The various Disciplines or Styles of yoga we incorporate into our teaching at Edge Yoga primarily include:
(1) Sri Swami Satchidananda described Integral Yoga as: "...a flexible combination of specific methods to develop every aspect of the individual: physical, intellectual, and spiritual. It is a scientific system which integrates the various branches of Yoga in order to bring about a complete and harmonious development of the individual."
(2) Vinyasa, or the flow of breath with movement is a vigorous style that focuses on strength and grace trough control. Flow yoga stems from Ashtanga Yoga, which means 'eight-limbed'. Vinyasa classes are a series of flowing postures linked by the breath to detoxify, strengthen the body, & nurture life force.

How to understand the levels described in our class schedule
(the descriptions appear in the order of general difficulty & represents a standard progression)
Our level one classes are appropriate for most ages & experience levels.
In our level one classes our instruction focuses on body
alignment & development of strength and body awareness
within each student. These classes are still physically challenging
even for an advanced practitioner and focus on movement,
balance & strength.
Mixed Level Yoga
Are appropriate for most experienced practitioners, assume the student has had exposure to hatha yoga. The instructors will provide a series of asana modifications allowing even the most advanced practitioner a challenge. These classes are still moderately difficult and are physically challenging.
Mixed Level Yoga I/II
Yoga I/II classes are faster paced and assume a deeper understanding of the foundational asana. In our I/II classes we begin to explore setting up more advanced asana including headstands and arm balances while developing the strength and body awareness to safely execute
and transition between these more advanced asana.
Our Power Yoga classes represent a mixture of different styles, but are similar in intensity to
an intermediate/advanced Ashtanga class. These classes move quickly and are physically demanding. Our Power Yoga classes focus on developing the strength to perform
advanced asana execution, with a focus on binding, arm
balances & inversions. Students taking a "Power Yoga" class should either have an athletic background or have an understanding of body alignment in hatha yoga postures and heightened body awareness & strength.
Prior yoga experience is required. INSTRUCTOR PERMISSION SUGGESTED.
