Take one of our heated VinVersion Yoga® flows (75 minutes) and melt into an un-heated VinYin Yoga® flow (75 minutes) directly after. Vinyasa + Yin = VinYin Yoga®
Experience an un-heated Yin Yoga class where the teacher will always accommodate subtle Sun Salutations prior to a soothing Yin Yoga class (75 minutes). Sun Salutations + Yin = VinYin Yoga®
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures – or asanas – that are held for longer periods of time. For beginners it may range from 45 seconds to two minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more. Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.
Un-Heated VinVersion Yoga® is derived from Hatha Yoga which encompasses all types of yoga. “Hatha” is Sanskrit for “forceful”, the ancient Indian language, where most yoga terminology comes from.
Modern Hatha yoga classes are slower paced with less flow between poses. This allows for time to focus on relaxation and the Pranayama breathing techniques taught during these classes. Our un-heated classes will introduce optional inversions when appropriate and will prepare you for our advanced VinVersion Yoga® in the hot room.
FreedOM Flow is not your basic yoga class and always a crowd pleaser. This type of yoga class is perfect for advanced yoga practitioners and other yoga teachers. The music is loud and intense and the good vibe tribe is high. This class is a minimal instruction flow. Therefore students are required to have a general understanding of their own bodies, poses and our studios class styles. Bring it on hOMies … It’s the #hOMeTeamAdvantage!
Introduction to Yoga
Introduction to Flow
Optional inversion-infused Power Vinyasa Yoga – VinVersion Yoga® is derived from Power Yoga which focuses on a fitness based Vinyasa styling.
This encompasses the benefits of movement with breath and meditation in motion, including the building of internal heat, increase of stamina and flexibility, as well as reducing your body’s stress. This class is more personalized by teachers, for they will design their own sequence of postures. Students use this time to synchronize their breathing and movements. All classes will follow proper protocol to open your body. This is NOT an All-Levels class.
* What is radiant heat?
Radiant heat is what you feel when heat transfers from a warm surface to a cooler surface.
* What is convection heat?
Convection heat is what you feel from air heated by warm air furnaces, heat pumps, and baseboards. The warm air is distributed mechanically or through natural convection.
* Why is radiant heat better than convection heat?
1) Long wave radiant energy is the most efficient form of heat transfer.
2) Radiant heat is healthy, comfortable heat.
3) Airborne dust, pollen, and germs are reduced by the elimination of blowing air.
4) Building air pressurization losses are minimized and relative humidity is unaffected.
* Why is heat from the ceiling best, doesn’t heat rise?
Ceiling placement eliminates obstructions to radiant heat transfer. Actually heat doesn’t rise, it’s hot air that rises, creating natural convection like that from baseboard heaters and other warmer surfaces. So, the ceiling is best.
* Will the Yoga room floor be warm if heat is on the ceiling?
Yes, radiant energy creates heat when it strikes the floor and furnishings, and the warmed surfaces reradiate heat, thereby warming the air.
* Just how does radiant heat feel?
Radiant heat is sun like warmth: natural, silent, draft-less, odorless.
