We have some incredible class offerings at Practice Indie, and cannot wait to share them with you! The goal of describing our classes is so that you the practitioner know exactly what to expect out of your experience. This keeps everyone safe, prepared and provides the best possible experience for all practitioners.
Adrenaline Junkies: Always wanted to nail that crow pose? Wanna work on handstands? Adrenaline Junkies is the class to hone your skills that bring about that beautiful rush of… well, adrenaline! Our only requirement? Leave your ego at the door! We break down each pose Let’s get weird and wired on our own adrenaline, y’all!
Practice Shifting Perspective
Alignment Flow: Enjoy the sweat of a Vinyasa Flow with more focus on alignment. Expect the class to pause and explain postures, as well as to teach more challenging poses (think crow, handstand), and then add it into the flow. This class may have the feel of a workshop, but we believe at Practice Indie you shouldn’t have to pay extra to learn how to do yoga poses that are regularly used. Expect 50 minutes- an hour long asana practice with at least a 10-15 minute meditation/ pranayama lesson as well. Attend this class if you are looking to see your practice grow. (75 minutes)
Competitive Napping: Had a long day? Need the physical form of a tall glass of wine? Enjoy creating pillow forts out of yoga props? This is your class. Coined competitive napping, the postures are held for several minutes (4 on average) so that your body can truly rest and restore. This class utilizes a lot of props so prepare to feel unintimidated, completely supported and fully restored ☺. This is a wonderful class for beginners who are looking for stress relief. Optional: Bring warm socks and a sweatshirt. (60 minutes)
Donation Yoga: Have everything to give or nothing at all? This community class is a ‘come as you are- give what you can’ vinyasa yoga class. Proceeds each quarter go to a different charity and no one is watching the tip jar if you can or cannot give each time. This class is truly given in the spirit of giving without receiving, so come enjoy a practice without the strings attached.
The Exorcism: Get deep into your fascia and release some tight ish. Part restorative, part slow flow, part self massage. Get ready to use foam rollers, yoga stretches and lacrosse balls to release your deepest (muscular/fascial) demons. This is a great class for athletes recovering from an injury or working through some tight spots.
Flow and Go (+Flow & Go Express): Want to blare some music in a dimly lit room, get lost in your movement & sweat? This is your class. Expect to sweat, move, flow and hit the pause button. Heated by infrared panels, get ready to let go of all your BS in the form of your own sweat… We recommend bringing water (45 minutes & 60)
Flow & Let Go: Want to blare some music in a dimly lit room, get lost in your movement & sweat – then slow down, cool down and feel reeeeeeeal good? This is your class! We’ll heat up with a flow and to our infrared heat panels followed by slow, relaxing and releasing postures & music. This is the ultimate class to end your day on!
Hip Hop Yoga: Have a love for hip hop, gangster rap AND yoga? You’ve found your tribe. Join us for sweet beats and a sweaty flow. The class pace is quick and heated, but take a deep sigh of relief- no dancing skills required. NamaSLAY. (60 minutes)
Practice High Vibes & Good Times
Guided Meditation: In a world where we are measured by productivity and the ability to multi-task, it seems counterproductive to be still and calm the mind, however it might be the best you can possibly do for yourself. Meditation has been proven to increase focus, reduce stress, increase compassion and mental clarity. You will be guided through a meditation to calm and still the mind leaving you refreshed and energized. (15 minutes)
Salute the Sun: Waking up is hard to do… except when you know the room will be warm, the flow inviting, and the atmosphere chill yet vibrant enough to get your day started. Expect to start your day warm, stretched, strong, balanced, focused and happy!
Practice Saluting the Sun
Soulful Sundays: Looking for a chill way to start your week? Join us for a soulful way to glide into Sundays. This will be an all levels vinyasa flow class with twists, held postures, breath work, extended savasana and humor. Add a touch of R&B, reggae and other soulful sounds and you’ve got one helluva way to start your week (or close out your weekend!)
Practice Beginning Again
Spirit Journey: Part philosophy, part asana, part meditation, part pranayama. Expect a full soul cleansing and an in depth practice of at least 4 of the 8 limbs of the yogic path. (90 minutes to 2 hours)
Steadfast and Slow: Our blend of Slow Flow. We will hold postures longer and flow through more steadily. Don’t expect this class to ‘easier’ but rather the intensity will be focused on holding the postures, deepening the stretches, building strength and creating steadiness rather than cardiovascular output and endurance. Expect deep stretching, focus, increased strength and release. (60 minutes)
Willful Surrender: Practice Indie’s Yin class. If you know what Yin is, click ‘Enroll Now’. If you don’t- yin is long, held (typically seated or reclined) postures that encourage you to explore your mental and physical edge. Unlike competitive napping (restorative yoga), postures are not as supported through props, but may be held just as long which will require the body to truly release and surrender. This is a mentally & physically challenging practice, not because of muscular endurance, but because of mental strength and a willingness to let go- hence ‘willful surrender’.
Yoga for Young People: Calling young yogis or aspiring yogis for a practice that begins with a short philosophical base, moves into asana (poses), and rounds out with meditation to carry us into our daily lives. In other words, we are going to learn yoga we can do on and off the mat! Ages 7-14, though exceptions can be made. Email for more info! Saturdays, 11:15am
Dates for 2018: January 6 & 20, February 4 & 17, March 3 & 17, April 14 & 28
