~Class description

Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series
uses breath to link postures. Often called
the original vinyasa yoga, Ashtanga has origins in India going back
thousands of years. Today it is practiced the world over by people of all
ages, abilities, and experience levels. Ashtanga is a therapeutic practice
often used by individuals to correct musculoskeletal misalignment. The
Primary Series usually takes 90 minutes long, and modifications are given
so all can practice.

Beginners Yoga A moderately paced Beginners Yoga Class. Some poses are
held as Restorative poses - which means you stay in a relaxing, almost effortless
pose for a longer amount of time in order to affect the nervous system and organs.
There is abundant use of props and variations to provide options in poses, as each
body/day/season/mood fluctuates. These differences continually affect what the
individual person needs and what edges can be reached on a given day. I aim
to account for this range and provide assistance in transforming the state of your
mind and body to be more open, relaxed, and resilient.

Kundalini Yoga for Mental Clarity & Healthy Nervous System ~ Kundalini
Yoga for Everyone … beginners are welcome and encouraged. This series
works systematically from the base of the spine to the top, adding flexibility.
Many people report greater mental clarity after doing this kriya.

Kundalini Yoga for a Radiant You ~Kundalini Yoga is called the Yoga
of Awareness. It is a dynamic, powerful tool that is designed to give you
an experience of your soul. In Kundalini Yoga we harness the mental,
physical, and nervous energies of the body and put them under the
domain of the will, which is the instrument of the soul. This technology
precisely and consciously combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra,
body locks, and postures to balance the glandular system, strengthen
the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purifiy the blood. It brings
balance to the body, mind, and soul.

"In Kundalini Yoga the most important
thing is your experience. It goes right to your heart. No words can replace
your experience. Your mind may accept the words or it may not, but your
consciousness will not accept just words."
-Yogi Bhajan,
"The kundalini experience does not mean you have gone into a deep
breathless trance and are beyond this world. … It integrates you more
fully with reality and gives you a broader vision and sensitivity so that
you can act more efficiently."
~Yogi Bhajan

Magical Healing Mantras and Gong Bath~Join Lana for a restorative session
of Sound Healing using crystal bowls, mantras and the gong. We’ll begin with
a short breathing exercise and/or guided meditation for the deepest experience.

Meditative Yoga is an appropriately – paced and gentle
way to guide mind and body deeper into the heart of one’s true self.
This class will prepare oneself for the week ahead by building stamina
and reducing stress. The asana practice will focus on breath work with
therapeutic movements that rejuvenate the joints and muscles of the body.
Each class will end with a Yoga Nidra session. Yoga Nidra is a
systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional
relaxation, teaching us to relax consciously, increase physiological function,
reduce anxiety, relieve depression symptoms andstress. This ancient practice
is relevant and accessible to all.

Open Mind Body Balance~ starting with breath work and moving into a
series that open and balance the body and mind. Finishing with svanasana
and optional guided body scan and meditation at the end of class.

Open Mysore-Style Practice~Do you ever wish sometimes for a space in
which to practice that isn’t a ledclass and where you can work with a
teacher more individually? Perhaps you would like to do chatturanga
without shoulder discomfort, or perhaps you just need help pairing
breath with movement. Mysore practice can provide that. Mysore is
a practice tradition borne out of Ashtanga for anyone seeking
assistance in alignment, explanation of asanas, or modifications.
It is self-led and is appropriate for practitioners of all styles.
