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

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.

This summer, you will find new classes on the schedule. We are working to improve our yoga program for you because we know that offering you better classes can make your practice something that really helps you be your best. Better Yoga. Better You.

We suggest these guidelines for choosing the class to fit you best.

 

For those who are pregnant, we do offer prenatal yoga as well as Mom & Baby yoga.

For those who are working through chronic pain or recovering from long term injury, we suggest contacting the studio to book private sessions prior to attending any mixed-level group classes.


We offer variety among our mixed-level group yoga classes:

Fundamentals[+]

Time is spent holding each posture, refining alignment and building endurance

Flow[+]

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

Power Flow[+]

Sequences of postures flowing together with fluid transitions plus some challenging holds for strength-building and opportunities to incorporate arm balances and inversions

Gentle[+]

Slow-paced sequences influenced by the Viniyoga tradition that is known for therapeutic yoga

Restorative[+]

A sequence of very long-held, supported postures, allowing time for body and mind to rest deeply

Yoga Nidra[+]

This is a restorative asana practice followed by a guided meditation

Intermediate Yoga[+]

Sequences with minimalist queuing are designed to offer an experienced yoga practitioner the opportunity for an intermediate level group practice. This class is intended to move beyond asana and will include pranayama and meditation. (Note: Teacher permission and pre-booking are required. Contact the studio for further information.)

 

 


Some important things to know about Longevita’s yoga classes:

Hot, Warm & Non-heated Classes[+]

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 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 incorporate longer held poses common in hatha-style practices, but are not restricted to using only the Bikram style of hatha practice.

Inversions & Arm Balances[+]

Most yoga classes at Longevita are intended for all levels. In flow, power flow, or intermediate yoga classes instructors may include opportunities to practice 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.

Intermediate Yoga[+]

Longevita now offers Intermediate Yoga. This is a class intended for those who have completed a 200-hour YTT, or those who have established a consistent weekly yoga practice at Longevita for at least 9 consecutive months. This class assumes practitioners are already familiar with pose names and alignment, and is designed to offer opportunities to incorporate pranayama and meditation along with yoga poses. This is not a drop-in class. Teacher permission is required. Please call the studio at (253)249-7456 to inquire about booking a space in this particular class.

Diverse Traditions[+]

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.
