Yin Yoga at Spectra Yoga

mind1 Yin Yoga

Level: All levels  |  Temperature: Room Temperature

Challenging in a different way, Yin Yoga consists of longer held, mostly seated or lying postures that passively stretch connective tissue and muscles in order to unblock held energy and release physical tightness. Accompanied by relaxing music and guided instruction to help still and quiet the mind, yin yoga will help students gain greater flexibility and mobility, as well as a new sense of calm and balance that carries throughout the day. Yin Yoga is a great way to balance the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga. Yin is practiced in a cool room and appropriate for all levels (including prenatal).


Hot Yoga Series 1 at Spectra Yoga

mind1 Hot Yoga Series 1

Level: All Levels  |  Temperature: 95 degrees F

Hot Yoga 1 is a class consisting of a set sequence of breathing exercises and asanas practiced in the same order each class. This sequence is designed to systematically open up the muscles, joints, and stimulate the internal organs. Each pose is held for an extended amount of time allowing students to correct their alignment and deepen into the pose with consistent practice. One of the main benefits from this style is the increased awareness and concentration developed from practicing yoga in a heated environment. Synergy is the key to creating community in this class. All of the students are encouraged to move together as one in this class under the direction of the teacher. Moving into, staying in the asana, and releasing out of poses at the same time will greatly promote the uniting energy of this particular class. The intense heat is also critical in speeding up the flexibility in muscles and joints. Additionally, the copious sweating is desired to open up pores in the skin and achieve detoxification from inside and out. Due to the high heat, hydration before class will help students succeed.


Hot Yoga Series 2 at Spectra Yoga

mind3 Hot Yoga Series 2

Level: Intermediate  |  Temperature: 95 degrees F

Hot Yoga 2 is a pumped up version of Hot Yoga 1. Drawing from the asanas and uniting philosophy present in the Hot Yoga 1 class, Hot Yoga 2 is sequenced in a more flowing and creative manner to further challenge the students physically and mentally. The major differences between the Hot 1 and 2 is that the asanas are held longer in Hot 1 and the class moves at a quicker pace in the Hot 2. There are a few added sections in this class to increase core strength and upper body endurance. Hot Yoga 2 is a fun, vitalizing, and grounding class designed for intermediate students.

soul1_copy Meditation

Level: All levels  |  Temperature: Room Temperature

The physical practice of yoga is intended to strengthen and prepare our bodies to sit in meditation. It is through this practice that we attain the full mind/body/spirit alignment. Through meditation, one learns how to effortlessly enter a state of peace, quiet, stillness, and self-discovery. One of the most common misconceptions of meditation is that "it's too hard to quiet my mind!" and it is thus never given a chance. Paradoxically, meditating and quieting the mind is the easiest thing to "do" because it actually requires doing nothing. Meditation is highly a necessary practice to treat ailments of the mind such as depression, anxiety, lack of fulfillment, etc.. It is practiced in a cool room and is highly recommended for all levels.
