THE STUDIO:

The studio is located in my home at 53 Fairway Court. It holds 12 people comfortably and has heated floors as well as a fireplace giving the space warmth. See you on your mats soon!

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

Gentle Flow and Stretch: A 60 minute yoga class designed for those either newer to yoga or who want a slow, thoughtful pace that allows them to connect with their inner self through a sequence of gentle movements. It introduces foundational postures, emphasizes key alignment and focuses on breathing techniques. A slower basic flow will be interwoven with various asanas that will help to enhance flexibility and calm the mind.  This well balanced class will strengthen, stretch and rejuvenate your body in a pace that suits your needs. This class is suitable for all levels.

Gentle Happy Hips Deep Stretch: This 60 minute class is designed specifically with your hips in mind using a gentle approach. Following a Hatha style class, the postures are designed to open, align and relax your hips using props and a gentle pace that suits the participants. This slow paced class will focus on the fundamentals of each asana, to move, stretch and relax those tight areas, benefiting not only your hips but your back as well. The class is designed to move and stretch the hips in all 6 directions that they naturally move/stretch using a series of asanas.  Deep stretches, breath and movement will be used to relieve and rejuvenate the hips. This is an all levels class

Vinyasa Flow: Using creative sun salutation sequencing, this 75 minute class moves you from one posture to another seamlessly using your breath. During this practice you will create heat and rejuvenate from the inside out. Various postures including standing, seated, inversions and balancing will be explored coupled with a deep stretch at the end of class. This is an all levels class with a focus on alignment whereby beginners will safely learn the basics while more experienced students can take postures to a deeper level.

Vinaysa POWER Flow: This strong 75 minute powerful flow class energizes, rejuvenates and provides you with a vigorous approach to finding a connection from within by connecting breath to movement. A series of asana flows coupled with sun salutations leaves you refreshed and transformed. During this energetic class you will breathe, balance, strengthen, twist, invert, stretch and go deep within your core. Although there is a strong powerful flow section, the class begins and ends with deep stretches, providing a whole body breath yoga experience. This class is suitable for those familiar with the Vinyasa Flow class and are keen for more.

Happy Hips Deep Stretch: This 60 minute class is designed specifically with your hips in mind. Following a Hatha/Vinyasa style class, the postures are designed to open, align and relax your hips. Runners, athletes or people who stay in one position for long periods of time will especially benefit from this sequencing. A combination of YIN and Yan postures will be used to move, stretch and relax those tight areas, benefiting not only your hips but your back as well. The class is designed to move and stretch the hips in all 6 directions that they naturally move/stretch using a series of asanas stretches, breath and movement will be used to relieve and rejuvenate the hips. This is an all levels class.

Yin/Yan: This 60 minute peaceful quiet class uses long passive holds for deep stretches that go into your connective tissues (joints, bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons) to help improve your overall mobility and range of motion. Using your breath and various props to find the correct alignment coupled with a gentle encouragement to relax your body, the force of gravity will be used to assist you with your stretch. This practice of advanced awareness calms the nervous system and your mind while supporting and preserving joint bone and connective tissue health.  Although this class is mostly YIN based, there will be a few Yan postures used at times to compliment the overall practice.  This class is suitable for all levels.

 CANCELLATION POLICY:

  • During the 5 week sessions, there are no make up classes unless of extreme situations (family emergency) or work related situations discussed in advance
  • Prior to the 5 week session beginning, if you know in advance that you will be away or working I can accommodate the situation as long as it is before the session begins and the class is not FULL. For example, if you are away one week and the session class is not full then we can arrange payment for the remainder classes – not a problem and I am happy to do this.
  • Last minute changes of schedules, children sick and so forth will not have make up classes once the session begins. With over 100 people coming through my doors, it is very difficult to manage all requests and unfair for me to pick and choose what is acceptable.
  • If you do have a make up class that was discussed and agreed to in advance, it must be used during the 5 week session and not put towards a future 5 week session
  • For all drop-in classes, there is a 48 hr cancellation policy. If you cancels within 48hrs of the class, you will be charged for the class.
