Types of Yoga Classes at YoBe
ALL LEVELS: Emphasis is placed on the fundamentals- accuracy of alignment in the postures, building core strength, flexibility, balance, concentration and breath. This mixed level class will incorporate breath and body awareness to build resiliency and flexibility in both body and mind. Students are expected to know how to follow a sun salutation, and options/modifications will be offered to suit students at all levels.
ESSENTIALS: This well-rounded practice emphasizes the fundamentals of yoga. Students can expect to build strength, flexibility, balance, and compassion, supporting both physical and mental health through mindful, alignment-centered movement and breathwork. Most leave this class feeling more calm and centered within themselves, and more connected to their strength and resiliency. Students generally will receive the most benefits if they are able to follow a sun salutation. While designed for beginners, all are welcome! Please come as you are – options and modifications will be offered to suit students at all levels.
FLOW: Students will learn to refine postures through faster flowing sequences and more challenging poses. These are our most advanced and challenging classes, best for those with a strong foundational practice in yoga.
RENEW & REBUILD: Same as Rest and Renew with additional focus on gentle strengthening postures to maintain and build stability. All Levels.
MORNING PRACTICE: For all levels of practitioners, this hour-long class will focus on waking up awareness and preparing our bodies and minds for a new day. Students will be led through slow, steady movements, breathing and meditation. Each morning practice will begin in “social silence” during which students come in, get settled and tend to their own needs, before beginning a practice led verbally by the instructor. Observing silence in this potent time between dream state and wakefulness can help us stay connected to our deeper intention and move into our yoga practice with clarity. Any information related to the practice (injuries, specific needs or support) is welcomed to be communicated verbally to the instructor prior to the start of class.
