There are 8 limbs of yoga and while the general misconception is that yoga postures are the whole enchilada, they are only 1 of the 8 components that make up this practice of yoga! Asana (yoga postures) is the 3rd limb. Through an asana practice we create a habit of discipline and the ability to focus.
At Revolution we offer a variety of asana classes that are accessible to both your body and your wallet. With the intention of Yama (limb #1) at the heart of our yoga program, we choose to put the “Golden Rule” into action. Our drop-in class option is always pay-what-you-can.
We trust in the support of our community. We know that when you choose to pay what you can, those able to contribute more will do so and those unable to pay the same will always have access.
Vinyasa by definition is “to place in a special way” so expect a creative and safely sequenced class with a strong focus on connection of breathe to movement. Props and modifications offered for proper alignment and ease in the postures. Schedule will specify heated and non-heated classes.
Yin Yoga invites you to slow down the pace and create space for stillness. The longer held passive postures offer nourishment for your joints, ligaments, tendons and fascia while increasing mobility, circulation and mental focus. Props are used for support to create little effort while holding poses and allowing for joints and fascia to release.
This class is a sweet opportunity to balance the active movement of your vinyasa practice with space for stretching and release.
Restorative yoga uses a handful of supported poses held for several minutes using bolsters, blankets and blocks to tip the balance from “fight or flight” into ease and relaxation. Without the distraction of constant movement, restorative yoga offers immediate effects on heart rate, blood pressure and brain activity. Emphasis on head to toe muscular relaxation are emphasized to achieve a state of grounding and deep rest.
This 30 minute Sit is open to anyone seeking a place to park it and pause. There is no meditation experience needed to participate. Come for the whole thing, only part, or come and go as you please.
The first half of the sit will lead you through the basic principles of developing a meditation practice, techniques to anchor your attention, the labeling of thought patterns and bodily sensations, as well as guidance back to your chosen anchors.
The second half will be a quiet opportunity to put into practice the tools & techniques learned in the first portion of sit with an intention of getting to know ourselves and our internal environment a little better.
