Philosophy and Comments        

Yoga is a science that is thousands of years old. It is a system of applying yourself to unfold the inherent potential that is unique to each of us. Through a practice that is carefully adapted to your needs you develop physical well-being, mental clarity and steadiness, and fulfill the heart/spirit. You cultivate a sense of well-being that benefits all aspects of your being.
Viniyoga has a solid reputation for its practical application of Yoga for the needs of the individual. Teachers are well trained to preserve the ancient teachings of yoga yet bring them alive in a relevant way.
You are encouraged to find what has value for your life, in your own way.

A great resource to complement taking classes is to purchase a copy of "Yoga for Wellness," by Gary Kraftsow. The book contains lots of useful information on adapting Yoga for specific needs. It becomes a tool to guide your practice at home.
