DESCRIPTIONS

Hatha Yoga: The general term of all physical yoga exercises.  ALL of the following class are considered hatha yoga.

Vinyasa: A dynamic practice linking breath and movment.  Vyayama (physical discipline), and asana (physical postures) are connected to create meditation in motion. Classically, vyayama also includes gardening, walking and swimming in regularity. Classes move from standing to sitting and include verbal instruction, hands-on adjustments, demonstrations and basic principles of yoga philosophy. This invigorating practice will develop strength, stamina, and flexibility and will often leave the practitioner with an overall sense of well-being.

Level 1: All students welcome! No experience necessary.

Level 1-2: Variations will be given for postures, some experience helpful but not necessary.

Level 2-3: Experience required. Less alignment instruction and challenging postures including inversions and arm balances will be provided.

All Levels: At least 5 introductory level classes are recommended prior to participating.  Options will be provided to suit all student’s needs.

Yoga Basics: Breakdown of the postures to help with alignment and understanding, helpful for  those new to yoga as well as more advanced students who wish to deepen their technique. Standing postures, some flow sequences, balances and floor postures all with hands-on adjustments.

Yin Yoga: Consists of slow opening floor postures designed to bring about maximum flexibility and enhanced health through longer holds and a deeper release. The main focus of yin yoga is in the hips and the back. This yoga is an ideal compliment to all other yoga styles.

Yoga for Surfers: This class is open to all, but specifically designed to emphasize range of motion of the shoulders, back and hips – the body regions most commonly overused and injured by surfers, paddlers and swimmers. This class incorporates breath-work and relaxation techniques along with strength and flexibility poses.  Minimal to zero chaturangas are practiced to ease the over use of the shoulders.  This class can change depending on the season, the students needs, etc.  Example: If you have all been surfing a lot- we will slow down and work on releasing tension.  If the ocean has been flat or stormy for a while- we might pick up the pace!

Family Yoga:  Moms, dads, babies, grandpa, friends, everyone is welcome! We will work on: How to breath different ways, practicing staying still and calm, having fun in challenging places, connecting to your community, family, and inner self.  Please let go of expectations you may have- as the dynamic of this class involves letting go and having fun.  Children play, babies might cry, mom might rest the whole time!

Funky Flow: An all-levels, sweaty vinyasa class that will challenge you physically and ignite your inner glow.  Beware: Lilly plays loud music.

Prana Flow ®  - Energetic Vinyasa is a full-spectrum approach to embodying the flow of yoga created by Shiva Rea. Students of all levels are empowered to experience prana – the universal source of breath, life-energy and conscious intelligence – as the navigating source of yoga practice and vital living. Experience innovating approaches to vinyasa yoga and the state of flow within the rhythm of class. All levels welcome.

Jivamukti Yoga- A Jivamukti Yoga class presents classical yoga teachings as relevant to one’s life on and off the mat, drawn from Jivamukti’s  Focus of the Month, supported by chanting, breath awareness, flowing vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation and meditation. All classes include asanas, meditation and spiritual teachings—in a sequence creatively designed by the teacher. Exuberant, eclectic music plays an integral role: you might practice to a shifting yogic chanting to Madonna, to old school hip hop music and end on a classical note. The possibilities are endless…Ask yourself if you are ready.

Restorative Yoga: Injured? Stiff? Tired? Sore? Restore Relax and Renew yourself! This class is focused on restorative yoga postures, active relaxation, pranayama, and meditation. By supporting the body with props, we alternately stimulate and relax the body to move toward balance. All the postures create specific physiological responses which are beneficial to health and can reduce the effects of stress and dis-ease.

Gentle Flow: Move with your breath through basic sequences.  Increase your awareness of connection of movement & breath.  Close with slow opening floor postures and a short meditation.

Power Flow: This calss will offer a strong flow and introduce some advanced postures in a safe and playful environment.  The physical and mental challenge of the poses will require you to move with your breath at your own body’s pace.

Sampler Yoga: A blend of chi kong, iyengar, vinyasa, and yin yoga.

Shadow Yoga: is a progressive form of hatha yoga blending common preparatory exercises shared between dance, martial arts and nature. Contact Mara for more information: mara@jasmineyoga.com / 808-561-9639

Pregnancy Yoga: Develop your acceptance of the present and calmly prepare for what is to come. Boost your energy with body movements and positions that lengthen the spine to make room for baby while keeping limbs strong and supple. Pelvic floor exercises are designed to increase your awareness for labor and after baby is born. We recommend yoga after your thirteenth week. Ask your doctor if yoga is appropriate for you.
