Strong classes combine invigorating and vitalizing poses which improve strength, flexibility, balance and mind-body awareness. The breath is harnessed as a tool to improve focus during yoga, climbing, and other activities. Poses range from moderate to difficult and modifications are offered to appeal to beginner and advanced yoga practitioners alike. Strong classes may incorporate Vinyasa, Power, Hatha, Iyengar, Forrest Yoga, and other influences.
Relaxed classes focus on releasing tension and lengthening muscles through gentle movement and deep breathing. Students will leave class feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Relaxed classes may incorporate Gentle Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin, Iyengar, Yoga Nidra, Meditation, Restorative, and other influences.
Restorative classes incorporate active relaxation, using props and longer held poses to promote healing. This class is perfect for recovery or those times when you feel weak, stressed, fatigued or want to recuperate your body or mind after climbing. Some teachers may incorporate meditation, pranayama (breathing exercises), or yoga nidra (yogic sleep) as part of a restorative practice.
A consistent meditation practice is a powerful tool to enhance climbing performance and enjoyment. Learn simple techniques to clear your mind, reduce stress and improve focus in this all-levels class. We use a variety of tools including pranayama (breath techniques), somatic awareness, yoga nidra (yogic sleep), mantras, guided visualizations, sound, and more. These weekly sessions are well suited to both beginners and seasoned practitioners alike.
