CLASS TYPES & SPECIAL WORKSHOPS WE OFFER

Vinyasa Yoga

This is an all levels vinyasa class taught by Michelina Payetta. This class focuses on more than the physical breath to movement.  This class allows for you to dive deeper if you feel called to.  This is a class where you can reach into your mind, heart, and soul spaces.  This is a safe place to work with those energies, take what serves you, and let it assist beyond the mat space.  From time to time, Michelina will also play the harmonium to bookend class.  She will bring in affirmation cards, and pick your special card.  She will theme weave practical thoughts.  She will share yoga knowledge.  You will leave this class feeling better throughout your whole being.

Ballet Barre Technique/Yoga Stretch Combo Class

Leslie Sikes leads this class, designed for the adult non-dancer who loves ballet, or the former dancer with a more "mature" body.  It is not your typical Barre Fitness class.  It begins with a traditional classical ballet barre workout focused on technique and posture to warm up the body.  There will be some Pilates work to strengthen and tighten core stability muscles crucial for supporting good posture.  It will end with yoga poses and stretches to lengthen muscles and breathing to relax the body and finish with a traditional yoga final relaxation.  It is a different kind of exercise class designed for any body type with no dance or yoga experience necessary.  A yoga mat and a dining room chair are the only equipment necessary.  

Slow Flow Vinyasa Yoga

Join Suzi McKinney in a 60 minute slow flow vinyasa style class on Wednesday mornings, 9:00 - 10:00.  We will be moving with our breath to welcome in the day, as well as embracing the natural ebb and flow of our bodies. This class is for beginners and intermediate yogis. Come prepared to "go with the slow flow" in this class. Please bring your own mat and props, like blocks and straps. See you on the mat!  This class will also be available on Zoom.

Accessible Yoga for Daily Living

Leslie Sikes will be teaching this class Tuesdays, 10:00- 11:00.  The class is designed for anyone who wants to try yoga for the first time or is looking for a basic class that will focus on alignment, breathing, and foundational poses and transitions.  The goal is to improve posture, strength, and mobility for performing everyday activities.  This class will be offered on Zoom.

Yoga Nidra

Katherine Matthews will be leading this class.  Yoga Nidra is a meditation technique in which the practitioner is guided into a deep state of relaxation while remaining fully conscious and aware.  The entire class will be taught with the practitioner relaxing with their eyes closed either lying down on their back body on their mat, or in a supported reclined position. It can help reduce stress and anxiety, relieve tension in the body, quiet the mind, create healthy pranic (energy) flow, and promotes better sleep.  This practice can also increase the capacity to observe the sensations and emotions that arise in the body without immediately reacting to them, helping one to become more mindful and connected to their higher self.  No experience in meditation or yoga necessary.  Suggested props: anything that will help the practitioner feel supported and comfortable in a still position for the class (such as a pillow, blanket, and/or yoga bolster.)

World Groove Dance Experience

Groove is a dynamically interactive and creative group dance experience. With great music, Jan Stevens, the facilitator, will unite everyone in a simple movement or rhythm as you dance in your own unique way.  While exploring a variety of styles and genres, you will experience a wide variety of movement from slow to heart thumping and strength building cardio. This is the perfect recipe for your body, mind, heart, and soul.

Hatha Yoga

Suzi McKinney teaches this class.  Hatha Yoga is a branch of yoga derived from the Sanskrit terms "ha" meaning "sun" and "tha" meaning "moon." Classes will start out relaxing with a focus on centering through the use of pranayama (breathing) or short meditations, then move onto warming up the body through sun salutations before progressing through the rest of the asanas which are typically be held for longer with an emphasis on alignment and sense awareness. Modifications and up levels make this class suitable for all levels of practitioners.

Gentle Yoga

Lynn Crawford teaches this class to help improve your strength, flexibility, and mobility through standing and seated yoga poses. This class will teach the fundamentals of yoga while allowing you to progress at your own pace. Stiff in the joints or can't touch your toes? No problem, yoga will loosen you up. Balance issues? Yoga will strengthen your core, which will improve your balance. You will walk out of class feeling better each time -guaranteed! 

Tai Chi Chih - Level 2

This class is for students who have had prior experience with Tai Chi Chih.  The focus will be on refining the movements and doing a longer practice. Teacher Gail Nieto will lead a guided practice on Zoom two times a week.  The sessions will include a beginning "meet up" with an emphasis on a focus for the practice, a short relaxation after the 40-45 minute group practice, and a "debrief" afterwards to reflect on the practice.
