A dynamic and creative sequencing of poses linked together by breath. Our vinyasa flow practices range in speed and intensity, but you can be sure you will feel the energy flowing through your body as you settle into your final savasana.
Rocket is a fast-paced style of yoga that was sequenced by Larry Schultz in San Francisco. The sequences are based on the primary, intermediate and advanced series of ashtanga yoga, but structured in a way that allows the practitioner to adapt the class to their chosen level. Optional advanced poses are sprinkled throughout the class to challenge those who want it, but the rocket practice is all about connecting with your breath and choosing your own pace, so can be adaptable for all levels.
In today's yang/fast-paced world, the need becomes greater to slow down and find that yin balance. In this class, we take a little bit longer to breathe and settle into each floor pose, generally spending 3 to 5 minutes in each one. This allows us to move into our parasympathetic nervous system, slow down the heart rate, and get deeper into our connective tissue.
This class is all about slowing down your body and mind and letting go of control. Bolsters, blocks and blankets assist you into passive, relaxing stretches with holds up to ten minutes. Soothing ambient music, relaxing aromatherapy, and optional hands-on adjustments are all used to help you reach full relaxation.
Osteopathic Manual Therapy
Osteopathy is a form of science based therapy that is drug-free, non-invasive manual manipulation guided by the belief in the body's ability to self-heal and self-regulate. This is why manual osteopathic practitioners do not see themselves as healers, but instead facilitators to health. Osteopathy acts as a complementary therapy alongside conventional medicine.
Thai yoga massage (thai massage) is a combination of yoga and massage therapy. It comes from South East Asia and is used as a method to relieve stress and tension from your mind and body. It is a beautiful exchange of energy as the practitioner moves you through gentle stretches otherwise known as passive, assisted yoga. It helps align the body physiologically and gently massages away tension. It is practiced fully clothed on the floor on a thai massage mat.
