Facillitated Sleeping Yoga
Restorative yoga focuses on using props (especially blankets!) to encourage the parasympathetic,"Rest and Digest" processes of the body. The practice helps you redirect your energy from the outside world to the internal processes of healing and nourishment.
Strength & Healing
Poses are often held for a few breaths, giving students time to understand their alignment within the pose, find their breath, and build comfort and strength. Hatha can challenge individuals, help develop strength and endurance, and provide a safe space to develop stress management skills.
Finding Pure Movement
Comprised of simple movements in different, comfortable positions, ease is encouraged over perfection. Attention to the spine, shoulders, and hips first trains "pure" movement: letting go of holding patterns in the body and stimulating a more balanced movement pattern. This work is very specific to each individual, but the basics are often included in Sheila's scheduled classes.
This is an excellent choice and addition to private yoga sessions.
Acro Yoga is a dynamic, active form of communal yoga that encourages communication, curiosity, and playfulness. It is at least a 3-person endeavor, with a base, flyer, and spotter to keep everyone safe. Sheila's Acro classes keeps the yoga in the mix, considering breath, connection, exploration, and the continued practice of learned skills. This is available for private sessions, please contact us for more information!
Experiencing More You
Kundalini is a powerful practice that doesn't look a thing like the yoga that graces the supermarket shelves. Meditative actions, mudra, and use of vocalization focus the mind. Actions are repeated at a pace appropriate for you, for 30 seconds to a few minutes. That means that when you're ready, this can become an incredibly aerobic practice!
It has a powerful effect on the endocrine system, improving lymph drainage, hormonal balance, and mood. As Yogi Bhajan says, "The process of growth through Kundalini Yoga is a natural unfolding of your own nature."
