amrita yoga The amrita style of yoga is a form of vinyasa yoga with influences from Ayurveda, physical therapy, neuroscience, yoga philosophy and psychology, pranayama, and mindfulness. The amrita yoga style emphasizes the bio-mechanics of alignment, anatomy, kinesiology, and rehabilitative processes.
amrita yoga is taught in alignment with the rhythms of nature. Ayurveda teaches that our yoga practice should be in harmony with the changing of the seasons as well as the time of day (and your life cycle). We teach to support these natural cycles.
amrita yoga surya These dynamic classes focus on practices that energize, cleanse, promote vitality, build stamina, strength, and resilience. We include sun salutations, vinyasa (vigorous at times), standing poses, arm balances, backbends, and inversions. Students are guided in seasonally-appropriate pranayama practices. Classes will include mindfulness tools and meditation.
amrita yoga chandra This class is great for students who are new to yoga, as well as students who want to reconnect with the basics. In class, we explore beginning poses, alignment principles, and building awareness. The class pace is more reflective. Mindfulness and breathing are woven throughout the practice. Self-study and self-reflection prompts are offered.
amrita yoga surya: Level 2-3 For intermediate to advanced students. Asana will include sun salutations, vinyasa, standing poses, independent inversions, arm balances, intermediate backbends, and seated poses that prepare students for meditation. Two years of consistent asana practice recommended.
amrita yoga chandra: hatha flow This evening vinyasa practice incorporates asana and mindfulness tools, into a gently-paced, reflective, fluid hatha yoga class. Basic yoga postures and gentle stretching are balanced throughout a flowing sequence that seeks to move energy (prana) throughout the body; releasing areas of residual stagnation and tension, while preparing both mind and body for a restful nights sleep. Chandra means moon: it is the reflective aspect of our nature.
amrita yoga chandra: evening vinyasa restorative This evening practice prepares your mind and body for rest through a blend of fluid, dynamic movement and restorative postures. We begin with an all-levels, slower-paced vinyasa flow class to move prana - life-force and breath - through your body; removing stagnation and increasing vitality. We wind down our practice with a blend of restorative postures, aimed at cultivating a greater sense of mind/body ease and relaxation.
