We currently have 17 classes on the schedule to choose from at Yoga Hohm,
all with very specifically designated levels of intensity so you know what
Classes are listed in order from least to most physical work.
Our teachers adhere to a strict code of maintaining the level of intensity as clearly described here.
Gentle - Great for all students of any level, and especially beneficial for those who are healing from an injury and/or feeling overwhelmed. Included are guided breath control practices, fundamental poses that may include seated, standing and/or supine asanas. Many options for modifications will be explained as well as uses for props.
All classes are rounded out with a nice long savasana to reset the body and mind.
Yin Yoga is based on the Taoist concepts of yin and yang, opposite and
complementary principles in nature. Yin emphasizes holding yoga postures, or
asanas, for longer periods of time, usually several minutes or more. This
has a loosening effect on the deeper connective tissues- tendons, fascia,
and ligaments that can aid in increasing circulation in the joints and
improving flexibility. Some postures will be supported with props similar to
Restorative Yoga. However, many poses will not be supported and will require
some strength; one distinguishing feature of Yin Yoga that separates it from
other styles of yoga in which poses are held for long periods of time.
Level 1 Beginner - Students who are new or fairly new to yoga will benefit from learning fundamental poses in sequences that move fluidly from one pose to another. Classes will begin with guided breath practice, then move on to basic warm up postures including sun salutations, paying special attention to learning the correct sequence and modifications when needed, while teaching the body to move with breath. Use of props will be explained and modifications for injuries and different body types will be demonstrated. Learn basic seated, standing and reclined postures and the correct way to align the muscles and joints in each pose. There will be some introduction to Sanskrit names of poses, and some introduction to yoga philosophy may be thrown in the mix from time to time.
Level 1-2 Intermediate - a more challenging practice than level 1. Students will be encouraged to go beyond the basics and learn more advanced postures. Class will include more flow and Sanskrit names for poses will be used more often than in a level 1. Classes may include introductions to more challenging poses such as inversions, arm balances, advanced back bends, shoulder stands and deeper twists. Classes will move in the order of first breath control practice, followed by more rounds of sun salutation warm ups than level 1, basic and advanced standing poses designed to prepare the body for the class's peak pose, basic and advanced seated cool downs, most often a shoulder stand sequence and finally a long, relaxing savasana. Yoga philosophy mentioned in recent level 1 classes will be expounded on.
Level 2 Advanced - a vigorous practice ideal for students who wish to deepen their practice. level 2 advanced classes offer a stronger challenge to students have developed an understanding of the basics. Sequences will link breath with movement in order to build up heat and strength, burning out physical and mental impurities, toning muscles and improving cardiovascular health. Students will have the opportunity to explore more challenging inversions, backbends, arm balances and poses that require greater flexibility.
