Yoga is beneficial in so many ways. In general it is a mindful approach to exercise. Breath coordinated with movement. This mindful exercise provides stretching and strengthening to all parts of our bodies. The nice thing about TAYS' style of yoga is that it is available to all levels of ability. We have a Hatha Basics class that is a mindful, not-so-speedy approach to movement. We focus more on details and alignment and sometimes individuals need certain modifications to make these poses available to them. We also have props that help support certain or align body parts to maximize benefit. We also have Power classes or Vinyasa style that is more flowing..so in addition to strengthening and stretching you get a cardiovascular workout ( i.e., working you heart and your lungs).
The first class is $12 tax in...and then the best buy after that is 20 chits that you can purchase online. When you purchase automatic renewal (under "contracts" online) you get 10% off our prices. So each class with this option ends up costing $12.15 (or $10.56 + tax). A great buy!
It is best to come 2-3 times per week to start seeing benefits but if you can only come once is awhile that is helpful too. Just try to continue your practice at home to further your benefit. We invite students to work within their own level of challenge in all of our classes, however some classes are paced at a more challenging level than others. Finding the right fit will allow your yoga journey to be successful.
New to Yoga
We have a special New To Yoga Class on Tuesdays at 5:30pm that is catered especially for new Yoga students. So if you are at all intimidated in taking a yoga class or if you just want to start at the beginning this is the place for you. No need to pre-register. Just show up with movable breathable clothes and we have the rest.
Beginners might like to begin with a "basics" class. "Basics" classes and "specialty" classes offer more instruction. The Basics classes introduce the movements, sequences and poses explored at TAYS.
There are 2 types of "basics" classes: "Power Basics", and "Hatha Basics" classes. The "Power" classes have more focus on working with the energy and breath of the body to assist in deepening of the postures. The "Hatha" classes have more focus on details and alignment in the easier levels and become more physically challenging at the "Hatha Vinyasa" level.
This is a beginner level class with emphasis on coordination of breath and movement, and also on safety and alignment.
It is slower paced offering modification(s) for less flow and easier transitions. Our teachers can offer modifications or props when necessary to avoid strain or stress with certain poses, allowing everyone to obtain benefit and joyful practice. This class is a great place to start practicing, especially if you are new to yoga or enjoy learning the details of the poses.
This is a challenging yet accessible vinyasa class. This class links breath to movement to get the heart rate going, focuses on foundational postures and deepens the understanding of alignment. This class is a great place to start practicing, especially if you enjoy a bit of physical challenge.
