This class includes an equal blend of warm ups, postures, breath technique, meditation, and deep relaxation that encourages students to completely embody their practice from head to toe with self-compassion.The practice promotes well-being and encourages students to seek balance both on and off the mat. This class is good for all levels of yoga experience with an emphasis on mind-body awareness, relaxation, meditation and mindfulness. For ages 16 & up.
Each class focuses on a specific body part (legs, shoulders, core) or pose (hip openers,twists, inversions) and uses a variety of asanas (postures) to achieve a deeper understanding of that focus. Participants move slowly into the poses and stay for a few breaths, developing strength and flexibility and using props and modifications to adjust the practice so it is useful for every student. This class is good for all levels of practice, including beginners. For ages 12 and up. Children ages 12-15 must be with an adult during the class.
This class is accessible for all and incorporates effective yoga postures, along with basic breathing techniques, relaxation, and meditation.

Vinyasa links breath and movement promoting harmony of mind, body and spirit.

Most of the time, the studio is heated for this class-stay up-to-date with our Stateline Family YMCA App. Temperatures for heated Vinyasa are between 85-90 degrees.
