Lindsay Knieper



Lindsay Knieper instructs the following:
  • Open Level Vinyasa
  • This class caters to all levels, with clear instruction for those who are new to the Vinyasa practice, and more advanced offerings for students who want a challenge. Nothing is required, and staying in the realm of your own level is encouraged.
    {The Vinyasa style is born from the Ashtanga Yoga tradition, developed by the great Pattabhi Jois, whose teacher was the inimitable Krishnamacharya (“the father of modern yoga”). A typical Vinyasa class warms the body through sun salutations; flowing movements, using conscious breath as a metronome. As your teacher leads you through his or her own mapped-out, sequenced design, you have the opportunity to explore your presence in a variety of poses, some with longer holds than others. Some Vinyasa classes are themed toward a peak pose or class of poses, while some touch on all or a selection of the various classes of poses: standing poses, forward bending, backbending, twisting, hip and side openers, and inversions. Pranayama (breath work), meditation and bandha work (work with the 3 locks of the body) are also found tucked into many a Vinyasa class. Each class is a new experience.}

  • Hatha
  • This gentler style is a great foundation and a solid support for more active practices. Focus on alignment in poses, breath awareness, meditation, relaxation. Your guide will lead you through simple sequences, helping you to find ease in poses with the aid of your breath and a focused mind. This is a great class to take if you are a beginner yogi, and also good for more advancing practitioners who value more time to explore, refine and balance their practice. 

  • Yoga for Rookies
  • This class is designed for the beginner yogi, as well as the more advancing practitioner who wants to get back to the basics, or learn how to teach fundamentals. Your teacher will lead you through fundamentals of the practice of asana (poses), touch on pranayama (breath work) and give you little tastes of the practice of meditation. This class will ready you for more challenging classes by teaching you alignment and poses, easeful awareness of your breath, and contentment in sitting with stillness. The pace is slower and the structure of the class is more like a workshop, to allow for more specific teaching of poses and hands-on adjustments.

  • Vinyasa I ~ Super Slow Flow
  • This class won’t rock you til you drop. It will cradle you in it’s arms and serenade you while you flow slowly toward savasana (final relaxation). It’s like practicing moving through molasses. This practice cultivates a slower, mindful, nourishing flow, and gears toward those people who are new-ish to Vinyasa, or feel zapped but need to motor. Some poses are held, while the teacher cues alignment and breath awareness for more ease and inward journeying.
