Ahmed Fahmy instructs the following:
- Yin Yang
- Sweet Vinyasa
- Reboot Yoga
Philosophy and Principles. Yin and Yang are the Taoist concepts which describe the two relative qualities present in everything. ... When these terms are applied to yoga,Yin Yoga is a slower practice where poses are passively held for longer, working on the deep, dense (Yin) connective tissues and joints in the body.
Our vinyasa classes are generally more active. Expect to sweat to a faster paced class that connects movement with breath. This class will energize, challenge, and inspire you. Expect to build strength, flexibility, mobility, and core integration. This class is for all levels, and we try to offer plenty of options for the beginner or advanced yogi so it's a healthy challenge. For those who like more of a workout, this class will focus on challenging standing poses, basic arm balances, and inversions.
Our yin yoga class is a contemplative and meditative practice using long-held floor postures and breath awareness to target deep fascial release. This is a tried and true way of increasing flexibility in the hips and spine. May include some standing poses to balance the practice. A slower paced class, great for those looking to increase flexibility.
