YIN YOGA

Yin Yoga consists of a series of simple postures which dig deep into connective tissue and fascia layer. This class is gentle and suited for all levels and is very beneficial for individuals with decreased range of motion or mobility. The slower pace is a nice complement to other forms of exercise as well as an excellent form of stress relief – helping rid the body of tension. Props may be used to assist in deeper stretches and stress reduction. This slow paced class encourages the body to relax deeply, loosening the muscles and de-stressing the mind while releasing chronic tension held in the body. Set to soft relaxing music, dim lighting and inspirational guidance.

LYT YOGA

The LYT Method of Functional Yoga & Movement, developed my Lara Heimann, PT, is grounded in the modern teachings of physical therapy with a focus on neurodevelopmental movement, maintaining a neutral spine and pelvis, integration, strength, stability, and mobility. This smart approach to yoga and movement re-maps poor posture habits and patterns of of compensation. The LYT Method is safe and sustainable, effective, and efficient. You will learn the importance of posture, alignment, and good movement to optimize performance, decrease pain and discomfort, increase energy, and feel amazing. Experience the Difference! 

GENTLE YOGA

Gentle Yoga is a slow and mindful practice that focuses on stretching all areas of the body while releasing tension and stress in a non-heated room. Through gentle poses, proper alignment and breath awareness you will get your blood flowing, improving circulation and relief of muscular tension.
