Curious Students Needed:
4:30 pm: POSTPONED: SLOW FLOW
Slow Flow at Yoga Six is a combination of accessible postures, fluid movement and breath practiced in a warm room. With a slower pace than Power Yoga or Vinyasa, there’s time to explore both alignment and sensation within individual postures during each full-body experience.
Debby thrives teaching this mixed level yoga class available to all humans. Her Slow Flow is a therapeutic dance of moving meditation. After pranayama (breathwork), pratapana (warming up the spine) and Sun Salutations, we will move through a sequence of postures slow enough to refine and strengthen each pose, without feeling rushed into the next move, next breath, or next pose. Slow Flow allows a person to become familiar with his or her body, create a reflective pause, and create the time to go inward.
9:45 am: POSTPONED: ROOT Yoga
ROOT Fundamentals is a signature yoga class of LifePower Yoga at Life Time Frontenac. ROOT's intention - providing a welcoming entry point to LifePower Yoga. It is designed for students new to yoga, students dealing with physical limitations or injuries, and experienced students who are looking to slow their practice down. This class has a therapeutic quality to it by allowing students to feel more, look inward and heal deeply. Life Time opens in Frontenac December 12, 2019.
7:00 pm: POSTPONED: SURRENDER - YIN YOGA
This class will reconvene when Life Time Frontenac reopens.
Learn to Let Go
This slow, meditative yin-yoga practice is designed to mindfully stress your body’s connective tissues as you breathe into the ever-changing sensations that arise in long-held poses.
What to Expect
You’ll be guided through a series of passive postures, mostly done on the floor. Poses are held for up to several minutes, allowing fascia and joints to gradually compress or release. This class is suitable for all experience levels; you’ll learn to utilize your breath and observe your natural tendencies when faced with discomfort.
Why it Works
Physically, long-held yoga poses mobilize and lubricate the joints and can help make these tissues more flexible. Mentally, these poses challenge you to meet arising resistance with mindfulness and self-compassion, teaching you to find the middle ground between craving and aversion.
11:00 am: DEEP STRETCH - RESTORE
Deep Stretch / Restore is an active stretching class that targets primary muscle groups surrounding the hips, hamstrings and upper back. Living in a forward facing, seated world, these areas tend to be tight for everyone. Tight muscles can cause imbalance and pull the body out of alignment. This class begins with warm-up movements to build heat and prepare the muscles for stretching. MANY poses are done on the floor and held for 1-2 minutes. Holding poses for longer periods of time and focusing on breath gives the body time to fully relax and open.
Deep Stretch / Restore is an accessible class that everyone needs – athletes, advanced practitioners, weekend warriors, first time yoga students and everyone in between. Focused stretching allows muscles to relax and lengthen, which puts less strain on the skeletal system and reduces tension throughout the body. Students who take this class regularly report fewer injuries and improved sleep.
Restore is a great class for first time yoga students. Neither experience nor flexibility are required, just an open mind and a willingness to have fun while trying something new.
