CLASSES ON THE FLOATING DECK & MESQUITE STREET INDOOR STUDIO
Yin Yoga (Beginner friendly)
Yin yoga is a slower, more meditative approach to yoga. Poses will be held longer (typically 3-5mins) getting into the deeper connective tissue of the body, increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.
The slower pace is ideal if you are new to yoga or trying to improve on the basics. You don't need to be flexible to do this class! Start wherever you are, working on improvement. This class is for all levels with modifications for beginners to advanced yogis.
Vin Yin Yoga
The first part of class is VINAYASA style, incorporating movement with breathe, increasing internal heat, cultivating balance, flexibility, strength and endurance. In the second part of class, we will slow down with more meditative YIN yoga. Poses will be held longer getting into the connective tissue of the body and improving flexibility. This FUN combination allows for the best of both worlds of yoga!
Yogilates combines elements of both Yoga and Mat Pilates. In this class we will flow through yoga and Pilates moves, focusing on strengthening the entire core, especially the abs and glutes. A strong core will help you hold poses longer, achieve proper posture and improve your balance along with preventing injuries and lower back pain. Like most of Water Dog's classes this will be modified for all levels.
Express Yoga at Mesquite Street
Rejuvenate during your lunch break and go back to the office feeling relaxed & refreshed! This class is for all-levels and its great for beginners and office workers. The focus will be on countering stiffness in the neck, shoulders, back and hips from sitting at a desk during the day. It is designed for you to get to class and back to the office without stress. Its Fridays 12:10-12:50pm indoors at our Mesquite Street Downtown Studio.
The goal of this yoga practice is to bring you strength, flexibility and inner peace. Flowing, athletic movements and breathe work are at the heart of this vinyasa based class. Be prepared to move and build some internal heat!
The particular set of poses used in this class are based on the Ashtanga Primary Series.
Although this is a Power Yoga based class, like all classes at Water Dog, options and modifications will be given for all levels.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Vinyasa Flow Yoga connects movements with breathe. During class we will mindfully move between poses to create a flow called a vinyasa.
Internal heat will be created by incorporating sequences, building strength, flexibility and concentration. Yogis of all levels will be able to take class at Water Dog with modified for beginners to advanced practitioners.
Mat Pilates is a non-impact workout involving controlling and balance of the body, mind and breathe. Each class will balance all muscle groups’ strength and flexibility, with an emphasis on challenging the core muscles with each movement. This class will help build strength, endurance and flexibility. At Water Dog we focus our Pilates classes on working the core, glutes and abs.
