Your yoga journey will turn inward by practicing mostly with the eyes closed, enabling you to “feel” instead of “see” your way into a pose. Great way to learn the asanas (poses), as all poses, from standing to seated, will be held for longer periods of time. May contain a short flow, but mainly will be a slow venture into the asanas.
This class offers a blend of a little of everything, with an emphasis on “Slow” & “Yin”. Flows will be a small aspect, basically utilized to lubricate the joints. A slightly challenging, yet relaxing class that will keep you returning for more. Created with every “body” in mind, this is a great class for all.
In Slow Burn, students are encouraged to allow the eyes to remain closed throughout the practice (peeking is permitted), moving from the simple to the more challenging poses. As time melts away, the mind turns inward, allowing for a moving meditation. Deeper, more calming poses are offered at the end, allowing the joints and ligaments to lengthen and tone. Great for active beginners and is a natural transition into the more challenging, aerobic Ashtanga & Vinyasa classes. Warm Room.
This class is accessible to EVERYONE! You have to experience it. You will LOVE how it makes you feel!
Vinyasa is a Sanskrit term meaning “one breath, one movement”. Our teachers will take things nice and slow in this class, meeting the abilities of the majority in the class. This is a very fun class, set to upbeat music. Sort of like dancing. Slightly aerobic.
Warm (versus heated) Room.
Vinyasa at Village Yoga is “Detroit’s Original Vinyasa” created by Jonny Kest at the Center for Yoga. Set to upbeat, vibrant music, the teacher walks the students through choreographed flows and then allows the students to flow at their own pace. This class strengthens the body and the mind – the mind attains more focus, memory, intention, allowing for a meditative state.
Aligning breath and movement ignites the Agni, the body’s incinerator, removing toxins from the body, mind & Spirit. Very Aerobic, Heated Room.
The Ashtanga Practice, also known as Power Yoga, is a fluid flow of asanas (postures), without pause, moving from one pose to another, taking deep breaths through the nose. The practice requires strength, speed and endurance. Great for those that want to take their practice to a new level and for those learning to teach yoga. Heated Room.
Village Yoga wants everyone to enjoy the benefits of a yoga practice, yet cannot fit a class into their schedule. Others want a special time for themselves, alone, or with a partner. Great for Group Cohesion.
Private and Semi-Private Classes Available.
