Yoga for all levels

All the classes taught at Yoga Cabin are multi-level unless otherwise specified.
It is important to know your own limits and let your instructor know if you have any injuries.  It may also be necessary to consult your Physician about taking on a yoga practice and whether that contradicts with any of your pre-existing conditions.

Yoga is meant to teach awareness of the body and bring harmony to our minds body and soul.  It is always a rule to never push beyond your limits to a place of injury.  Sit out of a pose that doesn’t feel right, or stay a bit longer in one that does.  Learn to be patient with your body, learn to be kind to your body and all is coming.  Yoga Cabin teachers promote your bodies inner wisdom to come out and guide your practice.

What kind of Yoga?

Hatha Yoga is the main type of Yoga practice at Yoga Cabin.
With the literal meaning of “Ha” meaning sun, and “Ta” meaning moon, Hatha yoga aims to unite these sun and moon energies in our body creating balance, inner peace, and health.

The practice often begins with a short meditation and gentle warm-up preparing the muscles and joints for movement.  Rounds of sun salutations and dynamic movements usually follow the warm-up until the class is unwound to do some deeper stretching and strengthening back on the ground.  Savasana or final relaxation is said to be the most important part of the yoga practice as it allows us to sit quietly with a peaceful mind.  Every class at Yoga Cabin honors this tradition and allots time at the end of each class for silence in Savasana.


New to Yoga?

Are you new to Yoga?  You may have seen signs and studios everywhere.  Your friends have tried it and even your doctor recommends it, yet it feels intimidating to go.  It is so common that people say that they are not flexible enough to go to yoga or they can’t do it because they just don’t look like the very bendy people who fill the classes at the gym.   The truth is, we’ve all been there and then hopefully found out that yoga isn’t about any of those things at all.  In fact yoga is about helping us not care about those things. Yoga teaches us that we are perfectly where we are supposed to be, that there is nowhere to go, no pose needed to achieve, no finish line to get to.  Yoga is about learning to handle the journey showing up and trying.  Whether you conquer a fear by doing a handstand or simply walking through the door, Yoga Cabin welcomes you and your evolving journey with open arms.  Just a tip, let your instructor know that you are new and it may make things a bit easier.
