How do I fit yoga into my life and stick with it?
Can I practice yoga?
Are you interested in the benefits of yoga, BUT think you cannot practice because…fill in the blank:
I don’t want to or can’t attend classes in a studio or gym
You can practice at home any time you have time
I am not able to get up and down from the floor
Yoga can be practiced in a chair or even a bed
I don’t have the right body type
I’m not in shape enough
I’m not flexible enough
If you can breathe, your body is ready for yoga
I don’t have the right clothes
Just wear the most comfortable, stretchy loose clothes you own
I’m too old…or too young
If you are between the ages of 10-110, you can practice this yoga (and there is yoga for younger children as well)
I don’t have time.
Even 10 minutes a day will change your life for the better

What do you like about teaching viniyoga?
The yoga I practice and teach is designed to meet you exactly where you are. A personal practice that you create with me, a qualified teacher, and do at home on your own is the most powerful way I have found to get the full benefits of yoga. You can find out more about this approach from my teacher, Gary Kraftsow at https://www.viniyoga.com/about/what-is-viniyoga/.
This yoga can be practiced by anyone who is conscious and breathing.
“Control the breath, focus the mind, and direct it into the heart, the source of unending bliss, which constantly calls from within.” T. Krishnamacharya 1889-1989
