Interweave the extremes! Work some highly intense intervals of plyometrics, repetitive core exercises and strength moves into a flow of more traditional yoga asana. This 60 minute class moves at an energetic pace to a motivating playlist and includes a final relaxation for the physical, mental and spiritual bodies in union.
90 minutes of breath and sweat infuse this heated vinyasa flow. A quote, lesson or inspirational reading along with chanting and a relevant playlist set a focus for the duration. Meditation and Savasana with a cold towel seal it in before the end.
20 minutes of cycle build heat immediately followed by transition to the mat for 35 minutes of yoga to re-expand the hips and the shoulders, find balance and release all that doesn't serve you. Savasana is a welcome friend to finish this class.
THIS is a profound but simple way to physical, mental and emotional relaxation. Through the use of guided visualizations YOU will be able to enter a state of deep rest and penetrate the otherwise inaccessible recesses of the mind. Systematic relaxation of the body and senses through the use of guided visualization allows the individual practicing Yoga Nidra to move with consciousness into the sub-conscious and unconscious realms and open up the possibility of releasing the ingrained patterns that bind us and cause our suffering. This can be done as a short practice at the end of a more physical yoga class or all by itself for true commitment to what is translated to yogic sleep.
Props to relaxation! This class is for anyone suffering from being overstimulated, overdone, overworked, overloaded--or over "it." No stops to the props in this class to help you feel supported and cozy. Typically 75 minutes, this class includes a mere 5 or 6 poses which allow time for breath and ease and true restoration to the body, mind, spirit.
