Yoga for Fertility

Yoga for fertility can greatly increase your chances of getting pregnant because it increases relaxation, blood flow to the reproductive organs (improving egg and sperm quality) and creates a sense of peace and well being. Executing specific yoga for fertility poses will definitely help you conceive faster. Also, once pregnant, yoga can help you through your pregnancy increase flexibility and tone your muscles to prepare you for childbirth.

    Yoga for fertility is mostly recommended to women, but very few know that this form of exercise can actually increase sperm quality, sperm count and sperm motility in men. Yoga for men helps decrease stress levels that affects male erectile dysfunction and impotence. Practicing yoga is beneficial to both partners when trying to conceive.

    This is a special yoga course which includes a yoga practice plus a discussion of all things that could help you on this journey.

    As infertility is a sensitive issue,  this class creates a place for friendship, support and communication with others facing the same issues.

     This class is also great if you are newly pregnant and have a history of miscarriage. Gentle relaxed, movements to help de-stress and tools to help with past trauma, current fears and create and sustain a healthy atmosphere for development.

Prenatal Yoga

Pregnancy comes with its problems-backaches, morning sickness and shortness of breath, to name a few. If you're looking for a way to ease these symptoms, you need look no further than yoga. Regular yoga practice will help not only your body, but your mind as well -- and it offers a chance to meet other mothers-to-be. Yoga is a perfect fit for pregnancy, It helps prepare the body for birth and helps you recover afterward.

With regular yoga practice, you will strengthen and stretch your muscles, preparing your body for birth.  Creating alignment through the body to aid in proper fetal positioning for a smooth quick labour. You will also improve postural alignment, helping to prevent backache due to the added weight of the baby and larger breasts. Other physical benefits include better circulation and breathing. Through practicing yoga and meditation, you will improve your focus and learn to relax during labour as well as to cope with any stress that arises, whether during pregnancy or after the baby is born.

Mom & Baby Yoga

These classes are geared to helping mom release the tension, recover the stretch out abs, lost posture and tight neck and shoulders due to carrying and nursing. While working to relax and de-stress the body, mind and spirit and connect with other moms. This class is geared to accommodate  newborn babies  up to crawling. Yoga poses will incorporate holding, rocking and playing with your baby as well as practice with him/her next to you.  As well as moving baby through some yoga too! Typical return to activity quidelines is 6 weeks postpartum and as everyone has a different birth experience your readiness to return to activity is the bigger indication than the age of your baby to when you can begin the class. A green light from your medical care provider is a must. Note: Crawling/Walking babies are welcome to come and are free to explore the room but as they tend to be drawn to the other babies you may spend more time refereeing than practicing.

 

Yoga for Backs

Yoga for backs class is based off of the principles of Critical Alignment Therapy ie C.A.T  (Gert van Leeuwen). This practice uses specialized props and techniques to release tension from your back, neck, and shoulders. Once tension is released we can begin to create new patterns of movement and strengthen the deep core and back muscles. This class is suitable for all experience levels and is especially beneficial for people with chronic pain/ tension/ injury, people who work at a desk or doing physical labour, people with injuries, or anyone else looking to release back tension and improve their posture. Our Yoga Den classes use felt pads, black foam straps and bolsters as the props. 

Hatha

Hatha Yoga is the traditional approach to yoga. Ha =Sun Tha= moon and focuses on the balancing of the solar & lunar energies. The energetic movement through the breath and through the body. A non-flow based  classical yoga practice of the asanas (poses). Including Pranayama (breath work) and  meditation. All levels of experience welcome!

Taught by Kimberley Sattelmeier

Vinyasa

Power vinyasa yoga presents you with a healthy, challenging workout that will make you strong and stress-free. The main goal of power vinyasa is to build and maintain physical and spiritual vitality, not to wrap your legs behind your head (though this can occur).

Using a one breath -one movement flow and a clear curriculum we will create a solid physical base and an intellectual understanding of yoga poses, breath and physical alignment. In increments, you'll build strength, focus, stamina and flexibility.

All you need is to focus on letting go, sweating, breathing, moving, and respecting your limitations. Power vinyasa is a strategic, but soulful approach that makes a challenging yoga flow accessible to everyone, regardless of age, experience, or background.

All classes have a  small class size and are customized to the needs and desires of the students. A multi-level class that allows all levels and abilities to find a place within the practice that works for them!

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga has the same goals and objectives as any other school of yoga; however,  Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice.

Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.

While initially, this style of yoga can seem quite boring, passive, or soft, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from one to twenty minutes! Yin and yang tissues respond quite differently to being exercised. You need to experience this to really know what Yin Yoga is all about. After you have experienced it, even just once, you will realize that you have been doing only half of the asana practice.

Please note: Yin Yoga is not restorative yoga. Like all yoga practices, if the tissues you are targeting for exercise are damaged in some way, please give yourself a chance to heal before resuming your regular practice.

75 minute class

Chair Yoga

75 minutes classes

This class invites students to explore yoga at their own pace while setting poses into proper alignment.  Self awareness and self-acceptance are the keys to finding the balance between two much and too little effort in each pose.  Chair yoga is an integrated and holistic popular practice designed to meet the needs of body types that are challenging (frozen shoulder) to those being challenged (body building).  This popular practice offers modifications to meet individual needs through positioning the body, focusing the mind, and calming the breath.  Deep relaxation is the rewarding end to this class, through a lengthy Shavasana, or deep relaxation pose.
