Types of Yoga
Said to be more relaxing than sleep, Restorative Yoga is a special modality that focuses on the use of props (such as blankets, bolsters, and blocks) to hold sustained poses for an extended time. You may never even get up on your feet! A very slow paced class with minimal movement, a special treat for the body, and accessible to any person regardless of physical limitations or yoga experience (or lack thereof!).
While most modern yoga classes focus on movement to alternately engage and relax the muscles of the body, Yin Yoga specifically aims to calm and relax the deepest connective tissues of the body, rather than the muscles. Expect a slow paced class, appropriate for all levels.
Geared toward those who may be new to yoga, have suffered injuries, or have a health issue that may be addressed with basic yoga poses. No previous experience necessary. All participants will be guided according to their individual abilities. This class is suitable for developing a yoga practice in a slower, supported way and may include breathwork and meditation.
Through a classical Hatha Yoga practice, students learn to listen to the body's individual needs and support their practice with modifications, focusing on the rhythm of the breath in the asanas (poses). Although this style of yoga involves the most active movement among Helena's yoga specialties, it is quite suitable for all levels.
