Salute the arrival of Spring with a traditional, seasonal practice of 108 sun salutations. The number 108 is auspicious in Yogic tradition: there are 108 beads on a mala prayer garland, 108 sacred sites in India, and the distance between the sun and the earth is 108 times the sun's diameter. Kim Allcock will lead our practice through all 108 Sun Saluations, with guided meditation and intention setting. Join the group, do as many as you can, and feel the energy rise as we practice The Great 108!
This special event is donation based for all in the community. Donations will benefit Sierra Nevada Journeys!
All Levels Vinyasa
These classes are carefully sequenced and well-rounded practices that invite people with any level of experience. We explore a variety of postures and offer a dynamic flow of linking movement and breath. These classes are designed to build endurance, improve mental focus, and increase strength and flexibility. We encourage you to work at your level, offering pose variations to challenge all levels of yoga experience from beginner to advanced.
This 60-minute class has roots in Ashtanga Yoga with new and creative sequencing. The class begins moving quickly through traditional Sun Salutations linking breath to movement. We move through sometimes challenging sequences and poses, while promoting safe alignment. These classes often incorporate arm balances and/or inversions while still offering different levels to accommodate everyone. Some previous yoga experience is encouraged, however not necessary. Be ready to work in this class!
Yin / Restorative
A gentle and relaxing form of yoga, Yin aims to gently stretch and rehabilitate connective tissues and muscles, while promoting flexibility and a deep release of worked muscles. This quiet, meditative practice is a perfect complement to other dynamic forms of yoga and/or climbing. Props are often used to help relax and support the body in poses allowing for longer hold times resulting in an experience of deeper stretch. This practice encourages introspection and relaxation and is suitable for all levels.
Levels 2/3 Vinyasa
This 75-minute class strengthens and balances the body as you move through more challenging poses. Similar to Power Hour, this Level 2 will often incorporate arm balances and/or inversions and you begin to build strength and focus through class. Some previous yoga experience is helpful, however not necessary. Anyone is encouraged to join class, but come prepared to work!
