Om Grown Yoga Collective (OMgyc) is a collaboration of local yoga teachers who want to bring breath, movement and mindfulness to our community!!
Our goal is to make yoga available, accessible and affordable for everyone; we want to change the world for the better and we want to begin in our own community. No previous yoga experience or certain fitness level is required to attend any of our classes. Yoga will meet you right where you are!
So, what is yoga? In the most simplistic terms, yoga practice combines aspects of breath, movement and mindfulness to enhance relaxation, mobility, flexibility, balance, strength and coordination.
In western culture, yoga is known primarily as a physical practice designed to stretch the body and many classes also incorporate breath work (pranyama) into that practice. This style of yoga is more accurately described as Hatha Yoga.
Under this Hatha Yoga umbrella, we here at OMgyc offer three varieties of classes:
Vinyasa Flow which emphasizes breath to movement, where you move in and out of poses with your inhales and exhales. Sun Salutations or Moon Salutations are featured in these practices and accompanying sequences are created by each teacher. OMgyc Classes in this category: Breath & Body Yoga, Soul Flow Yoga, Flow & Let Go Yoga, Relax & Recharge Yoga, Rise & Shine Yoga, Sweat & Stretch Yoga.
Yin Yoga emphasizes deeper and longer passive holds, often for 3-5 minutes, targeting connective tissue. Many people find yin yoga to be very relaxing however, long periods of silence coupled with the intensity of the poses can be challenging to individuals who are constantly on the move (physically or mentally). Yin yoga can be a great tool during injury recovery. OMgyc Classes in this category: Deep Stretch & Zen Yoga.
Restorative Yoga uses props such as blankets, pillows and blocks to support the body in seated or reclined poses. The purpose of this practice is to allow the body to completely relax while you focus on your breath to relieve stress. Restorative yoga can also be a great tool during injury recovery. OMgyc Classes in this category: The Soul-Storation Series (offered on January 13, February 10 & March 10)
