FLEXIBILITY & STRESS
This class is designed to reduce chronic pain and stress carried in the hips, spine, and shoulders and will focus on developing flexibility in these areas while integrating restorative practices to reduce stress. Building on yoga poses that reduce fatigue, sooth the adrenals and adjust the cortisol hormone, students will practice simple inversions and backbends for beginners. Students will experience increased flexibility over time and learn mindfulness techniques to reduce stress.
Private sessions will focus on increasing flexibility and strength in the spine, as well as strengthening core muscles and grip strength. In addition, students who are interested in the health benefits of inversions, but find them difficult to attain, will find that the trapeze is the best yoga prop! Inversions are fun, full of health benefits, and empowering. Give the trapeze a try!
Progressive Vinyasa Yoga is an energetic form of yoga where students fluidly move from one pose to the next, while connecting their breathing to their movements. It incorporates strength, flexibility, balance, cardio and physical and mental stamina in one session. Progressive Vinyasa yoga incorporates regular sequences that become familiar to students, but incorporates variations to modify, intensify, or challenge the body by altering the pace or duration of poses, and the frequency that they are repeated.
I have been taking yoga classes with Julie for about 3 years now. When I started I could barely do one chaturanga correctly and now I find myself doing 16-20 per class, due to her teaching style. My strength and stamina have improved immensely, and my focus on the mat has transported into my daily workload as well. I have gained confidence in myself both physically and mentally to push myself through any challenges that come my way. I highly recommend taking classes with Julie. ~ Michelle
