Course Information
Styles of Hatha (or physical) Yoga come in many variations with the same basic 'seed-postures' as a common link. Differences arise from variations on breath, sequence, motion, alignment and overall form. Phoenix Yoga Studio classes offer several different types of Hatha Yoga with the overall emphasis of integrating a serene mind, harmonious spirit and powerfully healthy body.

Class levels:
Level 1: Develop body awareness, learn basic poses, and discover your natural breath. A great class for stress relief and rejuvenation. Perfect for beginners or anyone wanting a more gentle practice.

Level 1/2: The perfect class for first-timers, though non-beginners get a lot out of these classes as well. Same theory as Level 1 with a baby-step beyond. More detail, mindfulness and deepening of the poses. Easily adaptable to meet your physical and energetic needs.

Level 2: Building on Levels 1 and 2 with more emphasis on strength, stamina, and mindfulness. Great for beginners looking for more options in a pose, and on-going students who want to deepen the practice. Modifications offered to meet your needs. 

Level 2/3: Great for on-going students looking for a more physical class. Introduces more challenging poses, building strength and stamina.

All levels: Practitioners of all levels are welcome and benefit from these classes.

Class Descriptions:
Beginners/Level 1
Recommended for students of all ages and fitness levels. These comprehensive classes are designed to introduce participants to the basic principles and practices of yoga. This provides the beginner with a solid foundation for a safe and suitable yoga practice. Throughout the course participants will learn key yoga poses, basic yoga breath awareness, gentle meditative techniques and a background to yoga practice and philosophy. 

Intermediate/Level 2
Classes are for those with some previous experience who are interested in taking their practice deeper.  This course offers an opportunity to grow your yoga practice, building on the principles of alignment, breath and stability.

Slow Flow Yoga
This fun, flowing class combines postures and sequences to give your body the breath work and movement it needs. With a dynamic flowing sequence of postures linking breath and movement, cultivate awareness while building strength and mobility.  

Yin Yoga 
This is a slow and more passive practice, where we stay in the poses for longer to allow access deep into muscles, ligaments, joints. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. It is suitable for all levels. For those who do very active yoga or sports, this is the perfect compliment to that. And for those who just want a gentle practice, it's also perfect!

Gentle Yoga 
A semi-active practice with a more restorative focus. Perfect for those days you need to slow down, calm your mind and unwind.

Restorative Yoga Workshops
Restorative Yoga is best described as "active rest”.  It is a gentle and effective practice which allows the body to deeply relax. Bolsters, blankets and other props are used to support you in the poses, so that the maximum benefit is achieved with the least amount of effort. Poses are held for longer to allow the release of tension from the body.  The parasympathetic nervous system or relaxation response is activated, making it the the perfect antidote to modern fast paced living. It is ideal for tired and stressed bodies, or to prevent stress accumulating in the body.

Tips for Yoga Beginners

Here are three suggestions for yogis of all levels:
Show up! Whether it's your own practice or a formal class, showing up is 90% of the effort.
Stay present. Remind yourself to be fully present mentally and emotionally as well as physically. 
Listen to your inner voice. Remember that you have nothing to prove to anyone. Do what feels right for you and ask for extra guidance when needed.
