Intensive Schedule 2018

Next few intensives with Heide

April 3rd - 6th, all levels intensive with Heide 4 days, $80
April 9th - 13th, intermediate advanced, students should have a strong inversion self practice to participate, including sirsasana and a working knowledge of the names of the poses in Sanscrit and the Iyengar versions of the poses.  No beginners. 5 days, $90
April 23rd - 27th, all levels intensive, 5 days  $90

Iyengar Intensives - These 5-20 day intensives are intended to help the yoga student develop a daily practice.  The intensive begins with developing strength and balance in the standing poses, gentle chest opening in beginning backbends and leading up to beginning inversions, including shoulder balance, head stand, and full arm balance.  Unless specified beginners are welcome to attend.  This is a great way to experience yoga as it is intended to be practiced, 
DAILY  Classses are 2 hours (7:30-9:30am). Registration of full 5-20 classes recommended.  It is best to attend all classes consecutively as classes develop sequentially. Intensives are held at least once a month. 
 
Iyengar Level 1 -In this class we will work on foundational poses.  Standing poses, seated poses, beginning backbends, twists and forward bends.  This class is for the beginning student. This class will introduce poses that develop strength, flexibility and stamina.  This class is intended to introduce the basics of sequencing and principles of alignment. 

Iyengar - all levels
In this class we work on foundational poses, safe for all levels of practitioners.  Alternate poses are available for the beginner student.  Student is expected to make appropriate decision.  In this class we explore the poses that develop the inversions and more advanced poses.  We continue to work on standing poses fundamental to developing strength and stamina. 

Alignment basics - all levels
In these classes we work on developing strength, stamina and flexibility.  These classes are slower in pace and great for beginners or those looking to refine their understanding of poses.  Poses are done often with props, such as blocks, blankets, ropes, and chairs.  These props help to  access new areas of the body and/ or allow us to hold poses longer than we normally could.  This has the function of increasing the beneficial nature of the postures, allowing to postures to penetrate deeper inside. GREAT FOR BEGINNERS OR THOSE NEWER TO YOGA OR LOOKING FOR A SLOWER PACE. Not a flow class

Easy Yoga with Tracey - all levels - In this class, we will untangle the tension that builds up in our bodies and minds and prevents us from feeling comfortable and easeful. We will use a combination of mindful movement, deep stretching, guided relaxation, and restorative postures to allow the body to release stress and find ease. No experience necessary. 

Open practice - Studio is open to students with an ongoing yoga practice.  This is for students who do not require instruction and know how to practice safely.   This is a time to practice what you have learned or understood from your teacher.  This is not a led practice, there is no given sequence or instruction.  Please be responsible with yourself, practice safely and with respect to those around you.  If you have an appropriate question it is fine to ask an experienced student or teacher, but try and find out for yourself if you can first answer the question.  Ideally for ongoing students of Yoga Bywater. $5
 
Vinyasa Flow Yoga with Bear- all levels - Vinyasa yoga matches each posture with the breath, creating an energetic, flowing practice. Bear's style of Vinyasa is based on skillful alignment, dynamic movement and lots of heart. These classes are appropriate for all levels, from those new to yoga to advanced practitioners.

Pilates Mat with Lori - all levels -  With deep reverence for the original mat exercises developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s, this class will prioritize movement principles such as efficiency, precision, breath, concentration, center, and flow. 

Pilates Mat classes begin by observing relative alignment of the spine and pelvis, learning how to create spinal stability and how to create spinal mobility. We learn optimal ways to breathe so that our core muscles are available both by voluntary contraction and by natural reflex. We progress to movements that integrate our limbs into our trunk and develop an understanding of how movements of the spine relate to movements of the entire body. Exercises are performed lying on one’s back, side, or stomach, from seated, kneeling and standing positions. Be prepared to move your spine in all directions: forward, back and side bending, rotation, and combinations of each. By practicing Pilates regularly, we hope to optimize the connection between mind and body in order to facilitate ease, economy, and efficiency in ordinary and extraordinary movements.

New: FREE Community Yoga Wednesday 4:30-5:30 all levels welcome, this will have a rotating cast of teachers who are currently in a Teacher Training program and will be ongoing.  All welcome. 

Led Practice with Lisa G. (60 mins)
This class is for people who practice yoga or attend class regularly, are familiar with the basic postures and are comfortable following the teacher in a set sequence with verbal cues and a breath count. 



*Please come to class at least 5 minutes before classes begin.  Please come with an empty stomach.  Please bring your own mat (We have some available if you don't have one yet). All other equipment is provided. Wear comfortable, loose clothing and bare feet.
