Yoga classes at Myo draw primarily on therapeutic and alignment based traditions like Iyengar; gentle and restorative yoga; and mindfulness and somatic exploration. All classes are taught by highly trained teachers experienced with a wide range of bodies, experience levels, injuries and concerns.
In the past 60 years, the practice of yoga in the US has diverged into many styles, from fitness-focused power yoga classes to spiritual traditions like Kundalini yoga and everywhere in between. There are benefits to all styles, but our focus is on good foundations and form, injury prevention, and pain management through better strength, alignment, and nervous system regulation. We want yoga practice to be an accessible and enjoyable part of your movement journey.
So much of the quality of your daily life depends on the mobility of and strength in your hips. In this class, we will explore how to increase or maintain the strength and mobility of your hips through yoga postures which can also alleviate stress in the shoulders, low back, knees, legs, glutes, groin, hip flexors, ankles, foot and heel due to tight hips. Poses in Iyengar are usually held for longer than in other styles of yoga, allowing the practitioner to focus on the details and make adjustments which transform the impact of each posture.
Somatic flow is a unique experience that brings about support for overall wellness through integrated mind, body, and energetic balancing. The goal of this class is to aid in trauma release and injury prevention, promote cellular regeneration and structural integrity, and create an embodied experience that feels best to you. Together, we will incorporate trauma release practices, guided breathwork and meditation, hatha, and yin yoga to help one find ease in the body.
Sound healing is an experience like no other for soothing the mind, body, and spirit. We use crystal singing bowls and gongs to generate sound frequencies for an incredible therapeutic effect. Participants relax and listen while the sound vibrations promote deep relaxation and a meditative state.
In Restorative Yoga, we practice observing what it feels like to be physically and mentally at ease. The practice has been described as one of conscious relaxation and softening into stillness, an exhale for both mind and body. Through the use of props (blankets, bolsters, blocks, sandbags) we support the body in gentle poses on the ground for up to 20 minutes.
