spa yoga:Senses, physical practice, & Awareness

75 min slow-flow, floor-based, whole-body sensory experience based on Fluid Yoga sequencing.  By engaging all five of the senses with soft candlelight, soothing music, aromatherapy, lots of hands-on assists and a renewed awareness of taste (and sometimes chocolate!), SPA aligns practitioners with the inner wisdom of deep relaxation.  

During SPA, you may discover extra hands on assists and massages, a calming candlelit room atmosphere, delightful scents and beautiful music in the background.

Yang to Ying

Our yang-to-yin yoga focuses on mindfulness and paying attention to the body as we move through the 75-minute sequence. We begin with a vigorous vinyasa practice to warm up and strengthen the body as we build and maintain both our flexibility and balance. Next we transition to yin yoga, in which the poses are done on the floor and held for a few minutes at a time in a relaxed position, in order to provide a gentle stretch to the myofascial groups of the body, improving the health of the tissues and the flow of chi. Students are encouraged to make the practice their own with variations given to allow students to to individualize the practice during class. This intermediate class is open to all levels and beginners. 

Yin Yoga

A slow-paced, meditative yoga practice that targets the fascia and connective tissues of the body by holding postures long periods of time, typically 3 to 10 minutes, with the muscles relaxed. In this yin workshop, Isaac will introduce the yin practice to Yoga NoMa. Topics will include (1) how to safely practice yin yoga; (2) the basics of yin yoga anatomy and skeletal variation; and (3) the interplay between yin yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Prenatal yoga

Prepare your body for childbirth, both physically and emotionally. In this workshop we'll focus on poses that not only build strength and stability in the hips and low back, but that guide the body toward a receptive state of softening and opening. We'll practice breathing techniques to prepare for labor, and poses that build up the stamina and the mental flexibility needed for motherhood. The workshop will conclude with a supportive savasana. It's suitable for women in all trimesters, and is an excellent way to meet fellow mothers. No prior yoga experience is necessary.
