Cara’s Vinyasa Flow classes focus on the fluidity of the breath and uniting of the postures. The breath cleanses and heals the body and soul, while the postures build alignment, as well as physical, mental, and emotional strength.
While her sequences are sometimes deep and intense, she creates a gentle and loving atmosphere through her nurturing vocal direction and music choices. She strives to help her students to overcome their mental limitations while listening to their bodies needs.
Vinyasa is best for individuals who are already physically active and familiar with basic yoga postures. Cara offers introductory courses to Vinyasa for beginners or students new to the Vinyasa practice.
Restorative Yoga does exactly that. It restores you!
This is a gentle practice in which the students center their breath and body while staying in floor poses for extended periods of time. The purpose is to allow the student to relax deeply with absolutely no physical effort with the help of props, allowing the mind and muscles to release.
This practice is useful all students including those with injuries who can do very limited asana, individuals looking to feel more rested or to deepen their self practice, those looking to relieve anxiety or stress; the benefits of restorative are incredible and easily available to all practitioners.
Cara creates a grounding and nurturing space for students to go inward and explore themselves in a safe and loving atmosphere.
