Hit the Mat

We are all busy. Stop and nurture the person that makes the family routine fly, you! There are many types of yoga and they all have one thing in common; nurturing the mind, body, and spirit. Commit to going to a class just three times a week and see a transformation in your attitude, outlook, and dress size. Wether you are a beginner or a yogi there is a place for everyone in each style of yoga.
 

Familiar Terms

Asana-posture
 

Pranayama-breath control
 

Asthanga yoga-which means “eight limbs” in Sanskrit, is a fast-paced, physically demanding, intense, aerobic style of yoga. Often referred to as Power Yoga, it will transform your body into a powerful force and give you lots of stamina. A series of poses are performed in a certain order every time flowing from one asana to the next using a certain pranyama. Developed by K.Pattabhi Jois.

Hatha-really incorporates many of the physical forms of yoga in a slower pace. Breath is key here along with meditation. Many people find this to be relaxing and a good place to start.
 

Integral-This practice is about the control of breath as much as the postures. Developed by Swami Satchidananda.
 

Prenatal yoga-can help with proper body alignment, reduce pelvic tilt, improve circulation of blood and oxygen throughout the body, and helps aid in digestion. Practicing yoga during pregnancy will help your body transition into a smooth labor as you will have strengthened the muscles necessary for delivery of your precious baby.

Bikram-is a rigorous form of yoga that is performed in a 100+ degree room. Each posture in the sequence is designed to safely stretch and open the body, in preparation for the next posture. Developed by Bikram Choudhury. I am in love with this style of yoga! Through years of wear and tear as a gymnast this yoga made my body feel pliable from the heat and proper warm-up. It is truly the best form of exercise I have ever known. I have never seen a practice that requires as much strength and flexibility at the same time. This is a transformation:try it!
