Class Descriptions...

Sunrise Yoga (All Levels)

Sunrise Yoga is a Mixed Level Hatha Flow class suitable for the enthusiastic beginner and intermediate student. Modifications and enhancements will be given as needed.

This class will start with a gentle warmup to wake the body. Then, depending on the needs of the students, we will either practice the componets of Hatha Flow in a slow and easy manner or move into a more vigorous Vinyasa Flow. Class finishes with stretching, deep relaxation.

Kundalini Yoga & Meditation (All Levels)

A traditional form of kriya yoga brought to the west by Yogi Bhajan that utilizes breath, movement, angles and sound to awaken energy flowing in the spine, the chakra system and the subtle bodies. Classes include a kundalini yoga set, a meditation and mantra that work directly to strengthen and balance the nervous system and the endocrine system while raising consciousness.

*Sunday Community Yoga (Donation Class)

This fun & relaxing yoga class for beginner and intermediate yogis is taught by Carla.

Carla has been teaching yoga for her "meetup" community at a neighborhood park and now Yoga Body & Soul is proud to provide space for them on Sunday mornings.

This donation class is open to the community including YB&S members.

* Suggested Donation ($5 - $10)

*Mindfulness Meditation (Donation Class)

Mindfulness is the practice by which one learns to be aware, accepting and non-judgemental of one's own experience in the present moment. It helps us realize that life is available only in the here and now and that the future and the past exist only in our minds.

Mindfulness is an ancient Buddhist practice adopted by the west due to its undeniable holistic benefits. It has been shown to calm the mind and emotions for increased psychological and cognitive clarity. With regular practice it can drastically improve the quality of life and helps develop the ability to stay grounded in the midst of stress.

In this short 30 minute class you will learn and practice a variety of simple techniques that focus awareness in the here and now so you can practice being present with yourself with compassion and acceptance.

* Suggested Donation ($3 - $5)
