Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga

Dissolve obstacles that are are blocking you from experiencing the full flow of of your practice!

Jessi Ringer CopyrightCore Strength Vinyasa Yoga™ is a creative style of Hatha Yoga which blends the principles of Hatha Yoga and a set of physical and energetic alignment principles. Developed by Sadie Nardini, this method is a totally new idea of the practice, one that will help you tap into your true core strength.

Get more benefit in less time by drawing inward to seek, and find, your inner strength! Break the habit of moving only from the outer body and loading layers of tension onto yourself. You will discover how to use your Deep Core Lines along the skeleton to make all of your poses more possible as you keep your body healthy for years of yoga to come.

Tuesdays at 9am & 6pm at The Glowing Body. 1 hour 30 minutes.

Vital Vinyasa, Releasing Ropes

ropes_wallLengthen, strengthen & get a ton of core flexibility!  A strong and flexible core is the foundation for the entire body. In this class, we’ll tap into the power at our center through a revitalizing Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga™ flow that will connect us with the inner thighs, pelvic floor & lower abs creating deep heat and awareness. The class features creative rope work to increase mobility and strength in the upper chest, lower back, legs and pelvis.

You’ll definitely get a good workout, but more importantly, you will become more connected and comfortable in your own body.

Mondays at 11am The Glowing Body. 1 hour 30 minutes.

Yinyasa

Yinyasa ClassThe fusion of Yin yoga and Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga™ creates an integrated, balanced practice. In the first part of this class, we will focus on the yin yoga style to find release in our connective tissues and create space and integrity in both our joints and our minds. The yin postures focus on the hips, pelvis, lower back, and knees, helping the body to remain supple at its core.

The yin portion of the class transitions into a more active yang portion. Yang yoga is the rhythmic, flowing repetition of movements that require strength and balance. A Yang practice emphasizes breath work and bandhas (internal locks) to facilitate heat generation and deep internal awareness thereby building on the release cultivated in the yin portion of the class.

Practicing in this way does amazing things for your back! It’s my favorite way to practice, by far. Each class will consist of about 30 minutes of Yin Yoga and 1 hour Yang Yoga with Shavasana (relaxation) at the end of class.

Saturdays at 9am at The Glowing Body. 1 hour 30 minutes.

Yin Yoga

yin_classThe practice of the Yin Yoga technique can help increase flexibility and overall body awareness. Yin Yoga targets the deep, dense, rarely touched connective tissues – the tendons, ligaments and cartilage. The yin areas of the body generally targeted are between the navel and knees; the lower body. Yin postures are done primarily on the floor and held with little to no muscular effort for 2 to 5 minutes each. The essence of Yin is yielding — learning how to not struggle and how to allow things to unfold naturally.

Since Yin Yoga postures gently stretch and rehabilitate the connective tissues that form our joints, it is the perfect compliment to Yang activity (vigorous yoga, running, weight training, etc.). In order to maintain joint flexibility, we must exercise them, but joints cannot be exercised like muscles, we must exercise them in Yin fashion. Connective tissues require long-holds and reasonable amounts of traction to be stimulated properly.

Enhance your yang practice dramatically with this technique. Active people probably need Yin Yoga more than anyone else. This may prove to be one of your best yoga experiences yet as you develop new levels of awareness in each posture and alignment corrections.

Wednesdays at 6pm at The Glowing Body. 1 hour 30 minutes.
