Instructor: Stephen Joyce
This class is a series of poses (asana) with constant movement using vinyasa (movement with breath) to link one asana to the next through a series of counter-poses. The movement is linked with the rhythms of the breath to take the practice beyond a physical experience. The sequence conditions the entire body by building strength and improving flexibility. The vinyasa (movement with breath) assists in building heat to help relax the muscles and create greater flexibility. Each pose is designed to align the spine in such a way that at the end of the practice the body will be in perfect alignment.
"I was thinking about doing yoga and I had saw Amana's advertisement in the Hampton Herald. At the time I had a 6 month old at home so it was a good opportunity for me to get a night out and get my feet back under myself. I enjoy the talking at the beginning of the class. What Steven says makes me think during the week. I really enjoy the small class sizes it makes it less threatening. Amana makes you feel as though you do not need to be a master yogi to participate. It is comfortable at any level and they modify poses for each person if they are struggling. Attending Yoga is a good mental break from the week that is very much needed."
