Yoga

“Yoga is like music. The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind and the harmony of the soul creates the symphony of life.”

-B.K.S. Iyengar

What is yoga?

Yoga dates back thousands of years, but no one knows exactly when yoga began. The system of yoga is built on three main practices: asana (physical postures/exercises), pranayama (breathing), and dhyana (meditation). Asana are designed to correct imbalances, injury, and weaknesses in the body. Pranayama is based on the concept that breath is the source of life in the body, and so one gently refines breath control to improve the health and function of both body and mind. Asana and pranayama together are intended to prepare the body and mind for dhyana so on can find an easy approach to a quiet mind, allowing healing from everyday stress.

There are many styles of yoga practices.

All yoga classes at Longevita are intended for all levels. Instructors are able to provide props and modifications to help meet the needs of individual students. We offer variety among our yoga classes including Hatha, flow, sculpt, restorative, and Yoga Nidra meditation.

Hatha: time is spent holding each posture, refining alignment and building endurance

Flow: series of postures linked together with fluid transitions, focussed on moving in synch with the rhythm of the breath

Sculpt: flow-style sequences meet free weights and resistance bands for increased muscle strengthening

Restorative: very long-held, supported postures, allowing time for body and mind to rest deeply

Yoga Nidra: a restorative asana practice followed by a guided meditation

  • Arrive 10 – 15 minutes before your first class to complete some paperwork (or you can download the Student Registration Form and bring it with you).
  • Introduce yourself to the instructor and communicate any pre-existing medical issues or concerns you might have.
  • Dress comfortably. Classes are all barefoot.
  • Avoid Perfume. Please help us maintain a fragrance-free environment.
  • A light stomach will help ensure you are more comfortable in class.
  • Come well-hydrated to any warm or hot yoga class. The temperature of our hot room is carefully managed by a programmed thermostat; however, being dehydrated at the start of class can make the room feel much warmer than it actually is as a dehydrated body has more challenge cooling itself than when the body is well hydrated.
  • All props needed for any class are available at the studio. We encourage you to bring your own mat; however, there are yoga mats and towels (for hot classes) available for rent.
  • Check in, take off your shoes, and turn off your cell phone. There is space in the studio to safely store your personal belongings.

All yoga classes at Longevita are intended for all levels. In Hatha or flow-style classes, instructors may also incorporate opportunities for inversions and arm balances, developing your practice on a new level – whether practicing full inversions and arm balances, or working on preparatory postures and strength building for future inversions and arm balances in your practice. Please note inversions and arm balances may not be suitable for pregnant clients, or those with certain chronic neck, shoulder, or back injuries or certain heart conditions. Please speak with the teacher before class regarding these circumstances.

Non-heated yoga classes at Longevita are typically held in Studio A with an ambient temperature of 68-73 degrees. Warm yoga classes will be held in the Hot Room with the thermostat set to 85-90 degrees. Hot yoga classes will be held in the Hot Room with the thermostat set to 102-107 degrees. Please note that hot (or even warm) yoga classes may not be suitable for pregnant clients or those with a history of heat exhaustion. Please speak with the teacher before class regarding these circumstances.

Longevita offers heated Hatha yoga classes; however, we are not a Bikram Hot Yoga studio. While Bikram created a very popular hot yoga class around the world involving a strict 26-posture sequence, it is important to note that this is just one example of Hatha-style practice. Hatha is not limited to being a Bikram style of class. Teachers at Longevita may teach a Hatha class similar to the Bikram sequence, but are not restricted to using only this style of Hatha practice.

Each teacher at Longevita brings their own unique style, background and tradition to their class, which provides diversity to your yoga practice. To learn more about each of our teachers, click here.
