"Suspension-Extension Coyopa Yoga": Mota Thai Yoga.

  community member   < less

Yoga--unlike other yoga class you've taken before. This high intensity class uses straps (similar to TRX) to stretch muscles that can be difficult to stretch in other exercises. Class starts with some stretching, and once the body warms up, begins to pick up the pace. You will work on a flow sequence that will get the heart rate up. The straps are used to help balance and stretch deeper (and safely) into yoga postures. Usually you will feel the stretches in your tighter/weakest muscles first. Your first couple classes may be intense, but if you continue to come to this class, you will notice big changes! This class can help build strength, relieve pain, release tension, increase flexibility, and prevent injury. The studio will be heated between 90-95 degrees for this class, so bring a water bottle. Your first class at the studio is free!
You can park in the studio's parking lot for free. Same parking lot as the Yellow Barn. Look for the #22 blue door with a red buddha on it.
Mota Thai Yoga, 416 W. Huron Street, #22. $20 drop in (or package prices). info@motathaiyoga.com www.motathaiyoga.com [map]

"Donation YinYasa Yoga": Mota Thai Yoga.

  community member   < less Donation YinYasa

This ONLINE Yoga class is taught through Zoom. Register at https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/classic/ws?studioid=424765&stype=-7&sView=week&sLoc=0
Please register AT LEAST 15 minutes before class starts. Make sure your email address is correct when you register, as we will be emailing you the login information. You will receive this information at least 15 minutes before class begins. At this point, all of our classes are donation-based as we would like everyone to be able to access them. Our donation options are between $0-20 per class.
This class is a combination of Yin and Vinyasa Yoga. Some postures are held for longer periods of time than a typical yoga class. This allows the muscles to relax, and the deep connective tissues to be gently stretched. In between these postures, movement and flowing between postures will be done to create internal heat.
(When open, Mota Thai Yoga is located on Huron Street, across from the YMCA.)
Mota Thai Yoga, 416 W. Huron Street, #22, Ann Arbor, MI 48103. Donation. info@motathaiyoga.com motathaiyoga.com [map]
