Pain Care Yoga
This weekly therapeutic class meets every student exactly where they are – physically, mentally, emotionally. We use breath work and mindfulness to calm the nervous system, and reduce chronic pain (most students report best nights of sleep after these classes). We move carefully and gently to improve range of motion and stability.
PAIN CARE YOGA class is specifically designed for students who live with persistent pain and major movement limitations. This class provides practical tools and everyday pain management strategies that enable you, not your pain, to be in control of your life.
Top 3 benefits for me : better sleep (!), gaining valuable knowledge as to how the nervous system works in regards to pain, movement of painful areas in a safe environment with mindfulness of limitationsMelanie
OMGoodness, can’t believe the difference between yesterday and today. Slept through the night and huge reduction in pain, whatever we did, it worked!!! Thank you!Shelley
Therapeutic Yoga: Corrective Movement Yoga
Through breath, we invite our bodies to unravel. We ask our joints and muscles to move in a healthier, more balanced way. We find true, sustainable stability – stability that doesn’t ask your body to tighten, stability that doesn’t shorten your breath. The result? Embodied understanding of how faulty posture, movement, and stabilization habits can create persistently tight shoulders, low back, unstable pelvis or a “twinge” in the knee; visceral learning and real-life movement strategies to get you out of tension-filled rut.
CORRECTIVE MOVEMENT YOGA is geared toward new students wishing to establish safe movement patterns before attending a regular yoga class, and also for those who experience stiffness, tightness or discomfort on a daily basis.
Gentle Yoga for Beginner Students
From simple to complex, from slow to faster-paced… With its intelligent sequencing and relaxed flow, this class is a perfect introduction to safe asana practice. We use elemental actions (such as rooting through the feet; engaging the core, or properly activating our quads) as refined building blocks of complete postures.
GENTLE YOGA is designed for beginner students, and also excellent for experienced practitioners wishing to polish their movement patterns to prevent common yoga-related injuries (knee strain, hamstring tears, shoulder damage.)
Yin & Yang Yoga
To thrive and function optimally, human bodies need both activity and rest. Ying & Yang yoga offers the best of both worlds. The active flow of the yang practice takes full advantage of detoxifying essence of movement. The yin portion of the class, with its cooling influence, imparts balance and serves as a full-bodied introduction to static postures that slowly melt the tension, and to the depth of body-mind interactions.
YIN & YANG YOGA is excellent for both new and experienced students who prefer slower pace, longer held postures, and time to explore the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) activity of their minds. Therapeutically, yin yoga is used for injury rehabilitation, fascial re-patterning, and maintaining optimal range of motion.
I feel better physically…I breathe easier (it’s like my throat opens up), I feel energized and my body moves better. I feel this class could add 10 good years to my life.Ann
