Class Details

GENTLE

GENTLE classes are slower with longer periods spent on working into poses; great for those new to yoga, healing from an injury, or looking for a calming practice.  Chair options provided.

Gentle Yoga

 

Focus on releasing tension, connecting with the breath and gaining strength and flexibility. Gentle Yoga is a combination of postures coordinated with the breath, performed at a gentle pace which allows time to be present in each pose. This class provides the opportunity to explore your practice, to find the play between strength and flexibility, stability and ease, and to gain a greater understanding of physical alignment and balance. 

​​

Chair Yoga

Work on strength, flexibility, and mindfulness all while seated in the chair. This class is good for beginners, those who benefit from a seated class, and even professionals who need a quick lunch-time stretch without changing clothes.

Mid-Week Mobility

Feel like the tin-man? This class is a no-frills approach to building joint and muscle flexibility. Ease into your body with active range of motion movements and passive stretches. We might even sneak in some relaxation at the end (shh!).

​​

Yoga for Seniors

Build strength and endurance, increase flexibility, and improve posture and balance. Students are encouraged to use props, modify poses, transition carefully, and find their appropriate balance between ease and effort. Seated chair poses, standing poses, and floor work (alternatives provided as needed).

Yin - Slow Deep Stretch

Yin yoga consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses and breath to ease the body further into the pose. Poses are held for longer periods of time (up to 5 minutes) to target deep tissue relaxation. Postures are frequently supported by props to allow you to release and relax. Long holds are beneficial to promote flexibility. Yin is very meditative and can be a perfect complement to a more active lifestyle.  For an article about all the benefits of Yin Yoga, go HERE.

Restorative Yoga

In a restorative yoga practice, the focus is on releasing tension in the muscles and gently stimulating the organs through long-held poses designed to support and comfort. A variety of props such as blankets, blocks, bolsters, sandbags, and eye pillows may be used to achieve comfort. Restorative yoga allows us to relearn the art of relaxation while developing the skills and abilities to self-soothe by engaging the parasympathetic nervous system response.

ACTIVE

ACTIVE classes combine strengthening movement and yoga fundamentals into gentle flows. Classes end with deeper stretching and relaxation. Appropriate for beginners, but participants should feel comfortable getting on and off floor without difficulty and being on hands and knees.

Active Yoga

Combine strengthening movement, joint mobility work, balance, and yoga fundamentals into gentle flows. Classes end with deeper stretching and relaxation. Options to challenge participants at their individual level are offered. Students should feel comfortable getting on and off the floor. Beginners welcome.

Active Flow

Combine strengthening movement, joint mobility work, balance, and yoga fundamentals into gentle flows.  Active Flow includes strengthening holds and deliberate preparation to work toward more challenging poses/balances.  Students should be familiar with yoga asana. Students should feel comfortable getting on and off the floor.

Kundalini

Kundalini Yoga is a combination of active movement, breath (pranayama), meditation, and chanting. Its goal is not only to make the body stronger and more energetic, but also to increase your level of self-awareness and consciousness.

Mid-Week Mobility

Feel like the tin-man? This class is a no-frills approach to building joint and muscle flexibility. Ease into your body with active range of motion movements and passive stretches. We might even sneak in some relaxation at the end (shh!).

Senior Flow

Designed for mid-life and older adults who may enjoy or benefit from more movement in a flow pattern.   Seated chair poses, then standing poses, followed by deeper stretches on the floor or in a chair (alternatives provided as needed).

Strength Within (26 & 2 Non-Heated Sequence)

26 postures repeated weekly to challenge you from the inside out. The sequence is designed to target every part of the body and keep oxygenated blood flowing steadily. At the same time, great attention is given to breath and focus. After spending time in this practice, you may begin to see more calmness, equanimity, and focus both on and off your mat. 26&2 will certainly be a more challenging style for active beginners and seasoned yogis, alike.

"I have a fairly rigorous walking routine and do some strength training with weights. Tanaya’s classes provide the other fitness components I’m looking for - flexibility, mobility and balance with a hearty helping of strength work and centering/focusing."                                             -Marion D.
