Yoga Nidra

Monday’s 7:45-8:30pm

Also known as yogic sleep or sleep with awareness, Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice that is rapidly gaining popularity in the West. It is intended to induce full-body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness. “We live in a chronically exhausted, overstimulated world,” says Rod Stryker. “Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of complete relaxation, holistically addressing our physiological, neurological, and subconscious needs.”

During a typical class, we use a variety of techniques—including guided imagery and body scanning—to aid relaxation. And unlike a quick Savasana at the end of asana practice, Yoga Nidra allows enough time for practitioners to physiologically and psychologically sink into it—at least 20 to 45 minutes.

Restorative Yoga

Tuesday in Edson 6:30-7:45pm

You’ll love it, it’s kind of like adult nap time! Adult naptime is a bit of an exaggeration, but we do start class off with Savasana sometimes. .., The other thing that appealed to me are all of the props – a blanket, a pillow, an eye bag, a strap for my feet, and blocks.

In truth, restorative yoga is simply that – restorative. It is the centering of your breath and body – aligning the physical and mental by practicing stillness or gentle movement for extended periods of time. The props assist in helping you to hold poses longer.

As for restorative yoga, I almost think it should be called meditative yoga rather than restorative. I don’t think I’ve ever tried an exercise class where my body was less challenged and my mind more challenged. That is not quite an exact statement as the act of simply sitting cross-legged for extended minutes can be physically challenging as well. In such moments, the willpower that serves so well in regular exercise does little for you. You simply have to sit with that discomfort and find a way to face and move through it.

Restorative yoga is intended to take the mindfulness that is found in all disciplines of yoga to the next level. It’s still and slow, and it’s as much (or more) about the mind as it is the body.

Morning Hatha Flow Yoga

Friday 9:15-10:30am

Suitable for all levels.  Hatha is a potent alignment-oriented practice that emphasizes the forms and actions within yoga postures. Traditional asanas are held in accurate alignment. Emphasis is placed on core strength, flexibility and balance as well as concentration and breath (pranayama) control. This class is based on physical postures (asanas), deep breathing, mindfulness (meditation) and listening to the body.
