Yoga Styles and class descriptions
Hatha refers to any style of yoga that involves poses or asanas. We offer a wide range of classes to suit individual needs and goals. Each class is designed to be unique and fresh. Some classes are more challenging and geared to students with some yoga experience . Other classes focus on breathwork, meditation and postures designed to stretch and strengthen specific areas of the body.
Gentle Hatha/ Aerial Mix
This style of yoga uses silks to enhance yoga. The silks support your body in ways that a floor can not. It is a wonderfully relaxing environment in which to meditate and is supportive for safely stretching and performing asana practice. This type of yoga is new to the Haldimand area. Please wear tshirts with sleeves that cover the armpits and yoga pants that are no shorter then the knees. The yoga silks can cause friction between the silks and bare skin. All jewelry should be removed to prevent it getting caught up in the silks.
Meditation, Breathing, Shatkarma
Budokan Yoga Style
In warmer weather we make use of our outdoor yoga deck surrounded by the beautiful scenary that nature has provided.
In the evenings we access the outdoor pavilion bathed by the light and the warmth from our stone fireplace.
All are weather dependent.
This style of Kundalini yoga originated in India . Kundalini yoga is a style of yoga that uses our breath, movement , mantras and mudras in class. It is a more spiritual type of yoga not focused on any religion but on whatever your higher power or belief sytem is. The poses are not the same as in a regular hatha class. We focus on the spine as it connects our nervous system and endocrine system. This style of yoga can be energizing, heating yet calming with breathing specific exercises to maintain focus and generate heat and movement of energy. It is about delving a bit deeper into our selves and truly connecting body, mind and spirit."
