VINI YOGA

SEASONED BEGINNER

“Vini” in loosely translated Sanskrit means “adaption,” and that’s just what this practice is, adapting yoga to the individual. It teaches students to adapt traditional yoga practices to fit their needs, limits, and goals. Viniyoga is also for everyone and anyone, taking our dysfunctional movement patterns (we all have some that create stress on our bodies) and forming new structural and functional movements for our bodies. Because of personalized instruction it is one of the recommended styles for beginners.

There are  a few points that characterize the main difference between the Viniyoga approach and most other forms of yoga poses practice mainly:

Breath and Adaptation

The emphasis on breath as the medium for movement in a pose, and the science of adapting the pattern of breathing in the pose to produce different effects.

Repetition and Stay

The use of repetition into and out of the postures, as well as holding the postures.

Schedule:

Every other Wednesday at 10:45 am (check schedule for dates)

 

Next Vini Yoga Class:

Wednesday, Jan. 22nd - 10:45 am

Yin yoga stretches and targets both the deep connective tissues between the muscles and the fascia throughout the body. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility as the poses stretch and exercise the bone and joint areas. It also helps us to regulate the body's flow of energy. This class is perfect for those seeking to relax and relieve anxiety. Perfect for a recovery day and perfect for those needing a little “me” time. This yoga practice is slow and stretchy so the student feels relaxed, rested and calm.
