Yoga SCHEDULE

Instructors

Climbing can put more intense stress on a body than any other sport. Yoga balances out the intensity of climbing by stretching the muscles, promoting balance, increasing core strength, and teaching you how to be in your body. Additionally, yoga teaches climbers how to calm their mind – helping them after a fall or even in the middle of a crux.

At Crux we provide a variety drop-in yoga classes and styles for climbers and yogis alike. All yoga classes are included with a Crux membership or day pass.

Yoga Class Descriptions

V1 Vinyasa is meant for anyone looking to work on the fundamentals and strengthen their understanding of yoga. It is perfect for any level of practitioner to build a strong foundation and knowledge of a flow-based class.

This class will begin with a check in, an exercise in mindfulness through breath moving into a flow that connects each movement to the next with smooth transitions. Focus will be on safe alignment with options to modify postures while offering space to connect with your breath and explore new movement in your body. End with savasana (resting posture) to integrate the hours’ work.

Keywords: alignment, fundamentals, all levels, flow

V2 Vinyasa provides a deeper exploration into the connection of breath and movement. You’ll find that these classes offer opportunities to explore more challenging postures and transitions while still offering modifications to cater to any level of practitioner. Mindful movement and balance are a big focus and playfulness is always encouraged!

If you are looking for a stronger and more rigorous style of practice similar to a power class, V2 will deliver. The only detour would be that the speedier nature of power isn’t necessarily present.

Keywords: posture exploration, modifications, balance

Unwind & Flow classes begin with a slow-paced flow focusing on slow transitions through postures involving balance and mobility. The end of class takes it down a notch with yin-style postures to encourage relaxation and a deep stretch.

Depart from your day and prepare for the one ahead, with this renewing, strengthening, and restful class.

Keywords: slow flow, deep stretch, breath work, warm up and then relax

Learn to release tension in your body through breathing practices and yoga-informed stretching. This class includes intelligent postural progressions to warm up then relieve stress in commonly tense areas of the body. The hour concludes with a set of breathing exercises (also called Pranayama).

Share your injuries or stretch requests with the instructor before class if you’d like the class structured with your needs in mind.

Keywords: stretching, breathing, not flowing

This restorative class focuses on long-held postures using a lacrosse ball or tennis ball to massage specific areas of tension in the fascia (read: connective tissue that encloses the muscle fibers). This style of self-massage is also referred to as self-myofascial release. The class incorporates yogic breathing and poses that help relax the body while massaging it, making tension release all the more sweet.
Keywords: massage, tension release, slow, relaxation

Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures. The word “hatha” can be translated two ways: as “willful” or “forceful,” or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance. These classes are designed to set up your body, mind, and spirit for meditation.

Hatha differs from Vinyasa in that you will not necessarily move, linking one breath to one movement! Thus, the “flow” aspect of class isn’t necessarily present.

Cyoga provides a way to approach a class with a particular focus. The class works with a specific area of the body to prepare and explore the mobility of that area with the intent to work into a more demanding posture at the peak of the class.

Kaiut Yoga Austin is a yoga school focused on delivering individualized classes to all ages and capabilities. Kaiut Yoga is a non-surgical, non-steroidal lifestyle solution to help alleviate chronic shoulder, hip and foot issues such as frozen shoulder, sciatica and other chronic pain. A results-oriented practice designed to allow the body to improve across all systems. Gravity and time are used intelligently bringing the appropriate pressure to joints within the three major girdles (ankle, pelvis, and shoulder). Over time, balance across the system is restored in a body that enjoys more ease and flow. Many students report improved mental health within the first month of regular classes.

Yoga Nidra is an ancient meditation practice that can deeply restore the body and mind. It supports balance in the nervous system; improves learning, focus and concentration; restores emotional and physical balance; and can contribute to relief from insomnia, PTSD, anxiety, depression and everyday stress.
