Yoga/Pilates: The best of both worlds of mat pilates and yoga with deeper core work and conditioning, using control, balance and breath. Elongation, focus, control and strengthening. My combination class provides a perfect blend of lengthening, stretching, strengthening and deepening your control and core strength.
Pilates: Learn techniques for deep control and strengthening of core muscles while toning the full body. Slower movement and concentration. Mat pilates exercises.
Core Yoga Flow - Core and Balance focus: Foundational Yoga with strengthening, grounding and core development. Standing poses building strength and balancing asanas are included. Core work on a regular and deep level. Breathwork and control.
Pre-Natal Yoga - prenatal yoga is a multifaceted approach to yoga exercise that encourages stretching, mental centering and focused breathing. Research suggests that prenatal yoga is safe and can have many benefits for pregnant women and their babies. Prenatal yoga can improve sleep. This yoga is also appropriate for after new mothers easing their way back into things.
Gentle/Beginner Yoga: Fundamentals and form are emphasized, verbal description with physical demonstration of poses are given.
I combine Gentle Yoga and Nidra for a 30 min. relaxing yoga, 30 min guided meditation class.
Chair Yoga: a general term for practices that modify yoga poses so they can be done while seated in a chair. These modifications make yoga accessible to people who cannot stand, lack the mobility to move easily from standing to seated to supine positions, or want a quick break from office work. It is an ideal way to begin yoga for many. Many people enjoy this virtual class as a way to work their way into yoga and for stretching and reducing stress
Restorative Yoga: It helps provide that physical and mental balance to prevent stress and anxiety, through the use of props that allow you to hold poses longer, giving you all the benefits of deep, passive stretching. A variety of props including blankets, bolsters and yoga blocks are used to fully support your body in each pose. Best for: Everyone. In particular, for anyone who has a hard time slowing down, who has experienced insomnia or who struggles with anxiety. Restorative and relaxing to the body and mind.
Yin Yoga: Yin has the same objectives as other discipline of yoga; however, it targets the connective tissues, such as ligaments, bones, and even the joints of that body that normally don’t get the love and attention necessary to keep the body in a healthy balance. These parts of the body are not usually exercised during a more “yang” style of yoga practice. (hatha, bikram,etc.) Yin Yoga is the PERFECT complement to styles that emphasize building internal heat and lengthening and contracting muscles. It is suitable for all levels of students.
Yin/Yang class: First half of class is a more active yoga class and then the 2nd half are for longer held Yin poses. Many people enjoy this combination.
Yoga Nidra: known as yogic sleep—is a meditation and conscious relaxation practice that is intended to induce total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. It is said that an hour of yoga nidra can be as restorative as four hours of regular sleep. Yoga NIdra is a guided meditation.
Meditation Class: Mindfulness, Techniques, Breathwork. I have developed a class to help people learn how to bring meditation into their lives in a realistic, effective way. I share different techniques giving a variety of ways to achieve a regular practice. This is a special class offering tools for mindfulness to enrich one's life.
