Yin/Restorative Yoga

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Strap Stretch and Release

 

Jamie Alascia

Yin/Restorative Yoga: This class will combine both Yin and Restorative poses to allow your body to open and release deeply. We use body weight and props to accomplish this, and anyone of any ability level can benefit from this wonderful class!

Yoga Nidra  – Yoga Nidra is a state between sleeping and waking. The body is completely relaxed and made comfortable through props, and Jamie then helps to turn the awareness inward by walking your conscious mind around each part of your body to help it relax even further. It is much like a guided meditation, but the state of relaxation is much deeper and results in complete relaxation and expansion the individual’s self-awareness. Drop in rate is $15 or save by purchasing a multi class pass, both available at www.danceyogaheal.com

Yoga Strap Stretch and Release –  Yoga straps are an extremely diverse tool that allows the user to stretch more comfortably, safely, and sometimes more deeply. In this class, we will explore the many ways they can be used in a wide variety of poses that make the practice more comfortable and accessible. Special straps with loops are provided that reduce or eliminate the hand fatigue that usually accompanies their use. Class is limited to 10 participants. Please sign up at www.danceyogaheal.com

Viniyoga Classes

 

Lloyed and Dona croppedViniyoga is a Tradition Developed by Gary Kraftsow

Gary Kraftsow studied for about ten years with Krishnamacharya and his son, Desikachar.  They then told him he was to complete his studies in anatomy and physiology at the University.  Gary remembers saying, “I don’t want to teach science I want to teach yoga.”  He was told it was his path to combine the science of the West with their teachings of yoga.

Gary Kraftsow has written two books about Viniyoga..  The first book, “Yoga for Wellness”,  is a summary of case histories for various conditions.  The second book, “Yoga for Transformation”, by Gary Kraftsow emphasizes the deeper meditative aspects of yoga.  The focus of Viniyoga is to respect each unique individual and fit the yoga practice to the individual. The structure of each person is unique and this unique structure is further amplified by our life experiences.  For example, some people have flat upper backs and some have rounded upper backs, so poses that emphasize that part of the back will be adapted for each pose, so each person will benefit.  The practice of Viniyoga helps you to discover yourself.

Viniyoga encourages you to feel the movement of the body as you explore the benefit of the experience.  The repeated movement in and out of poses allows the body to “warm up to the experience” and DISCOVER new ways of being present with the pose.  Repeated movements also benefit by increasing circulation into specific areas of the body.  In addition to repeated movements there are a variety of ways to hold the body in the pose to experience additional benefits of opening and relaxing our body.  Viniyoga provides numerous experiences of each pose.

Breath is an integral part of Viniyoga.  The experience of the body is affected by the length of the breath while moving in and out of the pose and holding the pose for a specific number of breaths.  Learning to be present with the breath brings focus to the practice and is calming to the mind.  Many students report a sense of serenity and peace after the practice.  Keeping the mind focused on the breath can reduce stress.  Viniyoga adapts the breath to fit your specific needs.

Breath is an integral part of Viniyoga.

We hope you will be interested in exploring the benefits of Viniyoga!!!

Hatha, Slow Vinyasa and Vinyasa Yoga

 

STYLES OF CLASSES

Yiwen ChangHatha: This class is paced slow enough for students to learn the mechanics and anatomical alignment of each yoga pose and to experience the energetics of yoga movement. Various breath controls will be taught. Suitable for students new to yoga, as well as great for yoga teachers and experienced yogis to get a refresher on technique. Aromatherapy will be offered in class on occasion.

Slow VinysaYoga: While slower in movement than Vinyasa Yoga, students will be mentally and physically challenged to create tapas (heat that burns off impurities in the body). Students will be guided to move and engage where the energy circuitry is turned on throughout the body. Breath practice is key. Suitable for all levels of students. Students are encouraged to practice in accordance to one’s pace and rest when needed. Experienced yogis will be challenged to cultivate stability in order to access subtler dimensions. Best suited for students with experience.

Vinyasa Yoga: This is a rhythmic, energetic flow of yoga sequences based on a garland of asanas (poses) designed for individuals looking to further increase strength and flexibility, as well as to improve breath control. With dedicated regular practice, one will feel energized, stronger and more limber. The format of a typical class consists of the following: warm up, strength/cardio, stretch, twist and finishing. Expect heat and sweat!
