What Is Yoga?
Yoga is the process by which you get out of your head and into your body. By using a series of physical postures and your breath, you can develop an intimate understanding of the many different aspects of yourself. Yoga develops a personal awareness of your physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual states and helps unify them. Yoga is a deeply personal experience: you create your practice and in turn learn about yourself. Come find out why yogis look so radiant and alive.
Who Can Practice Yoga?
Everyone and anyone can practice yoga. Whether you can stand on your head or barely bend over towards your toes, we PROMISE that you can practice yoga. You need not come with strength, flexibility, experience or spirituality. You do not even have to come with willingness or an open mind. Just show up and discover how awesome it is to have a place where you can be YOU.
Type of Yoga
At Leap we offer various styles of yoga to accommodate EVERY BODY. Vinyasa, Yin, and Kaiut Yoga are the main three styles we teach (although we also offer Prenatal Yoga, Slow Flow, Mindfulness Flow, and Ashtanga Yoga).
Vinyasa is a practice that links breath with movement through various yoga postures. Vinyasa is an active and invigorating yoga practice. Yin Yoga offers a different experience. Practitioners hold postures for longer periods of time supported by props like bolsters, blankets, and blocks, to open the body; less muscle work and more focus on releasing tension through the connective tissue. Kaiut Yoga is a practice with a focus on shoulders, hips, knees, ankles, wrist and finger joints. The practice uses muscular work to bring circulation and an openness to these joints for biomechanical health and increased mobility in life’s activities.
