High Country Yoga

Our Om is Your Om

High Country Yoga welcomes everyone in the community to join in classes and workshops of all varieties.

All of the classes on the schedule are taught to practitioners of all skill levels.  There will be something for you in every class no matter if it is your first time or your thousandth time.

 

Core Yoga Flow - A Yoga Flow class that focuses on strengthening the abdominal muscles with core exercises and planks!  Learn how to build fire in your core and operate from your center on a day-to-day basis.  Strengthening the core is a tool for gaining better posture and relieving lower back pain or discomfort.

 

Deep Stretch -  It's time to slow down and get into the deep connective tissue of your body.  This class is taught at a very slow pace, and will leave you in a meditative state.  There will generally be no standing postures and we will learn to surrender to gravity in order to rejuvenate the body.  Stretching straps and yoga blocks will typically be used in order to give you the support you need in each stretch.

 

Gentle Yoga -  A soothing and accessible class that focuses on easing the body into different positions in order to prepare it for final relaxation.  You will learn to move with ease and comfort and develop an understanding of the connection between mind and body.  This class is great for beginners as it teaches you how to use the yoga props/equipment.  It is also beneficial to increase mobility and range of motion in the body.

 

Gentle Yoga with Guided Relaxation - A Gentle Yoga class with a 15 minute relaxation at the end, which is done lying on the back.  Use the instructor's guidance in order to find a present moment focus or visualization.  It is time to take a break from the overload in the mind!

 

Heated Vinyasa Flow-  Our most popular class!  This class offers a dynamic flow where you will learn to link movement to breath.  A vinyasa is a series of 4 postures - high plank, low push-up, backbend, and downward facing dog - and the vinyasa sequence is done several times in class to wipe the slate clean, strengthen and lengthen, and continue on with a new perspective.  This class is heated to about 85-90 degrees with added humidity, so be prepared to release toxins through your sweat.  This is our more physical and challenging class that we offer, so please come with an open mind, and don't forget to drink plenty of water before and after!

 

Heated Vin/Yin Flow - A Vinyasa and Yin Yoga fusion class!  This class will be in a heated room of about 85-90 degrees with added humidity.  The first half of the class will be focused on building internal heat through the practice of sun salutations and vinyasa movements.  The second portion of the class will involve deep stretching and relaxing postures in order to renew the body and mind.

 

Heated Yoga Flow - Our Yoga Flow class taken up a notch!  This class is great for all levels as it is taught at a middle-ground intermediate level, with the option to modify or advance each pose.  The class will be heated to about 85-90 degrees with added humidity, so make sure to drink plenty of water before and after!

 

Open Studio - Let's play!  Use this hour to practice whatever you'd like to work on.  This is not a guided class, but rather a time for you to work on your own skills and ask any questions you may have.  Whether you want to do your own thing on the mat or play with arm balances, inversions, and acro yoga, there is always something to work on!

 

Reggae Yoga Flow -  A Yoga Flow class in a feel-good environment!  Let go of your work week with this playful class in which the reggae music is turned up for you to feel the good vibrations!  A very community orientated class, sometimes with a group pose or two incorporated!

 

Restorative Yoga - It is time for the best Yoga nap ever!  We will use bolsters (thick, sturdy pillows), blankets, and yoga blocks to fully support our body in each pose.  Each pose is very gentle and will be held anywhere from 2-10 minutes.  You can close your eyes for most of this class, relax, and let go!  A great mid-week release!

 

Slow Flow Yoga - A Yoga Flow class broken down at a slower pace to focus more on breath and alignment.  This class is great for beginners because there is plenty of time in each pose to break it down and understand it more clearly.

 

Yoga Flow -  A traditional yoga class that incorporates a full practice and teaches you to listen to your body at every moment.  Learn to live in the present moment and listen to your body while feeling at peace with yourself and your surroundings.  This is a great practice for all skill levels, with options to modify each pose or advance each pose.

 

 

Please be well hydrated before class begins and continue that hydration during and afterwards.

 

Please note the class lengths on the schedule (ranging from 30 to 90 minutes).  If you have to leave early for any reason, please let the instructor know before class begins.
