Yoga

ecce yoga promotes physical and mental wellness through the practice of yoga, an ancient yet accessible method of bringing calm and connection to our lives, promoting both physical and mental well-being.

Vinyasa yoga, a system of linking breath with movement, cleanses and strengthens the body as well as calms the mind, creating a deeper level of concentration and greater self-awareness.

Gentle/restorative yoga allows us to relax and connect more deeply by practicing gentle sequences that renew the body and spirit and by doing supported postures that enable us to restore.

Prenatal yoga introduces movement, breath awareness, relaxation and meditation into the pregnancy and birth journey. It also helps prepare women for labor, delivery and early motherhood.

PRENATAL YOGA

Making the journey into motherhood is indeed a beautiful experience but it can also be disorienting and intimidating. For many women, pregnancy not only challenges the body but also the mind and emotions. By incorporating prenatal yoga into your life you can move through the transition with greater ease, compassion and confidence. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced yogi, the practice is hugely beneficial during pregnancy and can help you feel more connected and present. We work to open the hips and create more space in the pelvis, find greater openness in the chest and shoulders, and strengthen the legs, feet, and back. We spend time preparing for labor and delivery by working in various labor positions and learning important comfort measures. No matter what your birth plan is, it is an opportunity to be in your body, experience the fullness of pregnancy, and feel more connected to your growing baby and other mothers-to-be.

NIA

Beginning this fall at ecce yoga we will be offering a Tuesday evening Nia (pronounced nee-ah) class taught by certified instructor Rita Olson. Nia is a movement and lifestyle practice. Nia offers a fun, creative opportunity for health and well-being regardless of age or physical condition. The Nia philosophy is “Through movement we find health.“  We cultivate fitness, health, and well-being. Practiced barefoot to music, each person is invited to move at his or her own level of intensity, adapting the moves to their body potential at any given moment. While delivering cardiovascular, whole-body conditioning, Nia creates a loving relationship with one’s own body.

TUESDAYS
5:30-6:30pm
Begins Tues Sept 9th
