Yoga That Transforms
S2S® Yoga is designed to train your body and mind through physical postures, breathing techniques, and relaxation. Each class incorporates principles of Hatha yoga that emphasizes both activity and balance. At S2S®, we believe in moderation and restoration. Our yoga class will compliment your workout regime by encouraging muscle lengthening and stability.
Each movement in class will be linked to your breathing, which will encourage you to inhale or exhale with each motion. To our “yogi’s”, this is what you know as Vinyasa-style flow. When performing in “Flow”, movements will be taught in a style that is continuous and dynamic.
All classes are appropriate for every fitness level, flexibility, and open to all ages. Great care is taken to modify each class to all participant’s current level regardless of their place in the fitness journey. Our studio room is bright and not heated, providing the best environment for you to train your body. This class will challenge not only your strength but also your stamina as you are encouraged to listen to your body. This inclusive environment encourages each individual to get out of their comfort zone and show up however they are TODAY.
What can I expect?
S2S encourages progress over perfection and loves sharing our passion for yoga with newcomers and experienced yogis. Our yoga instructors complete 200+ hours of yoga teacher training through a qualified academy.
How will this class benefit me?
S2S Yoga gives you the time and space for your muscles to breathe, lengthen, strengthen, and open, which prevents injury. Yoga, literally meaning union, is more than just about being flexible. Yoga encourages us to take a step back and reconnect with our bodies, challenging our misconceptions about what we can or cannot do. Cross training is essential for not only athletes, but for people of all fitness levels.
Who is yoga for?
Yoga is for everyone! We want to make sure you feel safe, comfortable, and are able to discuss any injuries or limitations before jumping into one of our group classes. We suggest at least a 20 minute demo with one of our yoga instructors or even an hour private session to make sure you are familiar with the format of the class. We will also go over any personal questions or modifications. All levels of flexibility are appropriate! Yoga isn’t just about being flexible, but our S2S Yoga class will definitely improve your range of motion, strength, and stamina.
How often should I do yoga?
How does being more flexible prevent injury and increase athletic performance?
When building muscle, you shorten your muscles and range of motion. Stretching helps to re-lengthen muscles, allowing the joints to work in a fuller range of motion. This decreases the risk of overuse injuries. Having a balance between strength and flexibility is crucial to enhancing athletic performance.
What do I need to bring?
Dress in comfortable clothes that you can easily bend and move in. We provide Manduka yoga mats, however feel free to bring your own! We also have yoga blocks, yoga straps and towels available.
