Bob's Revolutionary Yoga Class

Bob

Ingenius yoga that creates the milieu for the gentleless if you stuggle with a physical limitation or that allows you to go deep for maximum stretch and strength.


Never stop spinning. Revolutionary in many ways.Bob's Revolutionary Yoga class provides a moderate total-body workout, a meditative breathing practice and sequences of stretches designed to strengthen and release tension in your muscles, calm your mind and nurture your spirit. Though no two classes are exactly the same, each includes a time to dedicate your practice to a personal transformation goal, a warm-up sequence, and a balanced selection of back bends, forward bends and twists in several platforms, including standing, on hands and feet, on hands and knees, on your stomach, sitting and on your back. During relaxation on your back, Bob offers a shoulder press and neck pull to help reset your body alignment.

Guidelines for Taking Bob's Class


Breathe Slowly, Evenly, and Deeply

Breathe in and out through your nose whenever possible. In addition, by constricting the back of your throat, churn the air on both the inhales and exhales making the ‘ocean’ sound only you need to hear. When inhaling, fill your belly first, then fill your chest or simply take air in as long as you can. Exhale slowly and toward the end of the exhale tighten your pelvic floor and pull your belly in, pushing out all the air. Then release these ‘energy locks’ during the inhales.

Treat the Class as Your Personal Time

My class provides you a carefully sequenced and timed flow of postures for you to explore, co-create, and befriend. This means working each posture where it feels good to you and for as long as it feels good to you. Come out of any posture early and stay out for as long as you need to rest. Listen to your muscles. In time you will know when your muscles are happy to work and to be stretched, and when they are not. Whenever your muscles are not happy, keep co-creating and modifying the posture until they are. If the ‘platform’, the position in which the posture begins, is not easily accessible to you, either modify the platform or skip that posture and learn substitute postures that you can access easily.
Keep Your Eyes Closed When You Can

This will strengthen your internal focus and will become easier as you trust your interpretation of my verbal cues. Open your eyes when you want to confirm what I am saying. And when your balance feels precarious, gaze steadily and softly at a focal point in front of you.


Make the Circular Movements Work for You

Consider the mostly circular rotations as permission to move in ways that feel good to you. These small movements, which do not need to be circular, serve four purposes. First, they work and warm the muscles creating them and raise your heart rate, adding to the aerobic benefit of the class. Second, the movements help you spiral deeper into each posture slowly and safely. Third, the movements allow you to explore alignments and angles that you might not have accessed without the movements. Finally, the movements massage tensions from your muscles that are pressing into your mat. For example, when you are standing, you create a foot massage by shifting your weight around the bottoms of your feet.

Meditate on Physical Sensations

Some 80% of the value of the class derives from focusing your mind's attention on the physical sensations of muscles working and stretching and on the details of breathing. As soon as you notice a thought taking you away from these points of focus, gently but quickly bring your attention back without a self-judging thought. With regular practice you will be able to increase the peaceful time between your thoughts.

Transform Pain into an Opportunity to Release Tension

Sometimes, due to an injury or fear, a posture needs to be avoided. But most of the time when you encounter pain or strain in a posture, it is because you have gone into the posture too quickly. Back off on the posture or on the size of the rotations and work the posture at the doorstep of pain. Concentrate on the elements of breathing noted above and the physical sensations you are creating. Wait for an invitation from your muscles to go take on more posture. Where there was pain or strain, there will now be an opportunity to experience the pleasurable sensation of releasing tension in your muscles.Trust Your Body, Mind, and Spirit Will Benefit from Regular Practice.

In each class you can expect a total body workout in which your legs, arms, neck, abdominal and other core muscles will all be worked and stretched somewhat evenly. My intention is for you to work and release tension from every muscle group, vitalize every organ, and tone every cell in your body. As this happens in your body, anxieties and confusions will leave your mind, and your capacity to accept yourself and serve others will grow. The more you practice the more connected you will feel to the moment, your inner spirit, and all beings!

After studying group counseling and meditation, he earned certifications as a Psychosynthesis Counselor, a Holistic Lifestyle Teacher, a Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy Practitioner (for individuals and groups), an Integral Yoga Teacher, and a Yogassage Practitioner. More recently, he completed Alyssa Cohen's Living on Live Foods Level 3 Teacher Certification and Certified Laughter Leader trainings. After teaching 5,000 hours of yoga classes, Bob has been a Yoga
Alliance registered yoga teacher at the advanced 500 level since 2002.


