Viniyoga w/ Katie Clark
Sundays at 9am (Begins THIS Sunday May 1!)
Katie has been a student of primarily Iyengar yoga since the early 90’s. She began her deep dive into the Viniyoga method over a decade ago. There, she found a creative use of breath in tandem with familiar structural principles that brought on some profound personal healing. Katie has studied with Mirka and Gary Kraftsow, as well as Lynn Weinberger (locally).
Katie says, "the word 'yoga' translates as 'yoke' and literally refers to the magic that happens when we link our breath with movement. Viniyoga is a methodology that makes use of this idea and can empower us - each class - to affect change and healing within our bodies. I add much personal experience with this healing work with a sense of humor and delight in the multitude of ways we all perceive the world and our journeys here."
Katie's describes her style of instruction as easy to comprehend and says her classes tend to be fun as well as quite deep. "Beginners are always welcome as no one is “too stiff” or has terrible hamstrings. This can be a great opportunity to bring a friend or family member who might like to try yoga. Every body is always welcome to my classes! I can modify for all levels, ages and abilities."
"Many of us have been so grateful for zoom classes and YouTube, but a special synergy happens when we gather together to practice. This shared experience is fun and creates the sense of community that so many of us are seeking."
Hatha Yoga w/ Stacey Mulvey
Thursdays 5:30pm (starts 5/12)
Stacey loves teaching movement, viewing it as a spectrum of energy--from yin to yang and everything in between. She teaches a somatic style of Hatha yoga, meaning she teaches yoga in a way that helps people experience their bodies from the inside. Her verbal cues are descriptive and filled with of imagery to describe the movements and help students conceive of their bodies in novel ways.
Her class can expect a slow, gentle but deep yoga that is accessible to beginners while keeping advanced students challenged. The class utilizes ideokineses, which is the method of conceptualizing movement via one's imagination, or with “the mind’s eye."
Stacey teaches group classes and private sessions in Pilates and yoga at Studio M. She holds a yoga certification from Naropa University for yoga.
