YwN students learn to use their yoga practice to support their life practice through a range of classes, workshops, and study opportunities that use only trusted methods of Yoga, including:
- Hatha Yoga – the classical Indian system of physical cleansing and purification. The practice emphasizes alignment and form, core postures, yogic breath, and meditation. YwN students explore a variety of yogic philosophies while quickly developing flexibility and strength through detailed attention to body awareness. This system was first brought to the West as early as the 1920’s and is growing in popularity still today.
- Integrative Yoga Therapy – Developed by Joseph LePage – this method is the foundation of my teaching practice. IYT brings together all of the most powerful yoga tools (Asana, Pranayama, Mudra, Yoga Nidra, Mantra, and Meditation) into an experiential approach to learning. Certified in Integrative Yoga Therapy (IYT) since 2002, my teaching practice has become a strong process of discovering which yoga poses, breath work, practices, etc. work for each individual.
- Ashtanga-Vinyasa Yoga & The Primary Series – an athletic system of yoga combining movement and powerful deep breathing in rhythmic flow (Vinyasa). There are 6 main series in the traditional practice as it is taught today in it’s hometown of Mysore, India. The Primary Series consists of 75 basic poses infused with Vinyasa.
- Kundalini Yoga – a specific type of yoga often referred to as ‘the science of the Chakras’. Posture (Asana), breathwork (Pranayam), hand position (Mudra), chanting (Mantra), and meditation mix to create a transformational and awakening experience. Combined with longer meditations and basic Sanskrit chanting, this yoga works directly on the nervous system.
