Beginner Yoga provides a foundation of the yoga practice for the brand new student or the practiced student looking to reconnect with the basics. Beginner yoga is not flow-style yoga but slow and intentional movement through various asanas.
Vinyasa Yoga is flow yoga; poses are linked together. Vinyasa in Sanskrit means “to place in a special way”. The postures are a gradual progression from one asana to the next and the movements are linked with the breath.
Hot/Warm Yoga is vinyasa yoga in a infrared heated room heated to anywhere from 90-102 degrees.
Slow Flow Yoga is vinyasa yoga moving at a slower pace and holding poses for a longer amount of time.
Yin Yoga is a very slow paced yoga where asanas (postures) are held anywhere from 3-5 minutes. The stretching is of the tendons, fascia and ligaments rather than the muscles. The benefits are improved circulation and flexibility. Yin is a very meditative yoga practice.
Restorative Yoga is designed to completely relax the body. It consists of about 5 or 6 postures reclined and supported with props such as blankets, blocks, bolsters, sand bags, and eye pillows. Restorative yoga is very relaxing and meditative. Read more about restorative in a blog called Repairing from Stress by one of URU’s yin and restorative instructors.
Aerial Yoga is yoga in the aerial silk swings. Please reserve your swing if you would like to attend an aerial class.
Kids Yoga is fun and playful yoga for children. At URU by the airport, kids can try yoga in the silks with Rebecca Sathre. At URU Gulf Breeze, kids yoga is taught by Jill Cicero (of Ever’man Story Sprouts) and includes stories, games and partner yoga.
