YogaYoga is a powerful and highly effective fitness regimen that promotes relaxation, restoration, and overall health. At LivAwareMD, a variety of yoga classes and programs soothe your spirit, mind and body, and help you on your journey to wellness. Private or small group classes can be scheduled for those with a specific focus in mind: yoga for beginners, therapeutic and restorative yoga, meditative yoga for stress management, and yoga geared toward the relief of chronic pain and back pain. Regularly scheduled weekly classes include:
- Gentle Yoga - Explore the ancient healing practice of yoga, combining body, mind, and spirit in this gentle, beginner-focused class. Instructor Karri Bukant has been teaching yoga for over nine years. All levels are welcome. Participants should be able to move from lying down to a standing position without assistance. Although yoga is known for promoting healthy backs, participants should already possess good back health. The first four weeks are free. $10/class thereafter.
- Vinyasa Yoga – Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized movement,” and Vinyasa yoga is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling. Vinyasa movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like, which explains why it is sometimes referred to as Vinyasa Flow or just Flow. This flow class is action-packed to make sure you tap into each major muscle group of your body. Moving through a combination of standing and seated postures, you will lengthen the muscles that tend to tighten during long hours of sitting. Open to all levels. Modifications will be demonstrated for beginners, while seasoned practitioners are welcome to express their practice to its fullest.
- Athletic Yoga – Set to mellow, modern music, these classes integrate movement, strength, and breathing work to help athletes excel. While designed with athletes in mind, anyone interested in improving balance, flexibility, stamina, and power through yoga can benefit from these classes.
