Hatha Yoga is the backbone of all Yoga practices. Hatha uses asanas (postures) and stretches in combination with the breath to develop flexibility and relaxation. Hatha Yoga encourages proper alignment of the body and brings balance, strength, and calmness to the practitioner. Our Hatha Yoga classes are based on the classic and ancient practices with emphasis on proper alignment.
VERY APPROPRIATE FOR BEGINNERS! ALL LEVELS WELCOME!
YIN YOGA the "Yoga of Surrender"
Saturdays at 9:00 am
Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. We surrender into the poses as we hold them for one to five or more minutes.
Feel free to bring your own bolsters, pillow, and blankets!
YOGA NIDRA the "Yoga of Relaxation"
The last Sunday of each month at 7 pm.
Suitable for EVERYONE!
Yoga nidra (Sanskrit: योग निद्रा) or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the "going-to-sleep" stage. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. This state of consciousness (yoga nidra) is different from meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required. In yoga nidra the practitioner remains in a state of light pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses) with four of his or her senses internalized, that is, withdrawn, and only the hearing still connects to the instructions. The yogic goal of both paths, deep relaxation (yoga nidra) and meditation are the same, a state called samadhi (meditative consciousness).
Yoga nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness. In lucid dreaming, one is only, or mainly, cognizant of the dream environment, and has little or no awareness of one's actual environment.
The practice of yoga relaxation has been found to reduce tension and anxiety. The autonomic symptoms of high anxiety such as headache, giddiness, chest pain, palpitations, sweating and abdominal pain respond well. It has been used to help soldiers from war cope with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The practitioner begins by quieting the overactive conscious mind then moves into a meditative state, gradually finding a state of “ultimate harmony,” in which the brain waves slow down and a subtle euphoria emerges. Though most practitioners don’t slip easily into the more advanced stages, they still tend to emerge feeling rejuvenated. “Yoga Nidra uniquely unwinds the nervous system, which is the foundation of the body’s well-being.”
