Yoga Nidra. Rest and Restore. 30 minutes of Yoga Nidra is equal to 3 hours of Sleep. Yoga Nidra or "yogic sleep" is a sleep-like state which yogis report to experience during their meditations. Yoga Nidra refers to the conscious awareness of the deep sleep state.The practice of yoga relaxation has been found to reduce tension and anxiety. The autonomic symptoms of high anxiety such as headaches, palpitations, sweating, abdominal pain and gastrointestinal problems, respond well.
You will need 2 standard pillows, 2 blankets and your yoga mat. Any other props you feel would add to your comfort during yoga nidra is welcome. Please wear a warm layer.
Yoga is for everyone. We offer a variety of classes for every level and style. Don't know what you like? Come try a few classes.
Hip Hop Yoga. A vinyasa yoga class with a blend of hip hop instrumental beats. A creative freestyle flow with aspects of dance and movement. Classes are inspired by hip hop yoga founder Neil Patel.
Hatha Yin. A blend of Hatha Vinyasa and Yin Yoga.
Hatha Vinyasa. Hatha Vinyasa is a style of yoga characterized by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath. Commonly referred to as “flow” yoga. The variable nature of Vinyasa Yoga helps to develop a more balanced body as well as prevent repetitive motion injuries that can happen if you are always doing the same thing every day. Vinyasa practice generates heat and can add a cardiovascular component not always present in other forms of postural practice. Power Yoga classes have a Vinyasa component, but we often add music to motivate movement and explore more challenging yoga postures.
Laughter Yoga. Laughter Yoga is a unique exercise routine which combines unconditional laughter with yogic breathing (Pranayama). Anyone can laugh without relying on humor, jokes or comedy. Gentle warm-up techniques which include stretching, chanting, clapping and body movement. This is a powerful experience that often leads to a healthy emotional catharsis and also a feeling of release and joyfulness that can last for days.
Yin Yoga. Yin Yoga contains the ancient, and some say an original, form of asana practice. In a yin class postures are held for longer periods of time and are often supported with props to allow a deeper release. It is because of these long holds that the deeper structures of the body are opened, stretched and awakened. Years of a dedicated asana practice will make anyone healthier, stronger, and more flexible, but at some point, the muscles will have reached their limit of flexibility. New depths in postures, deeper ranges of motion, or an increased flow of energy may only be achievable by focusing on the deeper tissues of the body. This is why so many students are finding Yin Yoga to be the perfect compliment and balance to their more active, yang practices.
