Today's class is being subbed by Sabrina while Shae recovers from muscle injuries.
Ananda Yoga offers classic hatha postures with affirmations, pranayams (breathing techniques), and meditation.
This class is for all levels as all poses can be modified to the students level and it is a slow paced/pose-by-pose class. Ananda Yoga is attentive to safety and alignment and modifying all poses to fit the student.
Ananda Yoga emphasizes the mind/body connection, movement of energy, higher awareness, promoting calmness, relaxation & inner joy. Along with this safe and meditative practice comes strength and flexibility over time. A typical class uses the poses to refine self-awareness and experience inner peace.
Typical class time is 1 hour and 15 minutes (except Fridays are 1 hour only): Centering/Meditation approx 5-10 min, Warm ups 5-10 min, yoga practice portion is approximately 45-50 minutes, Savasana/Closing meditation 5-10 min.
Ananda Yoga is unique in using affirmations, Energization Exercises, and following traditional yoga principles. "Ananda Yoga" was created by Paramhansa Yogananda's disciple Swami Kriyananda. The poses, philosophy and history stem from Paramhansa Yogananda's lineage and teachings.
