Yoga styles

Iyengar Yoga

Iyengar

Iyengar Yoga is characterized by great attention to detail on each pose, use of props, and focus on body alignment. It is highly verbal and precise, and your teacher will mindfully help modify each pose to help each student optimize their yoga practice. Expect a slower paced challenging class with intelligently sequenced poses, lead without music.

Vinyasa Flow Yoga

Vinyasa Flow, likened to a dynamic dance, is a practice where postures or asanas are connected through the breath for a transformative and balancing effect. Classes build heat, endurance, flexibility andstrength. The creative sequencing found in a vinyasa class is often built around surya namaskar (sun salutations). Vinyasa (also called Power Yoga) as a form is always evolving and teachers weave together wisdom teachings, poetry and music that can inspire physical, energetic, mental, intuitive, and pure bliss states of consciousness. (Levels 1 and higher)

Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga

The Ashtanga Yoga primary series is a set sequence of yoga poses (asanas) and is a challenging, vigorous practice which focuses on the synchronization of breath with the continuous flow of movement. Participants move through a set series of asanas, transitioning from one posture to another using sun salutation to build heat, endurance, flexibility, strength and mental focus. (Levels 2 and higher)

Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is also known as the Yoga of Awareness. It is a Raj Yoga and combines all the traditional eight limbs of Yoga. Its purpose is to awaken the kundalini, the energy flow in each of us. A typical class combines meditation, mantra (chanting), physical exercises and breathing techniques. Classes can include simple short sequences or may involve vigorous, even strenuous exercises, and strong breath techniques such as Breath of Fire, which challenge and strengthen the nervous and glandular systems and test the will of the practitioner beyond the limitations of their ego. Kundalini Yoga balances the subtle system of chakras and meridians within the body and helps clear out unwanted patterns and habits.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga

Soothe your soul in this restorative class! Restorative yoga blends moving meditations and bliss producing restorative poses, typically done on the floor with lots of supportive props coupled with soothing music. Restorative poses are an important part of any long-term yoga practice: they recharge our energy reserves, heal the effects of stress, and bring our nervous systems into a more balanced state. This class will leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed and renewed. (All levels).

Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga

While almost all styles of yoga offered here are hatha based, at Zenith our hatha classes concentrate on the learning of traditional asana (postures), breathing, mindfulness, and listening to the body. Unlike our Vinyasa based classes in which students flow through poses connected by sun salutations, in a Hatha class, emphasis is placed on longer held poses, core strength, flexibility, balance & concentration.

Pilates

Pilates

The goal of Pilates is overall body fitness, elongated supple muscles, and balance between body and mind. The emphasis is well rounded complete fitness – building strength and increasing flexibility. Zenith’s Pilates mat classes focus on integrating the entire body using your own body weight, gravity and props promoting ease and efficiency of movement through focused and controlled exercises developed by Joseph Pilates.

Meditation

Meditation

Meditation is the simple and direct practice of moment-to-moment mindfulness. Through careful and sustained observation, we experience the ever-changing flow of the mind/body process. With cultivated awareness we are able to accept more fully the pleasure and pain, fear and joy, sadness and happiness that inevitably occur in life. Everybody is welcome!
