Ashley Cupp instructs the following:
This class is perfect for the beginning yoga student with no experience or for those looking to revisit a slower paced class focusing on proper alignment. Our experienced teachers will guide you safely through transitions and the fundamentals of basic yoga poses to help create a solid foundation for your practice. We will teach you how to breath mindfully to reduce stress levels, to create better body awareness for a healthier body, and help you to enhance your self-confidence in each pose. You are always encouraged you to go at your own pace.
Level: 0-1 (beginner)
This class focuses on gentle poses and transitions, emphasizing breath to reduce stress and tension, and fundamental principles of alignment. Perfect for beginners, people with chronic pain conditions, and for the experienced yogi looking to complement a strong practice with a deeper release and subtle alignment.
Level: All Levels (beginner friendly)
Duration: 60 minutes
This quiet, meditative practice encourages mindful non-judgmental awareness of the present moment by holding long passive stretches (3-10 minutes). Through deep relaxation, we release deeply held tension targeting the hips, pelvis and lower back working safely into the connective tissues and ligaments making them stronger and more pliant. Yin yoga increases the body’s energy distribution by cleansing the energy channels that run through the body’s connective tissue, creating an effect similar to that of acupuncture.
