Yoga for Beginners
Sequences will be broken down a bit slower and are designed to teach the basics of yoga to new students, or those who wish to refine their basic skills. Modifications for injuries will be learned if requested. This class is open to all levels.
Flow and Meditate
This class begins with a light series of asanas (poses) to warm up that gently leads you into a series of restorative asanas and some guided meditation. This class will leave you ready for a good night of sleep and is open to all levels.
All Levels Flow
Sequences will flow through at a moderate pace. Expect the level of this class to vary. Feel free to move at your own pace, or you may follow the instructor’s cues to make the poses more challenging. The instructor will offer modifications to the asanas to support all levels of experience. You can decide how far to take your body. Having done a beginning level class is recommended before coming to an all-levels flow.
Vinyasa Flow 2/3 Sequences will move and flow continuously. Movement will be linked to the breath. Level 2/3 will be a vigorous flow, with strength and breath as the focus. Arm balances and inversions will be taught at the instructor’s discretion. The body will be challenged as poses are held for longer periods of time, and the practice becomes one of fine-tuning within each posture. Yoga experience recommended.
Designed for ages 4-7, this class will lead your child through a fun, creative and mindful sequence. Yoga for kids is said to help develop muscles and upper body strength which is so very important in kids who are learning to write and develop fine and gross motor skills. Breath work and attention skills are strengthened too!
Teen and Tween
This class is designed for teens and tweens from 5th grade through high school. With popular music, partner poses, strength building activities, the instructors at EASY will guide your teens through an invigorating, challenging, mindful, and FUN hour of yoga! They will learn the importance of breath, stress release, stretching, self esteem and body awareness. Participants should bring their own yoga mats and wear comfortable clothing that allows movement.
Power Hour Sequences will flow at a moderate to vigorous pace. Expect to clear your mind and strengthen and tone your body. Power Hour classes will be strength-based. You can expect to get a good workout for your core, arms, legs, and butt! The All Levels options will offer modifications to support all experience levels of yoga.
Lunchtime Flow All Levels Get away from your boss for an hour of ahhhhh.... Grab a friend and get your lunchtime yoga on! Sequences will flow through at a moderate pace. Expect to salute the sun, hold some Warrior poses and planks, and then get a good stretch before heading back to the office (or your kids!). Instructor will offer modifications for most poses to assist all students.
Mindful Flow 1/2 This class will flow from one pose to the next at a moderate pace. Alignment will be emphasized. Students will learn to build a strong foundation in strength, skill, focus and balance in this class. This class is acceptable for beginners as well as more experienced practitioners.
Candlelight Yin/ Restoratives In the Yin practice, passive stretches are held for longer periods of time. The Yin practice is the perfect complement to the more vigorous Vinyasa practice, as well as any other physical activities you may indulge in, such as running, hiking, biking, swimming, or even gardening. Stretches are held in order to open up the connective tissues within the body that become tight from active lifestyles or injury. Restorative yoga will be added to this class, as props are used to help the body fully and completely ease into a state of complete relaxation. Candles will add the perfect touch to this relaxing class. All levels are welcome.
