Anyone can practice yoga; all that is required is to step on the mat and open the mind.
Class styles include:
* Hatha Yoga
This is a slower and more traditional approach. Postures are sustained while the focus remains on alignment and breath. This is a great start for beginners and yet still challenging for veteran yogins who want to improve postural alignment.
* Power Yoga
It is fantastic for building strength, focus and balance. With more time spent on the standing series, students will be challenged both physically and mentally as the core gets a serious workout with Power Yoga.
* Vinyasa Flow
For any level, Vinyasa flow classes are dynamic and movement oriented. It includes dance from one Asana to another and move with the breath.
This is a yoga and Pilates fusion that is great for increasing core strength and toning glutes and thighs. Classes usually start with a standing series of yoga postures and continue with Pilates style floor work.
* Restorative Yoga
It is a gentle practice perfect for anyone yearning to slow down and relax. Restorative yoga is also highly beneficial for those recovering from injury or suffering from chronic pain. The majority of the practice is done in a supine position with the body supported by props such as blocks, bolsters and blankets.
