Yin Yoga

Age: Adults
Instructor: Morganne Aaberg
Location: HUB Hale

Description This class begins with a slow flow to warm up the body, moves into deep still stretching (known as Yin Yoga), and ends with a brief practice guided meditation practice known as Yoga Nidra. In the Yin portion of class, students practice deep stretching in a gentle, slow-paced manner. Asana (postures) are mostly seated or lying down, and are held anywhere from lengths of 45 seconds to 7 minutes. By holding postures for long periods of time muscles relax and let go, and puts gentle stress on the deep tissue of the body. By putting small doses of stress on tissues through mindful stretching, the tissues respond by becoming stronger over time, as well as lengthening and improving range of motion. Yin Yogais different than Restorative Yoga because practitioners find an "edge" where they stretch deeply yet sit comfortably for a length of time. Taught with a soundtrack of relaxing music, this class is appropriate for all levels and ages, as each pose is adaptable to many body types and levels of flexibility. Students should bring a mat. If you need to borrow a mat, please call or text the instructor at 808-349-3244 to reserve. This practice can be modified to meet the needs of each individual, so all levels are welcome.

Joanieʻs Pilates

Age: Adults
Instructor: Joanie Collins
Location: HUB Barn

Description: Your focus starts from the center, or "core", then progresses outward, lengthening and decompressing all vertebrae and joints. We will systematically activate all layers of abdominals - the abdominals rectus (six pack, or eight pack, muscles), internal and external oblique's (for a better waistline), and the lower, transverse abdominals (for flatter bellies, and better support of the lower back, central nervous system, and internal organs). Joanie's approach is slow and gentle, breaking down each movement in order to fully understand the purpose and correct execution of each specific Pilates exercise. Pilates encourages you to move from the muscles closest to the bones, creating the long and lean bodies that are healthy, efficient, and "attractive"! The toning and stretching together with releasing tension from the large muscles of the shoulders, lower back and hip flexors leads to ergonomic movement and better sense of well being.
