We specialize in YogAlign, which focuses on enhancing postural alignment. Nobody has to touch their toes or force their spine to perform extreme yoga poses that have nothing to do with the way our body is designed to move!
Our approach to yoga is one of self-healing -- of involving your whole mind and body. We don’t believe in using force! We practice Ahimsa, non-violence, bringing self-compassion and caring to mindfully and intelligently becoming more fully ourselves.
YogAlign utilizes very scientific-based efficient, functional movement exercises that mimic how the body naturally moves, offering the best antidote to the dysfunctional movement patterns that exist in our technological device based modern culture, while avoiding long-term use injuries associated with many traditional yoga poses.
It’s amazing to see the shifts that can happen in just one of our yoga classes!
We focus on deep rib cage ‘core’ breathing, PNF stretching, and maintaining our four spinal curves, which releases excess tension and increases mobility without stressing the joints. As muscle length and tone becomes more balanced in the front and back of the body, we are brought into more optimal postural alignment and our energy is significantly freed up to become more available for our busy lives!
Most of our yoga classes are practiced in a moderately heated room to promote detoxification through sweating. The heat and humidity create a spa-like atmosphere and make the body very warm, relaxed and therefore naturally more receptive to letting go of tensions.
At the end of a yoga session you will feel more energized, more aligned, stronger, centered, calmer ……with your body more integrated, and moving and breathing with less effort, less tension, and no PAIN!
