Programs

Types of Yoga Classes

Yoga for Special Conditions classes consist of easy warm-ups and poses that are introduced at a slower pace than Level 1. This class is ideal for people with chronic symptoms such as illness, muscle and joint pain, fatigue, seniors, and people wanting to reclaim comfort and vitality. It is also appropriate for pregnancy and postpartum. This is also in Playshop format as Yoga for The Health Of It.

Level 1 – Foundations classes introduce students to breath awareness, as well as the basic principles of optimal body alignment.  We come to the practice with great acceptance of where each of us are starting from, always moving toward more comfort, never toward pain. All classes are meant to be interactive with dialogue and communication of questions is highly encourged. Emphasis is on increasing the participants awareness and understanding of their own body, creating a balance of strength and flexibility, and moving toward more comfort and balance. We are also increasing our focus and bringing the mind more present to deepen our ability to be aware. Relaxation techniques are always included, as we all need to release stress from our body and our mind.

Mixed Level – Yoga for Everybody classes are open to all students and explores poses through basic principles that apply to those completely new to yoga, as well as those who have done some yoga previously, yet still want to participate at a basic level. Variations and adaptations are always offered to give more or less challenge when are needed.

Level 2 classes focus on refining details in the poses as well as building more strength and endurance with slightly more challenging poses and more intricate versions of the poses. Sun Salutation and some other simple posture flows are included. Completing a Level 1 session is helpful, but not necessary if one has good body awareness and is relatively pain free.

Level 3 classes expand the repertoire of poses and includes some deeper back bends and preparation for inverted poses, as well as the inverted poses. Completing a Level 2 class would be helpful and ideally having detailed knowledge of one’s own body, without excessive limitations.

Prenatal yoga can help to create more comfort and ease aches and pains, empower you to cope better with labor and give you time to relax and restore yourself. The yoga poses are adapted to accommodate where participants are in their pregnancy. Approval from your doctor is recommended, especially for first trimester pregnancies. Yoga for Special Conditions classes can accommodate pregnant women, as can Level 1 or Mixed Level.

Postpartum yoga can help you nurture and restore your body, recover your strength and muscle tone. Participants should be at least 3 weeks postpartum (6 weeks if they’ve had a caesarean) and have their physicians permission to resume exercise. Yoga for Special Conditions classes can accommodate women who are newly postpartum.

Yoga Class Schedule

Thank you for visiting the class schedule page for Flowering Heart Yoga. As you move through the seasons, a yoga practice can complement the rhythms of each season enabling you to flow through the year more gracefully. Through these changes, a yoga practice can allow you to balance activity and rest, effort and ease, strength and flexibility. By tending to yourself you will access more energy so you can extend yourself out to others and to the world. With all the things we must do in life, yoga can be a way to have time for self focus and self care planned into each week to create balance in your life.

Below you’ll find the current and upcoming schedule of Classes and Playshops. As you peruse the offerings, I hope you’ll find the level of Class or Playshop at a time and location that is convenient for you. I also offer specially scheduled Classes and Playshops for groups as well as individual lessons upon request. I am always open to suggestions so more people can enjoy the benefits of yoga, so please let me know what you need.

Playshops

Instead of calling these classes “workshops”, I like the idea of calling them “playshops.” Playshops are a wonderful way to expand your experience of yoga. Instead of learning the hard way, these extended learning sessions make yoga accessible, relevant to your everyday life, and FUN. They are also a way to practice good self care.

Treat Yourself to a Retreat

 

People who fall in love with yoga and the wonderful blessings it brings to their lives often want to immerse themselves deeper into a yoga practice. Many people, myself included, also enjoy exploring new places and having new adventures. For many, travel and yoga is the best of both worlds. It allows one to travel both outward and inward, expanding your experience of yourself and the world around you. To this end, I love to share travel and retreat with like minded people and periodically offer the opportunity to do this. Below you will find the upcoming programs that are on the calendar. In addition, I am open to your input on places you would like to go. Past yoga adventures (which I would happily entertain again) have been swimming with wild dolphin in the Bahamas and exploring the beaches and Mayan ruins in the Mayan Riviera in Mexico. Future trips I would love to offer are: Costa Rica, Ecuador, Brazil, Italy, England, Greece, India, Hawaii, St. John USVI and lots of other places that have an abundance of nature and culture.

Please be in touch with questions or suggestions so we can live our dreams.
