What is Viniyoga™?   It 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.

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 new students must take the Intro Workshop before attending the Back Care Series.

“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.

Fabulous New 5-Session Series Coming After the Holidays!

Quiet Yoga

 

 

5-Session Series
Thursdays:  6:00-7:30pm

  (Dates for the series will be announced in December)

The Indian practice of Mauna means silence

When the awareness of the body moves beyond the musculo-skeletal realm, there’s a call for integration of all the layers of being. Restorative yoga is the art of long held, supported asana. Iyengar Yoga has a long tradition of restorative practices. In this practice we work with quietude, breath, body systems and organs in a much deeper way than in regular asana class.

The Indian practice of Mauna means silence, silence of the mind, as in the attitude of silence. In this series, we apply the idea of silence and quietude to continue our observation of the organic layer of the being, the pranamaya kosa. We combine the restorative practices with the practice and experiencing of silence as a pure state of being.

Each week of this series will be dedicated to one of those special sequences to foster and create quiet, rest the nervous system, and fill up the natural energy reserves of the body. Building upon the Women Class Series, each week will concentrate on a special sequence to restore our connection to the body, mind and soul.

Week 1: The Woman’s Restorative Sequence
Week 2: Supporting Your Immune System
Week 3: Calming the Mind
Week 4: Working with Insomnia
Week 5: Working with Fatigue

Cost: $175 
(Any missed sessions are not refunded or prorated.  Space is limited to 10 students. 3-student minimum to hold the series.)

Pilates Reformer Jumpboard Class


with Debi

Mondays  10:00 - 10:55am

 

Why you should take this class:

Burn Calories Like a Pyromaniac!!

The added cardio element equals a mega-calorie burn and helps to increase stamina and reduce fatigue. It can sometimes prove exhausting for the first few times, but if you stay consistent, your energy levels are bound to increase.

Get a Kick Out of Finding Your Floating Form

The spring tension is less than the pull of gravity, giving you a longer hang time so you can really concentrate on your form in the air to bring your abs in, lengthen your tailbone on the mat, melt your shoulders away from your ears, keep the ribs buttoned and engage your thighs.

Get Abtastic!

On top of burning mega calories, using the Jumpboard is a great abdominal workout that challenges balance, coordination, and the core in a different setting strengthening your muscles.

Enjoy Low Impact Benefits

Since the reformer has taken gravity out of the equation, these jumps are low impact. (Even lower impact than on a trampoline.) Why is that good? Because it is joint-friendly while getting the same benefits of a high-impact workout!   Low-impact exercises actually help promote healing and recovery by keeping the joint mobile and increasing strength. Also, Pilates Jumpboard classes help to increase metabolism and helps in the conversion of ingested nutrients into the energy you need to function. It also helps to reduce stress and depression because when you exercise, your body emits endorphins, which are believed to be natural painkillers.

Get Your Heart Rate Up While Lying Down

During a Pilates Jumpboard routine, the heart moves at a quickened pace and the heart rate stays up for some minutes, burning calories. The movements make the muscles stronger and helps to shape the muscles, including the heart.
Lying down helps you keep your spine in optimal alignment for the movement. This is one training session you can take lying down!
