OUR REGURLARLY SCHEDULED CLASSES
Ana Forrest, creator of Forrest Yoga, has a unique and powerful philosophy and approach toward yoga. The purpose is to purify the body, release emotional pain, and get strong and centered so that healing can take place. By using deep breathing, long holds in each posture, and vigorous sequences, you will flush out toxins and rejuvenate every cell in your body.
Vinyasa is a style of yoga that focuses on linking breath with movement and flowing from one posture to the next. This style of yoga flows between postures with few breaks, building heat in the body. You will learn to perform a series of strengthening and balancing postures for the entire body, and have the opportunity to push yourself at your own level. Because of its continuity and variety, Vinyasa yoga raises performance, flexibility, balance and focus.
ROOT INTEGRATIVE VINYASA
Root Integrative Vinyasa uses intelligent sequencing and unique transitions to create a challenging class that brings awareness to your core, while creating a deeper connection with yourself. The playfulness that the teacher brings keeps the class lighthearted, but anatomical brilliance holds the integrity of alignment in a way that integrates the entire body into every movement. In these classes you can expect to find rigorous vinyasa, long holds and the encouragement to stay present with your mind and your body.
Mighty Root is a core-focused class that bridges the gap between fitness and yoga. By using light medicine balls, Mighty Root offers a unique alternative to a traditional yoga class. This class will work you through movements to develop a stable foundation of strength, flexibility and balance.
Anusara Yoga literally means, “stepping in to the flow of grace.” By opening up to the possibility that one can do and be anything, one can experience the beauty of the world – one just needs to step in to the flow! Based on yogic alignment principles, the practice offers structural awareness and heart-centered movement.
FLOW AND RESTORE
Flow and Restore is a relaxing vinyasa yoga class designed to stretch, strengthen and tone the body while bringing balance to the central nervous system. The vinyasa portion of the class will connect breath with movement, allowing the body to release tension and stress. The class finishes with a long, sweet restorative sequence, offering even deeper levels of relaxation so you will emerge feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
