Love Slow + Gentle
Saturdays • 75 MINUTES
Gentle is our delightfully indulgent, slow-moving class which focuses on accessible poses, delightfully long holds, and plenty of opportunity to deepen your practice in the way that feels best for you.
In Gentle, we take the time to move slowly, calming the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) and activating the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) through subtle cues, a slower pace, less poses, and longer exhales.
In this class, practitioners are given the space to explore what feels best for them.
Here at Be the Love, Gentle is a great class to begin your yoga journey. It is a class to deepen your practice and your understanding as a practitioner. It is an essential part of developing a deeper awareness of yourself and exploring possibility through yoga.

Yin yoga is a slow, passive yoga class taught in a dimly lit room. It is quiet, balancing, and beautiful. Through passive and long held postures, the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) is activated, allowing the body, mind and soul to expand, release, regulate, and restore.
A Yin yoga class usually consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that open areas of the body that are especially rich in connective tissue, such as the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine, and shoulders. Poses are held for 3-5 minutes.
Yin is an important part of your yoga practice and will help to advance any practitioner.

Yoga Nidra is the practice of yogic sleep. In Nidra, you relax and restore your body in a reclined position on the ground. Once comfortable, you are progressively guided through meditation and brought on a journey. Typically practitioners tuck themselves into comfortable positions with warm blankets and bolsters.
Through the progressive relaxation, you will enter a state of deep stillness, landing in the beautiful place between sleep and wakefulness (or you might just fall asleep!). Once there, you are guided on a visually enticing journey of self-awareness, creativity, and delight.
These days, Yoga Nidra has something to offer every single person. Whether you are dealing with stress or chronic illness, or simply balancing the busy-ness of daily life, regular Nidra practice will help you to cultivate more energy, manage chronic conditions, sleep better, and find more peace in the rest of your life.
Nidra is a powerful meditative practice for students ready to dive deeper into their subconscious for self-reflection and an essential part of a complete yoga practice.
Yoga Nidra Classes:

OPEN is a Love Slow class focused on increasing range of motion through deep stretches that will open targeted areas of our body.
Each week will focus on a different area of the body (for example: shoulders, spine/ribs, hips, and hamstrings), giving you an opportunity to open, expand, and elongate muscle groups, providing space to build a deeper practice.
And with that deeper practice, comes an entirely new level of strength THROUGH increased range of motion.
If you’re ready to advance your practice, or just beginning, OPEN is the opportunity for you to study asana (poses) in a more profound and expansive way.
You will open. You will stretch. And you will develop and deepen your yoga practice.
