A gentle flow class designed to induce physical relaxation and calm the mind. Fundamental yoga postures are introduced along with various breathing techniques.
Moderate Yoga (All Levels) - A well-rounded yoga session, gentle enough for the newcomer and challenging enough for the experienced. A strengthening practice which includes longer holding times, more inter-connective flow between postures and an emphasis on internal awareness. New postures and breathing techniques are introduced and students develop at their own pace.
Energetic Flow Yoga (Intermediate-Advanced) - Incorporates fluid, energetic movements with deep, rhythmic breathing. Linking movement with the breath enhances the health benefits of each pose including greater muscular strength and tone, increased flexibility and joint mobility, improved circulation, and hormonal balance. Thus, creating a more focused, calm and meditative state of awareness.
Chair Yoga (All Levels) - Enjoy the many benefits of yoga without having to be on the floor. Chair yoga brings yoga's integration of the body, mind and spirit to those unable to practice traditional mat yoga. It is also for those who sit at a desk for long period of time, and for those interested in ways to relieve stress by stretching and breathing during a busy day at work. You will leave feeling free of physical limitations and with a profound state of harmony, balance, and healing with this innovative approach to traditional mat yoga.
Christ-Centered Yoga (All Levels) - A Christ-Centered Yoga Class with Danielle is an intentional Christ-centered yoga practice of connecting our entire being; body, mind and spirit with God; the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. With complete reliance on God's word and prayer, Christ-Centered Yoga invites us to surrender and introduces us to Grace. When we breathe and move and have our being in Christ, we find ourselves in the flow of His magnificence. There is often a misunderstanding that yoga is a religion, it is not. Yoga is a physical discipline much like running, gymnastics, dance, football, and many other sports. Christ-Centered Yoga has the capacity to enhance one's personal Christian beliefs and faith through applying God's word with bodily exercise. In Christ-Centered Yoga, we pursue unity of the body, mind and His Holy Spirit that dwells within us, with the intention of worshiping and serving the Lord with our entire beings.
Prenatal Yoga (All Levels) - Prenatal Yoga is one of the best gifts you can give yourself and your developing baby. Preparing your body for labor and motherhood is the goal of Prenatal Yoga. Using the breathing techniques associated with yoga can help you in the labor and delivery process. Many yoga postures that are focused on opening up the hips or pelvic floor muscles, will help prepare for natural childbirth and may help ease labor and delivery by increasing strength, flexibility and endurance of the muscles needed for childbirth. During pregnancy, the body produces the hormone relaxin, which softens the connective tissue. Yoga postures can help to stabilize and strengthen the sacroiliac joints and promote flexibility in the muscles and fascia. Breathing is the most essential part of Prenatal Yoga, however, it is important to avoid any kind of breath retention, which can limit the baby's oxygen supply. As correct breathing nurtures the circulatory, cardiovascular, endocrine, digestive, and nervous system, sleep becomes more sound and stress and anxiety are reduced.
