Yoga Classes at Embrace Yoga Studio
Yoga is a mind-body exercise that originated in India more than 5,000 years ago. While there are many styles of yoga, in general, every style includes postures (asanas), meditation, and breathing techniques (pranayama). With regular practice, yoga builds physical strength and flexibility while reducing stress and improving the mind-body connection.
Yoga health benefits include reduced blood pressure, increased focus, a deeper spiritual mind/body connection, more energy, and better sleep at night. Many elements of yogic philosophy, such as loving kindness, compassion and non-judgment, may also influence an individual lifestyle as they adopt healthier habits and make more positive, life-affirming choices.
Finding the Right Yoga for You
If you are new to yoga, you may be wondering what class to take. Remember that every single student experienced their first yoga class and their first at Embrace. You might have no idea what’s going on your first class (or second or third….) and that’s perfectly OK, neither did we! We’ve all been there so enter with an open mind.
We believe that you are capable of taking any class on our schedule and that’s why you don’t see us labeling classes as “beginner” or “advanced.” Yes, there is a learning curve however we encourage you to listen to the teachers’ cues, listen to your body, and take breaks any time. Also inform your teacher if it’s your first class with him/her and if there is anything you need to avoid. You can practice with confidence knowing that our teachers are specifically trained to not only help you progress in your practice, but also to help prevent your body from being injured. Yoga is highly adaptable and our teachers can offer modifications to keep your practice safe.
Everyone has a different intention for showing up on the mat so we’ve created this flow chart to help you find the right class for you! We offer classes from hot power to relax & restore and so much more! We’re confident that there’s an Embrace class for you. If you have questions please contact us.
