All Levels Yoga: A traditional yoga class in a non-heated space. Classes will emphasize alignment, breath and technique. Instructors will offer modifications for beginner to advanced students. Classes include traditional yoga asanas such as Warrior 1, Warrior 2 & Chair pose, plus more advanced balances & binds. This class promotes strength, balance, flexibility, and stress reduction.
Beginners Yoga: This class is designed for beginners and will move slower than the “all levels” with extra attention to form, technique and proper breathing. If you are new to yoga, you may find this short article helpful: “What to expect in your first yoga class at Progress Yoga.”
Yin Yoga: A class where seated stretches are held for 3 to 5 minutes to promote flexibility and mobility. This extended time helps target the muscles and connective tissues such as ligaments, tendons & fascia. Students also experience meditative benefits and peace of mind.
Stretch!: A class for all levels that combines dynamic (moving) and static (held) stretches. These stretches are held for 60 seconds or less. Props such as blocks, straps, bolsters and the wall may be used. Reduce tension, increase flexibility and improve your range of motion. This class is a perfect complement to weight lifting, running and other sports.
Yoga Mix: This unique and fun class mixes three types of movement. 1/3 yoga flow, 1/3 core-abdominal-strength work and 1/3 stretching and breathing. Get a little of everything!
Roll & Release: This class uses Yoga TuneUp Therapy Balls to stretch and massage your muscles, tissue and fascia. Students use the balls in different positions and with different techniques (rolling, pressing, turning) to achieve the desired release in the target areas. If you want to improve your mobility and flexibility while reducing stress, Roll & Release is a great option.
Restorative Yoga: Restorative yoga helps to promote deep relaxation, reduce stress and let go of tension. Students practice seated or reclining restorative poses on a yoga mat listening to soothing music. Props such as bolsters, blocks, blankets and straps are used to assist with the experience. Suitable for all levels.
Pilates Mat: Low-impact exercises that strengthen and lengthen muscles, improve postural alignment and enhance flexibility. Movements are slow and controlled. Exercises focus on the core (trunk) muscles while also training arms and legs. Mat Pilates can be modified for any age, body, or fitness level.
