CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Prana Shakti Flow is a vinyasa flow yoga style with a very specific and deliberate sequencing method that focuses on the energetic qualities of the postures. The Prana Shakti Flow sequence brings awareness to the wisdom of the body by building upon the principles of each type of posture. Each posture in the sequence builds upon the alignment principles taught in the previous one. As the sequence progresses, the body has already become familiar with the specific movements needed. In addition, the appropriate muscles have been targeted so the body is physically ready to move to another, perhaps more challenging pose.

Safety is the key component to the building blocks of this class. There are no ‘yoga tricks’ or fancy sequences needed to keep a student interested.

The energetic principles are based in the Yin Yang philosophy. Just as the symbol represents two halves becoming the whole, this class incorporates the energies that already exists within us and brings our awareness to it by the specific order in which the postures are taught.By bringing attention to the physical alignment of the body and combining that with awareness to the active and passive energies within the body, the focus turns inward. From there a deeper understanding of ourselves as a whole begins.

Beginner/Intermediate, Foundations and Basics Flow will focus on the alignment principles of all the standard yoga postures that set up the foundation for all the others. What makes this class unique is the way you will learn these yoga postures. Instead of just learning each pose individually, you will learn the principles of each type of pose and understand how to apply these principles in every pose. If you ever wondered why your wrists hurt in downward facing dog or why there is pain in your lower back when doing back bends, then this is the class for you. The knowledge gained in this class will enable you to modify or deepen any posture safely and at the pace that is appropriate for you!
In the Beginner/Intermediate class a slow, detailed flow is introduced.

Prana Shakti Power™ – If you are looking for an invigorating experience that will stimulate your body and help you reach toward your highest level of consciousness and physical awareness, you have found the right class!

While we will work hard and sweat, principles of ALL postures will be covered so that a mixed level of practitioners can feel safe and get what they need. Inversions and arm balance postures will be included in the sequence in there full and basic forms.

Suitable for all practitioners who are familiar with vinyasa flow.

Stretch & Breath will offer practitioners the perfect combination to de-stress and unwind. We begin with gentle, restorative stretches leading into a guided meditation. Yogic philosophy tidbits will be woven into the class and contemplated while in meditation leading to an experience of deep relaxation and a deeper understanding of self.

ALL CLASSES ARE INSTRUCTED BY LAURIE AHLEMANN

The best way to describe my class is it gives you a strong foundation from which to work. While I do teach binds, inversions and arm balances and many students have had ‘firsts’ in my class, that is not my primary focus.

I think it is important to really feel the muscle integration in the basic postures first – the ones we do all the time – downward facing dog, warrior II, side plank, to name a few. It is in these postures that we learn the proper integration of all the muscle groups required for the specific pose being practiced.

Our muscles get ‘smarter’ as they move in similar patterns over and over again so that when they are called upon to do the same action in a strong pose such as handstand they meet it with ‘oh yeah, I remember this’, and while the pose is not easy there is an easeful quality to it.

The postures are like a pyramid. If we build on a weak foundation, it won’t take long to crumble. If we think of the ‘basic’ postures as our foundation that we will build upon, we can see how making it as strong as possible is the key to longevity – keeping us injury-free and building a solid physical practice.

“I just wanted to tell you how much I loved meditation class this week, and that your blog is great! I like the idea of themed classes and I never really had a themed class before life with Long Island Yoga School. I also told you last week, but I will say it again; I love the teacher training! It has been a really amazing experience so far and I am happy with the decision to do it through your school. Each part of it is so interesting and I love that we are getting the complete exposure to all the facets of yoga as a life practice. Thank you for putting together this beautiful program. I feel so lucky to be part of it. – Rosanne S – 2009
