Flow & Chill: We start with a steady practice matching movement & breath, then transition into a surrender of restorative yoga postures that use props to allow your body & mind to unwind. All levels welcome.
Functional Mobility & Movement: FMM offers an approach to yoga & movement that improves your mobility by loading your body with external forces such as resistance bands, weighted balls, blocks…whatever we can round up! These classes combine strength & flexibility to provide creative, new takes on traditional yoga poses & offers you a means by which to help support joint stability, posture & healthy movement patterns. All levels welcome.
Yin Yoga: Yin is a meditative, slow-paced class where poses are passive & held with props for 3-5 mins or more with the aim to target the body’s deep connective tissue, fascia, joints, ligaments & bones. Along with its physical benefits, It also improves energetic & mental well-being. Not appropriate for pregnant women and those who are hypermobile.
Yoga Fusion: This is a unique blend of yoga & movement practices designed to prioritize strength through one's available range of motion. This class will challenge you to go deeper into understanding how your body moves by deconstructing postures & experiencing movement in various planes, as well as with changing up our relationship to gravity. We will use: bolsters, blankets, blocks, straps, the Rope Wall, chairs, sandbags, resistance bands, and Yoga Tune Up® balls. Variations will be provided no matter what stage of any given pose you’re able to work into. Sometimes we’ll flow, sometimes we'll workshop, and sometimes we’ll hold poses as we strengthen, balance, and focus body & mind. Here’s where you’ll learn the appropriate way for your body to approach your practice - with humour, humility, & curiosity - not with force or ego. **It's always a good idea to have a pair of socks on hand and if you have your own Yoga Tune Up® balls, bring ‘em!** All levels welcome.
