hOMe Collective Yoga Class Descriptions

Basics/Gentle Yoga
All Levels

Gentle Yoga is a wonderful way to begin your yoga practice! We move slowly and specifically, introducing and developing standing, seated, and supine poses. Gentle classes are soothing and balancing, allowing you to calm the mind, center the breath, and access openness in the body. This class is encouraged for yoga students at all levels, newcomers or long-time yogis, as a welcoming and refreshing way to encourage your practice.

Chakra Core Flow

Intermediate/Advanced

Do you want to do more than just practice yoga poses? Are you curious about chakra energy and how to use it in your life? In this Chakra Core class, Kelli Gould will lead you through a dynamic, fun, Flow class where you will learn about a different Chakra each week. You’ll discover what energy the Chakra represents and how to align that energy and use it in your every day life. In this class, you will train your entire core system…not just the abdominals! This is a challenging but forgiving and fun class where laughter is
the “Core” ingredient!

Gentle Yoga + Yoga Nidra

All Levels

Breathe, relax, and reset. Vanessa will guide you through gentle movements before guiding you through a sleep based, yoga nidra meditation.

Gentle Vinyasa

All Levels

Gentle Vinyasa is a great way to learn the basics of a Vinyasa class with slower sun salutations and all levels peak poses. We emphasize the incredibly important process of linking the breath with the movements, and learn how to align and strengthen in many of the basic poses. Teachers offer variations and modifications so that students at all levels can find joy & safety in their practice.

Roll & Restore Yoga

All Levels

This 75 minute class combines ball rolling and restorative yoga to create an experience of relaxation, balance, and nourishment. Ball rolling is used to release tension and stress held in connective tissues and prepares the body for the stillness of the restorative practice. Restorative postures are held for 5-10 minutes and are fully supported using various props. The long holds of this practice activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for rest and digest functions of the body, immunity, and cellular repair. This class is open to all bodies, especially those experiencing stress, depression, anxiety, and fatigue or those who just need a little self care.

Somatic Movement Class

All Levels

While not technically yoga, Hanna Somatics and Yoga share a common goal of unifying mind with body through movement and awareness.  Hanna Somatics was developed by Thomas Hanna who realized that the disease and dysfunction typically thought of as aging was actually caused by chronic stress and injury. Somatic Movement is designed to release chronic muscular tension and help people fully recover from old injuries. Simply put, in this class, functional, whole person movements are done slowly and mindfully so that the person learns to get better at moving in their body as they age.

Students of these classes can expect to:
-Learn how to slowly and safely explore movement potentials in their body.
-Connect, integrate and balance areas of tension with areas of comfort
-Discover how the different parts of the body work together as one whole system
-Unwind unconscious patterns of physical and emotional holding
-Fulling recover from the physical effects of past injuries and trauma
-Move better, feel better, and live better

Steady Vinyasa/Restorative

All Levels

This gentle yet invigorating yoga practice is intended to reconnect the practitioner with a deeply felt experience of vitality and balance. The flowing movements of Vinyasa are warming and activating; while the restful, supported postures of Restorative are soothing and calming. Each practice begins with ball rolling to open and warm the neck, shoulders, back and hips. Thoughtful breath work is incorporated throughout to nourish healthy nervous system function and keep the mind gently focused.

Vinyasa
