HATHA Tuesdays | 7-8:15am CT Originating in India about 2000 years ago, Hatha is the traditional form of asana (posture) from which modern styles have emerged. It's a system designed to align body, breath, and mind. This steady practice focuses on alignment by holding poses for 5-10 breaths. The time allows for building strength, stamina, flexibility, and balance. Concentration and breath control are further improved through guided pranayama (breathing technique). This mixed level class may include Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations), arm balances, backbends, and inversions. Variations are given.
YIN Thursdays | 6-7:15pm CT This passive, meditative practice promotes stillness and relaxation through long static held postures (4-7 minutes in my classes) while softening the muscles. Yin taps into fascia and the connective tissues (joints, tendons, ligaments) to create more space and flexibility. Yin invites you to slow down and get deep into your poses to cultivate a more intimate relationship with your body, breath, and mind. Suggested props: blanket or towel, block(s) or thick book(s), bolster, cushions, or pillows.
VINYASA Saturdays | 9-10:15am CT Vinyasa is a dynamic yoga practice that cultivates presence by connecting movement with breath. Combining a mindful, steady pace of flowing transitions with static held postures increases strength and flexibility, as well as focus and mental clarity. This mixed level class may include Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations), standing and seated postures, arm balances, inversions, pranayama, and meditation. Variations are given.
STRETCH & RESTORE Wednesdays | 12-1PM CT Bottom Line Yoga
This class combines the passive nature of Yin and the dynamic quality of Hatha. Each class targets a specific area of the body and begins with 2-3 Yin poses to promote flexibility, breath and body awareness, and transitions to static held Hatha poses incorporating muscle engagement and alignment. This mostly ground based practice focused on breath and longer held poses invites a deeper understanding of body and mind.
