Time:  10:00 - 11:30 pm
Fee:  $20 (includes gst)

This workshop introduces some important concepts and basics of back anatomy combined with breathing technique in selected yoga poses to see how this can affect supporting a healthy low back and injury prevention.  This introductory workshop will discuss the importance of accessing our deep stabilizing muscles, the value of muscle relaxation and modifying/sequencing poses for a healthy back and a safe, effective practice.

Namaskar Yoga Studio 615 2nd Avenue North Saskatoon
Time:  10:00 - 12:30 pm

Yoga poses benefit many functions and parts of the body but only if we are balanced and correctly aligned when we practice them.   This practical and interactive workshop explores using the wall to assist in training proper alignment in the poses. It includes introductory discussion and lots of opportunity to learn and practice in a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment.  All levels are welcome.

Yoga Class Descriptions


Beginner and Gentle Yoga:  For those who are new to yoga and looking for a place to start learning the basic poses, and also for those who would like to continue to focus on the basic poses, breathing, stretching, strengthening and relaxation in a comfortable, non-judgmental atmosphere, and at your own pace.
*
All Levels:   The teacher will give options and modifications for you to adapt the level of your practice to what feels best for you on each day.  
*
Beginner and All Levels:  This 45 minute class will be run at the Beginner Level with options also given for more experience yogis.
*
All Levels Power:  This is a fitness/power class suited to all levels, practicing basic poses with extra focus on fitness and strengthening the upper body and core muscles, followed by stretching and relaxation.  Be prepared to sweat.
* 
Active Vinyasa Flow:  This class will maintain a steady flowing yoga workout for a balance of muscle flexibility, strengthening and stamina, with focus on flowing through our pose sequences, uniting movement with breath.   Participants should be familiar with basic pose technique to move into and transition out of each pose with safe technique and alignment. Variations and options will be given for each pose and transition so participants can work at their own desired pace and style.
*

Yin Yoga:  Yin yoga practice targets tendons, ligaments and fascia within the body. Each posture is held for long periods of time to encourage slow and safe opening of connective tissues. A perfect antidote to stress and a great counter balance to more active styles of yoga.  Yin yoga classes involve a relaxed practice of floor postures that are held from three to five minutes at a time. Although Yin yoga is a more passive practice it can be quite challenging due to the length of time postures are held.  Open to all levels of students.  Please note this is not a Restorative Yoga class. 
*
Intermediate to Advanced Yoga:
A strong working knowledge and experience with the basic poses is required.  We will be working into intermediate and advanced inversions and back bends; adding challenging variations for strength, flexibility and balance, and also some new poses.  Students will be encouraged to make choices to develop their yoga practice at their own pace.

*** 

New to Yoga?

Here is some information that may be helpful
- Wear bare feet and loose comfortable clothing.  Longer shorts and a t-shirt are fine.
- If you do not have a yoga mat yet, the studio has mats available for you to borrow.  The studio also provides yoga blocks and straps that you may wish to use.
- It is best not to practice yoga on a full stomach.
- Drinking water an hour or so before the yoga class will help you to not become thirsty during class.  However, you can still bring a water bottle with you if you wish.
- Please do not chew gum during class.  This can interfere with breathing, distract the other students, and possibly be a safety hazard in some poses. 

In consideration for your fellow participants:
- Some people arrive early to class to relax or meditate.  Please talk quietly before class so as not to disturb the other students.
- We all try to be on time for class, but if you are late and class has started, please come into the studio quietly.
- Some people are very allergic scents.  Please do not wear perfume to class.
- Please try to remember to turn off your cell phone before class.  However, if you need to leave your phone on because you are "on call" - just let the teacher know before class.
