YOGA 101 & Beginning/Gentle Yoga is for those with little or no previous yoga experience and/or anyone who enjoys a slow paced therapeutic yoga class. This class introduces students to fundamental yoga postures. This includes stretching, strengthening, balance and alignment in the postures. Emphasis is on the standing, seated, and relaxation poses. Additionally, this class uses a sequence of yoga postures to strengthen your core muscles. Which will, in time, help lessen back pain and strengthen your abdominal muscles. Meditation is included.
Ashtanga Yoga: Means "eight limbs" in Sanskrit (an ancient classical language of India), It's a fast moving, intense style of Yoga practice and is based on a progressive set sequence of asanas, synchronized with the breath. Ashtanga Yoga can be quite physically demanding as you constantly move from one asana in the sequence to the next, so you'll find that it will improve your stamina as well as your flexibility and strength.
Bikram Yoga: Otherwise known as "Hot Yoga", is practiced in a room heated to 105 degrees, with a humidity of around 40%. Generally a sequence of 26 different poses is practiced during a Bikram Yoga class and the hot temperature helps to loosen muscles. Due to the high temperature most people sweat a lot during the class and this helps to cleanse the body of toxins.
Hatha Yoga: In Sanskrit, "Ha" means "sun" and "tha" means "moon". This type of Yoga is relatively slow paced, gentle type of Yoga and is a good place to start if you are completely new to Yoga and don't know any of the asanas (poses). Like all types of Yoga, Hatha Yoga aims to unite the mind, body, and spirit.
Iyengar Yoga: This type of Yoga is based on teachings by B.K.S Igengar and concentrates on the correct alignment and form of the body. Unlike Ashtanga Yoga, there is an emphasis on holding each pose for a long period of time rather than moving constantly from one pose to the next. Iyengar Yoga uses props such as blocks and straps to help align the body into the different poses.
Power Yoga: This is a western interpretation of Yoga and is based on Ashtanga Yoga. A Power Yoga class may not necessarily stick to the exact sequence of poses like Ashtanga Yoga does, but it does involve practicing a series of poses without stopping and starting.
Thai Yoga: A form of integrative body work that creates balance in the body, mind and spirit, is the perfect form of massage to assist you in meeting your goals. Performed on the floor, with the receiver fully clothed, Thai Yoga Massage accesses parts of the body traditional massage doesn't. As a result, Thai Yoga Massage is excellent for helping issues like sciatica, low back pain, chronic shoulder pain, headaches, back tension and general muscle strains. Furthermore, because of the rhythmic nature of Thai Yoga Massage, it is a form of bodywork that deeply soothes the nervous system, improves circulation, endocrine and respiratory systems while reducing the .muscular tension and spasms, helps expedite metabolism, boost the immune system and helps to balance the body energetically. Inducing a calm, meditative mental state.
Yin Yoga: A practice that takes you ever deeper, with seemingly minimum movement, staying longer in poses (2-6 minutes), holding and safely stretching internal muscle layers as well as connective tissue and ligament fascia reaching the skeletal structure that beautifully glues the body together. This class is for keeping our joints mobile and developing the qualities of stillness and quietude. Yin Yoga is also a perfect complementary practice to the more Yang activities (Power Yoga, running, jogging, biking, etc) and re-establishes both mental and physical equilibrium, enabling you to experience the feeling of letting go and surrender. It is a time to pause and re-connect to what is important to you.
YOGA NIDRA-MEDITATION COURSE: The Mindfullness Based Stress Reduction Program involves learning to develop present moment awareness through a number of mind-body practices to help uncover inner resources for coping with stress, gain insight into the underlying basis of stress reactions, and learn to transform problems into opportunites for growth.~
Vinyasa Yoga: Vinyasa means breath synchronized movement and is another fast paced type of Yoga, with an emphasis on breathing. A practice typically starts with sun salutations and moves on to more intense stretching. Throughout the practice each pose is balanced with a counter pose.
Viniyoga: Was developed by Sri.T. Krishnamacharya(1888-1989).this yoga is softer and more individualized form of yoga. Emphasis is placed on breathing (pranayam) and coordination of breath and movement and is known for therapeutic application of yoga asanas. Viniyoga is usually taught on a one-on-one basis in Viniyoga students are taught that the breath should actually lead the body into and out of each posture. Viniyoga is less concerned with difficult yoga posture than with developing a balanced and appropriate practice for each student. Viniyoga encourages students to practice each asanas according to their individual needs and capabilities. Viniyoga also incorporates meditation, chanting, prayer and ritual depending on the person's emotional and spiritual needs.
If you're just starting out or have never done any Yoga before, I recommend trying a few different types of yoga to find out what you like best.
Remember, there's no rule that says you have to stick to one type of Yoga.
