Foundational Beginner is the basics or foundation of each and every pose. Included is the principles behind why and what benefits are in each posture. I am encouraging you throughout class to tune into your own body as to avoid injury.
Absolute Beginner Yoga is a slower paced class learning basic sequences and basic stretches, breathing exercises and a short meditation. Props will be explained and used to benefit any limitations you may experience.
Intermediate Yoga is a faster paced class with full sun salutes, core series, downward dog holds with up dog variations, three-legged dog and prep poses for headstand, handstand, shoulder stand, forearm stand...includes meditation and pranayama in every class.
Gentle/Chair Yoga is for people with injuries, limitations from surgeries, seniors, anyone who thinks they can't do yoga. We work on modifications for each foundational pose and do everything a beginner class does just with a more gentle intention to work within our own limitations to move beyond the stiff joints and into a more supple body and mind. There are some Self massage techniques included in this class.
Vinyasa: Mulitple levels class which has a nice pace flowing breath with movements. "Vinyasa" in sun salutes is the portion of flowing from Down Dog into Cobra/Up Dog on one breath; this creates a steady pace, builds upper body strength and stretche all areas of the spine.
