Viniyoga: Gentle


This class is taught by:

Katie Lieberman

Katie expresses the heart of yoga this way, "The essence of yoga is clear vision - from the first moment we step on the mat our notion of who we are and what we want begins to change. The pleasantries of flexibility and relaxation are only a taste of what's to come. We find ourselves on a path that dissolves the ideals of life and reveals the spectacular reality of the present moment."
 
Katie has been teaching yoga in the Viniyoga approach for 20 years. She is a licensed esthetician with advanced certification in aromatherapy. 

Karen Lee

Yoga is the experience of being in this moment, right now, fully inhabiting this body-mind, creating a state of clarity from which we can act with authenticity, or at least have a moment before impulsive reactions set in. Cultivating presence we relax about getting it or not getting it and surrender to the moment as it is.

 

As owner of Breathing Time Yoga, Karen is dedicated to creating a community and space for healing through yoga. Karen is an educator, teaching the students what they need to know to practice and how to match the practices to their unique needs and interests.

 

Karen has been studying Viniyoga since 1994 with Gary Kraftsow of the American Viniyoga Institute (AVI). She is an AVI Yoga Teacher (500-hr) and AVI Certified Yoga Therapist. Karen also holds an MAT from RISD.

Viniyoga Therapeutic classes provide an opportunity for students with chronic conditions to experience the benefits of yoga in a way that works for them and addresses chronic aches and pains with gentle therapeutic yoga techniques while gently gaining strength.
 
The Viniyoga method of yoga is based on the deep relationship between breath and movement, experiencing yoga from the inside out and providing a sound approach to practicing yoga postures (asana). The deep slow rhythmic breath that you will master naturally creates a calm and focused mind and reduces stress on a physiologic level. The Viniyoga teacher incorporates safe and effective sequencing, and adaptation of poses to suit individual needs. Viniyoga classes may at times include seated breath awareness (pranayama), meditation and other yogic techniques.
