Fort Collins Yoga & Meditation Classes
Holistic yoga addresses all aspects of a person’s health; mental, physical, & subtle…
In an exquisite integration of breath, movement, strength, balance and meditation we create yoga classes which help to bring the whole person into a state of equanimity. Our classes are appropriate for all levels unless otherwise noted.
Although HYS is primarily a Yoga Teacher Certification Center, we open many of our weekly classes and retreats to the general community. We invite you to join us at any of the classes listed below!
(May be used to attend any 1-2 hour classes)
1 hour class: $10.00
1.5 hour class: $12.50
2 hour class: $15.00
You can pay with cash, check or credit card.
We have a limited number of spaces in all our classes, and they fill up quickly! For this reason we ask you to please pre-register online whenever possible, and if you have to cancel please do so at least 24 hours before the start of the class so that your slot may be given to someone on the waiting list. If you are not able to pre-register, you’re welcome to drop-in for class anyways, just be aware that you may not be able to participate if the class is already full. ***We reserve the right to cancel any class on the schedule if there are zero participants enrolled in the class within 24 hours of it’s scheduled date/time. You will be able to tell that a class is canceled because it will no longer show up on this calendar or the mindbody scheduler.***
Please bring into the studio only what you will need for class, leaving your personal belongings, keys, cell phone, etc in one of the lockers downstairs. Try to arrive at least five minutes prior to the start time of class, as we do lock the front door when class begins!
Om Shanti – Peace – Peace – Peace
The following Private and Semi-Private (up to 8 people) classes are also available for online booking:
Meditation is a way to access the stillness and equanimity within, that genuine space inside all of us where we feel in harmony, where we come into alignment with the world. It is this deep connection that enables us to maintain our clarity and understanding, helping us to find our peace. In this class participants are gently guided through the process of physical and mental relaxation using breath awareness, mantra, and various other techniques as described and guided by the teacher.
- Hatha classes emphasize strength and balance with meditation and full-yogic breathing. Spinal integrity and body alignment are practiced as each posture is held for an extended period of time, from 5 breaths up to several minutes per pose.
- Breath-synchronized movements help us to peel off tension in the body and mind, revealing freedom of movement and freedom of spirit. Based on the Ashtanga tradition, the vinyasa sequences are powerfully uplifting and flowing.
- Many props are utilized to support the body in passive stretches. Postures are held for extended lengths of time, usually between three and up to fifteen minutes per pose. Most of the yin postures are sitting or lying, and are meant for complete relaxation and rejuvenation.
- The classes can be modified to address a student’s interests, current health status, personal goals, etc. Please feel free to make requests for special considerations. We can also modify the class sequence to emphasize specific postures (e.g. a back-bending or hip-opening), or create specialty classes to meet the needs of the students (Pre-Natal, Children’s Yoga, Physical Limitations, etc.)
