CLASSES

Elev8'd Yoga combines Yoga with other forms of movement, such as dance, Pilates and gymnastics, into a hybrid mind-body experience. Using a silk hammock, students are guided through a series of movements and Yoga sequences, flowing through each pose letting your breath guide you, creating a sense of mindfulness, playfullness, and well-being as you stretch out and open up both the body, mind, and heart.

Elev8'd yoga is particularly good for the back and stretching out the spine, and some of its other benefits include decreasing stress and anxiety, increasing strength and flexibility of muscles, as well as mobility of the joints. One of the main benefits of Elev8'd Yoga however, is the inversions, which includes what is called a Zero-Compression Inversion of the spine, which both stretches out and re-aligns the vertebrae without strain, relieves pressure and hydrates vertebral disks, and refreshes the circulatory, lymphatic, and digestive systems. Also increases overall agility and kinaesthetic awareness, allows for advanced inversions and postures without back or neck compression, as well as an increased sense of presence, and mind-body awareness.

-Please wear a short or long sleeve shirt, or something that covers your underarms, for both comfort and sanitary reasons.

- Please bring your own water bottle for hydration

- Please arrive minimum 10 minutes early to get checked in and measured out your hammock.

Majority of the class time will be spent sitting or lying on the mat. Initially this class can appear “simple” and passive, but it is known to be quite challenging due to the long duration of the postures. Each posture will be held in stillness approximately 3-5 minutes. This allows your muscles time to relax, dedicating the practice to your ligaments, bones & joints which get little attention in every day movement, exercise or yoga. This practice is growing to be more and more popular with athletes, experienced and beginner yogis and even people with restricted mobility.
