The “power” in Power yoga isn’t about powering through the poses, but instead, finding your own power within. We will practice traditional postures, focus on alignment, and link them together using your breath. When challenged physically, the mind can begin to clear, and as the breath becomes steady and deeper, you’ll feel your own energy flow stronger, allowing your spirit to shine. Detoxify the body and purify the mind in this powerful class and leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Not recommended for brand new students. All-levels to Intermediate welcome.
Our guided or group meditation classes hold a space for individuals to explore their inner world while sitting in a supportive community. Together we will sit and find guidance from the help of a teacher, but as your journey progresses, you’ll find a greater sensitivity to Self and that individual inner voice begins to speak. Meditation brings connection within you and unity in your outer world.
Gentle yoga postures, heavily propped, are offered in this class. The postures are held for some minutes and incorporate props such as pillows, blankets, cushions, straps, chairs and the wall to help you stay in the pose comfortably for a full restoration. Expect breath awareness, deep openings and guided visualizations that will bring you to full equilibrium.
This class is recommended for all levels and is a particularly good class for those with stress or anxiety, those in transition, or for those who just need a break from moving too quickly. This is also a great class for students who are recovering from injuries. Please let your teacher know if you have injuries so that the teacher can adapt the practice to your needs.