Why I Teach Revolutionary Yoga

Perhaps due to an early childhood injury and 20 years of jogging, the arthritic symptoms I developed in my hips resisted treatment from a wide array of medical and energy healers. However, these symptoms respond favorably to the style of yoga I developed over the past 10 years. Emotional well-being follows my physical healing. To me, this is a strong spiritual calling. I love yoga because it works for me on many levels. Over and over, I hear students declare profound physical benefits and shifts in the way they feel and the way they live. I love that several have become successful yoga teachers.

Chelsea Fish Hatha Flow for Beginners 
    Connection and Fun are the key to this class.

This class seeks to connect us to our inner balance by focusing on foundations of flow, alignment, breath work,
and meditation techniques for beginners or more advanced practitioners looking to re-connect to themselves
and their practice.  The class I teach is a mix of postures, salutations, and relaxing breath work from the hatha
yoga tradition.  This class is also a space for growth, fun, creativity, peace, and connectedness.  Come as you are!

Chelsea Fish Bio

   

I came to yoga as a way to find balance during college years.  Through this practice, my external life seemed
to fall into place leading me to a healthier lifestyle and more flow!  This richness is the gift of yoga that I hope
to share with others.  Last spring, I completed a 200-hour teacher training at the White Lotus Foundation in
Santa Barbara, California where I discovered the importance of creativity in yoga.  I hope to create a space
that invites beginners into the practice for the sake of themselves and the earth in a non-intimidating,
non-dogmatic approach.  I believe that everyone can benefit – body, mind, and spirit- from a personal
yoga practice.

Denise Inacio's Bio

Denise Denise began to practice in 2006 , in a gym. That first yoga class she took made an immediate impact-- she knew that she had found a key with yoga that would open doors for her for a lifetime.

Denise has discovered that working through the physical body is her way to reach the more  subtle levels  of  her higher self ( her being); she uses the tools of yoga to more deeply explore her existence. Sharing this experience with others is her gift to herself. She enjoys witnessing each person's unique  expression of practice.

A perfect day for Denise begins on her yoga mat with her personal practice, followed by a motorcycle ride to the beach  with a good book  for some serious relaxation.

Evalyn's Restorative Yoga

Stress is the mother of all disease an malfunctions. Relax and restore. Destress and begin the healing process. Long poses, supported by blocks, cushions, blankets etc.
 
Stress is the mother of all disease and malfunctions of the body. Evalyn's class focuses on relaxing the mind thru the internal practice of paying attention to breath and let all else fall away. The postures are held for at least 2.5 minutes and at most 10 minutes. Each week we work on different aspects of the body, such as lymphatic system, spine, total architecture. Sometimes we focus on specific areas of the body.But it is always a supportive yoga class which  allows the body temperature to increase thru deep breathing, compression and prolonged supported asanas.

Raising the body's temperature reduces the viscoscity of synovial fluid which allows the thinner warmed fluid to flow to connective tissue of joints, lubricating them and nourishing and promoting healing. Also it increases range of motion. Compression postures also create a conducive body environment to move lymphatic fluids to heighten the immune system. Come to class so you can enjoy the experience of leaving the class feeling like a marshmallow.

Request Now

This yoga class is for the independant student or the student who likes the team experience. It can suit everyone. Sometimes we just cannot find a sub and our regularly scheduled teacher has experienced a turn that prevents their attendance to class. So rather than interrupt your practice and your studio time it is for those who want yoga and there is no teacher available. The class room
will be set up in stations with  pose cards  on each station. They are easy to understand.
   
Hold the pose for 7 breaths, flow into the next pose; when all the poses on the mat have been satisfied move to the next mat. Do only one side of the body on the first round and then circulate again for the second round on the opposite side of the body. When multiple students attend each student will take a different starting mat.  

It is a wonderful opportunity to experience Yoga and the inner voice. It is a wonderful opportunity to move to your own depth and comfort. Try it at least once when ever it will be offered. Check the side board for the
opportunity.
