Class Descriptions

Mindfulness Yoga (60 min)

This is not your typical yoga class. It incorporates mindfulness into a movement practice so you build strength and suppleness, not strain. We may break down a typical yoga pose in order to identify areas that are weak, compensatory or don’t move well. This will improve the efficiency of your movements. If you want to develop strength, in a non-braceful, non-grippy way, this class teaches you how. Suitable for all levels: those who are new to yoga will learn a lot about their bodies, and those who are familiar with yoga will get an opportunity to slow down and check in. This will help you manage "information overload" and improve your ability to pay attention. Thus improving your yoga practice.

Go With the Flow (60 min)

Built upon a traditional Hatha yoga practice, and designed for those who want to move mindfully and find freedom in movement. Expect both floor-based and standing poses as you develop strength, flexibility and balance, along with some smooth flowing movement. Leave class ready to slip into bed for a blissful sleep!

Intermediate Hatha (60 min)

For those who want a faster paced class and have more experience, we build heat and increase strength, while reducing pain, tension and stress. Learn to move purely, minimizing compensations, in a very mindful way.

Somatics: Let's get flexible (60 min)

This class is for you if you want to learn more about your body and how it works, so that you are in the driver's seat when it comes to solving problems with tightness, aches and pains. Become a master of your body and therefore of your health!

I will break down this series into different focuses.  We will explore tight backs, tight hips and shoulders, limitation in rotation and side bending, etc.  Learn how to gain control of your muscles by using a special technique called pandiculation.  This method helps lengthen muscles to their natural length, thus freeing up your movements.  You may be surprised at how such small and gentle movements can make such big changes. This will impact your walking, your running, your yoga, your sports... your life!  Every day movements such as bending over, reaching overhead, getting up off the floor and turning your head to back up your car will be changed for the better.

Somatics for chronic pain (75 min)

If you're living with chronic pain, you are probably very good at blocking out the pain so you can get through the day.  If you've "tried everything" and would like to get out of this cycle, and don't want to resign yourself to living with chronic pain forever, I believe this class can help. Get in touch with your body and central nervous system and learn to work with it (not against it) so you are able to manage your pain. This is done through paying attention, moving slowly and putting out the least amount of effort.  Please contact me if you need more information. Class size limited to max 5 participants so I can give you the attention you need.

Somatics/Yoga Blend (75 min)

Apply the techniques of Somatics and see how it impacts your yoga practice for the better! Each week we will explore a different part of your body and how to release it so that it improves your yoga practice. For example, the ability to back bend is directly related to how free you are in the belly area (this is where "cut" abs are not desirable!). Being unable to bend down to touch your toes is due to tightness in your back. We will start each class with some Somatic exercises, exploring tight shoulders, hips, belly and back and will also look at rotation (twists) and side bending. The second part of the class we will do some yoga and you can see what impact the Somatics exercises have on your yoga practice. This series will give you the tools to help you manage areas of your body where you feel constricted and frustrated.
