YOGA CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Recovering from an injury? Dealing with a mobility issue? Just don’t want to get up and down off the floor? This is the class for you. Most of the class takes place seated in a chair. The rest you hold the chair as needed. Blocks and straps are used as well. Very gentle.
Looking to relax? This yoga practice is slow moving. Most of the time is spent in seated or kneeling postures with just a little bit of time up on your feet. This is a window to let go of all of life’s stress.
Level 1-2 Yoga:
Ready to get moving but don’t want to do anything crazy? We’ll be up and down off our mats quite a bit as we dive further into standing and balancing postures. We’ll keep up a moderate pace, but you’ll still be relaxed by the end.
Ready to play? This class is the yogi’s playground. Faster paced than the other practices offered, you’re going to break a sweat in here! We’ll be up and down using our entire mat. Arm balances and inversions will be introduced for those wanting to try something bold.
No grown ups allowed! Just kidding, parents and guardians can stay and play if they want. We’ll use youth friendly themes, often letting the poses help us tell a story.
What exactly is core work? Your core is everything from your shoulders to your hips, all the way around your body. So much more than just your stomach! That’s what this class targets. Shoulders, back, abs, and hips. We’ll train these using functional and stabilizing movements.
Strengthen and Stabilize:
Wanting to get stronger? This class builds total body strength. The format changes from week to week as do the exercises so that we always keep the muscles guessing. One constant set of factors, you’ll get sweaty and have a lot of fun doing so.
How do I make these tired hard-working muscles feel better? Recovery is the key to training. That’s where the results actually take place! Foam rollers and tennis balls are used for self-massage while stretching and other techniques are incorporated to help your muscles bounce back ready for the next session.
The sooner you develop a habit the more likely you are to keep it long term. This is a chance to learn proper technique as well as a love for fitness from a young age.
