About Bliss Yoga Alaska: Welcome to Bliss Yoga Alaska with Kate Gibbs, RYT 200. At Bliss Yoga Alaska we are all about loving adventure and playing in nature. This is where we strive to offer the sort of yoga that creates space where everyone can feel welcome. Bliss Yoga Alaska classes are tailored to the student. All classes are alignment-based hatha yoga with some Anusara influence, vinyasa flow elements, and a little Iyengar style sprinkled in. Expect creative sun salutations, modifications, props, and deep attention to the breath.
Community is key for Bliss Yoga Alaska. Here we strongly believe that yoga should be available to everyone which is why Kate and fellow teachers offer free and donation based community classes, acro jams, and teacher support groups. Bliss Yoga Alaska’s intention is to continually invest in the world around us and hold space for those who need it.
Class days and times change seasonally. Currently, Kate offers public classes on Sundays, as well as private group classes on Mondays. Kate is available Friday and Monday mornings for private instruction. Prices vary.
Class Descriptions: At Bliss Yoga Alaska our classes focus on proper foundation and alignment while refreshing the mind and restoring even energy to the body. Most classes are appropriate for students of all skill levels; building strength and stamina through core work and moderate holds. Classes that are specific to a certain skill level or background, like acroyoga, will be noted. The majority of our classes utilize some variation of sun salutations and mellow vinyasa-style flows to warm the body before moving into deeper postures. Themes rotate every 4-6 weeks, using the time to gradually work into a peak pose or movement skill. Props and modifications are offered to make all poses more accessible. Breath work, meditation, and chanting may be included. Come to class and find your bliss!
