Gentle Yoga

Gentle Yoga is one term used by many to mean many things. Gentle Yoga can refer to a variety of types of yoga classes taught by teachers from various styles of yoga. In this era of the rapidly growing popularity of yoga, classes are springing up everywhere. If you are shopping around for a satisfying yoga class you’ll want to know whether you are going to fit in or be okay in a given class.  Gentle Yoga is often considered easier, less intense, non-strenuous, minimalistic, quiet, meditative, or restorative.  But these words that are intended to be descriptive can still seem broad and vague.

vinyasa YOGA

Vinyasa Yoga is a flowing, dynamic sequence of poses that is one of the most popular styles of yoga in the United States. Also sometimes called "Vinyasa Flow Yoga," this type of practice involves synchronizing the breath with a continuous flow of postures. The fluid, almost dance-like movements increase flexibility, strength, and stamina, as it calms the mind and improves overall health.

The literal translation of the Sanskrit word "vinyasa" is "to place in a certain way." It refers to a certain sequence of poses that are performed in a particular order. Today, it also refers to the style of yoga that focuses on breathing in conjunction with body movement.

YOGA unchained

Yoga Unchained is a facilitator training intensive in trauma-informed yoga practice co-founded by Dr. Jamie Marich and Jessica Sowers, RTY-200.

Both Jamie and Jessica discovered a great passion for sharing the practices of yoga and meditation in settings that are traditionally under served: For Jamie, treatment centers, clinical settings and the recovery community, For Jessica, correctional settings and in community health. Although Jamie and Jessica both received specialized training in trauma-informed yoga, both felt that a dynamic experiential component was missing from their training in this area, thus Yoga Unchained was born.
