Instruction

Hatha Yoga

All physical yoga is considered “Hatha”. But for purposes of explanation, Hatha is placing the body into a pose and proper alignment of the posture. It is a static practice that is held for several breaths. 

The word “Hatha” is comprised of “ha,” which means “sun” and “tha,” meaning “moon.” This refers to balance and union.

The benefits of Hatha yoga include:

Better sleep
Reduced stress levels
Enhanced mindfulness
Alleviates symptoms of depression
Improved balance and core strength

Vinyasa Flow Yoga

Connects one posture to the next using breath. This style of yoga resembles dance, where poses are seamlessly coordinated with breath. Broken down, the term Vinyasa means “to place in a special way.”

Vinyasa is a moving meditation, where the practitioner becomes fully absorbed and highly focused.

Vinyasa yoga is helpful in promoting:

The link between movement and breath
Stability and balance
Strength and flexibility
Lowering stress and anxiety

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a passive and gentle practice. Suitable for all levels. It is a practice of slow, long-held, seated or supine asanas that access the deeper levels of connective tissue and fascia. This promotes life force energy, also known as “chi” or “prana”.

The benefits of Yin are many, including:

Enhanced (deeper) stretching of muscles
A reflective sense of calm
Physically makes sitting for meditation easier
Furthers the inward journey
Promotes healing on a more subtle level
Stimulates circulation
Heals on three levels (spirit, mind, body)

Pranayama — Breathwork

In Hindu Yoga, Pranayama is the regulation of breath through certain techniques and exercise.

Pranayama is a system of techniques used to harness and manipulate universal energy known as prana. It is an integral aspect of yoga, often incorporated into asana practice or used as a preliminary step for meditation.

The benefits of Pranayama include:

Cultivates balance and wellness in body and mind
Extends and expands vital life force energy
Increases heart rate variability
Improves oxygen saturation
Rebalances the nervous system

Sound Healing

What is sound healing? In short, it’s a practice that uses vibrations (vocal or instrumental-like gongs, Tibetan singing bowls and tuning forks) in order to relax your mind and body.

Sound vibrations can:

Shift and clear energy blockages
Have a relaxing and restorative effect
Restore the mind, body, and spirit to a restorative state
Stimulate electric signals in the brain to support healing

Sound healing may include:

Gong Bath
Singing Bowls
Drumming
Ocean/Wave Drum
Bells & Chimes
Maracas & Rattles
Mantra & Kirtan
Harmonium
