Without going into a long history lesson, know that yoga's roots are from ancient times, it is a tried and true form of movement. It becomes a part of your life, a practice that you can build on for many years to come . 

We work with breath, meditation, and diffrent genres of yoga to move energy though the physical body.

 

 

What are the different styles of yoga we offer, and how do they differ?

 

Hatha yoga is a standard term that includes most yoga styles that combine breathwork with physical postures. The term is broadly used, but typically involves a gentle introduction to basic yoga postures for beginners

 

Vinyasa-style yoga combines rhythmic breathing with a series of flowing postures for a vigorous mind-body workout. Since it links breath to movement, vinyasa yoga is fluid and quickly paced – perfect for those looking for something athletic and dynamic. 

 

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style that is meant to be meditative and relaxing. It is often interchangeable with “Restorative” yoga as both typically use props to experience yoga in passive poses for several minutes. The focus is to lengthen the connective tissue – the tendons, fascia, and ligaments – in order to improve flexibility and increase circulation in the joints. Expect to hold poses for longer than usual (three to five minutes). 

 

HoopYogini™ is a Hatha based yoga practice that uses the hula hoop as a tool to achieve each pose.  The HoopYogini Spinal Awakening Series is gentle, focusing on moving the spine in all 6 directions. From The Core brings the hoop onto the body, moving it while in dynamic poses. 

 

Fascia Focused Yoga focuses on the fascia in the body, a clingfilm-like substance that wraps around all our muscles and organs, offering support and reducing friction during everyday movement. Using a specific “peanut shaped” inflatable ball (provided by the instructor in class), you will experience deep stretching, loosening the fascia and increasing range of motion.

 

Ashtanga is very similar to vinyasa yoga, in rigor and style as both link breath to movement. Sometimes both terms are used interchangeably, but traditional ashtanga is more structured. It follows a specific sequence of poses in the exact same order, ideal for those looking for something predictable.Expect ashtanga to be hot, sweaty, and physically demanding. 

 

Iyengar is a meticulous style of yoga, giving emphasis to proper form in a yoga pose. An Iyengar class will usually provide an array of yoga props – blocks, straps, bolsters, blankets, etc. – to help each student find proper alignment. It is also usually taught without music and at a slower pace to help students get deeper into the postures and hold them for longer. 

 

Kundalini focuses on repetitive movements synchronized with the breath, along with chanting and meditating. The practice focuses on awakening the energy at the base of the spine in order to draw it up through each of the seven chakras (areas of energy throughout the body).
