Class descriptions

Integral Hatha Yoga – Aimed toward managing the mind through meditative practice of asana (physical postures), pranayama (breathing practices), dharana (concentration), pratyahara (quieting of the senses) and dhyana (meditation), it may also include mantra (chanting) and netyavyamam (eye exercises). Hatha Yoga balances both the generative and receptive energies of the body-mind, and encourages stability and ease in all that we do. 

Hatha Flow – Embracing all aspects of Hatha Yoga, Hatha Flow moves through traditional yoga postures fluidly from one position to the next, incorporating breath into a moving practice. This dynamic approach can be excellent for balancing strength, stability and ease, while improving joint health and agility. While Hatha Flow tends to be gentler than Vinyasa styles (which tend toward the athletic), it remains dynamic and toning. 

PranaStretch - This approach is based on the teaching of Eric Beeler, and is the foundational practice informing ShinGaia Yoga, and the work of Ann Moradian. This approach is primarily a floor-class, linking the attention deeply and intimately through the breath with the body and all that can be found within it, and is largely focused on some of the more subtle energetics of yoga.

Gentle Hatha Flow retains the fluidity of Hatha Flow, while offering a less strenuous approach. It is excellent for gentle dynamism, and stress management.

Yoga Doux is a gentle Hatha form that incorporates breath and gentle movement to release tension, gently stretch, fortify and align the body for greater ease, mobility and strength. It is excellent for stress management, and for managing lower and upper back pain.

Chair Yoga combines seated and standing postures and practices and is accessible to those with restricted movement or limited space.
