Teri Cockerham

Teri Cockerham instructs the following:
  • Gentle Yoga
  • More warm ups are provided, sun breaths are used instead of sun salutations and postures are not held as long. Inversions offered are gentle in nature such as legs up the wall. Each posture is taught with modifications to accommodate any level.

  • Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga
  • Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga is much more than reducing stress and gaining strength. It is a time to intimately connect with the life growing inside. Explore the spiritual transformation of motherhood with yoga, breath work and meditation.

    • Learn conscious relaxation techniques to restore energy and build confidence
    • Experience whole body breathing to connect with the body’s natural rhythms
    • Practice vocal toning as a tool for awareness
    • Learn yoga postures to integrate the mind with the body’s rapid changes

    Appropriate for women who are pregnant, planning to become pregnant and those who have just had a baby.

  • Yin Yoga
  • A quiet practice, a series of long, slow postures that targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Poses are held from 1-5 minutes long.

  • YinYasa (fusion of Yin and Vinyasa Yoga)
  • The fusion of Yin yoga with Vinyasa flow creates an integrated, balanced 75-minute yoga practice. The Vinyasa portion is flowing movement requiring strength and balance. The heat and internal awareness generated burns off excess energy allowing for a quieting of the body and mind in order to drop more fully into the Yin portion. These longer held poses are designed to release connective tissues and create space and integrity in the joints; allowing energy to flow through the body.

  • Gentle/Level 1
  • An excellent introductory class where beginners can learn and improve on their poses and breathing. Experienced students can focus on the foundations of their practice. Modifications are provided for all levels.

  • Restorative Deep Stretch
  • This deep stretch practice is a combination of yin and restorative postures designed to increase mindfulness, flexibility, and release blockages to the internal energy flow through the more dense connective tissues of the body. This class will include gentle adjustments and aromatherapy. The combination of formats leaves you feeling nourished, relaxed and rejuvenated.

  • Slow Flow
  • Slow, deep and mindful. A meditation in motion that invites you to cultivate a steadiness of mind as you go deep into the physical and subtle/energetic body. Emphasizes the integration of inner and outer, breath and body, mind and heart. Variations of postures given so you can challenge your edge or take it down a notch.
