JUST ENOUGH YOGA
Tuesdays 9am - 10am | with Elke
Appreciate and treasure the practice of yoga. Never too much. Perfect for first-timers and those who want just enough, not too much. This is a slow-moving practice with the goal of reducing tension in the body to relax the mind. In each class, we will explore a handful of common postures in depth. Elke uses clear language to help students find safe alignment and to notice how this affects the busy mind. Finish with a few restorative postures, guided meditation, and deep relaxation. This experience will be calming, mindful and complete.
This class is good for beginners and great for seasoned students who want to relearn, go deeper, and practice with attention to detail. This is not a vinyasa class; expect longer holds and hands-on assists (optional). Because this class is small each student will receive individual attention. Reiki Energy Healing in savanna if you wish.
Slow Flow and Restorative Yoga
Tuesdays 5:30 - 6:30pm | with Jody
Begins September 26
This class will focus on slowing down and is appropriate for all levels and abilities. The first part of class will focus on slow yoga postures and breathing exercises, followed by some restorative yoga postures. Restorative yoga is a style of yoga that helps the body to rest, heal and restore balance. We will use props such as bolsters, blocks and blankets. These help you hold passive postures longer and allow the muscles and mind to relax deeper.
HANDS-ON LEVEL TWO VINYASA
Wednesdays 9:30am - 10:30am | Elke
Class limit 12 students. Hands-on assists from Elke during class guaranteed. Assists can help to lightly correct small alignment details, and help you feel the subtle nuances of the body. Assists can also guide you deeper into postures and help you understand the postures 'destination'. Small class equals more assists. Flow, learn, challenge, strengthen. A challenging and creative vinyasa practice. Not fast; but thorough and fulfilling. (Hands-on and REIKI optional.)
not currently offered
Using yoga, balls, bands, barre inspired floor work and pilates we will build strength in shoulders, legs and core. This class includes a brief warm-up, 10 minutes of core, 5 -7 minutes (low impact) cardio, exercise bands to build strength, and ends with 20 minutes of yoga postures to stretch the muscles we just used. Safety is always a priority. Customizable to new and seasoned students. Class ends with a lovely heart opener in savasana and REIKI massage (optional).
LEVEL ONE VINAYSA
What is Yoga Flow? What is Vinyasa?
Have you always wanted to try but didnt know where to start?
Have you matured out of the faster paced Power Yoga?
Learning to follow the breath, move mindfully from one yoga posture into the next. Learn the sun salutations, the lingo, the alignment.
This class is slow, detailed, and complete. No need to rush or push. The richness of this class is found in the details, classic postures and simple sequences. You will learn the original structure of the most common flows; using a yoga mix of meditation, breath-work and philosophy.
As a teacher of Vinyasa for over 15 years, Elke’s teachings have slowed and matured. Please join her to learn, or re-learn, or return-to the flexibility and peacefulness that comes through calm flow. Questions and unique needs are encouraged. Props, chairs, hand-on-assists available if you prefer. This class can be modified to accommodate those with injuries, limitations, and questions.
