ASHTANGA YOGA

In this dynamic class you will practice the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga. As the class is guided through the Primary Series, you will advance through the sequence at a pace that suits the physical, energetic & subtle development of your practice. Specific instructions will be provided individually by Alana in certain postures addressing the needs of the student. This class is open to all levels focusing on instruction while linking breath with movement.

Primary Series, also known as Yoga Chikitsa, means Yoga Therapy - a program that when done regularly cures your ailments & purifies the physical body, lengthening the back body & strengthening the front body to prepare for deeper yogic practice - both physical & meditative.

YIN YOGA

We will apply basic breathing & awareness techniques as we move through Yin postures in a slow & steady pace at the direction of the Yoga Therapist, holding passive postures for a few minutes at a time to nourish & infuse the Yin tissues with blood flow.

This method enhances chi flow into the connective tissues & nourish the meridians housed within them, creating a sense of relaxed calm & balanced energy. This class is acceptable for all levels of experience.

YANG YOGA

Yang Yoga is the more traditional Hatha or Ashtanga based Asana practice that develops muscular strength, stamina, & flexibility.

Yin/Yang Yoga classes balance the newly developed Yin Yoga practice for the first half of the class with traditional Yang Yoga practices for the second half of the class. The balance between the two divisions of the class are seamlessly blended by Alana & her instructions throughout the sequence.

BREATHWORK + PRANAYAMA

Controlled breathing enhances, cleanses & refines the capacity to which we absorb, assimilate & distribute nutrients from food & our environment.

GUIDED MEDITATION

In this class, we apply methods of cultivating awareness & mindfulness for the purpose of training the mind in stillness. The class will begin with a brief introduction by the Yoga Therapist of the purpose & method of Guided Meditation, followed by a 30-minute seated meditation & an opportunity for contemplation & inquiry.


Taking a Yin class with Alana is truly a unique experience! Her class seamlessly flows from beginning to end as she holds space for you to explore your personal edge in a compassionate, loving, and directed way. In doing so she has helped me to become a softer more aware version of myself. That is a gift!
