2:00 PM, Yin Yoga Class
Yin yoga targets deep connective tissues, bones, joints, fascia and ligaments in the body. Working our fascial system and deep tissues keeps our bodies from becoming dense and tight as we age. Yin yoga is great for reducing stress in the body and mind. Holding poses without distraction for several minutes teaches us to relax. We begin to release tension that is deeply ingrained in our muscles. Static stretching increases range of motion. Therefore if you are tight due to repetitive movement from other sports activities, or your day job keeps you in the same position all day, Yin yoga will help stretch it out.
3:30PM, Basic Hatha Yoga
The word Hatha is formed from two Sanskrit words. The word “Ha” means Sun and the word “Tha” means moon to represent a set of physical elements that make hatha, the yoga practice of balance. It also incorporates elements such as pranayama and meditation to improve oxygen flow to the body as well as focus. Hatha is beneficial to all levels, but for beginners, hatha yoga is a great choice to start practicing and learning how to control your breathing, hold poses, and establish clarity through meditation. We will use physical poses like downward facing dog, mountain pose, and child’s pose, which are basic and gentle in flow to generate strength and flexibility.
Restorative yoga is simply that - restorative. It is the centering of your breath and body - aligning the physical and mental by practicing stillness or gentle movement for extended periods of time. Restorative Yoga provides rest and rejuvenation to muscles and connective tissues. By arranging the body strategically and supporting it with props you'll experience deep rest and healing. You'll get the usual benefits, multiplied many times over because of the long holds. Restorative yoga relieves stress and takes you to a quiet place that is meditative and ideal for processing emotions. Restorative yoga is for everyone, no matter your age or fitness level. Even my 81 year old father takes restorative yoga classes.
Stacy Hobbs is a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher on the path to complete her 300 hour certification. She has training in Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, Children's Yoga, Hatha and Chair Yoga. She is passionate about teaching people how to relax and be present in their lives. Yoga and meditation has changed her life which is why she wants to share these tools with you. Coming to yoga late in life approaching her 50's, Stacy started searching for her "inner truth" and I found it through meditation. Through this practice she felt more centered, grounded and accepting of who she was. From there, yoga seemed to be the perfect active compliment to her meditation practice. In less than a year Stacy decided that teaching yoga/meditation was how she wanted to spend the rest of her time on Earth, even though she wasn't the age or size of your typical yoga instructor.
She found a wonderful teacher with Shannon Caldwell and a welcoming environment with Purple Lotus Yoga Teacher Training and is excited to join the Sacred Space family of instructors.
Stacy has lived in McKinney for over 30 years and is married to the love of her life. She has three grown children and one beautiful grandson. She loves to travel. loves hiking and getting out in nature. Her favorite place to meditate is outdoors among the trees.
