Class Descriptions

Relax and Restore

A restorative style of yoga for all ages and all body types. This class will teach you how to release tension stored in the spine and muscles of the body. You will learn to relax in a way that is healing from the inside out. Especially beneficial to those who suffer from chronic pain such as fibromyalgia, low back pain and injuries. The poses (done lying down or seated) are supported with props and held longer in order for the body to relax and let go of tension. Class includes guided imagery and deep relaxation. Excellent class for beginners.

Peaceful Yoga

Deep breathing, gentle stretching, guided imagery and meditation are used to cultivate a sense of peace and calm in both your body and mind. This is an excellent class for individuals dealing with anxiety, depression or high levels of stress. The poses will be very easy to follow so beginners are welcome. A very gentle class for letting go of tension and stress.

Hatha Yoga

Our most popular class includes flexibility, strength and balance postures with an emphasis on deep breathing and relaxation techniques for decreasing stress. A well-rounded class, that is appropriate for all levels. Class includes sun salutations and has a great focus on strength. We recommend this class for beginners with no physical limitation.

Qigong

Qigong is the term for many types of gentle movement and concentration practices stemming from China. It involves mindfully linking gentle movement with the breath. Today, holistic practitioners promote qigong for its proven stress-reducing benefits, plus its ability to improve flexibility and inner-focus. Science confirms qigong improves energy, inner peace, strength, sleep quality and vitality.  This makes it a great exercise choice for anyone who’s looking to improve range of motion, relaxation or energy work.

QiGong Classes are taught by Gigi Jantos.

Gentle Flex Strength

This class is a gentle version of our Regular Flexible Strength Class.  It is designed for people just beginning or those with restrictions or limitations such as arthritis, chronic pain, recent surgery or injuries. Strength training builds bone density, increases strength, tones muscles, increases circulation and improves flexibility. Using yoga balls, bands, tubes, and hand weights you will strengthen the major muscle groups of the legs, arms and core. Modifications will be provided for all exercises. This is a fun way to build strength and improve flexibility.

Gentle Yoga

A form of hatha yoga that is easy to follow, slower paced and accessible to people of all sizes, ages and fitness levels. Learn the fundamental concepts of yoga; deep breathing, focused stretches, stress reduction and relaxation. This is a great class for beginners or those who prefer a gentle class. Yoga mat is needed.  Includes standing, seated, hands and knees and lying down.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga targets your deep connective tissues, like your fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. It’s slower (poses are held 3-5 minutes each) and more meditative, giving you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body. Because you’re holding poses for a longer period of time you must be able to soften the muscles around the area you are stretching. Most yin poses are done reclined or seated. As you hold the poses you learn how to breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts. Props such as blocks, blankets and straps can help to make poses more accessible.

Flexible Strength

Strength training builds bone density, increases strength, tones muscles, increases circulation and improves flexibility. Using yoga balls, bands, tubes, and hand weights you will strengthen the major muscle groups of the legs, arms and core. Class is open to all levels and modifications will be provided. This is a fun way to build strength and improve flexibility. Our Gentle Flexible Strength is recommended for those with physical limitations.

Mindfulness Meditation

Experience of becoming fully present in an intentional way without judgment. Through the practice of mindfulness, we can learn to become more relaxed and accepting of others and ourselves. The physical, emotional and mental benefits of meditation are immense and now well documented.  It is especially helpful for anxiety and depression.  Each class will consist of a brief lecture followed by mindfulness techniques such as body scans, relaxation and seated meditation. No prior experience is required and instruction will be provided for new people.

Testimonial

Camilla

Thankful for the Yoga Place, not only have they helped me through several health issues, but they have taught me techniques for relaxation and self-control during trauma, the unexpected and negative challenges that life brings. Since I began attending, I can get better sleep, live a more positive lifestyle and handle relationships with better quality. Blessed by Suzanne and the others that helped me get off some medications and get on board with positive energy for a better outcome in my life. I have Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Muscular Dystrophy (CMT). However, through the Yoga Place, I have gained a better quality of life and stay healthier despite the challenges life brings. I AM BLESSED.
