Yoga for complete beginners
The only place you will find Spa Yoga in Rhode Island is here at Phoenix Rising.
SPA yoga is a slow-flow, floor-based, whole-body sensory experience based on Fluid Yoga sequencing. By engaging all five of the senses with soft candlelight, soothing music, aromatherapy, lots of hands-on assists and a renewed awareness of taste (and sometimes chocolate!), SPA aligns practitioners with the inner wisdom of deep relaxation.
We move through poses and sequencing focused on mobility and recovery. Smoother transitions to reduce an already low impact exercise even more.
The focus is on breath and on working through the body methodically to be sure that the whole body is addressed and incorporated. You'll leave feeling rested, rejuvenated, and warmed up for the day ahead.
Merge is a unique program that incorporates specific movements and exercises to target the fascia - your body's largest organ that controls movement and stores all the information of past traumas, movement patterns and more.
You will rebuild and restore any areas of weakness or pain in the body, deepen your yoga practice, and optimize your entire athletic performance by learning about fascia and gaining a deeper understanding and connection with your body.
AIReal yoga is unlike any other practice, and not just because of the obvious addition of the yoga hammock.
In an AIReal class you can expect to gain both strength and mobility faster and safer than in a floor based practice. This is because the hammock will allow you to get deeper into poses and hold them for longer. Supported by the hammock you can also reap benefits from poses that you couldn't access or hold otherwise all while building the confidence, mobility, and strength to add them to your practice out of the hammock in the future.
AIReal yoga is exceptionally amazing and beneficial for anyone suffering from back pain, scoliosis, or even a spinal fusion.
