No matter your experience level — you are welcome.
DEFINITION OF YOGA - The word "yoga" comes from the Sanskrit root yuj. which means "to join" or "to yoke."
These classes offer the fundamentals of vinyasa yoga, including sun salutations, standing poses, balancing poses and core strengthening. Emphasis placed on moving with the breath and into and out of postures safely and with correct alignment. Beginners and students looking to work on basics are welcome. Classes are taught by Tina Graham, who uses meditative opportunities throughout the class. Essential oils and reiki healing energy are used in the relaxation pose at the end of class.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced, deep practice that involves spending at least a few minutes in each pose. Often props are used to help. This style of yoga can be very calming for some. However, for some people, staying in a pose for so long can still be deceptively challenging. As Yin doesn’t involve the same concentration levels as faster styles of yoga, it can leave the mind open to distraction. Many people find Yin helps cultivate inner peace and can especially help before bedtime to aid a good night’s sleep.
Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation, a method of Pratyahara (withdrawal of senses) that allows you to scan the body and tap into a state of relaxed consciousness as the mind settles in a place between wakefulness and sleep.

Stay in the yoga room for the final relaxation pose (savasana) to warm down and allow your breathing and heart rate to return to normal. This helps to integrate all the great work you have completed in the last 60, 75 or 90 mins. Don’t worry, the teacher will let you know when class is officially over.
