Yoga Class Description

DEEP and EASY
deep and easy yoga for those students seeking a slower pace yoga with an aspect of deep gentle stretching.  This is a class that fits Every-BODY.  We come into the breath and quiet the mind as we find steadiness in asana and attain increased flexibility, strength and balance. Each class provides personal modifications and emphasizes integrating mind, body, energy, and breath–all within a supportive environment using props to deepen the practice. In addition to sequencing for an energetic effect, meditation, pranayama, guided visualization, and mantra are offered.  All levels of practice are welcome.

THERAPUTIC YOGA
Here you will be given the tools to help you on your journey towards better health and wellness. Therapeutic Yoga is a particularly effective practice for those recovering from, or living with, injury, illness or inflexibility. Although EVERY-Body will benefit from practical applications in this practice. Therapeutic Yoga blends feldenkrais, cranial sacral, restorative yoga, gentle yoga, breathwork, hands-on healing, and guided meditation techniques combined in such a way that it is an excellent choice for those who need something gentle yet effective tools for bringing the body into balance and reducing stress. Therapeutic Yoga is a deeply meditative experience – it provides the opportunity to step away from the busy-ness of the outside world and access the deeper wisdom that resides within us. All levels of practice are welcome.

Warm Vinyasa *Moksha Kelowna Yoga

YOGA SCULPT
Boost metabolism and build lean muscle mass as you move to upbeat tracks. You’ll combine free weights with core power yoga sequencing, pilates, bow-spring and cardio to intensify each pose while mixing in strength training movements like squats, lunges and bicep curls. This practice balances and detoxifies your entire body and mind as you move through more challenging postures and connected breath. Be ready to move, breath, and ‘step it up’ in this invigorating practice.*My new favourite….Yoga, Pilates, weight training, bow-spring and cardio packed into 1 class!  You will love it!!!

BOW-SPRING
This intuitive and empowering practice is highly therapeutic and will offer deep growth in yoga practitioners of all levels. The Bow emphasizes strength and power in the back body with natural curvature of the spine, creating a bow spring-a symmetrical balance in the musculature and chiropractic alignment in the body. It is a strengthening, opening and healing practice that will leave you feeling lighter than ever in your body and mind. Bow Spring alignment optimizes performance, offers powerful therapeutic realignment for the lower back and hips, decreases joint and bone degeneration, bolsters the immune system, recalibrates the neuro-glandular system, and empowers the spirit of the student to cultivate a positive mindset. It’s all about posterior engagement, this is a strong and energizing practice.  Keep an eye out for workshops co-lead with Lucas Schroeder soon.
