Lifteaston Studio Yoga Classes

Vinyasa Flow: Vinyasa yoga, is movement synchronized to the breath. The name encompasses  a broad range of yoga classes. The style is sometimes also called flow yoga, because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance. The breath becomes an important component because the teacher will instruct you to move from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale. Mixed-Level follows the foundation of vinyasa practice, with emphasis on safe alignment and breath to help us flow from posture to posture. Mixed level classes are accessible for students new to yoga or those coming back from injuries, as well as students with steady yoga practices who want to work towards the edge of their balance, endurance, strength, and flexibility. (Open to all levels.)


Yoga Basics

When you’re brand new to yoga, it can feel intimidating and be difficult to know exactly where and how to get started.

This class will build a strong foundation for your yoga practice. It is appropriate for those who are new to yoga as well as experienced yogis who enjoy a strength building, alignment focused class. We will learn basic postures and alignment, as well as how to use props to keep your body safe. We will also learn basic breathing techniques and how to transition your "yoga" off the mat and into your everyday life!


HATHA YOGA

Hatha is a general category that includes most yoga styles. It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation.Hatha yoga is the practice of uniting solar and lunar energies within the body. Hatha means “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha). This class will focus on alignment through traditional asana and pranayama as a means to yoke the mind and body together. Open to all levels.

YOGA NIDRA

You will learn proper breathing and also practice breathing techniques in this class. Simple yoga movements are introduced as well as concepts of mindfulness concepts. Pranayama is one of the five parts of yoga.



iREST YOGA NIDRA

A yoga of self inquiry exploring our true nature. Finding deep relaxation as you find the endless connection to spaciousness and equanimity and peace of mind.

Described as “dynamic sleep,” the Yoga Nidra practice allows the body to deeply relax while the mind stays inwardly alert. ... Yoga Nidra guides practitioners into the “hypnagogic state”—the threshold between alpha and theta waves—the knife's edge where the body “sleeps” while the mind is lucid. Both meditation and yoga nidra help activate the relaxation response and improve the functioning of your nervous system and endocrine system, which affects your hormones. Both meditation and yoga nidra help cells regenerate and repair, and both help decrease anxiety and improve your mood.


RESTORATIVE YOGA

A form of yoga that seeks to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of props. The use of props makes it easier for you to maintain balance while you are stimulating and relaxing your body.
