DESCRIPTION OF CLASSES 

We offer a variety of yoga classes both on the ground and in the air.  Check out the many different teachers at Yoga On York to experience the many different flavors of Yoga.


Aerial Yoga

Traditional yoga postures are adapted from ground to air using fabric hammocks that are hung hip level.  Some upper body strength is required for our mixed level aerial yoga classes offered on Wednesday evenings 7:30pm or Saturday mornings at 9:30am.  If you are a beginner, we suggest that you try Gentle Aerial Yoga offered Tuesdays at 6pm.  Please wear shirts that cover your underarms.  No jewelry, watches, zippers, velcro or anything that can snag the fabric.  No perfume, lotions, oil in hair.  


Beginner & Gentle Yoga

For those who need to slow down the pace, this calm and peaceful stretching and strengthening class integrates breathwork and meditation. This class is for anyone and everyone (ages 10 - 90) who has wanted to try yoga but is too intimidated to step into a studio. Breathwork (pranayama) is the main focus in building a strong foundation for transformation. 


Community Energy Medicine Yoga

This integrative yoga practice accessible to students of all levels for only $7 and includes asana poses, breathwork, meditation and Energy Medicine techniques such as acupressure holds, Neurolymphatic Reflex self massage and energy channel clearings. Classes may also include the use of therapeutic props such as massage peanuts and balance pods. EMYoga will help unlock the language of your body to amplify your healing power – mind, body and spirit. The result is a deep love, appreciation and acceptance of

yourself just as you are now, as you continue on a path toward your best self. It is yoga...electrified!


Community Yoga

 

For just $7 our popular community yoga classes combine detailed instruction with a blend of basic and intermediate postures. Some experience with yoga is suggested but not necessary. A great way to practice yoga for those on a tight budget.


Intermediate Community Hatha Yoga

This practice of physical yoga postures is a general category that aligns and calms the mind, body and spirit, preparing the body for deeper practices such as meditation.

 


Kids Yoga Workshops

This is an opportunity for kids to explore their own yoga practice. Students will begin to answer the question "What is Yoga?" as they learn the basics of postures and breath. This class is appropriate for children who are new to yoga, as well as for those who are continuing their practice.


Together with Toddler

Moms, Dads, Grandparents or any adult can come with a toddler (walking – preschool age). Fun and engaging activities that not only help build bonds but work on gross developmental movement that help as our wee ones develop their bodies and minds.    


Yin Yoga

Yin yoga  consists of a series of passive floor poses held for 3-5 minutes that  work the lower and upper parts of the body - mainly in the connective tissue-rich joints of the the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, spine and shoulders. A great way to feel restored and renewed.
