ASHTANGA VINYASA YOGA: MODIFIED PRIMARY SERIES
Ashtanga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois . This method of yoga involves synchronizing the pranayama (breath control) with a progressive series of asanas (postures) which create a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind. This class is bilingually instructed.
Hatha Yoga basically means “sun and moon” in Sanskrit, which translates into a focus on the mind and body. Balance. This class is designed to focus on the breath, relaxing and staying in the present moment. It is a Level I class, which means it is suitable for all levels, including beginners. There are variations to each asana (pose) in order to bring challenge or relaxation. The class is not competitive, allowing you to relax, move the body, and gain a clear mind. 60 minutes.

In restorative yoga, props are used for support the body so that you can hold poses for longer, allowing you to open your body through passive stretching. The postures are usually adapted from supine or seated yoga poses with the addition of blocks, bolsters, and blankets to eliminate unnecessary straining. For instance, a seated forward bend (paschimottanasana) can be done with a bolster or several folded blankets on top of the legs so that your forward bend is fully supported with the entire torso resting on your props. Legs up the wall (viparita karani) is a classic restorative, with the wall used as a prop to support the legs.

This hour and a half class will be given bilingually Spanish/English and open to all levels.
