Yoga, as practiced in the United States, does not hold true to the actual traditions of yoga as it is known in India. With this in mind, please be aware that the yoga taught at Conscious Living is very basic asana (yoga postures), breath work, and basic philosophy for living. We strive to bring as many of the 8 Limbs of Yoga into our practice, and recognize that the term “yoga” is overly generalized and popularized to reflect our culture in the US.

The various classes offered at Conscious Living focus on structural aspects of the asana, ensuring that the posture is supported with muscular tone and ideal alignment. Breath is a key focus for the practice, and maintaining the ability to consistently practice a 3-part breath during asana enhances the benefits of asana on the body and mind. When philosophy is brought in to the practice, Emily has trained with practitioners who have dedicated their lives to the study of both Kriya Yoga and Tantrica. Again, the US has created a twisted perception on the philosophy of yoga. If you would like more information on Tantric Yoga, please visit www.rajanaka.com. For Kriya yoga, please visit www.yogakirya.org for more information.

Postpartum Yoga

After Emily’s second child, the postpartum depression that she experienced was significantly more challenging than with the first. One of the keys to moving out of this was practicing yoga. While there were no classes available specific to the postpartum period, the gentle guidance and compassion of her teachers helped her to bring more awareness to her emotions, finding balance and courage to move forward each day.

Emily brings this experience to each of her postpartum yoga classes. Guiding her participants to their breath, back to their bodies, finding their own compassion and strengths as they navigate parenthood through the practice of asana and meditation.

Disclaimer: If you have diastasis from your pregnancy, please be advised that this class may not be ideal for you. It is imperative that you work with a Physical Therapist trained in healing diastasis. There are many core movements that can strain the abdominal muscles rather than aid in healing them. Please contact Emily if you have further questions.

Corrective Posture Yoga

Posture is so much more than having a straight spine and lifted head. Individuals with “correct” posture often still have pain and struggle to find balance in their bodies. Ideal posture is not correct for every body type. In this class, you will learn the key components to using your body to hold asana is accordance to how your body feels. We focus on muscular tone and engagement in ways that will translate into how you hold yourself and move every day.

This yoga class or private session holds asana for longer periods of time, versus the popular vinyasa flow that is commonly taught in most yoga studios. Holding postures while maintaining easy breath, engaging muscles to support the posture, and pulling back in the posture so that proper alignment versus “getting into the pose” is a focus, all teach the body awareness needed to correct posture and aid you in moving out of pain and into a space of strength and balance.

These classes may also use foam rollers or balls to aid in opening the body, creating both length by opening up the fascial layers of the body and aiding in core strength.

Gentle Yoga

In this class, as with the other yoga classes, we take our time. This class is focused on the more simple postures and resting in each one. You may still find yourself challenged and alignment is still a focus, but breath and settling into each pose is the main goal. The room is darkened and your job is to go within to increase your self-awareness as you move into and out of each posture gently and with mindfulness.

Class starts with an intention and meditation to set the space for your practice. You will learn how to maintain integrity in each pose and leave with a feeling of spaciousness and balance in your body and mind.
