WHAT STYLES OF YOGA
DOES BRIGHT PATH YOGA TEACH?
A lot depends on the capabilities or special limitations of the class, but in general we teach these styles:
Vinyasa − A breath-synchronized form of yoga that moves from one posture to the next in a flowing sequence. The pace may be slow or fast depending on the capabilities and limitations of the class. The benefits of the sequence include building strength and flexibility throughout the body as well as increasing breathing capacity.
Yin Yoga − Unlike the traditional dynamic "yang" yoga that focuses primarily on muscle tissue, yin yoga works with the calmer, cooler "yin" side − the connective tissues of the body, such as fascia, tendons and ligaments − through long held poses, usually five minutes or longer. Yin yoga targets release primarily in the low back, the hips and the pelvic area.
Yoga with Props ("Iyengar-inspired") − We focus on alignment and the use of props − straps, blocks, bolsters, yoga blankets, chairs, and walls − to help students ease into the pose and create an optimally structured alignment. Props also allow weak or fatigued students or those with illnesses to enjoy poses through "supports" that require less muscular effort.
Restorative Yoga − This calm and easy style of yoga uses props for restful and relaxing poses that are held for several minutes each. Restorative yoga helps to trigger the parasympathetic nervous system, the autonomic body control that slows heart rate, relaxes the muscles and generates an overall feeling of well-being.
