Be Here. Be Home.

Rose Avila, RYT 200

I’m Rose, a certified RYT200, I found Yoga after I was medically released from the military. I was looking for an alternative to the conventional medicine treatments I was receiving. I took a few Yoga classes and it was almost instantly that I began to feel relief. I feel my Yoga journey began when I came to Yoga Mat in November 2015. I was amazed at how many wonderful people took a class and felt so amazing. I went through the RYT 200 Training so that I could continue to learn to share my love and deep connection with Yoga. And by the way, I love that the journey will never end!!!

Rose Avila, RYT 200 instructs the following:
  • New Beginnings
  • We are all beginners! This class is a refreshing class for both beginners and for those with some experience. This class will include basic breathing exercises (pranayama) and foundational poses.  Gentle, basic stretching and strengthening for the entire body with brief resting postures between active poses.  This class will develop a balanced asana practice, improved pranayama, and cultivate a meditative mind to create the space to access your own inner rhythm and heart wisdom.

    This class is beginner-focused, however all levels are welcome.  Class may vary by teacher. Prenatal friendly

    Temperature:  80-85F (Light Heat)

  • Restore with Rose
  • Taking time to pause in the middle of the week is like taking a mini vacation to reset the body mind releasing tension areas. 
    Restorative yoga focuses on relaxing the body in restful postures.  Note that "rest" is different than sleep. Rest provides the body an opportunity to renew and heal.  Countless studies have proven the physical and emotional benefits of this.
    75 minute cass. Warm room 75-80 degrees. Music to enhance the relaxation response.  Occasionally incense or oils may be used to help calm the body mind 

  • Mindful Yama
  • This is a slow flow beginner yoga class.  Focus is on introducing pranayama techniques, mindful stretching and meditation.
    Expect to feel refreshed, calm and centered after this class, which takes a gentle approach to practicing yoga.  In this class we emphasize cultivating mindfulness as we integrate postures, body alignment, breath awareness, and meditation.  
    While this class is a wonderful class for beginners to learn and practice the basics, it is also a great for seasoned practitioners.  Exploring the internal nature of the yoga poses--how they feel, rather than how they look.
