What is yoga?
Yoga is a
tradition and a science with roots in ancient India that has evolved
over centuries to embrace the wisdom of many places and times. Although
it means something different to each person, it is rooted in oneness or
returning to the Source. Throughout history, it has been split into
various 'schools' focusing on different aspects of yoga. Each branch is
of the same tree, the tree of the Self. Yoga means union.
Styles and Teachings.
Yoga 101-is a basics class for those who want to begin or get a little more information about Yoga. This class is generally slower and perfect for those just starting out. We will work with all the essential elements of a well rounded yoga practice, but just a little slower.
Hatha Yoga -Represents opposing energies: hot and cold (fire and water,
following similar concept as yin-yang), male and female, positive and
negative. Hatha yoga attempts to balance mind and body via physical
postures or "asanas", purification practices, controlled breathing, and
the calming of the mind through relaxation and meditation. Asanas teach
poise, balance and strength and are practised to improve the body's
physical health and clear the mind in preparation for meditation in the
pursuit of enlightenment.
Vinyasa- Denotes a flowing, dynamic form of yoga, connected to breath or pranayama in which yoga and mudra transitions are embodied as linkages within and between asana.
balances the practices of Yin and Yang yoga, finding flow in stillness
and stillness in movement. In Yin Yoga, long-held passive poses draw
energy into the facia, ligament and tendons of the body bringing
‘juiciness” and flexibility to these often dry stiff part of the body.
In contrast, Yang Yoga (Vinyasa is type of Yang yoga) is a fluid
movement of poses linked together by the breath. Heat is created,
muscles are strengthened and we express ourselves energetically. In
this union of practices, every part of the body is enlivened and
Yoga Nidra's active meditation is both extremely powerful and easily accessible to anyone of any age or physical ability. This practice can bring about great healing and gives one the opportunity to lose body consciousness and make a deeper connection with what is beyond this plane. This class is taught in the style of Sri Dharma Mittra who says frequently that, "Relaxation is the best antidote for impurities." Come and embrace the opportunity to let go of stress, illness, pain, and disease. Dress very comfortably and bring bolsters, blankets, or other props as needed since you will want to find the ability to remain lying still during the entire practice..
Acro Yoga-Blends the spiritual wisdom of yoga, the loving kindness o Thai
massage, and the dynamic power of Acrobatics. These three ancient
lineages form the foundation of a unique new practice that cultivates
trust, connection and playfulness.
