CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

SUN VINYASA

Soft morning flow aimed to awaken the body, filling it with vital energy and adjusting all its functions. The perfect start of the working day. Suitable for all levels.

AERIAL YOGA

This relatively new type of yoga uses a silk fabric called a hammock to support the weight of the bodies, helping students to achieve various postures with more depth, ease and excitement. Practicing yoga in the air allows to move more freely, with less effort, by counteracting gravity. Suspension in the air releases tension on the bones and muscles, increasing flexibility and deepening the practice. Suspended yoga strengthens core muscles and increases spinal and shoulder flexibility.

POWER FLOW

Dynamic sequence which is built on a series of exercises aimed to develop and strengthen the general musculature of the body (shoulder muscles, core muscles, arms, legs and back muscles). Strongly recommended before the mastering of any kind of inversions. Suitable for all levels.

EVENING STRETCHING

Soft evening flow is ideal to relieve fatigue and stress after a hard working day. It releases negative emotions, harmonizes internal bio-rhythms and perfectly prepares the body for a healthy sleep. Suitable for all levels.

YOGA NIDRA

Yoga Nidra or "yogic sleep" is a form of deep relaxation usually practiced lying down. This class will begin with some gentle stretching and a short seated meditation; you are then invited to let go completely as you are guided into a full relaxation of mind and body.  Yoga Nidra is very complementary to physical yoga practice, helping you to calm your nervous system in order to reduce anxiety, stress and insomnia and bring you more clarity, connection and joy.

GENTLE YOGA

Gentle yoga is a variation of the hatha tradition of yoga. It was created to be accessible to all types of students, and to support their mental, physical, and spiritual needs.

Gentle yoga seeks to provide therapeutic modifications to common yoga poses. Its softer and somehow slower approach aim to be kind and gentle with your body and listen its needs.

Like other styles of yoga, gentle yoga relieves stress, increases flexibility, calms the mind and strengthens the body. It is a relaxing practice which helps enhance the range of motion.

HATHA FLOW

Gentle yoga practice that includes most yoga styles, friendly for those with wrist or shoulder issues. Hatha flow is a strong steady flow from posture to posture with focus on strength, openness, stillness, awareness and breath. It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices, such as meditation, and purify the physical body.

VINYASA YOGA

One of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. It is also called Vinyasa Flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together. Vinyasa encompasses many different types of yoga and each movement is synchronized to a breath.

FULL BODY SCULPT

Energetic style of yoga gymnastics. The consistent flow of movement strengthens and tones the entire body, dissolves bodily tension, improves stamina and works through the deepest muscles of the body and the joints muscles. Full body sculpt is ideal for those who enjoy a vigorous workout. It produces great results and is suitable for all levels.

YOGA TRAPEZE

Yoga Trapeze is the world’s #1 inversion yoga sling. While many of the yoga poses we do on the Yoga Trapeze look very similar to their mat-based counterparts, the dynamics are very unique. The Yoga Trapeze demands a great deal of upper body and core strength even with the most basic of movements such as getting in and out of the sling. It adds in the missing “pull” motion lacking in mat-based classes. 

Top Benefits Experienced in Class:

  • Spinal Traction: relieve back pain by naturally “hanging” upside down from your hips
  • Core Strength: build functional core strength naturally in dozens of dynamic and fun postures
  • Builds Grip Strength/Upper Body Strength: take care of hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders through safe and challenging strength postures.
  • Flexibility: practice deep, passive backbends, splits and hip openers in ways otherwise impossible to do on the mat.
  • Posterior Chain Strength: your spine is largely supported by the muscles along the backside of your body. Using the Yoga Trapeze can strengthen and balance these muscles.

RESTORATIVE YOGA

This practice is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. During the long holds of restorative yoga, your muscles are allowed to relax deeply. Restorative classes are very mellow, making them a good complement to more active practices and an excellent antidote to stress. This form of yoga seeks to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation and provides the body with an opportunity to renew and heal. Restorative classes are a good complement to more active practices.

 

YIN YOGA

Series of slow-paced floor postures held for longer periods of time and aimed to mainly work the lower part of the body: the hips, pelvis, inner thighs and lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues.

MEDITATIVE FLOW

Combination of meditation and gymnastics. A very slow flow paying particular attention to breathing in order to be fully connected to it. In this flow, poses are learnt in a way that it facilitates the transition between tension and connection to oneself leading to relaxation. Predominantly smooth and soft stretching of muscles and joints. Suitable for all levels.

YOGA THERAPY

This class helps to prevent and cure, to a certain extent, common physical ailments related to the joints, the digestive system, the respiratory system and the nervous system. This class is aimed to support a healthier living and is suitable for all levels.

KIDS AERIAL (9 - 14 years old)

Aerial Yoga allows kids to put their creative energy to good use. It features the use of hammocks suspended from the ceiling to give your child the feeling of a safe and weightless flight. Aerial yoga classes offer an opportunity for your child to develop a strong sense of balance as kids need to experience movement in different directions and orientations to develop proper balance. Additionally, your child can develop better body and spatial awareness. Aerial yoga benefits are countless: it also helps regulate the nervous system and develop motor skills. Many of the poses taught in aerial yoga incorporate core strengthening elements, which can help improve posture and prevent future injury. Other poses incorporate an inversion element, allowing your child to get the tummy-tickle of being upside down while feeling fully supported. Inversions help flush fresh blood and healthy hormones through your child’s brain, which improves self-regulation and aids in proper development. These elements, paired with a focus on slower, smooth meditative breathing, can even help children with anxiety or attention disorders to find a new-found sense of calmness. Last but not least, the practice of aerial yoga is fun, social and performed in a friendly environment!

Please approach us if your child is younger than 9, our aerial yoga teachers will assess his/her skills and maturity.

KIDS YOGA (5 - 14 years old)

Fun class that helps children develop great skills in a supportive and non-competitive environment. Kids benefit just as much as adults do from a practice of strengthening, stretching, relaxing, and letting go. This playful class encourages self-expression as well as building social skills. Children will strengthen their bodies as they learn how to focus through breathing and relaxation techniques.

Please approach us if your child is younger than 5, our kids yoga teachers will assess his/her maturity.
