Through the practice of yoga, we can learn to hear our inner guidance. When we slow down, pay attention, and check in with our body as we hold a particular yoga pose, we soon notice that helpful messages come to us frequently – through physical sensations, flashes of insight, and intuitive feelings.
Whether you want to discover or hone your inner wisdom, are new to the practice, want a healthier lifestyle, freedom from pain, or something else, Go Within Yoga will teach you in a comfortable, non-intimidating environment.
Types of Yoga and the Benefits
YIN YOGA focuses on and stretches the connective tissue between the muscles and fascia. The poses are held longer, up to five minutes, and are passive, meaning you relax your muscles and allow the pose to happen.
- Calms and relaxes the mind and body
- Reduces stress and anxiety
- Releases fascia and improves joint mobility
HATHA YOGA includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body. It is relatively gentle, slow and the poses are held for thirty to forty-five seconds.
- Stress reliever
- Helps you focus
- Builds muscle strength and improves balance
VINYASA is a flowing, dynamic sequence of poses where the breath, Ujjayi Pranayama, is synchronized with a continuous flow of postures, creating a link between breath and movement.
- It stills the mind to train on many focal points: breath, movement, postures, sequences
- Helps release blockages of energy flow
- Decreases stress, anxiety, and depression
CHAKRA YOGA is the practice of using yoga postures and controlled breath, known as pranayama, to cleanse, balance, and open the chakras of the body.
- Cleanse and balance the chakra system
- Helps sharpen the mind while balancing and opening chakras
- Promotes deeper relaxation and opening of body
