PURUSHA PILATES

Purusha Pilates is an essential part of any complete fitness, athletic and yoga program. Practiced and highly regarded by elite athletes, dancers and performers - regular attendance will build a foundation of good form for all movement that follows. Ample time is given in each class to become a master of the elusive classic yoga exercises called 'bandhas' or (power locks). These bandhas strengthen the pelvic floor, abdominals, and obliques while also lengthening the spine, lifting the heart, releasing tension in the neck and shoulders and improving cardio/ pulmonary function through 'powerhouse' breathing. This class provides an intelligent foundation for beginners, a total body tune-up for maintenance and a challenge for advanced enthusiasts. Options are given for all levels of ability. Appropriate as post-rehabilitation for shoulders, neck and spine imbalances and accommodating for all.

Beginners are encouraged!

RESTORATIVE YOGA

Enjoy a gentle class that will guide you through hatha asanas and breathing, raja 8 limb practices and restorative techniques to rest the body and mind. In this class, you will receive individualized instruction and personalized care to accommodate your specific needs, desires, and concerns.

You will be guided into restorative poses that are supported and modified to meet your individual needs with bolsters, blankets, pillows and other props. Each posture has a specific function to heal, mend, and restore balance to a particular part of the structural body while also creating a pathway to the parasympathetic nervous system to deeply relax and heal the mind, energy and overall connection to homeostasis and well-being.

These classes often include one or more of the following: Guided healing touch, themes based on yogic philosophy, mindfulness and healthy lifestyle, as well as sound healing, sound baths, yoga nidra, chanting and classic breathing practices that calm the nervous system and activate the vagus nerve and relaxation response.

All ages, levels of experience and ability are welcome.
