Class Descriptions


Aerial Yoga

Aerial yoga incorporates a traditional yoga flow while allowing yourself to go deeper in postures, encouraging proper alignment with the support of a light, soft silk hammock that supports 1500lbs.  The fabric supports the body allowing decompression, proper alignment, building strength, self-trust and self-confidence.  Newcomers enjoy working with the sling feeling little pressure or stress on the joints, particularly the spine.  Inversions are easily accessed in supported gravity with no strain on the neck, back or shoulders.  Core muscles fire without even realizing it’s a great workout. Aerial yoga is an all levels authentic energizing and healing experience.

Aerial Rest and Restore

Laying in the aerial silk like a hammock slightly above the floor you melt into the body feeling weightless. Allowing yourself to float through a gentle slow flow of yoga movements deepening the connection of the breath as you find deeper spinal flexibility. Completing the class resting in gentle massage and Yoga Nidra; a yogic sleep more rejuvenating than any nap!

Ayurveda and Yoga workshops

Connecting the ancient, time-tested wisdom of Ayurveda with the physical and spiritual teachings of yoga for a holistic wellness practice. Beginning with a brief discussion of daily practices to improve health, wellness and lifestyle. Followed by a light yoga sequence, and soothing meditation. This workshop will empower you to become more aware and open to take your wellness into your own hands. 

Flow Yoga

Flow yoga is a graceful choreographed fluid sequence of postures and movements gliding in and out of poses to lively music allowing for full range of motion with kinesics quality.  Accessible to all levels Flow Yoga or more commonly known as Vinyasa Flow incorporates vital breath work and the use of holds to build strength and concentration. This style of yoga is based on many popular styles such as Ashtanga, Baptiste and Beryl Binder Birch.

Good Morning Sunshine

Start the day right with a total mind and body flow. Opening up the energy channels of the body through waking up the spine and tuning into your breath and senses. Replenishing the body feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day. 

Guided Meditation

Being guided with verbal cues, visualization and instruction allows one to enter a deep state of relaxation physically, emotionally, and mentally. Unwinding and unplugging the mind, eliminating stress and bringing a positive change to one’s life are just a few of the benefits of learning to meditate. Many ancient techniques will be explored as we learn to find inner stillness and peace.  This class will prepare you to learn and bring techniques of meditation into your own personal practice.

New Moon Yoga & Intention Setting Meditation

The New Moon brings with it all the possibilities of new beginnings. Using Moon Salutations, guided meditation, sankalpa and deep relaxation we will connect to this powerful energy and propel your life forward by using the power of intention and manifestation. 

 

Power yoga

Using breath with movement and longer postural holds, this style of yoga asana heats up the entire body through a constant and fast paced flow. Building stamina and strength through faster movements at the same time increasing flexibility. A great class for practitioners looking to go to the next level and gain endurance.

Prana Flow

Prana Flow is a liberating, evolutionary, rhythmic, vinyasa flow class that encompasses mudra, chanting, bandha, pranayama, meditation, asana, kriya and a whole lot of fun. Students of all levels are empowered to experience prana - the universal source of breath, life-energy and conscious intelligence - as the navigating source of yoga practice and vital living.

Spa Yoga

Starting the class by finding and noticing the breath, the body moves through a slow flow of the five elements of earth, water, fire, air and ether allowing yourself to flow through each of the postures. Enjoying the tranquil surrounds of a spa atmosphere with soft candle lighting, tranquil music, hands on assisting, and aromatherapy. Creating a calm relaxed state in the mind and body, reaching a deeper state of rest by ending class with a guided meditation and assisted Thai yoga massage.  

Water Workout

Take an hour out of your busy workday and get a work out while being refreshed in the pool at Mahogany Bay Village’s Bay Club. An energizing playful water class using floats and dance to feel weightless in and out of the water. Allowing the body to flow effortlessly with the movement of the water this workout is safe, fun and challenging.

Yin Restorative Yoga

Yin Yoga incorporates a slow passive practice of seated, prone or supine poses. Yin poses are usually held for 3-5 minutes allowing the student to go deeper in the posture to release the fascia and connective tissue around the joints and bones rather than the muscles. While concentrating on the breath your body is nurtured in postures with props including bolsters, blankets, blocks, straps and eye pillows allowing your body, mind, and spirit to reach a calm restful state. 

12 Postures Yoga

A traditional form of Sivananda yoga, beginning with the connection of the breath along with gentle Sun Salutations to loosen and warm up the body before practicing 12 basic postures. Focusing on preserving the health and wellness of the student this flow emphasizes concentration, reducing stress, and receiving a peaceful meditative state. 


I have done yoga for years and it’s a staple in my life but I can TELL YOU THIS, I ADORE the Aerial Yoga class at Mahogany Bay Village. I have never been able to stretch like that and it pulls you naturally into the greatest poses and stretches. Paulette has done a fabulous job on this facility and Kerry Ann is an amazing, caring, thoughtful, intuitive instructor that knows her stuff! I cannot WAIT for the next class! A MUST!!
