Your Yoga Louisville Studio can accommodate a full spectrum of yoga practitioners with several different offerings. Please read below to learn more about our classes and check out our class schedule.

 

Hatha Yoga

 

The word hatha is translated as ha meaning “sun” and tha meaning “moon”. The word yoga, from the Sanskrit word yuj, means “to bind” or mostly interpreted as “union”; uniting your mind, body and soul. Hatha Yoga is the heart of all practices. It is not about flexibility or the ability to do difficult postures, but awareness of the body and the breath; combining your mind, body and soul into one, while focusing on your breath. The asanas (or postures) are designed to align your skin, muscles, and bones. They help open all of the channels in your body so that energy can flow freely. This class is suitable for all levels.

 

Hatha Flow Yoga

 

Hatha Flow (with Vinyasa influence) focuses on the specific manner in which you flow from one posture to the next with the breath, while maintaining the flow of energy. It encourages focus and balance in order to gain flexibility, increase endurance and muscle resistance. This class is recommended for students who want to deepen their practice and increase their strength.

 

Power Hour Vinyasa Yoga

 

This class will flow from one pose to the next with intention on the breath. Each movement is aligned and linked with each inhale and exhale. This will only be a 45 minute class and is designed for intermediate or advanced students. This is NOT a beginners class.

 

Therapeutic Yoga

 

This class is about making Yoga available to all people, regardless of age, limitations or experience level. It is a fusion-type Yoga where principles of resistance and isometrics are incorporated particularly at the beginning of the practice for warm-up. Pilates-like movements are also infused. This is a breath-centered Yoga that develops concentration and strength while moving at a pace comfortable for all.

 

Yin Yoga

 

Yin Yoga allows us to work the “yin” tissues or the deeper tissues of our joints, ligaments, fascia and bones, whereas Hatha Yoga, for example, works the muscular half or the “yang” tissues. Yin Yoga is not restorative yoga, but it is designed to help you sit longer and more comfo rtably by stretching the connective tissues around the joints. It involves variations of seated and supine poses typically held for three to five minutes. Yin is a needed complement to the more muscular styles of yoga. A good balance of Yin and Yang is beneficial. This class is suitable for all levels.

 

Yoga Nidra/Meditation

 

Is your mind constantly running in a million directions?  Do you need to slow down?  Meditating can help calm the mind and allow you to be present in that moment.  When in a meditative state, your mind is silent, and you are in a state of complete peace.  Yoga Nidra is a meditative practice that helps you come into deep relaxation coming to that state of meditative consciousness called samadhi (divinity).
