TreeHouse Yoga Center

Better breathing since 1991



Schedule of Classes - APRIL 2016

Our yoga classes provide an opportunity for growth and awareness. Every yoga class includes breathing, movement, stretching, and relaxation. We keep our classes small so that we can provide individual help and encouragement. We support you in moving at your own pace. At the TreeHouse, yoga is not a competitive sport; it is a process of opening and exploring. Yoga can be practiced in an amazing array - from very, very gently to exceptional degrees of strength and stamina. We encourage you to try as many different classes as you can. If you have questions about what practices would be most appropriate for you, please do not hestitate to contact us: namaste@treehouseyoga.com or call 813.932.5456

We offer both OPEN, ONGOING classes (Class Packages and Drop-in) and CLOSED SESSIONS (Pre-registered, fixed dates and times) All classes include time for questions and relaxation practice. Classes are 90 minutes unless otherwise noted.

SESSIONS are a great way to begin or renew your yoga practice. Class size is limited to 8 students to maximize the learning curve. We work with students as individuals, even in the group setting.

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

Beginning Yoga/Yoga Basics is the starting place for most people. In these classes you learn breathing and relaxation, the basic poses and the Sun Salutation which form the core of hatha yoga practice.

Gentle Yoga is slower and more gentle than Yoga Basics. These classes are intended for people who are primarily wanting stress reduction or who are experiencing illness, injury or chronic pain.

Restorative Practice Become more grounded, focused and at peace. This meditative practice cultivates balance between body and mind as it helps dissolve physical and mental tensions. Students will be guided through a sequence of supported, soothing, quieting poses. Props such as blankets, bolsters, and cushions will be used to provide a supportive environment for total relaxation in each pose. Take time to stop doing, just be, and de-stress! The class will end with a short Yoga Nidra, also known as yogic sleep, during which students will be guided through a meditation that involves body sensing, intention setting, and awareness.

Sunrise Yoga - Wake up and greet the sun as it rises over the Hillsborough River. All levels.

Real World Yoga Learn to integrate yoga into your daily life. A progressive class for those with experience of basic postures and breathing practices.

Liquid Flow A seemless exploration of vinyasa. Transitions and sequences for those with some experience.

Midday Hatha Join us for a shorter lunch time yoga class in which we explore asana through repetition and movements that build on each other.  Classes may include use of mantras and short yoga flows balanced by opportunities to tune in and connect.

Weight Loss Yoga includes yoga postures, breathing and relaxation techniques and other tools for safe and effective weight loss and a healthier life. This class is intended is for students who meet the following criteria: greater than 35lbs overweight, difficulty getting up and down off of the floor and become out of breath with mild exercion. Beginner classes are recommended for students who are overweight unless you feel uncomfortable in them or meet the criteria listed. If you have questions about this class, yoga and weight loss or which classes are right for you, please contact the TreeHouse at 813.932.5456. Weight Loss sessions meet for six weeks, twice per week.

Mysore Ashtanga TreeHouse is pleased to provide a community space for those who wish to practice Mysore Style (also known as self practice) Ashtanga Yoga. In this style of Yoga, the student practices at his or her own level and pace. Students learn the Ashtanga series in the traditional add-on method. Whether you are new to yoga or an experienced student, this invigorating traditional practice is a great way to start the day.

Elements of Self Practice - Want to learn to practice on your own but not sure where to start? Already practicing on your own but have questions? Familiarity with basic postures and breathing practices is necessary.

Flowing Yoga (Active Beginner -> Advanced) classes at The TreeHouse are lively, energetic classes synchronizing breath with movement which improves strength, flexibility and concentration. Flowing yoga classes are appropriate for active beginners through advanced students. Modified versions of more challenging postures will always be given. Every class is a little different, involving a creative and eclectic mix of traditional yoga poses designed for you to challenge yourself.

Active Beginners is designed for people who are active in other activities but who are new to yoga. Note: Active DOES NOT mean flexible :-)

Yin Yoga is a quiet, meditative practice in which students are guided through gentle long held postures that target the connective tissues and joints of the hips, thighs, and lower spinal area. Yin Yoga helps maintain the health of the connective tissues, and helps us develop a mindful meditative practice. By stretching the connective tissues, it promotes the flow of Prana (energy) through the energy channels of the body. It is a wonderful complement to a more vigorous yoga practice, running, cycling, or other more active pursuits.

Create Your Own Class - Small Group - Any group or 4 or more students can request a class designed specifically designed for you at a time and day of your choosing. A minimum of 4 weeks is required. Your class can be anything you wish: beginner, power, gentle, alignment, strength, flow, core focus, balance, relaxation, advanced practices...

Private Yoga classes are available. Please call the TreeHouse for more information.
