Meditation

If you are looking to calm the mind; the peaceful practice of meditation will allow you to be the observer of the mind’s activities, thus becoming less involved in the urgency of emotional and mental drama. This practiced detachment is the first step toward the inner quiet. The mind, free of thoughts, becomes transparent, allowing us to experience the peaceful balance that always lies just behind the mind. When the mind can be still, you will experience the pure happiness that is your true nature. As the practice of meditation matures, this inner serenity and balance will make its way into all corners of your life and you will be happy and steady person on the outside that you truly are on the inside.

Meditation is an ancient tradition in all the world’s cultures that has been practiced and taught for thousands of years by a few. If you are one of the few who would like to discover your inner self and enjoy the happiness of your true nature, consider learning about the practice of meditation. If you can give yourself 15 minutes every day to sit quietly, it is certain that you will awaken the steady and cheerful person within.

Evening Yin Yoga

The slow, cooling yin yoga practice allows for the stillness and calm required for lengthening the connective tissues of the body: the joints, the ligaments and the tendons. The tissues are not vascular like our muscles, so our work in increasing their mobility must be slow, steady and consistent. By holding deep,  yet well-supported mat postures for 3 to 5 minutes with the use of various props, and allowing gravity to do the work ,we create flexible and strong joints. This full body practice will allow you to feel a release in the body, mind, and spirit.  Yin is contemplative and by nature also allows students an opportunity to develop a meditation practice. Studio provides all props.

Version 2

Bikram Method/ Hot 26

Bikram Method/ Hot 26 Yoga Class is a twenty-six asana (posture) series designed to scientifically warm and stretch muscles, ligaments and tendons, in the order in which they should be stretched. The first series of postures consists of the Standing Series followed subsequently by the Seated Series. The room is approximately 103-105 degrees with 40% humidity.

It may take a few classes for your body to adjust to the heat. Yoga is very emotional and works on many levels to heal. You will be practicing the same 26 postures in each class. You will feel different in every class because your body is different every day.  Each posture is designed to complement each other, as they stretch and strengthen the necessary joints, ligaments and muscles that become important in preparing for the next posture.

Doing these asanas requires a combination of concentration, determination, patience, and self-control. Remember to breathe. Do your best and listen to your body. The end result will be a rejuvenated, re-energized self (mentally, physically and spiritually).

If you feel overwhelmed due to heat or exhaustion, please take rest. Do not let your ego take over– it won’t serve you. 

NOTE: Please arrive hydrated and be prepared to sweat. Please bring a mat, hot yoga mat towel, and water. Note that we rent all of these items as well. The main goal is to try to stay in the room and to keep coming back!

Adaptive Yoga for MS, RA & other Movement Disorders

This adaptive yoga class will embrace the best of yoga by combining mind, body, and soul. Through modification and relaxation we will recognize our own abilities to strengthen, energize, and improve postures. We will emphasize the importance of breath and self-awareness while embracing life’s ever changing moments. 

Symptoms from movement disorders are known to impair balance and limit ROM. Numerous studies have concluded that balance, flexibility, strength, and overall fitness improve when patients with movement disorders take part in yoga. Modified poses as a part of Adaptive Yoga for Movement Disorders ”increase flexibility; improve posture; loosen tight, painful muscles; build (or rebuild) confidence; and, through these benefits, enhance quality of life.” – American Parkinson’s Disease Association

Incontinence Series

Urinary incontinence affects millions of women. Many of them suffer silently, embarrassed or unsure of what to do. It’s a problem that can drastically affect one’s quality of life, causing sadness, fear, or shame when away from the comfort of home. But, there is hope! Yoga can help you tune into your own body and stabilize your pelvic floor, the group of muscles that line your pelvis and hold your organs inside your body. A study at UCSF found yoga effective for this condition. There was a 70% improvement rate in stress incontinence in 6 weeks!

In this series of Pelvic Floor (TM) workshops, we will become aware of our own bodies, using breath and visualization to access the pelvic floor. We will use specific exercises and yoga poses to stabilize and strengthen our pelvic floors. The goal is to have more control over our bodies and more freedom in our lives!
