This new, team taught class will regularly incorporate circuit training, interval work, as well as the use of weights and bands to keep things new and challenging for participants. This fun, fast-paced class does not require previous experience with group fitness workouts just a willingness to try something new in a friendly and supportive environment.
Nurture and energize the entire self through the fusion of dynamic poses, breath work and deep relaxation. The practice of yoga encourages greater flexibility, strength, balance, self-awareness and tranquility. Participants of all levels are welcome to attend. Feel free to bring your own mat, if you wish, or use a mat provided by SIRA. Here is a description of the yoga that SIRA offers this semester:
Hatha Slow Flow – This slow and meditative breath guided practice gives each individual time to explore and refine each pose. The pace of the class places emphasis on safe alignment. Every body is unique therefore finding a variation of each pose that best fits your body is a way of customizing our own practice. This is yoga for all, including newer students who need time to learn and explore, as well as, for seasoned yoga practitioners looking to deepen their awareness by slowing down.
