Seaside Yoga Class Descriptions
Our goal at seasideYOGA is for every person who walks in and walks out of this space to gain something; to honor each individual and their personal journey by providing something for everyone. To leave feeling relaxed, empowered, at peace, motivated, and moved in some way shape or form.
seasideVINYASA integrates breath and movement, providing students with a space to explore a dynamic yoga flow carefully constructed to dive deeper into the mind/body connection.
Power Vinyasa classes are taught at a faster pace and with the integration of strength training incorporated into the vinyasa flow. Students are encouraged to further their individual yoga skills.
Beginner classes are taught at a much slower pace with careful attention to alignment. Great for those new to the yoga practice and looking to further their knowledge in the field.
Through the use of physical postures and movement (called a Kriya) the muscular, glandular, circulatory, and nervous systems are strengthened and balanced. Breathing techniques are employed to develop mastery over moods as well as processing emotions and life experiences. Lastly, meditation and sound current techniques bring about a state of harmony between body, mind and spirit.
Seaside Yoga's Slow Flow class offers the integration of breath and movement as in a typical vinyasa class, but at a slower pace. Poses are typically held for longer periods of time, breathing techniques that lend aid to maximize relaxation are incorporated, and more restorative poses are added in.
Yogalates is inspired by yoga and Pilates, as its name suggests. This “East meets West” fusion merges the ancient Indian practice of yoga with the Western practice of Pilates. It combines the yogic focus on enhanced mind and body awareness, strength, stamina, flexibility and balance, with Pilates techniques to improve posture and create a strong, stable foundation for movement.A Yogalates class may include popular yoga postures like downward-facing dog and the warrior poses with Sun Salutations, stretching and intense core and abdominal strength work. Some exercises may require the use of props such as blocks, resistance bands and weights to intensify the effect. Yogalates may also feature breathing exercises, guided mindfulness and relaxation.
Baptiste Inspired Vinyasa
This class is a breath centered Vinyasa flow with a foundation in sun salutations. The breath powers the transition from pose to pose. As a Baptiste inspired class, it follows the traditional arc, building towards a strong peak pose before moving towards Yin poses. It is challenging yet accessible to all levels.
