Fundamentals of Yoga - a year of classes 2017

This new offering will consist of a year of classes allowing participants to progressively learn and broaden their understanding of Yoga. Carolyn will introduce the basic elements of postures, breathing techniques, meditation, and relaxation, as well as touch upon Yoga ethics, philosophy, and the benefits of Vedic chanting. Serving as a foundation for beginners, this class will also be useful for those who want to review and expand their general yoga knowledge. As a result each individual will learn to apply these various tools in specific ways for their own individual benefit.

The class is open to all regardless of previous yoga experience. Because this is a NEW class, please reserve a place with Carolyn.

Yoga Study

This class will review the basic philosophy, theories, and practices of classical Yoga as presented in various ancient texts and epics. Students will learn some simple Sanskrit chants (in Sanskrit) that deal with nature, healing, and well-being. Each session will offer a simple practice to experience the various techniques of Yoga for body, breath, and mind. Please contact Carolyn with any questions.

Going Deeper Into Yoga

For continuing students this class will refine the Yoga postures and include breathing practices and the use of sound, to experience Yoga at a deeper level.

Mantra, Movement & Meditation

The use of mantra with breath centered movement can create a rich and transformative effect within a yoga practice. Mantra is simply the repetition (chanted out loud or silently) of a meaningful word or phrase to create a desired connection or effect. When employed with mindful movement, the experience can encompass all dimensions of your being...linking mind, body, breath and spirit. When used to support meditation, mantra helps the mind to stay focused and calm. In this on-going class, we will explore the use of sound in relationship to movement & meditation...providing you with an opportunity to move more deeply into your yoga experience.

Morning Movement

Start your day on the right foot with this morning vinyasa yoga class. This vinyasa yoga class is designed to wake up your body, build some heat and balance your mind, leaving you rejuvenated and ready to breeze through your day. This class will focus on breath and movement. It is great for beginners and intermediate yogis alike.

Breathing into Strength and Balance

Learn how to harness the energy of the breath in creating a stable and balanced body and mind. The breath is the foundation upon which we can learn to inhabit and move our bodies with balanced fluidity and ease. In this class, will we explore and refine this dynamic and essential breath/body relationship through a creative & well-sequenced blend of yoga movements. Light hand weights (2-3 lbs.) will be used during selected postural movements to further develop bone/muscle resiliency and strength. The class will conclude with pranayama (breath) meditation to assimilate the practice and quiet the mind.

Restorative Candlelight Yoga

Sooth your senses, restore your body and calm your mind. Begin by entering the serene candlelit surroundings of Bluewater Yoga Studio...then allow yourself to be guided through a series of gentle restorative postures, enhanced with breath meditations, sound and visualization...all woven together to bring you back toward your inner light.

Yoga Sutra-s of Patanjali

The meaning and practical application of yoga philosophy, as presented in the text The Yoga Sutra-s by the sage Patanjali, will be presented and discussed along with the chanting of the sutra-s in Sanskrit. This ongoing class is for everyone with a serious interest in learning about the true breadth and depth of yoga. Each two hour class will include discussion followed by a practice at the intermediate level. Please contact Carolyn with any questions.

Yoga for Well-Being

A gentle and restorative class to calm the senses and nourish the body. Gentle movements and restorative postures will be combined with breath, visualization and sound to deepen inner awareness and clarity. This mindful class will provide a spacious and nurturing container from which to explore your inner self....gently coaxing the release of patterns which constrict your sense of ease and well-being.
