Small Group & Private Yoga Training

Vinyasa Flow simply means to connect breath with movement. All poses flow into the next and are meditative in nature. Various postures build upon each other so that flexibility is optimized and strength increased while balancing and calming the mind. The pace can be fast or slow depending on the individual needs of each student in the class. Regardless of level, each student will leave class feeling challenged, rejuvenated, and energized.

Hatha Yoga means to practice individual postures for short periods of time in preparation for a deep meditation. Through this extended, 90 minute practice, students will become relaxed, centered, and increasingly flexible. Hatha Yoga guides students through postures in a balanced manner by incorporating Pranayama (breathing exercises) at a moderate pace. Hatha can be translated as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha) or “yoga of balance” in Sanskrit.
Power Yoga is a workout-based class which is guaranteed to make you sweat! With a focus on building internal heat, you will build strength and stamina. Coupled with flowing, stretching asanas, you will leave class feeling energized! Because of the flowing and athletic nature of this class, it is ideal for intermediate/advanced level clients.
Gentle Yoga is a restorative form of Yoga focusing on stretch and relaxation. This peaceful, slower paced class is ideal for beginners or clients wanting a gradual introduction to yoga. The perfect way to counter the daily stresses of life, you will leave this class feeling calm & refreshed.
Yin Yoga is a slower paced class in which postures, or asanas, are held for longer periods of time (2-5 min each) allowing the muscles and joints to fully release. With an emphasis on the lower extremities (hips, pelvis, inner thighs, and lower back), clients will release tension both physically and emotionally. Its meditative nature also creates inner peace and silence.
Yoga Stretch & Release focuses on increasing mobility, flexibility, and finding your body’s “blind spots.” It incorporates self-massage via Yoga Therapy Balls, traditional yoga poses, stretching, simple strengthening techniques, and release via relaxation. It’s the perfect compliment to your Pilates practice!

Reiki Circle
Saturday, April 8th, 12-1:30pm

Reiki is a healing practice which can help return us to balance on every level – mental, emotional, spiritual – regardless of age. Reiki supports our well-being and strengthens our natural ability to heal. In Japan, Reiki is hands-on, but in the U.S., Reiki is performed with hands a few inches above the body. Reiki is currently used in over 800 hospitals in the U.S. and is one of the top three alternative treatments used. Linda, a certified Reiki practitioner, will facilitate the circle. Each participant will lend their light energy to the Reiki practitioner so that she can channel, ground, and direct that energy to the other participants in the room.

Pilates of Palm Beach in the Press Increase Fertility with Yoga

By: Kelley Dunn

BOYNTON BEACH, Fl. – Erin Haag is used to achieving her dreams. She opened her own Pilates studio in Boynton Beach called Pilates of Palm Beach. She completed numerous marathons and has been married to her dream man, Eric, for 7 years. Her biggest dream, though, hasn’t been as easy to achieve.

Erin Haag says, “My husband and I are big overachievers, but the one thing we wanted more than anything we couldn’t seem to achieve.”

It took them 2 and a half years, two rounds of in-vitro fertilization, and a miscarriage before they had a successful pregnancy.

Dr. Victoria Maizes understands the heartache and anxiety infertile couples go through. She’s a women’s health expert and author of of the new book “Be Fruitful. The Essential Guide to Maximizing Fertility and Giving Birth to a Healthy Child.”

“One of the most important myths is that you can wait,” says Dr. Maizes. “And you can thank Hollywood. Celebrities who are seen having babies in their 40’s and even late 40’s and early 50’s make it look too easy. What’s not being said is they are probably using donor eggs.”

Dr. Maizes says the biological clock is real for women and men. ”

Fertility peaks for women at age 28 and decreases quickly after 35. For men, the issue isn’t having a hard time impregnating but the risk of having a child with autism or schizophrenia go up after the age of 40.”

Diet plays a big role in fertility.

“She says, “Vegetable protein is associated with higher fertility than animal protein. Carbohydrates such as cereals, even the ones that claim to be heart healthy, are not healthy if you are trying to get pregnant. It turns out anything that bumps up our blood sugar makes it harder to conceive.”

She says eat fish, but avoid the kinds known to contain high levels of mercury such as shark, swordfish, tile, king mackerel and limit albacore.

Dr. Maizes says, “If you don’t eat fish at all you’ll have a child with a lower verbal IQ.”

Milk is fine to drink when you are trying to get pregnant but the doctor recommends drinking whole milk.

“When you drink skim milk or lowfat, you are drinking milk with an altered balance of hormones and altered in the direction which makes it harder to get pregnant.”

Avoiding stress is key, but try telling that to a woman who’s having a hard time getting pregnant. Dr. Maizes recommends doing yoga to reduce stress.

“It’s a wonderfully centering, quieting practice that can be part of the fertility journey for women.”

And poses, she says, like the butterfly and the “half moon,” can actually help when you’re trying to conceive.

“These poses really open the lower abdomen and the pelvis. It’s wonderful. You can’t grip in this opening pose for the abdomen.”

Dr. Maizes also recommends acupuncture, especially for women undergoing in vitro.

“If you do acupuncture at the time of embryo transfer you are almost twice as likely to have a live birth.”

Erin Haag started getting acupuncture when she was trying to conceive. She went to Dr. David Green of Green Acupuncture in Boynton Beach.

Dr. Green says. ‘Right now we help Erin with things like her back pain and swelling. Acupuncture is great in this stage of pregnancy because she can’t take pain medication due to the potential risk to the fetus.”

Erin believes all of these recommendations diet, yoga ,acupuncture and fertility treatments helped her and her husband conceive. She is due to deliver their daughter by the summer.
