Types of Yoga
Veda Yoga offers primarily vinyasa flow classes. We have 3 levels of vinyasa to accommodate beginner, intermediate, and advanced practitioners. We also offer a couple specialty classes once a week: inversions, acroyoga, restorative, and kirtan. Our instructors come from an eclectic mix of backgrounds and we respect each person’s individual experience. We encourage our students to adjust or modify their practice as they see fit.
Yoga is a practice to benefit physical, mental, and spiritual health. Nobody is “good” or “bad” at yoga. Yoga is not a competition and it doesn’t matter how far or how deep one can get into a pose. What matters is that you breathe consciously and stay connected to the present moment. These are really the only two things you need for a successful practice. That’s it. There is no such thing as a perfect pose. The phrase “no pain no gain does not apply”. Just come and be yourself. Leave your shoes and ego at the door.
Veda Flow 1
Veda Flow 1 is a vinyasa style class designed specifically for the beginning practitioner, although all levels are welcome. The focus of this class is primarily alignment oriented, helping the student feel comfortable and confident in each pose before moving to the next. It’s important to come to class with an open mind and the intention of not taking yourself to seriously. Yoga should be fun, so find your flow and let everything else go!
Veda Flow 2
Veda Flow 2 is an all levels vinyasa style class designed with the emphasis on breath. Vinyasa literally means “to place in a special way”. Placing movement with breath is where the art of this practice lies. As we begin to establish a deep connection between our body, mind and breath we are able to easily tune into the present moment. We leave all our mental distractions by the way side and tap into the frequency of grace.
Veda Flow 3
Veda Flow 3 is an advanced vinyasa style class that incorporates a ton of arm balances and inversions. This class is not for the faint of heart. In this class, you will gain new perspectives as you hang upside down and challenge your body in ways you may never have thought possible. All levels are welcome.
Turn your world upside down and get a new perspective! This class is more workshop style. Learn how to approach rigorous postures such as arm balances and inversions from a new lens while keeping shoulders, neck and wrists safe. Create breakthroughs and gain confidence as you tap into the unleashed potential that lies within.
Restorative is a gentle yoga class focused on breath and relaxation. While the class varies week to week some of the practices include self massage, slow flow, and resting poses propped up with blocks, bolsters and straps.
AcroYoga® blends the spiritual wisdom of yoga, the loving kindness of Thai massage, and the dynamic power of acrobatics. These three lineages form the foundation of a unique practice that cultivates trust, connection, and playfulness. Built upon the framework of cultivating skillful partnership, AcroYoga provides a vehicle to explore positive and supportive relationships with an emphasis on honest, clear and compassionate communication. The practice inherently creates a strong bond and fosters a sense of community amongst participants.
One of the oldest sacred music traditions of the world, the kirtan call-and-response chanting genre comes to us from India. Using ancient Sanskrit mantras, the kirtan calls upon sacred energies which serve to quiet the mind, remove obstacles, and connect us with our Source.
