2021 Summer Classes
All classes are theme based and set to music. All classes are 1 hour. The approach is functional yoga. Aesthetic performance is secondary to safety and benefit. Vinyasa is designed for students with some experience. If you are brand new to yoga, consider a private session to learn your foundation. Your body and practice is beautifully unique. It’s your path. Enjoy your practice. The schedule is in place for the warm months.
Outdoor Vinyasa Flow : Monday, Wednesday and Friday 9:00AM, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday 10:30AM, Tuesday and Thursday 4:00PM. WEATHER PERMITTING. If class moves inside, the first 4 sign ups will receive the indoor option. Outdoor limit is 6 people. Indoor limit is 4 people.
This tradition is a series of sequenced poses and stretches set to music and much like the sensation of dance. As you move with your breath, you will flow from warm up to a crescendo and settle into deep stretching and rest.
Weighted Vinyasa Sculpt Outdoors: This class can be scheduled as a private group. Text me 972-795-1317
This class is high energy using hand weights through poses for strength building. Strength, cardio, vinyasa and abs included in the class.
Indoor Yin : Tuesday evening 7:00PM and Friday morning 10:30AM
Based on Master teachers Bernie Clark (my teacher) and Paul Grilley this practice targets your joints and connective tissue (fascia, ligaments and tendons) with minimal muscle engagement. Poses are held for time (3-5 minutes each) allowing a slow and effective expansion that improves range of motion, flexibility and relaxation. This practice is not considered a restorative practice.
Indoor Restorative : Sunday afternoon 4:00PM
Based on the work of master teacher, Judith Lasater (my teacher), this delicious class is inactive and sequenced with no more than 4 poses. You will rest in prop-supported positions for 10-25 minutes each, depending on the format. These poses are designed to induce the resting nervous system and take you out of perpetual “fight or flight”. The final pose is savasana or a guided yoga nidra. This class is ideal for meditation, recovery, deep relaxation and mind body connection.
Indoor Vinyasa / Yin: Monday and Wednesday 10:30AM
A blend of vinyasa yoga, yin yoga and occasional foam rolling, resistance bands or deep muscle stretch. This could potentially be held outside with class approval and good weather.
Indoor Yin / Rest: Thursday evening 7:00PM
A blend of 30 minutes yin and 30 minutes of 1-2 restorative poses.
