Yoga at Absolute Balance
Yoga classes at Absolute Balance are designed to create a health-giving exercise for mind, body, and soul. Irregular alignment and imbalance within the body can create stress and strain which lead to injury and discomfort. The physical, mental, and emotional practice of yoga can begin to correct imbalances, misalignment, and sometimes ease discomfort. For those seeking stress relief, the physical practice of yoga prepares the body, particularly the nervous system, for stillness which allows the mind to calm.
Using an emphasis on yoga posture alignment, our yoga classes are designed to stretch all parts of the body and utilize your body's full range of motion. Employing verbal instruction, demonstration techniques, and permissible adjustment, students are encouraged to practice with complete focus and awareness of body movement. As one practices with such concentration stress levels will gradually decrease.
Before each class take the time to know where your body is at and give 100% effort based on where you are that day. Giving your best effort enhances your experience and those practicing with you.
All classes are taught by certified yoga instructors. All levels are welcome!
The yoga room is intended to provide practitioners with a calm and peaceful environment before, during, and after class. Please observe the following guidelines in order to maintain a positive experience for everyone. Keep in mind, some may not make sense now but as your practice matures you will better appreciate the meaning behind their intention.
- Once settled in the room, lie quietly in savasana.
- Leave all personal belongings in the cubbies provided. All you need is you, a mat, and water.
- No cell phones in the yoga room.
- Be on time. Those that have arrived on time deserve to practice with minimal disruption.
- Stay for the duration of class. Leaving before class is finished disturbs the flow of class.
- Know your actions affect everyone else in the room.
- Practice based on where your body is at today. Every day is different; honor where you are and give each posture your best effort.
- Rest whenever you need to.
- Wear comfortable clothing that allows your body to stretch.
* It is best to practice yoga on an empty stomach. Avoid eating a full meal two to three hours before practicing. If you need a bit of something before class try a piece of fruit. Over time you will learn what is best for you.
