vinyasa_express_Slider

 

Vinyasa Yoga is a flowing style where breath and movement are linked. The movement generates physical strength while the breath focus creates mental strength and a meditative approach to practice. This shorter length noon class is sure to give you the energy boost and mental clarity you need to see you through your day.

This 6-week series will be a beginner Vinyasa Flow style yoga class for those wanting to continue working on the basic postures. We will focus on linking our breath (pranayama) and physical postures (asanas) while taking time to break down a few of the fundamental poses. Suitable for all body types. Options will be given to modify poses to the intensity your body is asking for.


postnatal_Slider

 

This 6-week session for mom and baby is designed to re-awaken and strengthen the core after pregnancy. We will focus on specific muscles and areas of the body most commonly affected due to the physical changes that occur during pregnancy. All props and equipment provided.

THIS SESSION IS NOW FULL! Due to its popularity, we are considering adding a second session in January. If you would like to be added to the waiting list, please call (506) 388-1881 or email heather@bodywiseyoga.com.

The Primary Series is known as yoga chakitsa or yoga therapy. It is a practice to help cleanse the body of unbalanced tension, toxins, and thoughts. It also brings us into more conscious awareness of our core muscles (bandhas), breath, and the present moment.

This is a vigorous practice but there are many ways to modify postures for beginners or those with mobility issues so we may all access the therapy this style has to offer. Appropriate for generally fit beginners or novices, or those with minor mobility issues. No experience necessary.


prenatal_Slider

 

Prenatal yoga classes are designed with the health and comfort of both you and your baby in mind. The poses will help to reduce pain in the back, hips and legs in addition to helping you maintain good posture throughout your pregnancy, and giving you meditation and breathing techniques for labour and delivery. These gentle stretches will also help you prepare for the birth by toning the pelvic floor, allowing for a more relaxed yet controlled delivery with fewer complications and enhanced postnatal healing.  Prenatal yoga will help to prepare your body and mind for the transition into being a mother and staying in clear communication with yourself and your baby. No experience necessary.  Mats, props, and water available at the studio.


beginner_pilates_Slider

 

Heard of Pilates but not really sure what it is? Join Sasha for an informative 8 weeks where you will start with the beginner repertoire, gain an understanding of your core, and then apply those foundations to your progression of exercises.

Pilates is a physical fitness system designed to improve strength, endurance, and posture and is ideal for those with back injuries or those seeking proper alignment. Movements are similar to yoga, but include more concentrated movements with particular emphasis on improving the core.

This class is also suitable for intermediate level students, as each exercise has options for varying degrees of difficulty.


vinyasaflow_Slider

 

Vinyasa Flow is a favorite style of many yogis. With its roots in the eight-limb path, it brings together breath, movement, and balanced intention for practice. We don’t just do this for its physical benefits alone (of which there are many); it also teaches us how to live and be conscious of the moment through insights from our bodies. To make this style of practice appropriate for the evening, we will begin our classes with vigorous vinyasas (flowing sequences) and pranayama (breath exercises) and move into more gentle grounding vinyasas, passive postures, and meditation at the end. Appropriate for regular to intermediate practitioners.


gentleyoga_Slider

 

In this series we will go through postures very slowly and gently, learning ways to modify poses to honour your body and where you are in your practice as well as delving into the deeper purpose of the poses and exercises both physically and mentally. We use many props and tools to make the practice accessible and safe for anyone. This is a perfect class for the absolute beginner or those with mobility issues, but it also has benefit to the experienced yogi who may have spent more time in faster flowing classes. Taking the time to slow it down and get into the subtlety of yoga will surely enhance any level of practitioner. After finding this deeper understanding of how your body and mind work, we then learn ways to give them the support and release they may need. This is the therapy of yoga.


ashtangaprime_Slider

 

This is a mid-level practice where we will explore half Primary Series and on occasion, work-shop the postures in the second half of the Primary Series, going more slowly to focus on alignment and safety in those postures that we sometimes skip when going quickly through the series.

For students who have some knowledge of the Primary Series, this practice will also build upon your ability to link the postures together smoothly so that the mind can relax during practice. Eventually, the Ashtanga practice is meant to be a deeply meditative experience for the practitioner. Regardless of your proficiency in the postures – whether you move quickly or slowly through the sequence – we are meant to learn the postures by heart so that the mind can focus on the breath while the body moves through the asanas.

Pattabhi Jois’ quote, “Practice and all is coming,” becomes more relevant as you develop your personal relationship to practice, and even though there are challenges along the way, I would encourage perseverance, patience and humility – remembering that practice in yoga is a lifelong journey.


intermediate_pilates_Slider

 

This series is focused on fine tuning the intermediate exercises while gaining strength and confidence, enabling students to move on to some of the advanced repertoire.  Experience with Pilates is necessary.


restorative_Slider

 

Restorative yoga is an extremely passive and healing style of yoga where the ultimate goal is relaxation and restoration of the nervous system. This style helps you achieve a deep state of physical, mental, and emotional relaxation with the use of props in long-held passive yoga postures.

This style of yoga is ideal for anyone experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, exhaustion or simply needing the time and space to be able to relax deeply and let go.

Each class will begin with light movement before going into our longer held poses. We will explore breathing practices, as well as learn how these different techniques and yoga poses affect us physically, mentally, and emotionally. Deep rest is necessary for resiliency in our lives; the restorative practice is a simple way to move into the deep stillness necessary to restore and rejuvenate.


partner_Slider

 

Practicing with a partner is a whole new and wonderful world in yoga. Learn how to connect with someone else, while going deeper and to different places in your own asanas. We learn how to listen, match our breath, and be sensitive to someone else’s needs as well as communicate our own when we practice in physical connection with someone else. This is a profound and fun experience for friends or couples to build stronger trust, connection, and communication. Join us for this series on partner yoga practice where we will explore mirrored, counter, and assisted postures, general and Thai Yoga massage, and introductory acro yoga. No experience or flexibility necessary.
