perfect compliment and balance to their more active practices. Yoga postures are taught in an environment geared toward restoration, healing and relaxation at 90-92 degrees. Emphasis on gentle strength building, flexibility, and the use of the breath. Yin yoga allows you to safely stretch and lengthen muscles, work joints and strengthen the deeper connective tissues. Poses are held as you slowly control your breathing to keep muscles passive, and work deeper into the joints and tissues. A much needed tool for anyone who needs to unwind a tight body, mind and heart.

KETTLEBELLS - BODY SCULPT 
From beginners to experienced can participate in this class together. Originating in Russia, a kettlebell is a centuries-old training tool that looks like a cannon ball with a handle. Kettlebell training elevates the heart rate for effective cardiovascular training by either using swinging movements utilizing the whole body along with momentum or used in more traditional press and squat exercises. Kettlebell exercises are whole-body exercises requiring full body integration and core stabilization. We combine a mixture of skills building and high intensity circuit training for a fun and challenging experience. The intensity of the session can be modified by using different sizes of kettlebells or by changing the number of repetitions. Kettlebell training will build long lean muscles, improve strength and power in the upper body, core and lower body and increase co-ordination, joint mobility and overall endurance.
