What type of yoga do you teach?
Our Hatha and Hatha Vinyasa yoga classes are designed to meet the needs of students in integrating the practice into their daily lives. Anita has been extensively trained and is committed to continuing education for personal and teaching development.
What is the structure of your class?
Classes start with a 5-10 minutes settling in and warm up, where students are guided to bring themselves into the present moment through the observation of one’s breath. The practice continues with asana (physical postures) and by inviting the breath as a guide and a means of moving oneself inward. Each class is planned for a well-rounded practice with asana (physical Postures) and pranayama (breathing practice). The end of each class is devoted to savasana (relaxation pose) to bring a deep sense of relaxation and inward peace. Savasana or ‘corpse’ pose is the final resting posture in a yoga session.
What is vinyasa?
Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized movement” where you move from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale. This technique is sometimes also called Vinyasa Flow, because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become dance-like.
Can I eat before class?
A light meal (fruits/veggies) is okay ½ – 1 hour prior to class. No heavy meals for 2-3 hours prior to class. Heavy food reduces energy levels, affects your strength, stamina and your ability to concentrate. Stay well hydrated.
Are there any age restrictions for yoga?
No, however a few health factors can affect how you practice. Modifications are offered for poses to suit all ages, fitness abilities and any specific physical needs.
