Each class consists of ½ hour of Seated Meditation, Chanting and Pranayama, followed by 1.5 hours of rotating asana practice, guided by the Vijnana Yoga International practice manual. Experienced yogis who are new to Vijnana yoga are welcome. Familiarity with inversions is a prerequisite. To join the mailing list, and receive advance updates on what the weekly asana practice will be, please contact hannamunnekeyoga@gmail.com.

Price: $15 Drop in. 6 class pass: $80, 10 class pass $125.

Gentle Hatha Repair by donation

In restorative yoga, props such as bolsters and blankets are used to fully support the body, allowing it to open slowly and naturally with no effort. Concentration is on the breath, allowing for a deep introspective class which restores energy to the body and calmness to the mind.

in The Pond Dome

Our largest space, with wooden flooring and views of the meadow - the Pond Dome is open Spring through Summer, and offers a tranquil, private setting away from the main house and gardens. A newly installed heater keeps the Pond Dome warm enough for early-morning asana practice, while the adjustable side-panels allow for breezes and fresh air to cool the space later in the day.

Restorative and Yoga Nidra

This class combines two powerful practices for calming the mind and relaxing the body: restorative yoga and yoga nidra. The first hour of class consists of restorative yoga, in which poses are held for several minutes at a time with support from props like blankets, bolsters, blocks, and straps. This invites the body to gently open and relax, and it helps the nervous system transition to a state in which the body and mind can process, rest, and renew in a deep way. The final half hour will consist of a brief yoga nidra practice. Yoga nidra (literally ‘yogic sleep’) is a practice done lying down, and it involves various body awareness and visualization techniques. Students are guided right to the edge of sleep while still remaining fully conscious. The result can be a sense of deep relaxation and calm, and yoga nidra serves as a great way for those unfamiliar with meditation to get a taste of some of its profound effects.

Tensegrity Repair Series Basics

The Tensegrity Repair Series is a movement sequence designed by Gioia Irwin of Vancouver, BC, which focuses on tuning into the myofascial network of the body, and how it relates to our skeletal structure. Done mostly lying on the back, these movements help to tone and strengthen the core, breakdown knots and adhesions throughout the body, and rehydrate the fascia for greater joint mobility and overall balanced and connected body function. Relaxing, yet invigorating, the Tensegrity Repair Series can be helpful in recovery from injury, chronic pain, or stress related tension, and can also provide a stable base from which to grow your yoga or movement practice.

Price: $15 Drop in. 6 class pass: $80, 10 class pass $125.

Iyengar Yoga

Longer holdings and study of the asana (poses) cultivate the structure for the breath and take the student deeper inward. The Iyengar method of yoga is known for detail, alignment and sequencing, which ultimately work on the consciousness, moving the student towards dharana, dhyana, and samadhi, embracing all eight limbs of yoga. This class will teach you the fundamentals of Iyengar yoga poses and prepare you for more advanced poses. All welcome.
