Weekly Yoga Workshop

This weekly workshop is an all levels class that focuses on a certain posture to help grow your practice; from arm balances, shoulder stands, back bends, and/or meditation. In taking time to honor the body and honor the mind, students learn to maintain their flow, breath, and focus.  The instructor is open to the requests of members about what they would like to work on.

Vinyasa Yoga Flow

Our Vinyasa Yoga Flow classes bring you through a series of postures while learning to use your breath as an anchor; bringing balance and alignment to the body to decrease stress. Taught to an ambient, downbeat tempo music background, you can expect to be invigorated during class and relaxed by savasana.

AERIAL YOGA

Aerial Silks Weekly Flow

In this class we will go over the proper form, engagement, alignment, grip and mobility needed for safe practice, while building strength and flexibility to develop your confidence to invert in the air! We will also cover the  necessary terminology and body mechanics of the fabric. Each class will start with a warm up that targets the focus of the class that day and end with a cool down, as we focus on stretching and range of motion. Come learn the basics of this elegant apparatus!

Aerial Silks Workshop

This is a precursor to the 60-minute Aerial Yoga flow classes offered in our fitness studio.
**Please review the Minimum Health Requirements.
This is a 1 and 1/2 hour workshop where the student will be taught the fundamental components of aerial fabric in a relaxed & fun learning environment.  The workshop format allows students to practice the “basics” necessary to move into poses (wrist wraps, footlocks, trusting the fabric etc.) and explore this unique style of movement. The workshop will begin with a brief anatomy lesson, as we discuss the specific muscles we are engaging, and how to strengthen them. We will practice stretches (without the knot), such as: pigeon pose, straddle variations, wrist and hand stretches, flexed and pointed toe stretches, amongst others. As well as stretches (with the knot): shoulder stretch, back drape, belly stretch, crucifix in knot, straddle back, gazelle, layback, and cocoon. We will go over strength routines to improve techniques: straddle up between fabrics, shoulder shrugs, front rolls, jump up and slowly lower down, knee lift, hollow body with legs together & alternating legs, knee squashes, back bend, and others.The workshop will then move to fabric skills, and will cover as many off this list as time permits: advancing without the knot: crucifix, climbs (regular & russian), figure 8 foot lock, hip lean, hip key, front roll, arabesque, full twist to hip key, full twist to split, foot lock roll ups, aerial dance foot lock, splits, crosses, beaman sit, splits roll around, up/down scale, front balance, mermaid, angel descent, double crucifix, knot dive, hands free descent, T lean, double crochet & tilt up, rebecca split, single leg roll up, iron cross, elsie cross, pike, drape slide down, plange, vertical splits, and wrist locks. There will be brief spotting in this class to ensure safe practice. This class is based on more of a circus style and less yoga based.
