About ANNE’S YOGA CLASSES

UPDATE: Thanks to all of you who have attended my classes prior to March 2020. I will not be returning to the studio this summer/fall 2021. When the time and space allow, I hope to offer in-person classes again in the future. 

HATHA YOGA  

An active class which includes meditation (mindfulness), asanas (physical postures), and pranayama (breath work) with the intention of bringing balance and harmony to body and mind. Elements of yoga philosophy are woven into the class for reflection and contemplation. Suitable for all levels; some yoga experience helpful but not necessary.

YIN YOGA  

A passive class where the body releases into long-held poses (up to 5 minutes) with the intention of bringing stimulation to the connective tissues of the body through slow, steady, traction-like pressure. Pressurizing the tissues this way also helps to balance the flow of energy or “CHI” throughout the body. A highly meditative class with guided breath work. Suitable for all levels including those new to yoga and an excellent complement to more active styles of yoga.

YOGA-PILATES

An active class that blends dynamic movement, yoga poses, Pilates mat work, and core exercises with mindful awareness and breath attention. A well-rounded class for those who are looking for a fusion-style workout with a holistic approach. Suitable for active adults.

UPDATE re: Yoga-Pilates class – This City of Ottawa class is not running at this time. For more information on available programming with Ottawa Parks and Recreation, see https://ottawa.ca/en/recreation-and-parks.
