Vinyasa Yoga, also known as flow yoga, is a creative moving meditation set to music by smoothly connecting poses on inhales and exhales. Flows are easily adjusted from basic to advanced making vinyasa yoga perfect for all levels.
Ashtanga-Vinyasa Yoga, like vinyasa, aims to synchronize breath with movement but follows a more specific sequence of postures. This practice will vigorously strengthen and tone the body and is a great practice to become familiar with common yoga poses encountered in any yoga class.
Yin-Restorative Yoga, is a non heated, slow pace style of yoga where stretches are static and held for long periods of time and offers props to allow the body to relax while holding and focusing on the breath. You will cultivate flexibility and focus on the connective tissues with yin, making it a great practice to balance your Ashtanga/Vinyasa practice.
Let yoga be your Medicine – Infrared Heaters have been installed!
DETOXIFY, STIMULATE the IMMUNE SYSTEM, and BURN FAT
There is a DIFFERENCE between a hot yoga studio and an Infrared Heated Studio. Traditional heaters heat the body from the outside, great for sweating and fat burning…
BUT… Infrared heats the body from the INSIDE so sweating and fat burning are only part of the benefits! Infrared causes dilation of the small blood vessels deep inside the organs, increasing circulation in the deep tissues which don’t easily get fresh blood. When deep organ tissues are flushed with new oxygenated blood, deeper healing takes place. Toxic substances like heavy metals, environmental toxins and chemicals are stored in these deep tissues. The infrared heat combined with the twisting and stretching of the yoga poses allow the toxins to be released, they travel into the blood stream and are carried out of the body through the skin with the sweat or released into the gut to move out through the bowels. The infrared heat also stimulates the immune system. The penetrating heat creates an “artificial fever” and the body’s natural response is to increase white blood cells. White blood cells then work to kill viruses, bacteria and other harmful microbes. So grab a towel and a mat and join us for the deepest healing and regenerating experience only available under infrared heaters.
Drs. Alexis and Jason McNeil started their yoga practice together in 2012 as a way of dealing with the day to day stressors of running a business and being physicians. Yoga transformed their hearts, lives and medical practice beyond belief. Their vision is to offer this important piece of health to their patients and the Cave Creek community. Our noon yoga class reminds us to SLOW DOWN, BREATHE, and continue our work day with LOVE and GRATITUDE.
