Back Care Series

 

Thursdays, July 26 - August 23, 2018
12:00 -s 1:30pm

  •  Give yourself the gift of knowledge and self care for your back!
     
    For all those new to Iyengar yoga and the practice of back care, as well as those that are seasoned practitioners and want to learn and practice with a focus on the back. This class moves a bit slower than your regular yoga or fitness class, emphasis is the step-by-step guidance for setting up the poses and working with the back.
     
    We will work with principles of alignment, lengthening the spine, creating joint space, using the breath and breathing awareness, experiential anatomy and yogic principles of practice. For all types of structural problems, including pain and postural problems, including scoliosis, knees, hips, neck and shoulder issues. All are welcome.
     
    “I highly recommend the Back Care series with Patricia Videgain to anyone with any type of back or neck issue. After hurting my back several months ago, I was afraid that I would not be able to return to yoga or regular exercise. Through Patricia's instruction I am now nearly pain free. I have learned how to modify my yoga practice and work through the inevitable occasional flare-up as I continue to gain strength, flexibility, and balance.” – Vera M.

At Lotus Mind & Body, Pilates mat classes are taught by fully-certified, seasoned instructors, using the classical method - just as Joe Pilates would've wanted!  Each 55-minute class follows the beginner/intermediate format, and incorporates Pilates-specific props like Magic Circles and Triad balls to further challenge stability, precision and form.  

New to Pilates?  Our mat classes are open to all levels, and are a great way to try out the Pilates Method.  Modifications are always provided for challenging intermediate exercises, but for those with any chronic back and neck conditions, private sessions are recommended prior to attending any type of Pilates class.

Sol Path Yoga

 

Foundational Principle for

 

June:  Liberation

The practice of detachment or letting go can lead to liberation. Liberation lies in letting go of what we don’t need or is no longer serving us. Liberation also comes from the realization that happiness and inner peace are not dependent on external factors or a particular outcome. Living with an open mind and open heart allows us to be open to infinite solutions and possibilities.-- Chara

 

12 Sacred Principles to Illuminate Your Journey On and Off the Mat.

Sol Path Yoga is a unique form of yoga that focuses on twelve foundational principles that support practitioners on and off the mat. Each class is choreographed with care to effectively support your journey of wellbeing and personal growth. You will find the experience to be an uplifting blend of movement, postures, alignment, breath-work, and guided meditation…lovingly woven together with words of inspiration. Each month we explore, practice and reflect on one of twelve foundational principles: Present Moment Awareness, Love, Truth, Abundance, Balance, Liberation, Clarity, Contentment, Inner Fire, Self-understanding, Trust and Celebration. Each principle teaches a skill set that deepens the practitioner’s awareness so they may take their insights off the mat and live from a place of greater illumination and empowerment.

Head to Chara.tv for more information about Chara, Sol Path Yoga, and all 12 Foundational Principles.

 

 

 

Viniyoga™  Added to Regular Schedule
StandingTwist_viniyoga.jpeg
 
With Julie Shaw
 
Now Every Wednesday
10:30am - 11:45am
 
Join Julie Shaw for this nourishing style of yoga!

Viniyoga™ is an authentic transmission of the teachings of yoga, including āsana (postures), prāṇāyāma (breath work), chanting/mantra, meditation, and personal ritual.*  These yoga tools are adapted to meet the unique condition, needs and interests of each student. In this way, each practitioner has the opportunity to individualize and actualize her/his self-discovery and personal transformation. The emphasis in a Viniyoga class is on “the person, not the poses.” If you are looking to deepen your practice with authentic teachings, please give Viniyoga a try.
 
(*Gary Kraftsow, MA, E-RYT 550, C-IAYT, evolved the Viniyoga™ approach to yoga from the teachings transmitted by T. Krishnamacharya and T.K. V. Desikachar of Madras, India.)
 
No previous experience required.  All are welcome.

The Yin Practice is Quiet and Deeply Energetic.

This 75-minute class:
• Is perfect for all yogis of any experience level
• Will be mostly done on the floor
• Focuses on the joints of the back, hips and legs
• Brings health to the body’s deeper and less-elastic tissues (joints, tendons, and fascia)
• Explores holding the poses for a long time…anywhere from 2-10 minutes
• Taps into the “stuff” active yang practices can’t reach
• Incorporates meditation as part of the practice
• Offers a much-needed break from our fast-paced yang lifestyles

All are welcome.
