CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

BEGIN

New to yoga, coming back from injury, or need a refresher? This is where to begin {again}. Accessible and alignment based, this class will be taught “lesson style” meaning that there will be space to ask questions and receive personalized adjustments.  This class will teach static poses and the foundation of how to flow safely and mindfully. Practice being courageous. We all know that it takes a lot of heart to step on to the mat the first time or to return after things have changed. Like every class at Sacred Chill, this class will be served with a sweet side of savasana and meditation. 

YIN YOGA

This style of yoga is relatively still and focuses on passive poses (or relaxing the body and muscles) combined with holding poses longer while focusing breath, sensation, and internal movement.  Practice being with sustained intensity. Many of the poses are seated or lying on your back or stomach. Longer holds in the pose help facilitate the slow and safe opening of connective tissues like tendons and ligaments. Yin is a great counter balance to more active styles of yoga.

All levels.

RESTORATIVE YOGA

Explore the benefits of stillness, relaxation, and rest in this class.  Designed to revitalize your body and mind, practice releasing and receiving. Class includes both gentle movements to warm up and completely supported long held (at least 10 minutes) postures. Great for both the new and advanced student, this practice supports recovery from more vigorous practices and workouts, provides rest after a long workday or week, and space to simply recharge.

All Levels.

YIN FLOW

Our Yin Flow series is designed to address tension in the connective tissue of the body with a 30 minute yin practice, followed by 20 minutes of vinyasa flow — taking you deeper into postures and allowing you to move more freely in transitions between. We will end will meditation and a long savasana.

A regular yin practice can have considerable impact to chronic tightness and imbalances causes by overuse. This class will be a physical AND sound/musical journey. By fusing art/sound with movement, we inspire a deeper, less cerebral connection to our energetic bodies.

All levels.

FLOW AND BE STILL

Begin seated or resting  mindfully on your back and work up to an accessible flow that will focus on engaging the body and mind in preparation for a practice in stillness. Stillness is reflected in many ways, through many practices. This class will sample small our offerings in meditation, yoga nidra, or long held restorative poses.  A perfect way to start or end your day, you’ll balance strong movement with the quiet intention of stillness. Expect about 40 minutes of flow, 15 minutes of stillness and a 5-minute savasana.

All levels

MEDITATION

A secular, mindfulness-based meditation class designed for all levels. Join us on the cushion for a brief talk at the beginning of each class to help focus our meditation sessions and then expect 20 – 25 minutes of lightly guided meditation. Practice being present. New to meditation? Join us a few minutes early so we can review comfortable seating options and basic instructions.

All levels.

SACRED POWER

What is power? What is your relationship to your inner power? Where does power come from in your body? Can we be both deeply compassionate and powerful? Are the two even different? These are some of the guiding questions that we will continually explore in our NEW class, Sacred Power.

This class is designed to stoke your inner fire, access deep alignment, and build strength while exploring the dynamic interplay of both vinyasa {flow} and stillness. Some sweat. Some Chill. All Sacred; this class will include core work (of the physical and meditation type), some longer holds of standing poses, and move at a moderate pace to allow time for mindful shifts and transitions. We’ll end with long held restorative poses and of course savasana.

Some yoga experience recommended.
