Open Heart Yoga Center

Restorative Vinyasa with Oliwia, Wednesdays 6- 7:15pm

In each class we will start by warming our bodies up.  Movements will be linked with breath in a slow and steady pace.  The movements will increase mobility, flexibility and strength.  The second part of class will focus on restorative poses.  These poses are cooling and introspective resulting in conscious relaxation and releasing of physical tension.  This class is meant to nurture and care for the whole of ourselves, mind, body and spirit.

Yoga for Stress Relief and Anxiety with Brian

             Tuesdays 6pm

Maybe you're feeling overwhelmed?
Or you're struggling with depression?
Stress is abundant, and seems to be on the rise.
What I love about practicing Yoga is the transformation it brings. Yoga works on many levels, as we are multidimensional Human Beings.
The nervous system is one of the levels we can actively benefit, switching our bodies out of sympathetic (Fight and Flight) response to parasympathetic (Rest and Restore) response. Ahhh!
In yoga practice, through the sequencing of tense and rest/release, we can train our bodies to shift more easily from stress to being at ease in our every day life.

Most yoga styles fall into the general category of Hatha Yoga. Hatha Yoga is a system of yoga which dates back to Yogi Swatmarama, who lived in the 15th century in India. The aim of Hatha Yoga is to create greater balance between body and mind, to free the flow of the life force in the body, and ultimately, to prepare body and mind for more subtle spiritual experiences of meditation.

A Hatha yoga practice includes yoga asanas, yoga postures designed to improve health and remove imbalances, and Pranayama, traditional breathing exercises to help bring greater peace to the mind and the subtle body.
