Yoga has its own language, and you may feel like you are listening to a foreign dialect if you’re new to the practice. Phrases like “sivananda yoga” and “svaroopa” are not self-explanatory. To help you navigate your way through the language of yoga, and find the right yoga class, here are the definitions to some of the most commonly used yoga terms.
An athletic form of yoga that introduces fabric ropes and other props to help you spin, stretch, and strike more than 700 unique yoga poses. The trapeze-like work out is ideal for yogis who want to partake in a more rigorous workout.
Barre yoga incorporates dance and a barre prop. This type of yoga creates a fusion that focuses both on the tenets of yoga, such as meditation and a calm mind, and the stretching and flexibility associated with ballet. This style is good for intermediate and advanced students of yoga.
Also called hot yoga, this style of the practice takes place in a room with temperatures above 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The heat helps detoxify the body and can also keep your mind focused.
Meditation is a key component to any yoga class. The quiet practice is often introduced at the beginning and end of our yoga classes. Meditation encourages a clearing of the mind and can bring about emotional healing and serenity.
Private sessions are a good option for beginner yoga students and advanced yogis alike. Your Serenity Yoga instructor will help you align your body properly and pay special attention to the areas where you can improve your yoga mastery.
Vinyasa yoga is also called flow yoga. In this style, movements and poses are synchronized with the breath. Typically, upward movements are performed while inhaling and downward movements are performed while exhaling.
Yin Students looking for a slower paced class will enjoy a yin yoga class. In this style of yoga, each pose is held for a long period of time. This meditative style of yoga is ideal for enhancing your mind-body relationship and recovering from muscle soreness or injury.
No matter what your level of fitness or flexibility, you can enjoy health and lifestyle benefits from practicing yoga at Serenity Yoga. Many yoga poses -- or "asanas", as they are called in Sanskrit -- are fairly easy to do. Even the advanced asanas can often be modified to make them more accessible to the novice yogi. Classes exist for all skill levels at Serenity Yoga, and we can accommodate students at all levels of fitness. Even if you have a medical concern, such as pregnancy or a previous injury, we can still work with you to tailor your yoga practice to your specific needs and keep your yoga practice safe.
I have benefited tremendously from yoga sessions with Anderson.
