Yoga Stretching with Julie Shaw ~ Morning and Evening
Breathe fully, release tension, build strength and balance, improve your body’s functions, and enjoy the feeling of calm energy in this Viniyoga class. Viniyoga is an authentic lineage of yoga based on the teachings of T. Krisnamācārya. Its primary hallmark is adaptation - selecting postures and breath exercises to meet specific needs. Everyone can benefit from this extraordinary yoga tradition – once you try it, you’ll understand! Julie Shaw has practiced yoga for more than 35 years, and loves bringing Viniyoga to students. She is certified with the International Association of Yoga Therapists and trains prospective yoga therapists through American Viniyoga Institute. The class is suitable for everyone, whether you are a beginner or a yoga veteran. Please bring a yoga mat, block, and blanket.
