Lindsay Knieper

Lindsay Knieper instructs the following:
  • Yin Yoga
  • Yin from the perspective of Chinese Medicine. Balancing our Yin & Yang energies by fleshing out the five basic phases of movement (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water).

  • 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.
