Yoga Basics

No one ever woke up one day with a mastery of yoga. They started with the basics and practiced until they got better. Every journey begins when you decide to start exactly where you are. 

Yoga Basics is the perfect first step in your yoga practice. The class is designed for anyone looking to get into yoga for the first time, but is also helpful for those who want to improve their grasp on the fundamentals after years of practice. 

You’ll learn the basic poses of yoga, how to connect your movement to your breath, how to adapt your practice to suit your abilities, and how to put your poses together to create a flow. You’ll get pointers and demonstrations from your instructor in real time along with hands-on adjustment so you’ll feel confident knowing you’re practicing the poses correctly and moving toward your fitness goals or onto more advanced classes. Bring a bottle of water and an open mind and be prepared to learn and have fun. 

What to Expect

Open Movement
Moderate Intensity
A New Experience Every Time

Yoga Flow

Connect your movements to your breath in this moderate intensity practice. It pairs basic poses with a fluid, brisk pace to generate a meditative state, allowing you to focus on the present.  You’ll learn to  time your poses to your breath and forget the stress of your day. Flow classes, commonly called vinyasa,  usually include a mix of balance work, standing poses, floor work, and peak poses to improve flexibility, increase energy and stamina, and promote an overall sense of well being.

Unlike other types of yoga, vinyasa flows aren’t a strict set of specific poses. The free, open concept allows teachers and participants to get creative, designing a sequence that works for their specific yogis and focuses on areas where they may need more flexibility or increased strength. In that way, every flow class is different and you get something unique out of vinyasa every time you practice it. That’s why vinyasa flow classes are among the most popular types of yoga in the world.

What to Expect

30 Minute Class
Suitable for all Levels
Strength Building

Core Yoga

A strong core is a lot more than a six pack of abs in your swimsuit. It’s an essential ingredient for good health and a long, active life. And it’s not just those bikini-baring stomach muscles. It’s actually all the muscles that wrap around your middle —your internal and external abdominals, pectorals, obliques, glutes and back muscles— that support your spine and keep you standing upright. 

A powerful core protects you from back injuries, improves your posture, reduces your risk of falls, decreases recovery time from workouts and increases calorie burn. In your yoga practice, a tight core can help improve your balance, flexibility and agility so you feel stronger and more confident on your mat.

Got 30 minutes? You’re on your way to improved core strength with this efficient, fun class. Yoga-inspired poses will strengthen your core to help you find ease in your other yoga practices and in your overall life.

    I love having an annual pass with Plover Yoga, the virtual and on-demand classes work great with a full time work schedule. The instructors are great and they allow the flexibility to customize your practice to fit your skill levels. Thanks Lisa, for making an older, not flexible man like me a believer in Yoga, and being able to fit it into my workout routine.

    What to Expect

    45 Minute Class
    Relaxing Poses
    Joint Friendly

    Restorative Yoga

    Think yoga has to be about fast-paced, athletic flows with lots of calorie burn? Think again. Restorative yoga is a slow, gentle practice filled with passive stretching to help you relax and unwind.

    Using bolsters, blankets, or blocks for additional support, you’ll hold relaxing poses like child’s pose and corpse pose for long durations. You’ll sink into the movements, breathe deeply, and release tension from your body and mind. 

    This 45-minute practice is joint-friendly, making it perfect for anyone with past injuries, arthritis, or other joint issues. And the benefits don’t stop there. It’s also been shown to reduce pain, elevate mood, improve sleep, and reduce stress. Restorative yoga is also effective at improving quality of life and mental well-being in cancer patients. 

    Because you won’t be sweating the way you do in more athletic yoga classes, increase the comfort by wearing your coziest clothes like a sweatshirt and leggings. You might even want to bring a blanket to cocoon inside for certain poses. 

    Whether you’re new to yoga in general or used to faster-paced types, give a restorative yoga class a try. You’ll come away relaxed, refreshed, and feeling healthier than ever.

    What to Expect

    Low Impact
    Static Poses
    Lower Body Focus

    Yin Yoga

    Looking for a way to unwind after your busy day? Searching for a peaceful, relaxed yoga experience? Treat yourself to a slower-paced, joint-friendly workout when you join a Yin class. This slow-moving, meditative practice blends Chinese medicine with postures held much longer than in other forms of yoga, from about 45 seconds up to 5 minutes. Practitioners see increased flexibility, better circulation, reduced stress, and increased mindfulness. 

