Sun Spirit Yoga

A Peek Into Our Classes

We offer Vinyasa Flow and Gentle Stretching yoga classes at Heritage Todd Creek. Classes are open to the public. Our classes are taught at a beginner's level, but modifications are cued for more advanced moves when you are ready to take your practice to the next level.

 

Vinyasa Flow Yoga is all about the flow of breath to movement. For each inhale and exhale, we move into a new pose. Vinyasa can get aerobic at times, and often incorporates a focused core segment, so if you are looking for a good workout in addition to practicing the yoga asanas (postures) this is the class for you!

 

Gentle Stretching Yoga allows us time to move into the asanas slowly, first concentrating on slow, relaxing stretches, and breathing techniques. This type of flow brings grace, muscle tone, and focus to your practice. We move through yoga postures but at a slower rate that is a great way to stretch and tone your muscles.


Gentle/Vinyasa Yoga is the best of both worlds! We begin our practice with 30 minutes of gentle stretching. The remainder of our practice involves moving into slow and steady vinyasa flows which can be modified to your own desired intensity level.

 

Yoga is for every age and fitness level because it can be modified to accommodate what YOUR body needs. Whether you are 5 or 105, you can benefit from the practice of yoga.
