All-levels Class with Deb Gambill:
(gentle-moderate levels) This class will have plenty of props and instruction for students. Variations will be offered to enhance the level and advancement of each student.
The class will include a variety of yogastyles and practices including: Vini-yoga, Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, Restorative Practice, and a monthly Yoga Nidra.**One Sunday a month, Yoga Nidra will be included (at the time of the full moon)for total relaxation for the entirety of the hour.All Levels Styles of Yoga:
Vini-yoga: Breathwork is emphasized combined with movement into and out of a pose(which works muscles) and stay(holding the pose while breathing which works and releases connective tissues that bind). Vini-yoga is for change and transformation. It is easily accessible to all levels of practitioners.
Hatha Yoga: Hat=Sun Ha=Moon. This is the most common yoga practice. Hatha yoga involves opposites, for example, “grounding down through the feet while extending the spine tall…? It involves mastery of utilizing the breath to slowly stretch bodies to benefit mobility and reduce pain.
Yin Yoga: Yin yoga has longer periods of “stay” in the poses, allowing for fuller experience and understanding of what is occurring in the body and mind during a pose. It is nurturing and self-explorative.
Restorative Yoga: Restorative uses a variety of props for the purpose of comfort. It requires little movement, but encourages rest and rejuvenation through long periods of reclining and relaxation.
Yoga Nidra: Nidra is the “awake sleep” celebration of the full moon. It is considered “female energy” for purposes of nurture and recovery. Highly meditative, practices often involve guided imagery and energetic awareness. Students will learn to clear their minds and allow their bodies to totally relax-in this state, body/mind/spirit can heal and restore.First Class $10Drop-in Rate $145 class card $60
