Iyengar Yoga is a form of Hatha Yoga created by the late B.K.S. Iyengar. This method of yoga helps develop greater self-awareness by encouraging students to practice with precision and integrate the subtleties of body, breath, and mind into their postures. Iyengar Yoga is rigorous and offers transformational results. We are the only student in the greater Indianapolis area with a yoga rope wall and Certified Iyengar Yoga Teachers.
Students of all ages, body types, and abilities can readily adapt to Iyengar Yoga. The use of props allows Iyengar Yoga to be accessible to all people at all stages of life and experience. However, this particular class is ideal for those with some prior yoga experience and ability to get up and down from the floor with ease.
VINYASA / FLOW YOGA
Feeling stressed out? Burn off that the stress with a slow flowing vinyasa-style class targeted for everyone from beginners to long-time practitioners who enjoy a slower flow. You will have ample time to arise into each pose, abide there and dissolve into another pose through fluid movement. Finally, unwind as you settle into seated poses and a restorative savasana as the teacher guides you deeper into relaxation.
GENTLE / HATHA YOGA
This class uses traditional yoga techniques to help students move towards optimum overall well-being. The teachers incorporates the use of a variety of verbal cues, gentle movements that are easier on the joints and personalized instruction to make all poses accessible to every level of student. Open to all levels and beginners are welcome.
Restorative Yoga is a highly effective form of “active relaxation” that is suitable for everyone. Also known as the art of relaxation, restorative yoga postures melt away physical and mental tension and deeply rest the mind and body with the support of blankets, bolsters and other props. Restorative poses also assist the body’s processes of healing injuries and recovering from illness by releasing tension that would otherwise impede recovery. Open to all levels and beginners are welcome.
This class focuses on stillness and deepening into a pose to allow the muscles to relax and the soft tissues to open. Most poses are seated and held between 3 to 5 minutes to allow the body to soften. Yin Yoga is rooted in the Taoist belief that energy (aka "chi") runs through the various meridians housed in our connective tissues and the practice helps release any blockages to allow the energy to flow freely. Props are sometimes used to support the body, allowing gentle relaxation with gravity, rather than against it. Pranayama and yoga nidra/meditation is incorporated to promote deep relaxation. Open to all levels and beginners are welcome.
