Critical Alignment Therapy / Align Your Spine
Perhaps not as well known as the other forms of yoga on this page but no less amazing. Focusing on the alignment and stability of the spine and pelvis. Specific props are used to get deep into the spine. Like Yin, a therapeutic style of yoga that can produce immense relief of tension and back pain. Unlike Yin, this practice involves active poses with muscle engagement in order to build awareness and strength in the body to reinforce proper alignment and stability.
These can be some of the most challenging and relaxing classes I have ever taken. Sometimes I think I sound like one of those TV infomercials when I talk about this practice, but it really is that effective!
Vinyasa / Flow
My first practice. Energetic and strong. I teach a multi-level class open to yogis of any experience. Warm and sweaty with good music and plenty of fun. Plenty of options and plenty of opportunity to challenge your practice. Not only do we flow but there is plenty of time given to practicing and instructing more difficult poses and transitions in a safe and fun way. Build strength and balance in your practice.
Fun upside down and in balance with another. Learn to find your inner play all over again! I teach 3 levels of acroyoga from the beginner to the advanced. I also run a professional performance group and am an active member of the Saskatoon performing arts community. Acro is for everyone, all ages, shapes, and sizes. My goal is to make it accessible and fun for everyone. We currently offer 3 different levels of classes, something for everyone!
Slow and stretchy. At least that is the typical idea of a Yin practice. Certainly its an important part. Yin seems, initially at least, to be a physical practice. Long deep holds that push the body into stretching fascia, aka connective tissue. It works too. If you're stiff chances are a Yin practice can help you open up. Yet there is much more to a Yin practice. Quiet contemplation and meditation slowly begin to seep into your practice as we hold these long deep physical poses. Come to stretch ... stay for peace of mind.
