Hot Freedom Flow – Inspired by Jonny Kest, this hot vinyasa class unites the breath with movement through innovative sequences and energetic music ranging from the “Golden Oldies” to “Hip Hop”! The teacher will guide you through a unique series of postures, then turn up the music, and encourage you to flow on your own, following your own breath – hence, freedom flow! The music is energizing, electric, and exhilarating, and ironically, by turning up the music, it is easier to find that moving meditation (quieting of the mind). What makes each and every one of us “perfect” is the fact that we are all so different and unique – this class allows you to explore your own journey. The room is heated between 90-95 degrees to encourage detoxing and assist with flexibility while also providing an additional challenge to the mind-body. Some yoga experience is suggested but everyone is welcome!
Yin Yoga – Most forms of yoga today are dynamic, active practices designed to work only half of our body, the muscular half, the “yang” tissues. Yin Yoga allows us to work the other half, the deeper “yin” tissues of our ligaments, joints, deep fascial networks, and even our bones. All of our tissues are important and need to be exercised so that we can achieve optimal health and vitality. Yin Yoga is primarily a series of seated postures that are held between 3-5 minutes. It is a deeply relaxing class that requires stillness and ease of mind.
