Hatha Yoga Flow

The Hatha practice is where all yoga is derived from and is a wonderful place for beginners to start. You
 
will learn basic poses, relaxation techniques and terminology that you will find in almost every other 
 
style of yoga. Classic Hatha is recognized as a gentle style of yoga with a methodical pace between 
 
poses. In Hatha, you can expect a slower-paced practice that focuses on breathing and learning poses. 
 
It is a great place to learn; however, intermediate and advanced students can also push themselves 
 
by holding poses deeper and longer. Expect simple breathing exercises and possibly some seated 
 
meditation.

Mondays & Fridays 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Wednesdays 10:15 AM - 11:15 AM

Instructor: Raymond Clark

 

Flow Yoga

Start your day refreshed and relaxed. Join this class for an alignment-based, body and heart opening practice to prepare for the day ahead. Links traditional Hatha postures into a sequence of movements that flow naturally from one to the next.  This eclectic class will explore variations of sun salutations, standing and seated poses along with body balancing.  Modifications will be provided for postures to enhance flexibility, alignment, and strength and make this class accessible for all.  Connecting the breath with the movement of the body during the “flow” of yoga and deepening into the “stretch” allows energy to flow and provides relaxation for the busy mind.

Wednesdays 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM with Barbara Crompton
Saturdays 10:15 AM - 11:30 AM with Barbara

Pilates Reformer - One on One Sessions with Claudia Velazquez Diosdado

Pilates can be beneficial for virtually all ages, fitness levels and body conditions. The method is like 

a bridge between physical fitness and physical therapy, and can be adapted, modified and customized 
for individual needs. Some advanced moves and sequences seem to demand youthful energy yet others 
are manageable for even the frailest physique. It's more about fitness condition than age. One's 
chronological number doesn't necessarily limit one's movement capabilities - sometimes a 75 year old 
can perform contortions on the Cadillac while a 20 year old struggles with a simple roll up. 
Not a group class, you work one on one with Pilates instructor. A personal training session is 
the most effective way to learn, practice and perfect your Pilates performance. The instructor 
devotes undivided attention to your specific needs and develops a custom program for optimum 
results. Ideally 2x's a week is fine, but you can schedule 3x's a week if you prefer more sessions a week.
