Is Yoga for me?

We invite students of all levels at Free Spirit Yoga, with our main focus being Anusara Yoga. Anusara has therapeutic applications and is a wonderful practice for those dealing with injuries or physical limitations. Anusara also provides the alignment and foundation you need to take your yoga practice to the next level. Yoga meets you where you are, and our aim at Free Spirit Yoga is to do just that.

 

Level I – Beginner
 

If you are a yoga beginner, come and learn in a safe, fun, and empowering class. Whether you are 18 or 80, yoga can help you build a strong body and a clear mind, and a calm way to approach life’s daily dilemmas. This class provides students with a thorough introduction to basic yoga postures, a taste of yoga philosophy, and the 5 alignment principles of Anusara Yoga.

This class focuses on standing poses, basic hip openers, and backbends to strengthen and stretch the legs, back, and shoulders. Beginner incorporates 10 minutes of seated meditation at the end with guidance.

 

Level II – Intermediate

In addition to refining the standing poses and seated poses, this class focuses on strengthening and opening the arms and shoulders for inversions (including handstand, headstand, forearm balance and shoulder stand), basic arm balances and backbends (including wheel pose). It is recommended that students be familiar with the Anusara principles of alignment.

 

Level II – Free Style Flow – Intermediate Flow

A flowing class that emphasizes alignment and affirm’s ones highest potential. This is a vigorous Vinyasa-style yoga class, in which breath and movement are connected as a student flows through the poses. It incorporates Anusara alignment while keeping the tempo of the class challenging. Less time is devoted to demonstration and instruction of the poses, so Intermediate Flow students should be comfortable practicing at the Intermediate level or above.

 

Level III – Advanced 


This class introduces more challenging standing poses, backbends and seated poses and includes the regular practice of arm balances and inversions. Advanced students should be able to kick up unassisted to handstand at the wall and push up unassisted into wheel pose. A regular yoga practice outside of class is strongly encouraged.

 

Healing Yoga and Meditation

Healing Yoga is a modern day version of an ancient healing practice incorporating the use of ki-energy to facilitate the awareness of body, mind and breath. This program is designed to involve people of all ages and physical abilities. The series includes simple postures and stretching, breathing techniques, brain balancing exercises, body tapping, visualization and meditation. These techniques are designed to release emotions, open blockages and encourage the free flow of energy in the body. Through awareness, mindfulness and opening of the heart and chakras, energy can circulate, body becomes balanced and healing can be achieved.

 

Teen Yoga

This is a funky yoga class for teens. Feel strong, empowered and energized through the dynamic combination of yoga postures. This class is designed to sculpt your body and make you feel terrific. Develop greater poise, grace and confidence, as well as a more accepting relationship to your body and a positive image of who you are in the world. Teen yoga also teaches you how to de-stress and relax.

 

 Kids Yoga


These unique programs are suitable for children ages 5-12 years. Practice provides many benefits including developing strength, co-ordination, flexibility, balance, and promotion of good posture. It develops confidence, self-respect, self-esteem, and positive mind.

 

Prenatal Yoga

This class provides an opportunity to develop greater vitality and awareness of your body that is home for two, as well as to deepen your relationship with your baby. Gentle postures, breath work, vocal toning and meditation are learned to cultivate flexibility, calm and confidence in preparation for labor and childbirth. Enhance relaxation, comfort and enjoyment. Calm and flexibility ease the birthing process, thus reducing pain and increasing the joy of giving birth. No previous yoga experience necessary.

 

Yoga in the Park


If you have never practiced yoga outdoors you are in for a real treat. You can hear the birds chirping and see the squirrels chasing one and other. When you close your eyes you can feel the warm gentle breeze, looking up above you can see the tall trees and the bright blue sky. The energy is incredible. It is the ultimate natural high to be outside breathing with and being in touch with nature. All summer classes will be taken into the backyard park weather permitting. Yoga in Mississauga, yoga in nature!
