Whether you want to stand taller, bend over backwards, or open a pickle jar taped to your back, BYS Yoga offers a suitable yoga style four to five times every day. All classes are taught by qualified instructors who strive to disseminate the healing power of yoga to all who wish to learn. Basics classes concentrate on fundamental Hatha yoga postures for beginning benders, and Chakra flow/Kundalini sessions and open classes—an exploration of seated meditation, pranayama (breathing exercises), and sun salutations—welcome all experience levels. Yin yoga targets ligaments, bones, and joints of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine for added stretching and freer range of motion, and restorative yoga includes "active relaxation" to reduce stress and avoid potholes of frustration on the road to inner peace. Students who have mastered the downward dog and the upward yeti can move on to level two classes. Check out the fall schedule for more information.
Yoga Digs provides students with a safe, judgment-free environment where they can improve themselves mentally and physically. To help foster this self-improvement, the instructors encourage attendees to find a practice that is challenging, yet suitable for their current level and ability. That's why Yoga Digs offers a wide range of classes that vary in their focus and their intensity. Building Blocks sessions, for instance, introduce new students to the fundamental postures and breathing techniques at a gentle, accommodating pace. For experienced students, the instructors lead more vigorous classes, such as Power Flow, which uses dynamic asana sequences and breathing techniques that challenge minds and bodies. Regardless of the class, though, the teachers all work according to one goal: to help students grow in their practice over time.
