WY’EAST STUDIO Class Descriptions

*Good for beginners

Yoga Classes

Vinyasa Flow: Cultivate strength and flexibility while building heat and body awareness. Vinyasa Yoga is cleansing and challenging, yet meditative. Our Vinyasa teachers give verbal alignment cues and/or gentle hands-on assists throughout. Expect: Full body warm up, standing poses, twisting, Core stabilization, heart openers, optional inversions and a grounding savasana.

*Restorative Yoga: This slow, quiet and warm class is all about relaxing into your body and mind. In restorative yoga, you will hold gentle poses for extended periods of time. Restorative yoga allows you to work with the breath and create more space in the body. Expect: Comfort, a lot of props to be used, seated / supine / prone postures.

*Yin Yoga: Yin Yoga targets connective tissue of the body. Postures are held for longer periods of time, usually four and a half minutes,  facilitating deeper opening of the whole body. The class will incorporate space for meditation throughout the practice. Expect: Mild discomfort, deep opening of the spine, shoulders, hips and pelvis.

*Flow + Restore: Cultivate strength and flexibility while building body awareness. This class begins with gentle body opening postures and slowly builds into a vinyasa flow. About halfway through class, you will begin to slow things down as you move into a restorative practice. Think of the perfect fusion of vinyasa yoga and restorative yoga. Expect: Perfect combination of Vinyasa + Restorative.  

*Yoga for climbers: All yoga classes on this schedule are great for climbers, however in this class, you will specifically target areas of the body overworked on the wall. Expect: Joint work, hip openers, balance work, shoulder and chest work, mindful movement.
