Classes

Yoga classes are not “1-size-fits-all.” Age, fitness levels, and available energy vary widely among individuals. At Karma Yoga, however, you have choices among a variety of styles and yoga traditions. From Heart & Soul Flow (our signature Hatha classes) to Yin and Kundalini, there’s a class that’s just right for you, with experienced teachers who care about your well-being. *Starred classes are suitable for beginning students.

Heart & Soul Flow **

Heart & Soul Flow is a breath-based practice that warms the core, brings suppleness and strength to muscles, and maintains mobility in joints. Hatha Yoga (physical practice) at its finest with a combined emphasis on body, mind, and spirit to facilitate greater clarity, healing, and transformation. Karma teachers expertly weave technique and alignment to foster an optimal experience.

 

Heart & Soul Flow * is a foundational hatha yoga class accessible to any level student. Slowly flowing sequences strengthen and lengthen; breath-based movement and occasional meditation complete the experience of clearing the mind and rejuvenating the body. Perfect for new yogis.

 

Heart & Soul Flow 2 takes it up a notch physically to increase strength, endurance, balance, and flexibility. Some yoga experience recommended. Sessions may include sun salutations, standing balance postures, inversions, breathing exercises, and occasional meditation.

Yin **

Yin Yoga is a balancing(yin) complement for your active(yang) yoga practice. It targets the connective tissues, such as the fascia, ligaments, joints, and even the bones of the body which do not receive as much attention in a more active style asana practice. Students maintain postures for minutes at a time, allowing therapeutic effects to permeate deeply throughout the body. Yin Yoga generally focuses on the hips, pelvis, and lower spine and is suitable for all levels.  BRING 2 PILLOWCASES FOR BOLSTER COVERING.  This is a MASK-WEARING practice; social distancing guidelines will be observed.

All Levels

Anusara yoga means “Flowing with Grace” and as such promotes deep personal growth and transformative experiences on all levels.The power of Anusara yoga, as a method, comes from its comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to the physical, mental, spiritual and mystical aspects of yoga.

It is a unique form of Hatha yoga that gives people of all backgrounds and abilities the opportunity to improve strength, flexibility and balance. Anusara goes beyond fitness by supporting practitioners' creativity and joyful self discovery.

yoga for personal transformation

This seven week series will explore the unique and immediate experience and benefits of the combination and union of yoga and group share. Kate invites participants to dive in to concepts and themes that are central to personal growth and self expression. The “power of group” has proven to have a powerful impact on moving and shifting thought and habit patterns, old beliefs and feeling states that can keep us from expansion, change and personal transformation. There will be a half hour yoga practice followed by an hour of group share in a safe and confidential space carefully and skillfully facilitated by Kate K. Smith, MA, LLP. All levels of students are welcome; no drop-ins permitted. https://www.birminghammaple.com/kate-smith/
