TreeHouse Yoga Center

Better breathing since 1991



Schedule of Classes - OCTOBER 2014

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

Class Descriptions

We offer both OPEN, ONGOING classes (Class Packages and Drop-in) and CLOSED SESSIONS (Pre-registered, fixed dates and times)

Active Yoga These classes synchronize breath with movement which improves strength, flexibility and concentration. 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. Appropriate for active beginners through advanced students.

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/Restorative 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.

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

Yoga for Meditation - All yoga practice is really preparation for meditation. In this class, we focus on beathing and movements to help practitioners sit with greater ease.

Yoga for Relaxation / Learn to Relax Yoga - A class specifically designed for stress reduction. Learn to notice and reduce your stress reactions through the techniques provided by yoga: breathing, movement and focus.

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.

Beginning 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.

Flow & Restore is 1 hour of vinyasa (flowing) yoga followed by 1/2 hour of restorative yoga. Vinyasa yoga is lively and energetic, and synchronizes breath with movement, which creates inner heat, strength, flexibility and concentration. Modified versions of more challenging postures will always be given. Restorative yoga focuses on relaxing the body in restful postures, often supported by props. This class is appropriate for active beginners through advanced students.

Kitchen Sink - We'll try a little of everything: relaxation, pranayama, meditation and postures with modifications for all students. Posture will include binding and inversion poses for those who would like to try them or work on them.

Open Practice Self-practice in the studio and or on the deck overlooking the Hillsborough River. Whether you have just begun to practice yoga or an experienced student, practicing with the energy of a group is very powerful. Beginners welcome!

Yoga for Meditation Simple postures and breathing practices to open the body in preparation for seated meditation.

SESSIONS are a great way to begin 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. All classes are 90 minutes and include time for questions and relaxation practice. Pre-registration is recommended to reserve your space.

Intro to Yoga / Yoga 101 / Yoga 101 for Active Students sessions are where to begin for most people. Learn to be safe and feel comfortable in any yoga class. Basic breathing techniques and postures are taught along with sun salutations and relaxation practices. These sessions meet for four or six weeks, once per week. Yoga 101 for Active Students is for students who are active in other activities several times per week but are new to yoga. Note: Active DOES NOT mean flexible :-)

Active Beginners is designed for people who are active in other activities several times per week but who are new to yoga. These sessions meet for six weeks, once per week.

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, relaxation, advanced practices...
