A Vinyasa Flow Community
At LoveYoga, we do not have "levels" of classes. We believe that yoga is NOT a competitive sport or activity, but by true definition, yoga is a "yoking" or coming together of all of the parts of yourself that have been fractured from your own understanding of the divine. Is it a great form of physical exercise? Absolutely! It is NOT, however, something you have to be "good" at or young and flexible for. Yoga is for the mind, the soul, the spirit. If you show up, breathe, smile and leave feeling like you have a little more space in your busy brain or knotted up body, then you have had had a perfect practice! It's as simple as that!
There is no need to pre-register, take a beginners class, or start with an "easy" class. All of our classes are a bit different. We encourage new students to try different classes and different teachers and find where they feel the most at home. We do offer a 3-week beginner series on Saturdays once every 3 months, but again, it is not necessary to get started. In truth, we are all beginners always. Welcome to your journey!
Vinyasa Flow (LoveYoga Flow) -
Vinyasa means movement (asana) synchronized with breath (pranayama). Vinyasa Yoga is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling while flowing, almost dance-like, throght yoga postures.Consider Vinyasa Flow Yoga a moving meditation. When all is linked together, you find your "oneness".
Vinyasa Light -
Same as Vinyasa Flow Yoga, but with a slightly lighter pace and more modifications. This is an excellent class for beginners who want to get a taste of Vinyasa Flow yoga, or for anyone who tends to be be hyper-perfectionistic. This class will challenge you to back the heck off a little!
Ashtanga Series -
A system of yoga transmitted to the modern wold by Sri K Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series (set series) of postures - a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind. "Practice and all is coming."
Kids Yoga/Acro -
This class is a kid-friendly but authentic yogic experience for kids ages 5-10. Kids will experience meditation (mind-calming techniques), yoga poses done in a fun and engaging way, and some basic acrobatic and flexibility work. Class is 45mins long. Kids need their own mats. Tuition for this class is $45 per month
Restorative Yoga -
This is the adult nap-time that we all need and crave. Restorative yoga is the centering of your breath and body - aligning the physical and mental by practicing stillness or gentle movement for extended periods of time. Props (bolsters, blocks, blankets) assist you in holding the poses longer and help keep gravity from pulling too deeply at the connective tissue. Restoritive yoga is an exercise in patience, stillness, and unwinding.
Slow Burn Vinyasa -
Same structure as the Vinyasa Flow class, but the poses are held for longer periods of time allowing for build up of heat in the muscle. Want to get strong? This is your class!
