The Viniyoga approach to postures practice is a breath-centric approach, where the inhale and exhale aspect of the breath are viewed as the actions that initiate or occur before the actual intended action (direction of movement). They are also recognized as the actions that sustain the whole length of the given action. The method involves repetition of movement into and out of postures so that the student and teacher can see what unconscious movement patterns are stored in the body; repetition with stay also provides an opportunity to consciously cultivate healthier movement patterns. The goal is understanding the relationship between the breath and the spine. From this approach, a wide variety of uncomfortable situations in the body can be addressed such as neck and shoulder tension or low back discomfort. This class is ideal for anyone who would like to develop a conscious relationship between their breath and their spine, whether they consider themselves a beginner to yoga or an advanced postures practitioner.
Parameters for participation include: the ability to get up and down off the floor without assistance, freedom from medical devices, and no active disc issues. Students with joint replacements, foot, knee, shoulder or wrist issues should seriously consider a personal consultation prior to learn modifications specific to their condition.
