In this class, we will gracefully synchronize quality breathing techniques with smooth transitions between postures for a revitalizing, full-body experience. Studies have shown that long term practice of this particular style of yoga can lead to improved muscle tone, better balance, increased lung capacity, and a higher metabolic rate. Use the body as a tool to calm the mind and reduce stress.
Hatha yoga is a branch of yoga in which we use the physical practices - including alignment based postures and breathwork - to build better control of our thoughts in order to move ultimately towards self-realization. We strive to balance the dualistic aspects of body and mind, with the understanding that these polarities are a natural part of life and are always in fluctuation.
Yin yoga is a practice that focuses on the deeper "yin" tissues of your ligaments, joints, and deep fascial networks. For this purpose, we relax the muscles and allow the body to gently open up. Expect to hold poses for extended periods of time (2 - 5 minutes) and resolve to find stillness. Come into each pose at the appropriate depth and come out of every pose with grace and intention.
Practice yoga with us from the comfort of your own home! Yoga is a great way to maintain range of motion in the body, keep blood circulation efficient, and reduce stress.
The room at our 290 location will be heated between 90 - 95 degrees with our infrared heating system. Hot yoga is great for increasing flexibility and improving lung capacity.
The room at our Louetta location will be comfortably heated to 85 degrees with our infrared heating system. Heated classes are a great way to lengthen and strenthen your muscles.
Why Private Yoga Instruction?
Private yoga lessons offer students the ability to focus on personal interests and health goals. Instead of following along with the yoga instructor in a public class setting, a private lesson allows an individual to set specific goals and plans, such as personal goals for flexibility, strength or meditation. Here are just a few reason why you may be interested in private yoga lessons from an experienced teacher.
