T'ai Chi Chih
 

T'ai Chi Chih is a Western discipline originated by Justin Stone in 1974.  Justin was a T'ai Chi Chuan teacher and studied many years in the Orient.  T'ai Chi Chih was the result of his knowledge, meditation, and looking for a discipline appropriate for the Western culture.  T'ai Chi Chih is 19 movements and 1 pose which activates, circulates and balances the intrinsic energies that flow within our body. The practice is easy to do and requires very little space or special equipment.

Anyone can participate regardless of age, physical condition or athletic ability.  It can even be done seated. T'ai Chi Chih practitioners may experience an upgraded flow of energy, improved balance, gentle relaxation, better sleep and refined concentration and focus.

Numerous medical benefits of the practice of T'ai Chi Chih are documented here:

Aerial Yoga
 

In the Intro to Aerial Yoga Series, you will stretch, swing, invert, build strength, learn about yourself and your body while you are supported or suspended in an aerial yoga hammock. The hammocks are safety-rated to hold up to 2000 lbs, ensuring that all students can practice safely. The beauty of aerial yoga is that you don’t need any previous experience with acrobatics, aerial dance, or even yoga.

During conditioning moves, your body is partially supported by the hammock to challenge muscles in a way unique to aerial yoga. You’ll work your core and strengthen your back using both the hammock and your own body weight to provide resistance. When your weight is shared with the hammock, you will be able to move through your full range of motion. You may find that your new core strength will change your day-to-day functioning.

Hatha
 

Hatha Yoga is the most widely practiced form of yoga in the world. Hatha Yoga uses Classic postures (asana) and conscious breathing (Pranayama) in combination with mental focus to develop awareness, strength and flexibility, and relaxation. These skills are practiced in fundamental poses both seated and standing. Through proper alignment and mindful actions of the body, Hatha Yoga brings balance, strength, and a sense of well being to the practitioner. All Hatha Yoga classes end with Savasana (relaxation). The class is appropriate for all levels.

Gentle Hatha
 

Gentle Yoga is a form of Hatha Yoga that is a gentler, slower-paced practice that makes it more accessible to people of all sizes, ages, and fitness levels. Gentle Hatha is a great place to start for those who just want to take it slower. The focus is on warming up the body, connecting with the breath and beginning to work the joints and glands. It creates an atmosphere of safety and comfort that fosters self-acceptance. This is a wonderful beginning class. Appropriate for all levels

Hatha Flow

Hatha Flow links the postures practiced in a regular Hatha class into a sequence of movements that flow with the breath in a more vigorous series. Hatha Flow involves moving from one posture to another, and creates a strong cardiovascular workout. Variations on the Sun Salutation are often used as a warm-up, followed by a standing sequence, balancing poses, and then seated poses. Each class is different providing the student with a unique experience each time they approach their practice. This class is recommended for the student who has practiced Hatha Yoga and is interested in exploring a movement-oriented class. This is a multi-level class. Instructions for modifications are given.

Vinyasa Flow
 

Vinyasa - The word Vinyasa translates as, to place in a special way. The common understanding of Vinyasa is a flowing sequence of specific asana coordinated with the movement of breath. Vinyasa requires that we cultivate an awareness that links each action to the next, one breath at a time. In asana a posture is an experience that we arrive at not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally as well. These classes use a vigorous flow of postures designed to warm the body, and build stamina, strength and flexibility. Students should expect to move continuously throughout the entire class. Each class is creatively constructed; there is no single rulebook, philosophy or sequence and the classes are unique from class to class, guaranteeing a different experience each time you step on to your mat. Students are encouraged to move at their own pace. A basic knowledge of Hatha Yoga poses and alignment is encouraged, before attending a Vinyasa class. This is taught as a multi- level class

Power Vinyasa
 

This class takes the previous format, of Vinyasa Flow, into a more vigorous, fitness-based approach to the vinyasa- style of yoga to create an increase in stamina, strength and flexibility. It is recommended you have a strong practice and experience in Vinyasa style classes to attend this class.

Slow Flow Vinyasa
 

This Slow Flow Vinyasa class explores the foundations of body, mind, and breath. Integrating the whole body in a progressive yet accessible series of postures to stretch and strengthen as well as migrate towards balance and mindfulness. All levels welcome, Slow Flow is a great way to explore foundation poses and work toward flexibility while cultivating a sense of graceful peace and well-being. Sequences focus on classic postures integrated with a mix of modified variations, using the support of props and assists as needed. Practice includes traditional sun salutations followed by standing, seated, spinal twists, hip and hamstring openers, balance and core strengtheners with special emphasis on the breath. In this class the postures are held slightly shorter than in a restorative class but slightly longer than a traditional Vinyasa Flow class. Ease into your Sunday gently with a fun and fluid practice to awaken your body and your spirit!

Sunrise Yoga

A balanced practice to leave you energized for your day! We will begin with pranayama to focus and awaken the mind, moving gently to allow the body to wake up and then we will work in to stronger Hatha postures for grounding and strengthening. In between postures we will practice fluid and dynamic movements to elevate the heart rate and raise our energy level. No sunrise class would be complete without sun salutations so expect some of those as well! Leave class feeling focused energized and ready for you day.

This class is 60 minutes and is suitable for all levels from beginners to experienced yogis.

Whether new to yoga or an accomplished yogi, everyone is invited to this class!

Gentle/Chair Yoga

Not everyone can get up and down off the floor, making standard yoga classes difficult for them.  With the help of a chair to provide additional support and stability, participants are able to enjoy the potential benefits of yoga practice, including improved range of motion and flexibility, increased mobility and circulation, strengthened muscles and joints, better breathing habits and sleep, as well as reduced stress regardless of potential limitations. This style of yoga is recommended for those with hypertension, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, vertigo, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, osteopenia, chronic pain, injury recovery, fibromyalgia, cancer, amputees, etc. and open to those that use walkers, canes, and wheelchairs, as well as those of able body that aren’t sure they are flexible enough for other yoga classes. Most postures will be done from a seated position, though some standing and prone positions may be included as participants are able. During each session, chairs and props will be used to keep everyone safe, in consideration of whatever movement is appropriate for their body.

Yoga for Athletes

This is a class specifically designed for runners, cyclists and all who would enjoy a more vigorous experience. The class focus will be on breathing, opening the hips and strengthening the upper body. This class is appropriate for all levels of yogi but come prepared for a challenge.

Kundalini

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is often called the Yoga of Awareness. It is a dynamic style of yoga designed to take one on an exploration of consciousness. Within each class, we use mantra (sound vibration), asana (poses), pranayama (breath), meditation, and relaxation in order to bring changes in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies. Kundalini Yoga works to strengthen the nervous and glandular systems, enhances intuition, and strengthens the energy field of the practioner. You are invited to journey within and tune in to your truth.

Basic Hatha and Mindfulness Practice

Bring mindful awareness to the present moment through the practice of yoga asana and mindfulness-based meditation practices. Tara fuses two complimentary practices - yoga and mindfulness meditation - to bring greater awareness to your moment-to-moment life and a sense of peace and joy in the fullness of life. Mindfulness meditation is a central practice of Buddhism and when considered from a yogic perspective, it is the 6th limb of Ashtanga Yoga - dharana. Join a class focused strongly on mindful presence in the moment through the use of verbal cues, breath-count practice, and mindful body scan...all while enjoying many of the yoga asana you love!
