Hatha Energy Alignment with Marty Tribble (90 Min.) All Levels

Hatha refers to a more classical approach to asana (physical posture) practice, including pranayama (breathwork), meditation, and a focus on balance between the active and receptive qualities of the practice. Energy Alignment refers to Marty Tribble's unique approach to asana alignment and energetic awareness through the vayus (five winds). Experience an accessible asana practice rooted in the six movements of the spine, with a focus aligning and liberating movement through the vayus, or natural directions of movement of energy in the body. By consciously participating in what occurs naturally in the body, you will quickly begin to experience stability and ease, accessing an authentic level of deep strength that promotes the resolution of negative energy while recharging the body and mind. Marty Tribble, E-RYT, developed this unique approach to asana practice based on her discoveries during the past 12 years of leadership in the yoga classroom, personal study and lots and lots of practice. By tuning in and observing, she allows her body to do what is does best--guide the way toward healing, balance and true strength. Hatha Energy Alignment is simply a way to share with you what she has quantified in her own quiet, yet powerful, at-home practice. A major benefit to this practice is that it is consistent, allowing the body and mind and grounded, familiar space from which to heal, grown and expand. Each session includes cultivation of awareness, pranayama, asana (floor postures, Marty's signature "happy body flow," sun salutations a + b, standing postures, and savasana), and morsels of wisdom that Marty has gathered along the path of teaching.

Yin Yoga + Live Music with Marty Tribble & John Arms (90 Min.) All Levels

Yin energetics (calming, introspective, listening, cooling, lunar) are the counterbalance to Yang energetics (activating, external, talking, heating, solar). Yin Yoga practice is very therapeutic for chronic stress, tension, inflammation and pain. Accessible seated, kneeling, or reclined poses are sustained between 2-5 minutes to elongate connective tissue, benefiting the yin tissues such as joints, fascia, bursa, ligaments, and tendons of the body. When yin tissues have too much yang (think overuse), they are often diagnosed with an ‘-itis’ condition, like arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, etc. Yin yoga supports the body’s natural ability to rebalance from an overabundance of yang energy, bringing a sense of calm to the mind and grounding to the body. This class is accompanied by soothing live music with John Arms (gentle guitar, vocals, steel tongue drum).
All levels are welcome, no prior yoga experience is needed for this gentle practice.
