CLASSES FILL QUICKLY!
Register soon to avoid disappointment


YOGA 1/BEGINNER
is the introductory class for students who are new to Yoga. This class focuses on poses to stretch and strengthen the legs, back, and shoulders. Emphasis is given to the basic alignment of the standing poses

GENTLE YOGA 1
is designed for those who prefer a class less vigorous than Yoga 1. It includes gentle stretches and breathing as well as simple movements designed to systematically increase the range of motion of every major joint and increase energy. This class is ideal for students with chronic symptoms such as muscle/joint pain, stiffness, weakness, or fatigue.

GENTLE YOGA 2
is a continuation of Gentle Yoga 1, emphasizing the refinement of Gentle Yoga 1 poses and introducing the basic principles of alignment. This class will focus on strengthening the body and adapting poses to protect injured or weak joints. New breathing and relaxation techniques will be introduced as well. This class is more strenuous than Gentle Yoga 1 and students must complete at least two sessions of Gentle Yoga 1 before taking Gentle Yoga 2.

YOGA 1-2
is a continuation class for Yoga 1. The emphasis of this course is on refining and building endurance in Yoga 1 and Yoga 2 standing poses. The basic principles of alignment are presented. This class is suitable for students who have practiced other styles of yoga, but it is not suitable for those who have never studied yoga before.

YOGA 2/ADVANCED BEGINNER
focuses on refining the standing poses and learning basic sitting postures, simple back bending poses, and the shoulder stand using the principles of alignment. It is recommended that students complete both Yoga 1 and Yoga 1-2 before taking Yoga 2.

YOGA 2-3
is a combination class. It begins with Yoga 2 poses and moves gradually into Yoga 3 poses, particularly strengthening poses for the upper body in preparation for the headstand and handstand. The headstand is the major pose learned in this course. Students should complete at least three sessions of Yoga 2 and be comfortable in Chaturanga and Up Dog before taking Yoga 2-3.

YOGA 3/INTERMEDIATE
continues with refinements to poses studied in Yoga 1 and 2 and introduces the forearm balance and full arm balance (handstand). Additional back bend poses are also included. Regular yoga practice outside of class is strongly encouraged. It is recommended that students complete at least three sessions of Level 2 and one session of Level 2-3 before taking Yoga 3.

YOGA 4/ADVANCED
is for students who are capable of holding a free-standing headstand, can do a full arm balance (hand-stand) alone at the wall, and who can push up into Urdhva Dhanurasana (Upward Facing Bow Pose) with straight arms. Regular practice is expected. Permission of the instructor is required.

VINYASA FLOW
is a continuous series of postures, movement flows with breath, and creative Sun Salutions, including
Sun Salutations A, B, and C. This style of practice is heating and vigorous, and builds strength and stamina quickly in the body. Shoulderstand and inversion preparations are practiced. Recommended for HAYC students who have completed at least two sessions of Yoga 2 and who are steady in standing postures, and for those with vinyasa experience from other styles and schools. No serious physical injuries or limitations.


YIN YOGA
is partially based on the Chinese energy system and is designed to bring energetic balance and harmony into our yoga practice and lives. This quiet class focuses on our connective tissues and the protection and health of our joints. Suitable for students who have completed at least one session of Yoga 2.


YOGA FOR OSTEOPOROSIS
Research has shown that yoga can prevent or slow, and in some cases even reverse, the process of bone loss. This course will explore safe yoga postures that will protect and strengthen your spine, hips, and wrists as well as inform you which exercises and movements you should avoid to prevent fractures. All levels welcome.


YOGA SPECTRUM
samples several different styles of yoga. This session will explore Viniyoga, Somatic Yoga, Richard Rosen’s Original Yoga, Chakra Yoga, Waking Energy/Qi Flow, Shadow Yoga and Kum Nye. Practices in Pranayama, the study of the breath, will be included. Appropriate for students Yoga 1-2 and above.

YOGA TECHNIQUES
is a one-hour mixed-level course where we explore a different area of the body or class of pose each week. Open to students who have completed at least one session of Yoga 1-2.

PRENATAL YOGA
is for pregnant women. This class is designed to help you stay relaxed and healthy throughout pregnancy and to prepare you for delivery. It is fun and appropriate for both new and experienced yoga students. Please obtain your doctor’s or midwife’s permission in writing before enrolling.

YOGA FOR KIDS (ages 6-11)
This class is designed to help children build strength and flexibility, concentration and focus, compassion and self-esteem through the playful practice of yoga postures. Kids will have fun as they improve their posture, motor coordination and balance. Yoga poses will help children cope with the conflicts and stress of a very hectic world. A child who learns yoga will develop skills that will last a lifetime.

TEENS YOGA (ages 12-17)
Life can be very busy and stressful for teens these days. This class gives teens the opportunity to participate in a nurturing activity that provides exercise for the total body as well as relaxation techniques that can be used for school, sports, performing arts, sleep improvement, and life skills. Yoga allows teens to find strength and flexibility through practice and patience. Skills developed through yoga will last a lifetime.


COMMUNITY CLASS
A yoga class for everybody! We would like to share the benefits and joys of yoga with everyone in our community. This class is open to all levels. Each class will be taught by a different instructor. No registration is required, just show up. Cost: $5 cash or check.
