YOGA RETREATS CLASS DESCRIPTIONS FOR 2022

Crystal's Classes

 

Yin

By using and listening to ones breath, students are set up in

poses of discomfort (not pain) allowing muscles to release and

soft tissue to stretch. Meditation through body awareness.

Students are guided through verbal imagery to realize energy

(emotions) that are trapped in the tissues of the body. Undoing

possibly years of muscular imbalances that have resulted in the

deteriorating health in the the following five kosha’s (bodies);

annamaya (physical body) pranayama (breath/life-force body),

manomaya (mental body), vunanamaya (wisdom body);

anandamaya (bliss body).

 

Dragon Warrior (Yang-Yin)

This class is a twist on a sequence organized by a well know Yogi

I admire, Bernie Clark. The first half of class students move

through a range of motions organized to have fun, let out your

inner ninja, and beast (dragon) from within. We breath and move,

taking our bodies through a range of motions designed to flush

muscles, and lubricate joints. While the first half of class works

with the structural components of the body, masculine tissues,

the second had of the class works with the supportive tissue.

The glue that holds our bodies together, our feminine tissues,

facia, ligaments & tendons. Here students are encouraged to

turn inwards as they surrender into restorative yin poses. The

opportunity for those who desire to get a little deeper into poses

will be offered, combination of yoga hands on assists with the

incorporation of Reiki techniques to remove energy blocks.

 

Yoga Nidra is form of guided meditation also known as “yogic

sleep” or “effortless relaxation”. Students normally practice nidra

laying in corpse pose with props to support them. However

modified laying arrangements can be made in advance, to

support the comfort of the student. Students will then be guided

through a meditation. This systematic meditation takes you

through the pancha maya kosha (five layers of self), draws our

attention inwards, and we learn to surf between the states of

wakefulness and sleep. When our body finds its natural state of

equilibrium (homeostasis), you are left with a sense of wholeness.

The breath balances and becomes quiet, unconscious and

conscious aspects of the mind reveal themselves, and we fall into

an innate state of deep, blissful awareness.

Restorative Yoga with Clara 

Restorative yoga is a meditative yoga. You will not find the poses such as the warrior, sun salutations etc that you think of in others yoga practices  restorative yoga is for restoring energy in the body and therefore you are on the floor in stillness much of the time.   Restorative yoga is perfect for any age.

Qigong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one's mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent

Gentle Moon flow & Meditation with Keley-Ann

Meditation— utilizing the specifics of whichever full moon we are engaging with. Techniques included would be visualizing our highest/authentic selves to help guide us, chakra work and integrating our inner child/shadow selves. 

 

Gentle moon flow- I love to do moon salutations in and around the full/new moons.  Channeling the moons gifts depending on where we are at astrology wise- grounding, opening/which chakras etc we are focusing on more. 

 

Journal work/release ceremony.  Using journal prompts and self reflection before and after moving through meditation/movement. As well doing a ritual of burning a piece of paper signifying what you are wanting to release.

Elemental Magic Yoga with Ashley  Breathe with the wind, fire up your body, become grounded with the earth and flow like water with elemental yoga.  Beginner Hatha Yoga
