Yoga Classes:

bulletThe studio has a variety of classes for every level -- our class are light-hearted an fun while still focusing on the important aspects of a Yoga practice:
bullet

Monday Evening Open Hatha Yoga -- We may flowing from pose to pose slowly with a focus on moving with the breath, or hold poses for an extended time. We may try some advanced poses, or some advanced breathing practices.  Then deep stretching and relaxation.  Some Yoga experience is beneficial but beginners are welcome.

bullet

Mixed Level and Mixed Yoga Tuesday in Bentonville at the NWA Concierge Medicine office, J & 28th Streets, 5:30PM. All level of experience welcome.

Join us -- $10/class.

bullet

Yin Yoga Saturday mornings will reach deep within joints to the bones and fascia to stretch and open tight areas, stimulate and open meridians, and increase the flow of chi/prana.
bullet

What is Yin Yoga? It is a balancing practice for your flow/core/hatha style of yoga, or for anyone experience tight joints and muscles. Yin Yoga works deeply, targeting the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not target as much in a more active style of Yoga practice, primarily the hips, pelvis and lower spine, but focus on shoulders, neck and upper back is also practiced.  Poses (primarily stretching poses) are held for longer 3 minutes minimum, and blankets, bolsters and blocks are commonly used to support you in your practice. Yin Yoga is suitable for all levels of experience. Many students have experiences relief from hip or back pain from just one class.

Pilates Classes:

bullet

Mat and Ball (or Hoop) Exercises based on Spencer Pilates (and we work too hard not to laugh once in a while). Each "section" is done for approximately 20 minutes:  
bullet

Mat routines will be a series of movements designed to strengthen your abdominal and back muscles (core muscles).  These are done in a continuous flowing sequence, with pauses for resting and stretching.  We also include some upper body and leg/thigh/glut firming exercises. Mat routines are done after warming up with either the ball or hoops.

bullet

Ball exercises are practiced with a large ball, sitting on the ball, holding the ball between your feet or in your hands, lying over the ball, or lying on the mat with your legs resting on the ball. These exercises strengthen your core and are great for strengthen the arms, legs, thighs and gluts.

bullet

Hula-hoop fitness are using large padded and slightly weight hula hoops to strengthen our core -- and have fun. We learn to spin while hooping, walk while hooping (harder than it sounds), and sometimes we even do the Hokey Pokey while hooping.

bullet

Stretching is very important considering all the strengthening and toning done in class, so the last 20 minutes are deep total stretches.

"Yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision,
but today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
and every tomorrow a vision of hope."
