Yoga/Heated Power Yoga Basics
In this 30-minute instructional class, available in both heated and unheated options, the instructor will break down the vinyasa power yoga sequence in a workshop-like format. The slower pace allows time for detailed instructions on the asanas (poses) and time for questions. Everyone can benefit from this class, either as a starting point for those new to yoga or an addition to an existing practice.
Using long holds and a slow pace, Yin Yoga provides a deep stretch to the fascial tissues. Blankets, pillows, blocks, and straps provide support as you surrender to each pose. Each of the 3-5 seated or reclined poses allow time and gravity to lengthen and untangle the connective tissues surrounding the muscles and joints. Yin yoga asanas use lots of props, that are provided, or you can bring your own pillows, blankets, blocks, and straps. This class is beneficial on its own, or a great add-on to an HPY class.