    Created in the 1970s by martial artist and yoga teacher Paulie Zink, the practice is based on the Taoist principles of “yin and yang,” representing forces that are both complementary and opposing. The “yin” is represented by passive, slow-moving practices with a focus on stiff joints and connective tissues, while the “yang” represents more active, dynamic practices centered on the body’s muscles and blood flow. 

    The static poses of Yin are designed to stimulate different “meridians,” or energy pathways while cultivating inner calm and stillness and tapping into one’s “primal self.”

    Unlike other forms of yoga, Yin consists of a variety of low-impact floor poses held for long periods of time and performed without much muscle movement. Classes are 45 minutes long and focused primarily on the lower body. This is a great option for those new to yoga or anyone looking for increased mobility and improved health without unwanted joint stress. Suitable for all levels.

    What to Expect

    60 Minute Class
    90-Degree Heat
    Suitable for All Levels

    Heated power yoga

    Turn up the heat and harness the power of perspiration with this invigorating practice designed to improve your mood, build muscle and increase flexibility while you sweat out the stress of the day. Heated Power takes the endurance and high calorie burn of Power Yoga and turns up the heat. Your heart, muscles, and lungs will get a great workout while the 90-degree room acts as a pre-heated oven, gently warming your muscles to make them pliable so you can stretch deeper than ever before.

    Worried about the heat? Don’t. This isn’t a sauna (150 degrees) or even a Bikram class (105 degrees). Heated Power is more like a warm summer day, a gentle heat nearer to your natural body temperature so you can enjoy increased blood flow and soft, pliable muscles without overheating. We recommend coming in a little early to acclimate to the heat and allow your muscles to stretch and soften like a rubber band. The more warmed up the muscles are, the more ease you’ll discover in your practice.

    Concerned about slipping? Bring a towel. Wrap it around your sweaty arm or leg for support or use it to mop up the sweat from your mat before placing your hand or foot in the desired spot. Or invest in special yoga gloves and socks, with grips to reduce slipping. We also recommend drinking plenty of water before, during, and after your Heated Power class and replenishing your electrolytes with a sports drink, leafy greens, or watery fruits like watermelon or cucumber after your session. Classes are 60 minutes and suitable for yogis of all levels. 

    Go ahead, add some heat to your yoga practice.

    What to Expect

    60 Minute Class
    90-Degree Heat
    Focus on Posing

    Heated slow burn yoga

    Want to level up your slow-moving vinyasa practice? Crank up the heat. This practice takes the poses you’re already familiar with and slows them down for added toning and burn. And with the thermostat set at a tropical 90 degrees, you’ll sweat out toxins and stress while you sink deeper into the movements. You’ll increase your flexibility and range of motion and the sweat on your towel after class will let you know you’ve definitely gotten a great workout. 

    And your mind will thank you, too. A warm, cozy room and the challenge of a new practice can do wonders for your mental well-being. A 2018 study found that sedentary adults who took 16 weeks of hot yoga classes experienced reduced stress, improved quality of life, and a renewed sense of control over their lives. A 2017 study also found it an effective tool for battling depression.

    Heated yoga is not recommended for everyone. People with conditions including heart disease, diabetes, arterial abnormalities, or a history of fainting, and those who are pregnant or who suffer from low blood pressure or low blood sugar should consult their doctor before taking a heated yoga class.

    What to Expect

    60 Minute Class
    90-Degree Heat
    High Intensity

    Heated Sculpt yoga

    Want to transform your body? Adding weights to your yoga workout will give you results you can see. This 60-minute practice is packed with intensity, challenge, and sweat for benefits including sleek, toned muscles, increased calorie burn, and amped-up stamina. It doubles the strength work by adding free weights to the body-weight work common to yoga for an effective, compact workout that will chisel defined muscles and turn heads.

    And don’t forget the heat. Cranking the thermostat up to 85-90 degrees adds even more challenge. Your heart and lungs will work harder, torching calories and improving your overall metabolism. The heat will warm your muscles, so you can stretch deeper than you thought possible. 

    There are mental benefits too. Hot yoga practitioners report elevated mood, reduced stress and less depression. It’s also been shown to improve bone density, which declines naturally as we age and can result in broken bones and osteoporosis. Heated yoga can also control blood glucose, making it a great option for anyone at risk for Type 2 diabetes. Some yogis even find that the increased sweat leads to better circulation, which shows itself in nourished skin and clear complexions.

    This is a trauma-informed class so no hands-on assists and students are especially encouraged to listen to feedback from their bodies and do what feels healing, gentle, and good.
