|What is Slow Flow at In Balance Yoga?|
"Slow Flow is a slower type of flow (vinyasa) yoga, in which the movement is synchronized with breath in a smooth, flowing way. Ranging from a gentle and therapeutic pace to a mildly vigorous practice, you will be calmly challenged and energized in this class. As you flow through powerful, graceful sequences at a slower pace than regular flow classes, the focus turns to building and engaging your strength and concentration. By moving slowly and holding postures for several breaths, you will build strength and increase flexibility through slow, focused movements, allowing your body to deepen into a stretch or pause in strengthening poses."
*Recommended for Beginners
Offered on Friday from 3 - 4 pm
What is Hot Yoga inspired by Baptiste at In Balance Yoga?
Hot Yoga inspired by Baptiste Power Yoga is a rigorous and meditative vinyasa practice with the room heated to 95 degrees. While challenging students physically, the teacher infuses the class with active self inquiry tools to encourage students to experience new possibilities in their lives. Classes inspired by Baptiste Power Yoga encourage modifications and are taught with an emphasis on clear directives. As a result the class is designed to be accessible to everyone, regardless of fitness level, age, experience or background.
Offered on Thursday, 7:45 - 8:45 pm and Friday, 6:30 - 7:30 am with Bethany!
What is "Warm Yoga" at In Balance Yoga?
The same sequence as Hot Yoga - 15 degrees cooler. This class is for those that enjoy or want to practice the hot yoga series, but in cooler temperatures.
Offered three times a week.
Tuesday, 8 - 9 am with Ivi
Thursday, 7 - 8 am with Betsy
Sunday, 8:15 - 9:30 am with Betsy
