Yoga in the salt room at bodymind float JAnuary 28 7:45-8:45 PM with Sophie Tashkovski

Salt therapy is a safe and deeply relaxing way to address many respiratory ailments. Bodymind's dry salt aerosol therapy brings these remedies into the 21st century. It's 100% natural and safe for virtually everyone, including children.

Salt has both anti-inflammatory and sterilizing properties. It kills bacteria and draws moisture from the bronchioles. Mucous thins, sinuses drain and breathing becomes easier. Salt therapy can alleviate the symptoms of respiratory ailments such as cystic fibrosis, asthma, rhinitis, allergies and hayfever, sinusitis, chronic bronchitis and emphysema.

This class is limited to 8 participants. We'll focus on Pranayama (control of breath) and Yin Yoga. Bring a mat and a water bottle. Bodymind Float has filtered water available and wipes for cleaning your mat after class. Feel free to enjoy a relaxing cup of tea after your session! Please arrive at Bodymind Float at least 5-10 minutes before class time.

master class: better body image vision and flow with christina humbert February 2, 2019 1:00-3:00 PM

The New Year typically brings about “new year, new me” resolutions that undoubtedly revolve around rigid diet and exercise routines rather than making healthy, sustainable changes -one of those being accepting and loving ourselves.

This two part class is designed to reconnect and revive your body and mind, teaching you the tools, techniques, and poses to start the journey to self love both on and off your mat.

The first part of class features a self exploration and self discovery component where participants are encouraged to bring a journal (although not required) as we work through a series of different exercises and prompts to begin your journey in creating your better body image vision.

The second part of class is an open level, vinyasa style flow and a restorative savasana leaving you renewed, feeling bliss, and at peace with yourself.

This class is FREE to Monthly Unlimited Auto Pay customers, however, if a Monthly Unlimited Auto Pay customer signs up but does not attend and does not early cancel within 24 hours of the class they will be charged due to limited capacity in the room. All other clients $25/Master Class.

master class: Active flexibility with patrick dibello

February 16, 2016 1:00-3:00 PM

Active flexibility is a key component to increasing your overall range of motion in muscles and joints-your agonist muscle must overpower gravity without the assistance of an outside source to move the limb as far as possible into a stretch. In this workshop we will focus on increasing active flexibility using three different techniques: Soft tissue release (using tennis balls), neural flossing, and muscle activation/strengthening. The areas of focus will be hips, hamstrings, and shoulders.

Neural flossing is an incredibly effective restorative technique that we will use to help alleviate compression in the wrists, shoulders, back, and hamstrings.

Muscle activation and strengthening will be the final stage of our active stretching program. Learn to engage the correct muscles while building the strength to take your body to its end range of motion. We will use specific exercises to develop strong control at our end range of motion to ensure we move forward with a safe practice.

This is an all levels workshop and a wonderful compliment to your traditional Vinyasa practice!

This class is FREE to Monthly Unlimited Auto Pay customers, however, if a Monthly Unlimited Auto Pay customer signs up but does not attend and does not early cancel within 24 hours of the class they will be charged due to limited capacity in the room. All other clients $25/Master Class.

master class: yoga for the chakras root chakra and the source with rebecca alexander March 23, 2019 1:00-3:00 PM

This Master Class is part one of a two-part series: Come for one, the other, or both! Prepare to learn about the root chakra and its connection with inner balance. Chakras are energy centers in the body, located up and down the midline. Located at the base of the spine and pelvic floor area, the root chakra is associated with the color red, and regulates the energy associated with instinct, survival, and safety. How might we better connect with ourselves and the world around us? How can we feel more solid and stable during our daily lives, by using yoga to ground us? These are some questions we will address as we discuss the root chakra and its role in yoga practice. This class will also include tips, tools, and techniques you can practice to feel more connected with your breath and connection with the Earth during yoga both on and off the mat. The class will include journaling and include an asana practice to leave you feeling grounded, restored, and refreshed.
