YOGA & BARRE CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
Upcoming Workshops At Namaste’
Open Flow yoga classes are open to students of all skill levels ~ The class style will provide a combination of Hatha Yoga including the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation.
Teachers weave together wisdom teachings, poetry and music that can inspire physical, energetic, mental, intuitive, and pure bliss states of consciousness. Open level classes serve students who are looking to evolve to the next level, regardless of what that may be. These classes will vary in range of difficulty, and teachers will offer variations for every student in class. Classes may include arm balances and intermediate inversions, and no matter what, students should expect to push the limits of their flexibility and focus.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Vinyasa, also called flow because of the smooth way the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga today. This energetic fast pace class synchronizes breath with movements. All levels are welcome. Each class with begin with a centering to allow students to drop into the space with a clean slate, and will end with a savasana to allow time to absorb and reap the rewards of the practice. Namaste’

During class we create healing, strength and flexibility of body and mind, but also to reveal a steadiness in thought and actions beyond the poses that can truly transform your daily life ~ Class is open to all levels
Balanced Body & Barre
The Barre is used as a prop to balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range of motion movements. Comprised of a challenging series of movements derived from yoga, pilates, ballet and interval training principles, Barre class utilizes a variety of props including the ballet barre to sculpt long, lean muscle and improve core strength and posture. This intense workout has quickly become the hottest trend in group fitness and we welcome new and current students looking to enhance their technique with this special class.
