HATHA (60 Min) $7:
This centuries old style of yoga encompasses the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation. At Balanced Body Therapeutics we recommend this relatively gentle and slow yoga if you are a beginner or a student who prefers a more relaxed style where they hold poses longer.
VINYASA (60 Min) $7:
Like hatha, VINYASA is a general term that describes many different styles of yoga. It essentially means movement synchronized with breath and is a vigorous style based on a rapid flow through sun salutations. We recommend this class for our intermediate students or if you like to move fast paced.
ASHTANGA (60 Min) $7:
Ashtanga is a system of yoga that is nonstop, while being encouraged to breathe as you move from pose to pose. Each series is a set sequence of asanas, always in the same order. It is typically fast-paced, vigorous and physically challenging.
KUNDALINI (60 Min) $7:
Kundalini incorporates repeated movements or exercises, dynamic breathing techniques, chanting, meditation and mantras. Each specific kundalini exercise, referred to as a kriya, is a movement that is often repeated and is synchronized with the breath. The practice is designed to awaken the energy at the base of the spine in order to draw it upward through each of the seven chakras. This form of yoga looks and feels quite different than any other, due to its focus on repetitive, enhanced breathing and the movement of energy through the body.
RESTORATIVE (60 Min) $7:
Restorative is a gentle, relaxing, passive style that allows students to relax and release the body into a gentle stretch that is held for as long as 10 minutes. This style makes use of a wide range of props, including bolsters, blocks, straps and blankets. The intention is to provide support within each pose, making it easier to completely leg go.
YIN (60 Min) $7:
On the 3rd Tuesday of every month, we offer a candlelit yin yoga during evening hours. Yin yoga is a slow-paced style in which poses are held for five minutes or longer. Even though it is passive, yin yoga can be quite challenging due to the long holds, particularly if your body is not used to it. The purpose is to apply moderate stress to the connective tissue - the tendons, fascia and ligaments - with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.
