CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Description of Classes

Beginner

The Beginner class is a good place to begin if you are new to yoga or coming back to yoga. This class is an introduction to a basic group of yoga poses, breath awareness and deep relaxation. You'll be instructed in the practice of safe alignment and proper breathing in each pose so that you can experience the benefits of yoga from the very first class. The class is taught at a pace that fully allows each student plenty of time to understand and integrate the instructions. You'll learn ways to modify any of the poses to accommodate your individual needs.

Level 1

This class is a continuation of the Beginner class. It is appropriate for individuals who feel comfortable and confident in the Beginner class and are ready to be more challenged, or for individuals with prior yoga experience. It may also be a good class to begin for students who are physically fit. Students are introduced to Sun Salutations and a wide variety of asanas (physical postures) as they continue to refine their physical alignment and internal awareness within their practice.

Gentle Yoga

Gentle Yoga is ideal for individuals who feel limited by age, weight, arthritis, or other physical limitations. In this class we use plenty of props, including chairs, if needed, to make the poses safe and accessible to anyone regardless of their particular needs.

Stretch and De-Stress

Just as the name implies, this class is a really wonderful way to de-stress and unwind tension. If you don't want to be overly challenged in the poses, but still crave that deep release the yoga offers, this is the class for you. When you stretch the long muscles of the body, the nervous system releases tension and stress. This class is appropriate for everyone, from the beginner to the more experienced practitioner.

NOTE: All classes at Sunrise Yoga end with Savasana (deep relaxation).
