Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga - All Levels
Ashtanga Yoga is a vigorous, flowing practice where we link our breath to our movements. If there are several beginners in the room you can expect a slower more instructional practice and a great opportunity to focus on your breath and your patience!
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga - 4 Beginners
The Fundamentals of Ashtanga Yoga will be taught in this class, introducing sun salutations, the standing sequence, and the first few seated postures. You'll be challenged but plenty of options to modify will be offered.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga - Level 1-2 (some Ashtanga experience)
This class will carry a faster pace than the "All Levels". Please have some experience with All Levels, or Beginner Ashtanga before attending this class or Full Primary Series.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga - Full Primary (experience required)
The entire Primary Series will be taught in its traditional pace. This includes sun salutations, standing postures, and all of the seated postures with the full finishing sequence. Experience in Ashtanga required. Please attend several Ashanga classes prior.
Flow & Restore (All Levels)
A perfect balance for you to work your body and calm your mind. Class will begin with a flowing yoga practice linking movement to breath, followed by long held deeply relaxing stretches using props for support. You'll leave feeling refreshed in every sense!
Rhythmn & Roll (All Levels)
This class introduces a 45-minute dynamic flow followed by a guided massage ball sequence (featuring Yoga Tuneup balls*) and ending with the long-held supported release of the whole body. Expect to strengthen, stabilize and experience targeted massage before deeply relaxing with the use of blocks and bolsters.
Hips n Hammies (All Levels)
We'll take you through a flowing sequence of postures to help open and stretch your hips and hamstrings, followed by restorative work to send you into the evening relaxed and renewed.
Flow to Nidra (All Levels)
This class will open and restore both body and mind. Class may include some meditation, breathing exercises, sun salutations, yoga postures and will end with a beautiful Yoga Nidra session. This is an excellent class for newcomers to yoga.
Restorative Yoga (All Levels)
This is a very slow class with long holds to tap into the deeper connective tissue and structure of the body, with an emphasis on relaxation. This popular class is perfect for those with a tight body looking to try yoga for the first time, or those who just need to slow down and take some time to rest and restore.
Yin Yoga (All Levels)
Yin is a practice of deep stillness, sensation & meditation. In this class you can expect to hold poses for longer periods of time (usually between 4-8 minutes) and find support with a variety of props. Yin Yoga differs from Restorative Yoga in the fact that in Yin we seek to find our edge of sensation. This edge allows a deep opening to happen in our connective tissues - our fascia, tendons, & ligaments. This is a great practice for flexibility, joint mobility, chronic pain management, stress relief, & so much more.
ONLINE MYSORE PROGRAM
w/ Jan Goranson
The Mysore method allows for 1-on-1 instruction and more specific guidance from the teacher. There is no prior knowledge or experience required to attend this class. The teacher(s) will assist each student as necessary and will work individually with the students, as they move at their own pace through a set series of postures.
In Mysore class you show up anytime during the posted hours and will be taught the Ashtanga sequence one posture at a time (practice starts at around 20 minutes). As you repeat the postures daily, you gradually increase your knowledge and create an independent, personal practice. New students are required to commit to a consistent Mysore practice of at least 3x per week.
Students interested to join Mysore are asked to email Jan Goranson to register.
