each vinyasa teacher at ritual house will guide you through a unique expression of ‘vinyasa’ based on their individual training, practice, and experience.
our vinyasa classes adopt a more accelerated pace than our hatha classes. the heat level (if any) will be noted for each class individually in our online scheduler.
if you are brand new to yoga, we recommend registering for a one-on-one or small group lesson with one of our experienced teachers. we also offer
yoga tune up ® : releasing stuck spots of tension in your connective tissue & in particularly tight muscles will allow for more easeful, integrated movement. with a dedicated practice, your body will open to new levels of strength, flexibility, and stability as your deep-seeded relationship to stress and tension shifts
all levels welcome
both yin and restorative forms of yoga asana are slow paced. in these classes you to focus on maybe 10 different poses for the entire class. both forms of practice aim to calm the mind and nervous system as an end goal, requesting you to turn inward, and focus on your breath.
in traditional Restorative yoga your body will supported by props to encourage complete relaxation and a down-shift in your nervous system.
Yin yoga differs in that it is restorative, but less passive. Yin yoga uses the long held yoga poses to work deep in to your body’s connective tissues, activating change in a profound but subtle way.
practicing these passive postures is a nice compliment to the more active (yang) poses found in a vinyasa class. challenge your mind to be at peace within physical stillness...
suitable for all levels
our weekly schedule lists multiple restorative classes. some are more restorative in nature, and some are more yin in nature depending on the teacher’s background.
we offer monthly restorative and yin focused workshops as well. visit our events page for more details!
during a sound bath you are laying in a room surrounded by a chorus of vibrations that help you achieve deep states of relaxation, where the brain entrains to the meditative theta state and the body moves into a process of healing and repairing itself. you may experience emotional release as the vibrations help move blockages that have been stuck in your energy body, as well as physical sensations. during a typical sound bath you will be laying on the floor in a comfortable position while the waves of sound wash over you. it is a good idea to bring something to lay on such as a yoga mat, and to bring a blanket, pillows, and anything else you may need to feel comfortable on the floor.
bring something soft to lay on/with such as a yoga mat, blanket, pillows, and anything else you may need to feel comfortable laying on the floor for an hour.
in this style of class, each yoga posture (asana) is generally held longer than in our vinyasa style classes, offering you a different perspective from which to explore breath, energy, and alignment. our hatha classes are a good style to try if you are working on building strength in deep stabilizing muscles and stability in your joints.
hatha is a great style of yoga for any level of practitioner. new students have more time in each posture to learn and refine alignment, while seasoned practitioners enjoy having more time to explore subtlties of each asana.
if you have no yoga experience, this is a good style of class to start with. please tell your teacher that you are brand new to yoga when you arrive to class, so they can better support you in learning!
