Taylor Yoga Class Descriptions

Beginner Yoga Class:

Yoga is for Every Body! Learn the foundations of yoga so you can begin to experience its transformational effects. Explore proper alignment and correct breathing while developing strength, flexibility, and balance in a supportive environment.

Vinyasa Flow Class:

Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a challenging, active style of yoga, based on the Ashtanga Yoga system and falls under the umbrella of “Hatha Yoga.” The Vinyasa style emphasizes precise body alignment as well as moving through a series of postures or poses, linking each one with your breath. This union of movement and breath is incredibly powerful, and can help bring you to another level of consciousness with continued practice. With this style of yoga, expect your strength, flexibility, and stamina to be challenged.

Hot Yoga:

Taught in a 105 degree room, 26 consecutive poses and 2 breathing exercises requiring 90 minutes of time as an investment towards your health. The positive results will be noticed immediately, from your skin to your internal organs, each and every muscle will gain the benefits of this challenging, yet worthwhile form of yoga.

Gentle Therapeutic Yoga:

This class is excellent for people with health issues or recovering from injuries. A gentle, slow flowing practice on the mat or in a chair if necessary. Practitioners will learn to be at the moment, using breathing exercises to connect the mind and body.

Healing Meditation:

Sit back, relax and be led through a guided meditation that brings you to the present moment. This class will create consciousness and overall wellbeing. Meditation on a regular basis can help you to get healthy and stay healthy.

Pilates:

Pilates is similar to yoga but emphasizes your body’s core — the abdomen, obliques, lower back, inner and outer thigh, butt, and so on.  Pilates develops strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, coordination, balance, and good posture. With a much lower chance of injury than with other forms of exercise. The discipline emphasizes correct form instead of going for the burn. With so many exercise variations and progressions, it’s  hard to get bored with Pilates.

Belly Dancing:

It’ll help you stay in shape and allow you to express your personal creativity.  By demonstrating the health benefits through belly dance, we can build a positive self-image, thereby promoting the art of Bellydance as a healthy alternative towards maintaining good health and fitness. Belly dancing is a low-impact, moderate physical activity which increases flexibility, improves muscle tone and strength and is an excellent cardiovascular workout.

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with poses, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time—five minutes or more per pose is typical.

Yin Yoga works on the connective tissues in the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.
