New class styles
The weather is changing, Spring is on its way – slowly, but there has never been a more perfect time to get back to yoga. It’s also the ideal time to change things a little and introduce some new classes to you, as well as looking forward to some special up-coming classes. So why not start to make that change for the better weather and a better healthier you!
Take a look at the new schedule
Most mindful Vinyasa
This is a regular flow class taken at a slower, more mindful pace. Even though we move steadily in this class, the intention is to tune in very closely to your breath and your body’s needs, ultimately creating a therapeutic experience.
This class balances movement and flow with long held deep poses. The first half of the class is typified by sun salutations and standing poses. The second half is spent on the mat in a slow deep yin practice.
This class tends to be a faster paced flow that takes you to your edge, linking breath to movement. It is a great work-out as you will move, stretch, sweat and breathe at your edge. All levels are welcome to this class, as long as you are fired-up for the challenge.
(The Power-hour class is simply all this goodness squeezed into 60 minutes)
New Core HIIT classes
It’s at this time of year that we all start to look forward to the Spring and Summer, and we start to feel the need to really tone things up, non more so than our core. I will be introducing these as Special Classes during the season.
Core HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) classes involve short bursts of concentrated exercise with mini recoveries in between. This type of work-out torches calories, builds metabolic fire and stamina. These classes will focus mostly on core (abs, back and obliques) and much of the movement will be yoga inspired, but not restricted to only yoga. This is an intense core workout that is intended to make you sweat, but is also tempered with the yoga mindset.
These ‘mini’ classes will be scheduled to precede a yoga class for those who would like a convenient way to add some core focus and calorie-burn to their work out. These classes will be a great addition to any yoga class but works equally as well as its own stand-alone class too.
You are more than welcome to come to just the core class, just the yoga class, (as usual) or both.
New Core HIIT Plus class
Just as with the regular Core HIIT class, the focus here will be around the abs, torching calories and building metabolic fire and stamina. But the ‘Plus’ classes will be designed with a 15 minute yoga component right in the middle of the core class, allowing you to engage with the yoga mindset, maintain that stamina and really enhance the experience of the whole class.
As with all my Special Classes please be sure to check back regularly for dates, times and advanced sign-ups.
