Yin & Warm Yin
HY’s Yin Yoga class is a powerful practice which targets the deep connective tissues of the body (tendons, ligaments and fascia). If it’s a Warm Yin class the room is warmed to encourage a deeper release. Each posture is held for longer periods of time allowing a slow and safe opening of the tissues, leaving the yogi with an overall feeling of spaciousness and peace. A Yin Yoga class is the perfect antidote to stress and a great counter balance to more active styles of Yoga. Although Yin Yoga is a more passive practice it can be quite challenging due to the length of time postures are held. This Yin Yoga class is open to All Levels.
Yin/Yang & Warm Yin/Yang
HY’s Yin/Yang is the perfect balance of strength and flexibility to cultivate a sense of energy and peace. The class begins with a Yang practice (a Vinyasa Flow) to energize and strengthen the body and finishes with a slow and deep practice (Yin postures) to open the body and still the mind. All Levels.
Kundalini, Yoga Nidra and Gong
This class will begin with movement and breathwork drawing from the practices of Kundalini yoga to open and prepare the physical and energetic bodies for deep relaxation. Participants will then be guided through a deeply restorative Yoga Nidra meditation and the sound current of the Gong will be used to enhance your relaxation experience. Please bring any props you may need to be comfortable during your practice, a small pillow or support for your head and a rolled up blanket or bolster for underneath your knees can help with your relaxation during the yoga Nidra experience. All Levels.
Stretch and Strength
This class is an excellent way to add some variety to your yoga practice! As well as giving the fascia, tendons, ligaments, and muscles some much needed stretching; it provides yogis with extensive tools for strengthening the joints. It is also extremely beneficial for participants who have a history of pain, injury, or joint discomfort, hyper mobility, limited mobility or find some poses to be inaccessible in “flow” classes. All Levels.
HY’s Hatha Yoga is a simple yet effective class without the Vinyasa sequence between poses. This slower paced class will incorporate dynamic and static stretches, as well as build strength and confidence within your practice. This is a next step up from a beginner class and is very good for past or present medical concerns, injury or illness. Class consists of fewer poses held for an extended period of time.
HY’s Restorative Yoga class is a quieting, supportive and deeply nourishing practice. Restorative poses are done by lying passively over props for a prolonged period, to achieve a deep level of relaxation. The slower pace and deep breathing triggers the parasympathetic nervous system which helps to mitigate the effects of the regular fight-or-flight stress response that can be damaging to your physiology and well-being. The overall calming effect on the nervous system sets a deeply relaxing tone for the class that comforts your mind and body down to the cellular level. Through the techniques of a Restorative Yoga practice, you awaken grace, poise, flexibility, balance, strength, and present moment awareness. No prior yoga experience necessary. All Levels.
