This is our classic, open-level Vinyasa Flow class. In it, we honor the infinite possibility inherent in each breath as we move through an asana practice that is equal parts challenging and sweet. Asana practice becomes a transformational and healing experience when it is intimately tied to breath-work. Although the class is physically rigorous, we offer modifications to accommodate your level of experience.
New to yoga or just want to take a refresher? The beginner Vinyasa class is a gentler class intended for those who want to learn the fundamentals of a Vinyasa practice or to remember the basics of postures and alignment. The instructor will offer hands-on adjustments and posture modifications to accommodate new or tighter bodies. Feel free to use blocks and straps, available free of charge. Your instructor is happy to answer your questions.
Gentle Yoga is designed for anyone who would like to practice at a careful, soothing, conscientious pace. It is especially suited to: seniors; those recovering from injury; those who suffer from arthritis or other ailments that prevent full range of motion; those who are very tight; and those who are overweight. Students have reported feeler better, lighter, and younger after beginning a weekly gentle yoga regimen. Don’t let bodily limitations prevent you from enjoying the physical and emotional benefits of a yoga practice.
Open to all levels, we ask for a donation of $5 or more for this fun, inviting class designed to make yoga accessible to anyone who’s curious! Suitable for new practitioners and anyone else. All proceeds benefit Family of Woodstock’s Family Inn of Kingston, a program that provides shelter and a variety of services for the children of Ulster County area families in need.
As the foundation to all else in yoga asanas, core strength makes not just poses but daily life feel easier. With flowing Vinyasa sequences, this class incorporates core-strengthening transitions and postures that target your abdominals, obliques, spine, pelvic floor and shoulder girdle. And, as important as strengthening the core muscles, we’ll also practice melty postures to ease those same muscles groups. You’ll find you’ll stand taller, feel stronger, and exude confidence. The class is fun and challenging, but we encourage you to take a pace that suits your body’s needs.
A challenging Vinyasa Flow class that incorporates inversions and arm balances throughout. Expect a strong flow, some wall work, and partner play. We set an intention each week derived from yogic philosophy. All who are willing are welcome: If you love attempting arm balances and handstands, even if you can’t yet execute them (!!), you should absolutely try this class.
Need some time on the mat but don’t have someone to watch baby? Bring baby along to this Mommy & Me class, designed for Mom to reconnect with her mind, body and breath through a flowing yoga practice. Bring a blanket and a favorite toy to occupy Baby while Mommy strikes an “asana.” It’s up to Mom if she’d like to incorporate Baby into her practice, and anything goes in this class, so take a break to nurse, change or cuddle Baby if the moment presents itself.
Yoga Story Time
Looking to introduce yoga to your 2-4 year old, but not sure how? This ain’t no ordinary book-reading. Our story time will engage your child in a new way as Mel Toth, yoga instructor and previous childhood educator, has creatively combined stories and books with teaching your children yoga poses and yoga breathing. Your toddler will begin to understand his/her body and movement which will help with coordination, spacial awareness, and following directions. (Adult attendance required.) $10 to drop-in or a 5-class card for $35.
Second Sunday Ashtanga
Meeting the second Sunday of each month, this class is dedicated to the sacred practice of Ashtanga Yoga. We will do the Primary Series, or Yoga Chikitsa, at each class. All levels welcome, even those who have never experienced Ashtanga before. Read more about this style of yoga here, and click here to see when we meet in 2015.
This class provides a peaceful atmosphere to allow the body, mind, and spirit to rejuvenate itself. Props (blankets and blocks) are used to prevent stress on the body. The mind finds space through the breath to be open to new ideas and patterns. Balancing the body and mind through the breath allows the nervous system to relax and the immune system to function better. When you leave a class you will feel at ease physically and emotionally.
This is an open-level class with a catch: climate control set to about 88 degrees. We’re not aiming for crazy-hot, just good and warm – enough to ramp up your metabolic fire and make you feel extra long and flexible. When the room is heated, stiff muscles and joints melt open easily, twists are deeper, and the sweat pours more freely. Loyal attendees report, you leave with a natural high.
Yin Yoga is a realm of yoga practice based on holding poses for longer periods of time in comparison to more traditional Yang based yoga (such as hatha, vinyasa, or ashtanga yoga). As Yin Yoga helps a person gain flexibility deep at the connective tissue level as well as at the joints, it also allows for an internal body awareness that is helpful for meditation as stresses held by the body are released. No previous yoga experience is necessary.
AcroYoga is a style of partner yoga consisting of a base, a flyer, and a spotter. Combining elements of yoga, acrobatics, and Thai yoga massage, it offers a playful way to connect with fellow community members. This self-guided class is open to all. An instructor will be available to provide guidance and assists.
