Temp-er (verb): to improve the hardiness and elasticity of steel or other metal by heating and cooling it. Synonyms: harden, toughen.
Ren-der (verb): to melt down; to cause to become. Synonyms: re-shape, make.
Your body may not be made of metal, but the process of restoring strength, balance, and range of motion looks and feels a lot like the techniques used by the blacksmiths of old. Become a more durable product in the form of your choosing by adding Yoga to your fitness practice.
In this YIN YOGA class expect a slow moving practice you can melt into body, breath and mind with long held postures done on the floor or at the wall. Each pose is often supported by props for deeper release and can be held anywhere from 2-10 minutes. Each class is unique but expect some simple breath work, guided meditation and lots of space to reconnect with the body all while working through the challenge of learning to soften into these long held postures.
This class offers a chance to release tension, to reach the deeper tissues of the body, to build focus in stillness, and is a perfect compliment to more active physical practices.
In this POWER YOGA class expect long holds in active standing poses, powerful yet slow transitions, core focused work, and extended sequences on each side of the body. This class builds heat quickly and is designed to cultivate strength, focus, increased flexibility and movement linked to breath.
This class is a Vinyasa based practice which means we break up our powerful standing sequences with vigorous and fiery flow linked to breath. Strength mentally and physically is found in the discomfort, in a willingness to stay in whatever comes up body and mind, in knowing when to soften or back away, and in breathing through it all. This class is a great compliment to physical practices requiring focus, flexibility, breath control and endurance.
