All Yoga classes are rooted in the Viniyoga tradition which strives to serve the needs, interests, and capacity of each student. Movements are coordinated with the breath to enhance their effectiveness, and postures are sequenced to maximize a particular effect such as back strengthening or shoulder mobility. We move in and out of postures repeatedly before holding to ensure your body is prepared, thereby reducing the risk of injury or strain. The emphasis of each posture is on its intent and benefit for your body, not on a predetermined form. Viniyoga is user-friendly and customizes to your need.
