YOGA THERAPY

Movement Medicine - 

A healthy mind is a healthy body. Movement boosts dopamine production in the body, natural opiates that make us feel good. Moving your body releases stuck energy and opens channels in the body for healing. 

 

 We offer a variety of therapeutic movement classes that help heal the body. Our offerings also include private classes that can be catered and modified to more specific modalities including Hatha, Yin, Vinyasa etc.

 

Here we synch our yoga practice with beautiful melodies and sounds of calming music, and live drumming that help students connect to the breath.

Our group classes are suitable for all levels.  

Hope you join us on the mat!

You are a body in motion, even when you are silent and still.

THAI-RESTORATIVE

Your teacher takes you through a journey (or release) and builds on the class by adding inspiring words and soothing music.  Restorative class is beneficial to those who have built up stress and anxiety, have chronic tension in the body, have been in an accident, or to help the body heal an injury. Our teacher introduces a variety of Thai massage techniques to deepen your practice. It is important to maintain a healthy balance of our nervous system that always seem to be on overload. The connections of the central nervous system are calmed, allowing for better sleep,  clearer thoughts, and both; better energy and quality of life.

YOGA NIDRA & SOUND BATH

The practice of Yoga Nidra is an active meditation. Unlike mindfulness meditation that encourages you to transcend the body, Yoga Nidra brings awareness to the body - allowing you to feel deeper into the sensations. The practice is a journey of feelings and exploring all 5 senses while being still and awake in your meditation.

We add sound to deepen the sensation of relaxation. The crystal bowls are tuned to the exact Megahertz of the 7 Chakras and bring healing and therapeutic balance to them.

This practice allows you to feel change in the body as they arrive without disturbing the feeling of inner peace.

THAI YOGA (STRETCHED & MOBILIZE)

This practice stems from the Thai system (Rasidaton) and is a practice originally created for Thai Yoga practitioners to keep their body healthy and mobile. Thai Yoga is a gentle practice that works on the meridian energetic lines of the body as well as fascia patterns. The fascia protects and compartmentalizes each muscle and can become restricted with dehydration, lack of movement, inflammationand repetitive strain. This practice allow for freedom in movement and deep relaxation.
