Garden of the Heart Yoga Center’s teachers all have extensive experience in alignment techniques, hands-on adjustments and progressive sequencing. Classes are taught in a progressive style, with each week’s classes building on poses taught the previous week. Over the course of a month, each level class works toward a pinnacle pose, to help you grow and expand into the fullness of the practice of yoga. You will receive individualized adjustments in the poses to facilitate your understanding and learning.
Rather than moving students quickly from pose to pose, the teaching style at Garden of the Heart is slower and more descriptive. Teachers guide how to safely get in and out of each posture, paying attention to alignment, breath, biomechanics, and energy. Classes are often taught with a theme, to help bring you into your heart as well as into your body, creating a positive, uplifting, non-competitive atmosphere. Modifications are frequently suggested for students with pain, injury, or physical limitations, making yoga truly accessible to everyone. Props are used in nearly every class to provide safety, prevent injury, and create ease in the postures.
All are welcome at the Garden of the Heart, from brand new beginners to advanced practitioners. Garden of the Heart Yoga Center is also recognized as an RYS-200 school for training yoga teachers.
