CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

sacredchillwest-homepage4

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. 

sacredchillwest-yoga-yinyoga

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.

sacredchillwest-yoga-restorative2

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.

sacredchillwest-yoga-nidrayoga

YOGA NIDRA

Also known as yogic sleep or sleep with awareness, the only posture held is a supported savasana {on the back}.  Practice resting. Yoga Nidra induces full-body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness. It is a systematic method of complete relaxation, holistically addressing our needs on many levels. A variety of techniques are used during class, including guided imagery and body scanning—to aid relaxation.  Yoga Nidra allows ample time to physiologically and psychologically go from being “turned up” to all the way settled down—Students often say they emerge feeling like they “slept” for hours after a single 30-45 minute yoga nidra session.

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.
