Every yoga class with Jade will begin with time for centering to clear & quiet the mind. We will practice breathing exercises to help increase lung capacity & respiratory function, while bringing energy & vitality to the body. We will follow with a series of warm-up exercises to increase blood circulation, lubricate the joints, & warm the body for our practice. We will then progress with an eclectic series of yoga asanas (postures.) Every class will include the 3 major movements of the spine; forward bending, backward bending, & spinal twisting. Each pose is designed to release deep body tension, bring balance to the nervous system, stimulate internal organ function, increase flexibility, strengthen & stretch the body. We will conclude the class resting in savasana, a relaxation posture intended to rejuvenate the mind, body, & spirit. Students are guided with clear, concise, easy to follow instructions. Contraindications, proper alignment tips, & modifications are offered for each pose.
