Yoga instructors help participants flow from one pose to the next, coordinating breath flow with movement. Vinyasa perfectly aligns with Pilates — the routine practice can increase muscle strength, endurance, and flexibility, plus it can reduce levels of stress by helping participants learn to “stay in the moment”.
Fitness-based yoga influenced by both Vinyasa and Ashtanga styles. This practice builds internal heat to increase stamina, strength, flexibility, and decrease stress. This is more intense than Vinyasa yoga with fewer poses that are held longer. The classroom will be heated slightly.
Restorative Yoga allows students to Relax and Release the body into a gentle stretch, each stretch lasting up to 10 minutes. Restorative is a Gentle, Passive style of Yoga that helps to quiet the Parasympathetic System, as well as the Nervous System.
Infrared Hot Yoga
In addition to the multiple benefits of Yoga, Hot Yoga at Core Fusion Pilates + Yoga uses infrared heat (instead of forced air heat) to provide a therapeutic, deep-penetrating, detoxifying form of heat that expels toxins, heavy metals, and pollutants from the body. Besides increasing blood flow into the muscles and eliminating toxins through healthy sweat, practicing Yoga in a heated room reduces the need for lengthy warm-up poses, allowing participants to increase the benefits of their Yoga Practice.
AntiGravity® Aerial Yoga
Aerial yoga is a new, exciting, and FUN form of fitness with the support of a silk hammock. The hammock is super strong and can hold the weight of a baby elephant – over 3,000 pounds! There are numerous benefits of taking an Antigravity yoga class such as: increasing muscular flexibility, core strengthening, increasing joint mobility, and helping with flexibility by doing some of the work for us as well as giving us the resistance we need to tone the body. Aerial yoga uses moves and poses derived from dance, Pilates, yoga, and calisthenics with the hammock to increase strength, flexibility and decompression of the spinal column. Using a hammock also allows one to become more aware of the body’s alignment, and the body’s proprioceptors (sensory receptors) in other words, it allows you to have a “sense of self”.
“In order to fly, first you must be willing to let go!”
