Reasons to Try Yoga:
Stress Relief: The practice of yoga is well-demonstrated to reduce the physical effects of stress on the body. The body responds to stress through a fight-or-flight response, which is a combination of the sympathetic nervous system and hormonal pathways activating, releasing cortisol – the stress hormone – from the adrenal glands. Cortisol is often used to measure the stress response. Yoga practice has been demonstrated to reduce the levels of cortisol. Most yoga classes end with savasana, a relaxation pose, which further reduces the experience of stress.
Pain Relief: Yoga can ease pain. Studies have shown that practicing yoga asanas (postures), meditation or a combination of the two, reduced pain for people with conditions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, auto-immune diseases and hypertension as well as arthritis, back and neck pain and other chronic conditions.
Better Breathing: Yoga includes breathing practices known as pranayama, which can be effective for reducing our stress response, improving lung function and encouraging relaxation. Many pranayamas emphasize slowing down and deepening the breath, which activates the body’s parasympathetic system, or relaxation response. By changing our pattern of breathing, we can significantly affect our body’s experience of and response to stress. This may be one of the most profound lessons we can learn from our yoga practice.
Flexibility: Yoga can improve flexibility and mobility and increase range of motion. Over time, the ligaments, tendons and muscles lengthen, increasing elasticity.
Increased Strength: Yoga asanas use every muscle in the body, increasing strength literally from head to toe. A regular yoga practice can also relieve muscular tension throughout the whole body.
Weight management: While most of the evidence for the effects of yoga on weight loss is anecdotal or experiential, yoga teachers, students and practitioners across the country find that yoga helps to support weight loss. Many teachers specialize in yoga programs to promote weight management and find that even gentle yoga practices help support weight loss. People do not have to practice the most vigorous forms of yoga to lose weight. Yoga encourages development of a positive self-image, as more attention is paid to nutrition and the body as a whole. A study from the Journal of Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine found that regular yoga practice was associated with less age-related weight gain. The lifestyle study of 15,500 adults in their 50’s covered 10 years of participants’ weight history, physical activity, medical history and diet.
Improved circulation: Yoga helps to improve circulation by efficiently moving oxygenated blood to the body’s cells.
Cardiovascular Conditioning: Even a gentle yoga practice can provide cardiovascular benefits by lowering resting heart rate, increasing endurance and improving oxygen uptake during exercise.
Presence: Yoga connects us with the present moment. The more we practice, the more aware we become of our surroundings and the world around us. It opens the way to improved concentration, coordination, reaction time and memory.
Inner peace: The meditative effects of a consistent yoga practice help many cultivate inner peace and calm.

BEGINNERS MEDITATION (Beginner Friendly Class)
Meditation is one of the most natural and rewarding of all human activities. It brings balance, rest, and a growing inner peace. While its highest and original purpose is to help us awaken our inner, spiritual nature, the benefits to body and mind are well established by medical research. When the mind has been trained to remain fixed on a certain internal or external location, there comes to it the power of flowing in an unbroken current, as it were, towards that point. All paths welcome. Dress casual, No heat, bring a cushion to sit on.
Notes: When the mind has been trained to remain fixed on a certain internal or external location, there comes to it the power of flowing in an unbroken current, as it were, towards that point. This state is called dhyana. When one has so intensified the power of dhyana as to be able to reject the external part of perception and remain meditating only on the internal part, the meaning, that state is called Samadhi.

INVERTED URBAN FLOW (Challenging )
Created through the EVOLUTION of Hot House Yogas 7 years of teaching YOGA ,we Flip upside down from headstands to handstands encourages delivery of fresh blood to your heart, which provides more efficient circulation. It is similar to what aerobics may offer. From the inversions we will move on to arm balances. Arm balances are very much about technique and positioning and less about brute strength. Learning where to lift and where to press are fundamentals of arm balances that will move you off the floor with ease. Again, we use bolsters, blankets and blocks to give us clearance and security. We will work on crow and its variations, 8-points pose, and Figure-4 balance. More advanced students can use the wall to work the inverted balancing postures they may be ready for, such as forearm balance, scorpion and handstand.
These positions are also said to improve lung tissue quality. Being upright the majority of your day causes the lower lung tissue to saturate with blood, but inverting will ventilate the upper lungs, ensuring a more even oxygen-to-blood exchange that promotes healthier tissue.Being upside down also increases blood flow to your head, relieving the heart of some of its duties and temporarily lowering blood pressure and heart rate.
VINYASA FLOW (All Levels)
Vinyasa means ‘to move with the breath.’ Some of the most popular yoga styles, including Ashtanga, Anusara and Power Yoga, are taught in a vinyasa style – meaning the series of poses flows purposefully with the breath. Hot House Yoga Vinyasa Flow classes blend ancient wisdom across many yogic traditions to form new expressions. These classes offer more variety in their sequencing than a traditional Ashtanga class, are slower paced than a Power Yoga class, and more vigorous than an Iyengar class. Vinyasa Flow yoga is athletic in nature, combining hard work with deep relaxation to build strength, flexibility, concentration and balance.
The style that is taught in our Urban Flow Yoga Teacher Training is a joyful, creative and intelligent flow style which can be easily adapted to different levels and different tempos. At the end of the Yoga Teacher Training you will not only be qualified to teach Advances Vinyasa Flow Yoga but will also have the tools to create other styles of yoga classes, such as more basic, Core strengthening and Yin Yoga and Sacred Music. While the main style of our school is Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Shelly Kwiatkouski aka Uma and Alexis Martin will also be teaching a more eclectic mix of styles during the training, drawing on other types of Yoga that have influenced their practice and teaching, including, Anusara Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Power Yoga, and Acro Yoga.
YIN YOGA (All Levels)
Yin yoga classes involve a relaxed practice of floor postures that are held from three to five minutes at a time. There are far fewer postures or asanas in the yin style of yoga as are found in more active styles. There are approximately three dozen postures in total. In a 90 minute Yin yoga class, you can expect to do an average of thirteen poses.
Yin Yoga has the same goals and objectives as any other school of yoga; however, it directs the stimulation normally created in the asana portion of the practice deeper than the superficial or muscular tissues (which we are calling the yang tissues). Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.
Private yoga lessons are an excellent way for new students to learn yoga in a non-intimidating environment that customizes yoga to the needs of the individual. At the same time, they provide a means for more experienced students to refine their skills and gain access to advanced practices rarely taught in the classroom that may lead to great physical and energetic shifts.
Private yoga lessons can be used to address concerns such as injuries, therapeutics, energy balancing, and can even be used to transform bad habits, including postural misalignments and behavioral patterns. 60 Minutes Private Lessons: $60.00, Yearly Unlimited Members: $50.00, Hot House Student Teachers: $50.00
