Hatha yoga is a combination of physical poses and connection to breath in a non-flow nature. These are typically practiced more slowly and with more static posture to build strength and enhance flexibility. The slower pace allows you to connect deeply to your body and mind while being able to adapt the practice to meet your specific needs.
Yin yoga targets your deep connective tissues, like your fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. It’s slower and more meditative, giving you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body. Because you’re holding poses for a longer period of time, Yin yoga helps you stretch and lengthen those rarely-used tissues while also teaching you how to breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts.
Restorative yoga is a deeply relaxing practice where bolsters, blankets, and blocks are used to support your body in restful positions. The aim of this practice is to bring restoration to the health and well-being of your body, mind and nervous system. In a Restorative yoga class, the completely supported poses are held for longer periods of time anywhere from 5-30 minutes. During this time, your body, mind and nervous system have the opportunity to relax comfortably, slow down and move towards a state of peace.
Meditation is a practice of focused attention and awareness in efforts to quiet the fluctuations of your mind and create a deeper connection with yourself. Our instructors offer greater understanding and guidance of this practice.
