Our Classes

ASHTANGA – VINYASA  YOGA WITH THOMAS: This  class challenges students to “Burn Bright”. They are predominantly based on the Ashtanga system but the practice is laced with modern approaches to yoga such as Anusara the ‘Rocket’ style. The classes link asanas with breath to create a strong physical practice that is designed to build balance, heat, flexibility and concentration.

STRALA YOGA:  is a movement system that helps people drop stress from their bodies and minds, unlocking each person’s limitless potential to be radiantly healthy, fit and happy.  The Yoga postures, rather than being  “held” statically for long, instead flow together in a soft relaxed & controlled style and are carried along by the natural flow of breath similar to a Thai chi experience. It’s like watching yoga “underwater”!  This movement, this breath body mind connection is designed to stimulate the body’s
warrior-3relaxation response, stimulating feelings of

immense well-being and joy.  As the flow becomes more challenging the same focus on moving steadily with the breath is observed and we learn to move through postures that seemed difficult before, become more easeful. What happens in a Strala yoga class is that you will be guided through a continuous flow of simple and challenging postures lead by the breath and you will never need to push force or strain. You will be asked to stay easy in your body the whole time & work within your own comfort zone. Join Margaret Holland on a new experience in her hot yoga classes using this method and a non-hot yoga class on Wednesdays.

THERAPEUTIC/HATHA YOGA:   In this asana practice, the use of ‘Iyengar Ropes & Chairs and more props to open and support different parts of the body.  Students become more aware of their own asymmetries and can more easily attain proper alignment. Performing “asanas” with the assistance of all these yoga props, students are able to target specific areas of the body, strengthening and stretching as they progress, making it possible to attain poses that are difficult due to age, stiffness, injury or fear. Balance is improved along with flexibility and stamina. Students often experience asana on a deeper level because they are able to remain longer in the pose. Once students learn to take support of the props, they develop courage to pursue the asanas that once seemed impossible to them.

AERIAL YOGA:  Sometime life can weigh heavy on us,aero-maria we go to a yoga class to feel lighter in our mind and body. The aero yoga swing will literally make you feel lighter. Let the therapeutical aspects of the swing make you feel weightless while being in the air. Join this creative fun and challenging class to give you a feeling of freedom. Maria is a certified aero yoga teacher since 2014 by the National Aero Yoga Association (ANYA).

YIN YOGAIs a quiet practice suitable for students of all levels of experience. Many of the poses are seated, supine or prone and are held with muscles relaxed for several minutes. The Yin parts of our body are the parts that lie closest to our core, specifically the bones and connective tissue. There is a focus on the breath, being present in the moment, relieving tension and letting go.
