Tegan instructs the following:
Vinyasa means "flow" or merging movement with the breath. These classes focus on breathing and seek to move students through a sequence of postures as the breath flows in and out. Using this breath, heat or "tapas" warms the body allowing the practitioner to move deeper into postures and eventually deeper into their own personal practice. Vinyasa yoga increases strength, stamina and flexibility while calming and steadying the mind. This class style is inherently diverse and sequencing will vary with each instructor's personal flavor. Open level.
Aerial Yoga is the practice that fuses together the two art forms of yoga and aerial dance. All classes utilize an aerial hammock that is made from a soft fabric strong enough to support our body weight (and then some!). This hammock is a wonderful tool to teach students how to align their bodies within a variety of yoga postures as well as experiencing inversions without any compression on the spine! This class is for those who are beginners to aerial yoga. 1 year of yoga experience is still necessary to attend. Only 4 available spots in class. Class reservations may be cancelled no later than 24 hours in advance.
This class will teach the very basics of the yoga postures. Learn how to find a sustainable yoga practice for your body. Enjoy the benefits of meditation and final relaxation.
