The Lifelong Practice of Yoga

Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice that originated in India. The ultimate goal of practicing yoga is to attain tranquility in the mind and spirit, and making this goal achievable by means of yoga poses and meditation. It has a holistic orientation in that yoga is practiced physically, but its benefits extend to the mental and spiritual being. If you want the answers to what is yoga and what its benefits are, practicing it yourself is the best way to learn.

The Right Class For You

At True Center Yoga we currently have 5 instructors. Each instructor has a unique style of bringing yoga to the community.

  • Warm Core Flow and Vinyasa Flow: These 75minute, warm classes taught by Emily Harvey Dooley are intended to cultivate focus, strength and balance. They are taught in a room heated to 80-85 degrees. the instruction offers modification for most levels, but the class is quicker paced and intended to get the muscles warm and the heart pumping. The instructor weaves yoga principles and themes into movement a breath for a complete practice.
  • Essential Alignment: This class is a recommended foundation class for those looking to have more time spent in finding the specific muscle engagements and placement of the essential postures of yoga. The instructor also use traditional yoga theory and concepts to add depth this 75 minute class.  Some students use this class as preparation for the Warm Flow classes or simple choose this class as their weekly practice. Emily Harvey Dooley and Ashley Outlaw.
  • Vinyasa Flow- Connect your breath with your movement as you stretch, strengthen and rejuvenate your body and mind. You will strengthen all areas of your body, work to improve balance and flexibility and leave feeling blissful after a sweet savasana that ends this flowing practice. All levels are welcome as the instructor gives modifications for all abilities so you can personalize your practice.

  • Gentle Flow- Connect your breath with your movement in this slow flowing class. Although less vigorous then Vinyasa Flow students will work to increase strength and flexibility and improve balance. All levels are welcome.
  • Chair Yoga- This is the perfect practice to stretch, strengthen and rejuvenate your body and mind with out getting down on the floor. Students will use chairs to support and balance themselves in both seated and standing poses. No experience necessary.
  • Teen/tween Classes- Build Self-confidence and positive self-image, find inner peace and learn healthy ways to combat stress by strengthening body, mind and spirit. Teens will explore yoga poses and practices in a fun, upbeat and non-judgmental environment. Classes are divided by gender.
  • Kids Yoga- An exploration of yoga and movement through stories, songs and games. Children will learn basic yoga poses while improving balance, coordination and focus in a fun and playful environment. 4-8yo.
  • BeginningYoga- Sylvie Desautels and Ashley Outlaw For people who are new to yoga or could benefit from a thorough review of the fundamentals of yoga. We build poses slowly from week to week with basic yoga philosophy of the Yamas and Niyamas as a foundation. No experience is necessary.
  • Level 1- Sylvie Desautels Ideal for beginners who are ready to expand their repertoire of poses. Each class begins with a long warm up. Basic poses and simple breathing practices are taught with methodical alignment and body awareness. A theme from yoga philosophy is threaded through the class.
  • Level 2 -Sylvie Desautels- Students are well versed in standing poses, basic seated poses and back bends and are ready to explore inversions, more vigorous posture flow sequences and longer holds. Pranayama (breathing control) is integrated into the practice and students are encouraged to practice on their own.
  • Kundalini Yoga- Miss Amanda -Known as the Yoga of Awareness,  the focus is on how poses and movements feel, not how they look. This ancient practice is designed to build your pranamaya kosha (energy body) and stimulate your endocrine system as well as stretch and strengthen your muscles. Kundalini yoga practice includes asana (physical postures) as well as mantra (sound), pranayama (breathwork), and mudra (hand positions) in a sequence called a kriya. Some kriyas are slow and contemplative, some are dynamic and challenging - all are transformative. All levels—even beginners—will flourish during this mystical workout, which focuses on building stamina and connecting with your spirit more than on accomplishing advanced physical postures.  
  • Yin Yoga is a complementary yoga practice to the more dynamic and invigorating yoga styles that are predominant today. In Yin Yoga, floor postures are held passively for several minutes in order to access a safe and positive 'stress' on the deep layers of connective tissue in the body. Physically, Yin Yoga restores and maintains the natural mobility of the joints, primarily between the navel and the knees. Energetically, Yin Yoga opens the body's meridian system, which enhances the body's energetic flow and supports emotional equilibrium. And as this practice emphasizes stillness and silence, Yin Yoga prepares both the body and the mind for deeper experiences in meditation.
  • All Levels Yoga   is a mindful yoga that builds flexibility, intelligence, and strength while helping students to deepen their relationship with their authentic self. This will be a slow paced class with detailed alignment instruction and demonstration. Poses will be broken down in order for beginners to learn proper alignment and more advanced students to deepen their own practice.
  • Tai Chi/ Chi Gung Chi Gung or Qi Gong

    translates as energy work an art of breath work combined with simple, natural body movements and the regulation of the mind.

    There are two kinds of qi that flow inside the body: 1. Post-heaven qi (yin and yang organ qi), also called zhen qi

    , which flows in the 12 meridians and gives power to function biological duty and maintain healthy condition 2. Pre-heaven qi, also known as yuan qi, flows inside the eight extraordinary meridians and maintains the quality of life and spirituality. There is another kind of qi around the body called primordial qi, or hun yuan qi. Primordial qi appears as a field that protects human energy from invasion and infection. Primordial qi also helps us to communicate with others as well as with nature. Humans live in the Qi like fish swim in the water every moment.

    Tai Chi Chuan (Tai Ji Quan)

    is a physical movement form that follows the principles and theory of tai chi under the philosophy of Daoism; while simultaneously working with the eight characters of movement (ba gua) and eight forces to produce qi and jing. These thirteen characters of “jing” are developed from the motion of breath, body and mind. Tai chi also moves in five ways which are: center, left, right, back and front; along with yin yang motion and energy like “void and solid, still and motion, up and down, intense and relaxed, hard and soft…” The form of tai chi balances and harmonizes the yin and yang, soft and hard, two types of quality of qi in the body.

    Dao Yin

    Ancient Chinese people imitated the movement of animals in nature in order to maintain the smooth flow of blood and qi. This practice prevents illness which leads to a long and healthy life. Dao yin uses a combination of methods to cultivate qi such as regulating the breath while stretching the body. Popular forms include eight pieces of brocades and five animal play, however there are hundreds of different forms. Dao yin is easy to perform, with each single movement having its own health benefit. Similar to yoga, dao yin is very popular in China and the rest of the world today.

    Nei Jia Chaun (Kung Fu)

    Learn to Move like a Dragon, Sit like a Tiger, and Yield like Lighting, Yin and Yang united.

    Liang Yi, also known as Tai Yi or Tai Chi Long Fist, is a Wu Dang Internal Kung Fu (Nei Jia Chuan) style. It is a technique to train hands, eyes, body, foot work and explosive power (Hun Yuan Jin) for internal martial artists. Characteristically it combines fast and slow, soft and hard movements and teaches the student to move like a dragon, sit like a tiger, and yield like lighting. It applies softness to overcome hardness, stillness to restrict motion, following the opponent's energy to strike back. It is a very practical self-defense art. All Wu Dang martial artists are required to practice Liang Yi. Kung Fu forms and martial applications. These forms will be only taught to students without physical limitations and can endure the training.A great cardio complement to Tai Chi practice and leads to the discovery of the martial roots of Tai Chi Chuan the Supreme Ultimate Fist.
