Class Descriptions

Morning Vinyasa. This is a body friendly vinyasa yoga practice with a focus on unifying the breath, body and mind. Haylee's class focuses on transitions from one place to another and discovering the most beneficial place for each participant to be within the asana.  This, in turn, can reveal how our body's wisdom on the mat reflects our life. This class is fused with elements from dance, pilates, gyro, and franklin method to allow for a dynamic and fluid flow.

Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, derives its' name through a focus on awakening Kundalini energy through regular practice of meditation, breath work, chanting, and yoga postures. Kundalini energy sits at the base of the spine and when activated can have a transformative effect on the mind, body, and spirit. Kundalini Yoga works to create balance and awareness by utilizing the entire Chakra system. Through this ancient technology you will peel back the layers of the unconscious to discover your truth. 

Tao Yin Yoga is a practice for cultivating chi energy through posture, movement, and breath. The style combines elements of Kundalini and Hatha Yoga, as well as Qi Gong and Acupressure. Suitable for all levels, this practice will leave you feeling euphoric and energized, rather than exhausted.

Qi Gong is a practice originating in China approximately 5,000 years ago.
The purpose of Qi Gong:  chi=energygong=cultivating movement. With meditative breathing and slow movements we allow energy (chi) to travel through the twelve major meridians in the body.  The movement of energy is intended to keep the mind and body in optimum health which helps toward healing and preventing sickness and disease. We will work to unblock stagnant energy through self massage (moving chi) in a seated position and then move to standing postures incorporating slow movement which, when all energy movement is combined, will help nourish the organs and mind, thus connecting us to becoming whole and healthy beings. Meditative music will accompany the movements.

GYROKINESIS® body conditioning technique simultaneously stretches and strengthens the body with minimal effort, while increasing range of motion and developing coordination.  A typical class begins by practicing self-massage and simple breathing patterns known as "Awakening of the Senses." Participants then begin to mobilize the spine through a series of simple and organic movements such as arching, curling, bending, twisting and spiraling, all while seated on a stool.  As the class develops it moves to the floor, or a mat. More vigorous movements, with co-ordinated breathing patterns, are executed to enhance trunk stability, stimulate the cardiovascular system, build strength, and increase endurance.  Class often finishes with a short relaxation period. The practice of GYROKINESIS® exercise can result in aerobic and cardiovascular stimulation, enhanced neuromuscular awareness, and an increase of mobility, strength, and coordination in the spine, shoulders, chest and hips.
