Yoga Class Styles
If you are newer to practicing yoga or to B Inspired, you will find this class to be the perfect starting point. You can expect breath work, a focus on alignment and slower transitions from pose to pose.
This class provides a safe, relaxed, non-competitive environment that is welcoming to all. In this class students are encouraged to move slowly and mindfully between poses. Time and respect are given for the varied nature of each student’s body, ability and range of motion. Instructions for modifications and the use of props encouraged enabling students to safely explore each posture and to find their optimal alignments. Transitions between the floor and standing are minimized. This class is appropriate for students of any age who prefer a softer, gentler approach to yoga.
This class combines gentle conscious movements and classical yoga postures to create an environment for internal exploration. Unwinding chronically tensed muscles, freeing the body and the mind; movement is slow and intentional. This practice is appropriate for beginners as well as seasoned practitioners looking to deepen their internal awareness.
Expect an uplifting and invigorating yoga practice that works from the inside out. From beginning to end, this sequence is designed to strengthen your body, improve flexibility all while discovering your purest potential on and off your mat. Inspired by the Baptiste Power Yoga, the power classes taught at B Inspired are meant to awaken, inspire and cause change.
In a Vinyasa (Flow) class, you can expect movement from one pose to the next to increase strength, flexibility and balance. These classes are known for their fluid movement-with a focus on linking breath to movement. No two vinyasa flow classes are the same. Students are challenged to be mindful when they move from pose to pose through both simple and challenging transitions. This class is appropriate for students who would like more movements and transitions. We invite you to always take a resting posture when you need and to ask the instructor for ways to adapt the practice to meet you where you are.
Restorative yoga focuses on floor poses for an extended length of time. Using props to fully support the body to encourage the muscles to let go. This results in releasing muscular tension and creating more space in the body and mind. This relaxing practice is an excellent opportunity to disconnect from the frenetic activity of daily life. It offers a welcome respite among the turbulence that often surrounds us. Moving slowly through the poses allows you to explore your mind and body. The slower pace and deep breathing in a restorative class engages the parasympathetic nervous system. The overall calming effect on the nervous system sets a deeply relaxing tone for the class. All levels welcome.
Yin yoga is an invitation to slow down and welcome ease and compassion into our lives. This is a relatively passive practice, done mainly on the floor that focuses on the denser connective tissues (myofascia) of the body. Working the body in this way greatly benefits the health of the joints by creating and maintaining flexibility and mobility. Poses are typically held for 2-5 minutes. In addition to the physical benefits, Yin Yoga teaches how to observe the body’s movement of energy, changes in sensations, thought patterns and emotions. No matter your level of experience with yoga, a Yin practice is an opportunity to settle into and observe whatever may arise in the body and mind.
