Friday June 24th 7-9pm

"Vin-Yin"  (2 HOURS)   

Experience the Yin/Yang factor in this perfectly balanced 2 hour practice. A one hour Vinyasa Flow practice that builds heat and gets prana/energy flowing through the body, followed by a 1 hour Yin practice, focusing on the connective tissue and fascia. Vin Yin allows us to dive deep into unexplored layers of tension and patterns of holding in the body.  Float off your mat feeling balanced and blissed out! / All Levels Welcome.


Saturday June 25th 10am-12pm

“Yoga Playground” Vinyasa Flow Practice with Inversions (2HOURS)

LILA! Let’s PLAY...Approaching our yoga practice with a childlike sense of exploration and wonder, helps us face our fears from of a place of discovery. Release the grip that causes us to remain stagnant in our practice and life. Turn upside down and all around with back bends, headstands, handstands and creative variations in a mindful and approachable way, that will leave you feeling empowered and inspired. Can you hear the music? / ALL LEVELS WELCOME.

 


Saturday June 25th 2-4pm

"YIN on the Rocks!"  (2 Hours)

A 2 Hour Deep Yin Practice, artistically woven and challenging. We will explore some non-traditional Yin poses and options for the yogi who might want to go a little deeper. / All Levels Welcome. What is Yin? Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. While initially this style of yoga can seem quite boring, passive, or soft, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from one to twenty minutes! Yin and yang tissues respond quite differently to being exercised. You need to experience this to really know what Yin Yoga is all about. After you have experienced it, even just once, you will realize that you have been doing only half of the asana practice. 


Sunday June 26th 10am-12pm

"Hot, Hip & Holy!"  (2HOURS)

 

Hot: Heated (Warm) Room, Let's Sweat!
Hip: Rockin Music! (One of Tymi's famous Playlists)
Holy: Holy Vinyasa Sequencing!

This challenging and creatively sequenced specialty class is for the yogi who desires more than what the standard yoga class offers. Burn away all the obstacles that clutter the mind and fog the mirror of the soul. Wring out the toxic emotions that build up and stagnate within the body. It has been our direct experience that an intense asana practice and deep stretching/opening poses will bring about these changes. Practitioner should have a good working knowledge of backbends, headstands and inversions.
