I currently have a class card, what happens with it, if I participate in the Ignite your Practice: 21 in 31?
We will extend the expiry of your class card by 30 days.
If I take a class elsewhere, would it count towards my 21 classes?
To participate in the Ignite Your Practice: 21 in 31, all 21 classes must be taken in studio at The Valley Om.
I haven’t come to yoga in a really long time. Is this for me?
Absolutely this is for you if you are willing and wanting to commit to the practice and learn.
How do I figure out which classes are right for me?
We offer 23 regular classes a week at a variety of times to meet the needs of your schedule, which include:
-Daily Practice: Move into your day with a full spectrum flow designed to awaken your body, focus your mind and supercharge your energy.
-Yoga: These classes are open to all levels of experience and cater to those who might be seeking to focus on fundamentals of a yoga asana (posture) practice as the pace is somewhat slower and the transitions from one posture to another are more simplified. You will learn how to utilize props and choose the proper variations of postures to suit your needs and goals. Just coming back to your practice? This is a perfect place to start.
-Yoga Flow: You will be guided through a full spectrum flow class at a moderate pace to explore the available ranges of motion in your unique body and experience. Your teacher will offer you traditional postures, variations and prop usage while you follow the guidance of your breath and find expressions of the asanas to best satisfy your needs and goals.
- Yoga + Nidra: Yoga class that incorporates yoga nidra; which is a practice of supreme relaxation wherein you will enjoy deeply restorative and cozy postures while being guided through meditative visualizations and mindfulness cues to initiate a strong and lasting relaxation response in your nervous system and whole being.
-Yin: Similar to Restorative Yoga in that it is a more passive practice and highly therapeutic and relaxing at many levels. You will be guided into postures with precision, props and clear options to support your needs. Postures will be held for longer stretches of time to effect positive change to the connective tissues. As such, Yin Yoga is a great complement to any active lifestyle and all levels are welcome.
-Specialty Classes: Bridge the gap between regular classes and workshops and are a way for us to provide you more in-depth knowledge and focused practice. Each Specialty class feature a unique field of expertise, reflective of the teacher’s “specialty” - interest, education, and experience. You will learn more without having to devote your entire day to it or breaking the bank! These classes range from 90 minutes to 2 hours and are held on weekends once or twice per month and range in price from $25 - $45.
-I’d Rather Be in Savasana: This Specialty Restorative Yoga Class can reduce the discomfort of aches in the body while simultaneously calming the mind. Lounging on supportive piles of bolsters and blankets melts away tightness in the muscles and sets up the ideal circumstances for the nervous system to let go. Open to any level of practitioner, includes reiki (energy healing work) as well as breath awareness, and concludes with a quartz crystal bowl meditation.
