CLASS | WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS
ADVANCED [TEACHER’S] PRACTICE
This class is for yoga teachers looking to deepen their asana practice. We will explore the more advanced peak poses that are usually not appropriate for a mixed level class. Strategic sequencing will allow us to play with deeper backbends, more challenging arm balances, away from the wall inversions and more! If you are a teacher or in our/a teacher training program and want to take your practice to the next level, this class is for you!
We suggest this class to anyone who is NEW to our studio. Ideal for those who want to learn the basic forms, and build a strong foundation for your Yoga practice. Everyone is welcome in this steady paced, level one class. Basic does not always mean easy, rest assured, this class is approachable throughout.
The Beginner Class is designed to introduce the student to the fundamental principles of alignment, breath work, and basic yoga postures. Emphasis is placed on knowledge, understanding, safety, and stability within each pose. This class is great for those who are new to yoga or for the practitioner who can benefit from going back to basics.
Mobility, Joint Strength, Body Control: Learn how to strengthen joints and improve flexibility. Teach the nervous system how to control acquired ranges in the body. Use active stretching to move beyond static isometric holds. Mobility refers to the amount of active, usable motion that one possesses. While improving mobility and movement potential, we will also ‘bulletproof’ (or safeguard) your joints so that movement can be executed safely. This leads to a reduction of pain and injury, joint health and longevity, as well as an increased ability to move freely and easily.
Chair Yoga offers students a gentle way to move through yoga poses with support. Tonia will lead students through a series of poses on chairs that promote movement without over effort and extra strain. This class is perfect for anyone with injury, arthritis, limited range of movement or for those just looking to move slower.
