class descriptions

Beginner Yoga

Introduces basics of body awareness, breathing and movement.  Students will practice yoga in a flow of postures linked together by their breathing, and clear, step-by-step instructions.

Advanced Yoga

Advanced yoga is not necessarily about one's ability to do increasingly complex and hard poses, but more about advanced familiarity with the flows during a yoga session. Our instructor will still guide you through each step, and based on your level, will be able to provide you with a modification of a pose as needed. 

Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa is the synchronization of breath and movement. It is a method where one pose flows into another smoothly, through the breath. 

Our vinyasa yoga classes are great for beginners and experienced students alike. Experienced students learn to slow down their practices focusing deeply on their breathwork and other healing aspects of yoga. 

Hatha Yoga

Ha means sun (willful, forceful). Tha means moon (calm, cool).

Hatha is a practice of physical yoga postures creating balance and uniting opposites. 

This practice is designed to align and calm the body and mind. 

Restorative Yoga

This type of yoga is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretches.  This unique experience enables the muscles to relax deeply because your body is supported by different yoga props.  This class is particularly helpful for casual or serious athletes, to help with recovery and reduction of injury risk.

Iyengar-inspired Yoga

Named after BKS Iyengar, this class offers a type of yoga that focuses on detail, precision and alignment. It also aims to inspire you to the notion that no matter what your challenges are, or your age, that there are no limitations to what yoga can do for you.

BENEFITS OF YOGA

Get your mind and body fit with ESCAPE yoga

A better body image

Focusing inward during yoga practice  helps you be more satisfied with your body and less critical of it

Mindful eating and a boost to weight loss and maintenance

Being more aware of your body carries over to mealtimes as you savor each bite or sip and notice how food tastes, smells, and feels in your mouth.  Mindfulness through yoga can make you more sensitive to cues of hunger and fullness, which helps you develop a  more positive relationship with food. 

Overall fitness

Practicing yoga a couple of times a week increases muscle strength and flexibility, boosts endurance, and tunes up your heart, lungs and blood vessels.

Cardiovascular benefits

Yoga can help lower blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol, all of which are good for your heart and blood vessels.

Yoga is a great way to improve an athlete's balance, agility, endurance, core strength and overall strength.

Football players, runners, basketball players, climbers and athletes of all sports can enjoy the loosening of muscles, enhanced flexibility and increased range of motion through yoga.

Most importantly, yoga reduces an athlete's risk of injury.  Most athletes will experience shin splints, plantar fasciitis,  Achilles tendonitis (inflation or stiffness of the tendon), muscle pull or strain at one point during training or competition. Yoga will minimize the chances of these kinds of trauma in the body.
