Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga mostly long holding of postures during practice Yin Yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, its goals are awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality
Restorative yoga is based on Iyengar Yoga’s asanas and the use of props Restorative Yoga sessions allow the body to slow down and relax with a small number of asanas. This yoga practice also consists of long holding using more props which help to relax and restore. Mostly used for therapy-based yoga.
Hatha yoga holds each poses through several breaths. Vinyasa yoga, also called Ashtanga yoga, is a fast-paced series of postures or asanas that focuses on the flow between movements, rather than individual poses. We are providing Hatha vinyasa flow, hatha flow classes and guiding students how they can make their own sequence for vinyasa classes.
Sivananda Yoga is the yoga system of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre organization and is based on Swami Sivananda’s teachings to synthesize the principles of the four paths of yoga Sivananda Yoga is a classical and holistic approach to Hatha Yoga that stretches and tones the whole body. This style of yoga has not been modified or watered down. Sivananda training involves frequent relaxation and emphasizes full, yogic breathing also, you will find how this yoga is taught differently than traditional yoga.
Prenatal Yoga. …
A way to maintain a healthy mind and body is prenatal yoga because it focuses on poses for pregnant women, in order to increase strength and flexibility. It also helps pregnant women to develop proper breathing and relaxation techniques for easier and more comfortable labor.
Postnatal Yoga. …
Original sets of yoga practices, many of which are now mainstream, are uniquely suited to help you regain your core strength, your figure, and overall fitness after birth by restoring tone to the deep muscles of the pelvis and lower back. So there’s an introductory class about prenatal/postnatal yoga and how you can be led and make your yoga sequence for such students
A full dedicated class on forward bend working on a particular group of muscles which to work deep to achieve maximum into asana. Forward bends can be very useful for the lower back, as long as we control the relationship between the pelvis and the spine when we attempt them. Using progressive abdominal contraction protects the spine, supports the lower back and strengthens the core.
Our back bending classes only involve working on a certain group of muscles that works during back bending asana for example It is easier to perform a backbend after mastering a bridge pose. A bridge pose helps familiarize the bones and muscles to the positions and movements of a backbend. Also will be adding multiple stretches to make it easier to achieve backbend..
We have 2 dedicated classes for front and side splits To do that, supporting exercises are employed. And since a “Front split” is really two splits (right leg in front and left leg in front) there it takes twice as much time to do the front split, in terms of time spent during the training session. With proper training, you can get both splits quickly and safely.
Our handstand and arm balancing classes involve many kinds of different training and techniques. We also work on posture gradually and provide many variations which will help you to improve your handstand and arm balancing skills There are many variations of handstands, all of which require the performer to possess adequate balance and upper body strength.
We provide one fully dedicated class on the forearm stand pose and scorpion pose.
As it falls under 300hrs TTC we will be mostly working on advance yoga posture based on pick poses having themes in them.
