Temple classes meet you where you are in your daily energy and stress levels to create strength and balance from the inside out.
Classes are offered in Yin or Yang style. A customized schedule finds your personal inner balance by integrating the two.
Our Yang style classes focus on intelligent fitness with dynamic whole body workouts that help you tone up, activate your core strength and stabilize your muscles and joints to prevent injury.
▾ Osho Dynamic Meditation
This meditation is a fast, intense and thorough way to break old, ingrained patterns in the bodymind that keep one imprisoned in the past, and to experience the freedom, the witnessing, silence and peace that are hidden behind these prison walls.
The meditation is meant to be done in the early morning, when as Osho explains it, “the whole of nature becomes alive, the night has gone, the sun is coming up and everything becomes conscious and alert.”
High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is an enhanced form of interval training alternating periods of short intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. These short, intense workouts provide improved athletic capacity and condition, improved glucose metabolism, and improved fat burning.
▾ Bodyweight Training
To become strong and powerful you don’t need weights, cables or fancy machines. Unlock the power of your own body, using traditional, ancient forms of training techniques evolved by trial and error over the centuries.
▾ Kettle Bells
This class uses dynamic moves of swinging, squatting, pushing and pulling to target every aspect of fitness – endurance, strength, balance, agility and cardio endurance. This is a challenging and efficient workout for the whole body.
▾ Swiss Ball Strength + Balance
In this class the unstable surface of the swiss ball is designed to engage the core and recruits a wide range of small and large muscles to strengthen the whole body. As your balance increases your body will become stronger, more stable and resilient.
▾ Free Movement Dance
This is an open floor dance jam with great music and an all accepting vibe. In this class you can rock out or roll on the floor, jump around or sit in the corner. The only rule: let your body move freely and enjoy the ride.
Our Yin style classes are gentle and rejuvenating. By slowing down and calming the bodymind you will build physical and emotional resilience, mental clarity and vibrant life energy from the inside.
▾ Osho Kundalini Meditation
This “sister meditation” to the OSHO Dynamic is best done at sunset or in the late afternoon. Being fully immersed in the shaking and dancing of the first two stages helps to “melt” the rock-like being, wherever the energy flow has been repressed and blocked. Then that energy can flow, dance and be transformed into bliss and joy. The last two stages enable all this energy to flow vertically, to move upwards into silence. It is a highly effective way of unwinding and letting go at the end of the day.
▾ Yin Yoga
Yin Yoga has the same goals and objectives as any other school of yoga; however, it directs the stimulation normally created in the asana portion of the practice deeper than the superficial or muscular tissues (which we are calling the yang tissues). Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice.
Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of movement that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine to create more fluid and free movement in the body.
▾ Guided Drumming Meditation
This guided meditation uses the sound of the drum to quickly lure your mind, body and spirit into a meditative state. This combo of sound healing and relaxation will help bring a zen state of balance to your day.
▾ Qi Gong
Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention The word Qigong (Chi Kung) is made up of two Chinese words. Qi is pronounced chee and is usually translated to mean the life force or vital-energy that flows through all things in the universe. The second word, Gong, pronounced gung, means accomplishment, or skill that is cultivated through steady practice. Together, Qigong (Chi Kung) means cultivating energy, it is a system practiced for health maintenance, healing and increasing vitality.
▾ Repair + Release
This class will focus on myofascial release to break down scar tissue, relax the muscle and myofascia and restore good posture. We will use foam rollers and various forms of deep tissue work to provide lasting and effective relief of pain and stiffness in the body.
