Letting go of judgment, expectations, and competition, we provide the ultimate outlet for you to re-center, re-focus, and rejuvenate your life. With plenty of options for the new Yogi to the experienced practitioner, we have a full range of programs to give you the push you’re looking for to heat up your strength training or the gentle stretch you need to recover effectively and improve your strength, mobility, and mental clarity.
Not sure which one to try first? If you’re new to Mind & Body classes, start with Yoga Basics, Gentle Yoga, Chair Yoga, or Senior Yoga. After you feel comfortable in these formats, you may find one you love to return to week after week, or perhaps you’ll progress into Centergy®, Vinyasa Yoga, or Yoga for Athletic Performance. Power Yoga should be reserved for experienced Yoga students who are actively engaged in their own practice.
Please check our schedules online and on our AFF app for a complete listing of classes and descriptions, but here are a few you might like to try…
Gentle Yoga – Enjoy the relaxing benefits of Yoga while increasing strength, flexibility, and balance with an unhurried approach. Less vigorous than other Yoga workouts, the poses are generally held no longer than 3-5 breaths. Great for Beginners, Seniors, Pregnant or Post Partum women, or anyone with physical limitations. A Yoga mat is required and can be provided. All fitness levels. Intensity: low. Tempo: slow. This practice is great if you’re new to yoga, want to move at a slower pace, or simply want to maximize the Zen factor, get a good stretch, but not too sweaty. Please note: Senior Yoga is also Gentle Yoga, just a bit more so. This class is family friendly.
Power Yoga – Build heat while developing strength, flexibility, and balance through a vigorous Vinyasa style in an energizing workout. A Yoga mat is required and can be provided. Intermediate to advanced levels.
Senior Yoga – Gentle stretches, breathing techniques, and flowing movements aimed to improve strength, flexibility, balance, and overall well-being of the mature exerciser or special populations. Props (blocks, straps, blankets, etc.) can be used to complement the practice. Stretch and relax as you enjoy the present moment. All fitness levels.
Vinyasa Yoga – Develop strength, flexibility, and balance while reducing stress through this flowing and moderately cardiovascular style of Yoga aligned with breath. Poses range from relaxing stretches to challenging postures and are held for 1-5 breaths. Modifications will be made for beginners and options offered for more advanced students. A Yoga mat is required and can be provided. Intensity: moderate. Tempo: moderate to fast. This practice is great if you want to move and sweat while you get your Zen on. All fitness levels.
Yoga for Athletic Performance – Highly recommended as a method for cross-training to enhance athletic performance. Avoid injuries by applying functional fitness for uniform strength and endurance while flowing through poses that are held for 1-5 breaths. Your balance and stride will improve with fun and challenging balance sequences prior to ending with gentle poses that are held 1-5 minutes to improve flexibility and range of motion. Athletes of all fitness levels will also benefit from this approach to concentration and breath awareness, which relieves stress and improves mental focus – the intangibles that benefit athletes at any level. Tempo: class begins at a moderate to fast pace, and then slows down for strength and flexibility. All fitness levels.
