YOGA NIDRA & SELF REIKI

Ever wondered what it's like to be conscious while you're sleeping? Well… turns out there's yoga for that: Yoga Nidra, or ‘yogic sleep’. Yoga Nidra refers to a state of consciousness between waking & sleeping, like that moment just before falling asleep. The goal in Yoga Nidra is to completely relax. In short: during a Yoga Nidra class, the instructor guides you through a supercharged power nap. Yoga Nidra has been around for a long-long time. The first mention is in the Mahabharata, a Sanskrit text that’s so old nobody can figure out when it was actually written. It's basically the antidote to stress & anxiety for stressed-out peeps. Slowly but surely it’s also being adopted in treating PTSD patients. Bring a blanket, pillow, yoga mat and anything else to make yourself comfortable. You don't need any yoga experience for our Yoga Nidra class.

YOGA SCULPT 45

Our most intensive cardio class, where yoga meets muscle, Tribe Yoga’s Yoga Sculpt is born. Boosting metabolism and building lean muscle mass are key components as you move to upbeat tracks. You’ll combine free weights with Power Yoga sequencing and cardio exercises to intensify each yoga pose while mixing in strength-training moves like squats, lunges and bicep curls. Bring a bottle of water & a mat towel (to soak up that sweat!) and ideally fitted workout clothes that are sweat wicking. Bring small hand weights. Previous experience in our Power Yoga or Flow Yoga classes is a plus. This class is not suitable for woman who are pregnant. Previous yoga experience is recommended.

CBD THIRD EYE FLOW

Atlanta PopUp Yoga offers four distinct CBD-ENHANCED YOGA experiences. Each class thoughtfully brings together the transformative power of CBD + Yoga to holistically promote overall health and wellbeing. Drain out the sludge and recharge your batteries. CBD enhances the soothing, restorative & mood balancing effects of yoga & mindfulness practices facilitating a return of the mind-body and spirit back to a state of homeostasis from states of nervous hyperarousal. Both Yoga & CBD cannabinoids naturally stimulate one of the body's major central regulatory system known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS) via μ-opioid receptors. The ECS is a neuromodulatory system that enhances the mind-body connection by regulating the immune, nervous, and digestive systems that are often overtaxed and out of balance in anyone living a fast-paced, modern lifestyle.

ROCKET 1

Rocket Yoga is a dynamic flow lovingly created by Larry Schultz in San Francisco. The name comes from guitar player Bob Weir of The Grateful Dead. Larry was touring with the band and teaching them yoga. Bob asked Larry… ‘what’s the name of this sequence... it’s great!". Larry did not have a name for it—Wier then called it “The Rocket!” “because it gets you there faster!!” And it stuck. Larry joked he never knew where “there” was… but he would get there faster anyway :) Rocket-style flow is our signature variation. This flowing and organized sequence of postures is designed to create a symmetry of strength, flexibility and balance. Take this class at your own pace and don't forget to have some fun! Previous yoga experience is recommended.

Mindfulness helps me lead with less of a fixed view of the way things need to be. I’m more open to other’s ideas and more willing to critique my own actions and honestly assess their impact on others.
— K. Phipps, CEO
I can connect on an emotional level with people more than I’d ever done before. Sometimes, as a busy doctor, you get concerned with the clock. Now I’m more in touch with the needs of the patient.
— M. Ehrlich, M.D.

Chair and Senior Yoga

Chair yoga (and yoga in general, really) includes breath work, which can help people not only with stress management but also for coping and managing pain. Through meditation and paying attention to your breath, you can help your body and mind to cope with the pain of an illness or condition you may suffer with. Scientifically proven benefits include:

Improved strength: Enables elderly people to be better able to continue with hobbies and daily activities independently for many more years to come.

Improved flexibility: Chair yoga can help those with mobility issues to undertake activities that at they have perhaps been unable to, such as reaching down to tie shoe laces.

Improved proprioception: Proprioception is the skill of knowing where your body is in space, and coordinating your movements accurately. This is particularly important for elderly people and can prevent falls. For people with disabilities or conditions such as MS, it may mean having greater control over your body and its movements.

Reduced stress and improved mental clarity: Chair yoga can lessen the impact of chronic illnesses and pain. For elderly people, it may also help them cope with feelings of isolation, if this is a problem. Being calmer and more relaxed inevitably leads to a greater feeling of happiness and wellbeing, which everyone can benefit from!

Opportunities to meet people and socialize: Joining chair yoga classes for those with mobility issues and the elderly will also give them a venue to socialize and make friends.

Improved stress and pain management: Chair yoga (and yoga in general, really) includes breath work, which can help people not only with stress management but also for coping and managing pain. Through meditation and paying attention to your breath, you can help your body and mind to cope with the pain of an illness or condition you may suffer with.
