Yoga

NEW!

Yoga Classes are open to both members of the Club and non-members. Sign up for an entire session or drop in 1 class at a time (your first class is free!). Suitable for all levels of experience – beginners are most welcome.

Our classes incorporate a variety of approaches, including classical hatha yoga, yin yoga and somatic / restorative yoga.

Classical hatha yoga is a practice that develops flexibility, strength, & balance. Breathing exercises & practice of the yoga postures energize all the major body systems (muscular, skeletal, digestive, respiratory, nervous, endocrine, etc.). Characterized by an emphasis on the breath & an inward focusing of the mind, this practice becomes a form of meditation in motion.

Yin yoga is a slow, deep practice. Yin postures are generally seated or lying down & are held for 2 to 5 minutes. The aim is to give the body’s connective tissues (fascia, tendons, ligaments) a deep stretch – it is a great complement for people who are strong but stiff. This mostly still practice also develops mental focus & deep relaxation.

Somatic / restorative yoga is a gentle but challenging practice intended to restore mobility & stability to the body’s many joints. It is a systematic approach to re-training the brain-body connection by moving the body through its full pain-free range of motion, slowly, mindfully, & with a focus on quality (not quantity) of movement.
