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.5-Session Series Fee: $175Any missed classes are not refunded or prorated.Intro to Back Care Series required to participate in this Series for all new students.(Workshop is required unless you've already taken part in the Series.)

Sol Path Yoga
Foundational Principle for
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

Yin Yoga -- Judit's away, but she's back again in August!!
(No Judit Yin Yoga classes in July)
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.
