Yoga is a traditional practice from India encompassing awareness through breathing, meditation, and physical postures, all aiming towards spiritual liberation.
We offer Ashtanga, Hatha, and Vinyasa style Yoga. Clients are guided through movements that promote bodily awareness synchronized with breath, and are thereby safeguarded from injury while becoming more dexterous and kinesthetically self-aware. By locating the breath, aspiring yogis are able to access energy, grace, and balance through movements that birng us closer to homeostasis (balanced state).
You should bring comfortable clothes that allow you to move easily.
The majority of the session time, you will be moving your body through a variety of interesting and challenging positions that nurture suppleness, dexterity, and awareness. As you continue to practice, the positions will become familiar, allowing you to discover new challenges which keep you engaged along the journey. Sessions ends with a restorative pose and a moment of meditation.
Ashtanga-Inspired Flow with Dana Tarasavage
Traditional Ashtanga Sun Salutations begin every class. Students then move through a powerful, inspiring standing series. We focus on building strength and stamina, lengthening muscles and creating a deep core connection. Next, we explore seated postures, including forward and backward bends, twists and optional inversions. The ujjayi breath is used to calm and connect mind and body. Strong, precise, alignment-based movements are encouraged by use of the Movement Salon’s unique “Align-Mats.”
Conquering Lion Yoga with Ering McGrath
Deeply grateful to her teachers, especially Kelly Morris, Erin teaches Conquering Lion yoga which maintains that the goal of Yoga is nothing less than reaching Enlightenment for the sake of every living being. The practitioner develops this wish through their Yoga practice: using the breath, the body and the mind together to reach that single, sacred goal. Expect to sweat in the name of love!
Vinyasa and Meditation with Rachel Stokoe
Acceptance of the present to let the ego fall away: this is the practice of yoga and the aim of my classes. A Vinyasa flow based on personal experience through asanas and breath; a state of awareness where motion and stillness are interchangeable; flowing movement with attention to alignment and rigor that gives way to breath; breath which carries into it a fluidity of body and mindfulness: this is yoga. Yoga is what we bring to our lives, and this understanding is what we bring to our mats. Yoga is the practice and discipline that brings us closer to a state of grace.
Vinyasa Flow with Christine Gagen
Christine has been practicing a mix of yoga styles since she was a teenager. The heart of yoga for her is the fact that it is a practice, a constant practice in which, every day, every pose and sequence is a new experience. Yoga is a commitment to wholeness, to honoring our true selves, and to contributing to the collective frequency of all creatures. Her personal teaching style is an active Vinyasa flow encouraging the balance of ease and strength.
Private Session $70 – $85 per hour
We also recommend supplementing your Yoga training with Pilates private instruction or Pilates Machine Classes. Pilates is a powerful system of core strengthening that complements the opening of the body experienced during Yoga. See our Pilates page for more information.
