Class Descriptions

Core

Intensity: Medium - High

Lengthening, strengthening and working the entire body with special attention to our power house -THE CORE!  This class will have you working hard, breathing and sweating.  Core strength is the ultimate necessity to get you into some of the more advanced yoga poses, but more importantly, core strength enhances balance and stability, preventing falls and injuries in athletics and as we age.  It also dictates how well the arms and legs move, all these while promoting a long and healthy spine. 

 

ALL LEVELS are welcome!  This class may include breathwork.

Flow

Intensity: Medium - High

This class is mixed-level and is offered for students who understand how to create the alignments that are instructed in SOW Hatha and who is curious to explore the more challenging side of the practice in a reasonable moving pace, while still being heavily supported. 

This class is best suited for students who are already familiar with core postures in yoga, and have a fair to strong understanding of their body alignment, and are able to hold up longer in different standing poses, and are interested to link up different poses together into a smooth flow. 

We will explore in this class with more playful and complicated standing posture, arm-balancing, backbend and inversion depending on the theme of the month.

Gentle

Intensity: Mild

 

There are days that we may hit our physical sensitivity or limit and would like to take the practice slow and easy, in order to heal the body and bring it back to its normal. 


This class is designed to focus on giving our body and mind with more love, care and mindfulness.  Poses will still strengthen and stretch chosen muscle groups but the pace and posture choice will be gentler, for the purpose of bringing the body back to health. 


This class may include breathwork, chanting, and meditation.

Yoga Strength

Intensity: Medium - High

 

Building muscle is known to improve bone density, boost your metabolism, improve sleep, and increase brain health. This Yoga Strength Class is aimed to build muscles and strength in your arms, legs and core - and it doesn’t involve going to the gym or working with any weights.  If you are lacking of the strength to go upside down in our popular hand balance class or in any inversion, this is the class for you.

The class is primarily a strength - based yoga practice.  It excels at using your body weight to make you stronger and increase muscle tone.  It helps you to build functional strength in a way that multiple joints and muscles are being involved simultaneously that apply to your everyday life.
