Class Descriptions

Little Lotus offers a wide variety of yoga styles to the community. Read below to see which classes would be most appropriate for YOU.

Rest to Thrive

This structure of Restorative Yoga has been created by Shannon Paige Kenney, my yoga teacher. This structure is a highly regarded and respected deep nurturing style of yoga. In this practice of thoughtful and intentional rest, the body is supported by bolsters, pillows and blankets. The mind and breath are guided through gentle images and practices. You will be guided through 13 intentionally sequenced postures. There are 4 pillars of Anjali twists and bends, spinal lengthening, hip strength and flexibility and chakra.

Chair Yoga

In this gentle practice students will perform postures, stretching, and breathing exercises, experiencing the benefits of yoga without having to get up and down from the floor. This class is for everybody who would like to increase balance, strength, range of motion, and stress reduction.

Flow and Tone

Join Theresa Hansen for this 45 minute class focused on toning and stretching. You will be guided through Sun Salutations to warm up the body and then into weight work. Weights of varying sizes will be utilized depending upon your individual needs. In each class we will target upper and lower body ending with core and of course savasana.

Yoga Foundations

Join Stephanie for this Foundations class. This class is great for the beginner.

Yin Yoga

Join Travis Posthumus for yin yoga that stretches and targets both the deep connective tissues between the muscles, and the fascia throughout the body. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility.

Level 1 Vinyasa Fundamentals

Proper alignment is the foundation for a lifetime of happy and healthy yoga. Students in this class will practice postures statically and dynamically, building a solid base for more advanced poses and faster-paced flows. This class is suited for both beginners and seasoned yogis who wish to grow in their practice. Props and modifications will be offered.

Level 2 Vinyasa (Intermediate)

This class drives students to challenge themselves to move toward the next level of their practice while honoring their current abilities. Offering Vinyasa flows with an emphasis on following and flowing with the breath, and incorporating balances, arm balances, back bends and twists, this class will provide a place for students to listen to and trust their bodies in order to develop an understanding of themselves. Everyone is invited to attend, especially those who have had a solid introduction to the basics of yoga.

BUTI ® Yoga:

"BUTI is just a nicer way to spell 'booty,' but BUTI also means the cure to something that is hidden in Indian Maharathi. I liked that, because our goal in BUTI is to unlock the Shakti energy trapped in the lower two chakras." ~~Bizzie Gold, creator of BUTI Yoga
In this 45 minute class you will move your body in a way that unleashes tension, tightness and pent up emotions from the lower 2 chakras through yoga, tribal dance and plyometrics. In this class expect to raise your heart rate while having a lot of FUN!

FriYAY Flow

Join Theresa for a fun FriYAY Flow to end your week. In this 45 minute flow Theresa will lead you through an active flow with fun music. The intention of this class is to release the stress, worry and tension of the week and put your mind at ease to enjoy your weekend. Theresa teaches with all levels in mind and can offer modifications and adjustments for every BODY. If you can fit in only one yoga practice in your week be certain this is the one you make time for.

Yoga Flow

Join Theresa Hansen for this All Levels Vinyasa Flow Practice to get your weekend started off on the right foot. Theresa will guide you into a comfortable seat, lead you through a guided meditation or dharma talk to set intention for the practice to follow. You will begin with seated postures to warm up the body, slowing move into standing postures with flows such as Sun Salutation A and B, more vigourous flow sequences selected and designed to prepare the body for the peak posture of class.
