THE CLASS FOR EVERYONE
This class dispels the myth that slower is easier. For one hour, slow down your movement to delve deeper into the muscular system by holding poses for an extended period of time. This class is completely guided by the teacher. Should you find discomfort in your practice, you will find solace in the power of breath. This class is perfect for anyone looking to meet their edge. Recommended for all experience levels.
LEARN ABOUT ALIGNMENT
Citizen Standard is a class that educates on all the essentials to ensure a safe, aligned yoga practice. We recommend taking 3-5 Citizen Standard classes for students newer to Citizen Yoga and 1-2 CY Standard classes per month for ALL students at Citizen Yoga. This class is a perfectly balanced class for both the seasoned and newer practitioner. In the class, you will learn about: breath, foot placement, standing poses, rotation of the legs, health of the pelvis and foundational elements of the practice. It is a GREAT experience, as well as, educational resource.
A COMBINATION OF STYLES
Combines the flow of Vinyasa with the guided challenge of Slow Burn. The pace of this class moves from some self-guided warm-ups into long-held postures that slow the body, focus the mind, and work toward a well-earned savasana. If you are familiar with Short-Form Ashtanga, this class offers a similar pace. Recommended for students who have attended at least 1-5 yoga classes. However, all our teachers are very supportive and will help guide you through a wonderful experience on the mat. Prior to class, please inform the teacher if you are new to yoga so that they can best support you.
BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
This class is the perfect combination of restorative and movement. The Yin portion of class is done first to prep the body for specific pivotal poses. A Yin practice involves restful, deep stretching poses held for 2-5 minutes. Halfway through class, the pace will pick up to reflect more of a Vinyasa flow, linking breath to movement. The sequence is based on the Chinese meridian lines to take care of the energy body as much as the physical body. Recommended for students who have taken 1-3 classes. However, all our teachers are very supportive and will help guide you through a wonderful experience on the mat.
