Types of Yoga

Linda teaches many types of yoga including the following:

 

Hatha

When people think of yoga, most people think of Hatha yoga. This is one of the most common types of yoga where students are guided into numerous individual asanas (poses). Once the pose is established, the student then holds and breathes into the shape. There are hundreds of yoga poses, all holding different benefits within them. Hatha yoga is suitable for all levels of students, young to old, new to advanced. A private Hatha yoga practice is designed to expand and enhance your physical shape so that you can thrive in your own body. More importantly, once you feel good physically, you will then start to feel good mentally. Hatha yoga is the foundation of meditation and learning to calm the mind.

Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa Flow uses dynamic movements to create a sequence that flows smoothly and evenly. Many people enjoy this type of yoga because it allows us to build heat, sweat, purify, and deeply connect to the breath. Each movement is guided by an inhale or exhale and eventually the practice starts to feel like a moving meditation.

Yin

This type of yoga incorporates deeper, longer stretches than a typical yoga class. It’s kind of like having a deep tissue massage. Poses are held for 3-5 minutes in order to facilitate a deeper release. Most poses in the Yin practice are relaxing, although some require a fair amount of muscle control. By the end of a yin practice, you will feel longer, more open, and inevitably more relaxed.

Restorative

When you just need to soften and do nothing, this is the yoga for you. Restorative yoga uses props (straps, chairs, blocks, bolsters, etc.) to facilitate a gentle release of tension in the muscle fibers. It is one of the most relaxing forms of yoga and helps to cultivate santosha, meaning contentment.

……………………………………………..

Prenatal

Pregnancy is one of the most sacred times that a woman will ever have in her whole life. If you are expecting or plan to in the future, please give yourself the gift of prenatal yoga. Prenatal yoga is designed to safely keep the pregnant mama active and strong while also incorporating techniques that support natural labor.

……………………………………………..

Postnatal

After baby comes, you may feel like you have lost your physical body as well as a connection to yourself. Come give yourself some much needed “me time” through postnatal yoga where you will not only start to tighten back muscularly all the things that have changed in your body, but you will also be able to breathe easier and give yourself a break from the constant, tiring, but oh-so-worth-it time spent with your precious baby.

Gentle/Therapeutics

When your body has limitations, it doesn’t mean you can’t practice yoga. It means you should practice even more! Gentle yoga and Therapeutics is designed to ease discomfort for all types of disease, injuries, and chronic conditions.

Yoga for Athletes

No matter what the sport, Athletes are prone to constant tightness and fatigue in the certain muscles and joints that are used to facilitate their game. Through a specialized yoga program, Yoga for Athletes will target the specific anatomy for your sport that needs attention. Also, if you have suffered from a specific injury such as tennis elbow or runner’s knee, you can continue to practice yoga in a modified way and use specific poses to promote healing.

Yoga Tune-up Therapy Balls

Yoga Tune-Up is a brand of yoga that incorporates comprehensive structural anatomy training. Using special formulated massage balls, myofascial release is incorporated into the yoga sequence to massage the deeper tissues that cause pain or limit flexibility. The result is a deeper release of the muscle fibers, allowing one to release deep-seeded layers of tension and safely go deeper into the yoga practice.

Kids Yoga (ages 3-8)

Kids yoga not only fun, but it is a great way to get your little one active. It is also a great opportunity to start to introduce calming breath techniques and mindfulness. Don’t you wish you learned these things at a young age?

Mommy and Me Yoga (ages 0-2)

The first two years after you birth your baby is a crazy time, but also a sacred one. Mommy and Me Yoga specializes in taking extra time to connect to your baby, while you still get a great post-natal yoga workout in.

Pranayama (breath work)

One of the best ways to ease the mind and access the depths of meditation is through the breath. There are multiple pranayama techniques to facilitate calming the central nervous system, as well as enhance overall wellness through cleansing, purifying, and energizing.

……………………………………………..

Meditation

This is the whole point of yoga, really! A consistent meditation practice creates clarity and contentment. Many people find that guided meditation is the most accessible way to access space in the mind. There are many techniques and visualizations used to create stillness and peace. A series of private or group guided meditation sessions may be exactly what you need to feel grounded, balanced, focused, and calm.

……………………………………………..

Yoga Nidra (guided sleep)

This particular form of meditation is great to come to when you feel low energy, haven’t gotten enough rest, or have been having trouble sleeping at night. They say a 45-minute Yoga Nidra meditation is equivalent to 4 hours of sleep! This is a guided, lying down meditation that goes deep into the subconscious mind, allowing you to connect to deep layers within the mind and also feel extremely rested and relaxed.
