Myofascial Hatha Yoga
Myofascial Hatha yoga reconnects you to your whole self. Each class is specially designed for the students that attend that day and open to all levels. Active alignment releases tension in the outer body while building inner strength. Asana, poses, range from vinyasana (ﬂow of poses), standing poses, hip openers, balancing, backbends, seated poses, inversions, and restorative poses. Amy often teaches therapeutic actions or explorations in asana. Pranayama, yogic breathing practice, relaxes and energizes your body and mind as a full deep breath. Every class ends with savasana, relaxation pose, giving you time and space to integrate and rest. Come reconnect to your Whole Self!
Self-massage is taught on a Foam Roller and Super Pinky Ball to relieve muscle and fascial tension while strengthening your core. Yogic awareness and breath reminds you to slow down and listen to your body. Amy always encourages you to listen to your own body as to the depth of pressure and duration of techniques. The combination of a few asanas into class gives you a deeper awareness of the change you can create for yourself. Great for everyone! Runners, walkers, bikers, swimmers, active people, those who stand or sit all day at work, tired & tight legs and back, plantar fasciitis, or those getting into better health.
Yoga Nidra, also known as yogic sleep, is an extended guided relaxation. Similar to savasana, Yoga Nidra is practiced after asana in the last half hour. A half hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to 2 hours of sleep. Amy guides the class using Yoga Nidra by Swami Satyananda Saraswati. All you have to do is listen and relax in savasana pose to rejuvenate your body and mind. Just blissful!
