Class Descriptions: 


Heated Yoga:  Known as “Hot Yoga” is a class dedicated to heating up the body from the inside out with the breath and movement, as well as the room temperature set around 95-100′ F, and the humidity level at 55.5%.  Combining the practice of Vinyasa Flow and Hatha yoga, focusing on proper alignment and synchronizing breath with movement. Your organs, muscles, heart, and skin will love you for stepping into one of these popular classes.  Perfect for sweating and detoxing on a winter evening.  Come in out of the cold, or after a fantastic day on the ski hill and enjoy the benefits of Hot Yoga.  Please bring a water bottle, hand towel, and a yoga mat towel to class.

Hot Yoga, “26 poses”  This class has a temperature of 105′ F, and the humidity level set at 75%.  The practice involves repeating the same 26 poses in set cycles for this 75 minute class.  Poses are designed to “systematically move fresh, oxygenated blood to 100% of your body, to each organ and fiber.”  The poses include triangle pose, tree pose, eagle pose, and cobra pose among other common hatha yoga poses.  Be sure to drink plenty of water during the class, bring a water bottle, hand towel, and a yoga mat towel to class.

Anusara/Gentle Yoga:  A heart opening practice. Welcome your day energized with an open mind and welcome to new possibilities. Focus is on attitude and alignment through movement and breath. This class is open to all levels of students with accommodations offered.  You will begin the practice with time to center, tune into the heart beat, and restorative positions.  Moving into heart opening, expanding the flexibility of the back, flowing with grace, and following the heart.

Vinyasa  Flow Yoga:  This class is designed for the flow of movement to be carried out by the keen awareness of the breath.  You will discover the healing art of the breath as we experiment with our postures (asanas), linking breath (pranayama) and movement (vinyasa).  Making a nourishing connection of mind, body, and spirit through each inhalation and exhalation. Ending with time for  relaxation, absorbing the work, and resting the mind.

Kids/Parent:  This 45 minute class is designed to create a wonderful way for children and adults alike to explore body, heart, and mind.  It also provides resources needed to lead a happier, healthier life in the workplace, at school, at home and with friends.  This class will include breath awareness, stability, balance, alignment, partner poses, creativity and ends with relaxation.  This is not about making the pose perfect, but enjoying the process of the practice along the way. Modeling the class structure of Roots Tribe Yoga.

Teens, Parents invited:  This class is geared toward empowering youth to walk in their true north, to build confidence, to reach their fullest potential.  To nurture a sense of empowerment, compassion and interconnectedness.  To provide students with the skills and tools they need to create the changes they wish to see within their lives and communities.  Modeling a class structure based on my training through Roots Tribe Yoga.

Empowering Women to Rise:  This yoga class is dedicated to women who have experienced any type of abuse, domestic violence, rape, or self-harm.  A class designed by Hummingbird Yoga through my own life experiences.  A time to allow healing from the inside out.  A time to express oneself through observation, taking part, resting quietly and being held in the awareness of community.  This class dedicates the last 15 minutes to open discussion, a time to build one another up, support the group as a whole, and find strength from the paths of others.  Family Safety Network is gifting women with this one hour class.  You may receive free passes to the class from the local FSN, located at:  120 N. 1st St. Driggs, 208-354-8058.

Restorative Yoga:  A restful, calming class including breathing, poses supported with blocks, straps, and yoga blankets.  With dedication to increase body awareness, rest, balance through the Chakras, and mindfulness.  Restorative yoga helps to reduce stress and rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit.  This is a perfect beginning yoga class that is also appropriate for those working with injury, limited mobility, pre-and post-natal, and for those who prefer a softer, gentler approach to yoga.  With guidance through imagery and reflection and the beautiful sounds of the singing bowls.

Gentle Flow/Restorative:  This class is a slow paced flow focusing on letting go of the day’s hard work.  The class will be both vinyasa and restorative by warming up the body and working through asanas (poses) for the first thirty minutes, followed by restorative poses during the second half of the class.   Come unwind and let go, deepen the breath and relax.  You’ll be bliss-ed out for the rest of the afternoon.  The temperature of the room is heated, with an elevated humidity level perfect for detoxing after a long day.  Again enjoying the beautiful sounds of the singing bowls during this class.

Hummingbird HIIT/Power Yoga/Core Strength:  The method used is in this class is Ashtanga yoga, an athletic flow combining strength, flexibility, and stamina for a complete practice.  This class is designed to strengthen the core, improve balance and posture, increase coordination, gain flexibility, and reduce stress.  Every exercise is performed with attention to breath, proper form, and efficient movement patterns.  The class is dedicated to helping you maintain strength in the lower back, abdominal region, glutes, and hips – all to improve your ability to stabilize your spine.  This core-focused workout includes isometric holds as well as timed repetition, with direction for proper alignment. Ending with a time of relaxation.

Anusara Yoga, Heart Opening/Heated Class:  This class is designed to improve posture, energy levels, balance, flexibility, and strength.  It has the intention to help you relax the mind, calm mental fluctuations, open the heart, lift your spirit, boost metabolism, and gain a stronger mind/body connection.  This practice will teach the art of patience through breath control and body alignment while you hold more challenging poses.  The session ends with time to relax, rest in the moment, and enjoy the effort you made for yourself.

Meditation for Stress Reduction:  This is a beginners meditation class, although anyone is welcome to attend even if you already have a meditation practice. In this class, we will demystify what meditation is, the different types of meditation and how it can fit in to your life where you actually look forward to doing it. We will also discuss the different stress triggers in life and some tools to best deal with that. This will be an experimental class so please bring a mat, cushion or low chair so you will be comfortable.
