Vinyasa is a modern style of yoga that connects body to breath in a moving meditation. It combines a series of asanas (physical positions) that target mindfulness through flow, balance, twists and inversions. This is an all-levels class that can be individualized to each person.
Gentle yoga slows down the asana(position) flows of vinyasa and gives each person a chance to feel out vinyasa poses with a variation that caters to the needs of beginners, injuries and those that like a calmer practice. It connects body to breath through a moving meditation and can also be leveled up for those looking for more of a challenge.
Yin yoga is a slow restorative-like style of yoga that focuses on holding stretches that heal joints and ligaments. A typical pose can be held for 5-10 minutes and in one session an average of 12 poses are moved into. Yin relaxes the parasympathetic nervous system through twists, folds, and gentle inversions.
Yin Yang heats up the body for the first half of class through a series of flows and then cools the body down with restorative deep stretching. It is a well-balanced class of sun and moon energy that is a great way to reset stress hormones and release endorphins.
Meet Your Yoga Instructor
Namaste, my name is Patrea Fernandez and my passion is to teach others and myself how to be our most holistic selves through yoga, meditation and ayurvedic teachings. I integrate meditation and education into my vinyasa and yin yoga classes. I also love adding self-massage that taps into our subtle bodies and parasympathetic nervous system. I have practiced yoga for the past 10 years and finally combined my 15-year career as a high school teacher with my yoga passion in 2022 to be certified through the Yoga Alliance with a 200-hour certification.
