For those who know how to and willingly will modify poses to suit their experience level and comfort. </p><p> Level 2/3: For yogis who are intermediates and up who are able to safely work into backbends &amp; inversions such </p><p> as Bridge Pose and Headstand.</p><p>Vinyasa Vinyasa-based classes link breath and movement for a moving meditation. Poses are generally held for a shorter period of time so that transitions may become part of the poses themselves. This allows for more poses to be practiced during a class. Generally, our vinyasa classes are more rigorous than what we term hatha classes and may involve sun salutations. AshtangaVinyasa (and all YTG -Vinyasa)Slow FlowUrban FlowJivamukti</p><p>HathaOur hatha-based classes generally involve holding the poses for a longer period of time to allow for more exploration of breath within a pose. This allows more time for focus on alignment. </p><p>Anusara Aerial YogaBig A#%! YogaMi-anYin Yoga RestorativeTwilight YogaYoga for FlexibilityYoga for Back Strength</p><p>Tantric yoga is the original yoga of ancient India in which all other styles of yoga are rooted. Tantra literally translates to extend beyond all limitations. Tantra class pays special attention to the whole person and works to intentionally help you move energy in a productive and clear direction, detoxify your body and mind, build your inner fire and through sequences that are both dynamic (repetitive and moving) and static (still), and help you create space and strength in your physical body while you gain a better sense of clarity and peace of mind. Pranayama (breath work) is the cornerstone of the practice.</p><p>ANU...SHTANGA..MUKTI...ASANAAAAA?! </p><p>CLASS STYLES DECRYPTEDAlthough Hatha Yoga technically encompasses all physical practices of yoga, over time the yoga tree has sprouted many physical variations. YCM welcomes all styles of yoga, so in order to help you find your best fit, we loosely categorize the styles we offer so even if youre not familiar with the specific tradition or practice, you will have a better sense of what to expect in class. Specific class descriptions are available online.</p><p>DROP-IN CLASS SCHEDULE?Our weekly class schedule can be found at www.yogacentermpls.com.By checking the schedule online, you see up-to-date changes and substitute teachers.
