strength, mobility, mindful movement and meditation: which practice is right for you?
The gada, or steel mace is a traditional training tool from India. Its unique offset weight engages the stabilizing muscles around the joints, increasing overall stability, core and rotational strength. This design makes it the perfect partner to yoga mat practice. Gada Flow is a dynamic practice that combines the best of mindful yoga movement with functional strength and fitness. Options are provided for challenges at every level.
This class type cultivates awareness and strength, and mobility in a fun, body-positive environment. Each class builds on specific muscular actions, poses, or a functional movement, within the framework of a vinyasa yoga class. The pace allows for integration and body awareness, and real options for challenges are included at every level– instead of “just take child’s pose,” you’ll learn how to work with your body in variations that are right for you. Mindful Vinyasa is strong, mobile, and meets you where you are!
A slower-paced class incorporating functional and flow movement, this class minimizes complex transitions and is designed to be more accessible than mindful vinyasa. Students are encouraged to explore their own optimal alignment as they improve strength and mobility. Resources for somatic awareness, mindfulness and nervous system regulation are included throughout the practice.
Our most relaxing classes, restorative, yin, and yinrestorative offer a menu of functional stretching and restorative postures, using the support of bolsters, blocks, blankets and straps. Yin focuses more on stretch, while restorative is all about relaxation. YinRestorative blends the two styles. Meditation and somatic mindfulness techniques are taught throughout each practice, encouraging each student to better understand and work with their unique physiology and stress response.
Chair yoga classes incorporate strength, mobility and mindfulness techniques, using the support of a chair and other props. Gentle yoga classes may use the support of a chair or other props, and include less movement than Slow Flow, but more movement than YinRestorative.
Functional Movement classes teach bodyweight exercises, mobility techniques, and foundational human movement skills. These classes can be used as a standalone practice, or to enhance your yoga or other movement practice.
Laura teaches various meditation techniques, many of which are based on Tibetan Buddhist styles of meditation, calming the mind to access a stable and vivid awareness that is the very essence of our life experience.
This online library features accessible and inclusive yoga, mobility, strength, self-inquiry and meditation practices. This is a place where self-acceptance and creative expression are invited; we encourage individual exploration and creative expression. There’s no wrong way to move: you’ll learn to reconnect to your own embodied experience so that you feel empowered to find your own optimal alignment in any given moment.
