CLASS DESCRIPTIONS 

 

BARRE

 Lots of fun using the ballet bar to tone your booty, abs, thighs and arms!!   Also helps with joint stability as it works the smaller muscles around hips, knees and ankles.   A class full of challenging and functional exercises. Focus on posture and precision. Choreographed to music.

 

CHAKRA YOGA

Chakras are energy centres in our bodies.   Each Chakra helps us with a different area of our lives whether it is personal power, speaking our truth or feeling safe and secure.  Many times our Chakras are out of sync and yoga can help us find balance and more serenity in our lives.  We will journey upward from your root  to your crown , learning yoga poses, breathing techniques and meditations that will activate each Chakra and help you on your way to healing, balance and wholeness while still enjoying a slower paced but full yoga workout.

Suitable for beginners or experienced yogis who prefer a slower-paced class

 

GENTLE/BEGINNER (HATHA STYLE YOGA)

This class is perfect for students who are new to yoga – or for the experienced yogi who prefers a slower-paced class.  Basic  yoga postures (asanas) are taught with a deep awareness of correct alignment, precise actions in the body and attention to the breath.  Modifications will be offered to give you more ease  – or more challenge.  This is a “no-pressure” class in a warm and welcoming environment!

 

GENTLE WITH RESTORATIVE

The best of both worlds! This class combines the deep relaxation of long held restorative postures using props such as bolsters, blocks and blankets (which we provide) with  Hatha yoga floor and standing poses (asanas). This allows you to stretch, strengthen, relax and restore while using the breathe as a healing tool for the body and mind.

 

HOT FLOW

A vinyasa (linking movement with breath) style class of creative, flowing yoga poses with holds in the heat (35 to 40 C) designed to stretch, strengthen and challenge the body and mind.   A good general level of fitness and some yoga experience is recommended. Come prepared to sweat!

 

KUNDALINI YOGA

Explore how the practice of Kundalini yoga can impact your life. Taught by Deanne Enright, a graduate of Sat Dharam Kaur’s teacher training programme, you will be led through chanting, mantras and yoga poses and sequences to enhance your life.  Deanne’s approachable teaching style gives you reasons behind what you are doing lending a depth and purpose to your practice.

 

SMART KIDZ YOGA

Specifically designed for kids ages 6 to 12.

These classes will: integrate Brain Gym exercises with traditional Hatha yoga poses to:
— increase your child’s ability to focus in class
— increase their ability to self-regulate
— increase feelings of calm and peacefulness

We will learn to recognize their emotions and demonstrate physical exercises they can do to help them return to homeostasis (a place of being centered, grounded, or feeling better). We will spend a portion of the class learning midline exercises like cross crawling, that help harmonize and integrate the right and left hemispheres of the brain.

MID DAY BOOST (Yoga for Lunch!)

a 45 minute vinyasa (flow) style class to boost your energy level at lunchtime!  A series of flowing yoga poses designed to get the heart rate up, while strengthening and challenging the body and mind.

 Yes …..we will end with Savanasaaaahhhhh!

RESTORATIVE

This is a great class for those of us limited by pain or injury.  The pace of this class is slow and we use tools (such as bolsters, blocks and blankets – that we provide) and modifications to allow our tired and sore bodies to release and renew. 

 

STRETCH, STRENGTH, STILLNESS

Don’t think you are flexible enough for yoga?

This class is designed for the beginner yogi – or for experienced yogis who want a slower-paced class.
The class includes a combination of gentle stretches, then transitions into a series of poses to build strength in the legs, hips, back and shoulders and ends with some stillness to quiet the mind after a busy day

(Psssst…..seasoned yogis:  if you have been wanting to introduce a friend or partner to yoga, this is a good one!)

 

SWEAT, RELAX, RESTORE

Done in the heat,  this class will start with energetic,  flowing poses to keep you moving and work you hard! Then we will slow things down and end with some restore time. This class is designed to get you deeply into yourself – mind and body!  An energizing yet calming experience.

 

T.Y.P.

A flowing combination of Tai chi, Yoga and Pilates while moving to music. This is a challenging class that will increase your overall well being, improve body strength, core and balance.   Expect  to be challenged.  Be prepared to sweat.

 

VINYASA FLOW

This class will help build strength, flexibility and probably make you sweat!  Incorporating flowing sequences of yoga poses with gentle holds, this class has a meditative quality to it as we link each movement to our breath.  Some alignment cueing and pose instruction throughout the class make this a great introduction to a flow-style class.  

 

WARM DETOX FLOW

  This class offers you a  series of challenging,  flowing yoga poses and strength- building holds in the warmth ( 25 – 30 degrees C) to release the weekend “bads”.  A wonderful way to end your weekend  and  to help you prepare  for the week ahead.  Knowledge of/ experience with yoga is recommended for this class.

 

YANG/YIN (HOT OR NOT)

A excellent addition to any athlete’s  workout regime – no matter what your sport.  This class provides you with  an energetic series of flowing poses (yang) followed by a series of longer held (yin) poses.  The flowing sequences will challenge your breath, your strength and will stretch your muscles.    The yin poses are held for 2 to 5 minutes giving you space to settle deeply into the pose and allows your connective tissue (joints, tendons, ligaments) to strengthen.  A great way to deepen your body/mind connection too.

 

Strengthen Your Body, Stretch Your Mind.  Discover Yourself.
