Yoga Classes at New Horizon Yoga
Yoga has its own language, and you may feel like you are listening to a foreign dialect if you’re new to the practice. Phrases like “sivananda yoga” and “svaroopa” are not self-explanatory. To help you navigate your way through the language of yoga, and find the right yoga class, here are the definitions to some of the most commonly used yoga terms.
Meditation is a key component to any yoga class. The quiet practice is often introduced at the beginning and end of our yoga classes. Meditation encourages a clearing of the mind and can bring about emotional healing and serenity.
Private sessions are a good option for beginner yoga students and advanced yogis alike. Your New Horizon Yoga instructor will help you align your body properly and pay special attention to the areas where you can improve your yoga mastery.
Vinyasa yoga is also called flow yoga. In this style, movements and poses are synchronized with the breath. Typically, upward movements are performed while inhaling and downward movements are performed while exhaling.
Anyone Can Be a Yogi
No matter what your level of fitness or flexibility, you can enjoy health and lifestyle benefits from practicing yoga at New Horizon Yoga. Many yoga poses -- or "asanas", as they are called in Sanskrit -- are fairly easy to do. Even the advanced asanas can often be modified to make them more accessible to the novice yogi. Classes exist for all skill levels at New Horizon Yoga, and we can accommodate students at all levels of fitness. Even if you have a medical concern, such as pregnancy or a previous injury, we can still work with you to tailor your yoga practice to your specific needs and keep your yoga practice safe.
